Life Imitates Art: Idol Reveals Having Two Secret Children Just Like Oshi no Ko

The Oshi no Ko anime series, released in Spring 2023, quickly became the most popular new anime series of the season. Its first 90-minute episode remains one of the highest-rated anime episodes ever on IMDb.

Recently, an unusual incident occurred in Japan when an idol revealed that she is a single mother of two children. This revelation was a shock to the industry, including her fans, as no one had known about it.

The situation bears a striking resemblance to the story of AI, the main character in Oshi no Ko. AI became pregnant at the young age of 16, and in order to preserve her career, she had to conceal her pregnancy and the existence of her twin children. Fans on Japanese community forums were quick to notice the similarity between this real-life incident and AI’s story.

This is not the first time that Oshi no Ko has been linked to real-life events. Another character from the series, Akane, was depicted as being bullied and receiving online harassment. Many fans believed this storyline was inspired by the tragic story of Hana Kimura, who took her own life after being subjected to online bullying.

Idol Reveals Having Two Secret Children

Nagi Fujisaki, a 23-year-old member of the musical duo Saishu Mirai Shojo, made a surprising revelation during a live appearance on the TBS program “Sunday Japan” on August 20, 2023. She confessed that she is a single mother with two children, aged 3 and 1.

The announcement was met with astonishment in the studio, and Fujisaki expressed relief and joy at finally being able to share her secret.

The program featured a segment titled “New Sleep Norms,” and when asked about Fujisaki’s trouble in sleeping, she confessed that she is a single mother of two children. The host of the Sunday Japan program, Ohta Hikaru, jokingly said that this was not something to be said on this program.

Fujisaki responded that her children were at home with a sitter and expressed a relieved and cheerful expression, saying, “I finally got to say it.”

Fujisaki’s courageous revelation has sparked a wave of support from fans and fellow celebrities on her Instagram account. However, the fact that Fujiaskai had to hide this fact sparked discussions about the challenges faced by idols in the Japanese entertainment industry, where there is taboo to be in a romantic relationship, although the situation is getting better every year.

The connection between Fujisaki’s life and the plot of “Oshi no Ko” serves as a reminder of how art can imitate life and how fiction can sometimes mirror reality in unexpected ways.
