Oshi no Ko Anime Popularity
Oshi no Ko anime is based on the manga of the same name, written by Aka Akasaka. The manga series was popular enough to gather a significant following even before the anime.
Thanks to the amazing animation direction of Studio Doga Koba, the series’ popularity skyrocketed, even placing the anime at the top of MyAnimeList’s highest-rated anime for some time.
Partial credit for the series’ popularity also goes to YOASOBI, who performed the theme song for Oshi no Ko, which already has broken many international records.
Even though the series has received a massive positive reception from the masses, there was an incident regarding Akane’s story being too similar to a real-life actress whose life ended because of online harassment.
