It’s not an everyday occurrence to hear of a second season being confirmed while the first one is still airing. Yet, according to a trustworthy leaker on Weibo, the anime Oshi no Ko is set to enjoy a second run.
The popularity of the Oshi no Ko series has surged dramatically, largely due to its 90-minute inaugural episode. Given the anime’s rising popularity, it seemed inevitable that a sequel would soon be announced.
Weibo, a popular social media platform in China, is where the user appears to have leaked the rumour regarding the second season of Oshi no Ko.
Interestingly, the greenlighting of a second season appears to have broken a so-called “curse”. Studio Doga Koba, responsible for animating Oshi no Ko, has a notorious reputation for not producing sequels for its anime.
Some of Studio Doga Koba’s renowned anime include Idol, Shikumuri is not just a cutie, and My Senpai is annoying. Any anime created by this studio was widely believed to be unlikely to receive a sequel. Yet, if the rumors about Oshi no Ko’s second season are true, this infamous streak might finally be broken.
However, the reliability of this information is still up for debate, so it is crucial to approach it with a healthy dose of skepticism.
For those who haven’t yet watched, the Oshi no Ko anime series is available to stream on HIDIVE. The story focuses on the Entertainment industry and the life of Idols and how the Idols face different challenges throughout their career.
Oshi no Ko anime is based on the manga of the same name, written by Aka Akasaka and drawn by Mengo Yokoyari. The author is also known for Kaguya Sama Love Is War manga series. Aka Akasaka is currently working on a new manga series.
Hopefully, we will get the official confirmation for Oshi no Ko season 2 after the final episode of Oshi no Ko season 1. Oshi no Ko’s first season will have a total of 11 episodes.
