Rumors circulating online suggest that Aka Akasaka‘s Oshi no Ko manga will be getting an anime adaptation soon. The rumors are based on a domain name under the name of the series -OSHINOKO.JP- that was registered on Feb 24, 2022.
No official announcement has been made for the same.
The domain registration could also point to a live action series or some other project related to the franchise.
Fans, on the other hand, have begun speculating the studio which will be in charge of animating the series, with Madhouse and A-1 Pictures leading the race. Many are siding with A-1 in this case, as they are currently handling the animation for Akasaka’s other series Kaguya Sama.
Oshi no Ko is a manga series written by Kaguya Sama: Love is War creator Aka Akasaka and illustrated by Mengo Yokoyari, who is author of Kuzu no Honkai. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump since April 2020, with its chapters collected in seven tankōbon volumes as of February 2022.
MAL describes the plot of the manga as follows;
Sixteen-year-old Ai Hoshino is a talented and beautiful idol who is adored by her fans. She is the personification of a pure, young maiden. But all that glitters is not gold.
Gorou Honda is a countryside gynecologist and a big fan of Ai. So when the pregnant idol shows up at his hospital, he is beyond bewildered. Gorou promises her a safe delivery. Little does he know, an encounter with a mysterious figure would result in his untimely death—or so he thought.
Opening his eyes in the lap of his beloved idol, Gorou finds that he has been reborn as Aquamarine Hoshino—Ai’s newborn son! With his world turned upside down, Gorou soon learns that the world of showbiz is paved with thorns, where talent does not always beget success. Will he manage to protect Ai’s smile that he loves so much with the help of an eccentric and unexpected ally?
