The Oshi no Ko anime has been a big hit, but it hasn’t been without its controversies. Outside of that, the series is about to take a non-controversial break, with the official website announcing that episode 8 will now air on June 7.
A special “Looking Back” retrospective will air in its place—including interviews with the voice cast members behind Aqua and Ruby—and will then make its way to the official YouTube channel on June 1.
HIDIVE previously announced that Oshi no Ko was its biggest premiere of all time.
Daisuke Hiramaki is directing the Oshi no Ko anime, with animation production by Doga Kobo. Manga Plus publishes the English version of Aka Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari’s manga digitally and describes it like so:
“In the world of showbiz, lies are weapons.” Goro works as an OB-GYN in the countryside, a life far removed from the entertainment industry. Meanwhile, his favorite idol, Ai Hoshino, has begun her climb to stardom. The two meet in the “worst possible way,” setting the gears of fate in motion! The amazing Aka Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari team up to depict the world of showbiz from a completely new perspective in this shocking series!
