Oshi No Ko Plot
Ai Hoshino, a sixteen-year-old idol, is loved and appreciated for her talent and beauty. She epitomizes the image of a virginal young woman. However, not everything that shines is gold.
Gorou Amemiya, a gynecologist in the countryside, is an avid supporter of Ai. Because of this, he is completely taken aback when the pregnant idol unexpectedly visits his hospital.
Gorou ensures her that a healthy baby is on the way. He meets a mysterious stranger and believes that this is the end of his life, but little does he realize that this is not the case.
Gorou wakes up in the arms of his idol, Ai, to discover he has been reincarnated as her newborn son, Aquamarine Hoshino.
Gorou’s life is flipped upside down as he discovers that brilliance is not guaranteed to lead to success in the entertainment industry. Will he be able to safeguard Ai’s cherished grin with the aid of a peculiar and unanticipated ally?

Apart from the fact that Doga Kobo has been chosen to animate Oshi no Ko, not much is known about the impending anime adaptation at this time, but lovers of the genre should keep a lookout for any updates the studio may make regarding the production or release timeline. You may read Aka Akasaka’s latest seinen story, Oshi no Ko, in the meanwhile by picking up the manga adaptation.
Manga Plus, a free app with a large library of titles featuring exclusives like “Don’t Blush, Sekime-san!” and “Hokkaido Gals Are Super Adorable!,” is the only place in the West where you can read manga. In an effort to keep up with the publication schedule in Japan, Manga Plus publishes four newly translated chapters every Wednesday at 10:00 AM Central Standard Time.
At the time of this writing, 32 chapters of Oshi no Ko are available to read on Manga Plus, with the first six and most current six chapters always available to read and the remainder available to read twice before becoming locked.
Similar to how Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible, another Manga Plus work, was licensed for a Western manga release, Oshi no Ko could see a similar fate in the near future. As soon as information about where to buy the Oshi no Ko manga becomes available, it will be included here.
