Oshi no Ko follows Ai Hoshino’s journey as a celebrated idol, admired by her numerous fans. Upon visiting Gorou, a rural gynecologist, he eagerly offers his assistance to her. However, a mysterious accident leads him to be born to his favorite idol.

This marks the beginning of Gorou’s journey, as he comes to understand the harsh realities of the entertainment industry. Hopefully, we’ll soon get a release of this show too.

The trailer starts with the past lives of the twins. So, it’s likely that the first episode of the anime will show how they crossed paths in their previous lives.
