People will be able to learn more about the Oshi no Ko anime outside Japan, as the official Twitter account announced an English website is open. It’s a bit sparse at the moment. It mainly lists where to watch the anime in countries where it is being aired or simulcast. However, there are two brief statements from two of the show’s voice actors.
With the Rie Takahashi statement, she noted that she’s been inspired and “strengthened” by the series. She plays Ai Hoshino in it. Kent Ito, who plays Gorou Amemiya, noted he got the role “about a year ago” and noted how people outside Japan will see how different the entertainment industry is compared to what they know.
Oshi no Ko’s enjoyed quite a bit of success since its debut. For example, the opening theme song “Idol,” by Yoasobi, passed 23 million views on YouTubeat the beginning of April 2023. It’s since passed 41 million views since it was released about two weeks ago.
Oshi no Ko is streaming on HIDIVE. Yen Press handles the English localization of the manga. The show will appear on both Blu-ray and DVD in Japan. The anime’s first volume will release there on June 28, 2023.
