Doga Kobo, which is the studio behind Oshi no Ko, also worked on the music video for Yoasobi. Fans of the show might recognize the style because of this. “Idol” is a collaboration between Yoasobi and several other musical creators, such as Konnie Aoki (who wrote the English lyrics for the background chorus) and Real Akiba Boyz (who provided the background shouts).

While Yoasobi’s “Idol” serves as the opening for Oshi no Ko, the ending is Queen Bee’s “Mephisto.” Aka Akasaka, who previously wrote Kaguya-sama: Love is War, is the writer for Oshi no Ko. Mengo Yokoyari, who was the mangaka for Scum’s Wish, is in charge of the illustrations. Oshi no Ko is a drama and supernatural story that deals with idols, murder, and reincarnation.

You can listen to Yoasobi’s “Idol” via the band’s YouTube channel. Oshi no Ko is available on HIDIVE.
