This is the same date that the second season will start airing in Japan. So you’ll be able to watch it right when it broadcasts for the originating country as well. Granted, we always knew that HIDIVE would be releasing the second season in English. It confirmed back in March 2024 that it would do so, along with the key visual of everyone preparing for the Tokyo Blade stage play.

Those with even a passing interest in Japanese media probably knew of Oshi no Ko, between its recognizable character designs and memorable opening song. “Idol” by Yoasobi was everywhere, breaking streaming records on Oricon and racking up millions of views no matter the language.

The story of Oshi no Ko follows Aqua and Ruby, the twin children of top idol Hoshino Ai. In reality, they are the reincarnations of people who’d been fans of Ai until their untimely deaths. After a mysterious culprit kills Ai, the two of them enter the entertainment industry in order to investigate.

Oshi no Ko is available for streaming via HIDIVE and season 2 will start airing from July 3, 2024.
