In the entertainment world, celebrities often show exaggerated versions of themselves to the public, concealing their true thoughts and struggles beneath elaborate lies. Fans buy into these fabrications, showering their idols with undying love and support, until something breaks the illusion. Sixteen-year-old rising star Ai Hoshino of pop idol group B Komachi has the world captivated; however, when she announces a hiatus due to health concerns, the news causes many to become worried.

As a huge fan of Ai, gynecologist Gorou Amemiya cheers her on from his countryside medical practice, wishing he could meet her in person one day. His wish comes true when Ai shows up at his hospital—not sick, but pregnant with twins! While the doctor promises Ai to safely deliver her children, he wonders if this encounter with the idol will forever change the nature of his relationship with her.

Mixed Feelings
Oshi no ko is definitely a mixed bag. Although it’s art, characters and cinematography launch it above many other anime, it has some major flaws that just can not be covered up by the beautiful animation.

Firstly, I loved the art style. Everything was so fresh and colourful, and some of the stylised shots were breathtaking. The dancing scenes were spectacular, especially for the last episode. The character designs were super unique. Also, the music is all addictive and catchy. On the art and music front, it’s a 10/10.

However, there is one severe issue with the anime that can not be ignored: the fragmentation. This ...

ENG/ESP Review on Oshi no Ko
This review contains minor spoilers.

It is impressive how an anime from this very year is already outdated in comparison to an anime that deals with similar themes, such as Perfect Blue, which ...
