As spring 2023 arrived, one anime stood out as a surprising success in the lineup – the adaptation of the idol manga “Oshi no Ko” created by Aka Akasaka. Its popularity has even surpassed that of the highly anticipated third season of Demon Slayer. However, one question remains – how many episodes can viewers expect from Oshi no Ko?
How many episodes will Oshi no Ko have?
The success of the Oshi no Ko manga by Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari has been translated into a hit anime produced by the studio Doga Kobo. The anime’s popularity has surpassed even that of the highly anticipated third season of Demon Slayer.
Despite its success, the anime will have a limited run, leaving fans eager to savor each episode. AnimeTV has confirmed that the first season will only have 11 episodes, with the show starting on April 12 and four episodes already available.
Fans will have six more weeks to enjoy the series, which will conclude on June 21, unless unforeseen events occur.
Given the pacing of the Oshi no Ko anime, which has adapted 2.5 chapters per episode, it is estimated that the first season will conclude around chapter 40 of the manga. This point marks a significant milestone in the story and the end of an important narrative arc.
It’s essential to pay attention to how the anime adapts the manga, as this influences the narrative’s pacing. As such, fans are advised to make the most of each episode of this short season of one of the most popular anime of spring 2023.
