Inspired by the Aka Akasaka manga of the same name, Oshi No Ko follows the revenge journey of the famous idol’s son, Aqua Hoshino. An obstetrician-gynecologist, Gorou Amamiya, was tasked to help his favorite female idol, Ai Hoshino, deliver her baby. Instead, he was killed by a crazy fan and later reincarnated as Ai’s child with his previous life’s memory. He later figured out that his twin sister was his patient who died the same day. While things seemed dramatic, Aqua deduced that the murderer had kidnapped Ai’s partner, who had also killed his mom.
