Whilst Oshi No Ko fans will be sad to see the series end its weekly simulcast on the 2023 Spring broadcast slate, it should only be a matter of time before a second season is confirmed to be in production.
Not only is there plenty of original source material from the manga series left to adapt, we are around one-quarter of the way through the entire story so far, but the anime is easily popular enough to merit another season going into production.
Not only is the series the second highest-rated anime of the 2023 Spring slate, only behind Demon Slayer, but the manga has also seen a dramatic increase in the number of sold copies since its launch.
In fact, Oshi No Ko is the ninth highest-selling manga of 2023 so far, according to a new report from Oricon:
- Blue Lock – 8,046,032 copies sold
- Chainsaw Man – 4,492,906 copies sold
- Slam Dunk – 4,199,966 copies sold
- Jujutsu Kaisen – 3,757,215 copies sold
- One Piece – 3,550,097 copies sold
- Spy x Family – 2,688,171 copies sold
- Tokyo Revengers – 2,622,078 copies sold
- My Hero Academia – 1,887,507 copies sold
- Oshi No Ko – 1,690,722 copies sold
- Kingdom – 1,569,434 copies sold
Coupling the success of the series with the availability of source material, a season 2 of Oshi No Ko is all-but guaranteed at this point.
