In a disheartening turn of events for fans of the popular anime series OSHI NO Ko, the release of the next episode has been delayed. Following the recent release of OSHI NO Ko episode 7, which premiered today, viewers were eagerly anticipating the arrival of OSHI NO Ko episode 8 scheduled for next Wednesday.
However, an announcement has been made that the release date for OSHI NO Ko episode 8 has been postponed to June 7th. Although the delay is relatively short, it has left fans feeling a sense of disappointment. The reason behind this unexpected change is the scheduling of a special program centered around the series, rather than a new episode.
The official website of OSHI NO Ko has confirmed that the program will provide a retrospective look at episodes 1 to 7 of the TV anime, featuring interviews with Takeo Otsuka, the voice actor for Aqua, and Yurie Ikoma, the voice actor for Ruby.
The creators believe that this program will offer viewers valuable insights to further enhance their appreciation of OSHI NO Ko. The eighth episode of the series will still air on Wednesday, June 7th.
Although it remains unclear whether this special program was planned from the outset or if it is a result of production issues, fans are urging the creators to take their time to ensure a high-quality output rather than rushing the process. They acknowledge the significant effort that has been invested in the anime thus far and believe that any delay is justifiable in order to maintain the overall quality of the series.
Furthermore, it is worth noting that other anime series, such as “Hell’s Paradise Episode 9” and another undisclosed project, are also experiencing delays, indicating that the challenges faced by the production industry are not unique to OSHI NO Ko.
Currently ongoing, the OSHI NO Ko anime is set to have a total of 11 episodes in its first season. With the release of episode 7 today, viewers can look forward to only four more episodes before the conclusion of the season. Speculation about the possibility of a second season for the anime is already circulating within the fan community.
The OSHI NO Ko anime is an adaptation of a Japanese manga series written by Aka Akasaka and illustrated by Mengo Yokoyari. Serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump since April 2020, the manga has been collected in 11 tankōbon volumes as of March 2023.
The anime television series, produced by Doga Kobo, premiered in April 2023, captivating audiences with its compelling storyline and vibrant visuals.
While fans may be disheartened by the delay in the release of episode 8, the upcoming special program promises to provide an insightful retrospective, further enriching the OSHI NO Ko experience.
As fans eagerly anticipate the continuation of the series, they remain hopeful that the production team will deliver a captivating and fulfilling conclusion to the first season.
