Oshi No Ko Plot
Gorou Amemiya who is a doctor is approached by Ai Hoshino, a Japanese idol to act as her gynecologist so that she could deliver her children without the knowledge of the plot. The plot seems to be scandalous from the very beginning and draws the viewer in with intrigue. However, as if this scandal was not enough, Gorou is murdered before the day of Ai’s delivery by one of Ai’s obsessive fans who somehow found out about her pregnancy.
In a strange turn of events, Gorou is reincarnated as Aquamarine “Aqua” Hoshino, one of the twins Ai gives birth to along with Ruby Hoshino who turns out to be another reincarnation of one of Gorou’s patients who was also a fan of Ai. Both of the twins have memories of their previous life and they are more than happy to have Ai, their idol as their mother.
The story might seem to be going in the direction of a happy slice-of-life anime but things take a strange turn when four years later Ai is murdered by the same obsessive fan who murdered Gorou. The first episode ends with this shocking incident and it has left fans in a state of bewilderment. This has led to many people tuning in and watching the anime, while most of the viewers are waiting for the upcoming episodes.
