Subtitled Oshi no Ko Trailer Has 2nd Season Premiere Date, Opening Song Preview

Many Oshi no Ko fans have been waiting feverishly for season two, and thanks to a trailer that just dropped, we now know that the new season begins on July 3! The subtitled trailer additionally unveils two new members of the cast, and lets us listen to the new opening theme song, which is titled “Fatale” and performed by GEMN.

The first season’s opening theme song has broken all sorts of records, so let’s see how the second season’s opening does.

According to the trailer, Ayane Sakura plays Abiko Samejima, and Daisuke Ono plays GOA.

HIDIVE, which is streaming the first season both subbed and dubbed, will also be offering the second season.

Fans in Japan have the option of going to the Marunouchi Piccadilly theater on June 30 to watch the season’s first episode in an advance screening. On top of that, the cast will be at the event.

There’s also a preview screening taking place in America. Specifically, it will be at Anime Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center on July 6. That means the first episode will have already dropped, but Anime Expo will play the second episode as well (along with the very first episode of the whole show). The whole cast won’t be there, but Ruby’s VA Yurie Igoma will take part in the event, as will producer Shimpei Yamashita.

Yen Press publishes the original manga by Aka Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari and gave this description for its plot:

Gorou is a gynecologist and idol fan who’s in shock after his favorite star, Ai, announces an impromptu hiatus. Little does Gorou realize that he’s about to forge a bond with her that defies all common sense! Lies are an idol’s greatest weapon in this outrageous manga from Aka Akasaka (Kaguya-sama: Love is War) and Mengo Yokoyari (Scum’s Wish).
