Currently on its thirteenth volume, Oshi No Ko, is a well-established supernatural mystery manga. Hailed as one of the finest Japanese mystery mangas and animes, Oshi No Ko is notorious for the drama stuffed in the manga and outside it. The manga and the anime have been surrounded by controversy before and are alleged of downplaying cyberbullying victims. However, the distributing service, Sentai Filmworks, issued an apology to douse the fire. But now, Oshi No Ko has once again found itself submerged in a heated controversy. The author, Aka Akasaka, indulged in an online argument, which has supposedly drained him.
Due to this, Akasaka announced a month-long hiatus, delaying Chapter 126 of the manga. But instead, he has promised an interlude in the form of Chapter 125.5. Now, fans are wondering whether this interlude chapter will be impacted by Akasaka’s hiatus. If you are one of those fans, wait no more. Dive in to catch the latest scoop on Oshi No Ko Chapter 125.5!
Oshi No Ko Chapter 125.5 Release Date
Also entitled “My Favourite Idol” and “Their Idol’s Children”, Oshi No Ko manga was first released amid the onslaught of the pandemic in April 2020. Illustrated by Mengo Yokoyari and penned by Aka Akasaki, the mystery manga caused an uproar among the fanbase. It was then licensed by Weekly Young Jump and Yen Press. Three years later, in 2023, Daisuke Hiramaki incorporated Akasaki’s manga into an anime which premiered on April 12, 2023. A sequel is currently under production and will soon hit our screens.
In its three-year runtime, Oshi No Ko has managed to compete with the likes of well-established fantasy animes and mangas. One factor contributing to the immense success of the manga is Akasaki’s dedication to releasing a weekly chapter without any delays. But now, after the argument he caught himself in, the manga is witnessing the whiplash. Though Aka is no longer on a hiatus, the manga’s schedule has been disrupted.
Akasaki has announced four interlude chapters that would release weekly to compensate his readers. The second instalment in this drama-packed interlude box, Oshi No Ko Chapter 125.5 is scheduled to release on August 24, 2023. It will be available in both, Japanese and English languages on Manga Plus and Young Jump.
