Although this setback may disappoint fans, a silver lining exists amidst the pause. While the main storyline takes a temporary hiatus, illustrator Mengo Yokoyari present the first chapter for “Oshi No Ko -Interlude-,” a collection of four short side story chapters, on August 10, 2023.

The following is the release schedule for the “Oshi No Ko -Interlude-“:

  • Interlude Ch 1: August 10, 2023
  • Break (Obon holiday)
  • Interlude Ch 2: August 24, 2023
  • Interlude Ch 3: August 31, 2023
  • Interlude Ch 4: September 7, 2023

Aka Akasaka has issued a statement regarding the temporary halt of Oshi No Ko, offering apologies to fans and expressing heartfelt gratitude to both Mengo Yokoyari and 5mm-sensei for their supportive understanding in facilitating the hiatus.

Twitter user @sneakyoshi provided the translation for author Asakasa Aka’s message.

I fell sick a while ago and after discussing it with the people involved, I took a month-long break.

I apologise for taking a month off.

As of writing this message, I am back to full health and ready to deliver to the best of my ability.

I will continue to do my best going forward, and I hope you’ll look forward to the series’ return after the break.

I would also like to thank Mengo-sensei and 5mm-sensei for kindly agreeing to let our works go on hiatus.

Asakasa Aka (Author of Oshi no Ko)

The fans of the series, even though slightly disappointed, prayed for the health of author and wished him a quick recovery.

With the release of Oshi no Ko -interlude-, a brand new illustration of Arima Kana was also released for the Shonen Jump Plus Web Service.
