Oshi No Ko, the popular manga series by Akasaka Aka, has recently sparked controversy among fans with the release of chapter 123. Following the successful first season of the anime adaptation, fans were eagerly awaiting the continuation of the story in the manga. However, leaks of the chapter left many fans upset and considering dropping the series altogether.
Warning: Major spoilers ahead for Oshi No Ko.
In chapter 122, readers witnessed an emotional reunion between Doctor Gorou and Sarina, where the characters discover their connection from a previous life. This heartwarming moment quickly takes a dark turn in the final pages of chapter 123. Ruby, Sarina’s sister, approaches Doctor Gorou and reminds him of his previous statement about considering marriage once she turns 16.
The problem that has caused such an uproar among fans is the implication of a possible romantic relationship between Ruby and Doctor Gorou. As siblings, the idea of such a relationship is met with understandable outrage and disgust. The leaks on Twitter fueled the backlash, and when the official chapter was released, the controversial panel remained unchanged.
It is important to note that as of now, nothing has actually happened between Ruby and Doctor Gorou besides the suggestive statement in the final panel. However, the implications alone have been enough to shake fans and make them question the direction the series is taking.
For those interested in reading the controversial chapter themselves, chapter 123, along with all previous chapters of Oshi No Ko, can be found on the Mangaplus app for free. It is always encouraged to support the creators by consuming official releases.
The reaction from fans has been varied, with some expressing their disappointment and frustration, while others speculate that the mangaka, Akasaka Aka, may be setting up a fake-out or misdirection. The true intentions behind the chapter remain uncertain, and readers will have to wait for the next installment to see how Aqua, another key character, responds to Ruby’s statement.
Oshi No Ko will be going on a one-week hiatus, prolonging the anticipation for the continuation of the story. The controversy surrounding chapter 123 has certainly ignited passionate discussions within the fanbase, leaving fans eager to see how the series will address the situation and whether it can recover from this divisive plot development.
As the story continues to unfold, fans are left to ponder the implications and question their commitment to the series. Whether this turn of events will have a lasting impact on Oshi No Ko’s popularity remains to be seen.
