More exposure and success for the Oshi No Ko anime

Aqua and Ruby, two of the main characters of the hit anime series Oshi No Ko, are going to be on the cover of the next Spur magazine issue. This is a magazine from Japan that is centered around fashion, dressing advice, and wardrobe ideas. In recent times, it has become one of the most prominent brands in the country.

What makes it so interesting is that this is the second anime series to appear on its cover, with Hirohiko Araki’s celebrated JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series being the first one. That series made its debut on the cover of Spur magazine back in early 2022, with the sixth JoJo, Jolyne Cujoh, being the one chosen.

Araki is a manga author who has been a notorious fashion enthusiast over the years and a lot of his character designs are inspired by some of the brands that he likes the most.

Araki did some of his best work in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, which made him stand out among his competitors.

It has also been shown over the years that several of the iconic “JoJo poses” have been inspired by fashion, with some characters directly emulating the poses of some photo shoots. The series has also done collaborations with Gucci, highlighting the connection with the fashion industry.

The appeal of Oshi No Ko

Oshi No Ko tells the story of a gynecologist who has worked for a famous Japanese idol, but they were eventually murdered by the latter’s stalker.

However, the gynecologist revives as one of the singer’s children while retaining his memories and now wants to find out the truth about who his father is and the identity of the person that committed the murders.

The series has been a worldwide success, with the opening song even charting in the American market. The series has seen success because of the great plot and strong animation.
