Oshi no Ko chapter 126, titled Management, started with Miyako announcing a major reshuffle to the company. Firstly, she introduced Ichigo Saitou as a new part-timer, following which she announced several organizational structural changes, which included Ichigo being in charge of everyone while Miyako was set to be Aqua and Ruby's manager.

Ruby Hoshino seemed happy to have Ichigo back in the company. However, as revealed by Ichigo, he was tricked by Aqua. Apparently, it was Aqua who had called Ichigo into the bar that day. Moreover, he was the person who had earlier introduced him to the place, making it his go-to, which is why he wasn't suspecting it. This meant that Aqua had planned the meeting all along.

Ruby was happy when she learned about this, as she was led to believe that Aqua had done all of it for her. She compared Aqua's actions to Gorou Amamiya's, thinking that he hadn't changed since his previous life.

Following that, Oshi no Ko chapter 126 saw Ichigo and Miyako together looking at Ruby's work schedule. As Ruby was very popular, she was receiving a lot of offers. Since Miyako did not want to miss out on such opportunities, she kept accepting all of them. At that point, Ichigo advised her they didn't need to accept all the offers, just the best ones.

With that, Ichigo asked Miyako to get a bigger office so that they could present themselves as a big company. Miyako felt disappointed in herself, as she felt useless after the amount of changes Ichigo demanded. Ichigo immediately retorted, telling her that she had done a nice job, giving the company a good reputation in the industry.

However, Miyako believed that Ichigo was trying to flatter her. Hence, she asked him to do some house chores. Just right after, Ichigo asked Miyako to keep a close eye on Aqua, as he believed that he was broken inside.
