This anime ultimately explores the idol industry, more so the darker side of being an idol, and goes into some depth about the business, what goes into making or breaking an idol, and a lot more.
Here’s a list of anime shows like Oshi No Ko worth watching.
1. New Game!
In the anime New Game, female characters all work within the gaming industry and this is the highlight of the anime’s episodes, comedy, occasional sadness, and stories.
Aoba Suzukaze has graduated and is now getting to work at Eagle Jump, a known company for its popular video games.

The main character is shot back in time where he has a chance to change the outcome of a tragic event and save the people he desperately wants to protect.
He becomes a kid again, like with Oshi No Ko, and the plot follows his journey to correcting the mistakes of the past he regrets.
The one anime show that’s actually about the industry, what goes down within the anime industry, how shows are developed, cut, produced, and a whole lot more.
It’s an anime all fans should watch to get some understanding.
The main characters are part of an anime studio, working on anime projects, where stress is high, their schedule is tight, and things can get crapped as easily as they can get started.
You could say this anime is portrayed in a slightly more “fun” sense but with a lot of realism.
5. Skip Beat
Kyoko Mogami is the orange-haired (really has black hair) female character who we see in a relationship. The man she’s in a relationship with is sleeping on her couch, basically, using her and biding his time.
Kyoko cooks, cleans, and is a lapdog, and her boyfriend dumps her the moment he gets a chance at showbiz.
Kyoko drastically changes from this point forward and becomes more assertive and confident in herself. She even goes into showbiz by barging through the front door and has a talent for it even she wasn’t aware of.
It’s all driven by revenge, but it becomes more than this as she begins to develop and progress.
6. Perfect Blue
Perfect Blue might be the closest series to Oshi No Ko for how it’s portrayed, and what goes on in both anime series. It’s an anime that focuses on the female MC who retires from being an idol.
The moment she retires is when things start to go downhill for the wrong reasons.
She’s now being stalked by insane, deranged fans who don’t know when to quit and don’t know how to accept the decisions of another human being they happen to admire to a fault and idolize (no pun intended).
The experience and how it’s portrayed is deeply
7. Love Live School Idol Project
Love Live School Idol Project is an anime series where idols are portrayed in the most positive light possible. So it’s not like Oshi No Ko in that sense, but in the idol sense in general.
Umi Sonoda is the introvert of the show who keeps people in check but does have a shy side. Honoka Kousaka is the girl who brings everyone together and is the reason for the formation of “U’s”, a
All together there are 9 characters and members of the U’s idol group, and many of the characters are surprisingly memorable.
8. Mushoku Tensei
Mushoku Tensei is an Isekai at the heart of it. And even though it’s not the main feature of Oshi No Ko, that anime does have
In this anime, Rudeus is the MC who’s now living as a kid, very similar to Oshi No Ko. Except he’s all the way in a past timeline where things are more historic and not as technologically driven.
Rudeus also has a disgusting past he’s deeply ashamed of, and this anime follows his journey to “redemption” in a sense, while also getting stronger and more proficient with magic, his abilities, and life itself.
9. Happy Sugar Life
Happy Sugar Life is an anime series about two characters: Satou Matsuzaka, the pink-haired female protagonist. And Shio Kobe, the black-haired little girl who’s at least 6-7 years old.
Satou has always been attractive to other guys and
Satou develops a strange, almost disgusting love for Shio where the two even “pretend” to get married and kiss at the end of it.
While this horror series is different in nature, there are crossover concepts and ideas that connect both anime together.
