Oshi no Ko Episode 6 recently finished airing, and here’s everything you need to know when episode 7 is released. Episode 6 is the series’ darkest episode ever since it premiered, and with the level of drama it creates, it further fuels expectations for next week’s episode.

What Happened In Oshi No Ko Episode 6?
Instead of focusing on Aqua or Ruby, Oshi no Ko episode 6, “Egosurfing,” shifts the focus to one of the newer characters, Akane Kurokawa. Akane has struggled with a lack of screen time on the reality dating show, and her unsuccessful attempt to attract more attention has resulted in her accidentally bumping into Yuki Sumi. It was a small incident where Yuki wasn’t even upset, but fans hated her for it and started bullying her online, even telling her to kill herself. Things got so bad that Akane actually tried to take her own life but luckily, unexpected intervention from Aqua saved her in time.
Oshi No Ko Episode 7 Akane’s Story Can’t Be Disturbed
Oshi no Ko has never been as serious as it is now, and that means episode 7 can’t drop the ball with Akane’s story. Akane’s attempted suicide and the online bullying that caused it are both taken completely seriously without any weight from the story or the characters, so it’s dealt with in the episode, however. 7 need to follow the same idea. Given the severity of a problem, letting Akane immediately feel better, or even worse, as a joke, would be awfully bad, so hopefully the movie understands this and continued Akane’s story with proper care.
The need to treat Akane’s story with care is particularly important because of its connection to the real-life death of Hana Kimura. Kimura was a young professional wrestler who participated in the Japanese reality TV show Terrace House, and after being bullied online for a minor incident on the show, Kimura committed suicide. This was a major incident in Japan, and since the manga chapters corresponding to volume 6 were released not long after, Akane’s story having too many similarities with Kimura’s story could be a mistake. idea. With that kind of inspiration, it’s even more important Oshi no Ko handle Akane’s story as respectfully and maturely as possible.
