1. Oshi No Ko – IMDb Rating 8.4
Oshi no Ko is a huge name in the industry this year. A popular anime, it is the adaptation of the manga by Aka Akasaka, the author behind Kaguya-sama. The story seems light-hearted at first glance, but it delves deeper into an emotionally complex story that will surely entice the viewers. The series’ protagonist is an idol, Ai Hoshino, who harbors a deep secret within her. A secret such that even all the fame and money in the world might not save Ai from catastrophe.
