Oshi No Ko is an anime that seemingly came from nowhere before its popularity skyrocketed almost overnight. One look at the promotional images for Oshi No Ko: Season 1 , and you might think the show is a cute idol series. Maybe something like Love Live or K-On! where you get to watch a group of girls form a group and perform. You’d be deeply surprised to learn that the show can get incredibly dark as it discusses real issues within Japan’s idol culture.
Oshi No Ko features some pretty deep themes and dark moments, but it also has just the right amount of wackiness that somehow makes the show work perfectly. Just keep the former in mind in case you were expecting a purely wholesome, happy-go-lucky show about cute entertainers. Follow this Oshi No Ko: Season 1 episode guide to be up-to-date on when each episode is coming out. This guide will also inform you of which streaming services you can watch the show from.

Oshi No Ko Release Times (Per Timezone)
Oshi No Ko episodes are scheduled to come out at 11 PM Japanese Standard Time (JST). You might notice, however, that the JST doesn’t match up with the other times on this list. It takes about an hour for anime to reach international simulcasting services, which explains the time difference.
JST – 11:00 PM (Wedneday) ACDT – 12:00 AM (Thursday) PT – 8:00 AM (Wednesday) CT – 10:00 AM (Wednesday) ET – 11:00 AM ((Wednesday) GMT – 3:00 PM (Wednesday) BST – 4:00 PM (Wednesday) IST – 8:30 PM (Wednesday)
If you’re from a country with a different timezone, you can convert any of these times, except JST, into your timezone. If the new Oshi No Ko episode doesn’t appear for you at exactly these times, try to refresh the page you’re on as it’s usually a clerical error.
Where To Watch Oshi No Ko
Despite its extreme popularity, finding the right streaming service to watch Oshi No Ko episodes is a little tricky at the moment. The service you pick will have to depend on where you’re staying.
If you’re in the US or anywhere else in North America, your best option is HIDIVE. It’s currently the only legal streaming service allowed to show Oshi No Ko in these areas. HIDIVE is available in other regions as well.
Asian viewers have several options. You can try the Ani-One Asia YouTube channel, Bilibili, iQIYI, or Netflix, which has the show available in certain countries, including India, Singapore, and the Philippines. South Koreans can also use Aniplus TV, a service exclusive to that country.
Anime Digital Network (ADN), a streaming service based in France, is also streaming Oshi No Ko. Aside from France, ADN is also available in Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Andorra, and Monaco.
If you’re in a country that doesn’t have any of these options, you can bypass the region blocking in any of these services by using a VPN.
