The anime adaptation of the manga by Aka Akasaka arrived with everything, a beautiful animation and impeccable direction. Even the opening and ending are worthy of praise!
Analysis of the Ending of Oshi no Ko
Here we have Ruby sitting in her hospital room, she’s still stuck in her past and still wants to be an idol like Ai. Back then, she was just a fan of hers, having a lot of products in her room. But even after becoming his daughter, her thoughts haven’t changed. Only she wants to leave, because she has always been lonely.
Aqua wants revenge, he too is tied to his past, even more so than Ruby, you can see the strings that still bind him. Unlike Ruby, he has lived life freely previously and is not stuck in a room.
Still not able to leave the hospital, but managing to get out of the room, she goes to the place where Gotou and Ai first talked, on the roof. They are the two most important people in the world to her.
Aqua and Ruby want to reach for the stars, because that’s where Ai is. Ai is their star. A symbolism for your family name.
And at the end, we have Aqua sitting in front of a movie that replicates all the happy family moments we saw in the first episode, something he treasures to no end. And he’s willing to step into the darkness to get revenge on the person who took it from him.
As you can see, it’s a very strong ending and you can clearly see all the love involved in producing one of the most anticipated anime of the year.
