According to the text published on their official website, Oshi no Ko “broke records by becoming the number 1 release in the history of the streaming service“.

Oshi no Ko broke subscription records too: “The overwhelming fan response in its first seven days of release took OSHI NO KO to the top in total views and new subscribers (first views) – not just for the spring season of 2023, but also of all time”.

Another broken record was the “test subscriptions” in the service’s history. HIDIVE’s president said that they are very happy with the fan response regarding Oshi no Ko’s debut.

Basically, HIDIVE achieved absurd numbers with Oshi no Ko, and the success of the anime was more a matter of “word of mouth”, one person watched it, got emotional or had no reaction, told it to more people who also watched it and were surprised and so it went.

Oshi no Ko broke records on HIDIVE and also broke one on MyAnimeList, as it was even in front of Fullmetal Alchemist, which is always in the first position of the ranking.
