Mengo warned fans on his profile that new copies of Oshi no Ko will soon arrive in bookstores:
“Oshi no Ko’s manga is sold out, right? I haven’t confirmed it for sure, but it looks like we’ll have new copies in mid-May, I know it’s frustrating not being able to read what you want, but wait a little longer!”
