RECAP: Oshi no Ko Chapter 122 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 123

This was possibly the most cathartic chapter of the season in Oshi no Ko, and possibly for the whole series. There have been plenty of teases as to whether the two would discuss their past lives, and how they remain connected in their new bodies as family members now.

This was the chapter where Ruby let slip about her reincarnation, and everything became crystal clear to Aqua, who stepped in and revealed the truth, that he too was reincarnated. To Ruby’s shock, Aqua was her sensei and attending physician Gorou Amamiya, who was elated to see she held onto the Ai gacha keychain she gave him, found on his corpse.

Oshi no Ko Chapter 122 was sad but also a wonderful relief, to see these characters reconciled in a deeper emotional sense. Ruby’s complicated feelings for Gorou were always doomed, but in a way this also makes their new connection more tragic, as they’re now siblings.

Oshi no Ko Chapter 123 Leaks and Spoilers Hint at a Controversial Development

One of the downsides of a manga exploding in popularity is that when there’s a huge, potentially problematic moment coming up, people will plaster it all across social media. The latest offense, coming as a surprise from a creator like Aka Akasaka, is in the form of Ruby’s implied incestuous desire for Aqua, revealing that she’s now old enough to marry him. Leaks and spoilers for Oshi no Ko, as well as translations, began to surface like this:

Let’s back up for a moment with this. Even in the leaked images of the chapter, there’s no confirmation of a mutually-acknowledged desire. Ruby’s vulnerable in her current state and Aqua has handled himself well in these situations before, but it’s understandably sent fans into a spiral while they wait for the chapter.

Ruby was pulled back from the edge this time, and might finally turn away from her dark path to revenge. Surely this will be the emotional depth she needed to tap into for her role in the 15 Year Lie movie from Chapter 123 onward in Oshi no Ko.
