In the latest Interlude chapter, we see MEM get some focus on her backstory!

RECAP: Oshi no Ko Interlude Chapter 1 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 2

Oshi no Ko Interlude is indeed a 6-pager as the leaks suggested, a brief side-story focusing on MEM-Cho’s past in this case. While we saw some of her stories told earlier in the manga and again in the anime, this tiny story tells more about her encounters and anxieties about committing to being an idol.

This includes socializing and feeding from a mixer where she’s afraid one kiss can ruin her prospects of becoming an idol. To be fair, Ai was murdered for essentially having a personal life, children born out of wedlock and not committing wholly to her fans, in the eyes of her killer. Whether we see more MEM in the next chapter, or perhaps another underappreciated supporting character, remains to be seen as we wait on Part 2! We’ll keep you posted on our findings!
