Sixteen-year-old Ai Hoshino is a talented and beautiful idol who is adored by her fans. She is the personification of a pure, young maiden. But all that glitters is not gold. Gorou Amemiya is a countryside gynecologist and a big fan of Ai. So when the pregnant idol shows up at his hospital, he is beyond bewildered. Gorou promises her a safe delivery. Little does he know, an encounter with a mysterious figure would result in his untimely death—or so he thought. Opening his eyes in the lap of his beloved idol, Gorou finds that he has been reborn as Aquamarine Hoshino—Ai's newborn son! With his world turned upside down, Gorou soon learns that the world of showbiz is paved with thorns, where talent does not always beget success. Will he manage to protect Ai's smile that he loves so much with the help of an eccentric and unexpected ally?

Also, this is another show that got hidive-ed so the encode is actually from Netflix web-dl which somehow happens to be the best video at the moment. In terms of subtitles though, hidive is clearly better, so we combined the best of both before encoding. It even has two fansub groups working on it!
Oh yeah, the first “episode” is 90 minutes long which is why the file size is so big.

Idk what I was expecting, but it wasn’t that. First episode 10/10
A deep dive into the struggles of the harsh reality people in the cutthroat entertainment industry live.
I like an idol show now, apparantly. Sign of the times, isn’t it?
Heartfelt and deep struggle into the idol industry the lies in it and the struggle to succeed with excellent characters. Simply Must Watch.
They went to the To Your Eternity school of writing a first episode, huh?
Pretty interesting plot
Looking forward for their next episode
