But still, Oshi no Ko is an idol... right? Just like you said, all those sh*ts about entertaining in the industry can consider in idol culture and it's still different in Paripi Koumei's case. I don't defend Koumei but I can see it can't be consider as an idol show, which seemingly I asked on my first comment.

In Oshi no Ko's case, I can estimated it as let's say, 50/50. 50% for the part that Ruby wants to be an idol and 50% in Aqua's case involving the acting. Hence in your statements and one of my statements earlier (Oshi no Ko is a combination of Love Live, Kageki Shoujo, and Skip Beat, with a edgy yet pretentious sh*ts that were ridonkeylous at some point), it's still an idol show/manga. You can see that in the initial premise of the story. And if you want me to give a different perspective on the manga that "it's more than just an idol show", it's decent. But nothing special, nothing more and nothing less.

50% is egregious considering the number 1 complaint is "bro why tf is Ruby irrelevant at all times". Like I said, no, it's not an idol series in the musical sense yet. They cut to it occasionally for a tenth of a chapter.
The rest of it is character drama and acting plots. Calling it an idol series, is actually just misguiding both Idol series fans, and non-idol series fans. I would never go "oh hey, you like Love Live? Try this" lmao. It's completely different and barely focuses on idols.
It just "starts that way" and even then focused way more on acting at the start. Literally sets itself up for the acting subplot.
Like, sheesh if your memory is that skewed please reread it lmao.
Its honestly 70% acting imo. It's an idol series, to about the same capacity as dress-up darling is about magical girls because Marin likes them and cosplayed one once.
And if you want to go there, Eiko in Paripi Koumei is a portrayal of a more western music Idol. Which still makes her an idol.

It's still an idol series. Like that one said that calling Vivy as an idol anime but it is an action at the same way. If they were misguided, then let them be because Oshi no Ko was introduced that way, and it's not the end of the world. If that's so, they should promoted it as an psychological mystery supernatural drama edgy sh*t in the first place, but it was not. The two authors actually said it in the first place that it is an idol and performance arts theme. The way the misconceptualizing the whole thing makes Oshi no Ko "more interesting" in a sense. Do you think that likes of Doki Doki Literature Club and Madoka Magica wouldn't be successful if they didn't introduced

It's still an idol series. Like that other one said Vivy is an idol but yet it was mainly an action show. If that's so, the authors should've promoted it as a psychological mystery edgy drama sh*t in the first place, which they didn't. They were misconceptualizing the whole thing that they advertised it as an idol and performing arts story to make the it "more surprising and interesting". I think that's the risk they took because those kinds of themes/story are hit or missed. And jeez, if they not like the concept, just let them be. It's not the end of the world. Shows like Osama Ranking, Fruits Basket, Evangelion, or others were like it were introduced that way, but there were something more to its parts. Let me ask you, do you think that the likes of Doki Doki Literature Club and Madoka Magica would be successful if they introduce its true nature? No. It's the same sh*t in Oshi no Ko.

And if you're saying that Eiko can be an idol, how come there's no idol tag in Paripi Koumei? So if I'm a famous singer all over the internet and I have a concert, so I can be an idol too?
