Oh wow, do you guys remember Panda Mic? That very deliberately black and white junior idol quintet was like a little refresher of very poppy punk at a time when it seemed like idol was losing the uniquely well-suited-to-it style a little bit.
Well, they’re back, celebrating their anniversary with a new track available via OTOTOY:
Hello! Well, there’s so much going on, so lets get to something important first.
Necronomidol’s UK show is this coming Tuesday and I couldn’t be more excited! I just want to thank everyone again for helping me get to the show. Those who donated or even just shared my Gofundme, my store or my commission posts. You’re awesome and I love you all so much!
Now, on to the main point: [MANIAC REDACTED!]
Now, after that public service announcement, here’s the best of last week!
Today’s Friday Fun is very, very similar to last week’s #WhatLuiIsThinking. What can I say, these idols are literally handing over these opportunities to us! This time it’s a special request from everyone’s favourite raspy-voiced idol boss, Rei!
It’s only fair. She not only tweeted the above image yesterday, but she was also one of the girls who brought attention to #YuraSmile to the Japanese side of the fandom by tweeting her response. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find that tweet now, but she was amused. So it’s only fair that we meme her up too!

It’s clear that, following an international tour and then a whole bunch of stuff back home in Japan, the members of Yukueshirezutsurezure are down to take it a little bit easy ahead of their next storm to come. Yes, even Cococo, who wore her best whites, or perhaps wanted her rapidly whitening front half to appear as clothing, to complain about needing a nap after a little too much to eat:
I have a big-ass event to run for work today and wasn’t sure if I’d get much of a chance to really do much, you guys, so I figured instead that a little Indie Idol Wednesday double feature might be in order.
Remember merry merli? I sure as hell do; they were a surprisingly good time for a unit that just kind of bopped into existence without so much as an excuse me, and with slightly higher production values than we usually see (though not much more exposure, fwiw). Like immediately subsequently to that discovery, they generated another MV preview and even something of an updated look, and I’m not going to go so far out on a limb as to suggest that this “rocks” per se, but it feels kind of evil and has a sufficiently diabolical name (“Lorelei of the Meridian”! It’s practically Masonic!) that hell, have a listen: Continue reading →
