I’m writing this as the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion is downloading, because chances are you’re not going to be hearing from me for a while once I boot that fiesta up. Thankfully, there’s been no sudden disbandment announcements to ruin Splatoon launch day this time! Just your theories as to how the WACK battle of the year is going to go down.

Oh look, another Friday Fun based on a dream. My Fun queue has run out, okay?
The other night I dreamed that to cash in on Babymetal's graphic novel, a bunch of other idol units started releasing their own comics/graphic novels, so whenever I went to a comic book store they were just full of idol books and CDs.

Well, we finally got the previews for the Babymetal graphic novel. Looks decent:
Here's your 1st look at APOCRYPHA: THE LEGEND OF BABYMETAL from @gmbchomichuk @Z2comics & The Prophet of the Fox God.

Surprisingly, Babymetal aren’t the first idol unit to get their own official graphic novels/comics/manga/whatever you call that genre. Actually, I don’t know who exactly is the first, but you know I can refuse any opportunity to drop Hello! Project in here:
Is anyone really shocked that old-school Morning Musume got a manga? From what I hear though, it’s not that good.
But, you can make better idol manga, right? You can’t draw? Alright, never mind. But you can at least come up with ideas, right? Would your idol’s manga be a 4koma gag series, or would it be a gripping page-turner full of plot twists and shocking reveals? Would Melon Batake A Go Go be part of the Marvel canon? Its all up to you.
Oh, and don’t you dare think of bringing up any of those “adult” doujinshi, shame on you! And shame on me for bringing it up too!
Suggest idol publishing plots with #IdolComicAdaptations and, do you think I should revive #IdolDreams for a second round next week? I’ve been having a lot of them lately.
