When last we left #AdoptAnIdol, our young friends in Poroporo Baroque were just getting their feet wet, having a small performance despite not yet having an official debut. In fact, they’re still assembling. And because there wasn’t much to use, I decided to call a hiatus to our pilot and reboot after some consideration.
I might be wrong, but it seems to me that we might have some decent candidates to take up. The original intent was to adopt somebody who was basically brand new, but such idols would probably be difficult to keep up with because it can takes months between groups debuting new songs, let alone official recordings and videos and stuff.
So, instead, what about groups that have been around for a little while and haven’t really caught on, or are kind of new but relatively prolific, or are sort of destined for perpetual underground status in Japan but could be turned into a thing abroad thanks to the magic of technology, a la Mr. Big in reverse 25 years later?
Like, I think in just the last few weeks, between Yandoll and Splash! and Cure and Under Beasty and BDS and Koiwaka and so on, we have some under-the-radar idols who are cool and could be fun to try to build up. Or maybe I’m drunk. IT’S POSSIBLE.
I’m just tossing this out to everybody. This poll is basically an internal thing, and I’m allowing multiple entries, including write-ins. State your case for supporting whoever you support in the comments; if you do write somebody in, please likewise further that nomination in the comments. Say who, why and/or why not. I’m very interested in the pros and cons. I can’t even say that there’s a good arbitrary limit to put on someone’s existing popularity (and you know that I’d do anything for Yukuetsurezure). AND that gives us something to argue about.
Also note: There’s a “this is stupid, Maniac” option. I JUST TRY TO HAVE FUN FOR ALL OF US OKAY.
