A Friday Fun Full of Talent but Also Egos

Twitter are still being utter turnips, so here’s the link to last week’s hashtag and some highlights:

A Friday Fun from the Iconic to the Poorly Drawn

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.

[Is twitter working yet?] No, Twitter has banned embedded search widgets like a bunch of jerks

Oh look, another Friday Fun based on a dream. My Fun queue has run out, okay?

Well, we finally got the previews for the Babymetal graphic novel. Looks decent:

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: Continue reading

Adventures in Pour Lui’s Youtube Dungeon #7

Previously on Pour Lui’s Youtube Dungeon:

Pour Lui joins BILLIE IDLE … or did BILLIE IDLE join Pour Lui?

Episode 34: Makeover Montage

A new era of BILLIE IDLE is upon us, and that means new costumes! But, being separated from WACK (while still having to put up with them) means that BILLIE IDLE has roughly the budget of a preteen garage band owned by Dingo Pictures. BILLIE IDLE have been stuck in green screen/cheap animation hell for three years! But thanks to the Japanese equivalent of B&M Bargains (probably), and the token “aesthetic” captives of the dungeon, Tenten and Kosho, maybe they can create something dynamic and beautiful for a new era. The Momose sisters will love their new costumes!

Episode 35: House Of Cards

The Momose sisters didn’t love their new costumes. Not even seconds after their reveal, Momo and Akira gagged, swore, set the costumes on fire and locked everyone but Megumi (Momo had already agreed to dye her hair) in the dungeon until it was time for dance practice! “Puu, for fuck’s sake, why did you give them a spare key?” Tentenko growled through the palm that was planted against her face. “Well, now that we’re all united as one group, I thought it would only be fair that I gave everyone else in BILLIE IDLE a spare key to my dungeon as a symbol of trust and unity,” Pour Lui explained. “Then where the hell is my key!?” Non piped up. “I didn’t get one either!” Uika fumed.

“Um… um… card games!” Pour Lui stuttered, as she shifted through the card pile.

Episode 36: Battle Idol Society

Nozomi checked her watch. “Still three hours until dance practice” she sighed.

“All the more time to play another card game!” the Pourverlord chucked.

“Puu, please, I’m sick to death of these bloody card games! We’ve been playing nothing but card games for seven hours!” Uika groaned, exasperated.

“Oh!” Tenko jumped, scrambling to pick up the leftovers from the ill-fated costume design foray. “I know! I know! Who’s up for some arts and crafts?”

“Yaaay” the others unenthusiastically droned in unison.

Then Netflix saw this and decided to revive Robot Wars for another season.

Episode 37: Makeover Montage Part 2

Oh, finally, a makeup tutorial, I was wondering how long until PuuTube jumped into that genre.

Episode 38: Makeover Montage Part 3

Did you know Saki likes to cosplay? You do now.

Episode 39: Makeover Montage Part 4: The Paddening

The Zozo suit is back! Or, more specifically, the Pourverlord got a new one. All in the name of giving Uipon the ultimate hentai waifu body! Like she’s not horny on main enough already.

How much more cursed can BYS get before we enter Elsagate territory?
What next for the Zozo suit?
Will Uika finally get laid?

Puu’s Youtube Rival Of The Week

Who wants to watch Big Angel eat stuff?

Kerrie Interviews Idols (Again): NECRONOMIDOL

Ah, yes, arguably, the main event. It’s weird, actually. This is the second time I have interviewed Necroma (and the third time Homicidols has interviewed them overall), but I was still the most nervous about this particular interview.

I can say without a doubt that NECRONOMIDOL are my favourite unit nowadays. And Sari is not just the official Homicidols oshi of 2017-2018 (well), she also shares the joint podium with GANG PARADE’s Coco Partin Coco as my personal kamioshi. I was insanely excited, but terrified, to see them again.

Well, I’m sure enough people saw my Twitter fangirling to know that it went okay. They were all lovely to see again, as always. Rei even pulled out a chair for me to sit on as we started the interview! As it was Hina’s birthday in a couple of days, I gave her a gift bag of chocolate and a Hedwig plushie, and she was happy, and then I was happy! There’s a lot really that I could babble on about. There’s not much to say about their actual performance that hasn’t already been said before; they were absolutely captivating, as always. I think Sari’s facial spider may have been powering my ability to take photos, as once I noticed that it had fallen from her face, my camera ran out of space and my phone ran out of battery. Spooky!

We Friday Fun with Rivals in a Fight to the Death

This week has left me a little pooped, but I still have the energy for a Friday Fun!  Mainly because they don’t take that long to make.

Twitter has killed our ability to embed hashtag searches; go look at #HowBurstGirlGotArrested here

One week is a long enough gap for another good old-fashioned WACK Fun, right? Yeah, maybe not. Even my own cat, as I started typing this, batted at my hand in a manner that says “stop, human”. But whatever, because it looks like we may just get an idol reunion even bloodier than this week’s Saki/Sari smashdown:

Terashima Yufu and BiS at Tokyo Idol Festival? Heh, that’s a pretty funny coincidence. I wonder if Yuffy will finally acknowledge her past now that Pour Lui is out of the picture?

Oh.

Oh no.

Okay, TIF is a HUGE event, so it was bound to happen eventually, but it still brought me both chuckles and fear of what’s to come. The Pour Lui/Yuffie feud is historic, to the point where Puu still mocks Yuffie, and Yuffie won’t even acknowledge ever being a member of BiS. And now, a possible (backstage) reunion might be upon us with the appearance of the mascot-loving angel and a BILLIE IDLE that has been recently armed with a YouTube-loving hellspawn. Screw the auditions and concert tours, THIS should be the topic of the next WACK documentary! Continue reading

Kerrie Interviews Idols: Kai (Screaming Sixties)

What a wild ride. I only just recovered from Maison Book Girl last month, and now I’m back from hanging out with three other idol acts with barely any time to relax in between each one. I feel like I’ve ascended to a new plane of existence. A huge thank you to everybody who made this happen, from the Orion and show staff to Maniac and you guys, the readers (a couple of whom I even met on Monday! Sorry if I seemed awkward!) you’re the best.

Before Maniac changed plans to honor the new Oshi, this interview with Screaming Sixties’s very own Kai was the first of the week. Sadly, her partner in crime, Montero, couldn’t make it to the UK due to some last-minute visa issues, so Kai came completely alone this time around. But at the show, she promised to come back and bring Montero with her! Be warned, England.

Despite being nervous at going it alone, nobody would have been able to tell from Kai’s dominant energy and confidence once she was on stage. It was as if Montero was still performing for us, we just couldn’t see her. Like her spirit had possessed Kai to create one super-powerful being to make up for her absence. What I’m trying to say, is that Kai rocked it, and did an amazing job despite the unexpected setbacks.

Kerrie Interviews Idols: 2&

The BLACK WINDS OVER ALBION tour wasn’t all wotagei and sudden friend-betraying crown theft; it was also a chance for Homicidols.com to get a little bit closer to some of the idols we’ve been covering since the very beginning. Official WACK Meme and UK Idol Tour Interview Correspondent Kerrie was at the show in Manchester and got to connect with everybody. Here’s the first installment.

Saki’s set was the first and the shortest of the night, much like how she was also the shortest idol of the night. (I’m sorry!) But what she lacked in height she more than made up for with her intense stage presence.

This woman is a powerhouse. Even backstage, while I was in the middle of interviewing Necroma, I spotted her out of the corner of my eye jumping up and down on the spot. She is a bundle of energy, both on-stage and off.

She did seem a little nervous once it came to the actual interview part, as she read her answers for me in English from her notebook, but to be honest, I was probably even more so. I’ve strongly admired Saki ever since discovering Guso Drop (one of my top three favourite units up until they disbanded last year), and now we were stood in a hallway (the quietest place we could find) speaking in English. But like the other idols I spoke to that night, she was really sweet in person, and an incredible performer on-stage.

Her set was wild! At one point I thought my ribs would get crushed by the Japanese wota who were behind me! She knows how to fire up an audience, that’s for sure! 100 percent worth the injury scare, would highly recommend, but maybe wear armour if you’re small and easily-breakable, she’s a powerful girl.

Migma HELLter, Amirite?

Um, guys…

What?

So at last night’s AQBI DIG event, it was announced that Kotejun, Popopo Po Po Jr. and Amari will graduate from MIGMA SHELTER on July 8, the same time that the group’s official hiatus begins.

We all knew that there would be a membership shake-up once the hiatus ended, however, the initial announcement led many of us to believe that the current girls would at least be safe and that this would simply be an update to fill the gaps Yoneko and Seisei left behind, rather than an almost total do-over of the current system. So it looks like the situation might just be far more dire than expected. Right now, it brings to mind two situations: Continue reading

You Too Can Get Down with Big Angel’s Diet Song

Oh hey, I almost missed this.

In the middle of their YouTube antics (yep, Big Angel are also YouTube idols now!) they dropped not one, but two music videos for “Diet Hajimenakya”, a dance shot and a close-up shot. How very pre-2012 Hello! Project!

Okay, okay, it’s very low-budget, but at least they were kind enough to provide an English translation so now I know this song is my actual life story right now. Continue reading
