Hello! Last week I asked you all to come up with your idol-themed anime ideas, and maybe pester Crunchyroll to translate the Backstage Idol Story anime. Well, the latter wasn’t successful, but hey, you came up with some quality plots last week, and that’s good enough for me.
This is going to be a short one. Mainly because I’m out of ideas and I already used Maniac’s suggestion for Idol Alignments a few weeks ago. But if there’s something you never fail to assist me with, it’s Friday Fun suggestions, and I love you for that! Continue reading
Hi everyone! Looks like I picked a goodie for last week’s hashtag, a lot of you were having a whale of a time with #IdolsAsFriendsEpisodes!
Similar to last week, this week’s hashtag is related to TV. Only this time, instead of playing around with the naming theme of an existing show, you’ll actually be coming up with your own show ideas! But first, some backstory that isn’t needed at all, but I need to make sure this article is actually more than two sentences long, so roll with it. Continue reading
Oh hey, would you look at that, I managed to pull myself away from Splatoon 2 and Guso Loss long enough to write this week’s Friday Fun!
Here’s last week’s entries:
You know what today is? Well, the day this gets published, anyway. It’s the day after my birthday! I’m officially way too old to ever have my imaginary idol debut! But I’m at my peak for graduation! Yay.
So how about a more personal-ish theme this week? And by personal I mean let’s refer to a TV show that pretty much defined my teenage years, some obscure 90’s show called Friends. Continue reading
Editor’s note: Kerrie drafted this very early in the week. When I contacted her yesterday to ask if she wanted to revise it in the wake of the worst news so far this year, her only response was a random, jumbled collection of all-caps letters and numbers. Because I think she can currently only express herself by mashing a keyboard and incoherently crying out into a loveless universe, I’m leaving her original as-is. Marvel at the sudden anachronism!
Hi everyone! As of writing its almost midnight, I’m listening to an online vaporwave radio station to relax myself into sleeping (that Homercidols stunt came from love, you know!) and to block out the neighborhood douchebags having their nightly drunken arguments, and a song just came on of some announcer dude rambling in Japanese, and amongst this Japanese rambling I managed to catch the gairaigo “passcode” and I was like “Heh. PassCode.”
Can you tell I’m half-asleep?
Anyway, in that brief moment I had the realisation “Hm, on that note I should probably get the next Friday Fun ready ASAP because Splatoon 2 comes out on Friday and I’ve been waiting months for this, nothing is going to be able to drag me out of squid hell to do anything productive in the coming days” so, here we are.
We actually had two things going on this week! Our main Friday Fun and a mini-Fun, which I guess would actually be called a Tuesday Fun?
First, the best of #IdolMerchNoOneWants aka can you guess which of these products I would actually buy?
Secondly, as per Brian‘s suggeston, we also brought back #CocoReacts for one day only, to celebrate the birthday of my Gang Parade best girl. There was a lot of cake.
Maniac: If you’d like to see the results of last night’s impromptu #GusoDropIsOverParty, you can do that outside of this HTML. Continue reading
Phew! I almost forgot about this until good guy Maniac poked me and said “Hey lazybones, you think just because you got to talk to Necroma last week you can start slacking off?” Praise be the Maniac.
Anyway, here’s last week’s highlights:
Do you think it’s been too long since I used a Friday Fun to make fun of the WACKy old fool himself Junnosuke Watanabe? Or has it been too recent? I can’t actually remember. But whatever, I was looking at the new BiSH merch and what the hell is this? Continue reading
I’m sure by now you’ve all read Krv’s take on last week’s NECRONOMIDOL one-man in London, if not check it out here, because he put this experience into words far better than I ever could! But let’s just say; it was only a few months ago that I said that I’ll probably never attend an idol show for personal reasons (aka Japan is expensive), if you told March!Kerrie that in 4 months time she’d be having a quick chat with Necroma inside a tiny kitchen she’d say “did I get drunk and post bad self-insert fanfiction again?” But now I’ve had a few days to reflect on what the heck just happened, I can certainly say it’s real. I have audio files and photos to prove it. Continue reading

Hello everyone! I just got back from my trip to see Necronomidol as of writing. I had an absolute blast! Amazing show, meeting Necroma is an experience that I will never forget, and I also got to meet and hang out with a good portion of you! Big thanks to those who helped to get me up there and those who said hi and just made this whole experience the most fun I’ve had in hell knows how long, I love you guys! Let’s hope Ricky keeps to his promise of sending Necroma to Britain again so we can do this again!
Or if any of you happen to be at Juice=Juice later this year, which unless their recent line-up change also brings a new look and sound as Hello!Pro’s first JuiceMetal idols I doubt I’ll be writing about that here
Last week’s Friday Fun, we literally put words into Zero’s mouth!
This week’s theme is a lot more broad than the last two weeks. And it’s all around the concept of “that doesn’t look right.” Continue reading
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!
Tweet your edits with #ReiSays and #零ちゃん大喜利大会 and let’s see if the reception will be as entertaining as #YuraSmile!
You know how I can never figure out if Up Up Girls (2) are official members of Up Up Girls (Kari) or just a sister group? Well, I’m still trying to figure that one out in my head, as last time we saw them they appeared as members/back-up dancers in Kari’s music videos but now they’re releasing their debut single, without any involvement from the original Up Up Girls (Kari) whatsoever!
Its released August 15, and it’s a double A-side between “Sun!x3” and “No no Ashi Dancing”. Continue reading

Hi everyone, how’s the week been? I actually had to check back on last week’s Friday Fun entries because I’m half-asleep right now (thanks heatwave) and forgot! For shame! Last week’s #BadIdolNames certainly brought some good (or should I say terrible) suggestions.
I want Tentenkocococococokoto to be real.
I was stuck for ideas for this week’s Friday Fun. I had a few in the bag to be chosen, I just didn’t know which to go for.
But then like she was reading my mind, Pour Lui went and tweeted this an hour ago (as of writing):
I mean, what kind of fans would we be to let her down like that? Continue reading
