Last week, I had other problems on my mind, forgot the Fun, then my solution as always, was “Food!”
I still have things on my mind as of writing today’s Fun (hey, at least it’s on time!), specifically, this week’s Indie, Idol and Infamous Tour. Yup, I’m gonna try and inevitably fail to score some dirt on the latest batch of idols visiting my home country, then cry on the way home after I embarrass myself! But, surely, there must be a way I can embarrass myself ever so slightly less? Perhaps even prepare myself for any other idols I might run into in the future? Or maybe you just want to snark about Homicidols being a terrible website. Hey, it’s your call! Continue reading
Sorry I’m late again! Last week, you came up with concepts for idol cover albums!
You know what’s been a thing in idol lately? Cafes. There’s of course the AKB48 cafe, Tsubaki Factory and Morning Musume had pop-up cafes recently, even WACK had their own half-assed version of a “cafe” (if by cafe you mean grab a BiS soda at Tower Records).
Last week’s fun was a real brainteaser for a lot of you! Let’s take a look:
It’s a pretty funny coincidence that both of the most recent albums that I’m the most hype for just happen to be cover albums; you’ve got Bed In’s Endless Bubble out this week, but also, in the longest wait for a new idol release, my all-time favourite idol unit and queens of cover songs W finally released a collection of their canceled music (okay, that one is an EP, and the title track is an original song, but it’s W damn it!).
Yep, these past two weeks I’ve been all about cover albums. I want more! More! So this week, come up with some good concepts for idol cover albums. The hashtag is #IdolCoverAlbums and now I’m going to listen to Choi Waru Devil for the billionth time.
You asked for fitspo? I’ll give you fitspo! Cry now because you’ll never have biceps like these swole legends!

I was going to avoid Twitter this week. I wanted to avoid this audition. But noooo. All the big news just happened to arrive this week! Necroma’s Europe tour, my favourite idol duo of all time releasing lost material after 14 years, my current favourite idol duo releasing material after about year and a halfish, and I think Kamiya Saki just drew fanart of something I tweeted last year. So I came back, I saw the tweets about the audition, I wept for Trivago a second time in a row, it was chaos! But how correct were your responses?
Speaking of WACK, we all know WACK stands for “Watanabe Artistic Creative Corporation” BiSH stands for “Brand-new Idol SHiT”, BiS is “Brand-new Idol Society”, and amiinA stands for “Awake mind into ideal naked Avalon” (according to the mysterious stranger that submitted this week’s hashtag into the Friday Fun suggestion box I keep saved for whenever I forget to write something up again) but what about our other favourites? Yeah, PassCode might SEEM like a straightforward name for an idol group, but who knows if it really means “Please Ask Sally’s Secretary, Caitlyn, On Data Entry”? And what the hell does Gu-Gu LULU even mean!? I need answers and I need them now!
This week’s hashtag is #IdolAcronyms and … sorry about the WACK Audition guys. Yikes.
If you haven’t discovered Bed-In yet, now would be a pretty good time to look into them. I wrote a bit about them last year, but 2018 was a fairly quiet year for the duo, as they spent more time touring and being best friends with First Summer Uika than they did releasing any new material.
Thankfully, next month they’re finally releasing their third album, and what better concept for an 80s-themed idol duo to come out with than a whole album of 80s J-Pop covers!
We haven’t got any full-length music videos yet, but some of the songs have already been made available on digital platforms. And if you’re not sure if you’re ready to open Spotify yet, well, Bed In also uploaded some not-quite-MVs-but-not-quite-commercials (teasers?) for said songs on their YouTube:
As predicted, last week’s Friday Fun backfired horribly!
You know what else will probably backfire in horrible ways? This week’s upcoming WACK audition! Continue reading
While last week was bare bones in the way of graduated oshi content, there was suddenly such a big influx of photos and news this time around that we didn’t even have to wait an extra week! Or maybe we just got better at looking. Either way, if there’s a graduated Homicidol we aren’t covering, let us know! Sometimes they pop up in the strangest of places!
Your Graduated Oshi: Where Are They Now?
Kuromiya Rei fans, BRATS have a new MV out!
