Yui loss, day 110. The sun staggers slightly behind, like the bands of time are worn and stretched like an old cassette tape. my horse dies silently.still,I follow this path, where eating, sleep, warmth are all abstract concerns, like watching an old movie.#IdolFanFicMadness
Got a new part-time feature ’round these parts, kids
Welcome to the first edition of Withdrawn Wednesday! Ever look back on your oshis of times gone by and wonder “what are they up to now?”
Speaking as someone who lost 90 percent of her oshis last year, I sure do! So, we’re trying out a new column that totally isn’t just an excuse to continue to spam Homicidols with post-idol Saris and Tentenkos, nosiree. Starting with every second Wednesday of the month, think of this column as a cross between our own Weekender and Buzzfeed “Remember ___? This is them now” articles. Why every second Wednesday? Well, when you’re following a bunch of girls who aren’t really doing much, there’s not really enough content to make this a weekly thing. And “second” as in “second chance” (or third, or fourth for some determined ladies).
Either way, maybe you’ll come across a lost oshi or two?
Your Lost Oshi: Where Are They Now?
I’m pretty sure the reason why Sari hid her bare face for so many years was that her true form is so overwhelmingly beautiful that it could have launched a thousand ships and the shironuri was merely a safety precaution to prevent an all-out war from breaking out.
How’s it going everyone? Same old? Sure has been for me at least, because (excluding the ones that were announced last year) I just got my first major oshi graduation announcement of 2019! Whoo-hoo?
Idol fans: chained in the cave and only staring at the shadows of oshi on the wall. The more glow sticks you hold, the clearer the shadows. But you never see the real oshi. Idols: enlightened(尊い).#MakeIdolDeep
Idol doesn’t exist. Songs you hear, performers you are seeing are manifestations of your desires for social acceptance. A perfect world that exists within your mind. When you think you are speaking to an idol in person you’re really talking to yourself in the mirror#MakeIdolDeep
Speaking of oshis however, you know who hasn’t graduated yet? Former Guso-now-Burst YuraPico, that’s who! In addition, her birthday just happens to be coming up this Sunday! And once again, her birthday event is named #YuraSmile of all things. Continue reading →
I can’t believe we almost went a week without a Friday Fun, lads. Yep, I think seeing Sari’s unwhitened face blew me away so much that I was incapable of rational thought! Then I saw some guys on Facebook arguing over the deeper meaning of Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” and I swore I could see the lightbulb just flashing above my head! Continue reading →
Good evening, Mr Watanabe. I'm Aya Termin Eight Or Prince and tonight I will be assassinating you to prevent the dystopian future whence I have come, and also singing "Plastic 2 Mercy".#MyWACKAuditionName
So. First week of January. The week an idol fan always dreads. Never mind the devastating graduations that were already announced beforehand, early January is prime time for sudden and often gutwrenching graduation and disbandment announcements. And ‘hoo boy, did we get a wave of sadness this week.
Never mind the day I’ve been dreading, the departure of our beloved oshi, the day they I purposefully chose to do housework over checking Twitter as often as possible for minimum sadness (more on that later). Kotao’s farewell is not far off, much to SupremeNothing’s matching levels of misery. Then There There Theres Went Went Went, whatever the hell is going on with Hamidasystem happened. Then the Big Angel meme gremlins, Ton and Ran, jetpacked their way back to heaven just a few days after a certain video pretty much doubled the group’s overseas presence overnight. Saeki is Shuuengone (probably to follow in Haruna’s footsteps and joining WACK). Poor poor Nel Nehru. I could go on and on but it hurts.
So, back to housework to distract myself from a heartbreaking Necroma loss. It didn’t work. I’m still sad. But, I was able to distract myself. Instead of crying over Sari and Hina, I was crying because I found the revolting pile of dust and trash that had built up over a year behind Mr. Weeaboo’s computer desk. Much better! I think? Anyway, after having built up a reputation of “all my oshis graduate suddenly and tragically” the past few years, 2018 especially, I’m finally starting to find ways of coping with oshiloss.

What a month! This is the final Fun of the Holiday Extravaganza, as well as the final Fun of 2018! And you know what that means. Time to bring back an old favourite! But first, let’s look back at some of last year’s predictions. How many #2018IdolPredictions came true? Continue reading →
