Well, that was just dang adorable! The track, “Kasei no Koibito” (or “Martian’s Lover” in English) has actually been available on online platforms such as iTunes and Spotify for about a month now, and has already become of my personal most-played tracks of the year so far. But if you haven’t already listened to it yet, now is your chance to appreciate Yoneko’s dreamy brand of electro-pop for yourself. The music video, following hot off the heels of “Auoo”, follows a similar kind of breezy, playful expression that’s like a cross between Oomori Seiko and a child’s bedtime story. Yoneko already proved herself a force to be reckoned with long before she even became a soloist, but I can say with certainty that she is an idol to look out for in 2019.
The past fortnight has been a little quiet for lost oshis. But what did you expect? They’ve graduated! Still, here’s some highlights we’ve collected the past couple of weeks of our biweekly “Remember ____? This is them now ft. Tentenko” segment. Remember, if you discover a former idol doing things elsewhere, let us know, and we’ll feature them in the next edition of Withdrawn Wednesday!
In the sequel #FyredolFes 2 the evil developers manage to shut down the following years festival by bribing the local authorities. HM has to become a professional skateboarder & win the first prize of a local skateboarding competition after multiple musical training montages.
Raise your hands; who else saw this and thought “If Banamon somehow became big enough to start getting brand deals while still keeping their apparent concept of cringe, this is exactly the kind of thing they’d advertise” and then die a little inside because seeing anything related to Banamon just sort of does that to you?

As an avid fan of all three of those names listed, how could I not give Ikigusare a chance? So, going into it blind, I can say … yup, that sure was an excruciating yet somewhat enjoyable experience of three Sega Saturn-looking girls singing about eating hamsters I just sat through!

Yup, it appears Necroma newb Kenbishi Kunogi has her own band, Lilium Mu, and her own MV!
It’s good! Definitely a palate-cleanser after that other MV from yesterday; the only questionable thing to happen here is Kunogi’s preference for pineapple on pizza! I’m not entirely sure how long Lilium Mu has been going for, so a solo MV after she’s already debuted in Necroma was a bit of a surprise. But a good one! While I love seeing her in Necroma, I wouldn’t mind seeing more band material if it keeps up to the same standard.
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.
