Withdrawn Wednesday #2

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if you discover a former idol doing things elsewhere, let us know, and we’ll feature them in the next edition of Withdrawn Wednesday!

Your Lost Oshi: Where Are They Now?

Did you know ex-Migma Shelter Seisei has a photobook? I sure didn’t! You can buy it here!

We (Blind!) Review Stuff- Gokitei’s MV for “Iketara Iku”

Whoops! This article came a bit late. Well, Maniac took the wheel for me last time Gokigen Teikoku released a music video, so really I have no excuse, let’s just watch it.

Since we, at Homicidols, believe it is always good to challenge your horizons, we put Papermaiden on the Gokigen Teikoku MV review this time.

Taking Inappropriate to New Heights with the Friday Fun

That’s right, it’s Friday again! How are you all doing after last week’s Fyredol Festival?

This is exactly why Homicidols.com will never have its own music festival, just so you know.

The other day, I was browsing SoraNews 24 and saw something that reminded me of my new favourite subjects of mockery, THE BANANA MONKEYS, that surprisingly wasn’t SoraNew’s actual article about THE BANANA MONKEYS.

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?

All the Adjectives in All the Languages Would Fail to Describe Ikigusare

Lessee here… so far on Homicidols we’ve covered chika idols, mainstream idols, K-Pop idols, anime idols … are we missing anything else on the idol spectrum?

That’s right, I don’t think we’ve covered virtual idols yet!

Well, everyone give a round of applause to bacci on twitter for introducing me to this curiosity last night:

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!

Catching up with Lilium Mu aka the Kunogi Band

I seriously don’t know how I can possibly follow up whatever the hell I just watched, but another MV in my area of interest (that is, NECRONOMIDOL members who were also ex-Gokitei; That’s two of my favourite groups!) was posted today, so here we go again.

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. 

As Good an Effort as Possible to Work through the New Banamon MV

I was initially going to talk about my recent discovery that Banamanagement, are indeed, Mad Lads. But then their newest MV came out and erased everything I wanted to say on the matter.

If that suspicious thumbnail didn’t scare you away, congratulations, your bravery shall upmost be rewarded. Continue reading

Fraud. Failure. Violence? The Friday Fun.

I don’t know why I even bother writing the Funs anymore because clearly they turn out better when I dump it onto one of the other writers!

I genuinely want to read some of these (no Salem, your erotic Watanabe fic isn’t one of them)

Did I already do a festival-themed fun? Oh, I did? It was one of the very first Funs? Well…

Withdrawn Wednesday #1

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.

Yoneko’s Living Her Best Solo Life

Her old home of AqbiRec might be falling apart before our very eyes, but at least we’re safe in knowing that Yoneko is still thriving without them.

How a Branding Exercise Became a Friday Fun: Electric Boogaloo

‘Hooooo boy I’m getting these oshi graduation announcements weekly now!

Thank goodness we still have Yura.

I’ll be real with you guys, this Fun was kind of done last-minute. Personal life sometimes gets in the way, you know?

Well, thank goodness our own Daemon exists and threw out this idea for a last-minute fun! Continue reading
