This has previously been discussed in the context of Necronomidol making a pitch for support, but Pascal on Facebook re-alerted me to Tokyo Candoll and put together for me why a bunch of groups were suddenly tweeting about it.
Here’s Pascal’s message:
In brief: Tokyo Candoll is a contest in Japan to decide which idol group will play on a big stage in Japan Expo (Paris). 92 contesters in february, 49 nowadays, and a few of them are well-known of this page.
The accompanying article is in French, but it does include photos, so let’s all look at who was in the running.
There’s a second list here for all of the whos who have been passed into the quarterfinals. Among the homicidols on the list are Yandoll, And Crazy, Deathrabbits, Under Beasty and Necronomidol. Also included are Hauptharmonie, who are nonetheless awesome, and RHYMEBERRY, who have no place here but will definitely be part of the sister site that I never seem to have time to develop.
Here’s video of Necroma finding out that they’re still in the running:

Little-known fact: Every other idol on that stage has been stricken with a mystery illness and a boundless depression. Necronomidol management has declined to comment.
By the way, anybody else notice that we seem to have lost the Deathrabbits crew since last weekend’s voting debacle? Tamas Kiss, we miss you!
