Well, team, today’s the day that we turn social media black and white in honor of BiS. Why do we do it? Because so much of what we love probably wouldn’t even exist if BiS hadn’t come into the world six years ago, hadn’t run roughshod over idol for three-point-five years and gone out on their own terms. What they spawned, that’s all the fun and drama that we hold dear.
And they’re back! Only Pour Lui still persists from the original lineups, but it’s still BiS, and goodness knows what happens from here. Their music, their antics, the sheer force of personality involved, it’s all thrilling. We’re living a moment here, people.
And that’s what #NewIdolArmy is all about. Japan has been celebrating the return of BiS since Brand-new Idol Society 2 dropped on Wednesday (two consecutive top-20 days on Oricon!), and BiS and WACK are basking in that domestic glow. But we, as international fans, we can show our love, too, and that’s what #NewIdolArmy is all about.
Read Brian’s original post wherein the plan is laid out, then come get your stuff.
First, for the purposes of your personal photography, download the poster if you haven’t already.
Second, for if you want to turn your own Twitter/Facebook/whatever profiles IDOL:
I kicked around some (even some serious) suggestions yesterday, and of course feel free to send BiS your messages however you see fit!
If you’re on Twitter, remember to tag @BiSidol and use #NewIdolArmy when you tweet your images. Tag the members, too, and send messages about how awesome they are.
If you aren’t on Twitter but are on Facebook, go ahead and add your images and stuff in this post in the Idolmetal group.
And if you don’t like social media but still want to take part, you can pop your photos into the comments here, and I’ll tweet them out with any message you want to send.
So let’s go have fun! This week’s gif party will instead be a meme party working with the same theme — stay tuned!
