It May Be a Gag, But It Could Also Be My New Favorite Oyaholo Song

April Fool’s Day falls somewhere on the idol holiday ranking spectrum between Halloween and Twin Tails Day, though an argument could be made that more energy and creatively goes into getting a rise out of fans with excellently crafted jokes and spit-takes than into the rest of idol’s annual cycles combined. And as it should be! We here at Homicidols Dot Com clearly enjoy having fun with (and often making fun of) idols and the self-serious loutishness that all too often adheres itself to the scene.

That said, nothing says loving quite like idols embracing the spirit of the day and going all-out in the pursuit of laughs, even at their own expense. And nothing does that better than Oyasumi Hologram absolutely knocking this out of the park:

What’s funny (not in the way that they intend, or maybe!) is that this nods directly at the stripped-down, lilting ethereal work that’s Oyaholo’s calling card at even their rockin’est, but folks who know are well aware of their collaborations with VMO and how frighteningly well August-chan and Kanamil work in a black metal kind of framework. So it’s like a double piss take!

I love this so much, I wish I could frame it.

Work Yourself Down to a Mere Speck of Existence with This Dots Workout

Let’s get motivated with the best of Dot-chan!

Nerves of Steel

It’s Monday. Don’t you just feel like idling around calmly?

WELL, THAT’S NOT AN OPTION TODAY.

Instead of being idle, consider being an idol (or as close as possible).

Well, here comes #NERVEORDiE.

To do so, let’s go and learn the dance to the alt-idol anthem that is Nerve. Your challenge: Let us know how many times you have managed to do Nerve in a row. Use the hashtag on Twitter! Share your results in a friendly competition with strangers on the internet!

All bets are off for what you do around it. Do you want to stage your own WACK-concert minus the ridiculous employee conditions? Would you  rather jump around your living room chaotically throwing your arms and legs back again and again and again?

To keep you motivated, here is a playlist of lives and covers of your new favourite workout, complete with familiar faces!

The Very Best Shoes for Hard Idoling

There are four basic categories of hardol footwear, but which is right for you and your style of idoling? To burn those calories most effectively you need to sport the right gear, so today we’ll start our head-to-toe series covering idol workout essentials with the feet.  It’s gotta be the shoes! 

Let’s start with the preference of kawaii metal and hardcore units:

Boots

With a boot, you get a solid, flat base for stability and options for a wide toe drop, but pay attention to cushioning. Dr. Marten’s famous Airwalk soles have inspired songs and supported groups like BABYMETAL and NECRONOMIDOL during their marathon sets.

For a stylish look in the gym or on stage, try the Triumph 1460 with a silver buckle accent, but for no-nonsense performance, we recommend the more lightweight Talib Brando Chukka. If you need full-coverage ankle support you may have to go off-brand, but look for a flexible knee-high riding boot.

For a more lightweight and comfortable option, look to the preference of many post-punk or alt-rock units like BiSH and Yanakoto Sotto Mute Continue reading

Oshi Digest #33: Fool

How beloved is Oshi? Not long after effectively begging herself out of the Corenament, living dead girl Hanako-san is still showing off those custom Sari buttons that she made:

This Oshi Digest is about Oshi’s very good April Fools’ Day joke. Presented without additional commentary! Continue reading

Become Patron, Win Prize

Hey gang! If you love the stupid antics, half-baked theories and unnecessarily convoluted events of Homicidols.com, now’s a great time to become a patron!

What do you get? Ordinarily, not much! I usually ask the patrons for input on next things, developments and the like, because I frankly don’t have the time to get too wild with it. Patrons also get the sense of satisfaction that comes with providing some funds that make it easier to keep the site’s lights on!

But now, thanks to our incredible, unbelievable relationship with WACK, we have a great one-time-only giveaway for one lucky patron! Continue reading

A Very Special Collaboration between Homicidols and WACK

So ever-so-briefly, Watanabe himself tweeted this out earlier:

It was a mistake, and he’s since deleted it, but I may as well let the cat out of the bag now so that you all can get ready for the first official partnership between Homicidols.com and The Most Infamous Man in Idol. Continue reading
