Well, this is something that we’ve been neglecting to post about ever since Up Up Girls (Kari) got added to the Homicidols roster. Luckily, Maniac just gave admin rights to someone who as you may have guessed from the Friday Funday posts, is also a Hello! Project fan, and that includes groups made up of ex-trainees from their kenshuusei (known as Egg at the time) program, and what do you know, something big is happening that said admin has completely forgotten to update you on since it was announced! My bad.
Considering that they disbanded with a big ol’ alumni+ show back in December, I don’t know why I kept notifications turned on for Mugen Regina, but I did, and this tidbit sneaked by in the wee hours:

If you follow the link, and then click on the top news bit, there’s the info: They’re re-forming with completely new members, and auditions are on the way. Continue reading
I’m starting to think that I need to start censoring Kerrie, but she’s on a roll and I’ll be darned if I’m going to stop giving myself reasons to literally laugh out loud multiple times every Friday-Sunday. Take it away, kid.
“This is going to be the last WACK-themed event I’ll do in a while,” I said. “People are gonna get bored of this really quick,” I said. And then what do you know, the exact day #IdolPublicityStunts begins, Watanabe drops the bombshell that is a WACK-wide audition with girls from every group he manages coming to the final training camp! What?
Well, with news like that, how can I not encourage everyone to make their own predictions as to what happens? But before we get to that, lets have a look at #IdolPublicityStunts. You guys did great on this one, as expected.
[Maniac: For the record, this was all really good, but Daemon wins.] Continue reading
Last week, I made the unwise decision to notification-follow Watanabe on Twitter. At first, I was really just looking for new stuff about the BiSathon (so we could do our own!), but that wasn’t panning out and I was bored, but then came one of the ominous “something will happen at 22:00!” tweets, and … well, given that BiSH was the only part of the company that he hadn’t molested in a while, let’s just say that a quick RT from that group’s account had me convinced that the Captain herself was graduating immediately and had set the rest of the roster on fire.
This is no way invalidates that fear!

Regardless of the outcome of the U.S. presidential election, THE WiLD TRUMPS had slated themselves for a Nov. 26 live demolition, which they billed as a death and rebirth. I thought, hey, this is a spin-off from Aoyama St. Hachamecha High School, it’ll probably get a refresh because the angle will be kind of stale after the election (and weird if Trump wins!), but I bet not much changes and …
They actually streamed a good portion of what turned out to be the group’s last live on Periscope:

Make sure to stick through to the end (or skip there, whatever wets your whistle). Continue reading
Seeing this announcement last night sent me into a weird fit of going through Twitter and Facebook to see what I’d missed, but this is literally just popping out of the blue:

So the Queens of Yami-Kawaii are auditioning. And not just in that way that idol groups do, which is to always have an eye on available people who might be good fits (like how Bellheart holds auditions more or less constantly and hasn’t debuted a new member since Moechi graduated). Like, they’re looking for “highly motivated individuals.” Continue reading
The song is called “Bloody Knife” because of course it is. After the weird rope-a-dope of this morning, I could use a good stabbing.
Also, some of the most interesting choreography
Leaving this pinned. If you’re looking for fresh news and stuff, just scroll down a tad.
Your new BiS:
- Pour Lui
- Yokoyama Hina
- Nagayama Yukiko
- Koshouji Megumu

Three out of five, but five, ain’t bad!
Quickie updates from the field:

You were right, Garry!
@homicidols They don't have agreement from the girls yet, but it's in the process of discussion. Pour Lui and Watanabe wouldn't be in charge
— ぴちぇる (18) (@no3982) September 3, 2016
I’m sure they’re thankful for that!

Called SiS! Of course!
Totally amazing work. Still wondering if this includes that lousy quitter Ton Tonko.

We’ve seen the hidden symbols. We’ve seen the changes in the members’ behavior. And we’ve ever seen a small glimpse of how one former rival has been subtly rehearsing for a role that she must for some reason believe could be available to her soon.
First a new alt-rock idol group with some relationship to the raven’s nest debuts and is cool and fun, and then this:
— BELLRING少女ハート：公式 (@BRGHead) August 12, 2016
That’s Kai. By Bellring Girls Heart standards, she’s more likely to watch and laugh while somebody else bites your finger off than to do the biting herself. She’s also quite the prolific person, apparently. Continue reading
