Kerrie Interviews Idols (Again): NECRONOMIDOL

Ah, yes, arguably, the main event. It’s weird, actually. This is the second time I have interviewed Necroma (and the third time Homicidols has interviewed them overall), but I was still the most nervous about this particular interview.

I can say without a doubt that NECRONOMIDOL are my favourite unit nowadays. And Sari is not just the official Homicidols oshi of 2017-2018 (well), she also shares the joint podium with GANG PARADE’s Coco Partin Coco as my personal kamioshi. I was insanely excited, but terrified, to see them again.

Well, I’m sure enough people saw my Twitter fangirling to know that it went okay. They were all lovely to see again, as always. Rei even pulled out a chair for me to sit on as we started the interview! As it was Hina’s birthday in a couple of days, I gave her a gift bag of chocolate and a Hedwig plushie, and she was happy, and then I was happy! There’s a lot really that I could babble on about. There’s not much to say about their actual performance that hasn’t already been said before; they were absolutely captivating, as always. I think Sari’s facial spider may have been powering my ability to take photos, as once I noticed that it had fallen from her face, my camera ran out of space and my phone ran out of battery. Spooky!

I Review Things: NECRONOMIDOL | “STRANGE AEONS”

Man, it’s been a while since I last did a review. In fact, the last one was … uh … well. This is getting a little awkward. Three of the last four now? Seriously?

All right. So before I do NECRONOMIDOL again, let me say that I’m also making a new year’s resolution to get more idol records and do more reviews, including some older stuff. Including something that I’m going to publish in like the next couple of days to break up this Necroma run. And then something else.

Great. On to the review!

A Very Homicidol Night with NECRONOMIDOL

This is all that I could muster after a night that confirmed everything that I’ve been doing about this whole idol business. In front of gods and man and maniacs, NECRONOMIDOL had not only taken the stage and wreaked absolute havoc, but had cut a very different jib in meeting with me, in person, and providing some great insights.

Oh, and Oshi put on the tiara that I gifted her, and all was well. Continue reading

You’re Damn Right That the New Necroma Vinyl Is Boss as Hell

How could it be any other way?

So yeah, it’s basically NECRONOMIDOL Week, which is both a great and deeply disturbing thing when it’s realized, but come on: U.S. tour, fan club, VIP stuff … and OH LOOK IT’S A NEW VINYL RELEASE!

That’s a lot of pressure, Specific, even in French. Yeah, I said I’d review the thing, what of it? I AM UNCORRUPTIBLE! But let’s not kid around, this thing’s gonna be awesome. Continue reading

Necroma Makes It Terrifyingly Real, So Get Planning

Because your soul belongs to Oshi, remember?

Well, friends, the day has (gulp) finally arrived, and NECRONOMIDOL’s arrival on U.S. shores is not only definitely happening, but now thoroughly planned, and also barely a month away. Details are after the jump; first, feast your senses upon this video message from the members:


I understood Himari when she said “America”

This one’s personal, for what it’s worth. I don’t know how many folks read Colin’s old HuffPost piece on the idols set to break through to international audiences (in 2015!), making that heady jump from Babymetal to lots of great other stuff, but my dude even then was repping hard for Necroma, and they were still mere toddlers in the grand scheme of things. I had the same thought, though, that the darkness girls would catch on like a plague if given a chance to do so, and everything about Homicidols.com was ultimately about them and a handful of other projects (some of which have only come into existence since!), trying to help to build interest and support and bring them to this country.

Oshi Digest #7 (also New Necroma Single!)

This week’s Oshi Digest was held up for two days to both suitably honor the LIQUIDROOM one-man tour closer and also to give some breathing room to the “ABHOTH” MV; love them though I do, I don’t want to accidental my way into becoming NecronomiBlog

I think the LIQUIDROOM show went pretty well, you guys — Twitter is littered with messages from other idols to the Darkness Girls, and I can’t wait for the inevitable cut of video footage. Look at this:

And, as was foretold from the blood of infants spilled under a new moon, a new NECRONOMIDOL single will be upon us before the end of the year:

They debuted the song yesterday; I do not feel like waiting until December!

This is, however, Oshi Digest, so we must focus our attentions on Sari. Continue reading

From the Depths of Relative Hell, New NECRONOMIDOL

While preparing for that class I’m teaching last night, I was looking through my YouTube playlists and noticed something strange — the videos from the Necroma 24 had all been deleted. How strange! I thought. Perhaps the event’s specialness was being preserved by Ricky. Perhaps he forgot to lay the proper enchantments upon the cameras, and the recordings of such vile evil were bound to deteriorate out of sheer attrition in the epic battle between darkness and light. It could’ve been anything!

But then the cat was let out of the bag this morning; a new NECRONOMIDOL video, you guys!

Necroma Can Get in on the 24-hour Game, Too

This slipped through the cracks for me the other day; if I hadn’t be oshi-ing yesterday, I’d have missed it again:

To prep for their tour-ending one-man at LIQUIDROOM, Necroma’s going to do the 24-hour thing, 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. I believe that we may be able to view remotely? Ricky, if you’re out there, please illuminate us as to exactly what’s going to happen during those 24 hours. We know that the only one of the members who actually needs human sleep is Rei, but how do you fill that space in time? Continue reading

I Review Things: NECRONOMIDOL | ‘DAWNSLAYER’

I love being on press lists! When the presser email came in yesterday, I did a little jig to myself and immediately downloaded the review copy of “DAWNSLAYER.” I listened to the whole thing through twice, bothered Terry about it, bothered other people I know about it, and decided that “yeah, so you don’t normally review singles but come on it’s basically an EP there are five total songs and also Necroma,” so here we are. On to the review!

We Interview Idols: NECRONOMIDOL

I’m sure by now you’ve all read Krv’s take on last week’s NECRONOMIDOL one-man in London, if not check it out here, because he put this experience into words far better than I ever could! But let’s just say; it was only a few months ago that I said that I’ll probably never attend an idol show for personal reasons (aka Japan is expensive), if you told March!Kerrie that in 4 months time she’d be having a quick chat with Necroma inside a tiny kitchen she’d say “did I get drunk and post bad self-insert fanfiction again?” But now I’ve had a few days to reflect on what the heck just happened, I can certainly say it’s real. I have audio files and photos to prove it. Continue reading
