In a spirited affair, reminiscent of Homicidol’s own Corenament, minus the spambots and cheating, Zekkyou took on the bathykolpian divas of KNU, who took victory in A block with the theme of performing in their own clothes, and the relatively tame Mirai Skirt of B block, with the theme of using dialects. The theme this time around was covering the debut songs of other artists.
KNU chose to cover “Odoru Ponpokorin” by B.B.Queens, Zekkyou covered Puffy’s “Asia no Junshin” and Mirai Skirt covered the amazing “Chokotto Love” by Pucchimoni. The voting was much as the previous rounds, with each group providing 30 fans, and the groups ranked from first to last to avoid just everyone voting for themselves.
Maniac: I skipped it ahead a little, but by all means go back to the beginning for the beer commercials and stuff
As weird luck would have it, in the course of voting for the winners in the first two contests, we ultimately only had … well, to call it one submission would be inaccurate: Rather, futon, the Redditor who’s made a legend out of Babymetal / legend mashups, shared an Imgur album that straight-up intimidated the competition away from competition.
PassCode’s Nao said that she wants a world where there aren’t idol fans and band fans, but music fans. And it is the Official Policy of Homicidols.com to agree with that sentiment. In fact, idols and bands should work together as often as possible and make beautiful things happen. To that end:
I Want to Look Like a Babymetal Roadie Prize Pack
In honor of Babymetal’s collaboration with Rob Halford, what’s your ideal scenario of idols joining legends of metal — or punk or hardcore or really anything — on stage? Taking a page from the Homicidol Mashup, use your image editing software of choice to create the image that best tells the story of our favorite kinds of idols joining with real legends of rock for a mind-blowing combo shot. Is it a still from an epic concert stage? A promo poster? Album art? A candid or even modeled photo? Let your imagination do the walking and your skills do the talking.
Because I’m an idiot sometimes, I got crossed up on when the last two contests were going to run, so the third is opening a day late; accordingly, the final two are both being pushed back a day.
We are loved. Through the extreme generosity of a very cool friend of the site who has asked to remain anonymous, a substantial bundle of Babymetal merch has fallen into my hands with the purpose of spreading the love far and wide. And sure, I could just give it away, but where’s the fun in that?
So here’s the deal: Beginning today, we’re going to have ourselves a series of contests, with a neat-o prize pack available to the winner of each. There’ll be a submission period followed by voting by the readership; yep, though I’d love to be the sole arbiter of what’s greatest, it’s your peers who will be the judges.
The general rules are simple: Create (or share what you’ve already created, if applicable) the required deliverable for each contest and post it in its respective thread on the forums within the submission period, and then voting will follow. If your creation wins, I’ll ship your prize to you. Particular considerations for each contest are in the descriptions below; unless otherwise noted, there’s no cap on an individual’s submissions.
