Surprisingly, as of writing this, there hasn’t been any bonkers Banamon news come out. Maybe they read your predictions of their future and are quietly discussing how to avoid every single one of them.
In an idol first, Banamon has a membership of -2 when a bunch of non-members crash the stage to announce their graduation from the group. #FutureOfBanamon
3978: A group of astronauts crash-land on a distant planet inhabited by controversial publicity hungry idols. After being captured by and escaping from the idols they find the remains of the Tokyo Skytree on a shoreline.#FutureOfBanamon
Well, it’s finally December. I’ve been playing the O’CHAWANZ Christmas rap on loop and panicking over all the last-minute Best-Of preparations. It’s a cause for celebration! So, I’m doing something special, yet tedious this month. Behold, the
HOMICIDOLS FRIDAY FUN HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!
That’s right! The entire month of December, you’re getting a very special holiday-themed Friday Fun every week until 2019! How long can you go without getting fed up of Wa~ Marry Pin’Xmas? Let’s see! Continue reading →
It’s almost December already? Just like 99% of my oshis, this past year has just disappeared before my eyes! Soon we’re all going to be drowning in Best Of 2018 preparations! But don’t get too excited for the Holidays yet, we’ve got to cry over last week’s tragic auditions first.
I swear, with the news of BiSH starting a new show where they explore Japan’s ins-and-outs, I was so so tempted to do another WACK-inspired fun this week about idols exploring the hidden cultures of other countries. But:
Having two WACK funs in a row has been banned ever since I got that anonymous letter that said “Coco’s next if you don’t stop this”
It would literally just be me, Salem and Chris spamming the “Necroma eating Greggs” photo and nothing else
While discussing this week’s Fun with the Homicidols team, the idea floated around of making a Thanksgiving-themed fun. #IdolThanks perhaps? But, me being British, Thanksgiving means nothing to me except “You mean we stole Black Friday from this but not an extra delicious turkey dinner?” so instead, here’s something more relevant to me; getting mad at WACK!
A documentary of this year’s WACK audition, also known as “Trivago Hell: The Movie” is coming out in January! Anyone else just got a pang of misery? Well, so did the people making this movie, because even the title is literally called “The World’s Saddest Audition” in Japanese! Also, doesn’t this title sound so exploitable? To come up with even sadder audition scenarios perhaps? Continue reading →
In a fandom where half of us have no idea what our faves are talking about, it’s very easy for them to be misquoted on certain topics. Which means its also easy to make up fake quotes for shits and giggles and possibly confuse a bunch of people! Observe: Continue reading →
Ohohohohohoho oh lordy! Last week, in the midst of oshi-loss, Supreme Nothing kindly took the reigns with his own dealio. Then right as I was starting to feel better one of my all-time non-Homicidol oshis had her own little announcement to make! HAHAHAHA, I don’t feel anything any more! (At least, not until Coco decides her time is up, which considering my luck with oshis this year will probably already have been announced 5 minutes before this post goes up)
Anyway, Supreme Nothing, why don’t you summarize last week’s Fun while I rip out my tear ducts!
Thank you Kerrie! Well, truth be told, “Idoween”wasn’t exactly the highest trending Friday Fun hashtag ever, it was kinda just me, Andrew, and Salem the Black Cat playing along. (sad trombone) But that’s okay cause for one thing, not every edition of the Fun needs to break the internet, and second, Salem is a funny-as-heck cat that never fails to crack me up. He would definitely win the #Idoween hashtag award if there was such a thing….
Y’know, I always enjoy checking in every Friday to see what kind of wackiness (or WACKness) that Kerrie’s come up with, and now I feel like I appreciate how much work she puts into these hashtag fandom projects even more! (Here’s where I cue up Carly Simon’s James Bond theme from the 80’s…. “Nooooobody does it better…..”)
Thanks as always, Kerrie, back to you!!
Aaah, that’s better. Where were we? Oh right. Well, what else other than every idol I ever loved jumping ship, let’s see… -paper shuffles- Ah, right, the BiS League thing. That’s certainly a thing nobody ever wanted yet still gets forced upon us! Might as well make the best out of a bad situation (lord knows I’ve been doing it a lot lately). Continue reading →
Sigh. I’m going back to my crying hole now, can someone else do the fun this week? Thanks.
(This is Supreme Nothing stepping forward and awkwardly tapping on the mic…)
Kerrie, Kerrie, it’s okay!!!! We really do understand. I feel like the last week has been a group therapy and support session as we come to terms with a major impending idol loss. Even last Friday’s Fun took a fittingly tragic turn…
I’m not even gonna try to do the Fun as well as Kerrie. Instead I just talked it over with the rest of Team Homicidols and we came up with a “Group Fun Collaboration” of sorts related to Halloween! Continue reading →
It’s my favourite time of year again, good old Halloween! Now, you should already know by now to have “SAMHAIN” on repeat until November, but is that really enough idol spooks? Of course not, it’s Homicidols! So, we’re bringing back an old favourite for you all, partly because I’m lazy, partly because, it went so well the past couple of times, might as well make it tradition. Continue reading →
Last week, while I was trying to catch up on sleep, you shared your own sleeping experiences!
Whenever I wake up in the night from a dream, I grab my phone & type notes of whatever fragments I can recall, & then go back to sleep. So I have pages of weird & often funny dream ramblings I typed when I was half-asleep. Here’s one with BiSH & OyaHolo in it.. #DreamingIdolspic.twitter.com/Go0dzagkHA
Tentenko – Ten Tonka Truck Tracks The former idol who was named ‘Japanese Pop Music's Greatest Weirdo’ by Vice returns with a new recording based on her love of Tonka Trucks & the noise they make banging into each other.#TentenkoAlbumConceptspic.twitter.com/0x0H2eyqro
Inspired by the guerrilla release tactics popular with her previous management, her Black Metal debut: Forest Friends go to Norway was a surprise cassette release only available from Helvete Records in Bergen#TentenkoAlbumConceptspic.twitter.com/RY3tKnBHVH
Look guys, I’m gonna be frank with you. I’m exhausted. A lot of stuff has happened this week, personally. I don’t think I’ve slept in 3 days. And while that’s good for writing nonsensical album reviews that turn into terrible fanfiction (stay tuned!), it’s not that good for much else. Originally I was just going to unload this week’s Fun onto some other poor sap while I get some needed shut-eye, but instead, I’m going for an even lazier option, aka, digging through the Friday Fun archives for stuff we’ve already done but hopefully long enough that nobody really cares.

It’s no secret I love Tentenko. One of my favourite OG BiS girls, I bought her UK debut on vinyl even though I don’t even have a record player to listen to it on. Whether or not she still counts as an idol is a whole other debate but she’s very important to us here at Homicidols.com and even in her post-BiS career she embodies many of the idol traits we love; cute, outgoing and a total oddball.
