Wallow in the Worst with This Friday Fun

Last week, you reviewed idol releases in the easiest to consume way!

If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I love drawing idols. Even paid big bucks (okay, £40) on specific illustration software, even though my drawings are nowhere near that kind of professional quality that would justify such a purchase!

Back in the day of course, (and sometimes even now, if I’m feeling particularly lazy) if I had to draw anything on a digital medium, it had to be trusty, free, MS Paint. Who hasn’t used it at some point? Even though the program has become slightly more sophisticated over the years, let’s be real, it’s still pretty hard even for veteran artists to create something good out of it. Continue reading

A Most Succinct Friday Fun

Last week… Last week… what was last week? I just woke up.

Did you read Daemon’s excellent review of NECRONOMIDOL’s newest output this week? You should! Go do it! Now! I’ll wait.

What’s that? You don’t have the time for long album reviews any more? Tut tut. Look, I don’t know what you do, but that’s really not on. There has to be a way to condense all the opinions and little details spotted of an idol release in a small, easy to read format, right? Continue reading

This Friday Fun Celebrates the Other Thing You Waste Too Much Time On

Last week, we probably made Watanabe cry!

It’s E3 this week! As someone who has been waiting six god damn years for a new Animal Crossing game, I for one will definitely be staying tuned, and I know many of you will be too! So, this weekend let’s celebrate the two things I’ll be tweeting about most this week; video games and idols.

I’m pretty certain we did this before already, but hey, there’s only so much meme material you can think of before you have to loop back around again. So there you go. Continue reading

Punching Down Is So Satisfying in the Friday Fun

Last week, we saw some terrible idol names! And I also realised that this was another Fun we recycled without realising! Wow, I’ve lost all remaining shreds of originality!

Say, it’s been a while since I annoyed the hell out of everyone with yet another Friday Fun dedicated to Watanabe harassment, isn’t it? Well, everyone say, thank you Watanabe!

So, Twitter, why is he crying? BiSloss? Foreign fans? Totally not just getting emotional at his friend’s wedding nosiree we have no tolerance for sensible answers in this column!

So, have at it. Guess why our Junnosuke boy is crying with the hashtag of, well, #WhyJSKisCrying. What, I already said I’ve lost all shred of originality at this point.

A Friday Fun for When You Wish for Something Safe and Boring

Last week you described music videos, badly!

Today’s Friday Fun is brought to you by
BLACK HISTORY!
cana÷biss!
And the newly-announced Baby♡♡Holic!
You know what they all have in common?

Regardless of whether you think their music or members are good or not, they all have names that make you go “Wait… what are they called?”

Are their names technically good names because they bring forth attention and discussion from the overseas fandom? Or are they just plain bad? Either way, try telling someone your favourite J-Pop group is KinKi Kids and see their response. Continue reading

It’s Okay to Laugh at the Friday Fun

Last week, you predicted what the now-ex members of BiS would be doing after BiS. And… well, you might be right? You might not be? Honestly I was hoping the announcements of their futures last week would have been a bit more detailed. All I know is that I wept for Kika, just one of many lost oshis this year. Ah.

What’s more twitter than those tweets and hashtags challenging you to “Describe [x] badly?”. Actually, lots of things. Fanwars for one thing (think I’m gonna wait for things to cool off a little before I introduce my “draw idols better than Inagawa Jun” hashtag). But, nonetheless, it’s something that I see a lot. “Describe your favourite movie badly”, “Describe the ending of a game badly”. I think we’ve already done “Describe your favourite idol” before, but no-one’s done music video, right? I hope not, because that’s this week hashtag! Well? Get on it! #BadlyDescribeAnIdolMV, off you go!

A Friday Fun about Next Steps

Well, I’m suitably traumatized!

What is it about WACK that brings out the cursed in people?

Speaking of traumatized, BiS are finally disbanding again tomorrow after having gone through more than enough trauma of having to deal with Watanabe than the average person could probably handle. You’ll see my thoughts about the whole thing in another article this weekend (provided they don’t reveal that this was an elaborate joke all along) but for now, lets just meme the hell out of it today and cry about it tomorrow! Continue reading

A Friday Fun to Top Off Your Nightmare Fuel

It’s May! Now, where were we? That’s right, we were watching some #IdolSitcoms!

Always one to jump on a trainwreck, I saw the live-action Sonic trailer this week. Now, this isn’t a movie review site but… pfffffft.

Anyway, I tried to fix Sonic, and kind of failed.

https://twitter.com/weeaboowitch/status/1123548396772560896

Why am I talking about this? Well, I ran out of ideas for Funs again, then saw ol’ Sonic and thought “Alright, let’s just do that with idols”. Continue reading

A Friday Fun for Family Night in the Living Room

Last week you came up with some wild #ThingsNotToAskIdols items! Let’s see what you got:

Aside from eating and idols, another thing I like to waste my life with are sitcoms from the 90s or so. Granted, there have been times where I have not survived where others thrived, but shows like Friends and Frasier are on my constant rewatch playlists. So, like everything else I enjoy, let’s muck it all up with idols. Continue reading

A Most Inappropriately Impertinent Friday Fun

Last week, I had other problems on my mind, forgot the Fun, then my solution as always, was “Food!”

I still have things on my mind as of writing today’s Fun (hey, at least it’s on time!), specifically, this week’s Indie, Idol and Infamous Tour. Yup, I’m gonna try and inevitably fail to score some dirt on the latest batch of idols visiting my home country, then cry on the way home after I embarrass myself! But, surely, there must be a way I can embarrass myself ever so slightly less? Perhaps even prepare myself for any other idols I might run into in the future? Or maybe you just want to snark about Homicidols being a terrible website. Hey, it’s your call! Continue reading
