The Corenament Championship Affair

EXT. SAN ANTONIO – NIGHT

Thousands of idol fans crowd the streets, chanting MIX to nothing in particular, jubilant in having taken part in such a spectacle as the 2018 Homicidols Corenament final

LOCAL NEWSCASTER: As you can see, it’s absolute pandemonium here outside the Alamodome. People are still having a hard time believing that Minna no Kodomo-chan did what should have been impossible in riding the Loser’s Bracket all the way to back-to-back thrashings of trendy pick Kaqriyo Terror Architect. It’s quite a sight!

VIZ MAJOR: I TOLD YOU PEOPLE! I TOLD YOU! NUMBER ONE!

INT. ALAMODOME – COURT – CONTINUOUS

Fans, staff and parents are gathered around HONO, CINNAMON and PRODUCER-SAN, and surrounding all of them are REPORTERS and PHOTOGRAPHERS. Producer-san is wearing a BASKETBALL NET around his neck

PRODUCER-SAN: The important thing was that we never said never. We believed in ourselves and refused to quit. We never said die out there, and we worked together as a team, and we definitely made sure that we did it for the fans, because our fans are the best fans in the world.

HONO: I still don’t know what happened! Continue reading

At Last, Corenament Clarity and a Path to the Championship

Did you think I was kidding when I said that yesterday’s Final Four action was going to be brutal? Fans of BiSH and Kaqriyo Terror Architect got into some kind of vote war (well over 200 in the span of a few hours), with the Codomomental upstart coming out on top and guaranteeing themselves a place in the final; and, with the very thorough support of management, Minna no Kodomo-chan absolutely wiped the floor with Hanako-san, who frankly didn’t seem all that interested:

Of course, she shortly thereafter followed that message with:

Well, Hanako-san, if you don’t want to be part of the game — even though you’re technically still alive! — it certainly makes things easier to have you out. Godspeed Good luck! I’d hate for this to all be some sort of convenient ruse!

That does leave us with one final match to see who needs to be in the final against Kakuriyo, though. Continue reading

The Corenament’s Revised Final Four: Slaughter

Finally, finally you guys, we are on the precipice of crowning a Corenament champion — the champion of idol in a very narrowly defined way! — after three increasingly stupid weeks and complicated set-ups and challenges and three of our entrants haven’t even taken a loss yet, how is this possible.

Yesterday! The results did manage to come in such that I hopefully don’t need to get extra cute in making this work over the weekend, which I’d just as soon not really do, as I’d like to be crowning a champion and not, you know, coming up with convoluted schemes. In fact, yesterday’s results were an absolute bloodbath: Poor Zekkyou, who’d held on for ever so long, finally took their second L and are out, slain at the hands of a highly vengeful (nice job, Rain!) Hanako-sn; Minna no Kodomo-chan didn’t need the late life that they got from their fans (not-sarcastically nice job, Kodomocafe!) to tear poor Saki to pieces. And because I’d promised that I’d re-award the unused Money in the Bank briefcase to either of 2& or Hanako-san if they lost yesterday — Saki, come claim your prize.*

Now we have a Final Four. Two undefeateds will face off, while the irrepressible Hanako-san will fight for her life against Hono and Cinnamon. Continue reading

Hanako-san, Please

Nobody, least of all the poor saps featured in the video below, is prepared for what Hanako-san (precisely, the 14th Generation Hanako of the Toilet!) is about to unleash upon the world.

Hanako-san Is the Demon We Never Knew We Always Needed

It’s been so long since we last got some new material from the unofficial mascot of Homicidols.com that I was starting to think that she wasn’t ever going to give us fresh music, but the gods smiled upon us this day.

I’ll warn you, when you see the title, your brain may immediately go to Babymetal, and you may be expecting a power metal romantic epic that takes you on an emotional journey about swords and moons and stuff. In fact, I recommend that you set your expectations in precisely that direction before you hit play on this puppy:

Let’s Talk About “Art-Idols”

One of the more enjoyable and exciting things in the bold new world of non-traditional idols is the continuing openness of personal self-expression nurtured into the performers. While there’s always been a creative streak within the scene even in it’s more “commercial” days, I really started to take notice of this new emergence of experimentation with the debut of Maison book girl in 2014…

Those first press photos of Koshouji Megumi’s post-BiS group, with their modernist fashion style and aesthetic, seized my attention immediately, and I’ve never gotten that impression out of my mind since. With MBG and other bold new groups taking the stage, the “alt” prefix started being applied to this emerging trend, but to me, I saw their efforts as being more about personal expression and a desire to take idol from a product market into high art. To this day, I refer to Maison book girl as an art project, and their genre as being “Art-Idol.”  Continue reading

I Am Such a Stan for Hanako-san

Well, guys, you all missed your chance to get a weekly feature out of the pure wicked nihilism that is toilet ghost idol Hanako-san, but that doesn’t mean that her chaotic, idol-worshipped live shows and incredibly loud music aren’t nonetheless amazing and worthy of being held up.

As you know, video of Hanako-san doing her thing, or rips of her recorded tracks, are difficult to find online except for in little snippets on Twitter, usually consisting of -0 quality and/or mostly a bunch of food-related splatter porn, so actual official clips are worth their metaphorical weight in gold.

This Thursday Hurtsday Is Dedicated to Hanako-san

Everything is a mess! I wanted to do something special-like for this Thursday Hurtsday, and I was sitting there wondering, should I just talk about how fate is cruel and A-to-J has an extra media pass for the Anime Matsuri event in Houston and I logistically can’t take part … but naw, this ain’t about me, it’s about the idols, and who really sums up Thursday Hurtsday better than Hanako-san?

This was posted yesterday, luckily. You know those stories about the audience being pelted and covered with all manner of foulness? Continue reading

It’s a WTF Tuesday Double Feature: Hanako-san vs. Heart ni Pochicon

These photos from the other night were just too good to not share.

As you know, because you’re a fan of hers, which I know because you’re here and I do believe that being at the very least amused by the toilet dead girl is a prerequisite for that, Hanako-san’s lives have a tendency to devolve from mere “throw and spray things at the fans” to full-on “I am going to cover you in substances because I feel like it.”

In this case, she shared a stage with the wonderful trash idol project, Heart ni Pochicon (currently again down my favorite disaster, Hiiragi Fuyu), and WHAT HAPPENED NEXT WILL SHOCK YOU! Continue reading

Friday Funday: Hanako-san’s Complete Lack of Impulse Control

Kerrie time! She’s on a roll lately. Hit up her Redbubble store and buy yourself something nice.

Hi everyone! Hope the week was good for you. You may have noticed that things have been changing at Homicidols.com. Maniac is organizing a bunch of different fun things over the week. I even suggested some things too! But where that will go, well, I need to pester him some more.

[Maniac: By the time this published, I’d sent her something! I swear it!]

Luckily (or unluckily depending on your viewpoint), your Homicidols Party Planner Kerrie is still here to announce the community weekend events! Last week’s party, I invited you to imagine an idol festival especially for those retired/disbanded idols/MIA we still miss. It was either going to be the most exciting or most depressing imaginary event ever! Lets look at some of our highlights of #DeadIdolFestival:


This week, we’re going back to the original image-based format these Friday parties started at. It’s not quite a gif party though (unless you’re really good at editing gifs), more a Photoshop party. A Photoshop party based around beloved toilet demon and unofficial Homicidols mascot Hanako-san.

This was the original tweet that inspired this week’s party. Maniac actually mentioned old plans of a Hanako-san party before, but it kept being pushed aside. Well, this is the exact Friday Party he was referring to! Took long enough.

[Maniac: Rude.]

This is definitely a venting party. Don’t like something? Never fear! Hanako-san will destroy it!

You can use any photo/video footage of the toilet ghost’s many violent outbursts, but if you’d rather not fuss about, I made a handy little template for you all if you want it. Simply save the below image, and paste your image inside that blank space.
