You’ll Find Yourself Tuning in; Blame Nobody But Yourself

Just in case you missed it, there’s a new podcast on the block. No, your friendly neighborhood Maniac had naught to do with it, but scene regulars put together a program and talked through some recent material in the wider world of alt-idol (using their occasionally hilarious accents to boot!).

Give it a watch, or check out Garry for some reflections from one of the organizer/participants:

Get Your Con On: Daemon’s Back with the Kawaii Underground

If you folks remember the halcyon, more innocent time of, your friend and mine Daemon hosted a kawaii metal panel at Con Nichiwa in Tucson. That was almost a year ago! And now:

Love. Continue reading


There Are Few Trainwrecks This Compelling

I was having some DM chatter with friends the other day, as one will, and it was shared that a project between community leaders was coming together, and that it would be wise to keep an eye out. Well, friends, that day is before us:

Or, specifically, today at 3:30 p.m. EST, 8:30 p.m. GMT or (my favorite part) tomorrow at 5:30 a.m. in Japan! Continue reading


Your Homicidols Weekender #16

I like when there’s so much going on that not even the Weekender can capture it all. You guys, this was a good week. We need more random idol stuff and new music and new video and all of that twice over again.

So What Happened?

Ex-BRGHer Ayano released some details about her solo project, including its debut:

The remnant of BRGH that is There There Theres keeps making announcements for things that are good for them but do nothing to improve my life, and I’m what really matters:

This Friday Fun Is Virtual Insanity

Previously on Friday Funday: Last week was #Deathless4Necroma, which was a lot of fun and we even got noticed and promoted by Ricky himself! Thanks dude! And thanks to everyone who took part.

The week before that, you came up with some wonderful #UpcomingAltIdolEvents that will never be added to the Homicidol calendar but we all got a few laughs out of it, and that’s all that matters, right?

[Maniac: Twitter’s doing that thing where it eats feeds again; just go here to look at the fun stuff]

I really, really want that Koutei Camera Gull album.

This week’s hashtag is similar, but more specific. The context is the Up Up Girls VR app; laughing at Saki’s drunk face was plenty enough entertainment for me, but VR is what all the cool kids are into these days it seems, so I’m sure kissing members of UUG isn’t going to be the last foray into this space-age technology that I remember from the 90s that we’re going to see from idols. So let’s predict the next ones! Continue reading


Your Homicidols Weekender #15

What a crazy-ass week! Just about everything that could have happened did, and we got to cap it off with the majestic effort that was #Deathless4Necroma — you guys really are great.

What Else Happened, Maniac?

To build off of that Ayukuma video from Saturday, Phillter sent over this older video of them engaged in a Japanese game show kind of amusement part visit:

Maki is alpha kuma

Weirdos. Continue reading


Inside the Homicidol Mind: Ano’s Harrowing Life

I was the recipient of a little poke the other night (the friendly kind, not the I’m-trying-to-bust-through-your-rib-cartilage-and-puncture-your-lung kind), and it was our old pal Kayseur with a newly translated IDOL AND READ interview from issue 007, this one featuring none other than one of idol’s more interesting personalities:

This is gonna be good. Continue reading


Your Homicidols Weekender #14

My favorite teaser of the week was this one from You’ll Melt More’s Loneliness and Counterattack EP. Nobody does it better.

Please be from the “loneliness” part of the title …

You Clowns Inspired This Friday Fun by Being Clowns

Hi everyone! It’s Kerrie, speaking from the past! How spooky. Is future Kerrie still as sleepy as past Kerrie is? How will I know, I’m writing this about a week in advance. But before I go into any further rambling caused by 2 nights without sleep, let’s have a look at last week’s party. I asked you all to come up with potential idol movies. I can’t wait until some idol big-wig sees this and goes “hmmm, let’s fund this” when they saw their group.

This week’s party is one I’ve been holding back on for a while now due to different circumstances –cough- The Watanabe Trilogy –cough- but I figured to get this out of the way before I forget or before yet another idol hell approaches –cough-Watanabe-cough-Trilogy-cough- and it’s all related to our event calendar.

Remember that? I keep updating it whenever I can, so consider this event to also be a reminder to continue submitting any release dates or important events in idol fandom, because I’m only one person and I can very easily overlook something I didn’t spot before.

Also, some cheeky has been submitting fakey releases to us: Continue reading


Did You Know That First Summer Uika Was a Movie Star?

In a manner of speaking, of course!

So the other day, I noticed a fresh post in the forums; given that most of what happens there is random Polish-language stuff, I just kind of ignored it … but then there was a reply, and things got interesting.

Go have a look at the request, for a film called Moonquake, asking where to find this piece that featured none other than former BiS and current Billie Idle and forever obsession of renegade idol First Summer Uika. Char T Saki found it!

Let’s have a look. Continue reading
