Next They’ll Be Charging $50 per Ticket to See This Friday Fun on Exhibition

How many of you guys are still weeping? Yup.

I can’t believe we almost went a week without a Friday Fun, lads. Yep, I think seeing Sari’s unwhitened face blew me away so much that I was incapable of rational thought! Then I saw some guys on Facebook arguing over the deeper meaning of Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” and I swore I could see the lightbulb just flashing above my head! Continue reading

Get MELLOW with O’CHAWANZ

The new O’CHAWANZ isn’t loud at all. O’CHAWANZ, in general, aren’t that loud. But I don’t care. They dominated my personal best-of last year and they’re ready to do it again in 2019.

It got me wondering. If EPISODE V was full of hype songs, and MELLOW MADNESS is going to be, well, mellow, would that mean MELLOW MADNESS is the night to EPISODE V’s day?

A Highly Therapeutic Friday Fun

Is it just me, or do these Friday Funs get so much more traffic when Maniac writes them? Could it be, that he’s a better writer than an illiterate fool like yours truly?

Nah. That can’t be it.

Honestly, you people are brilliant

So. First week of January. The week an idol fan always dreads. Never mind the devastating graduations that were already announced beforehand, early January is prime time for sudden and often gutwrenching graduation and disbandment announcements. And ‘hoo boy, did we get a wave of sadness this week.

Never mind the day I’ve been dreading, the departure of our beloved oshi, the day they I purposefully chose to do housework over checking Twitter as often as possible for minimum sadness (more on that later). Kotao’s farewell is not far off, much to SupremeNothing’s matching levels of misery. Then There There Theres Went Went Went, whatever the hell is going on with Hamidasystem happened. Then the Big Angel meme gremlins, Ton and Ran, jetpacked their way back to heaven just a few days after a certain video pretty much doubled the group’s overseas presence overnight. Saeki is Shuuengone (probably to follow in Haruna’s footsteps and joining WACK). Poor poor Nel Nehru. I could go on and on but it hurts.

So, back to housework to distract myself from a heartbreaking Necroma loss. It didn’t work. I’m still sad. But, I was able to distract myself. Instead of crying over Sari and Hina, I was crying because I found the revolting pile of dust and trash that had built up over a year behind Mr. Weeaboo’s computer desk. Much better! I think? Anyway, after having built up a reputation of “all my oshis graduate suddenly and tragically” the past few years, 2018 especially, I’m finally starting to find ways of coping with oshiloss.  Continue reading

Up Up Girls Wrestling Is Completely a Thing, and Awesome

Hey, remember when Up Up Girls added a pro-wrestling division? Then I quietly stopped reporting on them because damn, it’s hard to keep track of all these Up Up Girls now?

Well, Pro-Wrestling finally got their debut MV after what, a year?

The Friday Fun Where It Pays to Know the Future

How was your Christmas (if you celebrate it)? Did you have a fun time? Did you get everything that you wished for last week?

What a month! This is the final Fun of the Holiday Extravaganza, as well as the final Fun of 2018! And you know what that means. Time to bring back an old favourite! But first, let’s look back at some of last year’s predictions. How many #2018IdolPredictions came true? Continue reading

A Friday Fun Straight from the Mind of Richard Curtis

Did you enjoy making cards last week?

Phew! It’s almost the big day. Presents are probably not bought, Christmas baking probably not ready, as far as I know, the Best Of is still dragging. Can you tell that I’ve been writing all of this month’s Funs at once?

Nobody tell Kerrie that Juice=Juice won all of the awards; it’ll be funnier when she finds out for herself

Lessons on the Greatest Gift of All in This Friday Fun

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.

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

A Fun for When You Have That Uneasy Feeling about Something

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:

  1. 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”
  2. It would literally just be me, Salem and Chris spamming the “Necroma eating Greggs” photo and nothing else

So thank goodness that the newly designated “Homicidols Official Target For All Jokes About Heavy Membership Turnovers” have had a hectic couple of weeks, especially this past weekend, bringing in plenty of potential meme fodder in the process. Nothing ever seems predictable about this group, but god damn if that’s going to stop us from trying to predict what’ll happen next! Continue reading

The Hell Is Happening with THE BANANA MONKEYS

Banamon, please, please, I already wrote one baffling piece on you this week, stop fueling me.

Oh, god. At this point all I can really do for introductions to this Hell-group is…

PHEW. Alright. Continue reading
