You Don’t Really Need to Understand the Friday Fun

‘Sup everyone! How’s your week been? Have you too been watching the WACK audition all week, booing Watanabe every time he shows up on screen, wondering if any of the following actually happens?

Stupid popular hashtags!

We don’t talk about Tapestok enough on this site, do we? I love them. Koutei Camera Actress’ new record is great; right up until their disbandment (and beyond) Zwei were the soundtrack to all late-night insomnia pondering. And they’ve also blessed us with such great song and album titles as “Humpty Taxi”, “Wedge Sole Eskimo”, “Leningrad Loud Girlz” and whatever the hell this is supposed to mean: Continue reading

Nothing Is Impossible with the Friday Fun

Oh man.

Now, here I was this weekend, thinking “Man, it’s still crazy how Pour Lui is graduating and Saki and Aya are swapping back on the same day. There’s got to be a plot twist that’ll be revealed that day, right? Maybe Puu was kidding, or she would announce she’s graduating to take over Watanabe’s position, maybe there will be more shuffles, or Gang Parade and BiS have to fight over who gets to keep their traded member” but nope! You were right. Nothing happened. Puu graduated, Aya and Saki are back in their respective groups, and I’m emo. Thanks WACK!

So maybe pushing another WACK fun is too soon, but the name of the next BiS tour brought in so many opportunities. Thanks Christian for the tip!

Does any of us know what will happen? I sure don’t! Continue reading

Pull No Punches with This Friday Fun

I’m sorry? I can’t hear you over the sound of my own screaming in anticipation of the biggest party in the UK.

Well, that’s one thing I’m definitely looking forward to, but you know what I’m not looking forward to? Continue reading

The Friday Fun You Can’t Afford to Ignore

Good day everyone! I’m sorry I totally forgot about #IdolValentines and so Maniac had to do it! Well, too late now. Here’s what should have been #IdolValentines last week:

Speaking of me and screw-ups, I had a bit of a mind-jumble last week on Twitter, when it was suggested to do a clickbait-inspired Friday Fun, but I could have sworn we already did that! And yet, when I looked it up, there was no record of it!

Pictured, me

Well, now I’m baffled. Continue reading

The Friday Fun, Guest-starring Your Favorite Idols!

So, Kamen Joshi, huh?

Sorry, that’s all the intro I had. Honestly, that’s all the words I could come up with. In fact, I was struggling for a whole new Friday Fun, but what else is new? (Seriously, if you have any suggestions, feel welcome to tweet me at @weeaboowitch, it’ll be a big help!)

But I was browsing through Netflix sitcoms after finally finishing Friends for the 70th time, and I remembered, “wasn’t there that J-Pop boyband that inexplicably turned up on Fuller House?”


Celebrities showing up on TV shows is nothing out of the ordinary. But a Japanese act showing up on an American sitcom is a rarity for sure. So let’s come up with scenarios for future idols to cameo on TV! Continue reading

A Friday Fun Like Krusty the Clown Would Do

Wow, that time again! Not for me, I’m writing this on a Sunday morning, but for you guys!

What about last week’s Fun, then? And as of writing not a single Watanabe replacement joke! Well done, I know it was an easy opportunity but you restrained yourselves! I restrained myself! Until now. Oh.

Not to toot my own horn, but remember a few months back we had that #2018IdolPredictions Fun? Well, turns out one of my own predictions is already on its way to becoming a reality: Continue reading

Friday Fun: You’ll Never Replace the Time You Waste Replacing Idols

So about those photobooks. Not gonna lie, I’d probably buy some of them. Especially that sexy Watanabe one, oh baby.

So here I am, trying to think of a new Friday Fun that doesn’t involve coming up with predictions and conspiracies involving WACK Fes, because let’s be honest, you’re all sick of that, when I remembered that I’ve really gotten into Gokigen Teikoku lately. I mean, I was a casual fan the past year or so, but this month I’ve really gotten into them. Indies Best is one heck of an album!

And that, in turn, made me remember this thrilling saga of Ichiho going on sick leave and being replaced by a blow-up sex doll, only for it to face a violent and tragic demise.

For some reason, I thought, “that should happen more often!” Continue reading

Celebrate What Least You’d Want to See in the Friday Fun

I want to give yet another formal apology on behalf of Homicidols. Two weeks ago I did a graduation-themed Friday Fun, only to accidentally trigger Pour Lui to announce her own graduation, cementing me as the cursed wota, so last week to make up for it, I tried to make a Friday Fun based on our hopes and dreams so that maybe, just maybe, we’ll get something good from idol for a change. And nothing happened! So once again, sorry I only ever jinx the worst part of idol, but for now why not browse over what you all wanted last week?

Let’s talk about photobooks for a second. About 90 percent of the time, its usually the same-old same-old; pics of your faves posing in bikinis, maybe doing other irrelevant things, because lets face it, you just came for the bikini-clad girls, admit it. Then every now and then, we’ll get a photobook with an actual concept. I mean sure, there’s usually still bikinis involved, but its themed bikinis! Continue reading

This Friday Fun Will Make It All Better

First of all, I’d like to issue a formal apology on behalf of us here at Homicidols (but mainly me); when I originally started last week’s #WorstReasonsToGraduate fun, it was mostly to air my grievances with the fact that my Hello! Project oshi (and to a lesser extent my AqbiRec oshi) was leaving us. Little did I know that by doing so, I unintentionally cursed BiS and now Pour Lui is jumping ship and … look, I need a sit-down. It’s only a week into 2018 and I’m already losing three of my oshis. 2018 already sucks. Sorry for making the queen of WACK graduate.

Ugh. This week’s summary is going to be bittersweet.

So if I’m capable of bringing such a curse, I can at least use my power for something good, right? Please? I hope I can bring some positive changes to idol for once.

So this week’s hashtag is #Change1ThingImproveAnIdol.

What one thing could that be? Well, it’s all up to you. Could be a name, could be a member, could be the girls of Negicco actually becoming part-onion, you decide what one positive change you’d make! And maybe next week, instead of a tragic graduation announcement, we’ll get the news that CoCoCo is back in Tsurezure. Fingers crossed guys!

(Oh, and by the way, don’t think I missed that sweet #YuraSmile namedrop at the BURST GIRLS debut. I was practically bouncing in my seat when that happened!)

Ha-has in the Heartbreak for This Week’s Friday Fun

Oh no! I thought it was much earlier in the week than it actually was and now I’ve got to pull something out of thin air! Or, I could be lazy and let #2018IdolPredictions go on another week, but is that cheap? But last week’s predictions were really really good!

Now, let’s see… what recent events in idol have been on my mind that I can exploit for a weekend hashtag?

If you follow me on Twitter, then you’re likely aware of the latest idol loss that has gotten me freaking out even more than the SiScourse, even more than Guso Drop ruining Splatoon 2 release day; My Hello! Project kamioshi, ANGERME space queen Aikawa Maho, who previously cameoed in past Homicidols articles, has officially graduated after a year of being on sick leave for panic disorder. I am not okay. How can I make this fun?

Let’s come up with stupid reasons for an idol to graduate or disband! Continue reading
