Battling Oshiloss with Hope This the Friday Fun

Phew, lads! I almost had to dump this fun onto the other writers again, what with NECRONOMIDOL’S European tour this week as well as a few personal ups and downs and events and incidents, but insomnia thoughts won out in the end and I’m here! Now, let’s look at last week’s highlights:

Actually, this Fun is actually a little bit inspired by this week’s Necroma-charged antics. It’s the first time I got to see the new lineup in action, and it’s fairly known at this point that newbie Kunogi is the evolved form of Gokigen Teikoku’s Hibiki. Appreciating an idol in one group I love, losing her, seeing her re-emerge in my favourite group and then eventually meeting her in person after all this time? Pretty darn cool! Continue reading

A Friday Fun with No Regrets

Alright, alright, alright, you Yanks had your fun last week, but now it’s time to get back to the norm before an all-new Homicidols revolution takes place.

So, idols change their style all the time, right? Sometimes their old output just wasn’t working, sometimes they just fancy a change and other times everyone leaves at once and they have to suddenly rebrand. It happens. And when it does, it can often be hit-and-miss. Now, let’s not start big old fights about the “Orchestrafication” of BiSH or anything like that, but instead how about we experiment with new looks and styles for our favourite idols, then pray to a divine entity that these terrible results don’t happen for real!

A Friday Fun Pregnant with Potential

So, Montero’s pegnate.

As one might expect with an idol pragnancy, this has brought Zekkyou60 to a bittersweet end. And sometimes, as proven in the past, bittersweet endings can make for great Friday Fun fodder, as we cry through our memes.

This is going to be all about the pergenat lady of the hour, as we collectively celebrate Montero’s incoming fetus and predict what a party for a pregonate titan as herself would be like. Oh, and all your oshis are invited to the fake baby shower. 

Yeah, this is probably gonna enter weird territory.

This week’s hashtag is #AltIdolBabyShower. And to think, I didn’t even get the opportunity to use “pregananant” in this post.

*Alternatively you could imagine your own oshi is prefnat if you want this to get into super-weird territory.

Psst, well done last week!

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

Withdrawn Wednesday #7

Just a word of warning, this week’s Withdrawn Wednesday is very BiS heavy. To the point where there’s not much else. I’d say “Let’s call this a BiS special” but I wouldn’t be surprised if future installments had lots of BiS either. What can I say, there’s a lot of ex-BiS members. How to counter this? Send me what your non-BiS oshis have been up to for the next WW, of course! I’m not an all-seeing entity, after all, I need a bit of help!

But, anyway, onward.

Your Lost Oshi: Where Are They Now?

Uh, whatever works for you, Yuzuko

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
