Yet Another Friday Fun of Wild Speculation and Sure-fire Disappointment

As predicted, last week’s Friday Fun backfired horribly!

You know what else will probably backfire in horrible ways? This week’s upcoming WACK audition! Continue reading

In No Way Will This Friday Fun Backfire Spectacularly

These are some beauties right there!

This week’s fun is brought to you by Brexit!

Yes! Brexit!

Let’s not go too into depth about the chaos that’s engulfing my very own country right now. Actually, let’s, because that’s the theme of this week’s Fun! Continue reading

Withdrawn Wednesday #3

I was worried about whether we’d have enough content for this edition of Withdrawn Wednesday in time, to be quite honest. Let’s face it, writing a column on graduated idols can be a difficult task when 90% of graduations result in us getting very little in the way of content. But by gum did Team Homicidols dig and dig this week! We actually have a couple of things to share!

Remember, if you have news on a graduated oshi, or even just a Twitter or Instagram account, let us know before this just turns into the 2017-2018 oshi digest all over again.

Your Graduated Oshi: Where Are They Now?

While Team Homicidols was in church on Sunday, we missed Non‘s (former Deep Girl; former Candye Syrup) announcement that she is returning to idol as a soloist on June 26th.

Every Aesthete’s Favorite Friday Fun

For something I scrambled together last-minute, last week’s Fun had a lot of traffic!

So no doubt you’ve seen the latest Banamon controversy by now.

We Interview Idols: YONEKO

In this current early 2019 period of disbandments, graduations and letdowns, a favourite from all the way since the birth of Homicidols has instead gone down an opposite route. Herself being a victim of the “start of the year curse” just last year, Yoneko has been buckling down hard to make sure there’s at least one idol providing consistent positivity through the tides of bad news from other performers. In just three months, Yoneko has graced us with a digital single, three CD-Rs, a fantastic collaboration with FEATURES and three music videos.

Most recently, she has been making a passionate effort to reach out to her fans outside of Japan, turning her into a beloved figure amongst the western idol fandom almost overnight.

She’s even going through the trouble of setting up a Bandcamp for overseas fans, despite the burden being so tedious it led her to drop a curse word or two!

As she welcomed her overseas fandom with open arms, Yoneko expressed her interest in being interviewed by foreign blogs. And, well, as a foreign blog that has followed her career since 2016, how could we not take such an opportunity? And so, via a few email exchanges, Yoneko was more than happy to answer some of our questions. Continue reading

This Week’s Fun Is Animal Crackers

Did you realise it was Friday already? I sure didn’t! I thought it was Thursday! I’m panic-writing this!

Hahahahaha, last week!

 

Have you seen photos of Rinahamu and her dog?

She literally owns herself in animal form! It’s as weird as it is cute!

Which got me thinking, what other animals are dead ringers for our favourite idols? I’ve seen comparison photos before, but I’m in a bit of a rush, you see.

So, this week, take a photo of an idol, and take a photo of a similar-looking animal, and boom! Hashtag is #AnimalsThatLookLikeIdols.

I’m going to run off a list of other things I forgot now!

Taking Inappropriate to New Heights with the Friday Fun

That’s right, it’s Friday again! How are you all doing after last week’s Fyredol Festival?

This is exactly why Homicidols.com will never have its own music festival, just so you know.

The other day, I was browsing SoraNews 24 and saw something that reminded me of my new favourite subjects of mockery, THE BANANA MONKEYS, that surprisingly wasn’t SoraNew’s actual article about THE BANANA MONKEYS.

Raise your hands; who else saw this and thought “If Banamon somehow became big enough to start getting brand deals while still keeping their apparent concept of cringe, this is exactly the kind of thing they’d advertise” and then die a little inside because seeing anything related to Banamon just sort of does that to you?

Fraud. Failure. Violence? The Friday Fun.

I don’t know why I even bother writing the Funs anymore because clearly they turn out better when I dump it onto one of the other writers!

I genuinely want to read some of these (no Salem, your erotic Watanabe fic isn’t one of them)

Did I already do a festival-themed fun? Oh, I did? It was one of the very first Funs? Well…

How a Branding Exercise Became a Friday Fun: Electric Boogaloo

‘Hooooo boy I’m getting these oshi graduation announcements weekly now!

Thank goodness we still have Yura.

I’ll be real with you guys, this Fun was kind of done last-minute. Personal life sometimes gets in the way, you know?

Well, thank goodness our own Daemon exists and threw out this idea for a last-minute fun! Continue reading

Revisiting a Friday Fun Phenomenon

How’s it going everyone? Same old? Sure has been for me at least, because (excluding the ones that were announced last year) I just got my first major oshi graduation announcement of 2019! Whoo-hoo?

Speaking of oshis however, you know who hasn’t graduated yet? Former Guso-now-Burst YuraPico, that’s who! In addition, her birthday just happens to be coming up this Sunday! And once again, her birthday event is named #YuraSmile of all things. Continue reading
