As predicted, last week’s Friday Fun backfired horribly!
Dotstokyo has announced that their disbandment later this month is tied to the global climate protests. When global action has been taken, the dot-chans will reportedly return to performing. Even idols hate global warming… #CurrentEventsAsIdolNews
“BiS in yellow vests to protest Watanabe’s latest decisions on the members as well as what they describe as “bullying against Aya”. Tags have been found in Zepp Tokyo saying “YUiNA belongs to EMPiRE” This national crisis has been going on for 18weeks”#CurrentEventsAsIdolNews
I was worried about whether we’d have enough content for this edition of Withdrawn Wednesday in time, to be quite honest.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.
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.

In the sequel #FyredolFes 2 the evil developers manage to shut down the following years festival by bribing the local authorities. HM has to become a professional skateboarder & win the first prize of a local skateboarding competition after multiple musical training montages.

Yui loss, day 110. The sun staggers slightly behind, like the bands of time are worn and stretched like an old cassette tape. my horse dies silently.still,I follow this path, where eating, sleep, warmth are all abstract concerns, like watching an old movie.#IdolFanFicMadness
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?
Idol fans: chained in the cave and only staring at the shadows of oshi on the wall. The more glow sticks you hold, the clearer the shadows. But you never see the real oshi. Idols: enlightened(尊い).#MakeIdolDeep
Idol doesn’t exist. Songs you hear, performers you are seeing are manifestations of your desires for social acceptance. A perfect world that exists within your mind. When you think you are speaking to an idol in person you’re really talking to yourself in the mirror#MakeIdolDeep
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 →
