It’s Friday, So We May as Well Enjoy More STARMARIE

I swear it, while I may occasionally look in on STARMARIE’s YouTube channel to see if/when/what they have in terms of new stuff (it’s often a lot!), I don’t deliberately have this thing for them on Friday or over the weekend; things just kind of work out that way.

In this case, just kind of building on the last (and recent) bit of video, this is “Galaxies visible from the rooftop”:

What the Crap, You Guys? Marbles Broke Up

You all should just be thankful that I walked myself back from a “lost your Marbles” pun

This is dumb, bad news, you guys. Remember Marbles? Remember how it was like “oh neat, hardstyle idols, one of a kind!” and there was much praise? Well, on that original post, this happened:

Prophetic! Continue reading

Bonus Thursday Hurtsday: Live Wagamama Rakia!

Who else out there remembers Wagamama Rakia? I do, because I was momentarily significantly excited about them last year, only to be just as let down as always.

Why can’t idols always be exactly what I want them to be?!

At any rate, Pure Idol Heart had brought them up the other day, and then Viz Major was sharing this on Facebook and I felt like, yeah, sure, let’s have a look in: Continue reading

I’m Bringing in Ska Idols for Indie Idol Wednesday

By some odd stroke of luck, I wound up with a plethora of stuff that would be good for Indie Idol Wednesday, you guys, but I felt like I was going to wind up treading a little too closely to familiar territory, so I wracked all 19 remaining brain cells to think of somebody to visit who might be off the beaten path, and then I remembered …

The Ska Idol Project! Neither Like,Hate,Love nor her sisters in Snowdrop did very well in the Corenament, but such is the story for a great many things. It’s nice to see, though, that they’re still staying busy and getting onto various festival stages in addition to the usual club scene:

Who’s in the Mood for NECRONOMIDOL Live?

From what I’ve seen across the idolverse in the last week and change, a bunch of folks were either just in Tokyo or are about to be in Tokyo, and they’re talking about their idol experience — saw so-and-so, got a great cheki, bought this merch stuff. And a bunch of people saw Necroma! Which, we’re very lucky that you made it home!

I doubt very many of them were at this show over the weekend, but maybe they can tell us about it from when they were at a show; if you’ve puzzled at all over the live performance of “ITHAQUA” since its triumphant appearance in our lives a little while back, this is for you:

It’s a Bonus WTF Because I Miss PiGU

No, no, PiGU isn’t going anywhere — from what their Twitter feed looks like, they’re still doing auditions. It’s been a little while since Rino’s graduation, which I failed to get anything together for because reasons, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love Osaka’s resident cosplay cafe pop punk idols (and supporters of the Best of 2016!).

I have been sort of hovering over their Twitter lately in the hopes of spying something new; yes, you could argue that “live video of the trio members” would count, but they’re still doing the familiar songs and I was hoping for a chance to do something a little more unique. Fortunately, they delivered!

I Might Be Wrong, But This Was All the WTF I Could Handle for Tuesday

Hey team! So there’s plenty of “normal” stuff (that is, music videos etc.) today, or as normal as it gets for this whole business, but … you know how idols can get kind of creative in how and when they screw around, and how that tends to wind up on video, which then winds up on Twitter, when then winds up burning itself into the ancient reptilian part of your brain, which is probably exactly what they intended?

So Yannderu Ame, among the latest in sick-plus-disturbed-plus-crying idols, recently had themselves a little moment like that, I think. I say “I think” because what looks to me like a moment out of Ringu could simply be how they start the day, or part of a more elaborate bit of play-acting, I don’t know, don’t judge me.

Mistress Has Very Loud Video, Too

So on top of all of that other stuff from yesterday, including and especially that of it that trickled over into today (coming right up!), we have this grinding little corker from mistress:

I don’t know what “Disturbing the Real” is meant to mean, or I guess what is meant by “the Real,” but you know what? It doesn’t matter! Continue reading

Did You Want to See MIGMA SHELTER Live?

Of course you did! And good thing xaneg was on the case, or the original embed would’ve still not been working, and you wouldn’t have seen anything!

This of course is the new project being led by former Bellring Girls Heart (now There There Theres) member Kanra, now known as Yoneko; MIGMA SHELTER has been all appearance and event so far, not yet a live act that we could appreciate.

What Happens When the Nicest Idols Meet the Creepiest Ones?

I’m beginning to take an interest in the Hello! Project. So sue me. No, I’m not going to let Kerrie corrupt my fragile homicidol mind; instead, I’m going to embrace every tradol’s foray into the world of darkness, and I’m going to celebrate it for all of its awkward and/or noisy goodness.

Please do forgive me for not citing my source on this one, as I can’t remember where it came from, but: Have you ever wondered what would happen if Morning Musume were to be counseled by the likes of Pikarin?
