Every year, enduring songs emerge that collectively define the summer months. They are the infectious tunes that serve as the backing music for the few brief months between school years, or the soundtrack of unforgettable vacations. Summer is often a transitional time of new experiences and transformation. The accompanying music will later inspire nostalgia for a specific point in time when everything changed.
On the verge of an unprecedented summer time, more than ever, we have no idea what the season may bring. Team Homicidols is here to help eliminate the uncertainty in one area at least: filling out your summer playlist.
Homicidols Nominations for Song of the Summer, 2020
Boys Be Anarchy, Nani’n’Nerun?
Nominated by: Papermaiden Continue reading
If you’ve been keeping up with the news, both regular and idol, you’ll probably know that Abe Shinzo issued a countrywide order temporarily banning all large scale public entertainment events because of Novel Coronavirus fears. ZOC cancelled their entire FINAL INNOCENT ZOC tour, Aya Eightprince cancelled a smaller public appearance and Pour Lui cancelled the shooting for her upcoming idol group’s music video to name a few. Things have been cancelled harder than a celebrity who’s angered a kpop fanbase.
Currently, WACK are meant to be embarking on their nationwide WACK FUCKiN’ PARTY tour but alas even Watanabe Junnosuke who has objectively more clout than the prime minister can’t get around a ban on public events.
Just kidding, yes he FUCKiN can!
This Saturday at 6pm JST, the show will go on! NO AUDiENCE LiVE is exactly what it sounds like – nobody is going to be there. You can’t cancel a public event that isn’t a public event. The entire thing is going to be broadcast on Niconico so everyone will be able to be there in spirit. A premium subscription is only around $5USD too, so hey, if you’re spending your time indoors as a health precaution why not spend it with the idol fanbase’s favourite women’s prison colony?
It’s been a rough week for a lot of people on Earth because of the you-know-what, but in a dire time things like entertainment are what make it manageable! So, cast aside your worry, wash your damn hands regularly and enjoy your time at home.
And if you’re in need of a little something extra, BiSH and EMPiRE made a few previously limited broadcasts available on their YouTube channels as a sorry for cancelled shows too.
Remember, while this is a lot of fun content for us overseas, fundamentally it’s a sorry to people living in a country that’s tightening it’s grip attempting to deal with a pandemic, so remember to be respectful! Or if you’re living in a country that’s going through the same thing do what you want, we’re not the reaction police over here.
Our apologies to AKB fans, women and anybody with any kind of common sense – that man Kuro-chan is unfortunately relevant again.
Remember the hot new unit from WACK who became so popular overnight they gained upwards of 1.5 million views a day? They debuted on a segment on the most popular prime time TV show in the entire country? They had an extremely successful “vote with your wallet” sales campaign? Those MAMESHiBA NO TAiGUN girls! They’re back with not one but TWO new songs and of course, a campaign to go with it:
We here at Homicidols Dot Com are pleased to continue our tradition of supporting excellent Twitter handles by welcoming another new voice to the Team; say hello to Cal!
Today’s been an interesting day for idol survival shows hasn’t it? The mainstream Produce series has been given the axe and the “also mainstream but the music has guitars” show MONSTER IDOL finally ended, birthing a new breed of WACK girls.
Please welcome to the world’s stage: MAMESHiBA NO TAiGUN!
