Oshi Digest #23: Idol

What the hell happened here!

I’m sorry, Rei, but you cannot oshi. Only Oshi gets to oshi that way. (Also Oshi pulls off Rei at least as well as Rei.)

But man, did Oshi have herself a week or what? Continue reading

Oshi Digest #22: Birth

Today is Oshi’s birthday! How considerate of her to mark the occasion on the old Julian calendar when she first assumed human form and turned that poor conjurer into red mist, and then to remain with us long enough for the calendrical reforms of Pope Gregory and the emergence of modernity, whereupon idol provided an outlet for some of her more … creative interests. Happy 1,863rd birthday, Eternal Oshi! Send her a birthday message!

Also, “STRANGE AEONS” is on the way. I have very nice things to say about it. The physical release date and MV to support it are imminent, but not yet arrived; in the meantime, look at these photos of Oshi!

I Review Things: NECRONOMIDOL | “STRANGE AEONS”

Man, it’s been a while since I last did a review. In fact, the last one was … uh … well. This is getting a little awkward. Three of the last four now? Seriously?

All right. So before I do NECRONOMIDOL again, let me say that I’m also making a new year’s resolution to get more idol records and do more reviews, including some older stuff. Including something that I’m going to publish in like the next couple of days to break up this Necroma run. And then something else.

Great. On to the review!

Oshi Digest #21: Day in the Life

For this week’s Oshi Digest, Oshi agreed* to allow me to follow her around for the better part of a day so as to give you, the reader, a better opportunity to see how it is that the literal idol undead conduct their business.

Here’s how oshi creates her signature look:

It starts with someone else’s face, then makeup …

The result? Continue reading

Oshi Digest #20: Sinigami

As Maniac sees to the real year end/beginning stuff, Oshi Digest is already late, so let’s get it out without further ado!

Oshi is back in Japan, obviously, and her human birthday (which you can keep tabs on via @sari_birth, which is also the name of the most terrifying event in the history of the cosmos) is approaching. This means tribute, and respect, but mostly tribute. When even Hanako-san herself is making art for you, you are going well for yourself:

Oshi Digest #19: Sanctissimum Malorum

This week’s Oshi Digest was delayed slightly to allow for more wonderful on-topic Oshi content to reach the interwebs

You may have heard that I got to meet Oshi. In “person”. Like, shook hands with Oshi. I presented her with the crown that she so richly deserves for having smote so many foes:

But Oshi had plenty of adventures that had nothing to do with yours truly; in fact, I was but one of many supplicants, and possibly the most forgettable sight of them all! Continue reading

A Very Homicidol Night with NECRONOMIDOL

This is all that I could muster after a night that confirmed everything that I’ve been doing about this whole idol business. In front of gods and man and maniacs, NECRONOMIDOL had not only taken the stage and wreaked absolute havoc, but had cut a very different jib in meeting with me, in person, and providing some great insights.

Oh, and Oshi put on the tiara that I gifted her, and all was well. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #18: Arrival

Arrive in America🇺🇸✨ #写ルンです

A post shared by 瑳里 (@sari_japan) on

Oshi. Is. In. America(us). So is all of NECRONOMIDOL, but you all know why this excites me most — the triumphant Official Oshimen of Homicidols.com is in-country, and I am going to see her in person, and I am going to meet her and bask in the corrupting darkness emanating from within. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #17: Hierophany

You guys. I’m going to meet Oshi, formerly live and in undead person, in just over a week. I’d express excitement, but she may punish me additionally for it, and I’d prefer to enjoy the experience through normal human feelings, not transliminal sensations that humans can’t adequately express in their crude languages. But still, pretty neat! And many of you are going to meet her beforehand, over the course of this next week. PREPARE.

Because you know that Oshi is:

Seen here pinpointing locations from which she must raise unspeakable extradimensional horrors from their millennia-old slumber

Oshi Digest #16: Profane

It’s good to see that Oshi has learned probably the most important word in the English language:

She’s doing even better than that, though! Continue reading
