Alloy Has a Metric Ton of Stuff for You

So Alloy, unofficially officially the successor unit of petit pas! and definitely up to the billing, started themselves a big-ass tour, and, rather than do the obligatory idol thing where you make the big announcement at the end, they decided to front-load the fact that:

Oh neat! New– wait, what? Seven announcements? *clutches pearls* I am amazed and slightly offended! Continue reading

Hell, Why Not More yandoll One-man?

Good morning! Given what all I saw trickling through the interwebs over the past couple of days, I had a feeling that this was going to be a very repeaty kind of day, going back to recently familiar wells, and I was kind of right! They say that you shouldn’t return to the scene of a crime, but they also say that you shouldn’t go swimming for an hour after eating, which is total malarkey, so what do they know, really?

Anyway, it was basically yesterday when we looked at yandoll doing legit one-man activity at their one-man, which was kind of cool and unique (read: “yandoll”), and this is at least some of the rest of the set: Continue reading

Did You Want to See Desu.Rabbits’ One-man?

Of course you did!

I thought I’d take a look at what all Desu.Rabbits were up to after doing that other bunny thing, and wouldn’t you know it, they’ve been slowly releasing tidbits of their first one-man. It’s a live digest, but hell, it’s in four parts, that’s enough video to be many idols’ entire performance month:

Here’s Footage of yandoll Taking ‘One-man’ Very Seriously

Are we ever going to stop with the live video? NOPE. Somehow March and December will happen simultaneously, we’ll do a combined Corenament of the Year contest and still be doing a whole ton of live video because the entire idol industry has apparently decided that this debut season will be kind of lame and very few idols of the homi variety, at least the ones of note, will do anything notable.

Boo.

But this is why live video exists. Idol never does stop, even when it’s lame, and it’s in the live environment that maybe stuff having a look at will still happen, right?

So here’s yandoll, who are cool and not appreciated enough, having a “one-man” with a band that’s definitely not what you saw in their last one-man, and definitely not what you expect when you see that word: Continue reading

Did YAMIAME Just Break up on Stage?

Hold up. I had this whole thing planned for some recent live video from the crying-in-the-rain idols, and just wanted to get a little bit of extra context (like maybe some good stuff from the one-man they had tonight), and boom:

And while I struggled with “wait, dissolving it all now and that’s it or what?”, they blamed it on Arisa and Reira : Continue reading

The 12 Stages of Listening to Broken By The Scream

First, feast your ears on this:

Broken By The Scream’s first one-man is coming up in a month. This is a trailer to get you hype. Are you hype? You should be hype. Or perhaps your experience is something like this: Continue reading

Checkmate Will Take This Brutality to Their First One-man

Happy Thursday Hurtsday, you guys! For what it’s worth, by some twisted accident of time and space, there’s a lot of hurt this Hurtsday, and I couldn’t be happier. Punish me, senpai!

The first item that I’d like to draw your attention to is Checkmate. It’s been a minute since we last caught up with them, but they’ve been busy, and clearly eating broken glass and stuff, because they sound positively livid about their first one-man, coming up in August:

DESTROY THE LIVE!

This Is for You Oyasumi Hologram Fans

Much like sora tob sakana, your art-rock alt-idols aren’t always going to be the right cup of tea for Homicidols.com, but I know how a lot of you guys dig on Oyasumi Hologram (as do I!), and they just had themselves a big one-man and I think that it’s appropriate to share the set:

Also to share the fact that they have a fan page on Facebook!

Malcolm Mask McLaren Makes Me Mirthful

I can play this alliteration game all day, people. Don’t even try me

While the pre-Corenament is winding down, it’s always fun to look back in on idols that you might not have thought of in a while, but who are consistently busy working and putting out all kinds of entertain. Or, in some cases, they just pop right out for you with something fresh to check out!

In this case, Malcolm Mask McLaren (currently duking it out in the Clash Legacy Conference) shared some older video of their set at Idol Koushien (you know, that show that I stayed up late to watch and then never made it far enough to get to the good stuff).

I don’t know if that was a look-we’re-alive kind of thing, or what, but I’m glad to have seen it because I saw that MMM has something cooking. Continue reading

Heaven Help Us All: JyuJyu’s Got Plans

About a week ago, I had tweeted pure, raw excitement over this event — JyuJyu! Necroma! Uh, Dance for Philosophy! And others!(?) — that was going to be all incredibly dark and spooky and ARE YOU UNMOVED BY THE FACT THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN?

Anyway, it ain’t much, but JyuJyu unleashed a pair of new songs onto the world and announced their first one-man (with this lineup, at least). May all gods dark and terrible protect us.
