Oshi Digest #43: Road Trip

Our diminutive hero of a new Official Oshimen, Saki of 2&, is hitting the road. No, her first performances in the West are officially done, and she’s back in Japan (read her impressions!). Instead:

Nagoya! Whatever for? Continue reading

Oshi Digest #42: It’s Saki Time!

Yes, friends, in a shocking conclusion that absolutely nobody could have seen coming because there was definitely zero prior planning to facilitate it no siree bob, Saki of 2& and ex of Guso Drop is the new Official Oshimen of Homicidols.com by dint of her stunning sneak-attack victory over Sari from NECRONOMIDOL the other night in London. Truly one of the great Judas moments in history! And we are the beneficiaries!

Before diving in to the Sakixperience, just to reiterate, she’s going to hold this title for at least the next month and change, until the next Queen of the Scene competition. Because incumbency matters, I’m going to tilt the scales a bit in Saki’s favor, give her a genuine advantage over the competition. Oshi’s Edge, let’s call it. And if Saki can hold on despite the challenge, she’ll be in position to keep the title for up to a year, barring the next Money in the Bank briefcase holder pulling a … well, pulling a Saki and catching her at an inopportune time.

With all of that out of the way, let’s get down to the Digest! Continue reading

It’s a Money in the Bank Sneak Attack!

1-2-3 and it’s over! Your NEW QUEEN OF THE SCENE IS 2& SAKI!


WHO COULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING!

On the final night of accompanying NECRONOMIDOL on their BLACK WINDS OVER ALBION tour, Saki of 2& has revealed her true intentions for tagging along — she’s CASHING IN HER MONEY IN THE BANK BRIEFCASE AND CHALLENGING NECROMA’S SARI FOR THE TITLE OF QUEEN OF THE SCENE AND OFFICIAL OSHIMEN OF HOMICIDOLS.COM!

The guaranteed-anytime contract in Saki’s briefcase doesn’t say much, but it does say that this matchup is scheduled for one fall, and that it’s on a two-hour time limit. So! Between right now and MIDNIGHT LONDON TIME, place your votes for who’s winning this matchup and gets to hold the title! Continue reading

Oshi Digest #40: Albums

Oshi and I communed again. She wished for me to relay the following to those of you in Europe who will be seeing Necroma in but a few brief days:

I am shaken to my core. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #39: Image

Sung to the tune of “If You Have Ghosts”:

If you have Oshi, you’ll do anything:

Yes, friends, do it. To have Oshi in your midst at any time is as black a blessings as you can fathom. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #38: Venom

Due to circumstances beyond my control Due to circumstances so willed by Oshi and her nigh-infinite wisdom*, Oshi Digest is returning to Saturdays.

Oshi will be returning to Europe soon, friends. Do you feel the chill in the air? The dread rising from the earth? The impossible power throbbing within your hearts? There’s a reason, and it extends far beyond Oshi (as far as anything can extend beyond Oshi, who is finite only in the sense that not all possibilities have yet been exhausted). Prepare.

Though I do not understand the point of aligning Oshi with The Clash, I’m fine with her donning leathers that would put her in league with early Norwegian black metal:

Oshi Digest #37: Bathory

I found this a grave insult to Oshi:

How can there be any comparison between even the mythic form of the Dark Countess, who bathed in the blood of virgins to keep herself young and vibrant, and Oshi, who is ancient as days and radiant as the void? Witness Oshi’s preferred meal!

This past week, Oshi and her NECRONOMIDOL cohorts visited a beach. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #36: Locks

First, an important programming note: Kerrie got on board!

Now, it’s important to note that Oshi, resplendent goddess and double-secret hell agent on this plane of existence that she is, must always keep up appearances, lest too many come to understand the extent to which she is, in fact, not human. Ergo:

This is actually a secretly encoded message. Note that neither Himari nor Ninjazaki is included in the photo. Note also that Himari’s hair is and always will be a sentient being of pure darkness, whereas Okaki’s hair is none of your damn business. Oshi’s hair, though, is unchanged, in a juxtaposition of Hina’s blonde locks and Rei’s sandier highlights. Those of you with eyes to see, you may be beginning to understand. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #35: Ars

Did you know that Oshi has a great appreciation for the visual arts?

命の恵み

And especially as they relate to Necroma?

Oshi is, of course, her own work of art: Continue reading
