My apologies, kiddos, for being a bad Maniac yesterday and not contributing much of anything, but I was dealing with some stuff and it just got to the point where posting anew wasn’t going to better anybody’s lives, so I decided to just shift the relevant stuff ahead a day.
And speaking of relevant!
BiSH’s Nirvana-themed tour final was yesterday, and at it they announced the biggest show in their history, and arguably for anybody in the WACK camp — they’re going to Makuhari Messe (Event Hall — see below0. That’s kind of a big deal. Continue reading
This is very new and very light on details, and in fact I skipped right over it earlier and had to be shown the error of my ways by our translator pal, but holy smokes, you guys, NECRONOMIDOL is taking their dark gospel to Europe:
Details are currently non-existent, except that they’re going to France and Italy in the early part of July, and may be add other countries, too. Unholy smokes. Continue reading
Well if this wasn’t a fun surprise for the afternoon:
I’m taking the dates listed in this Natalie.mu article to be the definitive ones, a bunch of stuff out West but none of Korn’s shows elsewhere in the country. Continue reading
Updated to reflect Jul’s note in the comments
Screaming Sixties are just about the hardest-working idols in the business; when they aren’t performing, they’re traveling to perform, and/or creating various ridiculous scenarios. I don’t understand half of what’s going on, but they seem to be enjoying themselves, as do the fans who line up to take part in … I’m not sure. It’s like a funhouse of being turned into a prop or hit with things.
Anyway, Zekkyou’s been posting some of the greatest hits from their episodes with wota, kind of like how they did last year, and sharing the results on Twitter. I’m actually leaving out some activity (you can cruise through their whole stream for much of the fun); I just wanted to include some highlights.
Yukueshirezutsurezure ended a year of speculation the other day and set themselves up in a rather unique position, and I’m trying to sum that up here, but I’m also impressed by some things that seem apparent for the Idols Now Known as Not Secured, Loose Ends in English (that’s gonna take some getting used to), and I want to talk about them.
But first. Continue reading
Possible idolcore nostalgia act and recent releasers of an album that’s better than we think it is, BiS, is showing that the snark of Westerners is nothing compared to filthy, filthy wota lucre, and they’re once again immediately turning the finale of one effort into the beginning of another:
New single. New tour. Natalie.mu with the usual details. All right. Continue reading

Because it’s idol, and because why would you stop even for a minute to count the luchre ill-gained by notoriety, and also it’s idol and that’s not how it works, the Queens of Yami-kawaii in Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da will be releasing their fourth (currently untitled) single on April 26:
Though how funny would it be if they kept the “TBA” title the same way that they kept “Mudai Gasshou,” which was definitely deliberate but I feel like stirring some stuff this morning
