Let’s Have Ourselves a Look at Mikicco

It was literally months ago when one of the routine Twitter conversations with Pure Idol Heart got me to pop open a few video snips in my browser at work … whereupon I basically forgot about them for a while. But I needed to clean up my whole business there this week, so I took some time to stick around after hours and account for things, either just Xing it out for being not terribly interesting or setting reminders for myself, and this is the result of one of those reminders.

This is Mikicco (Twitter), aka Mikitsuko Mikikko, and her profile lists her as being less than 4 cm tall and 4 kg in weight, so she must be very small indeed. No really. Also something with shellfish, loving and hating it. Weird girl! Continue reading

Your Homicidols Weekender #23

Hey gang! Have you had a good time with the Friday Fun? It’s been surprisingly kind of slow around these parts lately, huh? We should expect that some big names will drop good material on us soon, though, and make some big announcements. I’m also toying with doing something for Golden Week (all concepts so far = bad), and bringing in a feature from a certain now-dead website that sort of influences things over here, that with some community input.

Otherwise, hell, there’s some newer stuff that I’ll try to spread out, but let’s hope that cool new videos and the like start to surface.

Besides That Crap, What Happened This Week?

Idols appreciate idols. Like Guso Drop and the World Standard:

It’s Friday, So We May as Well Enjoy More STARMARIE

I swear it, while I may occasionally look in on STARMARIE’s YouTube channel to see if/when/what they have in terms of new stuff (it’s often a lot!), I don’t deliberately have this thing for them on Friday or over the weekend; things just kind of work out that way.

In this case, just kind of building on the last (and recent) bit of video, this is “Galaxies visible from the rooftop”:

Lets Go For A Run With Up Up Girls (Kari) In Their New MV!

If you’re wondering why it’s always me who does these reports on Up Up Girls (Kari)  and not Maniac, it’s because they’re very much on the lighter scale of the Homicidols spectrum. As in I was actually pretty suprised when Maniac finally caved to fan demand and added them to the Homicidols roster. But also delighted, because if there’s a group on this site that I could call “sunshine personified”, it’s Up Up Girls (Kari).

You want an example? Well, in their newest music video, “FOREVER YOUNG”, they make running a marathon look way more fun than WACK could ever manage.

But hey, that’s not the only music video they released this week. After going on that jog, what feels better than relaxing with a nice bath? If you’re able to deal with curious child perverts and your bath time inexplicably turning into a disco party, anyway. Continue reading

Bonus Thursday Hurtsday: Live Wagamama Rakia!

Who else out there remembers Wagamama Rakia? I do, because I was momentarily significantly excited about them last year, only to be just as let down as always.

Why can’t idols always be exactly what I want them to be?!

At any rate, Pure Idol Heart had brought them up the other day, and then Viz Major was sharing this on Facebook and I felt like, yeah, sure, let’s have a look in: Continue reading

I’m Bringing in Ska Idols for Indie Idol Wednesday

By some odd stroke of luck, I wound up with a plethora of stuff that would be good for Indie Idol Wednesday, you guys, but I felt like I was going to wind up treading a little too closely to familiar territory, so I wracked all 19 remaining brain cells to think of somebody to visit who might be off the beaten path, and then I remembered …

The Ska Idol Project! Neither Like,Hate,Love nor her sisters in Snowdrop did very well in the Corenament, but such is the story for a great many things. It’s nice to see, though, that they’re still staying busy and getting onto various festival stages in addition to the usual club scene:

Who’s in the Mood for NECRONOMIDOL Live?

From what I’ve seen across the idolverse in the last week and change, a bunch of folks were either just in Tokyo or are about to be in Tokyo, and they’re talking about their idol experience — saw so-and-so, got a great cheki, bought this merch stuff. And a bunch of people saw Necroma! Which, we’re very lucky that you made it home!

I doubt very many of them were at this show over the weekend, but maybe they can tell us about it from when they were at a show; if you’ve puzzled at all over the live performance of “ITHAQUA” since its triumphant appearance in our lives a little while back, this is for you:

It’s a Bonus WTF Because I Miss PiGU

No, no, PiGU isn’t going anywhere — from what their Twitter feed looks like, they’re still doing auditions. It’s been a little while since Rino’s graduation, which I failed to get anything together for because reasons, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love Osaka’s resident cosplay cafe pop punk idols (and supporters of the Best of 2016!).

I have been sort of hovering over their Twitter lately in the hopes of spying something new; yes, you could argue that “live video of the trio members” would count, but they’re still doing the familiar songs and I was hoping for a chance to do something a little more unique. Fortunately, they delivered!

I Might Be Wrong, But This Was All the WTF I Could Handle for Tuesday

Hey team! So there’s plenty of “normal” stuff (that is, music videos etc.) today, or as normal as it gets for this whole business, but … you know how idols can get kind of creative in how and when they screw around, and how that tends to wind up on video, which then winds up on Twitter, when then winds up burning itself into the ancient reptilian part of your brain, which is probably exactly what they intended?

So Yannderu Ame, among the latest in sick-plus-disturbed-plus-crying idols, recently had themselves a little moment like that, I think. I say “I think” because what looks to me like a moment out of Ringu could simply be how they start the day, or part of a more elaborate bit of play-acting, I don’t know, don’t judge me.

I Had an Even Better Reaction to Pikarin’s Latest

And speaking of videos that came out yesterday and I temporarily had to shelve in the interests of time, Pikarin joined Guso Drop in making good on a teaser video for her most recent release:

Man, I think we got played! Continue reading
