I was very randomly poking around YouTube and thought, “Hey, I could go for another watch of the WHO KiLLED IDOL? trailer, seeing people get their dreams crushed repeatedly is pretty great when there’s still a happy ending for a few of them,” so I did a usual search for “SiS” and … well, I haven’t seen this one before.
OF COURSE THIS HAPPENED EVENTUALLY.
So the edited-up version of the BiS auditions airs tonight (or now, I guess, or tomorrow? Japanese dates confuse me), and it’s probably a good recap for those of us who watched pretty much the entire audition boot camp as if there were going to be any insights — hell, if you were paying attention, it was clear from early on who the winners were going to be, lending credence to the it-was-all-a-stunt-of-course-it-was-this-is-Watanabe-we’re-talking-about of it all.
For many, the most interesting outcome of the auditions wasn’t New BiS, but the spin-off sister/rival group SiS, the prototype of which stormed the stage at the New BiS debut and got people really excited and then had themselves a really cool debut live of their own and then … well.
