BiS Will Set the Record for Shortest Time Before Its Second Album

I actually don’t think that title’s true. I just didn’t want to put the inflammatory stuff there.

Well, kids, I hope none of you were hoping to ask out any BiS members around Valentine’s Day, because they already have plans: They’ll be promoting their second album.

Yep! That was an awful joke and I should feel bad. Continue reading

Twitter Threw a Gosh-darn Hammer at the Alice Project

And they’re back! A couple of days in the cooler and no harm done. Does anybody know if the notables had to sacrifice followers or anything? Nope, gone again.

I was originally going to show off this bonkers-ass video of Kamen Joshi at ROBOT RESTAURANT that’s been making the rounds over the last few days, and in fact am using the exact same piece of HTML to completely change the script, because this is a much more interesting story.

Our friend Pukovnik Krv tipped me off last night that Twitter had suspended the accounts of pretty much every member of Kamen Joshi due to (tell me if this sounds familiar) “botspamming, botfollows and SEO hacking.”

Basically, according to Twitter, the tens of thousands of followers (and the almost automatic follow-backs in many cases) were nothing but a lie and in contravention of the terms of use. As of the minute that I’m pressing the Publish button, searching Twitter for Tachibana Anna or Kamiya Erina or Tsukino Moa or any other notable turns up nothing but mentions, no accounts.

I Can’t Decide If This Is Good or Bad or What

Our friends in uBu continue their pop-up assault on the greater Tokyo region, appearing seemingly at random, performing, then disappearing just as suddenly as they manifested.

But it appears that something more nefarious than an official debut live is at stake; indeed, uBu is … changing:

And Here’s PassCode Like You’ve Definitely Never Seen Them (Probably)

In a week when we saw the first glimmer of PassCode leveraging their enormous potential with the resources and opportunity afforded by major label support, I think a trip down memory lane is warranted, don’t you?

Or maybe, more appropriately, it’s a trip down the memory hole; there are probably a few people at we-B Studios (and especially Universal Japan!) who’d prefer that we not see this side of PassCode … a PassCode that’s a little … different. Continue reading

PiGU, I Love You, Why Is There So Much Drama?

Hey, remember how PiGU had five members when they first appeared here, and then all of a sudden they didn’t have that many, and then they spent most of the summer as a duo, and then suddenly were up to four and then five? Me too! That was … well, it was an excuse to keep listening to PiGU, who do make it easy, what with new video all the time and stuff.

Anyway, guess who’s going through another bout of membership madness? Just translate your way through this string of tweets:

Nope, SiS Was Just an Epic Troll Job?

What?

I guess all that other stuff was just …

There’s more to this. Somehow. Right?

Let’s Also Meet DEVIL NO ID

We here at Homicidols.com, like to pride ourselves on a spirit of discovery and, unlike the 2-year-old monster who won’t eat anything other than Spaghetti-O’s and chicken nuggets, open-minded willingness to try just about anything. So when I see things show up in the Idolmetal group at odd hours, I know enough to mark it down and come back in the morning, because it’s probably at least worth a look.

And folks, what a look.


I–

Let’s Fund a Bellring Girls Heart Translation

I know, I know, you all aren’t as WOO THEY’RE SO WEIRD AND AMAZING as I am, but this is a unique opportunity to crowdfund (independently of other action, btw) a translation of Bellring Girls Heart’s Sixth Dimension film. The subtitles become a free download in the end, and knowing where/how to get the film requires only a small amount of poking, and then, well, you get to enjoy the results in full.

Here’s the trailer, just to give you an idea of what you’re looking at:

Do it.

Two Members of Ladybaby Walked into a TV Studio …

Ladybaby is officially on hiatus, but Rie and Rei are still doing work together, in this case as hosts of this, uh, show with another weird adult man. Like, a lot of the stuff I watch is kind of weird because I can’t understand what’s being said and the context is missing, etc., but this is weird, period.

So enjoy!


Thanks a lot, Pure Idol Heart, for inadvertently getting me to actually watch this entire bizarre segment.
