Phew, lads! I almost had to dump this fun onto the other writers again, what with NECRONOMIDOL’S European tour this week as well as a few personal ups and downs and events and incidents, but insomnia thoughts won out in the end and I’m here! Now, let’s look at last week’s highlights:
Actually, this Fun is actually a little bit inspired by this week’s Necroma-charged antics. It’s the first time I got to see the new lineup in action, and it’s fairly known at this point that newbie Kunogi is the evolved form of Gokigen Teikoku’s Hibiki. Appreciating an idol in one group I love, losing her, seeing her re-emerge in my favourite group and then eventually meeting her in person after all this time? Pretty darn cool! Continue reading
Alright, alright, alright, you Yanks had your fun last week, but now it’s time to get back to the norm before an all-new Homicidols revolution takes place.
So, idols change their style all the time, right? Sometimes their old output just wasn’t working, sometimes they just fancy a change and other times everyone leaves at once and they have to suddenly rebrand. It happens. And when it does, it can often be hit-and-miss. Now, let’s not start big old fights about the “Orchestrafication” of BiSH or anything like that, but instead how about we experiment with new looks and styles for our favourite idols, then pray to a divine entity that these terrible results don’t happen for real!

The Americans are taking over the Fun! In the spirit of the 4th of July, us Yanks with no social media savvy have wrested control of the Friday Fun away from our resident British monarch, Kerrie.
This revolution should in no way be seen as Kerrie’s punishment for last Friday’s Fun, #AltIdolBabyShower, leaking a little too far into reality.
Other than SENANAN taking the idea literally, the rest of you were surprisingly well behaved.
As we recover from our raucous Independence Day celebrations of hot dogs, monster trucks, fireworks and Pabst Blue Ribbon (ed. actually I just binged Stranger Things and had a Chinese chicken salad), we ask you to imagine, what would our land of the free and home of the brave look like if had been founded by idols, for idols?
- What if the Constitutional Congress had been run like a BiS audition?
- What if Zero-chan had crossed the icy Delaware wielding a baseball bat with nails in it?
- What if Hanako-san had gotten to add a few amendments to the Bill of Rights?
- What if Melon Batake a Go-Go had their very own State?
So, Montero’s pegnate.
As one might expect with an idol pragnancy, this has brought Zekkyou60 to a bittersweet end. And sometimes, as proven in the past, bittersweet endings can make for great Friday Fun fodder, as we cry through our memes.
This is going to be all about the pergenat lady of the hour, as we collectively celebrate Montero’s incoming fetus and predict what a party for a pregonate titan as herself would be like. Oh, and all your oshis are invited to the fake baby shower.
Yeah, this is probably gonna enter weird territory.
This week’s hashtag is #AltIdolBabyShower. And to think, I didn’t even get the opportunity to use “pregananant” in this post.
*Alternatively you could imagine your own oshi is prefnat if you want this to get into super-weird territory.
Psst, well done last week!
Last week… Last week… what was last week? I just woke up.
Did you read Daemon’s excellent review of NECRONOMIDOL’s newest output this week? You should! Go do it! Now! I’ll wait.
What’s that? You don’t have the time for long album reviews any more? Tut tut. Look, I don’t know what you do, but that’s really not on. There has to be a way to condense all the opinions and little details spotted of an idol release in a small, easy to read format, right? Continue reading
Last week, we probably made Watanabe cry!
It’s E3 this week! As someone who has been waiting six god damn years for a new Animal Crossing game, I for one will definitely be staying tuned, and I know many of you will be too! So, this weekend let’s celebrate the two things I’ll be tweeting about most this week; video games and idols.
I’m pretty certain we did this before already, but hey, there’s only so much meme material you can think of before you have to loop back around again. So there you go. Continue reading
Last week, we saw some terrible idol names! And I also realised that this was another Fun we recycled without realising! Wow, I’ve lost all remaining shreds of originality!
Say, it’s been a while since I annoyed the hell out of everyone with yet another Friday Fun dedicated to Watanabe harassment, isn’t it? Well, everyone say, thank you Watanabe!
So, Twitter, why is he crying? BiSloss? Foreign fans? Totally not just getting emotional at his friend’s wedding nosiree we have no tolerance for sensible answers in this column!
So, have at it. Guess why our Junnosuke boy is crying with the hashtag of, well, #WhyJSKisCrying. What, I already said I’ve lost all shred of originality at this point.
Last week you described music videos, badly!
Today’s Friday Fun is brought to you by
And the newly-announced Baby♡♡Holic!
You know what they all have in common?
Regardless of whether you think their music or members are good or not, they all have names that make you go “Wait… what are they called?”
Are their names technically good names because they bring forth attention and discussion from the overseas fandom? Or are they just plain bad? Either way, try telling someone your favourite J-Pop group is KinKi Kids and see their response. Continue reading
Last week, you predicted what the now-ex members of BiS would be doing after BiS. And… well, you might be right? You might not be? Honestly I was hoping the announcements of their futures last week would have been a bit more detailed. All I know is that I wept for Kika, just one of many lost oshis this year. Ah.
What’s more twitter than those tweets and hashtags challenging you to “Describe [x] badly?”. Actually, lots of things. Fanwars for one thing (think I’m gonna wait for things to cool off a little before I introduce my “draw idols better than Inagawa Jun” hashtag). But, nonetheless, it’s something that I see a lot. “Describe your favourite movie badly”, “Describe the ending of a game badly”. I think we’ve already done “Describe your favourite idol” before, but no-one’s done music video, right? I hope not, because that’s this week hashtag! Well? Get on it! #BadlyDescribeAnIdolMV, off you go!
Well, I’m suitably traumatized!
What is it about WACK that brings out the cursed in people?
Speaking of traumatized, BiS are finally disbanding again tomorrow after having gone through more than enough trauma of having to deal with Watanabe than the average person could probably handle. You’ll see my thoughts about the whole thing in another article this weekend (provided they don’t reveal that this was an elaborate joke all along) but for now, lets just meme the hell out of it today and cry about it tomorrow!
