Kerrie Interviews Idols (Again): NECRONOMIDOL

Ah, yes, arguably, the main event. It’s weird, actually. This is the second time I have interviewed Necroma (and the third time Homicidols has interviewed them overall), but I was still the most nervous about this particular interview.

I can say without a doubt that NECRONOMIDOL are my favourite unit nowadays. And Sari is not just the official Homicidols oshi of 2017-2018 (well), she also shares the joint podium with GANG PARADE’s Coco Partin Coco as my personal kamioshi. I was insanely excited, but terrified, to see them again.

Well, I’m sure enough people saw my Twitter fangirling to know that it went okay. They were all lovely to see again, as always. Rei even pulled out a chair for me to sit on as we started the interview! As it was Hina’s birthday in a couple of days, I gave her a gift bag of chocolate and a Hedwig plushie, and she was happy, and then I was happy! There’s a lot really that I could babble on about. There’s not much to say about their actual performance that hasn’t already been said before; they were absolutely captivating, as always. I think Sari’s facial spider may have been powering my ability to take photos, as once I noticed that it had fallen from her face, my camera ran out of space and my phone ran out of battery. Spooky!

Oshi and I communed again. She wished for me to relay the following to those of you in Europe who will be seeing Necroma in but a few brief days:

I am shaken to my core. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #39: Image

Sung to the tune of “If You Have Ghosts”:

If you have Oshi, you’ll do anything:

Yes, friends, do it. To have Oshi in your midst at any time is as black a blessings as you can fathom. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #38: Venom

Due to circumstances beyond my control Due to circumstances so willed by Oshi and her nigh-infinite wisdom*, Oshi Digest is returning to Saturdays.

Oshi will be returning to Europe soon, friends. Do you feel the chill in the air? The dread rising from the earth? The impossible power throbbing within your hearts? There’s a reason, and it extends far beyond Oshi (as far as anything can extend beyond Oshi, who is finite only in the sense that not all possibilities have yet been exhausted). Prepare.

Though I do not understand the point of aligning Oshi with The Clash, I’m fine with her donning leathers that would put her in league with early Norwegian black metal:

Oshi Digest #37: Bathory

I found this a grave insult to Oshi:

How can there be any comparison between even the mythic form of the Dark Countess, who bathed in the blood of virgins to keep herself young and vibrant, and Oshi, who is ancient as days and radiant as the void? Witness Oshi’s preferred meal!

This past week, Oshi and her NECRONOMIDOL cohorts visited a beach. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #36: Locks

First, an important programming note: Kerrie got on board!

Now, it’s important to note that Oshi, resplendent goddess and double-secret hell agent on this plane of existence that she is, must always keep up appearances, lest too many come to understand the extent to which she is, in fact, not human. Ergo:

This is actually a secretly encoded message. Note that neither Himari nor Ninjazaki is included in the photo. Note also that Himari’s hair is and always will be a sentient being of pure darkness, whereas Okaki’s hair is none of your damn business. Oshi’s hair, though, is unchanged, in a juxtaposition of Hina’s blonde locks and Rei’s sandier highlights. Those of you with eyes to see, you may be beginning to understand. Continue reading

Oshi Digest #35: Ars

Did you know that Oshi has a great appreciation for the visual arts?

And especially as they relate to Necroma?

Oshi is, of course, her own work of art: Continue reading

Oshi Digest #34: Ours

Because people are tasteless savages, Oshi unfortunately did not ultimately win Tokyo Idol Queen:

You’re gosh darn right, Oshi. You are the Queen, and no amount of wota treason can change that. You earned it! Continue reading

Oshi Digest #32: Rani

We should all be supporting Oshi! But how! Frankly, I’m not completely sure. I believe that it involves acquiring this magazine, which doe a solo song by Oshi, but is also no longer available via Necroma Bandcamp, so you’re on your own. Nonetheless, because she is the Queen of the Scene, and because she is the actual queen of idol, she deserves the support.

This is why you will vote for her:

And: Continue reading
