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:

I Think Maria May Be Judging Us a Little

Damn, it’s been a little while since we last saw Maria, huh? I was just minding my own business on Facebook yesterday, too, when I stumbled up this:

Oo, new song and video? Don’t mind if I do! Continue reading


This Is Certainly a Little Troubling

Doop-dee-doop, surfing around through Twitter … hello, what’s this?

Why, it’s high school idols in corpse paint playing with the tools of suicide! How uplifting!

Say hello to Naniwa Six Immortals of Poetry, or Naniwa Rokkasen, as they like to be called. This song is from their first single, “Don’t Die!,” which is coming up at the end of the month. How fitting! I mean, overall, the song and video aren’t nearly as bleak as things start off, but it definitely has that “I kill” feel to it, with the excluded girl still harboring some ill feelings. It’s a song with a message. Continue reading


A Tiny Little Bit of DEVIL GUN

And I mean a tiny bit!

Via Straight from Japan’s John in the Idolmetal group, we have — prefaced by a weird man-on-the-street segment on pants — what might be your first experience with the music of ICE CREAM SUICIDE sister group DEVIL GUN, featuring Botan on vocals:

How clever! They titled the song according to how many people will probably react to it! Continue reading


PiGU’s New Single Is Good, But the Promo Is Bonkers

I feel like I’ve been giving PiGU a lot of love lately, but this is what happens when you’re active and fun. For instance, just a week ago we got to look at the MV for one of the tracks on their new maxi single, and it was pretty far from the expected, but that’s okay; the A-side or whatever is available on their website, too.

It’s the teaser they released late last week that should really get your attention.

No matter what you think it’s about, there’s always one thing that kind of ruins that outlook

But that’s not all that’s going on. Continue reading


In Addition to This Video, There’s a Lot of PiGU Happening

One of my favorite things about little pop punkers PiGU is the way they crank out content like it’s the only thing that matters. Sure, they have a cosplay cafe and stuff to promote, but the membership goes up and down and there’s new songs and videos and a DVD and one-man and … hey look, another new video!

“Get out of My Way!” Continue reading


The Graduation Purge Next Hits 30POSSE

The other day, I wrote this:

Typo notwithstanding, I’ll stand by that; every time I see a new tweet from @goodbyeidol, my butt clenches up a little bit. WHO’S IT GONNA BE THIS TIME?! Mostly, it’s idols nobody seeing this post has ever heard of; every now and again, though, it’s a group you know that’s going to disband, or even just a particular member on her way out.

Such was the case here. One half of the cool idol groups from Yamaguchi, 30POSSE, is saying goodbye to their leader: Continue reading


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.

Mondays Can Start Right: Let Bunny Kiss Fuel You

That thing I was saying about how following X, Y and Z can lead to fun discoveries? Here’s a great example: Over on the Idolmetal Facebook group, up popped on Friday this track from the heard-of-em-but-know-nothing Bunny Kiss:

Man, that’s fun! Continue reading


Never Trust Me Again: FreFre Chime Fes Is Done

Granted, it was before Yukueshirezutsurezure made this happen and Shidare issued an open challenge to the rest of idol’s harsh vocalists and NEVE SLIDE DOWN appeared out of nowhere and BiS was brought back to life and and and, but I wasn’t kidding when I said that I thought FreFre Chime Fes might be “the future of idolcore.”

They liked that so much that they started tweeting this:

Like, every day.
