Saki Has a New Single!

One of my greatest regrets from the past year has been the effective abandonment of the Oshi Digest and the regular celebration of our latest Official Oshi, Saki of 2&, whose final showdown with Necroma’s Himari during Queen of the Scene last year ended in a tie. The reason that most of you don’t know that is: I never published the final post, because the 2018 QOTS was the swan song of Maniac doing Homicidols the way he always had and wishes he always could. Alas.

But yes, technically Saki is still our official Oshi, so imagine my delight in seeing that she was up to some sharable things lately, and then getting that outcome to pay off yesterday, when she released her new single and this MV to go with it:

Krv used to provide some truly great insights into Saki and the progression of 2& since she left Daichi and connected with new management. Plus: She made it to the West! Minus: I guess it depends on where you, as an older or newer fan or just benign passerby, fall re: Saki’s music now vs. her earlier work, and if you’re a “2&” person or a “DOUBLE AND” person, and things like that. I personally enjoyed the track and am effectively overjoyed that we have 2& in our lives for the foreseeable future. 2& Day is only a couple of months away now!

Oshi Digest #47: Trepid

In case you didn’t know, friends, our relatively new Oshi is facing a challenge. Yes, on Wednesday, she’ll find out who her opponent will be on Friday in the final match-up of Queen of the Scene, with the winner carrying the Official Oshimen of Homicidols Dot Com forward into the future. That means being the star of the Oshi Digest, which is an honor not to be discarded by anybody who likes it when literally dozens of foreign people consider that to be a big deal.

Saki’s so distraught that she’s showing off her forehead:

Oshi Digest #46: Input

This week’s Oshi Digest held up for legitimate reasons, I swear!

The nice thing about Saki as Oshi is that she’s so totally and deliberately interactive she is with her fans:

Yes, which color do you prefer? Do you like the sunflower? You can tell her! Continue reading

Oshi Digest #45: Lifestyles of the Rich and Oshi

After announcing that the Oshi Digest was moving semi-permanently to Monday, Maniac got too big-boy busy and now has to do it on Tuesday for the week! Sorry, Saki!

Try to imagine Saki-oshi’s life for a minute, you guys. You’re a well-known underground music figure, you’ve gone from center of a group to fully solo work, you’ve performed abroad, some weird foreign idol fan site has made you an object of veneration. The rewards for such generalized largesse of fortune apparently include partying on yachts!

Oshi Digest #44: Friends

The Oshi Digest is henceforth moving to Mondays for any of a number of reasons, but mind your business anyway!

As recounted in the last Oshi Digest, our Official Oshimen of Homicidols.com, Saki of 2&, sure does seem to have a lot of idol friends out there, and she likes to take photos with them. Here’s a whole mess of them!

And with NoA! Continue reading

Oshi Digest #42: It’s Saki Time!

Yes, friends, in a shocking conclusion that absolutely nobody could have seen coming because there was definitely zero prior planning to facilitate it no siree bob, Saki of 2& and ex of Guso Drop is the new Official Oshimen of Homicidols.com by dint of her stunning sneak-attack victory over Sari from NECRONOMIDOL the other night in London. Truly one of the great Judas moments in history! And we are the beneficiaries!

Before diving in to the Sakixperience, just to reiterate, she’s going to hold this title for at least the next month and change, until the next Queen of the Scene competition. Because incumbency matters, I’m going to tilt the scales a bit in Saki’s favor, give her a genuine advantage over the competition. Oshi’s Edge, let’s call it. And if Saki can hold on despite the challenge, she’ll be in position to keep the title for up to a year, barring the next Money in the Bank briefcase holder pulling a … well, pulling a Saki and catching her at an inopportune time.

With all of that out of the way, let’s get down to the Digest! Continue reading

It’s a Money in the Bank Sneak Attack!

1-2-3 and it’s over! Your NEW QUEEN OF THE SCENE IS 2& SAKI!


WHO COULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING!

On the final night of accompanying NECRONOMIDOL on their BLACK WINDS OVER ALBION tour, Saki of 2& has revealed her true intentions for tagging along — she’s CASHING IN HER MONEY IN THE BANK BRIEFCASE AND CHALLENGING NECROMA’S SARI FOR THE TITLE OF QUEEN OF THE SCENE AND OFFICIAL OSHIMEN OF HOMICIDOLS.COM!

The guaranteed-anytime contract in Saki’s briefcase doesn’t say much, but it does say that this matchup is scheduled for one fall, and that it’s on a two-hour time limit. So! Between right now and MIDNIGHT LONDON TIME, place your votes for who’s winning this matchup and gets to hold the title! Continue reading
