BiS Gave Us New Video for a Not-new Song but Also Unveiled Their New Look

I actually almost popped when the announcement hit Twitter — NEW BIS MV OMG! — and was just the tiniest bit let down that the video wasn’t for the upcoming single release, but was actually for “Romeo’s Heart” off of the last album (which was good on the whole!). It’s still an indie release, so it’s published by Tsubasa and is, of course, region-blocked until some generous soul posts it to another service helpfully re-upped by a friend!

None Can Resist the Power of the Fox God: Red Hot Chili Peppers & Babymetal

I am so stupid happy to bring this to you guys.

Well, unless you’ve seen it elsewhere. But! Dave K. bopped the link to this over email this morning, and I felt like I was duty-bound to bring you Babymetal blending chocolate and chili peppers, a combination that I’ve never found as tasty in execution as one might hope, but is pretty fun when turned into a live musical performance:

Get a Little More into What Yannderu Ame Sounds Like

Good morning! Things are returning to normalish: I’m getting some more time back finally, I think that I may have found a solution to that weird commenting thing (and please tell me yea or nay if it seems to be right for you), there’s idol things happening … yup, good times are upon us.

And to respond: Yesterday, Yannderu Ame chucked onto the world a lyric video for “Idol Love Memorandum”:


Thanks, PIH!

Hm. Continue reading

So It Turns out That Pikarin Can Play Nicely with Others

Happy Saturday, gang! It’s not yet May, but we’re about to have our first 90-degree day of the year, and of course all that travel lately means that ol’ Maniac gets to celebrate said bullshit-hot day by going outside to do lots of yard work and stuff!

So we can all have something to enjoy, here’s live Pikarin that not all young women are at the mercy of Shiina when she performs — some of them even perform with her!


It doesn’t even involve any biting or groping!

I Hope You’re Ready for Koutei Camera Gal

As promised in the Weekender a la the ongoing hip-hop idol life of LaLa Sugar and friends, here are two of those friends and their most recent work:

Yep. Koutei Camera Gal. There was a nice little buzz when this video appeared yesterday, and deserved, because Everything Camera Girl/Gal and Also Their Sucessors is cool as hell. Continue reading

Your Homicidols Weekender #24

I felt seriously irresponsible this week, you guys, and we wound up doing a bunch of stuff anyway! I think I got good feedback on the whole who’d-be-fun-to-follow thing, though feel free to input if you haven’t, and of course continue to screw around with the Fun.

The Week That Was, or Was It?

Did you see that those of us in North America can finally get “bite the bullet”?

If You Like Your Idol Very Idol, Have Some New Diamondollfy

Definitely not how I expected to start off Friday, but why the heck not? The whole Blue Forest family does their thing, and they do it well, and you know exactly what you’re going to get, and that what is goes sparkly-idols-meet-Stryper, and that’s fine if that’s what something you can dig:


Thanks, PIH

Say, What’s Haruno Megumi Doing?

That little bit of business with Lyric Holic got me to wondering about my other favorite underground metal idol unit that survived the massive bloodletting that was 2016, but Mugen Regina themselves are still in the midst of turning their relaunch into something worth more serious following, BUT their official YouTube channel did up and follow a certain ex-member’s newly started channel, and said certain ex-member’s newly started account has fresh stuff on it!

Yeah, the last time we specifically saw Haruno Megumi, it was for a TV show; going back to when her solo musical career was first announced, though, those who have interest in her recreating the magic that was “from hell” have wondered exactly when that solo musical career was going to bear fruit. Then it did!

That is not what I expected from her! Continue reading

This Is Violent: Lyric Holic Live

Now this is what I’d been waiting for! I actually had to laugh a little bit when Viz Major added these in the A.lt-Idol group yesterday, because I had looked at the Your Lyric Holic Needs You YouTube account about an hour prior, just part of the usual who’s-doing-what-if-anything routine that I advise anytime there’s less going on in the idolsphere, and all they had there was some short tribute stuff for Psycho Predator.

Then I got two sources for these (rare) full live videos and couldn’t have been happier:

I’ve Been a Bad Maniac This Week, So I’ll Make It up to You

Hey gang!

I’m finally back from the traveling and conferencing and stuff, and I stopped for a second to realize that, , we haven’t done any of the regularly themed daily posts! Zounds and gadzooks!

So let’s go ahead and make amends: Here’s something perfectly acceptable for WTF Tuesday and Indie Idol Wednesday in one fell swoop:
