One of the most popular and divisive things I’ve ever added to this site was my 18-kinds-of-come-on theorizing about just what it is that’s going to end at Babymetal’s Tokyo Dome show (Babymetal. The answer is Babymetal. Kind of.).
Well, friends, in the last few days, I’ve become privy to even more information and noticed even more indications that I am either entirely correct or so visionary that Babymetal decided to forego their plans, which were obvious only to me as a person of incredible intelligence, foresight and good looks.
First up, what looks like a heartwarming moment between old friends …
… may be a super-dark harbinger of a less amazing future.
Do you know what this is?
If you were a wrestling fan in the 90s, you may recognize this as the infamous “Curtain Call” from Madison Square Garden — basically, a bunch of wrestlers who were friends IRL but enemies in the ring did a post-match celebration of their friendship just before two of them left the then-WWF for another company. It’s kind of a big deal.
I’ll let you do the math yourself.
As for the Moametal thing? Remember what I said about her being different from the others in official photos?

The shrine isn’t just commemorating the “Megitsune” video shoot; it’s hosting a ceremony before the Dome.
