If you’re cool and have amazing taste, you might have caught wind that our new best friend Kyunchi♡ dropped a track with Nonamera today. If you’re a little behind, Kyunchi♡ is Thee genderless pop icon from cyberspace, smashing together global pop culture and spitting out high glamour songs for high stakes times.
Previously, we featured their track “Mecha Angel Genesis♡” in our article about the influence of jpop on hyperpop – idol fans are no stranger to the crossover of genres, but this was more than a crossover, an American artist so proudly working with Syva from Codomomental was a shock! And why stop when you have something good? “WORLDWIDE☆GIRL feat. Nonamera” served as a great opportunity to sit down with Kyunchi♡ in the digital realm and really talk about the method to the 200BPM madness.
New members! Old members! New sound! The girls are BACK and stronger than ever. As a group, KAQRIYOTERROR have never been afraid to push the boundaries of taste or sensibility, and “Ensemble Berserk” is the latest chapter of their erotic grotesque nonsense storybook.
“That girl thinks she’s the queen of the neighborhood
I got news for you, SHE IS”
Have you seen these lyrics from Bikini Kill’s Rebel girl? Clearly, Kathleen Hanna was prescient and wrote this song before the girl that would become Nonamera was even a concept in either of her parents’ mind. I’m kidding, of course, please don’t send me hate mail. This apparte and Bikini Kill have little to do with the musicality of Nonamera’s first solo release, and yet they are absolutely applicable to the blonde pixie.
Since said mini-album was just released, why don’t you hop in to read what we think of it?
An email just hit my inbox from Monkey Paw Entertainment reminding me that Saboten Con is next weekend. How the hell did that sneak up on me? That means that, seven days from now, when you sit down to read Weekender #302, MELON BATAKE A GO GO will have already smashed their US debut.
Cal proposed this project some time ago. “Let’s all come up with our ten favorite idol songs,” he said. “It’ll be fun,” he said. It’s actually a pretty agonizing experience. Getting the list down to about 25 or 30 favorite songs isn’t too difficult, but whittling it down from there becomes extraordinarily painful. You can see that, in the end, I copped out and included an extra 10 songs that I couldn’t bear not to mention. I’m doing a terrible job at selling this, because the whole point of this intro is to try to talk you into going through the exercise yourself.
Please complete this Google Form to tell us your ten favorite idol songs, and why. Entries that are fit to print will be featured here on this very blog. The last thing we want is for Homicidols to exist as an echo chamber of Team’s crappy tastes and opinions (no matter how erudite and correct they may be), so please let us know what you think.

While performing at Super Music Festival over weekend, PLANCK STARS announced that they have added new member.
Yes, Puri-Chan is a Shibu Inu, and when they aren’t busy being an idol, they also work as a runway model. Continue reading
Welcome to the 300th consecutive iteration of the world’s longest-running English language weekly serialized collection of alt, indie and underground idol content! 300 weekends is a long time. 5.679 years, to be precise. Can anyone remember what they were doing 5.679 years ago?
For me, everything before the year 2020 is a bit of a blur at this point so, just for fun, I went back to read the very first Weekender. It was posted in November of 2016 and is full of talk of BABYMETAL and BiS and the debut album from BPM15Q. I then leapt forward in time to Weekender #100 which landed in October of 2018 and features the debut of Ayuni D’s PEDRO. Weekender #200 was posted in September of 2020 and reminded me that we haven’t heard from THIS IS NATS in quite some time.
If you haven’t caught the buzz lately, EMPiRE are no more. Just as nations become lost and empires fall, so do idol groups.
What, too hamfisted? It was a sentimental break-up, so we wanted to use some powerful language! Still no? Well… they broke up and released their final four songs as a group, out to stream right now.
This coming Saturday, Homicidols will publish Weekender #300. That is almost six years worth of Weekenders. As we approach this milestone, Team Homicidols has decided that it’s time to do some housekeeping. We are working on updating some of our static content, but there was one other item that we have been wanting to address.
Homicidols’ tagline is currently, “The Hard Side of Idol”, which was perfect for the early years of alternative idol which was dominated by punk, metal and electronic hardcore. In recent years, however, the genre has shifted and we now find ourselves spending about half the time covering stuff like shoegaze, dream pop, prog rock and even electro swing. In an effort to help ensure our branding stays on point, it’s time for a refresh and we would like your assistance. Continue reading
You may not realize it, dear reader, but we are in the midst of a record-breaking streak. We have now published new content on Homicidols dot com for an unprecedented six days in a row. A modern era record! Unfortunately, the streak will end here today as we have nothing scheduled to post tomorrow. We do have a special Monday Match Game planned, so everyone take tomorrow off and we’ll get back at it early next week. Good work everybody!
Even with publishing new articles every day, we still managed to miss a lot including major MV drops from some of our heaviest hitters like:
MIGMA SHELTER gives us a rare MV. Nod in approval at 120 beats per minute.
