We are proud to at last reveal to our dear readers, Homicidols™ The Video Game! Years in the planning, it was to feature state of the art computer animations of all the greatest idols with actual voice-overs from many of them too. KOTO was coming out of retirement to do the theme tune and we were in discussion with various platforms for exclusive distribution rights.
Then Daemon went and blew the entire budget on Melon Batake a go go chekis at Saboten Con, so we quickly threw together this rubbish Rock, Paper, Scissors based thing instead. Enjoy!
Congratulations to REBEL REBEL! Their producer tweets:
Wow! I love REBEL REBEL, nice to see them get some success! Strange though, despite some efforts from this site, you don’t really see much chat about them from overseas idol fans.
And the iTunes Store? Who still uses that? Who purchases albums when you can get the choice from millions of songs on a cheap or free streaming subscription?
Well actually, I still do. Not because of any altruistic desire to give those producing the music more money, although that’s a nice bonus, but because of the horrifying thought that the music I love may just disappear from the service one day. You know what I’m talking about, BILLIE IDLE fans! Plus I like to listen to all my music offline, along with a bunch of stuff that was never on streaming, idol and non-idol.
But hundreds of “Your Spotify Wrapped” tweets on my timeline every year shows that I am in a very small minority here in still using the iTunes store. And the amount of J-Pop fans in the UK using the iTunes store must also be quite a small number. I did buy that REBEL REBEL EP but given their relatively low profile it seems conceivable that I may be the only person in this country that did. Is it possible that one sole purchase is enough these days to get something into the top 50?
Yeah my mum was always insisting I eat fruit and stuff, what are parents like?!
There’s two of them. They are Yunipi (pink) and Zousui (purple). They’re from Aomori prefecture, right up on the northern tip of Japan’s main island. And that, readers, is all I know. Not much to fill an article with but – hah! – they are called HUSH HUSH after all!
Some questions have puzzled our finest minds for centuries. What is the meaning of life? How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? Why is Ed Sheeran popular? Who are the maddest idols?
Well this week we attempt to find an answer to the last of these examples. Three groups claim to be MAD, and together we are going to pick one of these to be the ultimate Mad Idols!
Yes the Monday Match Game makes one of it’s occasional re-appearances to settle a paramount question to the team at Homicidols. Long time readers may dimly remember the Match Game as a frivolous and, if we’re honest – pointless, contest where we take two things from the idol world which share some superficial connection and encourage you to vote for the one you like best. And we have a chuckle and then forget about it and don’t even look at the results because they aren’t important.
Well this one is important! There are now two idol groups going around with the initialisation MGC and it’s giving me a headache in the Team Chat. Therefore you, our dear public, must decide which of the two following groups gets exclusive use of this three letter abbreviation on the pages of homicidols.com.
Hey, it’s the return of the Friday Fun, currently running a reduced service every 52 or 53 Fridays. Here we are at the end of 2021 and I think it’s safe to say that collective optimism for the forthcoming year is possibly lower than it was twelve months ago. But we’ll always have idols so let’s entertain ourselves today by forecasting their actions over the forthcoming centi-century.
First though, let’s see just how psychic we all were this time last year:
There are many things to love about idols and one of those things is the peculiar names that some of the groups go by. From BANANA MONKEYS to KAQRIYO TERROR ARCHITECT, we’ve seen a lot of these over the years but in 2021 we have noticed more weirdly titled units than ever.
We have selected ten of the more
ludicrous eye-catching ones and put them in this quiz. Hell, we could have done twenty but we’re sure you’re busy people. Can you find the genuine idol groups?
Hi, Homicidols readers, it’s me, experimental DJ and former fun-sized idol, Tentenkö*! When I’m not recording myself farting into a washing machine or painting odd creatures onto T-shirts, I like nothing better than to sit and think about my favourite number, ten. Sometimes for up to ten hours! Today is 10/10, a very special day for me and to celebrate I present ten of my favourite idol Top Ten lists, which I am cerTEN (certain) you will enjoy!
* Tentenkö is an original Homicidols.com character creation and any resemblance to any former BiS idols is purely a deranged product of your slanderous imagination.
It’s a busy time for You’ll Melt More!‘s Nerun. Fresh from releasing a new mini-album and MV with the rest of the group, she has seemingly undergone successful separation surgery from her conjoined twin Nani, with whom she was formerly fused at the kawaii, and has now launched a solo project – Nerun Poku Poku – with three simultaneous singles.
There really are some preposterously zany idol group concepts out there aren’t there? From trainspotters to onion farmers to er, trampoline scissor fighters, probably – but imagine if some visionary based a group around the concept of actual singing ability? My friends, conjecture no more and come meet “three-part harmony” idols, Machida Girls’ Choir.
