Never Gonna Give You Up Up, Always Gonna Let You Down Down

Sorry, I already used “Up Up And Away” a few years back. (Thank you Maniac for this alternative headline!)

Do you remember last month, when Up Up Girls (Kari) were being awfully shady about the future of the group, promoting a “final live with the current line-up” and all that? Generally making everyone panic with the idol equivalent of vaguetweeting?

Don’t worry, that new line-up was just new members. Okay, cool. A bit odd to be adding new girls after a decade without any additions but I won’t complain…

Oh wait, never mind, they were just saving the bad stuff as a surprise for later. Everyone except Azusa are out of the group!

God damn it.

A K-Pop Double Bill

It’s not often we get to write about K-Pop on Homicidols, but we always have to brace ourselves when we do! And this weekend, we got not one, but two Korean acts dropping music videos that are actually worth at least a quick mention! Buckle up, weebs, we’re taking a ferry to South Korea!

First off is an act we’ve mentioned here a few times before, Dreamcatcher, with their much-teased promotional video for their newly-released Dystopia: Lose Myself EP.

Your Homicidols Weekender #187

Wow, what a week! Maniac’s back, Miss iD got a whole boatload of familiar faces on deck (more on that later, hopefully!) and earlier today my cat managed to catch and eat a butterfly whole! Oh, and all this great stuff too.

PS: The opinions expressed here do not reflect the entire Homicidols writing squad.

It may be a minority opinion, but allow me to emphatically say out loud that BLACKNAZARENE is dumb and boring and you should stop supporting this farce:

50 YMM MVs Day 22: Interactive

I think Maniac can put in a more comprehensive review of this video!

Hamidashi Paradise is a memorable music video for me in more ways than its memorable choose-your-own adventure style; it was my first real exposure to You’ll Melt More! aside from them occasionally sprouting up in my music feed and making me go “well, that was nice!”.

Back in the day, Hamidashi Paradise also brought up a little bit of pent-up anxiety, having just finished an Interactive Design course so disastrously that seeing anything even slightly technically-impressive brought back flashbacks of failed javascript attempts and panic attacks on presentation day! The video was also mercilessly robbed by DEEP GIRL during the first-ever Homicidols Best-Of poll (which, considering DEEP GIRL crashed and burned soon after said win while YMM! are still standing strong today, that can be either amusing or tragic depending on your general worldview).

Your Homicidols Weekender #186

On a week that was either turbulent, or boring, depending on who you ask, we still have idols to tide the week by.

What exactly happened this week, you ask?

Well, for starters, have you noticed some of the recent overhauls to the site lately? Everyone give a big round of applause for Daemon, who made all of this (as well as a lot of this weekender) possible! 

And screw it, why not clap for this stuff too:

MAMESHiBA NO TAiGUN are now an edamame themed unit, or something.

Some of You Already do This Fun on a Daily Basis

Let’s take a look at the biggest style icons of last week.

https://twitter.com/originalsatire/status/1261332193680527361

This week is another fun where you need to climb into the mindset of an idol. Whether that be your oshi, or idols in general. For this week, you’re going to tweet like one! Better get that impersonation talent going because someone’s gonna have to fill the void if Kamiya Saki deletes twitter after her graduation today!

So, think like an idol, and then tweet like an idol, with the oh-so-original hashtag, #TweetLikeAnIdol.

A New Chapter of BURST GIRL’s Story: Wakapiku is Backapiku

Calling the past several months in BURST GIRL land a rollercoaster ride would be undermining it just slightly. Starting with the farewell of original member and Guso Drop refugee Rei, the additions of two fresh-faced young newbies, the sudden loss of one of said newbies and having dozens of shows cancelled for obvious reasons. Despite all this, BURST GIRL have just shrugged it off and kept their stride, announcing a new single, and, last night, a new member.

Well, the term “new” might depend on how loosely you define such a term. You thought BURST GIRL was done employing Guso Drop alumni? Nope! Say hi to Wakapiku! Again!
