I’m sure you are sometimes lying awake, wondering, “OMG, there is this adorable girl I see in this idol group, ◎◎-chan! Might… might she be what others call an OSHI?” (•̪ o •̪) We here at Homicidols have your back. c⌒っ╹v╹ )っ
Don’t fret, only take this short and sweet little quiz to find out!
Another Fox Day aka April Fools Day has come and gone and we are none the wiser for the experience. As followers of idol units who regularly pull inexplicably unbelievable things on any given day of the week, April Fools Day is always a bit confounding. I mean:
Are RAY really releasing a chiptune single? (no)
Is Especia really reuniting after 4 years for an anniversary show? (yes, they are)
It seemed like the new PLANCK STARS cast announced about an hour ago felt like a bit of a desperation move, so it will come as a surprised to no one that the whole lineup was suddenly and unceremoniously dumped at the last minute for a much more promising option.
Just as the curtain was set to rise on the new system debut live, YABACUBE announced that PLANCK STARS will be moving ahead as an all all-star duo consisting of:
While the countdown to the debut live of the new PLANCK STARS system continues to tick by, YABACUBE has again found themselves in the position of having to recast the unit from scratch. While their strategy of hiring seasoned veterans appeared sound, they quickly learned that there is a downside to hiring a bunch of idols with lots of units on their resumes: while they may be long on experience, they are short on attention spans and don’t tend to stay long with any single group.
While we were just adjusting to the sudden replacement of every member of PLANCK STARS earlier this morning, it seems that the punk idol unit has now gone and set a record by imploding twice in a single day. Shortly after announcing the revamped line-up, the new PLANCK STARS system fell apart without making it to their debut live which is still scheduled to take place in just a few hours. It seems that the AI-generated TiDNE had traded her image as an NFT on a dodgy marketplace that went bankrupt and she suddenly vanished as her link on the blockchain expired. Neil deGrasse Tyson then bowed out after realizing he had signed on to an idol unit and not an astrophysics research venture. Soon after, it was learner that PiiPii TOPGUN had been arrested for underage drinking while in math class. Meanwhile Mouse Lemur ran off into the woods with Continue reading →
In a surprise move, punk idol unit PLANCK STARS announced this morning the sudden graduation and replacement of all current members, effective immediately. Apparently, shortly after their latest album “Ochi ω Rema °” hit #1 on the Oricon Daily charts, the members asked for contract modifications. Instead of capitulating to their idol’s new demands, YABACUBE replaced the entire line-up with high quality cyborgs. This plan was going fine unit Rairai-bot-chan reconfigured Richan-bot to download porn. The resulting rampant infection by computer viruses quickly spread among the androids rendering the entire group inoperable.
After a lightning audition, YABACUBE unveiled the new PLANCK STARS system that will be debuting at a reboot live later on today. So, let’s meet the new members!!
April Fool’s Day falls somewhere on the idol holiday ranking spectrum between Halloween and Twin Tails Day, though an argument could be made that more energy and creatively goes into getting a rise out of fans with excellently crafted jokes and spit-takes than into the rest of idol’s annual cycles combined. And as it should be! We here at Homicidols Dot Com clearly enjoy having fun with (and often making fun of) idols and the self-serious loutishness that all too often adheres itself to the scene.
That said, nothing says loving quite like idols embracing the spirit of the day and going all-out in the pursuit of laughs, even at their own expense. And nothing does that better than Oyasumi Hologram absolutely knocking this out of the park:
What’s funny (not in the way that they intend, or maybe!) is that this nods directly at the stripped-down, lilting ethereal work that’s Oyaholo’s calling card at even their rockin’est, but folks who know are well aware of their collaborations with VMO and how frighteningly well August-chan and Kanamil work in a black metal kind of framework. So it’s like a double piss take!
