If you’ve been keeping up with the news, both regular and idol, you’ll probably know that Abe Shinzo issued a countrywide order temporarily banning all large scale public entertainment events because of Novel Coronavirus fears. ZOC cancelled their entire FINAL INNOCENT ZOC tour, Aya Eightprince cancelled a smaller public appearance and Pour Lui cancelled the shooting for her upcoming idol group’s music video to name a few. Things have been cancelled harder than a celebrity who’s angered a kpop fanbase.
Currently, WACK are meant to be embarking on their nationwide WACK FUCKiN’ PARTY tour but alas even Watanabe Junnosuke who has objectively more clout than the prime minister can’t get around a ban on public events.
Just kidding, yes he FUCKiN can!
2/29 18時〜 WACK TOUR 2020 “WACK FUCKiN’PARTY” NO AUDiENCE LiVE 生中継ニコ生で行うことになりました。プレミアム放送はなくどなたでも見れます。 よければご自宅でお楽しみいただければと思います。3月1日も何かしら用意できたらと動いております。 よろ。https://t.co/G2t3FpWPcp
This Saturday at 6pm JST, the show will go on! NO AUDiENCE LiVE is exactly what it sounds like – nobody is going to be there. You can’t cancel a public event that isn’t a public event. The entire thing is going to be broadcast on Niconico so everyone will be able to be there in spirit. A premium subscription is only around $5USD too, so hey, if you’re spending your time indoors as a health precaution why not spend it with the idol fanbase’s favourite women’s prison colony?
It’s been a rough week for a lot of people on Earth because of the you-know-what, but in a dire time things like entertainment are what make it manageable! So, cast aside your worry, wash your damn hands regularly and enjoy your time at home.
And if you’re in need of a little something extra, BiSH and EMPiRE made a few previously limited broadcasts available on their YouTube channels as a sorry for cancelled shows too.
Remember, while this is a lot of fun content for us overseas, fundamentally it’s a sorry to people living in a country that’s tightening it’s grip attempting to deal with a pandemic, so remember to be respectful! Or if you’re living in a country that’s going through the same thing do what you want, we’re not the reaction police over here.
After a failed crowd-sourcing effort to think of a headline that wasn’t terrible, the team here at Homicidols have decided to lay it on you bare bones style, much like CARRY LOOSE do in their new video where they burn to death and become floating skulls.
That’s right! The self described “cool and emo” idols from WACK are back with the video for their first single, dropping on the 11th of February. Just in time for Valentines Day! If your lover doesn’t appreciate the vocal prowess of YUiNA EMPiRE, break up with them and spend your gift money on cheki instead.
In an effort to stop Yumeka Naukana from talking about aliens again, this song is all about the denizens of our very own planet Earth. The verses are mellow while the more upbeat chorus features a proud proclamation of the amazingness of humankind. This isn’t your typical WACK ballad, these girls are here to lift your spirits without a hint of melancholy~
If you’re itching to see how the song sounds live but have the displeasure of not being in Japan anytime soon, the annual ONAGAWACK performance is set to be livestreamed on Nicovid next Saturday. If that’s not enough to get your interest, MAMESHiBA NO TAiGUN will also be performing their one song then immediately leaving again. We stan.
Feeling really unmotivated, folks, but sometimes the best therapy to facing the idoling loss of two of the most important in it to you as one of your favorite groups disbands is to force-listen to and then share via your fancy idol website an ongoing mess of new material from a successor of the group one of those favorites founded almost a decade ago and then the other favorite joined a few years later. You know?
Yeah, I thought that the huge-ass Weekender Idol in Focus entry was timed well enough to sufficiently put a cap on this smorgasbord of individual track releases from CARRY LOOSE, but boy is my face red now! So let’s cope together with this new MV of theirs and listen to it all and download. Continue reading →
You know how I pondered last week about whether or not CARRY LOOSE would make free song downloads a weekly thing until their album comes out? I think I might be right. Come grab them while they’re still fresh, kids!
If you’ve been following the ongoing idol soap opera that is WACK this past year, you’re probably aware of CARRY LOOSE (formerly known as “Curry Rouxz” and “Oh god yet another group to add to YUiNA’s ongoing chain”). The group formed shortly after the disbandment of second-generation BiS, with its former members Pan Luna Leafy, YUiNA EMPiRE, and a kid from WACK’s “WAgg” trainee group, Uruu Ru. At the start of the month, ex-Idol Renaissance Yumeka also joined the party, and a self-titled debut album was scheduled for next month, of which its first track, Yasashii Sekai, dropped for free on dropbox and soundcloud today! Is this going to be another BiS-esque weekly thing? Who knows, but for now, just listen to it.
