Last week you predicted the future, but not really.
Well, last week was a downfall in and of itself!
You know what probably isn’t going to be a dud though? The new NECRONOMIDOL member(s), that’s who! After nearly six months, two auditions and a whole lot of uncertainty, a suitable replacement for Kunogi has finally been found! It’s enough to bring me out of my intended week-long Animal-Crossing-Release-Date/Trying-to-Avoid-The-WACK-Audition internet hiatus! And then you have the aforementioned WACK audition, the Melon audition (RIP) and whatever the hell Pour Lui is planning, there’s going to be a lot to look out for
So I figured, lets get hyped up a little early in the absolute best way; absolute speculation! Originally, this was just going to be a “guess the new Necroma” fun, but with the announcement of Melon Batake a Go Go’s audition, and the anticipation of a few other new idols (granted, WACK will be getting its own fun closer towards their boot camp from Hell) incoming, I thought it would be more appealing if we covered any and all groups expecting new members.
So, how unrealistic are your hopes for these new members? Be as silly as possible, as none of us truly know what, or in this case, who, to expect. This week’s hashtag is #UpcomingIdolDebuts. There’s no doubt all of us are going to be totally incorrect with this, but, no matter if we get a surprise post-graduation comeback like Kunogi, or someone who showed up seemingly out of nowhere like Michelle, one things for certain, we’re going to welcome them with open arms regardless.
A Friday Last week you (well, mostly Brian) just warmed the cockles of my heart.
Last week, we celebrated the best hairstyle ever:
Last week’s fake news was a lot more enjoyable than the real news, that’s for sure.
Hi all! Last week, I was still too busy getting everything settled in my new home, but thankfully Maniac, Supreme Nothing and co. took over to tremendous success!
Apologies in advance! Kerrie is still mid-move, so you’re stuck with the boss for today’s Fun, and I won’t even pretend that it was my idea; it was, in fact, Kerrie’s. But still, someone gotta write it!
Before we begin, of course, let’s look back at last week’s view of possible scandals in idol:
All in all, I’m disappointed in you guys. Nobody thought to use “horribly overworked iconic center of massively popular group suddenly quits and sparks huge backlash”!
Anyway, let’s get ourselves some kind of Fun. Continue reading
How was your movie night?
This week’s fun has definitely been done before, but, frankly I don’t care, for two reasons:
- The last time we did this, it was way too much fun.
- By the time you’re reading this, I’ll be in an undisclosed location without any internet, probably without any furniture, and very likely crying while surrounded by boxes. Aka I’m moving.
Idol scandals are a weird thing. They can go from anything from “this idol just got arrested” to “this idol has a similar kind of love life as any other woman aged 18 to 25” to “this idol did literally nothing wrong, but the company she works for just committed a human rights violation.” They come out of nowhere, send the whole fandom aflutter with a mixture of rage and/or sympathy, and, as much as most of us would hate to admit it, are kind of fun to watch from afar.

Last week’s fun made me emo.
Hey everyone, I’m back! I’ve been taking on-off breaks lately, partly because of IRL business and partly because last time I checked, twitter was nothing but an ongoing eruption of chaos and I frankly just didn’t want to ge involved with. Continue reading
If the last year or so has taught us anything, friends, it’s that anything in idol is possible, a spirit that you firmly embraced for our #2020IdolPredictions:
Now, for today, if you’re following the news at all, you no doubt have noticed that the world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket with stunning alacrity. It’s almost like we don’t want there to be a 2021! And at fraught times like these, it’s normal to want to turn to something as relentlessly positive as idol to cope. But here we are, three days into the new decade, and we find out that one of the most important personalities in our end of the Idolverse is hanging up her color-coordinated outfits in May:
I’ll spare you both panegyric and elegy — and definitely eulogy — but I think I speak for an enormous chunk of the fandom when I say that Saki is a person who has mattered in a way that few get to. She got her dream job as an idol with her absolute favorite (even got to do it twice!), then parlayed that into, really, five-plus years of a plaPOPGANG continuum that contributed greatly to the creativity in idol music and the individuality in the scene. Hell of a run. Continue reading
