Help Bring IDOL NEVER DiES to a Theater Near You!

IDOL NEVER DiES, the crowdfunded indie film about chika idols battling zombies and rival idol units at the end of the world, premiered earlier this spring and has been playing in select theaters around Japan. We’ve been covering the project since it’s inception since the cast is a veritable who’s who of Homicidols including Brazil and Rere (MIGMA SHELTER), Rutakame Run (MELON BATAKE A GOGO), Hachigatsu-chan (ex.

The project has now launched a phase two of crowdfunding with the new goal of adding English subtitles to the picture so it can be screened in overseas film festivals.
