Well, I was about halfway through doing my own version of this (in draft mode since Thursday, so shame on me anyway), when I saw that John had all the detail aligned in a more up-to-date thing anyway, so go let the man educate you. Me, I’m just glad that Waka is in fact doing things.
Also, the odds of me typing out “ANotherЯ” very often are low, so expect to see lots of references to “AN.” Continue reading →
You guys, it’s Golden Week. I love Golden Week — so much happens! I also hate Golden Week for the same reason. Would you believe that I originally wanted to publish this almost a full week ago? Madness. And yet, here we are.
Idol projects, like superheroes, are never guaranteed to stay dead, no matter how gruesome their demise. I bet that if a snap of the fingers wiped half of all idol from existence, a good chunk of them would still find a way to return even without the intervention of some cosmic power; it’s just the way that idol works.
That being said, I currently know of at least three idol projects that are on their way back to life. Continue reading →
Disclaimer: I was giving up on Living Dead I Dolls. It’s not that they don’t do anything — they do a lot! — but that they weren’t doing very much that made me want to talk about them in this context. But then they added this little sucker to Soundcloud, and I got excited for a minute, and then got un-excited for like three minutes, but:
Sorry, guys, that’s probably not the best reaction to LDID’s little teaser that they put out at noon (Japan noon!) ahead of their show tonight, and I’d have preferred to have something cute (clever-cute, not kawaii-cute) to say about it, but this sucker just keeps growing and flying and then:
Oh, happy Friday to me! We just kind of recently got a nice chunk of live video out of Living Dead I Dolls, and now they’re ready to really put themselves before the world with their first MV. I don’t think I need to say for what, given that you’re clearly a literate person:
I’m kind of rooting harder for LDID than most because they’re one of the very first idol projects that I’ve gotten to experience from their literal very beginning, and it’s been educational to see them develop (positively) and get to the point where they’re publicly releasing material (positively) and other than looking like they could maybe stand to have a sandwich or something, everybody seems fine. So far! It’s idol; the members could be kept chained in a basement for all we know.
Well, this whole thing started off with me going to share this post from John, but then suddenly there was a whole lot of video and there was another Straight from Japan joint and I couldn’t cleanly consolidate them so … one Homicidols.com post!
Living Dead I Dolls! Getting a little invested in their debut was fun a few months back, and then they debuted and then nothing. I mean, yeah, they were doing lots of shows, but it was a video-less existence, and what they sounded/performed like was kind of a pain.
I guess I could only take the Romero reference so far with this one, huh?
Nonetheless! Living Dead I Dolls are still a little bit away from their debut, but they have a look and they have music, and cross your fingers and throw salt over your shoulder and spit into the wind and/or whatever it is your do to ward off the evil dead, because:
So while it seems like idols are dropping left and right at times, there are also enough debuts percolating around to keep things interesting. And remember how Living Dead I Dolls popped up a while ago and it was like, oh great! More new idols of the living dead?
Well, there are going to be even more new idols of the living dead!
