It’s Already Friday for Much of the World, So Let’s Get #NewIdolArmy Started

Well, team, today’s the day that we turn social media black and white in honor of BiS. Why do we do it? Because so much of what we love probably wouldn’t even exist if BiS hadn’t come into the world six years ago, hadn’t run roughshod over idol for three-point-five years and gone out on their own terms. What they spawned, that’s all the fun and drama that we hold dear.

And they’re back! Only Pour Lui still persists from the original lineups, but it’s still BiS, and goodness knows what happens from here. Their music, their antics, the sheer force of personality involved, it’s all thrilling. We’re living a moment here, people.

And that’s what #NewIdolArmy is all about. Japan has been celebrating the return of BiS since Brand-new Idol Society 2 dropped on Wednesday (two consecutive top-20 days on Oricon!), and BiS and WACK are basking in that domestic glow. But we, as international fans, we can show our love, too, and that’s what #NewIdolArmy is all about.

What Are You Doing Tomorrow for #NewIdolArmy?

I told you that I was gonna hump the hell out of this! And hump I shall. Yes, friends, tomorrow is the big day, the day we turn social media black and white in honor of the return of BiS. Your shirts, hats, print-outs, profile pictures, banners and so help us all whatever else you come up with will go right toward BiS, making a gigantic statement that we might not be in Japan, but we’re out in support and please come tour our countries!.

For if you want to turn your own Twitter/Facebook/whatever profiles IDOL:

And remember, we’re trying to organize a similar effort for PassCode’s “MISS UNLIMITED” and seeking feedback!

I’m going to open a thread in the Idolmetal group in the wee hours of Friday morning, and everyone who isn’t on Twitter is encouraged to post their pics there; I’ll move them to Twitter along with any short message you want to send.

And if you are on Twitter, remember to include @BiSidol when you’re showing off your pics!

And regardless of media, remember to include #NewIdolArmy!

So what do you have planned? Continue reading
