Last we heard of the infamous BANANA MONKEYS they had vanished, seemingly for good, following the graduation of their last founding member, Tenka no Chanyuki. “What now?” several of us cried. “How can we, as idol wota, possibly go on without Banamon’s primal reign of homelessness, sex work and whatever the hell that one music video was!?”
Well, you could just watch any episode of Hollyoaks for that, but if trashy British soaps aren’t your thing, you can rest easy, because Banamon are back! Sort of. The remaining members are back, with a new girl, and they’re not monkeys any more. In fact, they’re a completely different species! Welcome, BLUEGOATS.
In news that’ll make you cry either tears of sorrow or tears of joy depending on which side you’re on, yesterday we bid farewell to one of the most interesting idol projects of recent years.
Maybe it’s a cliche to say, but this is truly the end of an era.
Tenka no Chanyuki, the last original member of THE BANANA MONKEYS, their lyricist, and twitter shitposting champion, is graduating next month.
Man, remember how THE BANANA MONKEYS managed to interrupt Christmas Day last year with a music video documenting Mozuku and Tenka’s previous attempts at getting some poor suckers on board with their shenanigans?
Things seemed to take a slightly more normal turn this year when they delivered a Christmas broadcast to rival our very own Queen’s speech; that is, until you notice that they seemed to be a member short.
Indeed, immediately after the broadcast ended, we were treated to this bit of festive news; Mozuku, one of the longest-surviving monkeys, has jumped ship and retired from entertainment, effective immediately!
Hey you guys! While I am not the Official Homicidols.com Banana Monkeys Correspondent, I am the Official Homicidols.com Editor in Chief When I Feel Like It, and in such a capacity it is sometimes necessary to fill in for the official correspondents. So it was yesterday when Kerrie exclaimed “something something Banamon something something” and then found other, more useful things to do with her time. I felt tht there was plenty to all that something something to warrant a Something, and so here we are.
So: Hey, check out this new song that Banamon did!
Last time in the ongoing soap opera that is THE BANANA MONKEYS, they gained two chimps, lost one, and… actually, that’s pretty much it. Seriously! I guess after Belle Delphine stole their bathwater idea and got more fame from it, Banamanagement felt a little discouraged.
Oh wait, they just released a new music video. Never mind!
The beautiful thing with THE BANANA MONKEYS is that they never fail to stress out and confuse me.

So, it’s come to this. After promising three consecutive music videos in the leadup to the release of their new single, the conclusion of the Nani-mono trilogy finally came out today. What kind of note will it end on? A somber one? Something shocking? Or epic? Well…
Oh god, not again.
Right on the heels of pissing off Muropanako and most of the BiS fandom, THE BANANA MONKEYS have a whole new music video and… wait a second, didn’t they just release one? What is it with my designated idols and releasing multiple MVs in a short space of time?
Anyway, let’s watch.
I was initially going to talk about my recent discovery that Banamanagement, are indeed, Mad Lads. But then their newest MV came out and erased everything I wanted to say on the matter.
If that suspicious thumbnail didn’t scare you away, congratulations, your bravery shall upmost be rewarded. Continue reading
