50 Greatest Alt-Idol MVs of All Time: #1 – 10

We made it!! It has been a log journey, but we have finally arrived: 

Here are the TOP TEN MUSIC VIDEOS EVER as chosen by the readers of Homicidols dot com via  a long, convoluted process that has been covered in depth elsewhere.

As always, each MV is accompanied by commentary from one or more of the individuals who nominated it way back in May or June when we started this process and the Team. I’ll keep the pre-amble short though because what you really want to know is: WHO MADE THE TOP TEN?

50 Greatest Alt-Idol MVs of All Time: #11 – 20

It is the next-to last chapter in our countdown of the Top 50 alt, indie, and underground idol MVs ever as chosen by the Homicidols community, a group of music aficionados with impeccable taste as evidenced below.

Strangely, none of the videos that ranked 11 through 20 won a Best MV of the Year award, although one of the tunes did win Song of the Year. It also appears that I made an error last week in identifying “Hallellujah” by  Shihatsu-machi Underground as our countdown’s most-nominated MV with four nods. It turns out that one of this week’s entries edged them out with five. As always, commentary from the nominating parties are included below. Some of them have more to say than others.

Homicidols Best: Papermaiden’s Top Ten Favorite Idol Songs of All Time

Here is my idol song top 10. I wish I had something witty to say to introduce my list, but I’ll bare my heart in each song’s description instead. I’d just like to say that with the exception of my top pick (somehow!), I have all these songs taking up precious space on my phone because I know I’ll never get sick of any of them. If I could get them into my body for easier listening, I would. That’s how committed I am to each item of this list.

Let’s get to it!

Yukueshirezutsurezure to Disband on January 2, 2021

We ain’t got no words for this right now.

We Review Things: Yukueshirezutsurezure | Paradox Soar

It’s been long awaited. Yukueshirezutsurezure (aka Not Secured, Loose Ends) has spent a lot of time in the studio re-recording songs with the current lineup, leading to BrightDark and DarkBright. But with Paradox Soar, they prove it wasn’t reheating old content for the sake of nostalgia: the unit was being developed under the character of Mei Yui Mei’s leadership, voices were being seasoned and the good stuff was coming.

Paradox Soar, the group’s third full album, has sixteen tracks on its sole edition,  which includes all of the members’ solo songs. The twelve songs with the whole group are split equally between their single releases (including B-sides) and 6 new songs. As a whole, the album covers a wide range of territory that Tsurezure hasn’t delved into before.

There was so much to cover that Papermaiden and DAEMON had to join forces to write this review.

Let’s get into it!

MISS QUINS: Welcome to the Party of Tortured Souls

If you’ve been keeping up with the codomomental news, maybe you understand a little bit why we run our best-of from December of the previous year to November. It gives us enough distance to put the hype in perspective of all the other exciting things that happened.

And we’ll certainly need that distance as I’m hype ventilating at just what is happening in the next week. As you know, Kotetsu is transfering to Yukueshirezutsurezure and debuting on tomorrow at their biggest live yet at Club Citta. Codomomental’s new idol group, Seireki13ya (Seireki Jusan ya), will be revealed on December 15.

And despite this being overwhelming enough on its own, Codomomental really went in for the kill because they just revealed that there’s a new Tsurezure member debuting on Friday. Who is not Kotetsu.

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 26: Lull

It’s kind of dull in NSLE land today, gang. All of the action today is Tsuyame’s; I’ll skip her long chain with fans, but, much like Shidare’s dog yesterday, here’s a cat:

Otherwise, all I really got is Shidare doing … something? Continue reading
