It’s Friday again! How’s it going?
Last week we took a look at the best of #IdolPets; And I totally forgot! Sorry guys.
Praise our beloved dark lords for opening their international fan club to the rest of the world. Necronomidol work so hard at including the international fandom alongside the native fans, something that in the world of alt-idol, is usually too costly or difficult to achieve. Aside from Babymetal, the international market seems like a lost cause for even the most mainstream groups. And with recent Western idol coverage being less than favourable (to the point where one such instance is even a Letdown Of The Year nominee!) being a Western idol fan can feel a bit lonely sometimes. And idols trying to make it overseas isn’t something new either. In fact, idols trying to cater to a possible American demographic resulted in one of the most infamous TV flops of all time!
What the ever-loving hell?
That’s of course not to say idols reaching out to the rest of the world will never happen. Babymetal achieved worldwide fame to extents that nobody ever expected. Events such as Next Music From Tokyo has brought attention to several Homicidols favourites and reaching out to the international fans has so far worked incredibly well in Necroma’s favour. Let’s hope more acts will soon follow suit!
So this week, we’re going to imagine a future where any and all idols make as much of an effort to reach towards us, the foreign demographic. How would it work, or, how would it spectacularly fail? Tweet your ideas with the hashtag #IdolAttemptsAtGoingGlobal. Thanks to the good dude Ricky-san himself for (likely unintentionally) inspiring this idea, go check out Necronomidol’s Patreon already!
