Your Homicidols Weekender #330

This past week was an emotional roller coaster, what with Zenkimi’s Budokan performance and indefinite hiatus, so let’s focus on the future instead:

Help Himari Tsukishiro (Isiliel , NECRONOMIDOL) have a happy birthday by contributing to her birthday present.

Judging by the crowd in Oshiloss Corner, it was rough this week, and the next few days probably aren’t going to be any easier. This week is guaranteed to be an emotional roller coaster for Zenkimi fans as the yami kawaii pioneers play the Budokan on Wednesday just before retreating into a status of indefinite hiatus. Be extra kind and patient with your friends who dig Codomomental.

Sing a song. Rock N’ Roll. La la la la la la. I’ve had that stuck in my head a lot his week. It is all PLANCK STARS’ fault.

Also this week: Himari wrapped up Isiliel’s first European tour and completed the recording of her upcoming album.

We saw a changing of the guard this week. For the past couple of years, the top Google searches that ultimately led visitors to this site remained pretty consistent: BABYMETAL, LADYBABY, Candye Syrup, ATARASHII GAKKO!, Broken by the Scream and PassCode. This past May, we saw a new group make an appearance in these top results and slowly inch their way up the charts until our latest report from Google landed in our inbox announcing that we have had a change in the #1 spot. 

So, congratulations (and, “Thank you!”) to PLANCK STARS for becoming the top Google search result that drives visitors to our site!!

And speaking of the Top Tier, we had a bunch of A-listers drop new songs and MVs this week, so let’s just segue right into that:

I have to apologize for the lack of updates around here over the past week. Team is being pulled in about six different directions, and I’ve been caring for a sick cat which has me a bit stressed out. While that may not sound like the best excuse, she is a pretty awesome cat. Still, the idol world doesn’t stop spinning for any person or feline, so here’s some of what’s been going on: 

Broken By The Scream is in the US right now! They performed last night and will be entertaining Katsucon in Washington DC all weekend.

It’s a special weekend in the United States. After months of speculation, anticipation, blood, guts and tears, this Sunday is finally the big event. Not THAT big event. Who cares about the Super Bowl when the PLANCK STARS are here for their US debut!

It was a very eventful week in the global scene. Isiliel performed in France and  Germany and is now heading for Sweden to record her next album, Kasen of RILISREVERSE got her Twitter account suspended for some reason, and the South Korean live idol scene bore witness to a scandalous meltdown with more melodrama than a makjang. 

This past week was also special in that we received PVs from both SU-METAL and Pour Liu, the original queens of alternative idol. I flipped a coin and Pour Lui and  PIGGS won the honor of kicking off the Weekender.

This weekend should prove to be a lot less eventful than last when PLANCK STARS was galivanting around London live tweeting drinking parties, attempts to master electrical adapters, and their debut European live. In case you missed it, in the midst of all that chaos , their management announced that they were moving their upcoming US show from LA to New York.

Now, those of you within easy traveling distance of the New England States are in for an eventful February. In addition to Plasta hitting The Big Apple, don’t forget that Broken By the Scream are on their way to the East Coast as well. I’ll just be over here living vicariously through you all.

As I type this, PLANCKSTARS just posted that they have landed in Dubai enroute to their weekend appearance in London. I’ve seen various odds laid regarding their chances for successfully clearing UK customs. Judging by the amount of wine flowing during the in-flight meal service, bookmakers may want to adjust their betting lines.

I am back in the States after two short weeks in Japan. I saw dozens of stellar idol lives, spent time with old friends and new, and generally encountered one amazing experience after another. After three years away, I was happy to find the chika idol scene as vibrant, welcoming and overflowing with creativity and talent as ever. I can’t wait to go back.

While I recover from jet lag, be sure to get your votes in for Best of the Year 2022!! Voting closes this Sunday. In the meantime, the early entries for Best of 2023 have already started to roll in, like:
