It’s been a packed week for me with work and school and fancy idol blogging. Our visionary founder is still off on his honeymoon and Team is starting to realize that, between the six of us, we can almost do the work of one Maniac.
In addition to working on refreshing some of the static content around the site, we have started the planning for the annual Best of the Year competition. We are up to 179 potential candidates for Best Single alone, so things might get a bit nuts . I can’t wait!
In the meantime…
WAGAMAMA RAKIA keep giving us what we’re all here for.
While Jyujyu say what we’re all thinking.
Save the date: KAQRIYOTERROR are broadcasting a free livestream with special guest, Nonamera (fmr. KAQRIYOTERROR)
Meanwhile, if you can get to Sweden this November, you can see GARUDA, NEMLESS and our eternal Queen SARI in person.
SJPA is proud to present the Japanese artists for Alternativfesten in Sweden 2021. NEMLESSS, SARI and GARUDA! Main stage on November 13 and merch sold November 12. Check out https://t.co/oSJ4L1ua4i for details. pic.twitter.com/IwaPvPo2r4

Earlier this week we treated you to current You’ll Melt More ! member Nerun’s trio of solo MVs, and now we have this offering from post-YMM! member Ano…
And also late last week, Younapi debuted a new song written by none-other than Urbangarde’s Temma with an arrangement assist from RAM RIDER! Talk about a power trio!
AQBI is holding auditions! Placement opportunities are for MIGMA SHELTER, NILKLY, and a brand new group in the planning stages. Of course, while this is exciting, it also brings us to speculate on….. who’s possibly graduating???

Seoul-based NEKIRU are so good.
And speaking of Korean idols, you should support Kizuna Simulation‘s new Bandcamp page! While the group might not be the exactly the sort of idols we usually talk about on Homicidols(dot)com, they’re quite terrific and well worth your time!
While over in Europe, the Goddesses of ERISU introduced their sister witches: StryGo!
