This was a busy week, gang, and it was also a bad one. Guso Drop. DEEP GIRL (though anybody could have seen that coming). Losing Kerrie to “Splatoon.” I’d just as soon never do it again! We inevitably will, though; idol idols on, and I think just about everybody likes video games.
Anyway, good stuff! PassCode MVs. A really neat look at Dots and their creative process coming up in a little while (plus the look behind the curtain). The Friday Fun, which is hugely ambitious and may also reveal how you really feel about idols. QUEEN OF THE SCENE, for which nominations close today, you bunch of weirdos — get your input in before I start making idols do virtual ladder matches next week!
What Were Things That Happened, Maniac?
Screaming Sixties was on TV again. Their fans performed the greatest Wall of Death of all time:

If you’re ever like, “I really like Maniac and would like to buy him a present,” you could do a lot worse than this stuff from BiSH:

My favorite thing about CY8ER is Fujishiro, a giant among idols, in those kawaii-to-the-point-of-tears outfits:

I translated ano's latest instagram post. Little reminder that loving a group isn't enough to support them, but we westerners can't do much. pic.twitter.com/zmI7LTkPw0

I’m still on the fence about BiS’s new look; I love it, and I hate it:

Wonder no longer what PiGU is like live with two members, neither of whom is Rino but one of whom is still Keikarin:
Fun Fun Fun, aka the best thing about Bokura no Oyugi, aka Ruru Summertree, aka a person too talented and cool to constantly be stuck in the rut of the scene, dropped another track the other day:
I’d love to write more about this in general, but have you had a chance to come across Pinky! Nora and Petra, one of the most remarkable East-West idol connections I’ve ever seen?

Potential similarities to Linkin Park completely coincidental
