And if you spend any time on social media, you may have noticed something happening with that idol unit/dumpster fire known as ZOC. If you’re interested in more on that drama, visit the # tabloid-scandals channel of the Homicidols Discord server.

Back to news we like:

While Isiliel was in Taiwan, she took the time to hang out with one of our favorite overseas idol units: Thailand’s AKIRA-KURØ.

If nanoayu doesn’t want to see us happy, then she needs to stop posting new MVs. 

“BABYMETAL DEATH” finally gets an official video (unless you count the 2 second video released as a DVD bonus back in, like, 2013).

POPPiNG EMO cranks out a lot of music and performs almost constantly, but they release very few MVs, so let’s enjoy this.

AKUMATICA dropped an MV to support their debut album release.  Such a simple concept but it’s executed brilliantly. Bookmark this for when we start the conversations about Best MVs of 2024.

Another unit from the class of ’23 that’s turning heads in ’24 is NARLOW.

The new FAREWELL, MY L.u.v go old school.

newradiotaisoclub put out a couple of new songs this week, including this contemplative number.

 

Fredo posted this over on the Homicidols Discord server and it sent me down a rabbit hole. Meet Yushi Tenshi (meaning: “barbed angel), a psychedelic downtempo solo idol.  

RAY reposted their Manual for Enjoying Live Idol Shows translated into English by Azusa (ex. For Tracy Hyde). They also announced that hey are dropping a new EP next week consisting of re-recorded songs.

We take any opportunity to spread the word of senosister.

BLUEGOATS gets all contemplative and emo.
