Your Homicidols Weekender #397

As Zuukyun June fades into memory, I see that we only managed to crank out a quartet of Weekenders this month. It doesn’t seem quite right, becasue we have actually been workign really hard on some cool stuff that will be hitting the site soon.   Please look forward to it.

In the meantime, while we endure the heat of summer, tickets are now on sale for one of the hottest shows of autumn:

The US leg of Isiliel’s world tour powers forward. If you can’t make it to one of her live shows, she’ll be livestreaming tomorrow from the home of the Jersey Devil.

OMG have some nice new outfits to go with their new song and MV.

I was hoping to see Mercuro when I visit Japan in October, but it appears they have sold out all of their shows through December.

airattic gets upbeat and math rocky.

Chika legends nonayu and usabeni have combined forces (again) for a new single.

The heavily underated verotica release a sweet new single.

 

Over on the Homicidols Discord server, Bob is Random introduced us to electro-rock unit, Garnear who just debuted last month. Their debut single is a guide to picky eating.

Traditional + rock unit oirandochu strike with this bolt of lightning.

Let’s check in with EuropaDelic who have been persevering through some personnel issues. 

Idol In Focus: Phantom Siita

This week, almost every mutual whose musical taste I respect sent me a link to the debut MV by Phantom Siita. The retro-horror themed unit is the brainchild of, and produced by, solo vocalist, Ado, and their first song, “Otomodachi,” is composed by Koharu, the accordion playing half of musical duo, Charan Po Rantan.

If that weren’t enough to get you to press play, the MV has been kindly subtitled in English just for us.

Not too much is known about the five members of the unit. They do not (yet, at least) have individual Twitter accounts, and their faces have yet to be shown unobscured. The auditions for the group called for applicants between the ages of 12 and 20, so the only thing we can really assume about them is an age range. Based on the quality of their debut single, it is also clear that they have substantial vocal talent.

This ambiguity and semi-anonymity shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise from a group produced by Ado, an artist who has never revealed her face to the public. She made some headlines a little over a week ago with her unique approach to her first handshake event. She will conduct it concealed in a box with a hole in it through which her fans will insert their hands.

Oshiloss Corner

Nyanmona was fired from Clara Magura for repeated “violations of the law.” Specifically, underage smoking.

Kaguya Mikazuki is graduating from CALETWOLF on July 12.

Miyu Koeda with graduate from PAPIPUPEPO wa Muzukashii in November so she can try some new jobs outside of idol.

Oshifound Corner

Scream and cry: It’s a PV from the last live of Minna no Kodomochan.

Kyoka and Hazunya of the recently disbanded END OF MISERY held their pre-debut as new unit, Addiction Angel. The full debut is set for September.

If you are still suffering from MIGMA SHELTER withdrawals, Brazil will be appearing in a talk event. There will be a livestream.

Have a Good Weekend!
