Seems like during this slow idol season we are only able to muster a podcast every two week. We usually then end up with too much and end up cutting an item or two…. usually videos. This was this weeks offering.
In the news this week:
- Amou Tenri is withdrawing from Cure.
- Yura, Miyako, Rei and Rin formerly from Guso Drop appear to be forming a new group.
- NEVE SLIDE DOWN are disbanding.
- NECRONOMIDOL to tour the West Coast of America in December.
- Former DEEP GIRL member Riico is forming a new unit.
- WACK and Scrambles to release a self-cover album to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of WACK.
- MIGMA SHELTER release second single “Amazing Glow”.
- Oyasumi Hologram to release 3 EPs in November.
- Dots release a very unique third single.
- MAPLEZ announce details of their 8th single.
- Kaqriyo Terror Architect preview new song “Yubikiri Genman”.
- Oyasumi Hologram preview new song “Mother”.
We also share our thoughts on MVs from Mistress, DISDOL, TENTENKO, REGiNA KiSS, MAPLEZ and HAMIDASYSTEM.
We are also available on Stitcher, Pocket Cast, Google Play Music and iTunes.
Multiple audio formats available of all our podcasts at archive.org.
Happy days are here. Everyone’s favorite ultra-dark idols will be doing a tour of the west coast of the United States. Full details are still being worked out but as it stands now there will be shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle. The tour window will be December 15 – 21.
Excitement for this NECRONOMIDOL tour is already very high in the community and it looks like show turn out will be very good, at least judging social media comment sections.
We will publish a full tour announcement when full information is available, including venue details.

Oh, thank the EDM gods, we got a little sneak listen of a track from the upcoming 「17」 from Oyasumi Hologram. Now we don’t cover Oysm much arouond these parts, but dang it, when they put out a sample we are going to let you know. We are just the nice.
I have been seeing a good deal of hate for the old WACK crew lately. I think it is just people being cranky because they don’t know brilliant marketing when they see it. Anyway,this information came out today which I found very interesting and thought you all might as well. I figure nobody was really paying close attention.
So this popped up on Twitter without any warning. Just one post with an image and nothing else. Now these are four of the former Guso Drop members, at least judging from who the account is following. Namely Yurapiko, Miyako, Rei and Rin. Nobody knows exactly what this is yet. Speculation is that it will be a new idol group. By the looks of it they will be called BURST GIRL. There is no further information yet. Just the below post.
The life of an idol group can be fast and unpredictable. Sometimes the acts you think are going to last just end with no warning. This is the way it is with idol. You always need to be prepared because stuff like this just comes out of nowhere.
OH MY GOD……. OH MY GOD……. This may be the greatest video I have seen in quite some time. I am not even joking. I already loved mistress, but now there is no denying that they are neck in neck for my top spot.
Oh, This video is not for the faint of heart or weak of mind. It looks to be rated R-15+ in Japan, so pretty much rated R.
………………. You have been warned.
EMPiRE……. the next big group from Junnosuke Watanabe. This is what we have all been hoping for. We were told they were going to sound “cool”. Still trying to figure that one out. Anyhow, new song on the old Soundcloud.
Kaqriyo Terror Architect brings us one of the famous two hour windows for a preview of their next offering. The song is called ユビキリゲンマン and it will be released on the next single. The release date is November 29th, so we still have a bit of time to wait.
Here it is:
Waka decided to make a video for the song Magic Inside. She cut together a bunch of footage taken by all the girls in the group as a sort of documentary of their time together. I think it was a very nice thing for her to do and I hope it stays up for a long time.
I am not going to ramble on about this so here you go.
