The sound quality was great. The actual setting was ok at best, which I will say upfront is being nit picky since she is so talented. But her messy desk was distracting and only having some foil curtains in an otherwise plain room was quite boring. I would have loved to see a better setting or just better detail in her room. It would really bring her performance a step up.

With the existence of D4DJ and it having a degree of popularity now, who’s betting on a rise in DJ themed idol groups? I could see more people actually bothering to learn about equipment/the cheap alternatives and learning a little bit about music instead of coasting by on feelings and dreams alone. I’ve appreciated how the anime/game is slightly more “realistic” in regards to how groups work. It’s no 22/7 or Wake Up! Girls, but it sure is a heck of a lot closer to reality than Love Live

>> No.10630791

All it does is check to see if you’re subscribed. It’s no different to when you presave something to spotify.

I get they want subscribers but that's such a dumb marketing strategy to me. Is this like supposed to be a special privilege thing before putting the actual video public?? Why wouldn't you allow your stuff to a wider audience to find it and decide if they want to stick around?

hi, spreadsheet anon here.
i work on the spreadsheet when i receive emails asking to input/update certain groups/soloists/etc. don't really have time to go out and input the hundreds of dead idol cosplay dance groups from instagram into the spreadsheet.

It's super common for Patreon supporters to receive early access to full videos, whether it's for music videos, artist comics, etc. Any industry.

But I think it IS... super sketch to make people subscribe through this third-party site to see a -trailer- for their new music video... Why not just use something like Patreon at that point...

>> No.10630916

They actually covered this in today's Q&A. It's because the whole group wasn't safe to meet during Covid.

Alexa has both shots now, hopefully the other members can get vaccinated soon. I liked the solo song, there's nothing wrong with one or two now and then.

>> No.10630918

Covid kept the group from meeting up together. They talked about a new song at their IdolCon panel that features all six members, but likely won't have a video until everyone is vaccinated.

Makes sense to me.

My dude. I'm literally not complaining about having to subscribe. It's the THIRD PARTY SITE that bothers me. Why not just ASK people to subscribe?

The reason I suggested Patreon is because it's an easy way to distribute a secret link (which is what the third party site does).

But the site they're using asks for permission to "manage your YouTube account, including posting comments", which is what makes it sketchy.

I literally have no argument about actually subscribing to their channel.

I don't really want to oust my business email to anyone from this forum, but none of Vancouver, BC's idols are on this list.

NonSweet, ShootingStar Idols, and Girls' Secret should be active on that list. Not to mention Seishun Youth Academy, Boyish7, IdolDaze, Zeus, etc.

But if you're too busy to update the sheet, it might be worth it to stop posting it at the top of each thread here? Maybe I'm misinformed, but that seems unnecessary at this point.

Definitely not denying that! The show has a better portrayal of the work that individual members of a group of any kind need to put in for things to be successful. For example, the mixer/DJ has to match BPMs, create a setlist that keeps people interested and excited, and work with the composer on originals; the composer/keyboardist has to make the transition from piano to digital, learn how to write originals; the VJ/artist has to learn an entire new program to be able to create effects and posters; and the choreographer has to actually write things down instead of just freestyling.

Obviously, because it’s an anime, they learn fast and resolve issues quicker than real life, but I find it to be a better look at how western net idol groups have to produce things (even though they aren’t DJ groups, obviously).

I agree, it's annoying how much data mining or whatever is everywhere. I think the girls are just trying REALLY hard to reach their subscriber goal and I respect that hustle. They want to reach 500 subscribers but are only barely above 250. They could try an old fashioned way of trying to gain more like constantly shouting it out and sending reminder dms to their following.

>> No.10631323

Damn this looks and sounds beautiful. I'm excited to see the whole thing. If they made this teaser more easily available to people, that would probably garner more hype. Unless they're just waiting for the hype when they drop the music video, because sometimes teasers will gain more views than the actual music video. Really interested in seeing how they keep moving forward.

In other news, Ally & Sally's big announcement was that they're going to start streaming on twitch. On that same Instagram post they mentioned how they lost a lot of their self-esteem within the past year. I really wish we could find out what happened with SYA. I'm also very curious to see where they go musically if they continue to try making original music. To see some kind of rivalry between the two groups would be interesting if possible.

how to become idol or join idol group?

I can see why anon said you’re bitching. Make a throwaway and stop whining

>> No.10631508

Are you talking about being an overseas idol, or joining a real idol group in Japan? Either way, you'll want to first focus on your vocals and dancing, and get in a routine of working on those things. You won't always feel motivated to practice, but if you form a habit, then the discipline of practicing will get you through times of low motivation. If you want to become an overseas idol (not leaving your home country, doing it mostly for fun, etc), then start thinking about your "brand", like if you're gonna use a stage name, what sort of theme/imagery you want to use (don't feel like you have to be 100% committed to a single image, though), etc. If you really want to join a group, look for what groups exist in your local area and make sure you have transportation and funding to participate.

If you want to move to Japan and become an idol there, don't worry as much about the stage name and branding, just make sure you speak fluent Japanese, are really thin, and can move there with the proper visas to start going to auditions.

spreadsheet anon again, hi.

To give some insight, I am not the first anon to run this spreadsheet, I am just the most recent anon that decided to copy the spreadsheet and make updates to it after it was largely inactive for 1+ years. I took it over maybe 2 years ago at most I think. I still think the content within the sheet is worth posting in the thread even if it only serves as an archive and not a sheet of active groups anymore. Personally I don’t think anybody has the time to actively check on over 100+ groups to see if they’re maintaining an activity standard during a global pandemic just so a 4chan spreadsheet can stay up to date lol.

Additionally, giving a list of names is actually not helpful if they’re new entries. I need their socials, etc. I’m not going to go looking for them, it’s not *me* who wants them added to the spreadsheet.

They really did. There wasn't even an official release or list of awards put out though which also is kind of upsetting. I was hoping to see who all got what and not just rely on the Livestream. Idolcon...for a convention focused on idols you'd think you would treat the showcase and masquerade better. The OIComp was way more organized even if they took a while judging. Everyone got feedback. Had adequate time to prepare. You got a list of performers and everything ran relatively smooth. I will not be attending Idolcon again. They just don't make it worth it. And while I agreed with maybe two of the awards (that I even know about) some others I was very confused by.

What were the judging requirements if a band was in the idol showcase? It’s two completely different things to me. A band won’t dance and chances are a soloist or group won’t be playing an instrument. That doesn’t diminish the band's work but it does show that the judges didn’t have any requirements to go by.

If you are referring to who I think you are then they were under fire for including videos of minors in an unsolicited critique video. I considered that bullying. But they refused to accept what they did was wrong the first couple of times.
The conversation currently is important and the main reason we talk about the separation of these terms is because when in a competition how can you compare and judge two separate things? Whether it’s instrumentalists vs dancing vs singing vs dancing+singing. It’s different and should be judged as so.

>> No.10632089

It did. Luckily my first time around, I wasn't staff, just a performer, and although I'm not good, I expected a little more professionalism from the staff and volunteers.

Hearing them rim each other about how "great" the con was is aggravating as fuck honestly. It wasn't. It was worse than DashCon somehow lol

>> No.10632103

the community treats these shows like general talent competitions. in real singing competitions they judge entries against equivalent entries only. there are winners in every category so even if there is only 1 entry in a category, they win technically. this is how any idol events should be held. if they want to do an "overall favorite" or "judge's favorite" or something that's fine, but you can't judge different skills against eachother.

>> No.10632370

I can't understand why it's so impossible to just refer to showcases with dance coverists/cosplayers/instrumentalists, even vocalist-only entries as a J-Music showcase. I can't tell if it's just the obsession to be seen as some higher being everyone adores under the label "idol" or if it's truly just come to the point where people just have no fucking idea what an idol actually is and don't care to learn or respect the difference.

Sorry to beat a dead horse on this topic, but it'd be a start to acknowledge that japanese music and entertainment is multi-faceted and can be appreciated in their own rights all together, but for those who run showcases and don't have requirements on the format of content, for the love of god can you all at least quit calling it "idol"?

>> No.10632380

I think all anyone can really do is just unfollow, don't give their content engagement, don't apply for or attend Starlight Idol Fest (until an apology or change is made at least) and just spread awareness to events, coordinators and others in the community so nobody gives them any platforms, because in the end they're just going to pretend like nothing happened, so.

>> No.10632533

I agree, I also think that anyone else who has also had viable problems with them (with proof) should come forward. There should also be more public statements from other idol groups. Silence is complicity and I don’t want our community to be okay with this.

Anyway Kazu is just waiting for people to forget about Kuri’s livestream and then she’ll come back with either a new dance announcement or hide behind Swittx since she hasn’t done anything.

I really hate “fans” like you.

If your idol is known to be problematic and a bully, why would you enable them by still supporting them and refusing to hold them accountable?
Multiple people have tried to come out with allegations against both her and washu, and it’s their dismissive ness and fans like you that make them fall back into the shadows. And don’t even think about saying “I didn’t know”, the archives exist and you can easily find it with a keyword search.

Stop enabling these horrible people so we can carve out a decent collective ffs. You can still be a fan and hold her evil ass accountable.

And anyway, I don’t believe you’re a fan for a second so there’s that.

I think idols who hate their fans are worse than idols who know how to perform and entertain. I've only seen Kazu perform with Tambourine once, I don't really know what else she is in or who washu is, I just skim these threads for news of groups I like. She seemed fine to me, if anything I respect someone who actually cares about idoling since a lot of people I see perform suck. Kazus face isn't my type but I wish more people cared like her.

I don't know why your community can't just be normal and oust her if you want without involving everyone and their mom. In other entertainment communities people just write people off as bad apples and avoid them. Why does this have to be a big deal? It looks like this is being pushed for drama by people who want to be petty and can't separate their feelings from their performing hobby. Maybe focusing on taking yourselves more seriously would help the community instead of whatever this is.

You say you like idols. Yet you also say you respect someone who has caused real trauma and bullied idols to the point of quitting/wanting to quit this community. Sounds like you need to be better informed about what is going on behind the scenes. Kazu isn't a good person because she can dance. Kazu is a bad person because she and Washu are emotionally abusive and have harmed a very very large number of people in this community. People are loud about this because they are hurt and want to see justice. They are tired of enablers like you shrugging their shoulders and pointing the finger back at the victims. Kazu is not an idol. Washu is not an idol. They dance to be the center of attention, for ego and fame and tear everyone down around them as they claw their way to the top.

Word of advice, if you want to say "oh this person can't be bad because I haven't seen it" make sure you actually look into what they have done. Like someone else said, there are plenty of archives to look into. This is very dismissive and harmful to the people in the community that those two have hurt.

Seriously, I've seen it time and time again. An idol fucks up and y'all surround them so they end up thinking concrit is bad.
I can't stand y'all and I really hope y'all expand your damn horizons and realize we are flawed entertainment who isn't above being called out or criticized.

>> No.10633757

I never said I support Kazu, like I said she's not someone I stan. I said she seemed fine, not exceptionally talented or anything, just okay. I don't really see the big deal as a completely neutral party.

I respect people who are willing to step on toes to give fans a better experience. If that's not who people want to work with, why does that mean she should stop existing? Why can't people just avoid working with her if it's so negative? Toxic people are literally in every community and it doesn't seem like she's killed someone or something, she just seems like a bitch... Why is that a huge deal? I don't really care if she's a good or bad person, if you do and don't want to work with her just don't. Why do you need justice? This notions seems like you're trying to make drama instead of actually improve the community.

Also if someone being mean to you makes you want to quit being an idol... thats what 90% of this thread usually is, so... doesn't that make you horrible too? lol

I said they seem fine as someone whos seen them perform and knows the basic gist that Kazu is a bitch to work with. Why does that matter to me, as a fan? Why can't idols just stop working with her? Why do we need to "cancel" her just because she hurt people? I don't get it.

This is embarrassing

I don't think concrit is bad, the opposite actually. I'm saying this seems like unnecessary drama. If Kazu is too difficult to work with and she is a huge bitch, I want people to stop working with her. I just don't understand why someone being a bitch to others in groups makes them publicly cancellable in the idol community now. If the real purpose is to "improve the community" this doesn't seem like the way to do it at all. |

^ again, I'm a fan. I don't know a lot about how idols work behind the scenes besides what I'm told.

>> No.10633768

Here’s the flaw with your argument. Nobody likes them and the fans don’t know that let alone know why. Going deeper you act to defend her yet if she treats other idols horribly it’s only a matter of time before we find out she probably hates being an idol and hates her fans.

>> No.10633835

I think you’re missing the point morally. It is NOT good that a performer would be “willing to step on toes to give fans a better experience”. The people we are talking about are grown adults who should be able to communicate and work with their team members to give their fans a better experience. Nobody is saying they should “stop existing” they just don’t want more people damaged by these two.
>Why can’t people just avoid working with her if it’s so negative?
Kazu specifically is going to be a huge part of Anime Weekend Atlanta’s idol show this year. There really isn’t an escape from that if a group wants to perform and she has that kind of representation.
This is all much bigger than petty internet drama.
> If the real purpose is to "improve the community" this doesn't seem like the way to do it at all.
I don’t know about you but I would rather not have a toxic person welcome in a community if I can help it. If we all represent the idol community as a whole, what does it say about us that we would allow that behavior?

My biggest issue with this whole Kazu ordeal is how Switt has not given a comment about it. She is now part of Tambourine, and has not denounced Kazu's actions but we all expect Poppy to do it and that's the end of it? Switt is just as complicit right now, and she's the one that has been hosting SIF for the last few years when she was in Danzoo. People need to go to her and tell her that nobody is comfortable with Tambourine hosting/headlining SIF because of Kazu's actions. I'd like to see her respond without defending Kazu.

As someone who knows how performers work behind the scenes, you do not want to support the divas because it enables their shitty behavior.

It would be a shame to lose OIC, I think this was only ever meant to be a lite server, if a full one were to ever be launched that could be what the community needs. Both Overseas Idol Con and the Winter Idol Festival were very good so I'd definitely like to see more OIC run events too

What would an all-original idol community entail beyond a discord server and gatekeeping the cosplay chuds out? Would it be better to have separate spaces by region? Organizing your own monthly/quarterly online event like Idol Variety Virtual Stage?

It's a very good track! The MV is coming later, there is an MV teaser out now. The concept and melody are great, most of the lyrics are very well done, but they still carry the feeling of being forced to fit melodies tailored for japanese speech patterns. I think that is what makes the awkward spots like >>10638039 (you) mentioned. Still it's amazing that they get to work with a japanese producer like Shun! The only net idol songs I've as much are from Phoebe's lastest EP.

>> No.10638289

I think they’re holding strong to not releasing the MV until 500 subs but I think that’s a mistake. They should release the MV and do milestones like they did with Merry Xmas Kiss. They realistically don’t have the traction they need to get to 500 from simply asking.

The song has its strong parts, but a lot of it isn’t very good to the ears.

Calina has been active as an idol at US cons for years. Released several original songs. She did do a few streams with a vtuber model for a while, I guess that might have been a trial run or portfolio builder?

As someone who works in this industry, a lot of you really need to curb your enthusiasm. Is it exciting to see her on the show? Yes, is it going to amount to anything? Likely not. Being on a reality TV show isn't glamorous to begin with. While it may get her some followers and she can piggyback on the hype for a while, you need a strong personality to get anywhere, and she's not the kind of person that normies give a shit about in the first place. Looking at the other contestants, she seems to only be on the show to fill the quirky weeb nerd role. She's playing a caricature of herself for entertainment, that's how these shows go. Even the way her profile was written was in a cringy obsessive way designed to entertain normies. People who become famous from these shows need to be marketable and have mass appeal and she really has neither.

She locked down her social media just before the show went public so I don't think followers are the goal here.
I do think you are right about her chances. She's far too reserved and socially awkward and nice to survive a crab bucket game like this. Kinda slightly worried that she'll come out of it traumatized and even more self-doubting than before.

I don't think you guys really know Calina. Remember she's a musical theater need? I'm sure she'll be able to up the drama. Even if she doesn't win the show or get far, she could still play herself up to be some kind of memorable character.

She could literally steal the show if she got some chances to sing. I expect the producers will put a stop to it if they feel it doesn't fit the "cringy weeb" caricature they have designed for her.

Big Brother contestants arent allowed to sing because of copyright issues:
>CBS makes a ton of revenue from its reality television show. If house dwellers started singing songs owned by other people, those people could sue the network. They could at least ask for a part of the profits.
>To avoid this conflict, CBS doesn’t allow anyone to come close to singing music owned by other people. In fact, to avoid any hint of a conflict, they ban singing altogether.

>> No.10641621

After reading a few Reddit posts about the topic, it seems like the contestants can sing but only if it's original songs that the contestant made up. It is up to the producers to allow it to be broadcasted though. Here's an example of someone singing:

I used to watch Big Brother with my mom every summer as a kid, and have seen some of the newer seasons as well. It’s crazy to me that someone from this community is going to be on the show. Don’t think everyone should be getting hype about what this will “do for her career” but nevertheless it’s exciting just to see her there. Having said that I’m VERY interested to see how people’s perceptions of her change due to the show. If you don’t know they film the contestants 24/7 and constantly have the live feed going on the CBS website, so even if certain things don’t get broadcasted on TV, you’ll be able to see e v e r y t h i n g going on with her in their day to day life in the house. Very interesting.

So do we think Calina will be the first to get cut? How far will she likely make it?

>> No.10641956

Nicole who was on last year’s season got to the final 3 despite being the token “shy and nerdy” person, albeit she was mostly used as a pawn or skated by because she wasn’t seen as a threat. Which can only get you so far, I’ve never seen a floater win.
So unless she has some extreme physical strength we don’t know about, it comes down to whether or not Calina can make alliances with the stronger members of the house, and whether or not they think she’ll be useful to them. Calina says her strategy is to be a floater, but one of two things happen to those kinds of people. If you’re not useful, you’ll be stuck hanging out with the other non threatening people, and get voted out in the first couple weeks. If you are useful, they’ll keep you around and use you as a pawn, and then stab you in the back when one of their friends is the other person on the block.
The games in Big Brother are either physical, or have to do with the houseguests’ memories of what happened previously in the house. Most of the HoH competitions are the former, which is the most important title to win as that is who puts up people for elimination. The way I see it is she needs to get in with the “cool kids” ASAP in order to survive, and I just don’t know if she has the personality for that.
However, there are other prizes and titles you can win throughout the show. The girl I mentioned earlier Nicole, she won “Americas Favorite Houseguest” which scored her 25k. In many of the games played throughout the competition have the opportunity to get prizes that you receive even if you don’t win such as money or vacations.

>> No.10641964

Same anon.
Imo her goal shouldn’t be to win the entire competition, but to make it to about week 6-8, after which point eliminated houseguests are sent to the “jury house”. The jury are the group of people who decide who wins out of the final two, and clips from the jury house are broadcasted on tv from time to tome as well. If she can make it that far she has a good chance of winning the “Favorite Houseguest” title, if her personality on the show is likeable enough.
But no I highly doubt she will win, or even make it to final 4. Small chance of her making it far enough to get into the jury though.

I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what she’s banking on lol.

But again, she’ll have to make it far enough in the game to get that chance.

Good for getting to jury. But if she makes it to final two it would be hard for her to make her case in a final two speech because modern BB juries haven't had much appreciation for the classic strategy and instead prefer to crown winners who had flashy moves during the season.
