These were the only interesting posts, imo. It honestly seems she’s trying to play victim.
I’ve heard she’s bullied a few members out of the group (she’ll deny it and make it seem like they were crazy) but I don’t have a lot of information on that.

idk why the texas idol community has so much drama, but it's entertaining to me so I can't complain.
Tbh. That is fair. I didn’t know about the LN thing. I had know PS to be pretty elitist for a long time, despite kinda being pretty boring for their last little spurt. I liked their Vocaloid thing but it just died and that was disappointing- it was really refreshing.
The only pure ones are Tanoshii. Bless them. Protect the beans. ;3;( ;3;)

BOOHOO IM QUITTING COSPLAY
turns around with new group
u ain’t slick
I said in the comment if you read it that I wasn't Bunny. Why would I be Bunny and let people know that I was a former member and not Bunny. This is the first time Ive ever been on this website so forgive me for not participating correctly but I'm Kat. Hi nice to meet you.
I was the former Ruby but it's okay if i'm forgotten. I've never been called a white-knight before so that's exciting…
I'm just letting you know what I believe in. It'd be nice to move on and everyone be happy without hearing about all this negativity, that's all.
Whiteknighting your friend doesn’t do anything. Just because she wasn’t toxic to you doesn’t mean she isn’t toxic.
Also, this is lolcow, if you don’t want “negativity” don’t come here.
Are you really so dumb to reach out and defend someone who has said shitty things even about you behind your back?
Bunny has done and said nasty things about everyone in start splash and the members who have left. She may have treated you well to your face idfk but that doesn’t mean she’s not nasty to others.
And your attempts to protect her and stand up for her are falling on deaf ears. The amount of people who agree about the drama she’s caused were enough to get this thread created. Stop trying.

Are you blind or is the bar this low anon? Only 1 or 2 of these girls are pretty at a push. The Ruby looks like she puts the pig in pigii.
Honestly, this is absolute crap.
I agree things can get toxic but there were several members who were extremely toxic, and still are.
I don’t think one was bullied out but it got messy for sure. The whole idea of people leaving because of being ‘bullied’ constantly is not true. Disagreements happen.
I’m tired of people defending members of SS and past members when they refuse to own up to their toxic and elitist behavior.
Bunny has issues yes but I think she uses them as a crutch to do bad things. This isn’t highschool. You can’t say things like she does then blame it all on issues that she isn’t actively seeking to get help for. Period. At that point it’s a crutch.

The only questionable ones might be their Chika and Hanamaru, but the Hanamaru just quit. Individual photos of them are posted though and in western idol standards, they’re really pretty.
Start Splash came from a group called Wild Stars that disbanded a long time ago.
Only I think their You, Chika and Yoshiko were the ones that came over in the transition.
The original group was of Blynn, Liz, Megan, Maddie, Stormie, Bambi, Kat, Bunny and Ally.
Only people left are Blynn, Megan and Bambi who are the You, Dia and Mari.
I’ve heard a lot of things from former members but there is some stuff that’s was posted publicly if anyone has screenshots:
1. One of the members posted something really shitty about their original chika on their Instagram story
2. This was posted on 4chan a while back with screenshots. They made a Instagram story of former members in hilights. Their second chika asked them to take it down because she didn’t want to be associated with them anymore and they didn’t. Apparently they sent her a bunch of shitty messages? No screenshots of that though. She then posted about how toxic they were and deleted her account
I know about that.
They posted her as a graduate to not make things more dramatic on both sides and she asked to take it down, and they did. There was no drama other than that, that I am aware of.

DEFINITELY looks like she has downs. Now you’re just being mean anon, probably mad you don’t look that good.(samefag)
He felt like the Chika was trying to take his group away from him or something like that. I know the Chika, from what I've seen and have heard she has stated that she only wanted to offer input, not to take over the group. Call me biased but, I believe her. She left because of the drama in the group as well as personal issues in her life.
She can be brash as fuck (I've experienced it first hand even) but I don't believe this "Chika bullied the group" narrative. A few members wanted her back and have made amends with her even before Bunny put all her personal business out there.

it's like there's this thing if "net idol shit" isn't taken seriously enough then performances come out cringey vs if it is taken too seriously people still a problem with it
apparently, there's no winning here
i don't see an issue with people taking it seriously. there is absolutely no problem when people are trying to improve their skills and getting better, irregardless if it's considered a "niche weeb hobby"
some niches eventually turn out to become bigger things based on the contributions of the community and right now there's just an oversaturation of mediocre shit.
still see a problem with it*

This honestly just seems depressing and not very noteworthy, why does everyone in the western idol community seem to constantly selfpost or make obvious vendetta posts?
I'm a bit suspicious about a quite a few of the posts in this thread and the lack of actual milk.
The western idol community is just… like that
There are way too many idol groups actively competing for a limited amount of public attention, so half of everyone hates each other

Well people kept complaining about all the drama because half the people there don’t care and just wanna check the content so a lolcow thread was suggested for a while. Guess someone got fed up and finally did it
What’s the deal with stellure? They’ve been building hype on their insta for what feels like forever and then they turn around and announce they’re disbanding?
There's some speculation that the group members had a falling out since some of them are still going to continue performing, with 3 forming their own group and one (possibly two) going solo.
>They’ve been building hype on their insta for what feels like forever and then they turn around and announce they’re disbanding?
It would have been much less jarring if they had announced before all the hype that this was going to be their final performance before disbanding. It doesn't seem like they had plans to disband at that time and something only just came up>>36838

The group that she’s talking about is Project Infinite Entertainment on IG.
Currently they do Vocaloid ?
tia is still together with her boyfriend?
she graduated vantan now
That's kind of what I got out of it too. The ages were 17 and 19 so I think that's safe under the law and kind of a shitty reason to kick someone out.
I'm a big fan of one or two of the cosplayers in their group but the ones I don't really know or follow seem to be the delusional ones.
Just because they helped advocate doesn’t mean they were good advocates. Everyone in the New England community knows how toxic
Idolized is but nobody will speak out because they don’t want to be targeted by them.
Hi, I am the ex-idolized member about the dog surgery! normally i would ignore this kind of stuff but i figured i should share my end of the story before rumors and misconceptions about what happened spread. I think this was about 4 years ago if I remember correctly? Originally I was supposed to do an all day cosplay with Idolized but my friends had invited me to be part of a panel. I’ve never been in one before so I asked the group if it was okay for me to step out for about two hours and then jump back in. And the result was not what I was expecting. The group got mad at me and 3 members openly admitted to talking behind my back about lack of commitment to the group and it felt shitty. I felt shitty and stupid for even asking and I remember crying about it to my friends. So, I told my friends that as much as I would love to do a panel, I can’t.
My dog had to get chemotherapy and a surgery so all the money I had been saving was gone. I was working on average some 30 hours a week while in school and that wasn’t enough to cover the costs so I had to axe some outfits from my lineup. Unfortunately I had already paid for the hotel and badge, etc. so I had decided to go to the con anyways. I told Idolized I couldn’t do the cosplay anymore because I needed to put anything and everything towards my dog. They were “fine” with it but you could tell that some of them weren’t happy with my decision.
Around this time, my other friend had to drop because of money and he had an anxiety attack because he saw how the group had reacted to me. I guess to add worse to the matter, my mom had surprised me with a cosplay from my wishlist because she knew I had been not feeling great. It was the cosplay from the panel. Sometimes I still wish it had been the idolized cosplay.
After the con I remember I had seen the idolized instagram page post that they were looking for a new person to replace a certain idol. I was that group’s certain idol. They never told me. They never said anything or warned me or asked me. Just one day I was gone? I didn’t have the stomach to ask anyone either out of fear of being attacked again so I just cried and moved on. A few months later I started to talk with some of the members again and we’re good mutuals now. I think I went to one of their performances? Idolized has a group of wonderful people but only outside of Idolized. Maybe it was just like a bad roommate situation. This happened at the very beginning of idolized. I don’t know what happened to everyone else but only 2 of the original 9 stayed. I guess the rest of us were voted off the island haha. I don’t do idol groups anymore. In fact, i don’t even do idol stuff that much anymore and if I do it’s by myself or on my own terms. I don’t want to go through that again. Maybe they thought I was lying about my dog? I’m not sure. The only thing I know is that it took me a long time to not feel guilty for not doing the cosplay in order to put the money towards my dog. On the other hand, my dog’s chemo didn’t work and she passed away three months later so maybe I should have just accepted it and cosplayed with idolized.
Either way, I don’t live in the area and have no intention of coming back so it’s no longer my issue, and I don’t have anything against the members. I do hear stories from time to time though of other members that have been given the boot and it feels like nothing has changed but I don’t know. As for the ex-idolized members, we made a group chat just to comfort each other. I don’t know how but a good chunk of people that left seem to carry this guilt of some sort. We all ended up walking out in tears but the one good thing that came out of this is I really have met amazing people. So thank you, Idolized.
That's too bad. I figured the Eli and Nozo might be nice too. It's interesting to hear.
The Maki, and having their partner join with auditions as Umi sounds like a total shit show imo.
File: 1556211724483.png (688.48 KB, 634x629, Oops.png)
this is their Eli, does she seem nice?
I mean as someone who has struggled with people making fun of them on top of also having terrible social anxiety like she does, I kinda get her frustrations? Plus that was on her personal I assume, since it looks like an insta story I havent seen.
I mean idk, like yeah the way it's worded is a bit off putting, but I can also understand the idea that she's just trying to feel better in a way .
I'm kinda neutral on that example.
Nozomi is notorious for targeting other Nozomi cosplayers and telling others behind their backs that she’s a better Nozomi than them when she looks like she’s 20 years old than the rest of the group. Eli is worst of all, posting things like >>45097
and others about other idol groups on her MAIN instagram’s story.

Two members of Idolized are having a performance this weekend, (and starting a new group?) perhaps some tea will be spilled considering they were the last big topic of the thread.
omfg is claudie really
still doing this shit? i haven't spoken to her in 5 years!
She’ll do whatever it takes to stay relevant, even if it’s joining the group most widely known in new england to be toxic
. Haven’t seen her tripping on the cgl aidoru thread in a while, probably afraid to show her face in case Idolized gets mentioned there again and she gets well deserved
call outs for being an attention whore like last time.

I was curious so I checked idolized's insta and found the post that announces 2 members graduation and I'm kinda surprised it has such an uwu lovey dovey tone. Given what I've heard about people getting kicked out it seems really two-faced and fucked to pretend everyone is on good terms.

Fuck Darling to death. Their Ota performance was lame ass shit and they got an award for it then they have the balls to go and say they were "so tired after everything we put into this darling performance day (rehearsal, craftsmanship judging, regular photoshoot, pv filming and solo dance filming Not to mention the actual masquerade itself!" You dumb bitches don't even realize most of the masq participants were doing that shit.
I fucking hate them and I hope they eat shit and die.(a-logging)
Darling is just as bad, if not worse, than Idolized. Seeing a post like >>60815
isn't a suprise or vendetta.

Yes, along with Idolized's Eli.
It seems like Darling is basically a scheme to win as many masquerades as possible by recruiting a ton of members and entering as many competitions as possible. I'm guessing this makes a lot of other groups salty.

I remember Claudie defending the two weird bearded Ruby and Dia dudes that everyone (including me) has experienced as being disgusting and creepy so I dug in the archives to find it
she was good at constructing her own costumes (on the outside), but always lazily made the rest of stellure's. but lately all of her sewing she's done with darling has been hot garbage.>>62125
Anon your friend should ask for a refund, even a partial one. If your friend isn't 100% happy with her commission and has to use her own time/resources to fix it then she deserves at least SOME of her money back so she doesn't sink more money into a garbage pit. I've done partial/full refunds as a seamstress myself and while it's disheartening to know the work you did wasn't 100% your best, it's better than a client slandering you all over the internet for refusing a refund. Which will be warranted if Mimi does refuse to give your friend a refund.
so did this happen or was it made up so we'd feel bad for claudie?>>63974
showing up to as many events as possible and posting regularly on social media, and having some members with pre-existing popularity.
NTA but I get what she means, even if you wks don't. LL is popular with younger female fans and being cringy and lewd in character and directing towards those fans is bad road.
No one was every complaining that they are sexualizing the characters, just that they're trying to make lewd cosplay aidoru shit look appealing to their underage fans.
I don't understand how a thread about cringy weebs who do shitty dance covers is full of so many wks. Any net-idol group is going to be the cringiest group of weeaboos ever. ALl of them are mediocre at best, yet put themselves up there with real idols who sing and dance and make 100ks a year. It's embarrassing and defending them is even more embarrassing.
You don’t have to double post, calm down. I didn’t miss it, i just have a problem with the second part. I haven’t experienced it so i can’t really form an opinion (this thread isn’t exactly reliable information).
Also even if their profiles had to do with being idols, gravure idols are absolutely a thing and these girls photos are way more tame than some actual Japanese idols. I have a feeling you don’t know much about idols at all or Love Live, since one of the new girls personality literally revolves around her sex appeal.
>>64700>I don't understand how a thread about cringy weebs who do shitty dance covers is full of so many wks
Prob because the /cgl/ threads are already circlejerks for wannabe net idols
The best/worst ones are the ones who go all in on making themselves waifus and then get triggered
when stereotypical creepy older guys show up to their gigs. Like bitch how do you think idols make money in Japan? Love Live is literally the
stereotypical creepy virgin nerd fandom over there
Rith hacked into their e-mail. She lied about having done it until they checked IPs to see who had recently accessed the e-mail, and it was traced back to her. She even e-mailed A-kon staff after the fact trying to demonize them.
Which is why TIF didn't get a panel.
This is not true.
No one backed anything and if they did, it was hidden from the original SS members.
If Rith did it of her own accord, she should be held accountable- not the group.
You don't have to try and cover for yourself, you know.
Blynn already came out and said that it happened. You'd be at a loss trying to find any proof to the contrary. Why do you think TIF didn't get a panel?

So some context here, since everyone is just throwing out hate with no caps or context, way back when with the confusion in akon ownership changes they accidentally sent out acceptance emails to everyone who applied. Then akon had to go back and correct that, and EVERY local idol group got waitlisted. TIF, SS, ProStar, everyone. So there was a lot of stress going around as to what was going to happen to everyone. So then this event called Otaku Overload happens, Start Splash is there performing. Word gets around that someone from akon staff partying with the group told them that they would try to pull strings to bump the group up on the wait list because they thought they were cool people. Concerned between all of the changes in staff and ownership that bumping groups over favoritism; Rith reached out to a friend on staff for advise on if that seemed problematic
or not. The person looked in to it and reassured her that the staffer at otaku overload was there specifically to scout for cosplay contest half time show talent and it was unrelated to the panels and just a miscommunication and not to worry. To which everyone moved on about the topic. This was all before Rith was even invited to be a part of TIF staff.
Weeks later, Rith is now on TIF staff, Blynn (SS founder and You) starts interrogating people. Freaking out on and accusing everyone, even people who were never associated with the group, of hacking their Instagram to frame them for leaking emails. Really just a lot of nonsense.
So I have no idea what sparked the whole witch hunt a month later, but it was before Rith was even staff. If something else other than Rith asking a friend for advise happened I’d be interested to see screen caps of it. Otherwise it sounds like a classic Blynn meltdown where they get on 4chan to vent anonymously. They did the same thing to their Chika last year.

Here’s a cap showing Blynn saying that they were framed by someone hacking their Instagram. Rith doesn’t know the head of akon, that’s not who she emailed. So idk what his meltdown was about.
Blynn has always had an irrational fear that everyone is out to get the group when honestly, nobody cares. He just tries so hard to keep and the group relevant.
Don’t get me wrong, they work hard but not hard or better than anyone else. I am so tired of hearing about this but there is some serious dirt on some of the remaining SS members.
I think almost everyone in the community would agree they’re sick of talking about start splash. Most people call them “the group who shall not be named” because if you mention them it’s starts a whole shit storm.
But every six months or so people mysteriously start talking shit about ex members, and accusations start going around that someone is trying to “tarnish their name” or “frame them for something.”
No one cares, every ex member just wants to move on, and no one wants to talk about them anymore.
This, everyone bumping this thread is someone just connected to who they are bitching about.
There’s so much that has happened that is worth discussing for laughs or cringe from other groups but the same groups are discussed here.
I think my point was misunderstood. I said almost everyone. SS has burned a lot of people, they’ve cycled 8 team members in two years (Liz, Taina, Olivia, Bri, Whisper, Rith, Kat and Bunny, then Liz again), only one of which left on good terms. They’ve also had members piss off some other groups. Then once you include friends of offended parties; there is definitely a large group of people that are very bitter and would gladly come and dish dirt.
My statement is to say ALMOST everyone else is over it and just wants to ignore them.
