KNOW YOUR IDOL #16: 椎名ひかり (Shiina Hikari / Pikarin)

椎名ひかり (Shiina Hikari / Pikarin)

On this new episode of the Know Your Idol series, in collaboration with Idol Underworld, we will get to know the one and only idol from the Demon World, 椎名ひかり (Shiina Hikari / Pikarin).

Idols are cute, they said; they are not scary, they said. Well, the first half of this statement is certainly right, but what about the other part? 椎名ひかり (Shiina Hikari), or Pikarin for short, was probably the first idol that taught me that idols can be cute and scary. I still remember watching her going from kawaii voice to deep growl for the first time, and the fact that I haven’t forgotten about it in all these years must mean something.

In this in-depth interview, Pikarin talks about various things regarding her, such as her music, the many sides of her career and the reasons she bites and walks on people. Enjoy the interview!

TRICK OR TREAT? – Idol Halloween 2019

Halloween 2019
Let’s celebrate Halloween with a short horror-themed playlist and a photo gallery of the cutest …sorry, scariest idols out there.

There is nothing better than an alternative idol playlist to celebrate Halloween: horror punk, darkwave and heavy metal apparently work perfectly with evil witches and carved pumpkins. Unfortunately, we couldn’t include Dopechan’s rap on Nightmare Before Christmas‘s theme, but give it a listen anyway.

So here we go with Necronomidol‘s ultra-dark sound, Pikarin‘s craziest madness, XTEEN‘s horrific punk and much more; one thing’s for sure: you’re gonna have the best nightmares you’ve ever had…

In addition, below you can find some pics of our favorite idols in Halloween-themed outfits. Spoiler: Hanako-san has not been included, as she’s always the scariest one.
