Ahegao Ban

Thoughts on this?

While the ahegao hoodies are cringy, they aren’t actually unsafe, so I personally feel like the con is overreaching. If the purpose is to create a family-friendly environment, then what about suggestive cosplays? What about cosplays from R18 media? What about the R18 dakis in the artist alleys which are 3 post-its from being full NSFW?

/cgl/ Idol Spreadsheet (Recently updated, under new management!) - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WtgRe5cjKIR0BYGhw9N8ahxChLqEFLbZIRbAazooh-o/edit?usp=sharing

Original Music Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfmgukQM2isUtJJZz1MY4Jn4zPcbl0wDU

- Peachy Parade opens up auditions
- SIF happens at AWA and is awesome
- 2 members of Vivacu depart
- Starstruck adds 2 new members
- Keekihime goes active again with new original music
- International Idol Company @internationalidolnews is hosting a dance competition
- More groups keep getting added to HolMat's IdolFest lineup

For the starter topic, I'm grabbing a post from last thread that really caught my interest but didn't generate much discussion: does the distinction between an "idol" and a "cute performer" lie in idol culture? Aka, "The use of calls, wotagei, the relationship between fan and performer, chekis, badges, etc. at events, a combination of singing and dancing, the types of personalities of members, and more. There’s a lot of components that go into calling a person or a genre 'idol'". Do you agree with this? If not, what do you define as an idol, and how can overseas performers reach to meet that definition?
