Welcome to the new (c. 10/2012) home for my translations of Japanese music artist Ringo Shiina’s lyrics, fan club newsletters, interviews, and news. Translations for the songs she released as part of Tokyo Jihen are also here. Only translations are provided, no Japanese kanji or romaji lyrics. To discourage theft and re-posting elsewhere, which is not desired, the translations are posted in image form.
This section is currently incomplete but I am now in progress on posting brand-new translations and information starting from the beginning of Ringo’s catalogue of work! There should be updates at least monthly, if not biweekly or weekly, so please check back!
Please navigate from the left sidebar of the main page and click on single/album titles in order to search more specifically. You can also use the Ringo Shiina category tag to navigate, but the songs will be out of order. On the left sidebar of the main page, under her category, you’ll find a list of tags with names of her singles and albums, as well as Tokyo Jihen’s singles and albums. You may also view all lyric translations, view only interview translations, view only fan club newsletter translations, and view only news translations. Lastly, there is a miscellaneous section for songs she wrote that were performed by other artists, or songs that had no release on a single or album.
I do not accept submissions and I only post my own work here. Everything will eventually be updated so that all of the songs are up.
If you are a Ringo fan, please consider joining the Electric Mole Forums, where I’m an administrator.
Please enjoy and respect the rules!
