[ringo] Dec. 2006 Ringo Group Newsletter   Leave a comment

How are all of you members getting along?
We bring you December 2006’s monthly report, Kougyoku [Jonathan apple].

It’s already December. Something that makes us totally driven by feelings that for some reason or another it’s now or never. As Ringo Shiina fans, even more than the sense of urgency that a year is ending, we’re in a mood of, hurry up and come, New Year. Yes. Because early next year, Ringo Shiina’s raging rush of releases is lying in wait. The single, the album, the premiere of the movie “Sakuran [Derangement].” What was hurriedly added to that is the notification the other day from Kihin Kakumei Sokuhou [Noble Visitor Revolution Newsflash*], that “Dai-ikkai Ringo-han Taikai [Very First Ringo Group Convention] – Adults Only” will get DVD format treatment. Made to focus on such topics in this period of time, we can think of it on the contrary as even unkind, but this brilliance is exceptional.

* The Ringo Group members-only bulletin board –trans.

This monthly report, Kougyoku, will of course introduce you once more to information about the above-mentioned releases. A mini-interview with Ringo Shiina, “Hikensha no Heya [Test Subject’s Room],” will also be a part of that same flow. The contents will be about the release rush and the Ringo Group Convention DVD.
They are all very major subjects. We shall display them grandly.
That said, please enjoy the monthly report, Kougyoku.

[ringo] Nov. 2006 Ringo Group Newsletter   Leave a comment

We bring you November 2006’s monthly report, Kougyoku [Jonathan apple].

So the contents remaining in obscurity were something like this? Yes. What Ms. Ringo had worked hard on for a long “work period” was film music and a new single that developed from that, and there was a new album. Certainly, with this timing such a volume of news will arrive. Moreover, for this occasion it will not be as Tokyo Jihen but as Ringo Shiina. Our fannish interest won’t run out at all.

Now, the monthly report Kougyoku this time will completely introduce you to the finally clear new developments from Ms. Ringo. Stemming from “Sakuran,” many topics are ripening.
Also, we tried changing the plan for the customary Ringo Shiina mini-interview “Hikensha no Heya [Test Subject’s Room].” Up ’til now, we’ve implemented a design of “10 Seasonal Songs” regarding the period of a special event, but this time, under the name of “[Ringo Shiina] will publish her fall 2006 musical harvest,” we got Ms. Ringo to tell us about her recommended songs for this fall.

That said, please enjoy at your leisure this month’s issue of the monthly report, Kougyoku.

We bring you October 2006’s monthly report, Kougyoku [Jonathan apple].

Fall has intensified. With every rainfall, summer continues to get farther away. It’s already become almost a month ago, but with the long-awaited live DVD “Just can’t help it.” going on sale September 6, I think that gratified all of you fans for a short time. So, after that. It’s too bad we are unable to look at the activity from leading Ringo Shiina to Tokyo Jihen at present this fall. However, we will await the certain launching out after remaining in obscurity. For now, for a short time, let’s all wait–we will, too.

[…]

There is an interview feature in this month’s monthly report, Kougyoku. The mini-interview with Ms. Ringo is fundamentally the same, but as this time it’s an interview about her fall 2006 state, we tried to ask about a lot of things about what Ms. Ringo’s current status is. We decided to do a special interview with Toshiki Hata too at the same time. For Toshiki Hata, who we believe has been devoted to treatment since confirming a bone fracture, how far has he recovered, and how has he been getting by in life? It’s a valuable interview for both.

That said, please enjoy at your leisure this month’s issue of the monthly report, Kougyoku.
