So it seems that she's gonna be producing the Olympics handover ceremony at Rio this year...

She's a national icon, y'all~

She's *partially consulting* it. Seeing as she's a woman in Japan it probably means she just sits in and listens in on the meetings.

Maybe that's what the other committee members *think* will happen, but I'm betting she'll find a way to leave her mark.

If there was ever any doubt she's angling to run the show in 2020, this should put it to rest.

I hope she does...

But... Reality.

Unfortunately, Japan does not seem to have caught on with equal rights as much as people like to admit. You only need to look at the Enon/Becky situation to see it staring you right in the face. It's really sad in this day and age.

However... I do hope she makes the Olympics her bitch. Something makes me doubt it though.

Her first hurdle is staying relevant till 2020. How many more jingles does that mean? Heaven forbid she do something with integrity else sales decline.

If she does end up performing at the Olympics, I seriously hope she doesn't fucking lip sync or just cheap out and do NIPPON again...

Oh, I know they haven't. Knowing that makes what Ringo *has* accomplished just that much more impressive.

(In fairness, much of the US has the same problem - not trying to point fingers here.)

I can't imagine she'd want to be involved if she wasn't going to at least try to make her presence felt. I guess we'll see if she succeeds or not.

This latest move makes me think she's not looking to perform at the ceremony in 2020 - she's looking to write/direct/produce it. If that is her aim, something with a little more cultural significance might be a better option than writing more commercials.

Can't wait to play "Where's Waldo starring Ukigumo" during the Olympics!

Hi guys! I am new here and just would like to find out if anyone knows whether Shiina will be having a concert in Japan in 2016? I'm hoping to go to Japan for holiday this year, and what better way to to experience Japan by going to one of her concerts!

I have been a fan since almost 12 years ago after falling in love with Stem after hearing it during the movie Casshern. I figured i ain't getting younger any more, so i think it's about time I watch her perform live! I absolutely love her (duh, that's why i'm here haha).

No. People should be making new threads for new news in the Main Forum. No mega topic. Let the mods move threads later when they have time.
