Me too... I hope that Amagasa/Kachuu no Otoko/Hiyori-hime are the last songs out of this Variety-esque bunch...

Scared is not the word... It's more... "Expecting".

ringo usually doesn't let her fanclub hanging, as long as there is some sort of the release on the horizon its easier for the fans to stay with it and in on it, so I expect that news of new material will probably come around the time Ringo Expo drops. After that release there is nothing on the horizon so they have to give the fans something else to look forward to otherwise people will forget about ringo and jihen most likely.

Hime Hiyori and Amagasa fall to me within the Variety umbrella, but I think there is no reason to assume anything about another Jihen album, I mean you have Kyouiku to Adult to Variety, so there is no reason to assume the forth installment won't be as uniquely defined as the other three.

For some reason, when the new TJ song is released, I see the general consensus being this, for some reason that I cannot back up with an explanation:

It's not a bad song, better than the songs on VARIETY, at least. Reminds me of x (Solo-Shiina song) a bit.

Very simple. Any song Shiina writes will remind you of a past work, that's almost a given. Any song Shiina writes is better than any song on Variety (aiight, OSCA is good, but that's about it).

This song appears to me as a mix between "blackout" and "senko shojo".

But, even it's rather nice, that won't be remembered in my head.

Even if Variety is not so pretty; it contains many songs i love. And "Hiyori-Hime" does'nt worth neither "kronekodow" nor "kingyo no hako". I put this song at the same level of " tsukigime hime" : this song is pretty, but not more.

It's a likeable enough song. Not great, but not too bad either. At least it breathes new life into the forums, and stops us from getting bored from the lack of news.

I don't think Hyori Hime is a bad song (i like it a lot), but Shiina could have done a fantastic song and she made a regular song : /
