Wow wow wow! And I love that cover! Really excited for this. Release date is just 10 days after my birthday. Perfect! Just placed my pre-order. I also noticed that the new blu-ray is much cheaper from Amazon JP, so I might order that sometime soon.

Can four dates be considered a tour?

Is the B2 poster most likely just the cover art folded up like SAPS Koroshiya Kiki Ippatsu? I rather like the latter up on my wall despite not yet getting a professional to work out the folds and properly frame it, so might consider this one as well.

Two thoughts on this release:

1. I think it will be very Ringo yet very Jihen sounding, because the original versions of the songs by Tokio, Puffy, Chiaki are basically pop-rock Ringo, and I see some producer names who arrange music for idols and Avex. I personally love my pop-rock Ringo over boring shit like Saisakizaka.

2. I'm really annoyed by these recent Ringo releases that focus too much on "fancy", oversized, digipak packaging. Regardless of how good the music is, 11 songs for 3240 yen is bullshit, 2300 yen would be more like it. On top of that, they can't be bothered to include Shoujo Rebot? And I bet the B2 poster is folded and won't be flat on the wall.

Has there ever been a Ringo album release under 3000 yen though? I don't see the big deal here...

Saisakizaka is probably in my top 3 favorite songs that she wrote for someone else in the past 5 years.

Am slightly miffed that a lot of the weaker songs written for more 'popular' artists were covered here. Where is that Ishikawa Sayuri song! Maybe that release was too recent for a self-cover. While I like a lot of the stuff she wrote for Chiaki, ketteiteki sanpunkan is, to my mind, one of the worst choices for inclusion.

Am in total 2 minds wrt Cappucino. On one hand it's my favourite song that she wrote for anyone else, EVER, on the other, it's gonna be produced by Kobayashi snoozefest Takeshi. Lame.

Like others are suggesting, and the fact that the title is "逆輸入 ~港湾局~" -it may be possible that a second album of this type with the other songs may be released later in the year. One not too far out rumour I've read is that the next one may possibly be an airport theme (as this is a seaport theme). That may be the reason for the 11 tracks and many major exclusions. Maybe.

Edit
:
Cancelled the order with Amazon. Simple reason: they do not offer the B2 poster, which means it likely is external, not folded. CDJapan it is.

On the Amazon listing
"※Amazon.co.jpでは購入者先着特典のB2ポスターは付きません、予めご了承下さい。"

Also: Not getting it from HMV either. They DO offer the poster BUT it's "FOLDED FOR SHIPMENT"
Yeah. CDJapan it is, they roll that shit up :-p
