Sure, if you completely ignore Mayakashi Yasaotoko and Noudouteki Sanpunkan.

@Maou
Right, duh!
Maybe Carnation is an example of that then? Maybe nothing on the Carnation single will end up on the album.

I will admit I just do not see the appeal in Sanpukan as others. (It seriously doesn't even seem like a good tame rnb song. Anyone else?)
However, Ariamaru Tomi is a great song. Mayakashi is perfectly fine, in context. The way people overrate this song in particular reminds me of when people were equating Adult to KZK. Let's be fair.

EDIT: I said something positive. Why do you people insist on making me go negative? Q_Q

I'd take an album which had Ariamaru Tomi coupled with an acoustic rock version of Carnation (like Discovery). Actually them two songs would work great together.

But you know, I'll take whatever, she's the only current artist in Japan besides Togawa that I really care a lot about.

As it goes, you could also stick 'A Separation' onto that album with Ariamaru Tomi and acoustic Carnation. I don't know why they released it as a Jihen song.

I hope she announces something on Sunday. Will happily be reckless with finances and/or become a rent boy if it means that I can see SR live. It’s a tangible utopia for me. mortgage wife kids car? meh.

I almost spit out my drink. Is she contractually obligated to release at least one album a year? because it seems like she has. except for in 2001. when she was pregnant.

^You forgot 2005. That's ok because Education was released Nov 2004 and Adult Jan 2006, so they're pretty much one year apart.

All I know is that she is not lazy, crazy, and unproductive. She looks like a lady that can get things done.

She released/was involved in a fair amount of *new* material this year really...

2 digital singles (Between Today and Tomorrow, Jiyuu e Michidzure)
1 album of songs for a play (Ichigo Ichie)
2 full length new DVDs (Discovery and Bon Voyage)
1 Live album (Tokyo Collection- featuring a "new song")
1 Bsides compilation (Shinya Waku- featuring a new song)
1 Mini album (Color Bars)
1 Compilation DVD- Chin Play Kou Play- which had previously unreleased on DVD/Blu Ray stuff.
1 SMAP song

Phew, yeah I'm pretty sure that's all of it... correct me if I missed something.

So that's really an album and a bit's worth this year...

Sure a new Shiina Ringo full length would be better than all of this combined, but there's really enough new material here to hold me over :-)

I'm actually hoping next year there might be a little less"yen-sucking and drinking", I had to stitch the new holes in my wallet by October time this year :-p
