Shiina Ringo – Netsuai Hakkakuchuu

Shiina Ringo has had a really good year this 2013 with the release of Irohanihoheto (いろはにほへと) [MV], her collaboration with SOIL & “PIMP” SESSIONS titled Koroshiya Kiki Ippatsu (殺し屋危機一髪) [MV], and the one with Towa Tei simply titled APPLE [MV].

Celebrating 15 years of her debut, she’s releasing a compilation of all her past collaborations in an album titled Ukina (浮き名) — which translates to “rumor” or “bad reputation” — that includes the collaborations she’s released this year, It Was You [MV], as well as both versions of MY FOOLISH HEART… and this collaboration, titled Netsuai Hakkakuchuu (熱愛発覚中), with electronic sugar pop mastermind Yasutaka Nakata — plus more.

The music video is all sorts of creepy — not Ninja Re Bang Bang [MV] Kyary Pamyu Pamyu crazy style — but pretty Yasutaka Nakata meets Shiina Ringo. She fights what looks like random men in those gray kung fu fighting outfits, and… I gotta admit it- there’s a lot, A LOT, of boob-bounce. I don’t know why I thought of 2ch users making animated GIFs of that.

If you want to know more about the goodies that they’re releasing in celebration of Ringo’s 15th anniversary, check this post out.

Every goody is going to be released by this upcoming Wednesday, November 13th, and the best place (personally) to purchase most things Japanese media is HMV Japan. Unless they’re planning Hong Kong editions… but that’s unlikely.

You can always try finding her stuff on iTunes.
