I've decided to start doing music video reviews - as if I didn't have enough time to waste as it is. ;D

This is the best Tokyo Jihen video to date, and with Ringohime herself, this ranks up with her earlier solo videos too. I like how the new members are subtly featured, and the use of blood (since Shuraba does have the implicit meaning of bloodshed) - Ringohime was never afraid to break the rules or push the envelope on what's allowed on tv (see: Honnou music video), and this video just illustrates that she hasn't lost that rebel spirit at all.

Also: on costuming. Our Lady of Magdelena much? Wire crown and everything! Yappari Ringohime looks way better with long hair. More like Our Lady of the Apples, amirite? I'm still pissed off I didn't make the lottery for their concert tickets this coming February.

Note that all of these reviews will be in the music catagories either under indies or mainstream. :)

Final Review: A++

Tokyo Jihen - Shuraba (single)
Tokyo Jihen - Dynamite In! (DVD)
