Sheena Ringo’s “Saihatega Mitai” Chosen as Anime Theme Song

Sheena Ringo has been chosen to provide the theme song for a new animated film. The film, titled ‘Miss Hokusai,’ is set for nationwide release on Saturday, May 9. It is based on the Hinako Sugiura masterpiece ‘Sarusuberi’ and directed by Keiichi Hara. For its theme song, Sheena Ringo’s “Saihatega Mitai” was selected.

“Saihatega Mitai” was originally written by Sheena Ringo for Sayuri Ishikawa. The song’s vision feels uncannily connected to the world portrayed in the film, so she's covered it herself and produced it as a new recording. “Saihatega Mitai” will be released for download only on May 13. Tower Records will also sell a “jacket” towel with an Uta Code® on a limited basis.

Release of Ringo Expo ‘14 ‘Academic’ Mail Order-Only DVD

The video taken of Sheena Ringo’s arena tour “Ringo Expo ’14” includes an alternate version—an uncut view shot by a single fixed camera. We’ve now made this normally undisclosed uncut version available as a mail-order-only DVD called ‘Ringo Expo Professional Academic 2014.’

If ‘Ringo Expo ‘14’, the live concert video released on Wednesday, March 18, could be called the “regular” version, this cut is truly the pick of the “academic.” We hope you enjoy them both.
