Tokyo Jihen - 2012.01.20 - Music Station

This is Tokyo Jihen's last performance on Music Station, which aired yesterday. The band decided to pick up both the last and first singles of their career: "Konya wa Karasawagi" and "Gunjou Biyori". As usual, the instruments are all playback, but Ringo seemed to actually give an effort this time, showcasing some of her best vocals on Music Station ever. The stage includes a Phase 2 logo with the Phase 1 colors, which was a very nice touch and matches the song choices.

Much to my surprise, they didn't really talk much about the dissolution, with only some comments from Ringo and Kameda. They did have somewhat of a special focus on the show, however.

For the stalker-ish fans (like me), I've included the first few seconds of the Big Bang performance where you can see Ringo curiously looking at them in the background. I wonder what she was thinking about.

PS - I'm opting for 480p videos, since I can achieve smaller filesizes that way (200MB compared to 500MB for a 720p version). However, I'd like to hear everyone's opinions on this choice.
I've also changed Megaupload with Rapidshare, considering the recent incidents. I'll have to reupload every video on this blog as well, so before that it would be nice to know what you think of this choice too.


  1. I personally prefer higher quality videos and 720p is perfect but I can personally understand a change to 480p if need be.

    And regarding that Big Bang thing... I noticed the rest of the band were focused on moving off stage and she was kinda lingering there. EITHER SHE HAS SOMETHING FOR YOUNG KOREAN MEN OR SHE JUST THINKS "WHY ARE KOREANS PERFORMING ON A JAPANESE MUSIC SHOW?!" :P

  2. LOL. I assure you you're not the only stalkerish one. I watched the whole MS show, and when I saw Ringo and Izawa turned behind their shoulders to look at Big Bang performance, I rewinded the few seconds back. Haha.
    As always thank you for the video links!

    1. Same opinion as Hieu about 720p quality, but you do your best and we understand ! ;-)

  3. Ok, 720p version uploaded :)
    I too prefer 720p, but because of the large filesize, I thought most people would prefer a faster-to-download encode. Seems I was wrong!
    Thanks for the comments!

  4. ah! late to takin 200mb =="
    me prefer a little one coz Rapid hates me
    only MF workin well to me....
    but cant help it, thanks anyway

  5. I didn't delete the 480p upload, so there it is again for you :P

  6. Muchas gracias por el video! =)

  7. thanks for uploading!:)

    I see that Kameda and Ringo talked about the reasons for the disbandment. Do you know what were they talking about in that part?

  8. Excellent! But it's a shame Tokyo Jihen is over.
    I want to ask you about Shiina Ringo's performance at Otakara Show... Where can I find it?

  9. Thanks for posting it! And it would be great if you could upload the videos that were on Megaupload

  10. ...looks like most of the mp3 files hosted on MF are down, would you please consider uploading them to a different file host with abbreviated names? Uploaded.net seems reliable, and of course, there's always good ol' RapidShare which never deletes.
