I'm truly disappointed already because with all of the tweets and posts and teasing about two years of inspiration coming together, it seemed like it would be more. Maybe at some point it was, who knows.

But I'm really not a fan of mini albums as they rarely have more fleshed out concepts. I could say a lot about her mini albums but that's tiring. I don't get why they keep releasing them though.

And what's worse is that there are only 3 new songs. I would have preferred a Zutto... style single with three new tracks that work well together than whatever this is about to be.

I may be biased because WATQ is like bottom 5 in her disco for me lol.

If they are going to do promotional effort this time around, just invest the resources into an album.

I really feel like ayu is detached sometimes as much as I love her and I find avex to just be so unhelpful (not even just with ayu) and I truly don't understand their management.

But hopefully the three new songs are good. At this point that's what I have to look forward to. I thought the title was interesting too.

wow the announcements I saw today have been an Emotional rollercoaster. I'm still in denial right now so I'm still hoping she'll pull a Secret and announce that she has recorded 10 new songs and release them as a full album. also, what's happening with Chapter 2 of Just the beginning? Jesus I'm so confused

That'd be great because all this trainwreck of announcements has been very disappointing.

Coelacanth 22nd July 2018 11:25 PM

lol there's no way she spent all that time in the studio to record 3 songs

!Lawi! 22nd July 2018 11:26 PM

^And had all those meetings!

This one's just embarrassingly bad. :no

I missed out on MiJ TA version because I waited so I'm gonna pre-order this now and cry about the cost later.

Yeah I'm in the same boat. I would happily pay large sums of money to get that Made in Japan TA box set now. Instead, I'll settle for these releases because I want the concerts, though I'm surprised this means Countdown 2016/17 is not being released.

Xianghua 23rd July 2018 12:50 AM

Like some others have said I also think another release will come.

I just wish JTB would have been released as a complete box set and then TROUBLE be a full length album separate release. This planning is so messy. They made a big deal in the email pointing out that it's the first release in 2 years, and because of the tour announcement you would think it was going to be a proper album....then you go to the website and it says it's 5 songs. Such a bummer.

It's so bizarre to build a new tour around 5 songs :o

truehappiness 23rd July 2018 12:51 AM

Yeah, it seems like something else is probably coming. Also odd is the way they have two CD only versions that only differ in the jacket photo.

hidekirby 23rd July 2018 12:54 AM

This is such a mess... What were they thinking? Even if there is more to come I can't help thinking it's an embarrassing strategy.

OR
They thought no one would really be interested in the JTB concert collection, so they figured adding it as an incentive for a new mini-album would help boost sales. Probably expecting a few fans to spend their money buying both.

I'm not convinced they'll revisit much of the JTB tour after this; chapter 2 wasn't entirely different to chapter 3, and considering the Made in Tokyo countdown was only released as part of the MiJ box for TA, I can't imagine them having any interest in releasing the JTB Countdown show.

LUOYUXIANG 23rd July 2018 01:44 AM

At this point, let's just hope there is actually a song called TROUBLE and it's edgy af

Yagami Raito 23rd July 2018 01:55 AM

Iím happy we have new songs yet they could have at least try to put also 3 to 5
"20th Anniversary ver." of old songs to make it looks more like an album lol...

On the Tower Record website it's also written that it included We Are the Queens and Words.... I want to believe that those are not included in the "5 new songs"... yet it's written that it's a 5 tracks album so... :irked

ひとつずつ 返したい
たくさんのありがとう達を
ひとつずつ 許したい
置き去りにしてきた過去達を
泣いたりしたね 憎らしいほど
それでも最後の小指外せなかった

輝く未来が この腐敗の中に
もしもあるのなら 君と見ていたい
こんな願いが まだ許されるのなら
なんとかもう少し 歩き続けるよ
こんな時代を

ひとつずつ 並べたい
???? ???
やっと笑えた あとは決まって
残酷な現実が頬を叩きに来るね

それでも未来は 明るいものだって
君が信じてないと言うなら
僕はここにいて 叶え続けるから
必要なくなった時にはどうか
きっぱり捨てて
I think this is the song she sang at the finale, lyrics done by ear by a fan.

freedreamer 23rd July 2018 02:05 AM

ayu, you can put WORDS and We are the QUEENS for all I care, but please give 6 new songs. 3 different songs on each album. I will be totally fine. 6 new tracks is standard enough like Colours, (miss)understood

RealLight 23rd July 2018 02:08 AM

I think we'll have the full cover in a few hours, she's been uploading pics to her IG and it looks like one of those 6-piece big photos.

Is that picture of her laughing in her profile pic one of the covers? It looks similar to the two zoomed in shots she posted. If so, she’s basically laughing at how much trouble she’s already caused with this release. Lmao.

RealLight 23rd July 2018 02:45 AM

^ I think the one in her profile might be for the booklet, doesn't make much sense spoil the cover right ahead, but... it's Ayu. :rolleyes

EndOfTheWorld 23rd July 2018 02:48 AM

Maybe the one we already have is version A and the next photo will be version B. I have no idea anymore. I don't know what Ayu and avex are doing anymore.:laugh

ayuinh.k? 23rd July 2018 02:49 AM

Should've just released a 3 A-side single like Zutto/Last minute/Walk with the DVD/Blu-ray bonus as JTB Chapter 1 or Chapter 3
