Looking forward to it!! The most expensive versions come with a 40 page book from the TeamAyu Shop entry. We've craved this for a long time, anticipating the tracklists!

I hope for new vocal version or new arrangement like the first one. The remastered on A BALLADS was the best for me.

maxikot 1st January 2021 12:39 PM

I'm expecting a beautiful photoshoot :luv2

Xianghua 1st January 2021 12:40 PM

PLEASE let it be new arrangements like the original A BALLADS :weep that's all I want

Evan Odinson 1st January 2021 12:41 PM

This is such a cash grab (but let me see the goods on the expensive editions to see if I'll buy it anyways lol) I hope they do an amazing photoshoot :yes

Deep snow 1st January 2021 12:48 PM

I hope there are new songs (other than オヒアの木 and Pray for you) (and I hope Pray for you is great) (and some new arrangements!)

I hope the remasters aren't bullshit (LOVEppears sets such a high standard for me)

I hope the DVD contents aren't some bullshit live compilations

I think I'm aiming for the stars, but who knows. she surprises me sometimes.

i hope it's not only a remastering and that there is new arrangement for some songs as in the first A BALLADS.

A book? or a photobook?

I'm waiting to see what will be on the second blu-ray to make my choice. I supposed the blu-ray that is in each version will be pv.

tokyoxjapanxfan 1st January 2021 01:06 PM

Part of me thinks the 2nd DVD/ bluray will be power of music 2018?
It’s the only unreleased concert that would...work? (Or the Christmas live but considering the quality I’m thinking not...)

Otherwise, it could just be a compilation of live performances?

Ooh the PoM 2018 will be perfect!!!!!

Not too excited about this so far but if this includes the new song then that's nice. I hope the CD's artwork looks pretty.

Aderianu 1st January 2021 01:19 PM

I was waiting for that for a long time! Just preordered 2CD+2BD from TA

difference in price between versions with 1 DVD and 2 DVD is 6600 yen. Book can't costs that much, so high chanse it will be any not released yet concert

jpopfan018 1st January 2021 01:26 PM

BD / DVD DISC 1: Music Videos of all tracks on CD1 and CD2
BD / DVD DISC 2: Selection of Live Clips from 『ayumi hamasaki BEST LIVE BOX A』

LOLX

A BALLADS is one of my favorites and I always hoped she will release another one.
I'll wait for further details before speculating on how the songs will sound exactly or if there will be any rearrangements, but I am really happy this gets released.

I will buy it though as it's a good release for me specifically since I don't own too much Ayu stuff.

2021 sounds more hopeful musically, looking forward to it :-)
