PLAYBUTTON cover

MissElin_ 1st March 2012 01:53 PM

Oooh I like many of them. LOVEappears, Duty, RAINBOW, MA and Secret are really nice.

George 1st March 2012 02:05 PM

Those look so cute. I want them!

2Hurt 1st March 2012 02:14 PM

Those are really cute & cool :luv2 Didn't expect them to be this cute lol

LeeLeeNeko 1st March 2012 02:22 PM

I looove the fact each PLAYBUTTON has a new symbol in relation to the album.
FIVE's one looks pretty cool, I also love the ones for Memorial address, Secret, NEXT LEVEL, RnRC...
They all fit the album so well. :laugh

By the way, what's the signification of the "0630" for Memorial address ?
I know we can also see it in the photobook but I never really knew where it came from.

It's been speculated that her father died on June 30th, IIRC, hence the connection to Memorial address. It's never been confirmed, obviously.

I'm loving the designs for the buttons! Still not enough to convince me to buy them, though.

ayuuk 1st March 2012 02:30 PM

They are very adorable!! I love FIVE and MY STORY!!

So far I only ordered Party Queen's PLAYBUTTON, which is still "now printing." Aww so curious!!

freedreamer 1st March 2012 02:43 PM

why is Party Queen's wan still printing hmmm...they might but 13TH ALBUM on it hahaha!

and i really love the simplistic and symbolic image for each album!! very very cool. THIS has thought put into a design LOL

tokyoxjapanxfan 1st March 2012 02:46 PM

Omg I want NEXT LEVEL lol.

Kazeyomi 1st March 2012 02:51 PM

they looks too cute! :luv2 they're better than I thought.
I know they're quite useless, but I'm tempted to get one of them now :laugh.

owlflight 1st March 2012 02:58 PM

They look so cute! Now I just have to figure out where to order them from...

toniayu 1st March 2012 03:05 PM

Wow...now I'm actually tempted to buy one!!!

happiholic★ 1st March 2012 03:22 PM

I'm kinda surprised that they didn't use the actual covers. This idea is kinda cute, but I'm still not getting any.

Aderianu 1st March 2012 03:51 PM

I love design =) very cool

I think it's the unicorn tattoo with inverted colours.

EDIT: I read "Secret" xDD LOVEppears seems to be one of the butterflies on her nails.

It's Ayu's hand with the butterfly nail from the booklet. ^^

LeeLeeNeko 1st March 2012 04:08 PM

No, it's a picture from the album's booklet (they just slightly altered the colors) ;

i thought about that, but I just can't think of any good reason for it... lol
Some say that her dad died that day, but I was under the impression that her father left her when she was young and she never "looked back" per say.

So that doesn't make sense.

truehappiness 1st March 2012 04:33 PM

Wow, they're so cute!

kendelle 1st March 2012 04:57 PM

They all look really artsy and cute! I can't pick a fave, although I like NL, ASFxx, Duty, FIVE and LS the most, they're all awesome!

It seens like the whole EP is a Memorial Address for someone who left her, and died without never getting in touch again... So, her father is the most likelly person.

Becky 1st March 2012 06:39 PM

They're so cute... I thought about buying A Best 2 -White- but they are so overpriced. :irked I'll wait and see if the price goes down...

Ayu actually mentioned in an interview that the song Memorial address is important in the same way as 'teddy bear' to her, so I think that kind of confirms the father connection to the song.

TeamAyu2004 1st March 2012 06:42 PM

I thought Memorial address was about her grandmother?

EDIT:
Wait, no.. i take that back never mind.. i was thinking of a different song.

hidekirby 2nd March 2012 12:23 AM

I didn't want any... but now I'm really tempted to get one. :grumpy

Tom Punks 2nd March 2012 01:28 AM

^ I'm the opposite. I wanted a few, but since they don't have the actual album covers on them, I no longer want any.

hidekirby 2nd March 2012 01:33 AM

^ Haha, yeah the exact contrary!
But I don't know which on I'll choose. If I had to choose for the content I would get Duty/I am.../M(u) or Love songs...

But those buttons aren't the best imo.

A Song for XX, Ma and NEXT LEVEL look really good.

tokyoxjapanxfan 2nd March 2012 02:31 AM

God am I seriously contemplating getting one of these? The power of Ayu.

microphone 2nd March 2012 02:51 AM

I don't like the A BEST 2 buttons but the rest are real neat.

YUKARI 2nd March 2012 03:03 AM

wow they are really nice

I wonder why 0630 for Memorial address.

I'd love to get A Song for XX, Duty and A BEST :luv2

inspire_rmx 2nd March 2012 03:09 AM

some of the badge designs are really really cute and arty. my fav is definitely MY STORY. will be getting that and SECRET :) can't wait to get my hands on these!

melina_t 2nd March 2012 03:10 AM

Oh my god, they're so cute! lol
I think I'd go for Secret.

jyujiw 2nd March 2012 03:17 AM

Oh NEXT LEVEL ♥

*******, I'm now thinking about buying one... xD

pommy48 2nd March 2012 03:20 AM

Omg they're so cute! At least they took the time to design it <3

truehappiness 2nd March 2012 03:24 AM

I love how people want these now.

ayuuk 2nd March 2012 03:28 AM

^LOL yeah~~~

pimenta 2nd March 2012 03:48 AM

They're so cute! I really want to buy them, but I can't >.<

sesshy 2nd March 2012 03:50 AM

They look like cute little CD albums! :heart

AyuGAME 2nd March 2012 04:12 AM

i think die hard fans will buy all of it...
average fans will buy 2 or 3...
fans will buy at least one...

i think this release could be huge...i wonder if the sales will be count to album sales or not...

SURREAL__RAINBOW 2nd March 2012 04:34 AM

average fans will be broke already so won't be able to buy any for now xD

Unlikely. The format is just too 'special' to count as an album sale. It'll be interesting if they do count them towards her Oricon total though...

elvis810 2nd March 2012 07:23 AM

i think the one for Party Queen will be a pair of lips.

Aderianu 2nd March 2012 07:34 AM

^like on glasses

amorphose 2nd March 2012 08:15 AM

Can't decided which one to get, but I'm only gonna get one cause of the price! Maybe MY STORY?

~angel*ayumi~ 2nd March 2012 08:47 AM

I pre-ordered I am... when the links first came up, but I think of maybe getting LS too, the heart on the button is so cute.
Maybe I also will buy one or two in japan, are they sold in normal CD Stores there?

Yumi(e) 2nd March 2012 11:31 AM

No A BALLADS? T___T Why?

I'm a massive fan but I'm already broke ordering 'just' the CD+DVD edition of Party Queen! Big fan doesn't equal big money :laugh

inspire_rmx 2nd March 2012 01:19 PM

oh ya i just released that there is no A BALLADS. that it soo sad. else will highly get that as well..

~angel*ayumi~ 2nd March 2012 02:15 PM

Damn yes, I never noticed that too.
A Ballads playbutton whould be cool, it could feature the little teddy bear from the Booklet^^

Minerva 2nd March 2012 02:44 PM

definitely getting rainbow
it looks pretty

aavis 2nd March 2012 02:56 PM

so cute
i like it

ayuuk 2nd March 2012 08:21 PM

Oh yeah now you guys mention it, how come there is no A BALLADS? :P

truehappiness 2nd March 2012 08:26 PM

That is kind of a weird omission since they have A BEST 2 on there as well as A BEST. Maybe they didn't want to include it since it's more of a 'remix' album than it is a compilation album?

sinfonietta 4th March 2012 09:36 AM

I would be tempted by one or two of these if the prices weren't so extortionate. I'm already spending too much money on music at the moment with most of my favourite artists releasing new albums/singles within a month of each other.

I'll stick with my iPod, thank you. :)

adantatu2 5th March 2012 12:14 AM

And no A COMPLETE -ALL SINGLES- XD.
I think they only add her official BEST albums

truehappiness 5th March 2012 12:18 AM

You would need 3 buttons for A COMPLETE, hahahaha~

that would be 50 songs, they wouldnt do that when how many songs the rest would hold and also how much this one would clash with the album buttons but a bargin buy if it was in except no guitar solo in M :(

Earth_maiden 5th March 2012 12:19 PM

I hope they're available to purchase in Japan, I want to buy one or two when I'm there in December. :yes

Not~Yet 5th March 2012 12:23 PM

The NL one is just adorable. Loving the Duty one too though it makes me think of KISS, the band xD

inspire_rmx 9th March 2012 07:51 AM

i wonder what is the design for Party Queen

truehappiness 9th March 2012 07:53 AM

I think it'll probably either have lips or a shoe.

I wonder when we're going to get it.

Pieces_of_SEVEN 9th March 2012 09:15 AM

UGH they look so cute....I WANT THEM ALLLL

AyuGAME 9th March 2012 02:35 PM

CUTE OVERLOAD!!!

Heavenly 9th March 2012 04:25 PM

I think the boxes are made of the same plastic as the transparent slipcases of Ayu's Arena Tours DVDs (usually) : it shines a little, and looks glossy :P

Maybe I should post it here as well. My friend who went to the TA Limited Preview took a pic of the Party Queen PLAYBUTTON! :D

LacusClyne 12th March 2012 04:16 AM

Thank you. That button looks cool, I might get it when i'm in Japan, if I like the album songs enough

KaiHamasaki 12th March 2012 05:35 PM

i just placed my order for 2 of these adorable little things: NL and RNRC!

totally overcame with joy once i clicked on the 'pay' button.

maybe if i like the Party Queen album after listening to it, i might get that playbutton in the future...

Aderianu 12th March 2012 06:27 PM

i expected to see lips )

truehappiness 12th March 2012 06:28 PM

Same here!

I wonder how they arrived on that final design since there's no real hint at the skyline other than on the TeamAyu background.

KaiHamasaki 12th March 2012 06:56 PM

well, but the leopard print is a given, right?

there should be some special meaning to it...

Ah, I see that they used the skyline in the box designs as well. I guess the booklet will probably explain it a lot better, haha.

CHAS_AYU 12th March 2012 07:31 PM

I wanna know the dimensions of the PLAYBUTTON.

According to Playbutton.co's Specs-page, the buttons are either 4.8 or 4.0 cms (~1.88 or 1.57 inches) in diameter (not sure which diameter is the one Ayu's albums have). If that's what you were asking for. :)

Aderianu 12th March 2012 10:08 PM

Now glasses looks weird. maybe they came from previous version of design. with different font and lips

Pieces_of_SEVEN 13th March 2012 12:33 AM

They all look so pretty! Omg I want them!

jyujiw 13th March 2012 05:11 AM

The buttom for party queen is amazing too ♥

Pieces_of_SEVEN 13th March 2012 05:31 AM

REALLY debating buying some (or all), but I'll never use them...but I collect everything ayu releases. Kinda pissed off at Avex for this. LOL and I think they should be cheaper, especially the older albums.

I am literally debating buying some or all of them as well!! Why are they so pricey!! :no

stickyrice 13th March 2012 02:42 PM

I wouldn't mind owning them but knowing me, I just won't take care of it and will probably end up damaging it . Heck I already leave the cds out of the case lying around on shelves lol

visionfactory 14th March 2012 01:01 AM

Why Party Queen PLAYBUTTON is not on YesAsia? :no

OyTony 14th March 2012 08:01 AM
