Okay,this is a kinda not related to what's been posted here lately,but I'm having really trouble with something that I have posted at channel-ai but no one has answered yet.

Yesterday I've received 3 Ai singles that I bought from ebay and everything seems to be fine with them but I noticed something.

On all 3 CDs (SMILY/Biidama,Amaenbo,Daisuki da yo.) there are writings in kanji & katakana and I could read only the katakana ones that say "promotion" and got a bit worried after I saw that in channel-ai gallery there are no such writings on those CDs...so I was wondering what do they mean? What are my copies of these singles in fact? I took a pic of them (click to enlarge them).

Look at that orange/black text,they all have it. Is this normal and what does it mean?







So are these singles some kind of promo or original singles?

^They are indeed promo CDs. 見本 (mihon) means "sample".

^ Could be. The difference is promos don't contain booklet pics and if you care, they don't count towards Oricon. They're what radios play when a new single/album is released.

Does it mean if they're Promo CDs, the sound quality isn't that good?

The quality is really great I can say.And the singles look as the original ones (I checked on channel-ai for scans).I can upload more pics of the singles later...

EDIT:


(Ignore Ayu's GUILTY,lol)

@ Chiharo - it depends on how you look at it

it could be a good thing as promo CDs are quite rarely found to be sold online . I don't know in the case of being bad though

but for me I look at it as a good thing as it's not often everyday you can find a promo CD being sold online

whatever works your way

Lucky you Chiharo. I have a promo version of H&MC's Goover and it doesn't contain any booklet pics.

Ah,well I guess I was kind of just lucky and if I want to buy regular singles I can get them anywhere,lol. (even though I want regular ones,but it's fine xD)

So thank you for all answers and encouragements about the promos that should be original sinlges

Promo CDs are rare. They are good collector's items
