the box set looks so nice even if the art has nothing to do with neither of the show included. The visual of the DVD cover has a Cher vibe.

Sweet Baby Jesus!
Can't believe my eyes. She's stunning!

After Nonfiction's cover I was ready for something amateurish and totally random but, oh boy I was wrong! I can't remember the last time they put so much effort into covers. The new shoots are iconic like the good old days. You can really picture something behind that simple picture. A whole concept. It will definitely stay in one's mind.

Wish there was more of that orange hue on the single cover (like on the DVD) to make it look less like a "studio" shot and more like a "on location" one. That Asia Tour cover is gorgeous. The CDL one is good too! The font are bad as usual haha and the single title is boring AF but I really don't care. Just keep on making another good music with a good video and I'm fine!
Hope what's left to be revealed is of the same quality.

This year is so exciting isn't it?

I was complaining about the generic title, but after that I thought "Summer again" is a very good title for an Ayu summer song after all these years and after a pandemic. I'm really anticipating this.

I wonder if the song will serve classic jpop tune ala Summer Diary or something more dancey like Summer love (a song which deserved single treatment). Hmm

Hoping that the Lord have mercy on us and it doesn’t sound even remotely close to that…song.
I’m picturing it sounding upbeat and in the vein of Inspire. Everything, even the cover pose is reminiscent of it for me. So yeah, I’m hoping for something like that, but updated and sounding more fresh.

No. The current digital single cover is perfect.
Her shoulder looks a bit off in this picture

The title is indeed VERY Ayu I can't get over the covers though. I miss these extra over the top photoshoots from her. She's been so casual for a very long time, which i don't really mind, cuz she's a beauty, but she's a veteran in the music industry she could totally go all out and pay homage to her golden days. It suits her too~ And tell stories with her covers as well, which she used to do a lot back in the day.
This really does make me think of Inspire. I honestly don't know why they don't theme the single covers to the music videos. It's seems like a no brainer, but for some reason hardly anyone does that. I remember GACKT used to do that a lot, and i always thought it was such a cool way of linking the whole trio together - music, video and the cover.

Ngl, the visuals are very pretty for the single, but the title seems like a very generic mellow-radio pop song. I hope I am wrong, cause this is indeed VERY ayu'ish title, and I am a fan from 2004 and I never learned that her titles are so tacky.

But the visuals seems like the song really might be something out of the 'generic' box for this one.

too bad its a wig, she would look supreme if this was her own hair.

Specially considering she has an amazing natural hair. So sad she never let it grow naturally.
