True that, but it would've been pretty epic if it had hit #1 though.

It's true, but we still have the drama to go on air, I hope that helps boost sales

I also think this product is aimed at fans. The general public don't give a f*ck about remixes and PVs...
I also think the general public don't give a f*ck about LOVEppears 20th anniversary too haha.

They just want some gossip.

Amazing!
No wonder A COMPLETE was #9 on Recochoku (downloads) in 2018, she's doing good there as well! Here's a little summary of what I found, if you can keep up data with other websites, please do!
https://recochoku.jp/

Spoiler:

Monthly (october)
AAC :
- #12 A COMPLETE
- #40 A BEST
FLAC :
- #7 LOVEppears
- #26 A BEST -15th anniversary-
Chaku-uta :
- #48 M
Video :
- #39 M

Weekly (11/6~11/12)
AAC :
- #22 A COMPLETE
- #39 LOVEppears
FLAC :
- #6 LOVEppears
Video :
- #36 M

Daily (11/12)
AAC :
- #24 A BEST
- #27 A COMPLETE
- #41 LOVEppears
FLAC :
- #2 LOVEppears


And yes, there is a huge discount on A COMPLETE and A BEST, but people are interested as well, which is awesome.
We can see the book's effect on M ranking last month... Very excited about the drama's effect when it'll start airing!

I was so happy when I saw a new video from Abottchen! I'm glad they did something for the anniversary.

It's a rerelease of an old album. Not anything really different about it either other than the DVD maybe.

I don't remember if this was discussed before, so forgive me if it has, but since I first saw the LOVEppears cover years ago, it always reminded me of Madonna's Like a Prayer album cover. I even had both albums on top of each other on display on my shelf for a long time. I always thought maybe LOVEppears was Ayu trying to contribute the "upper half" to make the picture "complete".

^I don't know really, it reminds me of Emma Bunton on Spice Girls' Generation Next


So I compared WHATEVER (Ferry 'System F' Corsten vocal extended mix) from Disc 3 to the original appears single version and it does sounds different a.k.a. remastered

I have a theory that Disc 3 is remastered and Disc 4 isn't (I don't have ayu's whole lossless discography to compare the rest so it's just a theory)
Cause I took appears (HAL's Progress) from Disc 4 and compared it to A BALLADS and sounds exactly the same
I also took appears (Junior's Club Mix) from Disc 4and compared it to Far away and sounds exactly the same even the same lenght

Can anyone confirm?

to me, it seems either (1) the contents of DISC 4 were not remastered at all; or (2) the remaster of DISC 4 is not to the same extent as/much more subtle than that of DISCs 1–3.

on DISC 4, the HΛL's Progress version sounds identical (for my amateur ears) to the version in A BALLADS. same thing goes with the Acoustic Version—it sounds identical to the version we have in ayu-mi-x II.

I'm surprised it sold that much in the second week, to be honest. I expected it to sell 15k overall, perhaps... It might continue selling a little bit here and there for a while, but now I find 10k a more reasonable number.
