Maybe Avex became resigned to the fact that AyuChina is a force greater than themselves.

I have a feeling Avex knows most of the Ayumi forums with downloads on. I don't think we go by unnoticed~ If we grew by a lot I think it'd be an issue, but right now I don't think they care.

well if they released then in europe, I would by EVERYTHING! I got most of ayu's albums and two singles, and they are just TOO expensive... not only cause in Japan everything is expensive, but this price gets 3 times higher due to transport which isn't cheap either!

And I just can't wait till my copy arrives!!! I JUST CAN'T

If Avex would realease Ayu albums in Europe, they would be way expensives than japanese ones.
And I don't think they will sell well as jrock albums. Jrock sell much more than Jpop in Europe, nowadays :|

And we have about 18,000 so they're more than four times our size...

I don't think they would be that expensive, I mean, for me, to get an ayumi album is 50~60 euros... O.o' I don't think they would cost that much!

Just the knowing that I could walk into HMV in the U.K and see a J-Pop section with the latest stuff... Dream come true!

I don't think so...I've never seen them in the U.K at all. Maybe in some little specialised shop? I've never heard of them at all though of being sold here, sorry. If I had, I would definitely not be paying the shipping charges for stuff lol

Well, if they sell them in Barcelona, I think it's pretty possible that there is one shop where they sell it... don't know

Yeah, which is why I get most of my stuff used...which is also a gamble because it's online ordering and you never REALLY know what you're getting until it arrives, or unless you're buying from a seller you've had a good experience with before. Also, doesn't contribute more money to the artist/label.

I just wish there were a bigger "world music" market here (in the US). I used to live in Orlando, and they had one of those HUGE Virgin Mega stores before it went out of business a year or two ago...I mean, it was enormous. And they had a "world" section. But it was mainly Latin music and reggae (which is great, but not much of a "world" variety). Then, they had some traditional world music compilations--also cool, but where's the modern pop/rock music?

I'd find, like, a Puffy CD, a Shonen Knife b-side collection, and a couple of random, old JPop/Rock compilations. And then just traditional Japanese music. Chinese music was 100% traditional (unless you count Twelve Girls Band because they've been "mainstreamed"), and there was NOTHING Korean.

Once in a while, I'd find an Asian Kung Fu Generation, L'Arc~en~ciel, TM Revolution, or Thee Michelle Gun Elephant CD in the store's main pop/rock section, because those bands have (or had) American distributors. No Ayu whatsoever. No Gackt, back when he was such a huge name. Nothing else, no matter how famous the artist/group might be throughout all of Asia.

/rant

I know there's not much of a market for Asian music in the US (even though the fanbase has grown so damn much in the past 10 years, compared to before), but I always thought it was ridiculous that an absurdly large, international chain like Virgin Mega has such a weak international music selection...

You're in FL, right? Orlando, then, or near it?

I was sad too, but it was mainly a nostalgia thing. Like, it had always been there, and was a significant part of my early teenage years (even if I often left the store disappointed and complaining...lol), so I was sad to see it go. An odd feeling...

Same with that horrible bootleg-touting Oriental Trade store downtown, which recently went under.

No. And if there are, let me know 'cause I'm in London too for New Year.

You can try Mitsukoshi warehouse, it's right down Regent Street from Picadilly Circus. Regent Street goes 2 ways from there, so when you're on Picadilly Circus and you look down Regent Street, the road should be straight. Don't take the Regent St that bends away from you. Take the straight part and it'll be right down the road. Sorry I don't know how else to explain this

Mitsukoshi is great, they've got tons of magazines (downstairs) and a small CD stand. I didn't find Ayu's CD's, but when I was there they did have BoA's BEST & USA (deluxe one with the longsleeve) and Namie Amuro's PAST < FUTURE. So when Ayu release the new Love Songs, they might stock it.

Definitely go check it out, it's a fun place!
