I mean, 207 threads are sure something, even though I'm new to this board I'm pretty sure more than half of them were of fans fighting each other disagreeing about something she did lol

I think the user meant people still being active here.
And I agree! I'm grateful for everyone still caring, responding, telling stories... I really appreciate getting in contact with fellow fans!

I checked with Japanese fans and Kuu did say in the stream the making of would be on the single ( or better she asked her staff live). Looks like a misunderstanding, it's not on it.

Kuu shared a first glimpse of her promo for Aveaute on Insta.
According to her we still have to wait a bit till we get it:

Maybe there will be a making-of on the album and she mixed it up? I mean, probably it's shot, pretty sure they always shot a bit of whatever she does, but not always releasing (or editing) it.

I love it how when we are close to an announcement I usually dream of her making one, and that was tonight lol Well, it was more of a teaser, she just dropped a giant black mosaic on her insta feed and in the middle you could read "QUEENDOM" It's an odd title for her imo since she already has an album named "Kingdom" but I'd still dig it (especially if it's another visual album lol)

You're subconscious seems to be influenced by Red Velvet!
But yeah, because of her mentioning it, we certainly know now, that a making of exists.

Talking about making ofs... the making of of the Killer monsteR PV included in the EP making of on the FC version, was done like for something like MTV's Making the video, even down to the run time (seperated in parts with themed questions and so on).
I wonder why it wasn't used for that in the end.
I surely would have wanted that for all the PVs of the EPs.

Ah, yeah, Kuu shared this yesterday in her stories:
https://www.instagram.com/p/CTwt5U9l...dium=copy_link


That's Rui Machida, one of the star players of the Japanese basketball team. They won Silver at the Olympics and she scored an Olympic record in the semi-final.
She's a big Kuu fan.
Explains now, why Kuu's music was played in the basketball arena at the Olympics or being used for TV broadcast.

^ This is so cool!! We are really seeing a new generation of artists, athletes and such who are not only fans of hers but also grew up being fans, it really makes me happy and probably makes Kuu as well!

I’ll need to wait until the content is revealed To properly judge it but it seems kinda pointless to me.

It's funny, at some points they call it All time Best, at some only a Best album.
I have hoped to be past that... not to mention All time Bests are stupid for an artist still being active and alive.
At least the editions are reasonable priced.

Interesting that the regular edition comes as DVD but the FC/mu-mo comes as Blu-Ray.

Maybes since the regular version doesn't include all the singles that's why they go back and forth calling it "best" and "all time best"?

Yeah, most probably because it can also mean "anytime" in Japanese, and that's what they refer to here.

Hope the special stuff will be great - but with her rehearsing that new song e.g. I assume it will be for me.

I hope she does some TV promotion for this release. Her first real BEST project since 2010 deserves good promotion!

Oh my QUEENDOM is coming!!!

I am glad I skipped the FC photobook cause this is an expensive release but I need it so bad lol But whats exactly that name plate? Is it a car plate? lol

Also I hope the FC version includes more than just actual singles cause songs like show girl and UNIVERSE need to be in that.

Can we hope for rare content? Never released before live footage or demos and scrapped songs? Cause I am

-edit-

So I listed her a-sides from physical releases, left out tracks that didnt make it to the album even if they had videos and ended up with 78 tracks:
Spoiler:

1 TAKE BACK
2 Trust Your Love
3 COLOR OF SOUL
4 So Into You
5 love across the ocean
6 m.a.z.e.
7 real Emotion
8 1000 no kotoba
9 COME WITH ME
10 Gentle Words
11 Crazy 4 U
12 Cutie Honey
13 Chase
14 Kiseki
15 hands
16 Hot Stuff
17 Butterfly
18 flower
19 Promise
20 Star
21 you
22 Birthday Eve
23 D.D.D.
24 Shake It Up
25 Lies
26 feel
27 Candy
28 No Regret
29 Ima sugu hoshii
30 KAMEN
31 WIND
32 Someday
33 Ningyo hime
34 I'll be there
35 JUICY
36 With Your Smile
37 Yume no uta
38 Cherry Girl
39 Unmei
40 BUT
41 Aisho
42 FREAKY
43 Ai no uta
44 LAST ANGEL
45 anytime
46 Moon Crying
47 That Ain't Cool
48 TABOO
49 stay with me
50 It's all Love!
51 Lick me
52 ECSTASY
53 Hashire!
54 Alive
55 Physical thing
56 Can We Go Back
57 Lollipop
58 Suki de, suki de, suki de.
59 Anata dake ga
60 POP DIVA
61 Poppin' love cocktail
62 IN THE AIR
63 V.I.P.
64 KO-SO-KO-SO
65 Ai wo tomenaide
66 Love Me Back
67 Go to the top
68 Koishikute
69 LALALALALA
70 TOUCH DOWN
71 Dreaming Now!
72 HOTEL
73 MONEY IN MY BAG
74 Dance In The Rain
75 Shhh!
76 LIT
77 HUSH
78 NEVER ENOUGH

Not sure how they'll treat the meaning of peace, WON'T BE LONG and Futari de..., but overall that was it.

So, if they put 12 tracks in each FC disc, there's still room for 18 more tracks. I am not sure what they'll do with her digital singles from re(CORD) but those were nine, and there three last year, so still room for 6 tracks. I feel like there won't be album tracks now lol It's a pity if so tbh cause songs like flower and KAMEN are so forgotten even by Kumi herself, so many album tracks deserved more than those...

@Gustavo
It's the All Singles Best she teased in January 2020 already.
Singles from TAKE BACK till XXKK (so 92 songs altogether without mop and WBL). They probably simply pushed it back for a year and it was originally planned to be released December 6th 2020.
The description directly mentions TAKE BACK, Ai no Uta and XXKK.

Fans sre already calling it 20th anniversary best album.
Which it is.

The actual interesting thing will be how many songs are going to be on those two versions in total, if there are going to be new songs as well or maybe just a new song through video and what else they include.

EDIT:

Ok, it was December 2019 when she teased it, lol.
Gonna include it again:

Unless it's a FINALLY situation with re-recording (which I highly doubt) the only interesting thing for me is the Blu-Ray because we might get good upscale PVs. Let's pray for not another compilation of lives with comments like the pointless MY NAME IS... release.

I recall that best but I mean if it was postponed and she released new songs why not include even one? lol A friend of mine thinks maybe the SO21 songs will be on a new studio album which will come out later. I just hope she doesnt pull another double release thing, this one is already way too expensive

@Kaled:
It's music videos.
The description of the CD shops like Rakuten reveal it for the regular edition

Quote:
らにMusic Videoも1枚のDVDにセレクトし、計4枚組の3CD+DVDで構成する、倖田來未の20年間が凝縮さ れたパッケージ内容。
Btw. they also note on her official site, that even though the release date is December 6th, a Monday, sale will start December 2nd, a Thursday, and preorders are gonna shipped to arrive December 2nd.
