True. Also i dont think Rain's all that attractive. However, i do also really love Se7en and taeyang. Actually, i like them more.

crossroad >>> those covers. The backgrounds of those other ones make them kinda tacky looking. Sure there's still some tackiness in the crossroad cover but overall it looks a lot better than those in my opinion. I think the crossroad covers were shot by Kazutaka Nakamura, the same person who shot MOON/blossom. When I first saw them I thought of him because of the lighting.

^to me photos are photos. i dont really understand photography on that kinda level.

Also, i think its interesting to not have Ayu in PV. Last one we had was "Connected". However, it was animated. It'd be awesome to see a live action one done without her.

I'm wondering...

MOON pv= ayu alone, some kind of story that we don't understand, we need more info
Blossom pv= jaejoong alone, maybe some kind of story of JJ being alone, thinking about somebody...
one of L's songs pv= ayu and jaejoong together, we get the story finished, now we understand all the pvs.

remember guys that ayu is going to release her 50th single, she is maybe doing something very new and never seen^^

This will be Ayumi's 85th music video and this will also mark the first time ever that she doesn't appear in her music video. She says, "If I appear in the music video by myself, I might be "talking" way too much," thus making an offer to her friend Jejung who has also started his activities as an actor. "crossroad" will be challenging the record of having the most number of singles ranked first on the Oricon chart that Matsuda Seiko created 22 years ago with 24 singles; and Ayu trusts Jejung in helping her with that challenge.

Based on that article... do they not count "connected" as an actual Ayu PV then?

Sooo...her 49th single, part of a big promotion leading up to the release of her 50th single...and the b-side is a COVER?? That's really disappointing. As for the single covers...I don't like them at all. Personally, I've never been a fan of her " just stand there and look cute" covers (luckily, there haven't been many of them) and I think the outfit is tacky. More than that, there is no expression in her face at all! She has no life in her eyes (paging Tyra! ), and is that a return of the fish lips I see?

Oh well. I'm not going to like everything she releases. Plus, I'd rather have the actual songs (and their subsequent PVs) be good than anything. And, I super curious about blossom's PV!

I love her way of thinking. This single will probably have no issue getting #1. His fangirls would probably buy the CD+DVD version just for him, right?

Ok, so what did I miss?

the covers....um another VIVI magazine shot?
so the photoshoot for it was done by the same dude who did Moon...no wonder why when I saw those I was like "the same idea for the background light as for Moon...."...lol I must say i'm not very impressed with their artistic capabilities on the artworks XD i believe that I could do better...

and that Je-someone...he's all over the place.... I'm not really fancying this guy, but i hope they won't ruin the song because I love blossom >_> Oh and someone here suggested Gackt...um as much as I like him...I don't think he would go well with the music XD people would probably think Ayu awent nuts, HOWEVER some "wow no way" decisions would be cool....blegh

"Connected" was also a German single that I don't think counts into her official single discography (the discography that counts for her streak). I'm not sure if the single was even released in Japan or if the PV was broad casted there.
EDIT: According to Wiki (not the most reliable source but meh) "Connected" was only released in Germany, Spain and Belgium. The Japanese people are probably not that much aware of the PV's existence.

I never would have expected Ayu to name a song "SEVEN DAYS WAR", not that I don't like the name... It's just that it sounds a bit weird to me xD.

The covers are so gooood! I love them all!!(Even though I wouldn't have imagined such covers for crossroad^^')
They look so much better than MOON/blossom which looked a tad boring IMO, also her face doesn't look as photoshopped.

By what I can tell these covers look very tacky and kinda cheap to me as well.
