This is actually a very common marketing misconception. You can sell bad products with a ton of promotion, but people most likely won't give the same product another chance after that.

Considering Ayu is on the market since 1998, if her releases were subpar, she would be far gone by now.

I hope her recent TA post would manifest in some kind of Renayussance in terms of music, videos, and their overall promotion.

So has anybody noticed that part of Me has been getting heaps of views on Youtube lately??? Ever since Haru yo koi was announced/the preview came out. I reckon it must be because of the similar aesthetics

I loove both songs/music videos so much. Ayu should release a traditional Japanese inspired album someday... Hopefully after A BALLADS 2

As much as I love this discussion it feels like its getting out of topic for this thread lol

Less than 15K views to hit 800K on Youtube! In Chile we have this channel called ETC TV where they air anime, doramas and geek TV shows, in between shows they also air a lot of japanese and korean MVs, they have showed many Ayu videos the past years like Zutto... Song 4 u, evolution, real me and many more but the most recent that I recall is Zutto... so yesterday I asked them on Twitter if they could air Haru Yo, Koi! I didn't get a reply but they liked my tweet so I have some hope!

I really liked the discussion going on, but I've moved it into a new thread to help news about A BALLADS 2 and Haru yo, koi not be buried. I do think it was relevant since it was discussing Ayu's position in the industry and how we expect this album to perform, but ultimately it began to touch upon other subjects and become active enough to warrant its own thread. I hope to see it continued there!

Shimomura just shared this picture of them both, I wonder if it's a new picture because I don't remember her with such a long hair unless it's from last year during DaD or something lol it would be cool if they were working on something else again!

Oh I love that style! It's fierce and feels fresh, I would love it if she would do something like this for a change for a cover.

oh she looks stunning.

anyway, do you guys think there will be any more announcement concerning A BALLADS 2? the fact that the final set list has not been officially put on the 'NEWS' section on her website makes me think that there might still be more announcement to come (but what?).

I would even take that pic for a cover of a release tbh.
By the comment he made, I think it is for something new.

Maybe other clips to add to second dvd/BR? The virgin Road live clip was added to rare lives dvd after the setlist order video last week.

oh you're right, so the track list does not seem to have been completed, after all. I'm still holding onto that slim chance that there are more surprises to come
