I asked to Yesasia about my cdl 05-06, answer: With reference to your email dated 28 Nov, 2006, we want to kindly inform you that upon checking the item "ayumi hamasaki COUNTDOWN LIVE 2005-2006 A (Hong Kong Version) ", we never claim that the item comes with the booklet. And we confirm with the supplier also, this item does not come with booklet. wtf ?

Shortage of booklets? Or due to different batches of discs?

THere are differences!
Delirium zero pointed out some good facts.

- plus the way some CDs are made for instance LOVEppears the poster that comes inside is different from overseas version and japanese version (bigger in overseas).

- As she had said it the printing quaility IS NOT THE SAME!, I have both LOVEppears and the overseas version the cover look more.. dark and not crsip as the japanese version.

- And something I always saw on onverseas CD printing is that is off. The small letters that say...! AVEX TRAX. etc... is always off if it has2 colors.

the quality of printing, paper Case is cheaper looking and feeling too. so that.s what I can say

Overseas versions are usually just as good as the Japanese versions, altough in my experience there's a higher chance the OS versions will have scratches and such. I think the significantly lower price is worth the risk, though

Odd!
Mine doesn't have a "booklet" persay, just a a 2-page thing with the Jp lyrics... and then the little chinese lyrics, and the usual Avex Adds.

I have a question about COUNT DOWN LIVE 2004-2005 :-

Is it meant to be 4:3 ? Because of that it's lesser quality and when i first put it in, it refused to play in VLC and my program that rips DVD audio - and then i installed an all region hack for my PowerDVD program and it works fine. Odd.

Oh cool!
I've always bought Japan Versions and I also will do
They seem nicer to me And aside from that when buying with a DVD it's the same region for me as my player isn't Region Free.

So did you just email YesAsia and say you didn't get a booklet ?

How weird i didn't get one too !

It's good you got your one though

I just emailed them & got a reply :-

I hate OS/HK etc versions of CD's ~_~ I wish I had always bought the Japan versions instead of falling for a slightly cheaper price for a CD V_V...

-The cases are cheaper - they crack/scratch easier
-Paper is cheaply printed - marks easily
-Sometimes (Rarely) CD or DVD will have errors (I had an error with my CD & DVD of A BEST 2 -WHITE-)

Japan versions are awesome! I'll be buying them from now on!! ^_^

EXAMPLE:

Ai am BEST - Otsuka Ai

The Japan version comes:
-in a red plastic box with "(kanji AI) AM BEST" pressed into it
-CD+DVD
-COOLIFIED "AI" stamp or pencil / other random gift

My friend who got the HK version only got the CD+DVD in the case ... no red box, no stamp ... no extras. Japan Version = BETTER EXTRAS!!

HOWEVER

SOMETIMES the HK version is better ... they come with exclusive postcards and they're not as "limited" as Japan versions are ... The HK version of Koda Kumi's "BEST ~second session~ CD+2DVD" is still available after 1 year ... the Japan version quickly sold out ...

MAKE YOUR DECISION!

*long post* >_>
