albums: japan vs. overseas versions

edit: for those of you who are saying that there is no difference in sound quality between the two...do you have a high fidelity stereo systems or are you just listening to your cds on a small boombox? im into high quality music and background noises such as "hissing" annoys me. i can detect these static noises right away, so i wouldnt mind spending more on the japan versions. i just want to know for sure if there is a sound quality difference between the OS and JPN versions.

yea my OS version of everlasting (ELT) had a little paper in it with a survey from avex in hong kong and the address of avex in hong kong. i dont think they would have that in a bootleg by another company

There is such a thing as grainy photography. I don't know of which CD you speak, but it is likely that is was done on purpose.

A Japanese Version refers to an item which is manufactured and released in Japan whereas an Overseas Version refers to the same item but it is released and manufactured by a licensed local distributor. In most cases, the content of the item is the same except that the Overseas Version may include some slight changes such as the booklet has been translated into local language.

I don't know if anyone siad this yet, but i think the japan version is like, in all japanese text, like the overseas one, is the original. like when you open the booklet, there's names, like "Max Matsuura" might be in Hiragana and Kanji instead of Romanji

I didn't want to open another thread so I'll ask here:

Starting next year I'll start buying Ayu's albums (at last) and there's no doubt about it, I'm going for the japanese versions (I don't mind paying up to $35 plus S&H on her albums). But for concert DVD's is different, I think that the price for the japanese versions are quite expensive, so my question is this: are the overseas versions of Ayu's DVD's bad or almost the same as the japanese ones; also, are chinese subtitles imposed throughout the concert or can you turn them off (including the extras, and do japanese editions of her concerts have subtitles in any language?) and finally, from all the overseas versions that exist, which are better: korean, taiwanese or from Hong Kong?

Thanks for your help

^ japanese dvds and overseas dvds have the exact same video content. on dvds (if subtitles exist), they must be turn-off-able. however on VCDs, that might not be the case. VCDs will have a lesser quality than DVDs, but overseas and japan DVDs are identical in quality. hope that helps

Sorry if this has been asked before but do the OS versions come with the same stuff that comes with JPN version first pressing and all that?

I didn't want to start another thread so: I ordered my (miss) understood album from www.play-asia.com and it's the Japan version. Has somebody bought from them (they're in HK) and if so: do you think they'll get first press, because it didn't say anything about being the first press, it just says that's the japanese version with DVD...

No, it's because the Korean standard of living is cheaper than Japan's.

As far as I know subtitles only exist in the overseas VCD versions, and in none of the DVD versions. For DVDs I don't think there are Korean Versions, but I could be wrong. Either way, all 3 of the options in your last question are the same product and there is virtually no difference.

*confused* help

I`m surfing Yesasia and cdjapan (mostly yesasia) right now for some Ayu cd`s and dvd`s. What`s the difference between overseas version and Japan version? and then there`s the hong kong version and korean version, etc. O.o

sorry

for your first question, please read the 1st page, it's been answered very clearly.

second answer: hongkong version will have translation of the songs in chinese, while the korea version are in korean. and the cd is remanufactered in hongkong(or known as overseas) or Korea.
