Also, while technology has certainly improved, itís interesting that commercials have grown completely uninspired. I do wonder what happened to the creatives of that time and why things didnít continue in that direction. If I had to guess though, in Japanís case, Apple really changed the way people purchased tech. Japan was the forefront in that field until the iPod/iPhone really undercut their market haha.
Couple reasons: (1) People don't want to be fully creative for the work anymore. In the past, people think they work hard and they would be successful. Unfortunately many big companies took that as an advantage. More people work, more they realize the reality. It is a part of capitalism.

Today people just want to work minimum.

(2) the design style has changed. People now prefer the style more realistic when in the past more filters on pictures or print media...

I did have a panasonic lumix for many years, until, of course smartphone became good enough in taking photos !

I still love ladies night another night so much more than the original !

^I had the purple one from the Sunset CM, cherished it for many years!

I completely forgot about Another night! I think I still prefer the original version because it adds to the weirdness of the song and makes it stand out more imo, but damn that's a catchy version!

I also had a Lumix from 2010 because of Ayu lol I believe it was the don’t look back CM one, song which by the way also sounded different from the CM iirc. I remember hating it but loving it at the same time, it was the first time that happened to me with Ayu, don’t look back was completely different from her style at the time. I wanna be surprised again.
https://youtu.be/PhEOgHIaOpM

We’re assuming the album is coming out in autumn, but (and I don’t want to make anyone sad lol) we must also keep in mind delays are a thing with avex, and Ayu. I wouldn’t mind the album being pushed back to next year, if that means she has more time to work on it and deliver something better. In fact, I believe releasing it on New Year’s like she used to would be a great idea, and also would serve as a prefect way to start her 25th anniversary. On the other hand, I personally think A Best 3 is coming as well next year, so maybe releasing them to close by each other would affect sales negatively (?) Idk.
Anyways, I think if the album was coming out this autumn (mid November at most) we would have information out by now, or should be having it really close.

Sound wise, I don’t know if the attendance to the ultra festival means anything at all, but if she is going the EDM route for the album, I’d be totally down for it. I just hope it sounds cohesive, and high quality produced. And of course that she lets the singles she released prior having an album concept (DaD, 23rd monster, ohia) out. Because the two singles released this year, both visually and musically are cohesive, and I cannot be more happy if Ayu had a real concept for the album instead of a bunch of songs thrown together. I personally think we’re getting Colours 2.0, but better.

(Also must add that the style I love the most from her is Rock, but don’t think that will happen this year according to what we had so far)

I feel like Panasonic has done additionally mix for ayu songs in most CM. Lots of songs in CMs sound different from the album version.

Panasonic CM is the luxury version of the song.

I've always preferred finished versions of songs over Panasonic CM arrangements. "STEP you" feels much more energetic and vivid on the CD version (and I absolutely love the Kraftwerk vibes of it).

the CM turned out to be a meme with Chicken Wing and a fat ugly troll.... ��������

anyone remember this CM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1YkZYW-agA
The remix demo version is better than the one in ayu-mi-x 5...

Avex CM for her album in the past was better too.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HT3bJji2CU

Look at the amount of work just for ayu-mi-x CM...
