^Means only 30% of her followers still support her. Well well well.

I doubt it, she will probably release something small; I doubt it'd be a single though...plus, with her 15th next year, I think Ayu will want to sustain her record until then, because we know whatever she releases next year will earn the #1 spot. If she loses it this year, she'll have to start all over.

I'm putting my money on a Love songs situation.
I'm not even sure if people are excited about her 15th year. Unless avex will make it big, promote it big, expose it big, then maybe people will again give attention to their true megastar Ayumi Hamasaki.

^I don't think she'll release another album THAT quickly...but who knows, she tends to surprise us. I see a single or another freaking collection for the 15th anniversary. I would much rather have an original album for the 15th anniversary though. It could be themed and everything.

To be honest she should have left the best albums for the 15th anniversary and did it properly. BESTs have potential to sell well if done right. Kumi screwed up her last BEST, tho it was on her 10th anni, it was paired with another album and the setlist was crap - it didnt sell as well as a BEST should. They really needed to leave this for a proper major release like A Complete was and the promo it got

LOL neither do I.
I was trying to imply that ASfXX is better than any future Best collection. That, and I'd rather support "old Ayu" than "new Ayu"
TBH I listened to the album recently and I quite liked it.
But if Ayu releases new material, I'll be all on it.

I think we will see an A Best 3 during her 15th year...
something she should do is maybe package it with a new album.

that would be pretty cool.

^Seems rather ridiculous and pointless to release A BEST 3 now, or even next year. Wait until the 20th anniversary and do a HUUUUUGE release.

Tbh for next year I prefer an Asia-wide tour for a new album. THAT WOULD BE EPIC.

^That would actually just really annoy me. LOL she has already done that. If anything, she should do shows in places she has never been before. Avex can do some kind of poll and find out where the most fans are outside of Asia. Then she could possibly do a show in NYC or something.

It's definitely sad if not shocking to see that ASB is selling much lower than Party Queen

Granted that I shouldn't be comparing both of them since 1 of them is a best album while the other is a studio album but I thought by right , best albums should be selling much more if not better than a studio album ?

It's a pity & supporting ayumi for so long now , it's real unfortunate to see the way things turned out to be

Also , I feel she should not release A BEST 3 so early , leave it to next year in time with her 15th anniversary . I feel that when you release a best album , it should mean something

Not when you release a best album for the sake of doing so , like just because other artistes are releasing 1 , you should do it too , it shouldn't be that way

The only reason why I believe she'll release an album or mini-album this year, it because she just seems to be over singles. :/ One more month, and it'll be 2 years since her last single.

To be honest, I don't think it's Ayu's use of promotion that is the reason behind these sales, it is her lack of singles (which I guess are promotions in itself). I mean, yeah, TV lives and such are important, but Ayu hasn't released anything consistently to keep herself prominent, so she's slowly slipped. She hasn't got people going, "Oh, I liked Ayu's last two singles, maybe I should buy the album as perhaps she has recorded similar quality songs!!!" You know, it's surprising when you see a band, or an artist's CD in a shop, and you think, "Wow, they have a new album out? I didn't know..."

I think this is why Ayu isn't selling, or is as popular as she used to be.
Singles = TV lives (throughout the year), album setlist/quality promotion, magazine covers and interviews throughout the year, new fans.
No singles = No TV lives (except when album is about to be released), lack of album setlist/quality information to the public, no magazine covers/interviews unless near the time of an album release, absence of new fans.

If she goes to NYC, I'll go. Even if its an exam day. I'll have broken limbs for 48 hours or something.

my gut feeling still says that she's already done with releasing singles & probably decide to head onto the whole no singles just album releases route

If not , why she released Party Queen without the backing of any physical singles ? & frankly , quite a lot of songs on there have the potential to be released as singles themselves , such as Return Road

since both her #1 streak for both her studio & best albums are now gone , why tampered with her #1 single streak ? :x

^ Yeah, I think this too! It explains why she no longer desires to release singles. That, or she feels as if she has proved herself (which she has, fifty singles is no small feat).

But then again, I always imagined Ayu going to 60 singles.
Perhaps I'm tapping into some kind of psychic channel?

Party Queen was a one-time thing, for now. Until she does it again, I think it's safe to say that she will eventually release more singles.

I think the only people that care about her number 1's is this forum.
if Avex wanted to get a number 1 album they would of released ASB last week.

she doesnt care nor does avex..
its not like they get anything for it.

Yeah, Avex, ayu, and I think most of Japan has accepted that she's way past her hey day. I don't care about charts at this point, I just want ayu to keep releasing new songs.

that's true
There was a japanese article circulating which spoke about ayu's current career state.
Apparently she's going to get major budget cuts or something like that.
Her CDs no longer break even with promotion costs and such (is what I read).
