i dont think at this point she really cares with general audiences, otherwise she would have done massive tv promotion, i reckon she's more concern with her fanbase; TeamAyu. all the promotions are more toward teamAyu members. thats i what i think

In Japan, amongst Ayu fans there's something called Bold & Delicious shock (ボルデリショック = boruderishock). Bold & Delicious was the turning point when many fans thought she lost her marbles, and many people started hating her. If you google the japanese, you can find many people talking about it LOL

So in fact, this hasn't been going on for just 1 or 2 years, but ever since 2005. With the advent of itunes and other ways of getting music, people just dont want to buy her things.
I heard about that back when it happened. Bold & Delicious wasn't really Ayu's style at all and the single sales reflect all that as well. If they went with another single back at the time, (miss)understood might've sold a million.

I definitely agree with you. The singles before B&D/P all sold on par to the level of MY STORY's singles, so I think Ayu's marketing team should've not released that single, or chose better songs for it (I think a Ladies night/Pride would've been amazing).

Bold & Delicious is awesome and I for one am glad she released it as a single. I like when she does things that shows she isn't afraid of not always appealing to the public.

I think rainy day/Ladies night would've made a better single over-all even though I love Pride so much.

I don't mind her releasing it, but back at the time I was shocked as well.

It was her decision!!!! Not ours. She was TIRED of releasing the same genre so came up with something new. Most artists around the worlds switch to another genre.

Haters may hate because most likely they sleeping when listening to Ayu.

It's not like she was only releasing similar songs. Imo her 2005 singles were really diverse.
