I can't get over how a Hikki song is now pretty much becoming a staple in Ayu's concerts and performances

I must say this year a-nation is pretty good! Ayu did the typical things she usually do for A-Nation and her vocals is awesome. I am surprised that she didn't sing Boys& Girls. LOL I am so used to hearing sing that song in every concerts she does.

It was a great show! I thought she sang well and looked amazing! I had one of those moments where it just hit me about how amazing it was she covered a Hikaru song!

Really great show I enjoyed it. Love W performance, dancers are great. Somehow W is starting to grow on me. So glad that she didn't performed Boys&Girls

W was really awesome live.
When all the female dancers sauntered onto stage it was so cool and powerful.
It really let you know Ayu was the headliner.

Rare parts when she wasn't shouting were enjoyable, the rest was painful to listen to.

I agree. After EXO's performance, all the shouting from the fangirls and so many people leaving, I was afraid her performance might fall flat. Even though I'm not too fond of W, the performance was awesome and powerful and she really managed to show the audience why she was the headliner.

Not to mention it looked like EXO and Red Velvet only actually sang like minute parts of their songs lol. * not saying this as a hater, just an observer x)

I finally managed to watch it and I love it!! It must be one of my favourite ayu a-nations. One of the strongest points was how energetic everything was, from ayu herself, to the dancers and last but not least the crowd. I really enjoyed how pumped up the crowd was, especially since I was afraid in this aspect. I also enjoyed the setlist, a good mix of new songs, recent songs and older ones (and finally no Boys & Girls). Summer love is really great for a-nation, I'm glad that she performed it and she did some great promotion by performing W and aeternal. I feel that her new dancers bring a fresh vibe to her team, and I enjoyed their dancing.

Yes, it was all lipsync. Maybe because they can't speak Japanese so the label is affraid that they will make some mistake while singing the songs live. But it was funny that during the talking part one of Red Velvet mic was not even working so she had to hold another one and then getting back to the "broke mic" during the "singing" part.

^kpop bands always lipsync, I don't think it had anything to do with them performing songs in Japanese.

I think bringing a batalyon of dancer kinda hip again these days... Oh well. Enjoy her voice here although I think she needs to let go those olds song she always sing... try other song and see how the audience react.

I was actually surprised how well she handled the first part of HANABi as she wasnt shouting until the second chorus.

Over-all this was easiliy her best a-nation performance since 2010. W was definitely the most memorable one!

I think that was very forgettable a-nation. W is outstanding and not in a good way. Dancers with their bras ruined this performance for me.

They took them off relatively quickly so you could feel relief ^^

I love this a-nation, she nailed it, W was outstanding and this performance will go down in her history. Then all those dancers doing Inspire . Summer medley was also such a pleasure to watch and listen too and when she was giving high-fives to all those people.... *dies of jealousy*
