I really enjoyed the performances aeternal especially (the verse first <3). Getting Summer Diary vibes from that song.

Her vocals in ASFXX from 2004 were great!

To Be was a bit shouty but I love that song so glad she performed it.

Overall, great job Ayu! I think it would be interesting to see TO BE get a new arrangement. Listening to her vocal performance, in addition to just struggling with songs that are higher pitched, I think towards the end she really wants to make it a rock song. So instead of being this nostalgic, sad song - I think she should go for a more aggressive arrangement, like A Song for XX from A Ballads. I think that could really make it interesting for her!

She looked fantastic, and I thought she carried herself really well during the talk parts, which have been hit or miss in recent years. Very happy with this!

Very very pleasant to see Ayu perform these three songs and she was an absolute delight to watch during the interview section. I have to agree with someone stating she's gotten a bit used to lives lately, meaning she didn't adapt to the TV like looking into cameras and such. But other than that she did really great.

Then on AT2010 he asked me to marry him. He was such a sweet. And Ayu gave us our blessings. She was also such a sweet. Now me and Maro are such a sweets together. Aaaw, how time flies.

^ I loved her shoes! But also barefoot Ayu ♥

She was explaining the meaning behind Š of Šternal, right? What did she say about it?

Yeah, it was a bit strange at times. Especially in TO BE, she was basically singing the chorus to her background singers, not the camera, lmao.
But else this was her best TV live in years!

This was way better than I was expecting. I enjoyed her singing a lot, especially in tracks like Voyage and TO BE (I was afraid for the chorus, but it was good). She was really glowing during Voyage. I also liked the setting and the lights, not over the top. Aeternal also sounded nice, the arrangement seemed more lively.

I can't believe how good voyage was... I'm amazed. It was perfect. Aeternal was also well performed and to be too, but voyage was simply amazing.

This was very good, I really enjoyed it! TO BE was pretty good and she did great on Voyage. As I suspected I like Šternal much more live. Does anyone know what she says when they ask her about Šternal?

During the introduction to Šternal she explained why is called Šternal insted of eternal. If I understood correctly she said: "Normally Šternal in english would be written "eternal", but I chose to write it with the latin letter "Š" that looks like two "e" joint together back to back so it'is "Šternal starting with Š". The reason is in the song."

I had the feeling se was putting the focus on "eternal starting with Š".

Two letters put back to back in a mirrored position... the tracklist mirrored for Jacket A and B... the "Double Trouble" theme... playing around the "W" letter... I don't know how to explain it. I see a pattern here but I feel I can't really grasp its real meaning yet.

^Thanks for explaining! Wow, I didn't even realize it looked like two e's, only the first one is upside down.

Thanks! That's really interesting, it also never occurred to me that when writing a like that, it's like an upside-down e. There's definitely a 'double' theme with this album, I just wish it was more developed.
