I forgot Ayu was technically "caucasian" on the fromt cover. This would later become her standard look but was the first time she was blonde, right?

Amazing. I have the original version of LOVEppears and when I tried to access the content on my apple computer it legit said the content is too old to run. I did get it to run on a windows computer though, so it's nice to be able to access the content without having to switch computers.

^Love that kind of promo, really nostalgic!

I managed to upgrade the quality of some of those pictures from the LOVEppears phoshoot (I didn't do much, it was an app but they look great lol)

I don't think she had any ill intentions with that cover, but it's not uncommon for local artists to be attacked by the internacional public over stuff that aren't issues at their home countries.

I am glad the extra content is being revived with the website. I do wish that the quality of the content would have been updated to modern standards. I would love to have high quality versions of the photos.

I really loved the remaster for ASFXX MILLENIUM MIX. I think the difference between original arrangement and this version is pretty clear.

It ranked #1 on Oricon on the first day with 3364. The official release date is November 10 though, and avex said that it's at the discretion of individual shops whether to start selling earlier or not, so I wonder if it's gonna sell more from November 10 on

Ayu's studio albums sell 30k and her re-release sold 3,364 copies in its pre-release day

Namie's studio albums used to sell 300k and her re-releases albums didn't sell more than 3k OVERALL

I know it's different because Namie didn't remaster her tracks but still unbelievable

That's very interesting! I hope the album ranks high weekly so it's another nice addition to her charting history
