You people don't think sex sells in Japan? Really? Have you been there? Have you seen any CMs, PVs, magazines? Sex sells all over the world, Japan is no exception. And AKB48? They are pretty much all about sex. They can't even date because they need to be idols that the fans is supposed to "want" (and so crazy fans won't kill themselves). Anywho... Japan loves to sell sex - yes.

I do not think her goal with this cover is to be 'sexual' but that choice of pose is hard to interpret any other way.
Considering how annoying her fanbase is, I'm pretty sure she knows she must expect this stupid level of drama even if she releases a white t-shirt with her logo on it...

The way sex is portrayed in Japan is different from the West. Ayu sells sex every time she goes cute or use sera-fukus... It's not a coincidence her cutest performances also have the shortest outfits...

Ok.

I dun think she's trying to use the sexiness to boost the album sales. The covers are close to the theme of the album title. But the execution is not that great. The font, the pattern, and that "13th album" icon looks unprofessional.

However, I must say I haven't got such a big shock from ayu like this for a long long time... I mean, yes it's really shocking and unexpected... Thumbs up .

yes i know! I wanted to say soemthing like this, but you bit me too it.
These are ayumi fans... some of the most ungrateful, critical and hateful bunch I have ever met.

I surprised that people are surprised at the reaction.

Knew this was going to happen.

Japan is the most "SEX-SELL" country in the world, but they are very "shy" in admit it. And most perverted. So... who cares?

WOW :0 WOWWOWWOW

I don't even know what to think! At first glance I was like, "this isn't too bad at all." But once I started looking at them I'm totally confused. Ayu sticking her ass out in a bra+underwear type deal reads to me "Hey Mannie, look at dis ass you left!" The cover with the shoe isn't too bad but she's covering up half her face like (miss)understood. And the last one with her looking up is just a little boring.

I wish she would have had her pink hair in the covers. That would of gave her some edge then just a blonde asian on all fours. I wish the covers were a bit more fun too, more vibrant and edgy to represent it's album title.

Well, perhaps. If you say so, it would be true. AHS is the only fanbase/fanforum I am part of. But I am not seeing everything here as a drama. Also you do agree that the covers are a bit risky for Ayu? You see: there are people who do not like it, but there are also people who like it. We are only expressing our first opinions + second thoughts + third opinions etc. here. Some comments might be over the top, but yeah- whatever? At least it gives us a reason to reply or quote to those comments. And when you see the results in the poll, you see that votes are quite equal. There is no big contrast. And I do not see much drama in here imo.

Oh, I do not mean to attack you, but negative comments like - calling us 16-years-olds, acting like we are afraid of sex and find us an annoying fanbase- it looks like you are causing some drama? That's why I quoted you.

Reading through ayu's twitter, reading the English tweets she retweeted really give a hint.. hmm looks like there's a hidden meaning - Ayu said "the party queen doesn't want to be a party queen," she looks sad, "has lots of faces like a human", parody of tabloid mags..

wow!
