I'm really surprised that Ai is 27. O_o Every time I think of her I think she's still like...maybe 23 at the oldest!! Why are all my favorite singers getting so old?? XD

LOL. Thanks! I've tried editing it multiple times and still feel like it's a bit disorganized. But I'm glad that you like the title. I was really proud of that. XD I didn't want something too wordy or long.

I just ordered LOVE LETTER in a compulsive moment (I seriously needed some J-Pop stuff already xD) but now I'm kinda weird about it. So far is the only album that I haven't listened as a whole, with LOVE JAM, and I've heard some people saying that it is worse compared to other albums... I don't know... the cover doesn't stands much for me, but I love "Bye Bye", "360" (pure love) and "Kurage, Nagareboshi". Is the rest that good? I'm really excited about seeing a more mature Ai and all, but I also love her silly songs... if it is as good as LOVE COOK I can be happy ever after Did you think I made a good choice buying it?

Because the thread had yet to be closed. When a thread reaches 500 posts, you're supposed to start a new one and not continue to use the old one, but you can technically still post in it until a mod with powers to do so comes along and closes the thread. Then you can no longer post in it.

Great new thread, basil!! I LOVE the calendar cover! :O She looks so beautiful!

I'm so sorry! I thought that it was just a glitch or something and that the threads automatically locked themselves after 500 ( ).
