I was at the 12/30 concert and thought the setlist was good! I REALLY enjoyed the medley of her old songs. It was all very nostalgic. Plus, it was definitely great to hear songs that she hasn't sung live before.
"MY ALL" was a great ending, I think, and the audience was taught the hand movements before she started singing the last few songs.
Overall, it was a great concert and I think her voice sounded great throughout. If her arm hurts at all, she certainly didn't show it!

I just heard POWDER SNOW...omg i almost cried...the music is SO powerful and Ayu sang it well...i mean after so long..she could still sing this song like THAT...it was amazinggg...goshh

im gonna hear End of the World and HOPE or PAIN now

EDIT: OMGGGGGGGGGGGG
End of the World IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
her voice is still drowned in TV lives lol...but HELL! THAT WAS AMAZING

HOPE or PAIN as well...omg..im really happy.

ok what else have I heard...

SIGNAL ~ Hana ~ too late IS AMAZINGG OMG...very very nice. It's gonna bring more love to these songs..

Will is quite disappointing...not as strong as the cd wan...GREEN also...wasnt sounding powerful...I think because her voice is drowned by the sound *fsat forward to YO KAAAA!!!* OK ..i CANT HEAR IT o.o

Heartplace is very powerful as usual.

And then ~ Naturally...I think And then was very good..but Naturally sounded a little strained..but i cant blame her...

In The Corner: sounds gd! cant wait to watch it omg...dancey!!

SCAR & Over: Lovely!!! Nostalgia~~ The guitar solo after SCAR was amazing

everywhere nowhere: im surprised they opened this song with the fun part hahaha...very cool.. I hope Ayu uses this song one more time soon. It can really be a hype song!

Who: I actually like the idea of using Who... as the "end" song for the year...really fresh. Her "OOO lalalala" sounded weird though haha...Rock arrangement??? dun hear it..

ANGEL'S SONG: sounds really different..i mean.. the opening tune. Her voice O.O...this is gonna spark off discussion...flawless HHAHA..but this song really doesn't need much force to pull it off..

Real Me: YAY. She missed it out in BEST OF CDL haha..

vogue~HONEY: i dunno how these two went together?...I though it shud be...GREEN-Will-vogue and HONEY-ANGEL'S SONG..was it? ok guess not...weird transition i have to say..But good vocals still



IM SO HAPPY! hahahha...she did well for this CDL..very amazed. I can't wait for the DVD now.

Her voice was really good..
Kouhaku didn't give any example of what PCDL was gonna to sound like!!!
I was really impressed with Hope or Pain, and Over.
And that most of the songs were in the original key.. ahahaha.
I love And Then ~ Naturally... And Then was a very nostaglic feeling to it, but it feels also she could release that song now too.
I love this concert..
It's one of the best concerts, not her most best..
But her vocals were #1.

AND PECO AND PRINCESS ruined In the Corner!!!! ><

I am looking forward to the DVD, so that it sounds 100% perfect LOL
There's not much to edit.. not like last year!!! it's 100% improvement~

I'm only listened up to Heartplace so far, and I have to say that she sounds top notch this year. Definitely a huge step up from last year, and I won't regret buying the DVD whenever it's released.

I just love her vocals. I was so afraid that she would sing these songs in that out-of-breath-not hitting-the-higher-notes style like in her MW lives... But she sounds great! EotW<3 Powder Snow<3 Everything (I've listened to)<3<3

But wth a rock arrangement of Who..? Sounds normal to me. Too bad, I wanted some really crazeh guitars.... xD

I'm amazed at how good her vocals are, especially with the older songs that have have higher notes and would seem harder to sing.

And Powdered Snow <3333333 Will <33333333 Hope or Pain <333333

In 'Over' her mic just before the final chorus is away from her face when she sings "It's over." I hope the file is messed up or something, cause if not it would really make me skeptical about the rest of the concert..

that was exactly what I was thinking
It's weird

EDIT

HER VOICE WAS REALLY ALL OUT !!!
OMG
ESPECIALLY IN THE ROCK SECTION

She's such a great performer !!!

She's not lip singing those song

I think this is by far the best concert ever !
It almost beats ASIA TOUR 2008 less the props only
OMG

She sounded great in most of it, some of it she sounded really tired and other parts it was hard to hear her.

imo, her best vocals where during Hana.

also the performances of GREEN and Will were epic <3

Okay, so here's what I thought of the GREEN+Will performance!

- Vocals were freaking hot on both songs.
- The green strip they rolled out on the stage during GREEN was cool.
- It was funny that Ayu danced with Maro and not Shuya during GREEN. (I love me some Maro, and HATE Shuya!)
- After she took the kimono off-- she looked absolutely stunning! :O
- I really enjoyed the theatrics on both performances.

OMG ! this CDL 's really awesome ! i love this tracklist although she didn't add " Momentum " and " Jewel " ! but that's ok for me ! after watching " Green " and " Will " i know her vocal 's a ton better than CDL07-08 .

It's rather interesting to note that there's a song on each album she's released in the past EXCEPT Secret. I wonder why that was..

The dance for green was sooo much better choreographed and timed.
Maro and Ayu were in sync 100%!!! I was impressed about it~~~

ANGEL's SONG IS LYP-SYNCH!! UNDOUBETLY((((
The reason is same as with theme of a-nation but MUCH MORE OBVIOUS!((
She messed lines in the chorus and I never saw that "mita" could be sang with closed mouth, but you can see that she singing "motsu"
And before that she had same mystic smile as in theme of a-nation perfomance when she forgot right lyrics))

edited: "It's Over" part also lypsynch but I hope it's the same deal as AT05 Happy Ending when she lypsynched 1 line to sound more dramatic

If you are referring to theme of a'nation in countdown live 05-06, that was a REAL live no doubt~
