If that's it, kinda mad at how they made it a secret for such an uninspiring title lol

But I loooooove the cover, the fact that they put the original single in the back is just the cherry on top!

From what I understood on an ig post a radio station made, this is gonna be a studio version of a previously used live arrangement. Hoping it's the black cherry tour version!!

The cover definitely has throwback vibes - simple, but I like!

The BEST 2000-2020 covers are great , awesome throwback to BEST~second session~& BEST~third universe~

I really like the cover used for the preordered mu-mo version , Kuu looks much more prettier when her hair's let down instead of being tied up

It's somewhat fitting that Kuu is holding yet another different drink for her new best album covers xD

2006 , it was milk then 2010 , it was a cup of tea now juice

Looots of news!
First already leaked through a radio station post - new version of Cutie Honey coming 10/25.
It's the Jazz version from Black Cherry Tour, Koda Gumi already got a preview.

Covers for the Best are out!

FC/mu-mo shop version:


Regular version:


The're meant to reminisce about her past 2 bests.
No tracklist yet.

Promo shot for the best:


But we're also getting 2 new songs!
Idk how those tie in with the best album.
They're posting this in the same news with the best and call the release with those 2 songs and the Cutie Honey pre-release a release series, but they also directly state the songs won't be on the best album.

First song is called 4 MORE and is a medium dance tune about the theme of bargaining of love. Release date is 11/15.

Here's the cover:


Second one is a ballad called 100のコドク達へ dealing with the loneliness people have. Release date is 12/06, her anniversary day.
No cover for this one yet.

Loove all the covers! So glad they are putting effort on this album. Definitely expected it to be a lot more lowkey. I wonder which songs will get new versions too, can’t wait for the tracklist

I love this theme but I find Cutie Honey cover much better. Second session was already re-use for third universe. Would have love a first thing throwback instead.
Still excited to hear the new versions of the songs!

She’s going all out with this release and I couldn’t be happier.

The 4MORE cover and the description give me „feel“ vibes.

On another note, which other arrangements are possible. Gundi and I already came up with real emotion rock version and DDD traditional version.

^ There are lots. She did jazz versions of Crazy 4 U at first things tour, of Butterfly at Bon Voyage, there was a piano-ish version of ai no uta at Kingdom Tour, electropop version of Shake It Up at Kingdom tour as well, BUT also had a different arrangement at that show girl medley from TRICK Tour, a rock version of maze in either secret live or first things tour, a solo version of LAST ANGEL at Kingdom Tour... and there are more, I remember having a list of at least 15 of those.

ah yes, hope we get all of these. Especially the alternative mix of BUT (the best one is the one with Cherry Girl mixed in)

The covers are amazing! Probably my favorite covers from her since JAPONESQUE/Color The Cover.

While I'm excited about the re-recording I'm not sure how I feel about them also doing re-arrangements. I feel like its a great thing for the fanbase since we all own the originals by now but may be a turn off for the general public who just want the standard version of the song.

Same. The covers might be the best ones since 2012 or so. Regarding not including original songs, I don’t think it will be a turn off for the general public, in fact I don’t think the general public does even care about her releasing a best album. To my eyes, she’s releasing for her fans since a while ago and luckily she has a strong fan base.
For me, doing new versions of the songs both vocals and arrangement is a win and shows that she’s not a lazy scum trying to make money out of the same thing over and over.

We have to wait for tracklists to know what she gonna put out for the general public and what for her fans (aka regular and FC version). Quite a lot of possibilites actually.

On another note, her manager showed a pic of you or Someday PV on a big TV screen in her stories not too long ago and wrote "wow" to it.
I think she most probably reviewed the Blu-Ray content for the FC version, which will probably be the PVs.
