Regarding Ayu's work ethic... as for how I look at this personally, I don't think Ayu was lying all of those years when she said the stage was her life, and how she exists. I think it scares her a lot to have hit such a wall in her creativity. We saw some signs of her having writer's block around the TROUBLE era and I'm assuming since then she has started and then scrapped a lot of projects. It makes sense that after so many years of keeping that struggle private, she'd now finally feel able to talk about it.

None of us are obligated to make assumptions in her favour, but I think we're seeing very much someone coming to terms with how this has affected their confidence and sense of identity at the same time as feeling on a ticking clock regarding their health. She has a lot of strength opening up the way she has and while I naturally don't want to make assumptions for what her future looks like, I appreciate her talking about this and whatever she wants to do next.

We're celebrating her 25th anniversary next year... 25 years of incredible music and performing. My biggest wish is that in the midst of all this, she can appreciate her legacy. She will forever be one of a kind.

i’ll CRY stop. i hope she knows she doesn’t owe us anything and just her existence and health is enough i hope she doesn’t force herself to put something out in fears of disappointing us, because she should put herself first and foremost. she has nothing left to prove, she’s one of the biggest pop artists in the world and just the mere fact that she was involved in the creation of almost all of her music is impressive enough… if she does ever decide to take a break i will support her 100% and TA will be there to wait for her patiently ❤️

I am also waiting for the covers to decide which edition I am buying.

I don't care about the music videos (they are on youtube and... I am not even watching them) And the A nation 2020 was fun, but I am not that excited by it.

If the packaging is nice, i may get the deluxe box, if not ièll stick to CD only.

I think it changed drastically after Promised Land. Was it the babies, Timmy leaving or COVID, which made her stop doing her job for awhile and maybe she got a taste of life off-stage, but she really is giving a totally different vibe than couple of years ago. I think she use to do everything for her fans but I think that changed after she became a mother. We are not her babies anymore since she got her own family. I'm not saying this bad way, I love that for her. Nothing lasts forever and as she said i M "beginnings comes randomly yet endings have a reason" or something like that

It's hard to let go and accept the reality
You make a good point here.
Maybe she is trying to recreate the passion she once had for her job and creating things but is failing to do so and is getting frustrated with it.
If she wants to take more time to be with her family and wants to do things that make the most money for her and her family like touring and such that's pretty understandable to me.

I would rather her just do what she wants and feels is right for her and her family, instead of trying to force something that just isn't working. I also would rather have no new music than uninspired, lackluster new music if that is what the result winds up being.

I think I've lowered any expectations for this album after hearing about how creating it doesn't seem to be coming naturally for her.

I honestly think hiring a creative director would solve so many of the “issues” with her releases. If she had the inspiration then that’s one thing, but it feels like she’s lost. Concepts are kinda there, but tend to be very vague, half ideas.

I think Timmy, despite my issues with his stage persona, was the breath of fresh air for Ayu for many years. And now she’s kind of struggling to create.

I also think Ayu is similar to how Britney was, in that she lives in a bubble. The difference is that Ayu kinda put herself there…

All theory of course—we’ll never really know haha. It’s just the vibe I get with how she presents herself lately.

I think the reason why the lives feel less impactful is due to the absence of the band.

Nothing personnal towards the man but Timmy always made me feel uncomfortable.

I agree that the absence of the band makes it feel less effervescent, and also because of the cheek fillers etc, Ayu's facial expressions are harder to see, and she has obviously been recovering from giving birth, injury, illness, and that shows in her ability to move around sometimes.
I like the idea of Timmy, but when I read some of his tweets it really put me off him personality-wise :S
Bring back Yocchan!

In the past, I would say "unlikely", but even there we got "my name's WOMEN" PV released on STEP you / is this LOVE? DVD, so she can just release a new PV on YouTube even though it's not included on the DVD.
