I just thought how nice it would be if she were to record a studio version of Haru yo koi but I think most people wouldn't like it as much in her current voice.

I'm trying not to set my hopes high. Ayu did great job for A BEST and A BALLADS, but all of her "best" releases after that were pretty simple. I believe this one will not be different, it will be compilation of remeastered songs without rerecording. I also expected to see ohia no ki on one CD and pray for you on another

good new but I'm a little fed up that there is no new album since a long time, and it is always the old songs that are used

I hope she will includes some covers of other singers and of course new vocals for her own songs ! I'm surprised because I really thought this year would be the release of A BEST III.

I also hope that they won’t included the songs already present in the first A ballads unless they are rearranged or with new vocals ...

Maybe one of the DVDs will be interesting though.
Well.. she has been recieving lots of money from Avex ballads compilations CDs that outsells her own albums sales. So yes, I think it's perfect timing.

It's a wise move. I'm actually happy, it's been a long time since her last compilation. I hope this is a good release date and she can get another #1 album since this is not a new album and has more appeal to the general public.

I hope there are at least some rearrangements (like piano or classical versions). I love A BALLADS, so I hope it’s as good as that. It was my first Ayu album haha.

Watch that second dvd/bluray just be the A BALLADS compilation video from youtube, and maybe a second compilation video with remaining songs from A BALLADS 2 lol.

Still excited though and I can't wait to see what they actually include.
