I honestly suppose we’ll get some kind of info about it on Saturday. I mean, we’ve been getting a new pic everyday so... it’d make sense to have two more pics tomorrow and Friday and some kind of preview/info with the next batch of info. Crossing fingers it’s for a completely new song in the vein of Will/green/ballad.

Don't you think ayu looks like a mannequin? It's only few making photos, but she just standing still and being beautiful, without any emotions. And with hand near face.

If it´s an actual wedding kimono Ayu won´t move much in the video either way,this things are quiet heavy and you can´t really make big moves in them.

I imagine the video is gonna be a part of Me x GREEN kind of deal... very grand, not a lot of movement from her other than gestures and maybe a falling scene?

I thought for sure becoming a mother, full Libra manifestation of the divine feminine via motherhood etc etc etc would get this woman inspired but holy fucking shit she is really high up on my list of people I admire across all art forms across all decades of modern society that have really seemed to irretrievably lost👏🏽their👏🏽spark👏🏽for👏🏽ever. But I keep coming back!! It’s so hard to give up on her because I love who she was so much at her artistic, risky peak.

I believe it just means like, being in the presence of rinpa (?) lol

Oh, the (original) art she’s in front of is two separate screens, so it could be literally “between rinpa” as well haha but I believe it’s a more general, “space of rinpa”, or “room of rinpa”.
wow thank you so much! that means it's unlikely to be the title of the song then

That's really pretty! I love the meme one as well


I'm reading the comments from the Baidu post from a couple of pages back. It's just google translate but seems the cfans are excited about it. it's not perfect translations but some of the comments seem interesting

Spoiler:
- I really want this to be part of Me's sequel

- The beauty is always kept for the inside pages

- 2nd image looks like she lost a tooth

- (ayu's) version of Japonesque
-- who stipulated that orian stle was only used by Koda?

- Damn, so foreign

- beautiful as expected, I cherish these active singers

- so cute, still looking good after 40

- ayu's aura is not for casuals

- part of Me 2.0, let's continue the "Tragic Princess" costume drama

- everyone talks about other artists in Ayu's posts but no-one mentions Ayu in other artists posts. The phenomenon is really indescribable.

- anyone think this is an MV for theme of a-nation '03?
-- if it is, we must buy it many times over

- OK it's worth buying

- I hope that it's a PV of theme of a-nation '03 as the style and artistic conception is in line with her current values and can be a match with POM: "There were things I lost on the way to becoming an adult,
but now I have someone irreplaceable
The passing wind was somehow gentle
This time tomorrow too I'll love you"
-- she lost a lot but got 2 children
-- being a mother and singing this song is really appropriate although perhaps when she wrote the lyrics the meaning was different to her

- Don't forget that this is a pregnant woman who will give birth soon. It's not bad to be able to do so many things. She became pregnant a second time in 2 years but has worked harder and been more active than before that time.


People are betting on it being for theme of a-nation '03 and most of the comments were positive aside from a few deriding her for her pregnancies and the nutter who was complaining that Japan stole the hanbok from Korea but they also stole it from China first

the kimono + sakura tree shoot is almost certainly a video shooting for SAKURA. she just posted a short clip on ig with the sakura emoji as the caption (she could also very well just be referring to the literal cherry blossom in the video, but it feels like it’s emphasised a bit too much for it to NOT be for SAKURA the song)

^Sakura (cherry blossom) is part of Japanese culture, and the symbol of spring all over the country. It’s not like she invented Sakura with a song lol I don’t think it’s for that song, nor any old song.
Giving me Green vibes.

she’s using the sakura emoji too much in all of her captions for it to be a coincidence. anyway that’s my interpretation. sakura also seems to be a bit of a slow burn fan favourite over the years so it feels quite plausible to me. it’s 100% not green that’s for sure since it already has a PV.

edit: could also very well be WILL since the lyrics reference flowers blooming and wilting, tho SAKURA seems like a more likely choice both for the album and for the PV

I don't think she would do a PV for SAKURA out of nowhere lol But I might be wrong...

Why so many are expecting a PV for an old song? I mean, yeah it would cool but I don't think that's the case. Also Shimomura-san just re-posted some IG stories that says "Pray For You"
