Album size question

The first albums of Ayu I bought since Love songs were sixxxxxx and M(A)DE IN JAPAN, the Blu-ray version for both, and I was surprised to see that they're both the size of a normal CD not the usual wider version. I won't complain, though, because it takes up less space. ^^a

So my question is, when did these releases start? I looked online for scans and watched some unboxing videos, but it's pretty vague. I know that the obi for LOVE again is wide, so I guess the earliest would be Colours?

Thanks in advance. ^^

I’m not sure about CoLOURS coz I got the CD only version, but from sixxxxxx onwards releases (I got Blu-ray version - Japan version) are slim case.

LOVE again is wide case.

Could MA's wide and slim vers be related to reprints? Mine is also wide but it's a 2nd hand version so I don't know exactly when it was bought. My first thought was cost saving since I assume slim cases are cheaper but they would have had to pay for redesigns of the obi & spine so I wonder if it actually was financially beneficial overall?

I thought the CD+DVD version of Memorial Address was always in a thick double case?

I bought mine copy of MA when released (CD+DVD, wide case), in early 2004.
