I just miss Kazuyoshi Shimomura doing Ayu's photoshoot right now. Even that Sunrise is bad, this is even worse.

Okay... First she wows us with the 'how beautiful you are' covers, which were AWESOME. And now she releases this...

I hope that she's trolling us, I really hope so! :/

What do 13-years old japanese Ayu fan-girls learn from this? Act like a prostitute, be sexy, be naked and everyone will recognize you as an tough woman? x)

People all over the world fighting for more rights for women and then a person with such an huge influence like Ayu appears in her underwear on an album cover and degrades herself.

Let's just hear what the music is like. Maybe it's completely different from what I see in the covers.

What happened to all the new PV's she confirmed she was shooting in Japan? Are they for a future single? I'm really confused.

Thank youuuuu. "Furry" subculture anyone?

i wish people could look at things a little more analytically instead of jumping to unwarranted conclusions by just focusing on the obvious.
Nicely put!

That's how the regular press will be...for first press, the album and the album DVD are bundled in a 2-disc case, and the CDL DVD is packaged separately. But the regular press packaging will indeed be a 3-disc case a la A BEST 2.

Hold it. So to compare with Duty, you don't think she looks more trashy dressed up in black underwear and leopard print super highg heels - standing in a doggy style position all ready for sex. And that on MIRRORS with freaking rose pentals over it?!

Really, you will have a waaaay harder time defending THIS album to your friends I will promise you that.

Spoiler:
We had such a nice time. We started dating in t2m PV, took it slow you know, let our love grow. Then it got really serious in 2008. Then after AT2009 we moved in together. It was lovely. Then on AT2010 he asked me to marry him. He was such a sweet. And Ayu gave us our blessings. She was also such a sweet. Now me and Maro are such a sweets together. Aaaw, how time flies.

Duty was FAR more trashy since it catered to the typically Japanese "cute sexy" image. She literally looked like a child in that booklet, she attempted to look child-like and innocent.

This is a huge step-up from her latest album-covers(except for FIVE)...actually I think these may be my favorite album covers of hers...no fishlips, no photoshop fails, no plain bad photography...

I'm not bother about her sexiness-trashy look. It's not new for her, so I don't see why people should think she lost her dignity. I mean she's not naked with spread legs and with the A logo on her.. ehm you know it.

Sparkle was trashy and I loved it, but it was cool. These covers are cheap and poorly made. I don't hate them, but I don't love them neither.
I just hope the album will be amazing despise covers. Like (m)u = amazing album with fugly covers.

I think the "13th album" might be a sticker or just for official site.

lol. I think that's going too far. It's not about how much clothes she has on or not - its about the presentation of it. She has certainly been naked or next to naked on album covers before - Loveappears, Rainbow and I Am. But those were presented pretty classy. She looked sexy and beautiful, but not trashy. Same with Duty for me; always considered it sexy but not quite into the realm of trashy. In some ways, elegant even. For an artist with Ayu's lyrical and musical talent, I don't think she needs to resort to these kind of tactics.

And trust me, I've met Miss Ellin and Choco and they seemed far from boring and having no imagination.

I might have to step away from the forum to let the fact that these might be the real covers sink in.

Anyone want to take bets on whether or not Timmy had something to do with the covers? I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED, AT THIS RATE, SEEING AS HOW HE'S BEEN INVOLVED IN EVERYTHING ELSE.

And what about the bar code in the front?

Depends. My friends are American and incredibly used to seeing images like these on album covers... I don't think they would bat an eyelid. I think the entire "Duty" shoot represents darker sexual undertones... forbidden fantasies, if you will.

Ayu isn't blatantly sexy as often (especially for an ALBUM cover), which is why some people are going to be shocked by this. I was only shocked because the entire middle section of the album looks like they're going to be midtempo ballads and the covers seem out of place. But... we'll see.
