I guess they are releasing it with the hype about the book between her and Max’s relationship and a few of the songs on LOVEppears is about him

Literally gasped 5 times when I saw her Instagram post...literally just rolled my eyes the same amount of times when I realized it was just a repackage of everything we have before. We know you have alternative versions/demos, etc or you could pay for some fresh interesting remixes/interpretations but no. Give us a TK remix of WHATEVER or a Sakanation remix of Appears.

I hope they'll have something better for Duty's 20th Anniversary including a proper release of that Duty PV and the original version of Key.

I found the A BEST 15th anniversairy just as... pointless.
Especially when it's not really including anything new. Or even the b-sides.
The MVs have been released multiple times already. A concert or some various live clips from that period would have been more interesting.

Again ayumi appealing to the sentiments of the past that neither she or her fans can't let go. She's going to continue re-realsing stuff from the past before she makes somehting new lol.

I have the feeling that the ayu I love is missing. I remember being excited about new songs avery year, but those days are really gone.

I can understand that she has hearing problems and that she enjoys singing in concerts but I feel she has to keep on releasing NEW music at least once every 2 years (a full album, not like trouble) if she wants to keep her fans on her side.

C'mon ayu. It would have been as easy as rerecord this album or a song for xx to make us feel you want to go back to the studio again.

Pleasw don't release rhings like this.

She’s at a point in her career where this will be normal.

Also, take my money because I love this album.

Boring...
This is all her marketing team can come up with?

It would have made sense for her 1st album but we have the second instead... Not even her best selling one.
It seems kind of random even if ok it's one of her most popular album and we know now she must talk about Max in it.

Not even a single new track, demo, retake... It's so lazy.

I think they’ll most definitely do something for Duty and Surreal too. We could even get a Seasons 20th re-release next summer.

If her drama is coming out in early 2020, this could potentially sell well over a few months, since the original album is presumably out of print?

Sales wise I’d say this is a smart move. Interesting, not really. But it’ll capitalize on the interest generated from the drama.

I just wanted some demos or something else interesting *sigh*.

This is also a reminder that I love that cover so much.

I am definitely getting this release however they waste a great opportunity to promote Ayu to the youngest generation...
As someone else said, I think they could have included a tribute single/album with current mainstream singers re-arranging/re-singing some songs. Even if they have not a great budget on this release they could for eg. only have used artists from Avex management.
Besides Ayu's core fans I don't know who's gonna buy it...

Personally as a fan, I would have like to have a re-sung songs and/or new (unreleased) song.

I like the idea anyway, the timing with the book is not that bad neither
and am looking forward for the package.

Lol why? No A BEST 3 because all her greatest hits are on LOVEppears? I'm not interested but I'm happy for those who are, I guess lol.

This is my favorite album so I'm excited regardless, but I would have loved if they had added unreleased songs or something new to it, even a Bluray instead of just the DVD would've been nice. Still, having that larger cover is great!

And I would love anniversary versions of the other albums as well - especially A Song for xx should've gotten a new release too, a lot of those songs could be updated to sound more modern.

LOVEppears is top 3 on my favorite albums but this is pretty underwhelming. I was expecting something like re-recordings or instrumentals (like what Hikki did with First Love), but yeah, no surprise here, it's been ages something from her had me excited for.

Like Chris85 said, gotta milk that cow.

I actually really like the Loveppears album and I’m a total sucker for first press collectible stuff so I did the pre-order. I’ll probably ignore most of the remix stuff just like with the original Loveppears, except maybe the orchestra ones. I'm curious to see how the remastered songs sound. It would've been nice if they included some acapella stuff like on A Best 15th Anniversary.

Does that footage even still exist besides those screenshots? I feel like they’re holding out these footages/concert releases for the Hamasaki Ayumi ~Super evolution box set~

Exactly!
Put that in the limited edition and watch it sell out.
Maybe we'll get a 25th Anniversary edition of A Song xx and it can be included in that?
I mean, not likely at all, but seriously. How can they be sitting on such amazing things in the vault and choose to just release the same things over and over??
