Jaejoong in blossom pv? That will be interesting! I'm so glad ayu didn't choose Shuya or something as the lead. Even though ayu won't be in the pv, I still hope she'll appear in it in some form...like a picture of her somewhere...lol

No offense to ayu, but if shes gonna make him appear as a love interest for the PV, isnt JJ like 8-9 years younger? That's like robbing the cradle...

So much news!

So the B side is a cover! Why not. I didn't know the original song so it's not a problem.

The covers... are just awful. Three big "no" for me. Hello stupid face/pose again...
Another bland background... Awful outfit... In fact I may think they tried to make it look like vintage, really tacky (80's). It works with the CD only cover (headshot). But this idea doesn't match with the other covers. And the font doesn't bring this feeling.

So visually it's a disaster. Just under S/S in my list of "ayu's most awful covers"

I bet Shimomura shot them.

And I'm not sure I like the idea of taking that famous guy for the PV. It seems they really want this single to sell...

It kinda looks more like the guy who shot MOON though.

Oh, Ayu fans and their overreactions.

Now I'm definitely going to buy that single. SEVEN DAYS WAR sounds so beautiful, I can't wait to hear her version of it. And what I've heard from crossroad doesn't sound bad too.

I can't stop laughing at them. It's so ridiculous and over the top I can't take any of it seriously.

I love the dress enough to ignore the fact that her face is a trainwreck <3 I love the first two covers for this single so much.

I hate that the b-side is a cover though. It screams laziness.

I don't think it's lazy to have a cover. I find that it's a lot harder to make a decent cover of a previously released track.

There's a lot of work in covers. Some artists just tend to not work as hard as others. Since Ayu rarely does official covers on releases, I think it's safe to say that she'll work hard on this song. I expect nothing less of her.

Wow cover...SEVEN DAYS WAR definitely has links to the 7 day concert and probably the fight to her 50th single like someone said..cool idea. I totally dun get the covers though...her expression looks like something shinomura will do....and he has done photos like that as well...

It means that no one wanted to take the time to write a new song for this release. That's laziness. It's her 49th single, part of a quick release project to celebrate her 50th single. Why is a song by someone who's NOT Ayu in here? It annoys me x_x...


I like that cover in the newspaper article better than the regular CD-only

isn't there supposed to be "unused covers" with L? maybe that's it. Or maybe there will be a tour version of crossroad (and maybe L) available at the special final live featuring that cover

I'm referring to everyone who goes in a "This is terrible, worse than S/S!"-rant every time something new comes out, haha. It's like get over that already. I have this feeling that in 5 years people are still going to be complaining that X release has worse covers than S/S and it's just gonna keep going like this... ugh.

And what the heck at the different cover...? I wonder what that'll be for?
