Absolutely gorgeous. Whether if it's for the booklet or a PV, this album is SERVING on the visual field.

I always like seeing Ayu in kimono. I wonder what the video, should one exist, will be like though considering it’s very similar to the colour palette in “part of Me”.

That kimono shot is so flawless!! It reminds of part of me. Maybe that's her thing, releasing compilations and getting full japanese historic culture traditions on a new PV lol Love it!

Idk, might be Ayu with a kimono has some kind of supernatural powers or something, but a cover like that would justify me buying the album just for the sake of decorating my shelve.

Lol that's so right!!

But people, remember, the photo is just an offshoot of a video shoot - and from what we know, the director of the video (KS) does have a talent of making gorgeous things look silly in motion (Mirrorcle World..... for example ) XD

If by “silly”, you meant “creative and mesmerizing”, then I agree. He brings out the craziness in ayu and I love it. (Example “sparkle”)
