UUUGGGGHHH Seriously??? I had 800 yen on my iTunes Japan account and I was JUST gonna download those three, and now I gotta get the album... *grumble grumble*

No, you know what? I'm not gonna. I'm gonna be strong this time. I'm not gonna give any money to this release.

If they release the book separately via TeamAyu I'll get it. But this whole release is just, like, looking for reasons to anger me at this point. Every time a release upsets me I cave and get it anyway, but not this time. I'm not getting this. It's too much money for too little benefit, it's TOTALLY not worth it.

I get it and I agreed, but unfortunately they not release it this way...

Silly question: all iTune version should be the same, right? Be it Japan iTune, Europe iTune and Asia iTune, the contents still be the same?

I just checked my area iTune (yes, again), they got the bonus tracks but the last two tracks for album purchased only, I was like "What?!"...

It's not appearing on US iTunes yet (and who knows when that'll happen), so I can't confirm or deny it here.

But yeah that is what's going on with Japan iTunes.

*siiiiigggghhh*

Well if it's any consolation, you can buy the vocal track for A Song for xx on its own.

Awww. I appreciate the attempt, honestly.

Yeah, I know you can get that one, but you know... it's more of a tease than a consolation, really.

So I did get mine today.

The photobook isn't all -that- special. It's mostly made up of interviews with a small group of famous people talking about Ayu and then the lyrics.

The amount of new pictures they have included are good, but they're mostly collages. Had they all been individual pages I think it'd be more worth it imo.

I mean it's good to have and see, but if you're buying it solely for the photobook you might be disappointed. But maybe not? haha I guess it depends on what everyone was expecting. I do think they could have done -a lot- with the photobook and video content. They could have interviewed Ayu now and have her reflecting back on it.



That being said, the box is very nicely made. The t-shirts print looks quite high quality too.

I got the one with her looking down and my roommate got the one with her looking up to the right with her hand on her mouth.

I wanted the one with the pouty face, oh well haha.


Now, next I want A BALLADS remastered. I want a remastered version of RAINBOW. It's killing me that we don't have one. And because it was limited to a compilation album the chances of getting it is super low.

Don't we have all the official vocal tracks/acapellas from that Ayu-mi-X box set that was released ages ago?

Edit: nvm, I forgot these must be acapellas of the newer vocals.

I just wish they could include english translation for OS fans...
RAINBOW was included in the DVD-audio and the quality was pretty good.

I will admit the packaging for the deluxe is really nice. Not enough for me to purchase it anytime since I own the original but still nice to look at.

@tokyoxjapanxfan: is the T-shirt good quality? Or is it like the white TA tour T-shirt? The material of that one was sooo thin and kinda see-through
