^ actually that is not entirely true.
the majority of reviews love the album...

a select view find it to be a 'disguise', but it seems to mirror what people on here say too... I'm not surprised that some fans fell cheated, but oh well. Their loss.

I think people need to get over it. It's a mini, plan and simple.

If she wanted number 1 she/avex could promote more the album and get above JUJU. But now I think she only want to sell what her fans want to buy, not over promote it and get people who in fact don't want the album buying it...
I mean, sales must not be the same for old artist that for new artist is.

That's the smallest 2nd day drop in sales I've seen from Ayu in a long time, but maybe that's because day 1 was not as high as usual.

Wow, the fact that Ayu's only using her name to sell this, i mean there's no promo at all, is remarkable, after 14 years and a half in a very diverse market.

But promotion is still necessary to make her relevant. I wonder what she's planning for the next five months.

So true.
As much as TOX is the best tie-in she had in ages, debutting at top 3 is really good for her. The more I see this, the more I don't get who says she's over or ~a flop queen~ though. But whatever lol.

So.. go Ayu go!

As much as I love Song 4 u, Missing and Melody, they weren't worth standing at #1 place. It hurts me to say it, but this "mini album" has almost no content to qualify for a #1 ranking. Also, perhaps it could have reached higher if she actually got more promotion done? It seems minimal, previous album releases had multiple trucks with the album covers slammed on it (perhaps this time too), but we got those pictures before the release. I haven't seen any decent promotion so far for the "mini album".

But I don't think they were going for the #1 place anyway.

Ayu is the party queen, the lonely queen, but not a flop queen, XD, with the actual promotion for her, the sales are OK

Ayu definitely isn't a flop... Yet.
She hasn't dipped to CK/Ami Suzuki/Angela Aki levels yet.

When that happens, she will surely be partying alone. God, I love that tumblr pic.

Anyway, where are them covers/tracks? I cannot wait.

^True. I wonder how heavily it's being promoted in Japan.

Not always. JUJU's DELICIOUS was not a high seller, especially compared to YOU and Request.

DELICIOUS was sort of an anomaly since it was a jazz cover album... and it was also in English? Either way, there are more 'hits' for fans of her in LOVE STORIES and LIFE STORIES.
