~StarCatcher~ 3rd December 2014 08:48 AM

That looks so lovely.

I'm totally into the WINTER BALLAD SELECTION. It really flows well and got some of her best works ♥

So according to ayu's LINE posts, the PV will be available for purchase on iTunes on the same day as the single's release. :yes

It was actually a good question cause they always put things for sale on iTunes before the physical release

That's why I was wondering. We're going to get the PV on December 24th anyway so the PV being on iTunes isn't any sort of major news lol.

Isicio 3rd December 2014 04:32 PM

I like her dress and her hair for the pv. Something new!!

Pieces_of_SEVEN 3rd December 2014 04:39 PM

wonder if the winter medley will be remixed in any way...

I doubt it. Especially cause that would essentially remove the winter aura about them. If the summer-megamix-mashup wasnt remixed on the sunrise single (which it wasn't, and if anything, summer songs would make more sense to remix than winter songs for a winter release), I cannot see them doing so for the winter medley.

Sunrise 3rd December 2014 05:00 PM

Damn, iTunes videos are always subpar quality (but I'm glad we're getting PVs!). I hope we get an M-ON! HD rip.

itunes's everything is sub-par

nalini-dahlia 4th December 2014 12:49 AM

If only I had money so I could buy this! I haven't kept up very well, but have people already begun pre-ordering this?

I just wish I could get one of the notebooks that comes with it! XD (Knowing me and my inability to keep up with buying special versions of ANYTHING, I probably will miss out on all of the fun! XD)

I can say for myself that it's one of those place that annoys me to no end and yet I still use it because it convenient. It's like an endless cycle of, "darn it iTunes you suck, I'll never use you again!" that ends with a, "No, iTunes can't be down right now! I need it back!!!!!!!!!!"

XD it's so frustrating!

Speaking of which... I STILL can't get iTunes to go online recently! UGH, I remember finding a song on there that I couldn't find ANYWHERE else. I wanted to look it up, but I can't when it's not working!

Becky 4th December 2014 02:02 AM

Ayu looks beautiful in that picture. I love her hair. I'm excited for the PVs now. :)

!Lawi! 4th December 2014 12:49 PM

^Nope, seems like we'll have to wait a bit more!
I'm getting really excited as it gets cold, I feel more and more in a ballad mood, and I have extremely high hopes about walk !

Maemi 4th December 2014 01:30 PM

Are there any previews of the songs?

Aderianu 4th December 2014 01:38 PM

http://i.imgur.com/xXT7fDil.jpg

after 3rd similar picture I'm really afraid that ayu will sit on the floor for the whole video

Gustavopc 4th December 2014 02:58 PM

I feel like it'll be ayu sitting on the same scenario and then some other scenes with random people or maybe her dancers, like You were... or progress

primavera♥ 4th December 2014 04:05 PM

I wouldn't mind that kind of video. Jasmine used to make videos like that often. But I loved ones like Jealous because everything was still so pretty. If everything is really pretty, I won't mind a boring video. I just don't want it to suck and be tacky

TeamAyu2004 4th December 2014 04:05 PM

she looks happy!
Cant wait for this stuff to come out!!

tsumekaze_ 4th December 2014 06:24 PM

She's stunning.

nalini-dahlia 4th December 2014 06:32 PM

Everything about the hair and dress is just so pretty to me! That room is really pretty, too. I can't wait to see this!

Delicious n Bold 4th December 2014 06:43 PM

I like her hair colour!

//ABEST 4th December 2014 06:53 PM

i'm pleased if it's just her looking that gorgeous while sitting on the floor whole video, looks like it's gonna be beautiful and really simple pv :) at least nothing too fake like XOXO was

Yoake 4th December 2014 09:39 PM

Maybe they only posted this scene because they don't want to spoil the pv.
However, if it's the only scene, I don't mind for all that the quality is there. I prefer an aesthetics and boring pv than a nice idea ruined by a bad achievement as XOXO or Lelio 's pvs.

artcika 4th December 2014 10:41 PM

i don't mind a simple video, just make it pretty for the eyes.

Also in the other photo you can see how she's placed in the middle of a frame in the camera. The guy holding the monitor.. It should be rather pretty.

I hope we'll get something by the middle of the next week.

Surreal17 4th December 2014 11:15 PM

It's interesting how they decided not to release even a short snippet (covers or song) because I remember that we got Feel the love/ Merry go round very early. If I remember well, we knew info about FTL from Sept 2013.

These covers are nice.

BabyJane 5th December 2014 10:52 AM

I like the covers. Just, at least it seems for me so, she is wearing colored contacts again. I really don't like these.

But I hope that the bonus poster or the notebook will have the design of the Music card A. I just love that one (although it's just so a tiny pic ^^).

Chris85 5th December 2014 11:26 AM

Open mouth again:-) Other than that great covers.

Kashoku 5th December 2014 11:29 AM

It doesn't look like her at all. I'm not even slightly a bit of a fan of these.

hayasaki 5th December 2014 01:13 PM

Ayu will be on Music Station special on the 26th:)

tsumekaze_ 5th December 2014 02:16 PM

I love them!

artcika 5th December 2014 02:26 PM

i hope we'll get previews by the end of the next week.

Refix 5th December 2014 02:27 PM

This is like Moon but with some darker and eerie theme. Like it!

Earth_maiden 5th December 2014 04:00 PM

I love these covers, so wintery and tranquil! :luv2

Delicious n Bold 6th December 2014 12:50 AM

She reminds me of namie a bit in the pics tbh

adantatu2 6th December 2014 02:25 AM

^I thought in Namie too. Ayu is being perfect again <3

Refix 6th December 2014 03:37 AM

^ditto

Matt_rq 6th December 2014 05:21 AM

Ayu is prettier than namie in this cover, because there are "feelings" in her face. I love namie but her face is pretty the same in all her photos, like frozen queen of vogue magazine. Except when she smile (once a year)

clover_bali 6th December 2014 06:57 AM

"Zutto... / Last minute / Walk" 's cover remember me about CD DATA magazine (miss)understood era :/

Refix 6th December 2014 08:06 AM

I will be surprise when she sing one of the song, she bang that hair of her like what Lorde did. Rocks!!!

tokyoxjapanxfan 6th December 2014 11:15 AM

The ForAver Club mentions that the new single will be downloadable from 12/7.
Not sure how true this is.

LONJJONG 6th December 2014 11:38 AM

^ Nope. The fanpage will announce a group purchase for this single on 12/7.

~angel*ayumi~ 6th December 2014 01:45 PM

With bigger versions of the music cards, she looka bit strange on the last one o.o

pommy48 6th December 2014 01:46 PM

Awww noo, I was loving the covers, but now I'm hung up on how her lips look :bawl

-3-

pimenta 6th December 2014 02:07 PM

I saw the covers on my fb timeline and for a second I didn't realize they were Ayu's covers o_o

I really like the covers, but she looks so different!

does oricon count the music card sales as well?

Gustavopc 6th December 2014 02:52 PM

Her hair looks good in the close-up pics but in the full shot one it looks a bit odd :laugh My fav cover is still the regular one, I hope it's the one for the poster

Midori-chan 6th December 2014 02:52 PM

I love the covers, but I would love them even more, if Ayu wouldn't have done her infamous "duck lips"! The CD only-version looks the best and Music card I is very nice too! <3

I agree. They tried a messy out-of-the -bed style and well....failed a bit. xD
Covers are great, I loooooove the atmosphere!
Though some of her expressions could be better.

Pieces_of_SEVEN 6th December 2014 03:26 PM

oh thank god, I would have been so pissed if it went up on iTunes.

Glad I'm not the only one. The dead expression in music card C just screams Namie to me.
I like the fanclub limited edition cover the most. So pretty~ The others are okay. I like the feeling of them. Her bangs don't look so good here though.

Refix 6th December 2014 05:09 PM

^^thanks for the bigger cover!
The last pic from post #161 surely my least favorite.

//ABEST 6th December 2014 05:20 PM

first i wasn't sure do i like the covers or not, but now i can finally say i really like them! she is just so creepy somehow on these but i like it! does anyone know does oricon count music card sales? not gonna buy them if not

tokyoxjapanxfan 6th December 2014 05:47 PM

The best thing, for me, about these covers, is that they stick out in her discography. Sure it's another beauty shot, but dramatically different from a lot of her shoots.

Probably the colors more than anything. The cooler tones are really working for her.

Bonus points: Is Ayu a warm tone, cool tone, or neutral tone? I'm horrible at determining these things.

Toniayu123 6th December 2014 06:10 PM

I really love the covers! Already preordered TA version with 5 items and A5 notebook

I think thanks to the wonders of Photoshop, makeup, lighting, and everything else, Ayu is just about...any tone. XD

(Note: this is a completely uneducated answer...)

artcika 6th December 2014 10:25 PM

i eally was rooting for that full body shot, now when Aderianu shared the bigger pic.i'm confused lol what's going on there? xD

Violently Happy 6th December 2014 10:38 PM

lol in the body shot her hair looks like a wig that's coming off. I was also rooting for that cover! :/

Matt_rq 6th December 2014 11:00 PM

Her right hand on the body pic is strange like she is pregnant or something lol

Refix 7th December 2014 01:40 PM

Is that a snow thingy on her left side? Wonder if that pic her looks on the PV... or another pic from her latest magazine.

tokyoxjapanxfan 7th December 2014 01:49 PM

Snow!

Aderianu 7th December 2014 02:53 PM

another scene!

Pieces_of_SEVEN 7th December 2014 04:25 PM

I'm sure it'll be gorgeous, but I'm still only expecting it to be as interesting as MOON or crossroad.

Earth_maiden 7th December 2014 04:29 PM

I just hope it leaks before I have to go to the airport on the 25th, since I ordered the fanclub edition and I won't get my copy until after I get home. Or do I just want to buy the regular edition in Tokyo so I can listen to it there and just have too many copies? (I don't like have multiple copies of CDs, I don't see the point...)

freedreamer 7th December 2014 05:06 PM

If it hit could hit JEWEL's plotless level of gorgeousness hahah
but MOON's PV for me was awesome. It was symbolic :D probably her last amazing PV for me

(side note they totally need to update her ENGLISH site which is still stuck in A SUMMER BEST Wth..)

I'd be really surprised if it doesn't. If not, we should at least have a radio rip or something by then!

So jealous of you going to Tokyo...I miss it dearly. I hope you have a phenomenal time!

Refix 7th December 2014 07:37 PM

something tells me that Ayu somehow lay on the snow after having an accident or so like that BALLAD PV. Oh the revenge of that black cat! lol

Loving the desolate feeling of the single covers!

Toniayu123 8th December 2014 12:37 AM

I was wondering, will the music cards work internationally this time? The FLT/MGR didn't but maybe with the global TA and such...I hope this year's work

Sunrise 8th December 2014 12:54 AM

What are music cards?

Toniayu123 8th December 2014 01:01 AM

^ A card with an access code to download the sinlge, they can be bought at mu-mo and TA shop

Gustavopc 8th December 2014 01:02 AM

Are her eyelashes white in the covers?

kotora 8th December 2014 04:09 AM

Zutto... <--- common winter ballad

Fixed it. ;D

It's probably going to be something like this.

Zutto... -Days mixed with momentum. Typical winter ballad part 84.
Last minute -No idea but I have a feeling it's going to feel like No way to say.
Walk - Red Line mixed with Life, mixed with My all, mixed with Seven days war. Typical concert ending song part 6.
