I'm so pissed off 'cause AHS keeps crashing everytime and there's no leak

ayufan- 17th December 2010 07:02 PM

every time when AHS is unavailbe i had hope for a leak, but agai and again i was dissapointed

Pieces_of_SEVEN 17th December 2010 07:02 PM

^^I know right!
It's annoying.

Although I did wake up thinking it would be leaked...again. lol

StarSUCKER 17th December 2010 07:10 PM

Yeah, every time I see "AHS is temporarily unavailable" or that database error page, I get this little twinge of hope, even though I know it's nothing. >_<

Btw, I know this was a couple of pages back in the previous thread, but I just want to put out there that if you order from eBay, make sure it's from a user IN JAPAN. Even if everything looks legit, avoid Taiwan and Hong Kong users. No offense to anyone living in those areas, but you know how bootlegs are. Even if the user says it's an Avex Taiwan/HK release, I wouldn't believe it without great risk. :no

Anyway, we're so spoiled, aren't we? Clamoring for a leak. I mean think about it...that is REALLY SPOILED. :laugh Myself included, of course--I'm probably one of the most impatient right now! :headache

Pieces_of_SEVEN 17th December 2010 07:19 PM

^^Yeah, I got a bootleg RAINBOW a few years ago...I was so pissed!

I got a bootleg RAINBOW and I am... from a store downtown...this was when I was still new to JPop (2003) and clueless about bootlegs. They were couple of those realistic-looking bootlegs, but unfortunately the CD printing was really cheap and scratched off easily. I remember being SO MAD when I learned they were fakes...:grumpy Of course, now I'd know better, esp. since they don't have the Avex logo, and I've since bought legit copies. I cut up the bootleg booklets and made a collage for my wall, so that's something I guess. :)

Pieces_of_SEVEN 17th December 2010 07:31 PM

SO I realized last night that there's no generic ballad album track per usual (curtain call, Secret, meaning of Love, etc.) and I'm pleased!

sending mail (upbeat)
do it again (upbeat)
November (rock ballad-ish?)
Thank U (cutesy upbeat)
Like a doll (upbeat)
Love song (rockish and upbeat)

so...very interesting. haha

rakeru 17th December 2010 07:32 PM

^^That sucks!

You mean to tell me I battled with the crash page on and off all day for no leak? >.<

Michan 17th December 2010 07:33 PM

Ahs crashed for nothing =(.

lollipop sophie 17th December 2010 07:42 PM

WOW still no leak............ I went to work came back hoping for a leak :( went to sleep
(kind of) got back up no leak.....
anyway hopefully I can get some extra money to buy the new album!!! probably shouldn't though I've bought way to much stuff for my self already but I'm tempted since I like her new song!!

pepper 17th December 2010 07:43 PM

You know, it's a vicious circle

AHS crashed, someone told somebody that is crashing, so everybody thinks that there is a leak, and everyone click f5 furiously and.. thats why it crashing. XD

Probably because there were so many damn ballads in the singles, lol. Not that that's a problem, but it might have seemed kinda superfluous to add another ballad to the album. Fine by me; seems like there's going to be a nice balance this way. This album already seems, by the previews, that it's gonna have really good flow; much better than R'n'RC (in that department).

Yup...pretty much everyone's on at once simply out of anticipation. I can't imagine how difficult it's gonna be to get AHS to load when it really does leak. Dah.

Edit: lol @ pepper--exactly right.

Linoa62 17th December 2010 07:47 PM

Dream ON pics leaked on AyuChina.


And for those who didn't see it in the previous thread, this pic has been uploaded on baidu a few hours ago.

Oh lawd...getting close...

Ranma Matsuri 17th December 2010 07:48 PM

I wouldn't say to avoid Taiwan/HK users at all. Usually when a Taiwanese/HK seller says they are selling the Avex Taiwan or HK releases, it's legit. You can tell by the listing, pricing and the stock. Bootlegs are usually extremely cheap, the seller usually has a ton of them in stock and they always try to avoid mentioning which company printed it. It's the ones that claim they are selling the Japan release *brand new* for an abnormally low price that you have to look out for. Plus, a seller can easily say they're in Japan but they're not. I've come across quite a few that in the feedback section, the buyer says the package was postmarked from China. You just gotta be careful. :P

Back on topic: Yeah, I was quite disappointed to find that 10 minutes of refreshing only rewarded me with the Happy Box. >___>

My Rainbow 17th December 2010 07:52 PM

I just can't wait any longer!!! hahahahaha!! I'm laughing cause I can imagine myself being so obsessed about the leak that I don't know if I should cry or laugh... very frustrating... And I realized that I never got that obsessed about a leak until this, I mean, since (m)u I've been following Ayu and I was excited, but I managed to be patient to wait until HQ leaks came out... but with Love songs It's impossible!!! I don't understand!! D:

pepper 17th December 2010 07:53 PM

Maybe at least we can get Dream ON leak. I would be happy.

I guess I'm just more paranoid than most? :shrug I've just had bad experiences getting bootlegs before, and I want to be sure it NEVER happens again, especially since I can't really afford to buy replacements right now.

And you're right about false Japan location listings...but I usually go by that in addition to the feedback average/amount of ratings and what else they have on sale. There is exactly one eBayer that I currently trust as far as buying Ayu CDs, and even then I was really worried until I got my first order from him.

Er, yes; *ahem* back on topic indeed...how many other people laughed when they saw the name HAPPY BOX? Couldn't help myself. That's just a short step away from SUPER TERRIFIC HAPPY BOX!

Ranma Matsuri 17th December 2010 08:09 PM

Yeah, those pics are nice and all but where's the limited edition??? :o

Yeah, that's completely understandable. I have to be very selective with my purchases too, so I check feedback obsessively and even then am nervous to press the buy button.

Damn Ayu. She's got this album looking SO beautiful. I love the Last Angel page photo~

StarSUCKER 17th December 2010 09:04 PM

Hope CD-Only comes with the alt. cover, because damn that's gorgeous!!!!

Pieces_of_SEVEN 17th December 2010 09:05 PM

^Her legs in the alternate cover...wow.

Mami-chan 17th December 2010 09:09 PM

OMG!!!! This booklet is beautiful!!!! *___*
This time she did exactly the kind of covers and booklet I was expecting *_* Need the album to leak NOW!!!

Pieces_of_SEVEN 17th December 2010 09:17 PM

I hope it will leak in the next few hours...lol I'm tired of AHS being unavailable!

xLuna&1LOVE 17th December 2010 09:20 PM

^ Yeah, better :grumpy

Some pictures in the Booklet are very... A BALLADS, but that doesn't matter cuz that albumbooklet is one of my favorites. Yes! Good job Ayu! And the photoshop isn't that extreme this time.

I'm glad that there are some other people here who were disturbed by the nails of the person. Ew. Well, bite them all off then.

About random crashings: I think everyone on AHS expects at least a leaking (even it is the Dream ON instrumental, haha), I mean: it's today 18/17 (depends on in what time zone you live) december, so 4/5 days to go! I wanted to keep all the songs as a surprise, cuz I pre-ordered the album, but yeah, I'm so excited, I think I can't do that. And so is AHS.
Haha, I think? No, actually: I'm sure of that.

lilchan 17th December 2010 09:23 PM

that long pinky nail is kinda distracting me...each to their own I guess.

dammit, now I know there's somebody who is jamming to high quality love songs, do it again, etc. and it isn't me.

Ranma Matsuri 17th December 2010 09:26 PM

The crashing is getting extremely annoying.

Queen Bee 17th December 2010 09:33 PM

I have to say that I love the look of Love songs' booklet. It's very casual and sweet to me but that's just my opinion. I also love that it looks like the photographer relied on only natural light instead on a bunch of flashes.

truehappiness 17th December 2010 09:49 PM

Holy woah that is one gorgeous booklet.

isthisLOL? 17th December 2010 09:52 PM

This is pretty random, but I love how Love Song, Last Angel and overture got almost the same line going on played by different instruments (and maybe higher or lower?) xD

Pieces_of_SEVEN 17th December 2010 10:02 PM

^^I didn't hear anything like that in overture.

jbrat2219 17th December 2010 10:27 PM

Omg! I'm so excited! I'm not looking at the booklet yet but because of all the comments I'm not sure how much longer I can wait >___________<....

...it's 11.40PM here, and Love songs still haven't leaked to here...

If it won't leak in a few mins, I have to wait till the morning before I can come and see...:tired

StarSUCKER 18th December 2010 12:45 AM

I am seriously going to cry if this doesn't leak tonight.

Keiichi_JPU 18th December 2010 12:50 AM

I'm not looking at any of the album pics, I really don't wanna see the booklet yet! That's like, the only thing I won't allow myself to see :laugh I'll download the rip right away, but the booklet keeps owning the actual album special for me.

So that's why I have a question: is the Limited USB version's "LP sized booklet" just the regular album booklet, but bigger sized? or is it like a completely different extra booklet, just like the extra booklets with (m)u, Guilty and R'n'R C?

Pieces_of_SEVEN 18th December 2010 12:51 AM

^^pretty sure it's a completely different booklet.

Andrenekoi 18th December 2010 12:58 AM

Well, AyuChina has the limited edition too. Look at that pic of booklet with all tracks... the 16th is "SEVEN DAYS WAR" live version.

I hope it leaks tomorrow, at least.

do it again 18th December 2010 01:02 AM

holy **** like every single picture is beautiful... and i think it's good enough quality to see if her expressions would ruin them. but they all. look. gorgeous. i don't know what to do... there's nothing to ***** about... this is unheard of.

It's a completely "new" photobook. The USB version also has the CD+DVD booklet in it.

I don't think the Chinese forums ever get sample-copies of the exclusive versions like the Rock'n'Roll Circus box or the NEXT LEVEL USB.

StarSUCKER 18th December 2010 01:27 AM

Is it usually THIS crazy right before a leak? Because up until now, I've always mostly ignored "anticipation" threads...

lumieregrl 18th December 2010 01:59 AM

Sorta...but everything looks amazing this time around, so the anticipation is even worse.

jiarongisme 18th December 2010 03:06 AM

The booklet is gorgeous. The cover under the slipcase too! Oh my I can't wait to receive my album!!

kagami 18th December 2010 03:09 AM

I woke up this morning thinking it would have definitely leaked :(:(
I've only just realised how excited I am for this album lol

The booklet is stunning, gorgeous, sweet etc. Marry me, Ayu.

freedreamer 18th December 2010 03:13 AM

One more time AHS crashes like it did, I'm gonna get a heart attack. I always do when it crashes...i mean, for recent reasons of course....this is driving me crazy. I wouldnt be so mad if only they had shipped it...

Pieces_of_SEVEN 18th December 2010 03:26 AM

Come onnnnnn already! ayuchina needs to leak it! lol

StarSUCKER 18th December 2010 03:32 AM

Yea! and even though I dont wanna hear it yet, I STILL WANT IT TO LEAK...zzz
