Actually it is pretty well received in Japan from all I've read in the net.
On amazon.jp e.g. people really like it! And reviews are pretty harsh at amazon normally, at least here in Germany.
I wouldn't look too much into the lower ratings for the 2 editions that weren't reviewed much.
There's a japanese Ayu stan called something like Pan Ayu rating every single edition of JAPONESQUE down.
Though there are some more bad reviews as well.
Overall I was surprised the Japanese rated it that good with such a western sound!

It's more that Kuu isn't "in" or solo artists in general and of course that she's pregnant and not available at all for the public at the moment.

ayu_ready? 7th February 2012 03:25 PM

I love the cover! I like it how Driving Hit's have a common concept, at least in covers :)

Corvina 7th February 2012 03:47 PM


24,813 倖田來未
Total so far
93,835 + 24,813 = 118,648

25k is about the same Dejavu sold in its 2nd week.
That's great!
And it's at #4 again today.

^Finally!!! Waiting for OS press is very unnerving... :thud

matt9210 7th February 2012 05:59 PM

Could someone help me with the clear file that comes with first press of JAPONESQUE? Is the image the same as the cover of the version that was bought?

Or is it based on the retailer? Which version did cdjapan have?

tenshi no hane 7th February 2012 06:02 PM

^ I bought the CD+DVD, but got the CD+DVD2 cover as clearfile.

lol awesome thread title :laugh

happiholic★ 7th February 2012 06:19 PM

I think that looking at feedback for artists online is a little misleading, especially on site where people can just vote stuff down without an account. The haters love to go around and do that, kinda like how the Kuu threads were being voted down here on AHS. Some people are immature.

I love the cover for the new Driving Hits, but it looks like the last one, which I also loved :laugh

emi♡ 7th February 2012 06:24 PM

best title ever.

If I try to skip it manually, I get to see a part of Brave and if I skip Brave I get to see the last part of All for you. Very weird... I could send it back but that's too much trouble so I'll just download the other PVs :)

Why don't you e-mail the seller you bought it from? Sometimes they don't make you send it back. There have been times that I was given money back and got to keep the item. It just depends on the seller. Perhaps they can do something for you?

SKYia 7th February 2012 07:00 PM

Driving Hits always have great covers :)

wildconnetta 7th February 2012 07:00 PM

Best. title. ever.

Gustavopc 7th February 2012 08:19 PM

Love the title :heart

I can't wait to get more pics from the DH shoot, they just keep getting better year after year :love

krauterol 7th February 2012 10:12 PM

hahaha love the title!
and those are pretty decent sales for JAPONESQUE :)

MissElin_ 7th February 2012 10:24 PM

Oh yes, the title. Nicely made.

Ayu_Love 8th February 2012 12:02 AM

At first I was worried for the sales for JAPONESQUE, but I don't think it is doing bad at all. It's doing the same as Dejavu in it's 2nd week, and I heard it was down to #5 the other day, but now its at #4, so I think all is good! :D

The Driving Hit's 4 cover is awesome! Very pretty. :D

I have to say though, I love JAPONESQUE, but after this and Dejavu, it would be nice to see Kuu go back to more of her Jpop routes. :) Like she used to, more Jpop influenced by western, instead a lot of western songs :)


Some Screenshots of Kuu talking about JAPONESQUE on Goo Talk. You can see some weight has been put on, on her face, can't see her bump though. ): Actually, she really looks like best second session era there hahaha.

MsMiyabi 8th February 2012 12:43 AM

^ she should be about 4 months pregnant now. So I think she will start showing soon. Her tour is canceled right?

dannysan 8th February 2012 01:08 AM
