Her earring is killing me. Is it there? Is it not? Did she forget to wear it and photoshopped it later? What is happening?

pedronekoi 1st March 2018 04:27 PM

I think her earring is moving with the wind. That's why it looks a little distorted.

truehappiness 1st March 2018 05:40 PM

There's similar distortion with her hair.

JackieRos 1st March 2018 06:33 PM

Her ear lobe piercing is super low that’s why the hoop looks weird,
you can see how low it is in the Winter Diary cover.
She normally wears dangling earrings.

There's some photoshop actions around her ear. Just zoom in. Different earring removed? That big one looks suspicious too.

voltron 1st March 2018 06:46 PM

In the earlier pictures she posted she is also wearing the hoop earring, so I think it is definitely there (unless she edited even the offshoots). On her left ear she has a second piercing (I think she actually has 3 lobe piercings on each ear), and a second earring visible in one of the pictures. Maybe they edited out the other earring in her right? Or maybe they just tried to cover up a hole that didn't have an earring in it?

pedronekoi 1st March 2018 06:58 PM

This discussion is getting a little too pointless lol

Yeah, I guess we should be able to see the pierces, even without the earrings

But Ayu really is under a microscope every time she appears.:no

tokyoxjapanxfan 1st March 2018 10:12 PM

Oh my god lol.

Anyway. I prefer the blue just because it's rare for her to use blue haha.

They also edited the piercings out in one of the other pictures, it looks like. Even so, she really just has super low piercings.

Retouching lace front wigs.

It's a small detail but my eye went right to the earring too :laugh photoshop slip.

I like the pictures and can't wait to see what's next :)

I donít think that itís a lace front, since thereís a pic on Instagram that shows her hairline and it looks a bit thinner in that same spot.

Anyone going to the fukuoka show on 12 may? Wanna see if anyone's doing some get-togethers or smth since I'm going alone. (sad)

I tried to get another 2 tickets for last Osaka date. No luck this time.

Andrenekoi 4th March 2018 03:20 AM

^Yeah, I'm not fan either, but it was really annoying reading about it all the time on the whole forum. One person shifted the subject of 2 or 3 threads to bash the covers and opened a new one to do the same thing :P

They were hilariously BAD though!
I saw it as funny, but I think that the reception to them in Japan must not have been great either because Ayu fires the old design team and hired a new one by the time You were.../Ballad came out.

Andrenekoi 4th March 2018 04:39 AM

I wouldn't mind it if people were making fun of it or making memes. But it was mostly drama haha

tsumekaze_ 4th March 2018 11:42 AM

TheReal 4th March 2018 08:44 PM

Is it feasible for someone like me in the US who isn't a member of any fanclubs to purchase tickets? Power of Music 2011 was my first Ayu concert I watched and one of my absolute favorites. As a string player/orchestrator, I always looked forward to another concert with orchestra.

Absolutely. Every time I've seen Ayu, I've gotten tix from resellers. You can also get them online through Yahoo Auctions Japan, but they're usually way overpriced.

Well, there was a huge shift in the teams in general around that time. Her nailist changed and so on. I bet the covers were the results of some drunken nights or something.

There are plenty of people selling tickets either here on the forum, ticket resellers, or even certain (Japanese) websites. Be prepared to pay slightly more :P

Just give a shout out on the date of the concert u wish to attend!

I mentioned general sales dates (if that's what you're looking for) on previous pages:
http://ahsforum.com/forum/showpost.p...5&postcount=90
General balloting for some dates is already open, for example from Lawson ticket.
If you meant official website balloting, I've no idea when/if it happens.

tsumekaze_ 5th March 2018 03:15 PM

^ i dont know what i mean because the japanese system is so difficult for me lol. I meant... I want to buy tickets for her show but until now only those who are TA members could do it. Now I can? from which sites? Also, could you recommend good reseller ticket shops in Japan? thank you so so much

polka-dot-jewel 5th March 2018 04:01 PM

^ Yokohama Tickets is one of the major reseller shops in Japan. I've personally used the locations in Ueno and Shibuya, though there are locations in Shinjuku and Ikebukuro.

I've bought from Yahoo Auctions Japan, but those prices are very very expensive. But at least it guarantees you a ticket before going to Japan. I'm not sure of other websites to get it from.

tsumekaze_ 5th March 2018 04:52 PM

Thank you, there are some other tickets i want to try and get from the reseller shops once I am there. Are the prices over there usually super expensive?

I still have one ticket for the April 8th anniversary show to sell.

Go in early to get your goods and tickets at the same time, I'd suggest. Last shows I went to that was 2 or 3 hours before the actual concert - just don't forget your passport!

General sales for Apr-May starts on 17 March, and 12 May for June-July.
If you have friends in Japan they could try getting them at convenience stores for you by then?

tsumekaze_ 6th March 2018 01:38 PM

Oh okay! And it’s not possible to get them online?

I'm not sure which channels they will release the tickets to. But generally speaking of services like PIA or Lawson Ticketing, you need a Japan address and phone number, plus I'm unsure if they take non-Japan issued cards.
Even if you could delay the payment by choosing paying at a convenience store, it would be the same as you walking into the store and getting the ticket at the multi-purpose machine.

If you mean buying tickets of someone else, then I recommend you do so through trusted agent sites. There's always fake tickets floating around.

Gorgonia 7th March 2018 01:42 AM

What is a reasonable price for tickets gotten from the lottery? I simply want to get some money back, don’t want the tickets to go to waste.
I got a ticket for May 12, one for May 13 and one for May 19.

You mean you are selling it at the venue after picking up in person?
I recommend you make sure not to get any amount above the ticket price including ticketing fee, just in case it's a police undercover :dead2
not even small change.

Can you not sell at the venue? I was wondering if they would have police.

I donít care about the fees. I would only be charging the ticket price. I believe you can sell it prior to the show and let TA know that someone else is picking it up.

I had trouble recognizing it to. I hope this new tour features a lot of rock songs

God damn it. Love that song but hate spoilers. Gotta remember to stay outta this thread until the show now.

Aokani 11th March 2018 04:04 PM

I was so glad when I scrolled through Instagram and suddenly reminds me started playing. It's a song I love, but actually rarely listen to. I guess it's because I want to be in a certain mood for it since it sounds so sad.

pedronekoi 11th March 2018 09:31 PM

Omg for a second I thought it was a new song or something cuz I couldn't recognize it lol

Any lip reading regarding possible songs on the rehearsals? haha

POWER of MUSIC in 2011 IIRC was billed an orchestra backing her with horns and such in addition to the strings. All they mentioned this time was strings for the tour.
