I totally agree. Without much movement she sounds so unique and really good.

I loved Seasons <3 but i really loved everything about this! UGH! <3 i hope people see that ayu is still making music!

At the beginning she talks about how it is hard because there is "ayu" and then there is hamasaki ayumi and like how its hard and people expect her to alway be ayu and stuff.
also i think she mentions about how she started writing lyrics via letters to her producer and then he told her they were good etc. etc. xD you guys know the story

If anyone wants to know kind of the gist of what she was saying
when she was crying she was talking about how at the time (when she left to LA) she did what she thought she needed or was necessary, but was unable to be with her fans, how she deserted japan (or people said she deserted).

its along those lines lol sorry if theres mistakes and stuff! my Japanese is slowly improving but its not perfect (far from it) lol.

I got goosebumps from watching! Ayu was so good and the major thing for me, is watching her perform Step by Step made me actually like the song A LOT (I thought it was okay before).. I think I'll go listen to it now, haha.

Great vocals! I'm very pleased with her performances.

Overall though, it goes through a very basic summary of her career philosophies for herself. First they touch on the fact that she writes songs that focus on sadness and pain & that girls in her peer group sympathized with the "ibasho ga nakatta" theme in her early stuff; then she talks about the separation between Hamasaki Ayumi the artist & her personal life; then she talks about how she creates big Vegas-style shows in order to create a "dream world" like the kind she experienced when she first saw a Vegas style show herself; then she touches on Movin' on without you a bit; then the narrator mentions that the shows on this tour were 3 1/2 hours long, and Ayu goes into the reason why... this is the part where she cries, and explains that she really felt stuck in a rut & thought that moving to LA was the right thing to do for her at the time, but when she did she felt like she was abandoning everyone in her home country. She couldn't help but think about it the whole time she was in LA, and ultimately she was like "screw it, this isn't good for me, I'm going back to Japan" and when she got back, everyone was still there for her just like they'd always been. So she couldn't help but stick around on stage during the MCs for as long as she could.

D'aawww. ;_;

Anyway, I'll have it translated properly HOPEFULLY tomorrow, but it'll probably still be kinda rough... but it'll be good enough for subtitles.
Thank you for this.

AYUMI HAMASAKI SHEDS TEARS ON NHK SONGS
http://aramajapan.com/netizencomment...s-react/21174/

maybe someone could translate Girls Channel recent comments about Ayu?
http://girlschannel.net/topics/442199/

as I understand, the attitude towards Ayu is still negative despite her confessions

I never read those comments from Girls Channel, they all come from a bunch of hateful teenagers and I don't think their opinions should be taken seriously.
