Oh my! I thought I used the word "harsh" for real and I wrote hatred, instead.
Sometimes I write in a hurry and after all of these years, I still getting confused with the english terms lol.

I think I'll fix my post

This article makes me feel so much less alone and so much more justified in some of my opinions. It's not just me, I'm not crazy!! XD

As Ayu's sound has changed, so too has her fan base - especially internationally. I feel less and less like I fit in with other fans, but clearly my sentiments are shared by at least one other person.

Thanks, interesting read though its sad they basically say when she sings happy that's when they disconnect but its great to see that shes picking up wind again with her Japanese audience but this is how you review something. Nothing about bad font of hair and all that blah good insight

Thanks for this! I've definitely heard a lot of people saying that this is a return to form for ayu. Personally, I don't see it. I see her timeline of releases as MOSTLY a forward line...except for Party Queen, there was definitely a wrong turn there...lol

Ayu Concerts I've Attended:
Arena Tour 2013: A BEST LIVE
Arena Tour 2015: Cirque de Minuit
Arena Tour 2016: MADE IN JAPAN

You're all welcome guys. I'm happy many of you read and enjoy this review and I agree that we actually need more reviews like these. I'll be keeping an eye on this blog

edit: the author actually went to the 6/6 live and wrote a long review about it. http://ongakudaisukiclub.hateblo.jp/...5/06/19/222940 anyone interested in a translation?
I have exams until mid-july so I can't really focus much on translating but if you are willing to wait / if someone else wants to pick this up feel free to do so.
