wow I've just come across this interview on YouTube!! it just randomly appeared on the main page. BIKKURI!

such a wonderful video! it's like magic to see them talking like this. and I think Max was kinda shy.

I hope to watch another video with ayu! at the end of the video Max said 'fans from TA, everything depends on your demand!'

awwwww I need to see them together more!!

Thank you so much for the translation summaries, this feels like such an important interview. I didn't expect to see anything like this happening soon.

Thank you MKAyu for the translation!

I found Max's perception of the state of Ayu's career, her creative output, and the desires/expectations of her audience (and how they contrast with her own creative dreams) quite intriguing. He clearly recognises that Ayu's career does have the potential to continue being successful if only she would become increasingly receptive to the expectations of her audience. I don't think anyone can realistically expect her (or even want her to!) to return to releasing an original album once a year (especially with the state of her hearing now, and as she has young children), but there does appear to be a yearning for new music among her fans, and this is clearly implied in some of his comments. I imagine that Ayu was informed of what the questions asked in the interview would be focused on, and subsequently, maybe this can also insinuate that Ayu herself is interested in receiving direct feedback from her audience regarding what they want to see from her. Great interview, and I'm excited to see if Ayu and her team do indeed take fan feedback into account!

No problem!

I'm very curious about Ayu's mental state. Ayu is very clear--she has what she wants for herself and her youthful hunger for recognition is gone. But is that because she achieved that recognition and is comfortable where she is? Or is it burnout? Or is it a change in interests and priorities?

Her reaction and future work will look very different depending on that!

I don't see her being on the edge of burnout / haven't seen any signs of that. I think she has just achieved all the recognition she needed and has now more mature view for life. She has done SO MUCH in her adult life and had (and still has) amazing career. It might be change in interest and priorities. She is also a mother now.

Imo she perfoms because she really loves to be on stage but recording album or mini album doesn't seem to be in her future. I think those days are over now and it's okay after all the content she has pushed out there in the last 20+ years!

Thank you so much for translation, MKAyu!
I'm still impressed how early ayu wrote A Song for XX.

Ayu probably reached milestones she dreamed about. She has family now. Her daily routine changed a lot because of it, maybe she doesn't have that much time or strength to create songs. Or maybe not sure how fans will react on calm and happy ayu. Feels like right now she wants to be on stage more that doing anything else.

This is what I hope is the case. I hope that she's satisfied with all she accomplished and now is just in it to enjoy her life--to write lyrics when the mood strikes, to support her dancers and teammates, to tour for her fans, and to raise her children. It's the best case scenario, and I'd be really happy for her.
