Maybe by releasing a recut single it takes the pressure off any new single Ayu releases because it has to do better than this?! Though if they have given up on keeping singles high in the charts then why did we not have any for a few years?

Cause she didn't want to release singles anymore

Though I don't think giving us a bunch of mini-albums helped

Has anyone heard the XOXO remix yet? The two singles are confusing the living daylights out of me as to what is new and what isn't ~_~'

This HACKJACK mix for Terminal sounds something like she will use as a concert opener.

I'm not surprised if the first song for her next concert is Terminal, mixed with this HACKJACK mix one, just like Feel the love.

Anyway, let's forget about sales for a while and enjoy the song.

I had to call my best friend after seeing the 16, 19, 19 on daily. He introduced me to Ayu in 2006.

I think it is safe to say that Ayumi doesn't care about her career anymore. I don't know whether I should let her go or hope that something changes next year. But so far, 4 years after Ls, and a string of very, very bad decisions, I feel like a boyfriend hanging onto this relationship by a thread because I don't want to accept that it's actually over.

Me for so many years lol

Except I finally got over it and now we're just casual friends again lol

Anyway, after listening to the HACKJACK remix again, I find it totally pointless. The parts where her vocals were used are super awesome, the rest is just like... yeah, like someone else said, concert opener music. And just... idk. Just kinda generic. Well made but generic concert opener music.

I think for those whom have followed/supported her for a very long time , to see her career in this state now , even I don't have words to put just how I feel

And for my case I have followed/supported her since late 2005 which's almost close to 10 years . It's insane knowing that

1 part of me want to give up & not to continue supporting her anymore but another part of me choose to believe that hopefully she still has a little bit of hope in wanting a resurge in getting her career back + not just to let things deteriorate until it can't be salvaged any longer

She obviously cares about her career. She may not care about her sales. I'm so grateful she releases music and does concerts every year. Of course I'd love her to do promotion like she used to, but it's too much to ask. Thank God there's TeamAyu to keep me entertained.

If XOXO plug air edition and the bundle set were sold out on mu-mo means that it's a expected sales by avex so I don't think it's a bad thing. avex must have it's own way of marketing now. So nothing to really worry about. Charting really doesn't matter anymore as long as the music is still what I like. Unless she's releasing some shitty song then it's a different thing. Topping the chart might seem nice but it doesn't really say much of the song quality which is what matters the most wasn't it?

my thought exactly! shame on you saying she doesn't care if she didn't, why did she even release this? i feel like she's on stage of her career that she just wanna have fun! yes, it has only 3 track but all of them are awesome and i'm very pleased with this single

I think its the ballad fans cracking up. She will always release singles that appeal more to some than others, but she cant make all us crazy fan happy . I think its a nice little single. But I love this type of music so I don't have a problem with it. But give it time. When the next new thing comes, this single will be gold in there eyes compared to her new thing
