The whole Japanese music industry leaks of direction for years. Although Utada tried to step in the globe market, majority people at that time seemed to be negative about the japanese singers. And then the rise and popularity of BTS, BLACKPINK put Japanese music into the deathbed corner.

Well, I am sure Japanese music can be great again someday.

The MV is at 400k views in two days. Is this the fastest video to reach it?

Yes.

Quoting Katsuyuki from Summer Again thread:

Quote:
In the beginning the difference wasn't too big, Summer Again had ~220k after 36h vs Nonfiction's ~250k. But Nonfiction already had 500k views after 4 days vs Summer Again's 500k in 7 days.

I'm very glad that you like my remix I tried to give a current dance aura to the song.

I have the same problem with the original music arrangement. I love old school jpop sound, and I like MASK melody, but this arrangement in particular sounds kind of cheap and lazy.
anyway, I think this one is a nice single, better that her sixxxxxx and Trouble tracks.

With tighter budgets and PVs not really making money anymore, I can’t imagine that ayu would wear a latex outfit that was only visible for a few seconds.

I’m hoping there’s another PV for the next song. Perhaps that song will have “happy lyrics” but a sad slow ballad to continue the story of MASK, like how Microphone and Sexy little things worked out.

I hope extra shots will find a place in the photobook. The blackhaired ayu didn't have enough time at the Summer again PV

It sounds like many other TK songs, and they all are not so good. That's not ayu's fault, that's completely fault of composer and arranger who is the one person, as we know. I wish ayu never work with him again until he create something really outstanding.
At least cover is cool.
Amen to that. Ayu 90's songs aged so well because they were different from standard 90's jpop
This one sounds older than first Amuro songs, what a waste of energy
