Ohhhh interesting!

Candles in Japan tend to be pretty expensive. They don't really have the candle culture that the US does. Of course cheap candles are available... But in general people don't use them all that much.

We're paying 7,200円 for the candle???
On the website one candle costs 55$. We pay for the candle and the package.

I don't use scented candles, and shipping something that delicate from Japan is too big a risk for me. I'm not paying $75 extra for some extras on the DVD that I can't understand without subtitles (or a whole lot of work and patience, anyway).

Yet again avex marketing makes me feel like a stupid second-class gaijin who doesn't matter as much as the Japanese fans! Well done, guys, well done.

I said it on twitter too but I'll say it here - I own an A MODEL cell phone that I can't ever use, and even I think this is a ripoff.

It just occurred to me. Has fairyland ever been performed on an actual tour? This needs to be done.

Still think that it's too expensive for a candle and they really need to subtitle the interview. It's like they don't care about oversea fans... Kpop did a good job in this as they had subtitles for their oversea fans...

Anyway, we'll get CD quality of the new songs soon!
I think nagoya will get
・ XOXO
・ Terminal

Osaka will get
・ Angel
・ Lelio

And Tokyo will get
・ What is forever love
・ NOW & 4EVA

Looks like the fanclub DVD/BD will also have the music producer/PV director comments like in A CLIP BOX. I want that but the candle is a bit too much, haha.

I read somewhere it was perfomed on ARENA TOUR 2006, but it ended up being replaced with Born To Be... because of some costume issues, i think.

I think fairyland was definitely swapped out for Born To Be... at AT06. However, I don't think it was actually ever done on the tour, just changed in the months leading up to the tour. The visuals just scream fairyland, yet Born To Be... ended up as the opener.

i remembered Born To Be... was the opener right from the start. the costume for this song used to be an orange one. but the costume went through several changes and became the blood red one we see on DVD =x as for whether was fairyland swapped out? I hv no idea!

well, fairyland was performed on CDL 05 - 06 (not a tour).

I'm not surprised by the prices, I mean, this is Avex we're talking about. A BEST LIVE DVD with the bonus costs 60 bloody euro.
But I'm intrigued by the candles choice, I wonder if they mean something in the theme the new album will have!

It's a little odd that they're importing the candles from the US... but these are some pretty famous candles. Oprah, Michelle Obama, and a load of other big names seem to use them. They're also made of soy wax.
