The single is #1 on recochoku's album chart today!

Zutto is #6 on the single and #3 on chaku uta charts.

Last minute is #23 and #16 on the same charts respectively.

And Walk is #47 and #36

Not sure about how it did yesterday since I couldn't check because I was travelling back home.

I also saw the CM of the Showcase DVD airing on one of the big screens there, so yay for publicity!
Thank you! So nice to see promotion:-) I was so excited when I heard Feel the love playing on Shibuya last year.

So there will be 3 PVs for the 3 songs?

Btw The "ikiteruyo~" in the last line of Walk is one of the most eargasmic moments in ayu's songs.

Awww, now I wish I hadn't spoiled myself by watching the preview. It looks like it might be a remotely efforted video for once. Why did they spoil the ENDING?

YES. Honestly, everything about that song is perfect. It's hard to describe how I feel abut it perfectly yet, which is actually quite exciting for me. I think it's definitely the best song on the single now. It just leaves me with various feelings. Anyway, I always look forward to that ending as it captures such a strange feeling.

All three songs are absolute & complete perfection! I must say, this is totally shaping up to be one of ayu's best singles, ever.

I love all three ballads, equally. They're all so gorgeous, beautiful & totally sound like ballads that only ayu can do best! "Zutto..." is so beautiful, and my most favorite part of the song has got to be it's chorus. So catchy & so totally stuck in my head! I love it! "Last minute" absolutely rocks. literally! It's totally amazing! Leave it to ayu to make such a perfect & powerful rock ballad. "Walk" is just so emotionally beautiful, which is why I absolutely love it.

If I had to choose one favorite out of all three ballads, without a doubt, it would be "Last minute". Maybe it's because I love lots of rock songs, ballads, etc..But there's alot of rock songs from ayu that I totally love, so "Last minute" is no different. I love it so, so much!

This whole single is just complete perfection & I truly believe it's one of the best singles ayu has ever released! Thank you, ayu! I also think I'll be listening to these ballads quite alot...within the next few hours! They're already stuck in my head because I love them so much.

It might just be the station thinking ayu is having 3 PV's because she usually does PV for her a tracks on singles, or it could even just be them putting the single name up because Zutto isn't the complete name of the single. Perhaps ayu has made a PV like Vogue / Far away / Seasons in secret, individually smaller than the full song but joins into the next, maybe that's why we were shown the end of Zutto in the short version

I guess it's just a mistake, but I'd love to see other PVs

I have the same idea with u
However I don't really want the type of pv as vogue/faraway/season. Just one for each song is ok.

I also wonder why they gave away the ending.
Moon was rather boring until the ink, but we didn't get that until the DVD. TV size and youtube both cut off right before haha.

Which article is stating that there are three videos?

Probably because the rest of the PV is boring lbr. Better advertisement to show the part that's remotely interesting.

---

After listening to the single a couple more times, I've realized my biggest problem with Zutto... is that the buildup just doesn't work for me. Specifically, the prechorus sounds romantic and warm, but the verse and chorus sound distinctly sad - and then I read the lyrics, and it's, uh, a hopeful love song? It doesn't add up for me. I really like everything up until the prechorus, because it reminds me of another BALLAD, but then the prechorus hits and the song loses all momentum and, worse, can't build any momentum for the chorus to kick in and make any real impact. Which it kind of needs to do, because the chorus melody itself isn't that exciting. So in the end, it's still an okay song for me, but would've benefited so much from a total rewrite of the prechorus.

Biggest problem with Last minute is still the god awful mixing. If the song was mixed well, I would probably actually like it quite alright. But damn. That mixing. It's horrendous. I wouldn't put it anywhere near the rock tracks of yore.

Walk has grown on me a little, in the sense that I can actually tell it has some semblance of a chorus melody now lol. But it's TK and I'm so fucking sick of these generic TK ballads already. It's basically just November but without the cute arrangement that makes November unique and kinda RPGesque.

My biggest problem with the single overall though is that it's just... okay. Zutto... is okay, Walk is okay, Last minute is okay. There's just nothing here that really feels like a song that needed to exist or enhances her discography. It makes me worry for the next album becoming LOVE again again honestly. These compositions feel like they fell from the same tree as LOVE and again and I wish she'd just get out of this boring middle-of-the-road safety music phase already. Colours felt like a step forward, but this is just 2 steps back.
