Ignoring the font design because I give up on AVEX's design team. But the photos are really pretty! I love Ayu's dress! ♥ I think this may be one of my fav photos of her.

It's good to see everyone seem to agree on those covers!
They are pretty stunning. Quite simple yet conceptual and particular. You notice when they put efforts and thoughts behind something.
I'm glad l like the regular one the most, and the first music card.


I could have done without the strange lips and the lenses but you can't have everything. Oh and that font...

I love the gloomy, ghostly atmosphere and I really (really) hope one of the songs (at least) is sharing this atmosphere. I hope it wont just be generic winter ballads...

^Yeah, absolutely stunning.

I haven't got excited from ayu for at least two years. These covers (esp the TA and regular ones) are so nice.

(To: complaint-discussion on previous page)
Oh come on. Even the different fonts on that MiRu Magaxine Whatever look much better than the original. No typgraphy class needed for. I find it very ignorant to say something like that to people simply expressing their dislike. Yes there are complaints, but a lot of praises towards the covers on the contrary. Read those comments above me!!! Do not blow things up when it is not needed. Really

TBH it's the other way around. Anyone who CAN'T see how awfully matched the font is for this cover should be enrolled in a typography course ASAP.

We complain because it really is the biggest issue with her covers lol. Typography is usually dreadful. IMO this cover has the worst yet. In the past, I thought... well, maybe they just suck at it. Now I don't think they're even trying period lol.

Ayu's looking really good but that fugly font just has to go

Also I would be lying if I said the cover didn't influence my decision to buy the single.

i think they just need to stop puting any text on her covers, and the problem will be solved lol

Ayu now please don't f**k up with the songs, give at least one really eerie, haunting piece to fit the atmosphere of the covers. PLEASE. Something like sweet scar just a bit darker. And will be able to die happily.lol Is it a lot to ask?

OMG! O.O this cover are just wonderful, one of the best of her carrer I think. It gives me the feeling of her like a wintery ghost girl from XIX century. The moment I saw the cover I pre-order witout thinking about it.

Pieces where do you get your gifts ? They are cool , lol.

I really like the covers, she looks a bit like Kyary, but her style is like Namie's dead face. I like the instagram effect too.

I felt the same urge to pre-order!!

(if only money wasn't an issue XD)

I can't wait to get this single one day!

by the way, I know I need to get with the picture here, but can people who've joined Global TA buy the TA limited edition?

They will always complaint's. Nothing is ever good enough for some ayu fans Give it a few weeks after the release most usually change their tune
