LOL ImpactBreaker. You compare this album with A BALLADS and how much worse A BEST 2 is, yet A BALLADS didn't do much better than these albums at all. It dropped like 400 000 in the second week.

I'm not comparing both sales wise evolution7931, but how much effort was put into each. I enjoyed that album a lot more than A BEST 2, but it was totally expected that the sales wouldn't be that good, because it had a bunch of recent released songs and it was a ballads compilation. But It's totally unquestionable that ayu put a lot more efforts into releasing A BALLADS than A BEST 2.

That's fine. If she tampered with too much stuff on this album, it might have irked people. Most popular artists don't mess around with the songs on their Greatest Hits albums. They keep them the way they always were so that the fans can enjoy a compilation of the songs they enjoyed over the years. That's the point of this album.

Do you think that the fact it's limited is a good reason for low sales ? That people will say "Oh, it's a limited I won't buy it" and "Oh, it's non-limited now, I'll surely buy it"??

I really don't get this point x___x
How would a LIMITED BEST sell more because it's just a BEST, and it haven't even reach the Limited stock ??

Please someone explain clearly because I REALLY don't get it v__v

01 HOME Mr.Children [37984]
02 YES 中島美嘉 [10028]
03 BEST~BOUNCE & LOVERS~(期間限定生産盤) 倖田來未 [8882]
04 EXILE EVOLUTION EXILE
05 ぶっ生き返す マキシマム ザ ホルモン
06 A BEST 2-WHITE- 浜崎あゆみ
07 A BEST 2-BLACK- 浜崎あゆみ


Mike Nakashima's original album would have sell more than BEST~BOUNCE & LOVERS~ =/
GO AYU GO GO!!!
Hope it won't be a huge drop for the 3rd week *-*
Mike Nakashima is an awesome singer!!

HOPEMAN @ JPM brought up something. avex changed the album from being a 350k limited BEST to a 'production period limited' BEST. (i.e. The album will be only produced from date A to date B) that's why it says '期間限定生産盤' next to the album title. (Which along the lines means that) So really, we have no idea how much avex is really going to produce with this album.

I didn't know Koda was trying to go against all the men in one week...she should've pushed her date back further after realizing so many popular male groups were releasing around this time...esp if she wanted all 350k sold. Congrats to Ayu by the way, I've been checking the thread regularly (everyday actually) and I'm very happy for her.

when did they changed this? Did they change this so that even the album doesnt sell close to the limited number, it will still look ok coz now that it changed, we dont really know if its still 350k limited.


I wonder if how many and which best albums will be released later on this year and how well it will sell.

I think he was talking about Kumi, not Ayu. They definatley care about Ayu's #1's because she's known for the records she has broken regarding solo female albums/singles reaching the top spot. It took Kuu a while to get incredibly popular, so she has no image to keep up. I think Kuu got shafted by her late blooming since avex doesn't seem to have qualms squeezing her for every dollar she's worth, whereas Ayu has a large degree of independence.

I looked at the 'Album release information' thing on livedoor, and they changed it on 2/19.

I think that some artists release during the "dry" period of J-Pop-sales.. where nothing really "popular" is released..

Whereas in this case, A BEST 2 was released JUST before a flood of highly anticipated releases.. D:

Well that could be a good thing, since more people will be in CD stores and Ayu's still probrably being promoted.

Well, it's true.

No one really released in Koda's 1st week, so Black Cherry got first. And BESTYO [released 11.29, same as Secret] got 2nd with 70k or so.

Then in Koda's 2nd week at no.1 Soul'd Out had a single collection, but they aren't exactly popular [this was also during the "Oricon counts 2 weeks as one" thing..].

Then in her 3rd week, ayaka's First Message popped out to get no.2 with 20k or something.. D:

Do you think that, NOW, if they change it to a non-limited BEST, it'll sell 10x more ?? I don't think so...
Do you think that the fact it's limited is a good reason for low sales ? That people will say "Oh, it's a limited I won't buy it" and "Oh, it's non-limited now, I'll surely buy it"??
That's exactly what I'm wondering too. Wouldn't make more sense that MORE people would buy a limited best because they know that they can't wait for a couple of more months until because it'll be sold out? I mean...isn't that the whole point of making it a limited release?
