The chorus is pre-recorded (could be from CDL14-15) but the verses are sung live...

So glad we finally have a chance to watch it.
I am currently on appears now.
I am trying to be positive but I don't really like this show so far. She sounds a bit better than I thought she would but I can't say she sounds great. It seems Ayu is tapped out from all the singing she has been doing before this date.
That Virgin Road part felt so random too.
I don't feel any flow from this chapter of the tour. But I will keep watching.
For positives I loved the arrangement of appears. I was happy to hear NEVER EVER too.

This little Ayu fan is so cute! She is wearing the Marionette dress.

I believe that the live broadcast had the low-quality recording system and it makes the show sound bad. When I used the headphone of SAMSUNG S8, I think her vocal is good and I enjoy her "ourselves" performance. I am looking forward to the edited version.

Moreover, the repetitive songs are the reason for my boredom in this chapter, hope there could be a big change in the next one.

^I agree, the earphones help a lot to the quality, I used Skullcandy earbuds with extra bass and there was such a HUGE difference, it was really good tbh.

I like the whole show, yeah, a lot of repetitive songs, but at least I think it was fun! she looked really beautiful as well, the fan pictures didn't make her justice at all! overall, it was a good and safe show, nothing spectacular but entertains, I do hope for a big change in the next chapter tho!

Way better than the last Countdown. Personal favorites are ourselves, the chours of talkin to myself, and Love song.

I would agree that the mixing is not good but more bass can't transform someone's vocals. In this case it just adds the warmth that the vocal track is lacking a bit. TV broadcasting never really has high quality audio. It's usually always compressed.
After finishing the concert I have mixed feelings. Overall I liked it. But it was not very memorable for me. I really don't have a desire to watch it again despite being entertained. What I hated the most was ourselves. The whole last supper thing and the dancing around the table was so lame to me. I thought it was boring and didn't make a connection to Ayu at all. I guess just the overall aesthetic of the concert was boring. Plus Ayu's singing was not so good, regardless of mixing. But still a few bright spots, I actually enjoyed NEVER EVER, talkin 2 myself, Voyage, and My Names WOMAN vocals.
I look forward to Chapter 2. Hopefully she changes the song selection up. No more WARNING please.
It's too bad another date was not recorded with the better vocals. Great vocals would really make a big difference for me.
