I'm not a big fan of Koda, I don't like how she has this "twin". Cause in one MV she's the nice girl, then the next minute...she's miss naughty SEXYYLICIOUS.
For example, in Juicy, it's like whoaaaaa! I like the song, but some parts in the MV really......
I don't see why she needs to degrate herself to something like that....She can still be a great singer even with out revealing her body, and dancing like that...on those men...
And in Cherry Girl MV....seeing her lick that stick like that...*shivers* or was it some other MV from her...?

Atleast Ai doesn't do that...[:

That's one of the reasons I think Koda Kumi is more likeable. She has more than one personality...she doesn't always have to be this sexy diva goddess. Kumi is more talented simply because she can dish out more than one appearance of herself while Ai remains this cute and innocent pop star....kinda shows she's not that mature in looks or voice. Sorry to break it to you but we're living in the 21st century.....times have changed and so has fashion and what is acceptable, what is not. Kumi's changing along with those times and there's nothing wrong with adapting in order to get farther in her career. AND NO she did not get where she is on looks alone. I hate when people say something like that. Her voice was a BIG part of it. Ai's voice sounds like something you'd hear from a seiyuu in an anime while Koda's voice is clearly more mature. I don't see how Koda Kumi is "degrading herself" by showing her sexuality. You are right...she can be a great singer without revealing her body and she has. Thank you for proving my point...it's pretty obvious you haven't really seen those videos of Kumi not revealing herself as much. I think Kumi haters are biased for the fact that they only look at the sexual side of her and think it's all wrong.

I wouldn't say Kumi is more talented than Aichin. Ai composes all her songs, writes the lyrics, plays piano, and sings beautifully. She has a girly voice, but she has great control and definitely knows how to sing. Not the kind of "seiyuu-anime-singing" you're talking about, if you listen closely. Just because she found her own image and identity and likes to stick to it, doesn't make her a boring or immature person; if anything it means she's clear with who she is and who she wants to be, which is a sign of maturity. And just as a side note, Ai's image has gradually changed since her debut. From songs like Kuroge or CHU-LIP, one can hardly say Ai is simply a cute, "innocent," girl. Tongue

Kumi on the other hand, is of course very talented as well. But sorry to break it to you, if it weren't for Avex's aggressive promotions and the sexy image, she would never have her big break. I mean, her earlier stuff before the Sexy kicked in was just as talented, but they didn't sell well at all.

Yes you are right about Avex's aggressive promoting and Kumi's new looks but that's only part of it. She can dance extremely well while also having a nice voice. As far as I'm concerned, she got a push in the right direction and the rest was all her pure talent at work. Without her innate abilities, she would have fallen short no matter how much promotion she got. Even without her looks, I would still listen to her simply because music should not be about appearance. Looks come second to vocals. Both Ai and Kumi have the looks but it definitely takes more than that to make it big. People saying her new "ero-kakkoi" image is what made her big are wrong. Music should not have to be about looks. I guess the reason I'm having qualms with Ai is her voice. To me, I think it's a hit or miss, you either like it or you don't. From my perspective her voice sounds cute-sy and girly...this is probably one of the ways she upholds her cute innocent image.
