I voted for CD+DVD, I'm always a fan for this type of single. Its not that much of a difference in price to the regular CD only and I love to have the DVD (either the PV or bonus PV shooting) Boogie

and I always find the CD+DVD version covers look better than the regular edition. Tongue

i have a "toshiba" laptop, zyzzyva Nod
so do you think that would work? Confused
but they're so expensive on yesasia! is there anywhere else i can get them cheaper? Confused
i've bought ai's albums off of ebay, but i think they're the "overseas" version Shifty
not that there's anything necessarily wrong with that, right?

I don't like to buy singles anyway, I usually buy only albums. I am lucky to live in Los Angeles area, we have so many Japanese stores including book stores where CDs are sold, Asahiya and Kinokuniya. But CDs from Japan are very expensive! $12.50 for singles, $37.50 for albums usually, so I don't buy singles. And sometimes I buy albums on line, they are cheaper that way, usually $29.95 in YesAsia.

Mostly Japanese DVDs will not play on American DVD machines, but frequently they will play in American computers.

wow...i didn't know there were that many japanese stores in LA. i need to get out more. ahahaha.
well back home in cozy little SF there was a japantown...so i could get stuff there. but i didn't get out much back there either. besides my interest in j-pop really only fully developed after i started college...so since i don't get out much here it all rests on yesasia.

Yes, Mansley, there are Japanese shopping centers and stores many areas of Los Angeles! You tell me where you go to school, I will tell you where to shopping! LOL! Only three places to purchase recordings though.

i am at UCLA. hedrick hall. room number...oh god. don't want forum members here stalking me! actually i think with what i said here it is enough so that you could facebook stalk me to the point of room number. you don't know my name but no one else in hedrick would have the mansley avatar as their facebook picture. if anyone likes, i wouldn't mind visitors as i am a friendly person.
still i am way out of touch with transportation. i think only at the beginning of this month did i first use the bus line, and i was with other people who knew where we were going. (beginning of this month is very late since this is now my second year here)
in any case...do i really need to know where to buy japanese stuff? yesasia is perfectly fine. (actually...with the confusing instructions given to me by my res hall, i don't really know how to fill out the fields for online orders properly so they won't send my packages back. so two cds are stuck in my shopping cart at YA until i get not lazy enough to ask my front desk for help)

Wow, UCLA! Some clever people in here, huh Wink Anyway, I voted for CD+DVD, although it's much more expensive for just that extra PV. But it's still worth it to have everything of Ai. I did buy a few CD versions only though, because I didn't really like the PV, like Frienger. I have no idea why, but I just can't get into that song...

I buy the regular CD singles, because I can't use the DVDs in my computer (they're region 2, and my drive is region 1). I would rather buy the CD+DVD versions if I could, but they're also more expensive (1800 instead of 1050).

I guess a truly hardcore fan would buy both versions of all her singles and albums to get both variations of the cover art. But that would be pretty crazy.

yeah, only after i posted this poll did i realize that possibility. i think considering we are on an ai otsuka forum, it is easily possible there is someone here who does that. but i can't edit the poll it seems so hopefully if anyone does that they will say so.

Okay, Mansley! You are close to Asahiya bookstore on Sawtelle, sometimes I go there too, there are many Japanese people all ages (many young!) living on West Side around Sawtelle and Barrington and Olympic, okay? west of San Diego Freeway. This store is in a Japanese shopping center two or three stories! another shopping center across the street! both have small parking lot, so ride bus! Anyway this store has books, magazines, calendars, mouse pads, games and crafts, and CDs and DVDs. Also maybe you will like Giant Robot store which is nearby.

i vote the plain single. CD+DVD is for just one or two things on the disc...which will usually be included on her next album anyway. Now, if it were to have making-of or in-studio recording footage..then I'd reconsider! However, I mainly buy the CD singles for the melody -n- instrumental.
