Hmm...well, that's bigger than the store closest to me that sells Asian CDs! Crying So I guess it's a decent size. Nod I wish I could go there...
Oh yeah, about how much do the CDs there cost?

She can't answer you right now, she's in Japan for the next three weeks or so.

The Japanese book stores here are the only retail sources, and CD albums are usually about $35-$40 including excruciating California sales tax, singles are about $12-$15. It's a challenge, because the boxes are marked with the price in yen, based on the exchange rate for the day the book store actually received the CD, so you don't know how much you're going to pay till you pull out your wallet. On the bright side: the book stores have multiple purchase "clubs" and keep track of your purchases over time -- you can get discounts and free albums as you buy more and more.

Oh really? Ok, well, thanks for the heads up! Nod
And if you think California sales taxes are brutal, just come up to Washington! No I think ours are the highest...but I'm not sure. I think they're like, 8% or something, but yeah, I really don't know.
I think the singles in the Kino I went to a while ago were more expensive than that... Confused But the albums sound about right. I think I payed about 50 bucks for my Ai am BEST. Sneeze

Washington state sales tax is 6.5%, but each city in Washington has an additional 1%-2% local sales tax. California state sales tax is 8.25%, and Los Angeles County has an additional .5%. Oregon has no state sales tax.

Just for fun I called about the price of the latest Ai Otsuka album, and Asahi book store sells it for 4695 yen, which is about $38.75 plus $3.40 in sales tax, prices subject to change without notice and so on.

There's a moral here somewhere, but I'm not sure what it is.

I recently became an Ai Otsuka fan after listening to this album! I love it! Now I have to get into her other works now.... My friend recommended this album to me and I'm VERY satisfied. Her ballads are what hit me most though. Sakuranbo is an addicting SONG!! No wonder why it charted for so long. I recently watched a performance of Planetarium at a concert she performed. I was touched! Also shocked me that she was playing the piano as well!

(Woah pretty comprehensive for my first post, but what the heck Tongue )

I don't know Japanese that well so here's a rough meaning/translation.

Very secret~ The Ai am BEST DVD contains a HIDDEN Clip! Giggle

With your DVD remote arrow buttons,

press UP 9 times,
...then,
press RIGHT 9 times,
...then,
press LEFT 9 times,
...then,
press DOWN 9 times.
...then press ENTER.

The hidden clip will be revealed~


I tried the instructions but i still cannot watch the clip, are there other instructions for HK version?

If you really can't access it by trying those instructions, then I guess you could just pop the disc into the DVD drive on your computer and select the file.

Meitantei L desu, you also need to do those steps during the skydiving intro, but if you cannot get that to work then look for the hidden clip (Babashi) on the DVD in file VIDEO_TS.VOB, from 0:11 to 2:33.

I finally watched the "Best Of BABASHI" hidden clip! Giggle Ai-chan looks so serious, but soo CUTE in the video. For those who are still having trouble trying to access the hidden clip, here's what you have to do:
Note: You have to do this during the opening scene with the guy sky-diving.
With your DVD remote control, Press Up x9, Right x9, Down x9 and Left x9. Then press "ENTER". The opening scene will then stop, and the hidden clip will start playing. Have fun! Smile


Ho Ho!!!! I want to cry No

I try to access the hidden clip for several times but didn't work.

Lucky I found your suggestion so I can did it. Hoo Reyyyyyyy !!!! Boogie

Thanks thanks thanks (I really want to kiss you) Love

" Caffeinated " wrote something wrong

it should be :

Press Up x9, Right x9, Down x9 and Left x9. Then press "ENTER".

remember Down before Left.

Oh oh, sorry to bump this thread, but I saw the special version that came in a red box with a stamp at a store a few months ago!

I didn't buy it, because I already have the ai am best cd+dvd, but it sure looked very cool.

They only had one copy in stores, must be rare, I imagine!
