Not sure if this is Ai news worthy or if it's been posted before, but I searched first before posting.

This summer, Avex plans to release a compilation mix album to celebrate its 20th anniversary, which is officially on April 11. Tentatively titled "20 Nen 200 Kyoku," the collection is said to fit 200 of the company's biggest hits on 4 CDs. In all, the included songs have shipped a total of 200 million copies (counting singles and albums).

In conjunction with the album, Avex is producing a series of drama shorts that will be aired on TV Asahi (Kanto Local). The series' title is a play on words - "Otome" normally means "maiden," but the name is written as "音女," which are the characters for "sound" and "woman."

The drama consists of 2-minute episodes, with each one being an individual story that is themed around one of the songs on the compilation. Only about 100 of the songs are planned to be used. Episodes will air late at night Monday through Thursday (at roughly 1:23am), starting on April 7. Since 4 episodes will be broadcast each week, the project is scheduled to last for approximately 6 months.

Each week will feature an Avex artist or talento. The first week will star Ami Suzuki, with the first episode themed around Nanase Aikawa's "Yume Miru Shoujo Ja Irarenai" and the second based on Every Little Thing's "Mata Ashita."

misono will star in the second week. Other participating artists include TRF's YU-KI, AAA's Misako Uno, and actress Yuri Nakamura (formerly of YURIMARI).

While the compilation is scheduled for release this summer, Avex also has plans to distribute the dramas through DVD and the internet. No target sale date for the DVD has been announced, but it will reportedly include special cuts of the dramas, each lengthened by a couple minutes. The regular episodes will be available online at the project's website one week after broadcast.

The reason why I even mentioned it was because it looks like a future episode on 4-28-08 will be using Sakuranbo Boogie
Here's a picture & also a link to where you can watch the other episodes.

I've watched all the episodes so far. Some of them are cute. Misono's are silly,
Although unlikely but wouldn't it be nice if our Ai-chan was starring in an episode <3 I think it would be cute Love

I really liked Ami Suzuki's episode. I'm looking forward to AAA Boogie I'm also hoping maybe future episodes will have more Avex artists. Since it will be running for 6 months, you never know who could be in one. *crossing fingers for that ai will be in one of them* Embarassed Nod

Thanks for the Sakuranbo episode, pon pon! Love

It was cute, but I think these are more for the die-hard/mega fans, of both the songs and the participating singers. I don't really feel compelled to watch any of the others, unless, of course, Ai plans to act in one... Shifty

From the ones they are selling so far, but this project is suppose to last for 6 months so that's only the first 2 volumes. There will be more volumes as they air more episodes.
