Yes, Ai-chan is a little princess, but for me, she is the secret queen of J-Pop. I like her and her character a lot more as the one from the real J-Pop Queens. They may have a pleasant character too, but Ai-chin is still the most funny star with a big affinity to her fans.

But I think this is the wrong topic to talk about things like this. Actually, we don't have to talk about this, because we all know that Ai-chin is the best, isn's she Giggle ?

^ YAY ! AiO is the bestbest ! Love

And i want to tell about love is born , i think this love is born is more Catchy than the other .
Ame iro parasoru is absolutely fabulous and she didn't explained ( i don't know if this word exist Shocked ) the Chu-lip dance and i like it because in other concert i found that boring haha. Her violin part is better than the violin on Honey from 4th . And Mousou choppu is funny.
Well i don't like Ramen 3 pun kukkingu Chu-lippers were not good and she didn't sang naturally , and i prefer when the night comes i feel more feelings and i'm more attentive when concerts are in night or dark.
The second dvd is funny Planetarium is good and ai-chin is so cute when she talk on Chinese <3 but i regret that Japanese Public is less active than the Taiwanese public But it's only one impression.

( Sorry my english is very bad -_-' )

^ Ai-chan has made me cry every time when I was playing Planetarium (the Chinese version), especially in the few hours when I was capturing the lyrics and translating the song into English, and even when I am typing this comment... am I way too emotional?

The first time when I watched the Disk 2 of Love is Born 5th, I wonder why the atomsphere is totally different from all other tours including that in Osaka. I asked myself "is that just a feeling of bias owing to my Chinese nationality?". However, blog entries, fan sites' comments around the globe talking about the Taiwan tour also said that Taiwan tour is different!Boogie Not only far more often you can see her smiling/laughing, but also you may sense how cute, real, excited, joyful and contented was from her facial expression time to time since in the airport, rehearsal, on the stage, even when she was talking to her crews/sobbing just before encore, till the end she singing "Always Together" (pls note: a few parts you may not be able to get from download area here).

I think it is fair enough to leave a comment, Ai-chan performed excellent overseas, unexpectedly, without any nervous or panic. She really enjoyed the tour seemed never think of that was an extension any task. I think she will do the same if she goes to Australia, US, France, Singapore and any other places in the world...

Indeed, I felt extremely surprised since I first received the short news clip from Taiwan TV, I once screamed out in my office when she said "I am Otsuka Ai", "How are you?" in Mandarin. Believe me or not, Mandarin, Japanese and English all are my second language(s), my English and Japanese are actually better than my Mandarin; really crazy, I even didn't know how to pronounce Otsuka Ai in Mandarin beforehand. No bias, really, but quite for sure you will regret if you don't watch Disk 2. Laughing

I watched the concert today, and I have to say: Great Concert Ai-chan Boogie . It's not so good as the Ai am Best or the LOVE PiECE Tour, but it's still a brilliant show! Ai-chan's voice is amazing, especially the ballads are very good! My favorite performances are:
Shabondama
Mousou Chop (the dancers are so funny here xD)
Ramen 3 Bun Cooking (same thing as "Mousou Chop", a very funny dance)
Ame no Tsubu, Waltz (the dancer here has a dramatical dance and Ai-chans voice is so damn emotionally Crying )
Happy Days (at the older concerts, I often couldn't understand what she sang because the megaphone wasn't so much understandable, but here I can understand more Smile !)
Smily (The idea with the bat and the smily balls which she shot in the audience is great)
Birthday Song (It's so heartwarming when the audience sing with her)
Ai (her voice her is perfect. True. Perfect ! ! !

You can see, the concert is great overall. I like the beginning where she appears out of this terrestrial globe too. The CHU-LIP performance was funny too, but I miss Mondo Blank stare ... The band was good to, but my favorite one Shoichi Tomomori wasn't there No . Well, but still a good concert!

I agree, she sang wonderfully Love, though i would have prefered a much bigger concert. I'll buy her next concert DVD Wink

^ thanks for the article, I noticed they used some of the same pictures as the excite music report pictures up in the gallery ...

There's just three pictures that are every so slightly clearer (however if my eyes are playing tricks on me ... which isn't surprising ... ignore/disregard this next bit) so I nabbed them from the site .. everything else you can right click ...

It seems whomever wrote the article had the songs mixed up.

MUSIC JAPAN wrote:
The third song of the medley, "夏空 / Natsuzora", featured a violin solo and a slightly quicker tempo. The audience began clapping to the beat again, and Otsuka Ai sang facing the audience and, getting into the music, danced a bit during the violin solo.

As she introduced the female trumpet player, Ai also played a small trumpet solo, then a very short duet.

Have just received my copy.

Just some personal comments:
Costume wise can be improved. It look like a wardrobe malfunction to me... Ai-Chan look the best in Jam-Punch Tour, long hair, princess like Costume...
What happen to her hair? Puffy hairstyle is just not suitable for Ai-Chan.
Who is her image consultant, its time for a change, haha???

The taiwan version was great. Ai-Chan singing in chinese....Wow. Look how delight the fans were. Esp for the part where the crowd scream "Mou ikai", and Ai sing a short part of "We are always together", it was so touching, was hoping that i was there to dip into the atmosphere. In the end of part 2, they all say "Ai-Chan Daisuki dayo!" Hopefully one day, Ai-Chan can have an Asia Tour or something, where she sing planetarium in english...

But in overall, I felt that the previous Love-Is-Born concert is much interesting. Maybe bacause of Akinori. WIthout him, just felt a bit weird. He always the comedy character in the concert... haha. Certainly miss him also...

just watched the concert dvd...
unlike most of you, i actually like this concert the best out of all the previous ones..

Mostly because of the mood of it, not to forget the nice editing, the thoughts they put into the opening (the earth thing, u'll know wat i mean if you've watched it), the medley,the surprise birthday cake, and i could feel ai chin is really on the mood that day!! her singings have improved (and also her violin Giggle Giggle ) again!!

also i like the way she looks this time, it's better than my expectation, i was a lil bit worried that i might not like her short hair until i finally got to watch this...she actually looks damn good with that hair!!!!

but it's also true that it would be better if akinori and mondo were there too.. but oh well, lets just hope they will make their come back in Love Letter tour.

haven't get to the bonus disc yet, saving it for later!! hehe Boogie Boogie
