The DVD from the regular CD+DVD is a Region 2 disc. The PV is formatted widescreen (oh I wish this were a Blu-ray). The 2nd track is just the making of the PV, shot on what seems like a camcorder so it is like an Ai-chin home movie, more true color. It shows the PV storyboards a bit, some behind the scenes Ai-chin, very short edits...no real conversation or anything. There are also some very quick scenes from then shooting the photobook. It is nice to see her and hear a tiny bit of her "real" voice, but the making of isn't a must have...just a watch once kind of thing.

I haven't received the Deluxe kit with the concert DVD in it yet. That had to go through Tenso.

I am bummed about the live. I will be in Japan on the 25th of December but have tickets for the Perfume Tokyo Dome concert so I can't go to the piano live.


Ah right I thought you were talking about the DVD as in the concert DVD. I guess DVDs like those are never really worth it Sad
But it's all to support Ai-chan Smile

I really liked the single!!
Re:NAME is growing in me after all, Hello me has a Tokyo Friends vibe on it, and Toilet Paper blues is a very fun jazzy song (Shachihata with lyrics ? lol)

Now I can't wait to see the live DVD !

EDIT : Ai is #6 for her first day ! Which is not too bad, and a bit higher that what I thought, but we all know how it works. She should drop from tomorrow, but let's pray for a first week in the top 10 !

Cute pic, and Perfume's Level 3 in the far upper left.


EDIT got my Live DVD today and in the deluxe pack is also a separate CD with Hikari on it. I haven't watched or listened to them as I am still at work.

The cover from the Hikari CD single included in the L9C Deluxe package. It is only a simple heavy weight 1 sheet paper. The backside has the lyrics. Sorry for the poor scan quality, the software I normally use isn't compatible with OS X Mavericks yet so I had to use the built in one which doesn't have a lot of features.






The cover for the DVD Concert edition is the photo with Ai-chin sitting on the chair. Like the PV DVD edition, the Concert DVD is also Region 2. There is also a COMMENTARY TRACK!



It doesn't get any better than this latest concert DVD. It is simply amazing. The arrangements have been updated but are still all classic Ai-chin. The only song that felt out of place was Gomen Ne. The best part? No crazy costumes, no crazy wigs...just adorable Ai-chin. It really had a great 2006 feeling. I am so glad she is back. I would have loved to see this 2012 concert live. I will definitely go to LiB 11.

This DVD is a MUST HAVE, it is great from start to finish.

The new single is really nice. Smile I haven't listened to Toilet Paper Blues yet because I can't find a download link but Hello to me is pretty good.

Edit: Just listened to Toilet Paper Blues and damn, her voice sounds amazing! I wouldn't say it's my favorite song from the single but I still liked it a lot.

Is anyone here fluent in Japanese and willing to translate the 3 songs?

And you're right ! The live was amazing, and I had great memories going there. I remember I noticed some new arrangements like you, to make them a bit refresh !
And as she says in the commentary, we can see her make up is very light, she has almost nothing on the face, just her natural beauty Love

You will not miss it. While the CD single version is good, the version of Hikari from LiB9 is the best. I ripped the LiB9 DVD to ALAC and have been listening to it non-stop. All of the arrangements are great...best live yet.

The single is #8 with 9,364 copies sold ! Not bad, and she was able to make a Top 10 with this new single =)

These are her worst first week sales yet but yeah, not too bad if we take into consideration that this is her first official release in 3 years (and not one of her best songs either Laughing ). I didn't even expect her to crack the Top 20 so we shouldn't complain haha.
