Pretty sure she's mature enough to deal with it. I guess she just reached that point in her career where she's happy to focus on writing music SHE likes instead of producing hit song after hit song.
And let's not forget that people still go to her concerts and even though her fanbase got smaller, her remaining fans are still loyal.

Older fans simply do not know this album is out. How would you know? I KNEW it was out and have trouble finding at at Yodobashi...and I was looking right in the new releases bin. There was only 2 in there, both CD-DVD versions.

Without radio airplay, which is hard enough in japan since radio sucks here (DJs never shut up) and without in-store promotions, you would think Ai-chin was retired.

Actually, radio airplay and promotion are better than Re:NAME. After the music station, she was the most discussed artist on twitter JP with over 10,000 tweets, and 1st in Celebrity ranking for 2 hours.
The missing thing is : a good tie-in. The most loved songs by everyone (except for Sakuranbo) are Planetarium, Renai Shashin, Yumekui, and songs like that. I'm sure if she gets a drama or movie theme as tie-in for her next song, it will work.

But she's aware of that, she's also asking to her fans to help her for the promotion as well, and talk about her new songs around us, as well as request on radio and TV.
Her manager also wrote 2 days ago that, indeed, nowadays, not a lot of ppl take the time to buy singles anymore, but he really want us to support her by purchassing it.
They know, her and her team, and they are working hard about that.
Ai-chin said this year is not her 10th anniversary, but she feels like it's like her 0th Anniversary. She starts again from nothing, and needs to do her best to challenge herself.
As long as fans go to her live, and we support her, she will continue. She actually wanted to retire during her break (from the end of 2010 to 2012), but her fans and her team gave her the strength to be back.

Sorry for that long post, I'm also sad her 1st day in the chart isn't good, but let's not give up.

I am posting from HMV grand front Osaka and the standee is still here but the Ai chin section only has one copy of aio punch and the empty plastic tray that once held those few copies of Moa Moa. 1 copy of 1 mini album...that is it. I am still looking but it is certainly disappointing.

This is sad to hear. Sad I'm glad she decided to continue!

The song is on #28 today.


By the way, what are your thoughts on Fu Fu Fu? Smile I like how it's more on the electronic side (much like the remixes from AIO PUNCH) and her voice sounds really nice. It's definitely B-Side material, but what a lovely B-Side it is!

It's also out of the Top 50. Like everyone can notice when they go to the shop, it's very difficult to find 1 copy of the single. I wouldn't say it's out of stock, but the shipment is very very very low.

I got mine at the Yodobashi by grand front on release day with the poster. In the new release bin they had 2 copies of the DVD-CD. They probably had more but I spotted it right away so didn't bother looking in the regular Ai-chin section shelf to see how many others they had.

But at HMV the shelf was empty...I only went to see the standee.



I agree with LBH...finding the single is very difficult...if the store has them, they are always well hidden. You have to be looking for it to find it. No one is going to stumble across as see "Ah, new Ai-chin!"

That is a big problem for promotion.

What I find more amazing is that we are all from different parts of the world yet have inspected the same HMV shelf in Osaka over the last few days. ハハ
