The title of the page reads "Ai Otsuka - J-Pop's Toybox", which probably reflects how Ai keep giving us surprises and producing fun and happy music.

In the article it mainly discuss how Ai has evolved from a debut singer to releasing SMILY, her 8th single. It also talks about why use SMILY as title instead of SMILEY. I can't fully understand the article via the dumb translation but I think it says SMILY added some of Ai's unique personality into the title.

Near the end there's comments about her photobooks, TV drama release and her first nationwide school festival tour last year. The conclusion is we cannot set our eyes off Ai who keep adding attractive elements for her music and performances.

I'm actually planning to buy the DVD via YesAsia (not available yet) but I know I'm not going to understand even a tiny bit of the story (without subtitle), which sucks! I hope there will be subbed version released in the near future.

Tokyo Friends Premium Box (includes all episodes) will be released on July 8 while Tokyo Friends Vol. 1 to 3 will be released on July 22, 2005.

I doubt they would. Maybe somebody will sub them unofficially but don't expect an official release subtitled.
