It seems like there's no first press bonus...but I hope there would be in her next single.

It's been a while only because she hasn't been releasing singles. Rocket Sneaker is only the 2nd Ai single not to have first press.

Ya I agree. But I didn't really consider PEACH/HEART had first press because it was just some news about her concert...

Fortunate! It makes me impatient. Did the DVD only come with "Rocket Sneaker" PV?

Yes, the DVD only contains the "Rocket Sneaker" PV. Which is kinda of a bummer, because I wish she made a PV for "One x Time". I find that song very beautiful.

I really like this single, especially the 3rd track "空とくじら" , I thought it would be a boring song just so it can be placed on the end, but I was wrong...the acoustic guitar brings a "YUI" feel (when i first listened to this song, the guitar start instantly reminded me of YUI)

just like this single very much <3

It looks like Ai most likely will rank 2nd place tomorrow on Oricon. According to this Jbook site that gives 24 hour ranking of the actual chart:

http://www.jbook.co.jp/p/p.aspx/bun_realrank_11/

Someone posted this link at Jpopmusic.com forums and it seems to be reliable and from my previous research, they are quite accurate. Of course Johnny's will get first place with Hey!Say!JUMP, and that is something no artist I know of can overtake, Utada's re-cut single is right behind Ai's however it's a re-cut so i can see it dropping really fast.

oh? hmm...i was also thinking it would be placed 2nd because of Utada's Prisoner of Love, but now you included HeySayJUMP *shivers*...that single might fall down to 3rd..........would be funny if it came #1 though

i spoke too soon? it fell down to #3...why are there 2 HeySayJUMP - Dreams Come True singles?

Thanks to edwx for schedule updates, it's been a while since we had TV lives. She should go on Music Station twice and do One x Time. Tongue I don't get my copy until late June/early July because my boyfriend put it in a massive order with lots of stuff being released next month.

The single is great, I really like it even if it's nothing special, although Sora to Kujira is probably her best b-side.
