Original Posting 6/9 (2005):
Yes, they are going to release a movie for Tokyo Friends after the huge success of the DVD release. The information is released on avex group holdings main page, you can download the pdf for more details here (in Japanese).

In the pdf they mentioned about the new marketing strategy, that is opposite to the traditional "drama -> movie -> DVD" and "movie -> DVD -> drama" model, Tokyo Friends uses "DVD -> movie" approach. Interesting eh? Giggle

Anyway, we can all look forward for Ai Otsuka to go bigger when the movie is released. She's hitting every type of media right now, first music, then drama, now movie! (she also has her own column in zipper and B-PASS magazine, and her own radio program called Otsuka Ai ai-r Jack) heh, she'll be the next biggest thing in Japan in no time! Go Ai-chin! (yeah, Japanese people called her 愛ちん) Boogie

I believe most members here are very willing to buy the DVD if they can afford it or have access to online purchasing. Nod

I haven't bought the DVD myself, the reason is I think YesAsia has pulled up the price way too much. Mad I do believe part of the reason is due to the shipping cost of the premium box, but 50 US dollar more than its original price is just ridiculous. fyi, the original price of the DVD premium box is only 9333 yen, around 84.91 US dollar, but YesAsia is selling it for 135.99 US dollar. No

On the other hand, you can have a look how much Amazon Japan is selling the premium box for. It's only 7839 yen, around 71.32 US dollar! (almost half the price of what YesAsia offers) If you combine with JAM PUNCH Tour DVD purchase you can save up to 2662 yen! For this reason, I might ask my friend to buy it for me, but I'm not sure if she'll be annoyed keep helping me to do all these things. Blank stare

After the drama, now comes the movie. Very nice ai-chin. (Ok, I'm going to start calling her ai-chin here, it's cuter than ai-chan ^^)

Yup yup. It's not like we don't want to buy the original. But the online purchasing is too expensive for my 'student-pocketmoney'. But I'll surely buy it, if it's available here, in Malaysia.
