Wow! Osaka power! lol
Today is our last day in Osaka!!
We will make this a great concert, for we will laugh, cry, sing, and dance together! ☆
Again, are you ready to start?
Ah, yesterday, I was looking for something. In fact, it was not one thing. I couldn't find it, I couldn't find it, I was so worried, worried... I almost gave up.
But, I found it, at the end of ends.
I was ashamed to have doubted, even for a moment.
I swear that I will not lose like this!
I firmly believe this!

Looks like...
7-26-2009 23h58

...the rumor that says I cannot lie seems true. Today, I saw a person whom I have loved since I was a little schoolgirl, and if I had decided to keep a poker face, here is what my head would have looked like if I had the time!

It shows how much I love it!
No, seriously, it's a great look...
I am sure...
the injury to my hand is fully healed.
Yesterday, I did something I could not do at the end of last year...
What emotion! (T_T)

Yeah! ♪
I do not want words that are said one day and forgotten the next day.
I did that quite a bit, more than usual.
If it is not safe, simply look for another time.

Tomorrow I'm going to Osaka! ♪
To all of you who have waited for this postponed concert, thank you so much! We will finally see each other! (*^_^*)
Two dates in Osaka, right before a-nation. All of us here are very pumped, and we will cheer together, okay? ☆

Today, I drank three glasses of tea-momi in style!


The short summer...

How many memories can we make together? ♪
...I'm in good shape, while drinking my tea-momi. Hello! (Drink with me, too?)
Ah, tonight, we will start in Osaka! ☆
I fear that I will be exactly on time, with just enough time to catch the last flight...
As for Itami, it is not too late.
The heat is so much that, if it is true, that even though I am pleased we are there together, please pay attention to your health, remember to drink, do not wait too long outside, because I want to greet you with big smiles, ok?!!
Now I begin to play the mother hen lol.
Say, you do not want to light fireworks?
It will be fine... ok?
We WILL!!!!!
Ah, I finished my glass.

It does not end... (part 4)
7-25-2009 0h52

I returned safely from the dress rehersal (`_')>
While keeping a high concentration level, I think we've all come together as a coherent group.
I briefly saw a real a-nation!
You will enjoy!!!!!
I am continuing, for I have a lot of strength, so much that I can make long sentences!
The fingers that are touching this keyboard are numb!
Jack is amazing.
It has been on for 24 hours!
Oh, about the time when we finished the entire PV, I was very touched by seeing the vast applause by the staff, who had dark circles under their eyes, like pandas!
It is like saying, I love making these things!
And I love all of you ☆ who read what I write!


Ah, want???
7-25-2009 15h35

On my message yesterday afternoon, I wrote:

It appears you all had very different interpretations (^_^
It's probably my fault, it was confusing.
I received lots of messages like, "You have a new love? Bravo!" lol
If I have one, I will tell you, I promise!
What I meant is that I want to see you all, the public, whatever.
During the setup of the PV, seeing your eyes to all that glitter, your looks seemed super serious, and I had tears in my eyes.
My life, which, for a time, is at rest, has a lack of your smiling faces.
I will not cry again, Osaka! lol!
If I saw you now, I will weep...? I will??? lol
Tomorrow, go to all those places I see in Odaiba, and we'll be in good shape, okay? ♪ ♪ ♪
The power of TA has surprised the NHK staff, who are part of the staff at FujiTV, who will provided even more of a great spirit for our group, ok? ♪ ♪ ♪
Now, I will have my second glass of tea for today - Momi!

See you later! (^_-)- ☆

24-07-2009 05H02

Must deliver the PV before the end of the morning! 
It still works § 
Directed to me through the whole staff "images", everybody is doing its best to offer you an even better work, even the best one! 
Aah, the dawn arrives ... Wait two seconds. 
Oh, this morning I found this in san Choko position.Genre, there seems to swim ... 
Genre, the tabs are not folded in reverse? 
Is it therefore onfortable for him, this position ...?

Bon, allez, a last effort! ! !
But today is also the general buttie a-nation ...
Finally ...

It does not end (part 2)
24-07-2009 07h01

Yes. Just. I am still.
Apart from the fact that I feel my brain react a little slower, so good. Finally, I think.
Courage us! ! ! ! ! ! !
In fact, I have a lot of time waiting.
Hey, you're awake ☆ come play with Chon chan ...!
CALL ME ....!

It does not end (part 3)
24-07-2009 15h24

... yeah, it's not funny.
it becomes serious. (sweat)
If I relache even a second, I think my eyelids stick to one another without effort.
At this moment: "Ayu san, Ayu san!"
a voice name is magic and wakes me up! lol
Good! The screen begins to blur m'apparaître, sucks ... lol
Anyway, with a staff that makes so many so much effort and without taking rest or sleep, I want to give me the best way! !
I have the impression that it was still less than an hour ...
Well, I go directly to the dress rehearsal (^ 0 ^;)
Not worry, I'm still young in their thirties! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !


As I no longer have any concerns, hesitations, suspicion or fear ...
I just think about it, so pure.
And I believe that this is not one.
Yet, I like a shadow that hangs in my heart ...

Being in a whirlwind
18 July 2009 5:11 AM

It seems those two are happy about it---!(^_^)!
Sure it's surprising, but I'm not wrong (lol)
Hey, when it gets right down to it, this team here is the best!!!
Well, we're having a meeting now, so. lol
One observation of note, we agreed on the Welcome. lol
Well hey, that's important!
If I'm the only one in charge, it'd be wrong to say that that's fine, but the things I like most are all still definitely wonderful things, I think.
As for me, after this change, I still have alot of work to do. Not especially promising.
This is a challenge---...
I digress saying that, but still, the work never ends!
Boing..... wheeeeee--------.

Oh, that reminds me, today, at a major intersection, this guy on a bike took off his helmet & leaned his bike against a wall, and he did a great big huge yawn & stretch, but he was covered in sweat. It was weird, seeing that, he seemed very free & kinda vulnerable.
When I saw it, I couldn't help but watch in fascination.
It's not like it was an amazing spectacle, but it came across as really dazzling, to me anyway.
I even felt some pain in my chest... 
I thought about how there are things that we've lost & can never have again.
Of course, I chose this way of living, so there are absolutely tonnnss and tons of things that I CAN have.
Among other things, getting to see all of you is way up there.
I can say that for sure. (*^_^*)
So anyway, I feel the manager behind me looking over here, so (lol)
I need to get back to work here.
I look forward to getting together with everyone today~o/~
TA is the strongest! o/~ o/~ o/~

Everything was shining, and nothing was scary
But back then I was only chasing beautiful dreams
The wind that cut through was too gentle,
I remember tears rolling down my cheeks
In the process of growing up, there are things I lost.
But, you see, there are... people who can never be replaced. 
The wind that cut through was too gentle.
This time tomorrow, I'll still be loving you...

This morning,
18 July 2009 6:25 PM

my message kinda sounded like a love confession, didn't it? I only had a minute to send it you know. lol
I'm still getting messages. lol
Hey, am I being attacked here?!
So amusing~. rofl
But you know, I was saying that I loved all of you guys!!!
Because whether you stay by my side or not, you're still reflected in my eyes. (^_-)-*
PV editing has been difficult~~~~~~~~~

I changed my phone for the summer o/~

18 July 2009 10:42 PM

I'm still getting messages. lol
Our eyes can play tricks on us, and you might not see the feelings that are really being shown, which is unfortunate, so please seriously read everything carefully! I'm desperate. lol
But yeah, really, there's been alot of messages.
We're not really sure but it seems that a bunch of you are playing along together.
I say there are many tens of thousands of people simultaneously playing. lol
That's the internet for ya.
But if you can do that, then it'd be necessary for everyone gathering at Tokyo Dome to play together! XD
TA, you guys are my bestest friends in all of asia! (*^_^*)

So here's this. Chon-san, taken with her phone just now.

This may be more difficult than I thought.

Whatever, it's probably cuz I was wearing such sparkly sunglasses.
You know, I really shouldn't wear such novel fashions.
Looks like the flash was completely useless, huh?

Here's this, just so you can see the sunglasses I'm wearing↓

Living just for myself
How boring.

...while writing this, I got even more messages. LOL

2009/07/20 3:13 AM

while we were going down Route 246, I couldn't help but think how this street always changes.
"What's up (・o・)? What's up (・o・)???" I looked around, and on both sides, the people on the sidewalk all stopped & looked up in the same direction, I noticed.
My goodness, was it a bizarre scene!
I was totally thinking that like, a UFO had showed up. LOL
But no, it was just a rainbow. A big huge rainbow right in the middle of the city o/~
I tried to hurry to take a photo of it with my phone, but I didn't make it in time. lol
But seriously, it's like there's nothing separating the street & the sky.

The sky is beautiful, it got this girl oddly excited↓

Nah, before this spontaneous shot, this girl was pretty useless actually.
I love being somewhere where I'm surrounded by mother nature, but I guess seeing nature being able to break through this city's gray buildings was really moving.☆

Well, changing the subject, today's last task was rehearsal.
After the end of it, I took pictures secretly in the studio.

From left: Waaay in the back is Suba-sama, wearing a bright yellow knit hat is the ever-cute Maro-chan, the knapsacked back belongs to Zin-san, the left hand belongs to Rocky who's watching a video, the one who seemed to be watching the video but isn't is Niiyan, and then Kaz-Max.
My secret photographing has been discovered!!! ^^;;

Yeah, so from left in this one: Maro chan in his bright yellow knit hat & flip-flops, Zin-san returning the cell phone photo, and then Kaz-Max who's lookin' like Crayon Shin-Chan, making his way in the photo unexpectedly.
And at the end of the day I took a magnificently special photo.

Aki glaring at Midoring, & Midoring being very self-conscious.

Nnaaaaaa~ so simple! \(__)

So so, everyone coming to see me at NHK, I'll see you there! o/~
Please be sure to come! o/~ o/~ o/~

21 July 2009 2:10 AM

The title doesn't really mean anything. lol

Well now, today, I woke up really quickly unexpectedly, with "Need to Drink Momi Tea Syndrome", bothering everyone since the early hours with "MOMI TEA! MOMI TEA!"


(Well, to be more accurate, the one who actually went to go GET it was Gyou-chan.)

After this, I had a cigarette in celebration, but because of that, inside this Momi-girl's throat, it was like BAM and it became hard to breathe. So I stopped smoking the cigarette.
I was sure to put the cigarettes somewhere far away from me.
I'm starting to rethink that decision.
One outfit for today's TV live~o/~

Recording went off without a hitch.
Neeexxxtt up~~~~!
Second out fit is greeeee~~~~~eeen.

I changed the flowers to pink ones, too☆
To everyone who came to watch, you were totally super-genki!
It was so much fun, thank you!(*^_^*)

Yup, the second taping went well too~(^_^)v
Now I have to head off to my next task~~~~~~~~~.
I'm sleepy...
I'M SO SLEEPY----------(=_=)

But I hafta keep holding on!

The day still has awhile to go before it's over~.

*"Midori" means Green, and ayu calls her dancer Midori Saito "Midoring." Hahaha. :)

"Momi Tea" is...
22 July 2009 2:42 AM

a drink from Hawaii. "Momi" means "pearl" in Hawaiian.☆
I think it's usually called "Black Pearl Tea" in English*, in mainland America, but that way of saying it makes it harder to order than saying "Momi Tea". ♪
In Japan, you can usually get it at Hawaiian food places~.
If any of you are interested, you really should try it out. (^_-)-☆
The tapioca is very different, it's deeper in the cup.
So anyway, I'm being careful not to smoke too much!! lol
Don't read too much into that - today most of the questions that rushed in were people asking me to explain Momi Tea~♪
I'm wary of the PV's due date, so since it's giving me a nosebleed I'm ninja-vanishing out of here today...
I have time to show you guys a photo but I don't have any today, so I'm gonna upload one of my Mop-chan.

This is such a perfect smile, lol.
That was princess Cocoa~ (^^) smooch!

*Or bubble tea, or boba tea... I've personally only heard those two, never "black pearl tea", but it's all the same thing.

It's official...
22 July 2009 11:37 AM

It's gotten too cloudy!!!
Awww.... the eclipse (T_T)

I SAW IT!!!!!!!
22 July 2009 12:03

But I had to nearly break my neck to see it, lol.
I just keeeppppptt looking up at the sky, waiting for a gap in the clouds.
AND I GOT TO SEE IT! (。) So exciting!!

23 July 2009 2:39 AM

That's what I've been up to. (^_^;)

First up, band rehearsal.
Peco-san's blog covers it too, but basically I thought we were seriously rocking, but then suddenly we all turned into an army of silly people.
How very grown-up!
I took cell phone photo then, and the whole crew stuck together & did peace signs.
Here they are, these "grown-ups."

Teeheehee. (^_^)v
So then, next up, I went to the studio for Dance rehearsal~. It was far away, which sucked. lol
Right away they were taking video and I looked it over, holy crap, they were all so serious!!!!!
During actual rehearsal, the number of people dancing seemed to increase over the span of one song, it looked like their level went up as I watched. (too late)
The two on my side are interesting.
They're arguing about something.

Then it changed.

What. The heck.
The owner of this fine Maro-Shuu photo is Zin-san.

Oh, and in 26 years, I want us to watch the next solar eclipse together!~(*^_^*)
Let's do it.

And for a-nation, it'll be Erorin on drums. o/~

Shared by Ayu's Story

Översättning. ViVi September 2009.

“Because we’re in this kind of era, I want to send out sparkling, cheerful and powerful things. I believe that’s my duty.”

Dressed in an flashy eighties dress, Ayu smiles, “I feel happy when I’m dressed like this”. She confidently says that her music, fashion etc. express her real essence. “If I wear basic clothes, it’ll certainly calm my mood, but if I’m not allowed to do different things, it’s just uninteresting, right? If you’re only defensive, you won’t be able to create new things.”

From the 20th century to the 21st century, in those ten years, Ayu has been leading the girls of those centuries. Whilst always showing precise answers to the doubts and problems of girls from this era, now, in her 11th year, Ayu is focusing on the tastes of certain people.

“I love the fashion of the eighties. Back then, that kind of strongly and boldly coloured patterns were widespread. Because there were no personal computers in that age, it took much time and trouble for people to make things. Now, you can easily make anything, right? For example, if it’s difficult to express one emotion with words, we convey it using pictographs, just like that right?--- But with things created in the eighties, you can feel the energy and enthusiasm of the people who made them. I think that’s a great thing.”

“When I first thought about the concept for this year’s NEXT LEVEL tour, I wanted to convey the power which people hold. That idea suddenly popped into my head.”

“When I think about organisation, up 'till now, rather than a live performance, I wanted to create an entertaining stage. But, this year, while leaving the show-like part behind, the power of the band’s performance, the liveliness of the dancers, the team, my lyrics; all those things---, I wanted to let hear and show the things which can’t be turned into machines, things which only humans can do. That feeling was very strong.”

As for this year’s 10th anniversary tour, concerning both Ayu and fans; a “thank you for these ten years” feeling of gratitude was exchanged. A feeling like some kind of ceremony beyond time. That was this year’s tour. “The people who came, laughing and crying, made me very happy; it’s a very strong feeling,” Ayu said.

A live performance with nothing but fun, happens often, but a live performance that shakes the heart, happens rarely. During the NEXT LEVEL tour, the words which Ayu created one by one, putting her entire heart into them, carried the rhythms and melodies. Especially ballads like Days became songs from the soul, as if penetrating the cells of the audience one by one. A very pure feeling.

“Lately, things like lyrics make me happy. I’m often told that it looks as if I’m pursuing a goal. I’m not conscious of it to that extent, but I can recall one thing: when I sang my lyrics in January this year, ----how should I say..?---- I can’t find a proper way to say this, but there’s a “I can do this” kind of feeling. Until now, since I’m weak in vocal range and chords, everything would disappear unnoticed----. Somehow, I feel it turned into ???. So, if it’s like that, desires will also steadily come out.”

On the 12th of August, the double A single [Sunrise ~LOVE is ALL~/Sunset ~LOVE is ALL~] will be released. It’s Ayu’s new experiment, consisting of one melody but two different lyrics and arrangements.

“Sunrise is a summery, happy pop-tune, but whilst writing the lyrics I thought, “it would be nice if I turned it into a ballad, right?”. In that way, the ballad Sunset, glowing with the melancholy of the end of summer, was born.”

“The subject of Sunrise is “you”, and that of Sunset is “me”. As for Sunset; I wondered if girls can sympathize with it more easily. But because I feel both songs have become each other’s ‘answer song’, I feel people can sympathize with both songs.”

“Because I also wrote the songs with the theme ‘father & daughter love’ in mind, it’s not only about romantic love, but about family love and friendship as well. I wrote the songs to fit different kinds of love.
Though I didn’t create them this way from the start, I can’t imagine them as separate anymore; both songs respond to each other.”

Ayu said, “I want to take good care of my present self”. Music, fashion, love; everything concerning Ayu is the present.
Everything continues to move forward and continues to change ---.

I am not saying that we think is the only asset is a good thing, but I think it'sa great thing to love oneself greatly.
Me to that side, it is not really yet.
It's a bit my fault ...
Well, I change the subject, but I have not finished my work.
Pyon! pfffffff ......
Here I think, today, to a large intersection, there was a young man on a motorcycle, he takes off his helmet to yawn to drop the jaw and pushed his bike against a wall, it is supported above and made a pose, while dripping with sweat.

I do not know how to say, he seemed so free, without any consideration for the eyes of others. I remained in awe of him.
I know this is unspectale nothing extraordinary, but to me it seemed like an illumination.
I even felt something painful in my chest ...
I said, it must be that what is lost and quel'on know that we never found twice.
Of course, there are many things that I have lived, precisely because I chose my own path.
And for me the most important is my meeting with you.
that I can truly proclaim loudly (*^_^*)
Good going, I feel my back in the black eyes of my manager (lol), I think I will stop and return to work! ☆
It was nice today to be with you and joke. It's super vaiment, the "TA" ... ♪ ♪ ♪
When everything was shining, there was nothing that was afraid,
This time I was only continuing a wonderful dream ...
As if the wind was blowing gently too soft,
tears that I can remember running along my cheek.
By becoming an adult, there are things that I lost.
But today, there is a unique being who I am ...
As if the wind blows gently was too soft.
Tomorrow at the same time, I love you still ....

I do something or I do nothing, in any case is subject to controversy, and is it unfortunate? I am accustomed. And every time you agitated on forecasts or mere rumors, I say aah, when I reached well below the point where I could never go back, because every time I took my responsibilities and I have always argued right before me. 
With reason, thinking that I am alone and have to know my own truth. 
It's the same thing for the future. 
Whatever happens, with regard to my own life and my own choices, I want to say, full of confidence in me. 
For 13, it appears that the risk of rain getting smaller, and I also know what are the expectations of all members of the "TA" (*^_^*) 
I was well broadcast the fact that you sent me many "teruterubôzu" (a kind of small lucky to keep the bad weather) (T_T) 
So we too, we decided to put all that and we also manufacture. 
I believe in destiny. 
Not escape the inevitable, but we can influence its fate. 
The energy of "TA3 reach to the heavens. Sure! 
I may be selfish, but I decided that I, I live forever contemplating EVEN IN THE LANDSCAPE AND LOOKING AT THE SAME SPEED.

06-07-2009 22h10

The shooting today has been canceled ... 
When I arrived, the rain fell hard, but it gradually became more refined, and by the time we even saw that the clouds differed somewhat ... 
But basically, looks like the sky ...

Flooded with clouds. 
A rain to stop and re-rain. Ever ... 
Much has been discussed between us, we decided to wait. But with the problem of nightfall, and then all of the decor which was also soaked and we could not do anything, it is with many tears we decided to cancel ... 
All staff who had the hardware store ... 
All were gloomy ...

And at the same time, Kaz and staff Ayu went forward the announcement of the cancellation to all the 300 people of the "TA" to patients in another location a little far ... 
You were all pretty disappointed (v_v) 
I was told that a big silence hit you ... 
Me first, but the dancers, the entire staff, the whole crew, everybody was so excited with the desire to prepare everything before you arrive all! ! It was all left without a word to say (v_v). 
But hey, that's really anyone's fault, we can not do anything about it ... 
We will try again next week. This is our last chance. Of course, it may be impossible for all these 300 people to return them all, with no missing person. 
You all have a job or school. 
We can not leave like this so often ... 
And since we had not chosen the people of Kanto, but from across Japan in a random way, there are probably some among you who live far away and came to express ... 
That is what I hope most ... 
I pray we can still all meet again next week. 
Under a bright sun ... 
Once you know the details (date of report, or if it reopens applications), it will be published on the site. 
Excuse us. 
And to all those who came today, thank you from my heart. 
To all those TA who came for the shooting and expressed concern for us, really thank you.

Urgent! ! ! 
06-07-2009 23h47

The date of report of the shooting has fallen! 


So, all those present today, if you redo your application you will be listed first. 
Sorry to bother you with that, but those who think they can come back, send us your request again <(_ _)> 
So, as we reopen the claims, all those who say, if it is next Monday, so here I can! ! please send your application! <(_ _)> 
Very quickly, the application forms will be mailed by Mr Kaz! ! ! ! ! ! ! 
That is all I could tell you my level!

Ayu last met with 舘ひろし 11 years ago, before her debut, for a meal. 舘ひろし said 'Back then, we were having a gathering with 4 or 5 people, and i told ayu that she have a pair of gorgeous eyes, she will be a superstar one day, and i'm right with my judgement afterall!'
Ayu said, 'even my mum likes 舘ひろし, i had read his books when i was young'

Today was the announcement of our selection of which applicants get to
participate in the video shoot.
The number of applications was crazy!!!
It was seriously more than 10,000 people!!!!!
Thank you so much everyone (>_<)
Only 300 people could be chosen, so there are probably alot of people
who are going to be disappointed, but...
I was hoping that everyone could take part, but then we got this many
applications. Hopefully everyone in TA who got rejected can handle it
with a level-head and feel better knowing that everyone in the PV will
deliver a great performance!!
I'm looking forward to its completion!
And all of you TA members who were chosen, please wear colorful
clothes on the shooting day.☆
Oh, and this is from the office people. They'll have told you by the
time we shoot, but as for bathing suits, that's NG for both men and
women, thanks for your cooperation. m(__)m and above all...

Starting tomorrow, the PV DANCE REHEARSALS
are starting again, so I really need to hurry up and get some rest!
Just thinking about sleeping isn't gonna make it happen.

I uh...
I made a verrry verrryy big decision today.
I honestly don't know if it's the right decision or not.
But I've definitely chosen this.
I stressed and I stressed.... and I decided.
It's best to resolve to do something, and then get acceptance for it later.
So it's okay.
Definitely okay.

*These are lyrics from Ayu's 1998 single "For My Dear...":

"Things are better in the time before
we reach the happiness we've dreamed of,
Because once we finally reach it,
We're so afraid of letting it go...
Even so, humans aren't simple enough
to detach cleanly from that idea..."

No, wrong! Wrong!!

messages from everyone regarding
my posting this morning.
Mostly these three reactions↓

If I had this sort of happy news,
I'd have told everyone ages ago!

I am a girl so of course the desire for marriage is there.... there's
just the matter of a partner.

This would be a big decision too, wouldn't it~?
But that's not it!!!!! If I stopped singing, I wouldn't have anything.

Chonchan had Oolong tea because she felt tired. lol

Chonsan did a good job of holding the meat in her stomach like a
school of fish. lol
Maybe now it's still in a group. lol

So today, after this, I'm gonna go meet up with friends in Osaka.
It'll probably be late at night before I go back home to Tokyo~.
If at all possible, I'll go back to my not-at-all-gloomy house.

note from Deli:*REACTION-Oh is an improv game done on some japanese TV shows where contestants are given a certain scenario to act out, for example, "Your reaction when the water in the shower turns suddenly freezing
