Artikel översatt med Google translation (och ja ta den därefter oxå. :P):
Ayumi Hamasaki's latest album, released the NEXT LEVEL. Debut next year of her head and a thriving artistic celebration of the anniversary? Tips that is hidden in this album!

2009 The first single from "Rule / Sparkle", DRAGONBALL Evolution movie's theme song and all the world, with 20 consecutive Oricon debut album made a record of Ayumi Hamasaki. Led a team that consisted of only male dancer "Rule" and the PV Japanesque and aggressive, "Let me break with you in the first Buddhist rules" type of representation in the world of dance and song of the Samurai , was very impressive. Devoted to the creation of momentum as ayu. 10 had completed a full album of original pieces.

NEXT LEVEL's latest album is not made in a bombshell. To talk about the title, but there is a need to reflect on the 2008 activities.

Last year, the album's first New Year's GUILTY released. And April 5引提GE the film from "ayumi hamasaki ASIA TOUR 2008 ~ 10th ayu.pngnniversary ~"銘打TTA started the tour. Recently, a nine-year high of 10 year anniversary of the artist, ayu is exactly 10 years from now, it took them 10 years to the project. Also around here, "like setup" does not like the picture of ayu. Single was released the same day 10 years "Mirrorcle World", the first female artist with 10 single-consecutive year.

September 10 anniversary single collection of ayu.png COMPLETE ~ ALL SINGLES ~, and released, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Taiwan, 10 ahead of the Asia concert tour anniversary. December 44 of the first single "Days / GREEN" out, live any longer in the countdown is really filled with the contents of the special gratitude to the fans that it was not finished the 10 year anniversary.

And from the beginning of the year is completely "following" mode. Rather than cling to past glory, and then abandon it to go. Ayumi Hamasaki has no meaning unless the nerve of them. To the NEXT LEVEL, care should also be prepared?

The above-mentioned "Rule" of "solid start breaking the rules" and, "Sparkle", "try not to spell aggressive in defending" as represented by the lyrics of the album is dark message many songs. Not hesitate to use the expression from a strong showing early in his prepared ayu, however, from the original, per GUILTY, not just my opinion just as shown, words are increasingly trying to encourage listeners to replenish to find.

I like to look back over the 10 year anniversary tour, at the opening, "talkin '2 myself" of "creative destruction is due to the fact that you are born you know," the part that I was to hear a dramatic a cappella, The ending is, "You are the future like what I wanted?" and a warning to modern society "Mirrorcle World" was配SHI. Awareness and the fight for survival in the era of high-risk, and we have one stage and挺促SOU. Well no, this is not it? NEXT LEVEL is urgent, that it's been passed down as well. "Is that right fight, hope and disappointment over the border in speed over a period towards the end" was written and "rollin '" is a prime example.

Still, the title song "I'm KOWAKUNAI" like that, it also is drawing a bright future. Of course, some love songs. And last, when I wrote obediently listen to the voice of the audience in the wing of the stage for encores of "Curtain call" a moving song. This has brought a treasure of the anniversary tour. I would say the fans with songs created to Ayumi Hamasaki. Only the natural expression of how a simple chorus and piano, ayu and almost reached the level of proof is on a stage.

April 8 to 12 years after the storm. Immediately after that, start a new tour and album引提GETA. for ayu, stage right "for the next stage" of the field will find something. Even further towards the stratosphere ayu. While watching your back, we向KAITAI to the next level.

First, I think it's great that SOU's blog keeps a high quality.

Who is SOU-san? How to find his blog? I receive many questions like this, but well, I don't think it's my place to give the link. I'll give you some explanation.

Mr. SOU is a "Sports Trainer" or sports coach. He is also the owner of a Fitness center called "Tune: up" in the district of Ebisu (Tokyo).
(Yesterday, Chon-san was there!)

And for those who are surprised that for a sports coach, he has a name that sounds like a dancer, I would say just that, simply because the kanji used to write his name are so complicated that it is often mistaken about how to read.

Well, knowing all this, I think it should give you enough to find him on the net...

Well. I changed the subject, but as usual, all my days are very busy!
I'm busy in assembling images of CDL, but it's so long that I think I'll faint!

Tomorrow, because magazine shooting for the promotion of the album are piled up , I'm going all day to take photos or answer interviews for aaaaall these magazines!
That's why I think I will can't be at Budokan (>_<) ...

Well. I once again change the subject, but tomorrow or after tomorrow (even that remains unclear ...!), we will formalize new dates for the Tour!

I'm so grateful ...

Because so many of you tried to get tickets for this Tour, currently we haven't enough ticket to propose, and the staff looking everywhere for concert halls that are available.

But when I see the momentum that you show me ...

I feel that additional dates may also be quickly "sold out" ...

And it really likely to last until the announcement of new "new" dates!

In this context of crisis, they say there is one like that in a century so I really measure my luck.

But conversely, it's also because we live such a time, we want dream and hope.

To see something that shines and dazzles.

And I want to show that it will not be an illusion, but something that really exists.

That's really what I think.

Perhaps the Tour of all attendance records for Ayumi Hamasaki.

Rehearsals happens (for now ...) without any problem! (_-)- ☆

You can expect a show that will be huge ....!!

This is Stan-chan and Luiz ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Luiz, he did Pride and Beautiful Fighters. He's quite accustomed to our way of working, but with Stan-chan, we had funny days. He was constantly between concentration and excitement! lol
He is unable to speak Japanese! lol
In the second photo is the helicopter used for aerial photography.
The pilot was a real ace.
Placing themselves in incredible angles, or making a mad hedge-hopping. It was great!

No. 510: The Ayu team

The lunch break! ♪
it makes a kind of crowd in black lol
Bah, there is indeed one in red.
He is a person with quite a dark face, but he's very relaxed:
"My windbreaker, don't you think it's cute? I love red!" he said, laughing!
The second photo shows Chon-san beginning to take ice-cream when it's time for lunch!
She looks very happy!
The man on the right, the blond, is a tourist passing through. He was also in Hawaii...

No. 511: Very serious ...

slap-bang view of rushes.
Ahhh, Chon-chan, she has short hair right now! like this!

No. 512: What I thought ...

... and here I am back in the recording!
What is this crazy schedule? lol
Well, "Fashion check"!
Bright pink sweater, leather jacket, scarf, all from McQueen.
The gray wool legging is from Rick Owens.
Gray moccasins from LOUBOUTIN
And my favorite glasses of the time, CUTLER AND GROSS

Today's Photo 501-507

No. 501: It was when it ...

Well for starters, that's when I go to the recording studio between two shoots of PV.
I did not even have time to eat, I'm trying to drink Wieder. "This is a" Pub-reality! "They all said to me! Hold on, yesterday, I have the impression that it was shooting an ad Wieder ...

No. 502: You know,

I was under so much pressure, I wrote a lot of annotations. It happens really often, I should not really be in my heart.
The second photo, I'm trying to adjust the Q-Box to adapt his sound to me. I change depending on the pieces or parts that I sing.
This setting, like the height of the microphone, this is something that is at the very beginning and are super importantes.C 'is when you have finished all that we can start recording.

No. 503: Fashion Check

A Rock and a TI with denim straps at CURRENT.
The shoes are from Balenciaga. Yellow lines are fluorescent effect, huh?

No. 504: Fashion Check 2

Crocodile jacket from Mc Queen. It is gray.
The sunglasses also come from McQueen. Green.
Keep writing "green", it makes me think of Midoring ...

No. 505: This bag ...

Too cute!
I think that distinguishes evil, but it is red and silver.
The belt, there is a golden chain, and there is a silver chain rock. It's Dolce & Gabbana.

No. 506: For the Tour ...

All staff Ayu took advantage of the few free moments to go in search of fabrics for the manufacture of costumes of the dancers, group and mine.
We are in the Downtown.
The second photo, in a fabric store. Not easy to choose, these stores are very many in the Downtown.
On the right of the photo, a customer normal ... no, it's Ms. Miura, the patron saint of Kanako.

No. 507: Next ...

I always buy some magazines to read on the plane.
Well it is rather modest, but we made a little "fashion check".
The wool cap is a gift Okei-chan, I do not know where she is! lol
The she gave me also the scarf. I do not know where she is! lol
The black jacket, it's Balenciaga.
The low, gray, is at Rick Owens

I just came back after completing a recording session.

Today too, we churned out something gooooood! (_) V

I'm going to take a bath, I'll sleep a little, and I leave for the shooting of the 2nd PV! ♪

Seeing my energy, Stan-chan repeated daily: "Ayu is an Alien ...." ! LOL


Hey, Zin-san, me too! I know very well how to imitate Kasuga-san! lol

Today, the 28th, is the anniversary of Maro!

I thought I said this to you so that at midnight, altogether, we could post messages on his blog ...

But it isn't too late, then all of you "TA", if you have time, go on the blog of Maro-chaaaan! (_-)- ☆

No. 467 28-02-2009 20h31

It's amazing the number of messages on the blog of Maro chan! (*_*)

You've all congratulated him ! !
Thaaanks ! (*_*)(*_*)(*_*)

Hmmm, I'm very touched (T_T)

Well done "TA"!

Well, to tell you about Chon-chan, she has safely completed the 2nd PV. The recordings are also finished. All that we have to do now is the mix of 2 songs and everything will be done!!

You know, this time in L.A, I really feel we have injected a lot of news.

I'm really entering in the "Next Level".

It's 03h25 local time, and when day comes, I'll back on the plane.

Yes, that's ...

I'm coming back hoooome ! ! ! ! ! ! !

I am Happppyyyy! ! ! ! ! ! !


Meanwhile, for sure the Ayu staff is really great (*_*)v strong, and

JK-san, Nobita-kun, Morimoto-san ...

Thanks a looot to yooou ! !

It was a super commando mode, but it was really necessary to do it like this. We all really make a pretty delicate album! !

(T_T) (T_T) (T_T) (T_T) (T_T)

I'm a bit weepy;

Ah, more than me, Kome must cry. He is so emotional ... this boy! lol

We just finally finished the filming of the first PV ...
Back in my room, I fainted and slept for about 3 hours (lol), and I just wake up.
Soon, I'll go for a recording.
But tomorrow we'll start filming again for another new PV ...

how are you... us? lol
Who? ... one who has designed such a schedule! lol

Aah, by the by, you have written and broadcast your thoughts about Rule / Sparkle, I'm sooo happy! 0 ∈ ∋ ♪
As soon as I have a break, I will read! them 0 ∈ ∋ ∈ ∋ ∈ 0 ∋ ♪ 0

Ah, another thing too! For the ☆500th☆ today's photo, about the body oil, "please tell us moooore!" I received many messages like this. But you know, this is a limited series, and I think it will be difficult to find the same product (>_<)

I got it by chance, and they even told me "This is a limited series. This is the last copy we have." I tried to look for it in other stores, and, with 6 found in NY that were sent to me, that is how I finally managed to get 7. You understand the trick ...!

But, hey, I have offered up 6 of these, so at the end, I have only one for me. You see, I don't keep them jealously lol!

But you know, products that have the same smell, such as perfumes, are sold without problem in Tokyo! (_-)- ☆

OMG! I should go to the studio! ! !
Here, it's precisely 22h10


aaaah ....

Arena Tour's rehearsals began. Without me. lol

To all of the band, dancers, technical staff ... this year, we will do the Beeeest !!!!, huh? (_) V (_) v (_) v ♪

Today's photos 496 till och med 500

No. 496: Something ...

... strange in this picture? The solution:
Yes, we're both wearing flannel t-shirts.
Even the sleeves are measured in the same way!
By the by, the real name of Nobita-kun, is Yuta Nakano.
He composes music that is quite different from his image, eh? lol
talkin' and Mirrorcle are signed Nobita-kun, you know!

No 497 Something ...

... strange in this picture? The solution:
Yes, you're right, you start to get used to it.
The Kome's crest is all flattened!
Me? I gaze it!

No. 498 : Then,

I asked Nobita-kun to write for me on a partition, and I will record the chorus.
Well, I should go to the recording today. It is 22:00 here.

No. 499: Smell

...it's very important.
The photo represents all scented candles that cannot be missing at the hotel.
I choose the desired odor depending on the mood.
Candles in the shape of roses that you see on the right, "mama" gave them to me. They come from PJ.
On the left, the candles that we can find on Hanabi. Yea, it's great VOLUSPA!

No. 500: Here ...

this is my fundamental "smell", which doesn't change for eternity.
Sometimes I may want to commit adultery, but in the end I always come back!
Because I don't like fragrances, mostly I choose things like "body cream". This time the picture is a bottle of "body oil"
The skin becomes true satin! ♪

Today's photos 485 till och med 495

No. 485: To begin,

some views of the atmosphere at Narita during my departure.
How long have they waited?
The hands of the girls that I greeted were very frozen... Aaaah! (T_T) I almost cried.

No. 486 That day...

there was really a lot of people. It was very lively! (*_*)
In yhe second photo, it seems that our "Prince" burst into laughter alone. That worries me ...!
I ask him why later.

No. 487: Okay, well ...

Let's gooo ! ♪
... and two more seconds later, I was stopped by the "security frame" (that's what it's called?) that detected anything it could and rang!
These things... can someone explain to me why when it rings you are in the most visible place for everyone to see? It's embarrassing isn't it? lol

No. 488: The photo from the Eggshell ...

past. I arrived safely in San Francisco.
We changed terminals, and from there, is the private jet.
Sullen weather.

No. 489: I get in.

We arrived.
Quick, quick! lol

No. 490: Coming to welcome me

... Stan-chan was there, and I had a big smile when I saw him! ♪
That day, I had a mini-trench from Fendi, a navy, fuchsia and pink McQueen scarf, and one that I really enjoy these days: skinny jeans from CURRENT.
You can't really see them, but the sandals are with cork soles from miumiu.

No. 491: In the evening,

... we went to dinner together.
On the right, with a super-warm winter clothing while we are in California, where a t-shirt is enough, is Nobita-kun.
On the left of the photo, the now famous JK-san.
The girls of Ayu team, while dining, don't ever let JK-san out of thir sight, and they don't stop to think "sooo cute, sooo cute!" lol
Second photo, Nobita-kun swaps glasses with sunglasses ...
Woow! Who is he ? ? ? ? ? ? LOL!

No. 492: Beer ...

and cellphone. They're vital for Gyo-chan!

No. 493: The next day,

... by the way, was yesterday.
Pfff, I don't know when it starts or when it ends when!
I go to the recording ! ! !

No. 494: In the beginning,

we recorded separately, because if one of us makes a mistake, everyone would have to start again. But suddenly we decided to do everything together.
Because it seems that concentration and rendering is superb.
After registration, we are veryyyy tired!
But it's healthy tiredness.

No. 495: This is unclear...

... I think, but I'm in this cabin with Nobita-kun. You see me on the right?
Second photo.
For those who found something strange... the solution.
In general, a score is rather long in width.
I realized it later, but it's true that we were in a hurry and we haden't even prepared the score. But Nobita-kun has played with only the transcript of the words in front of him! ! !
soooo stroooooong ! ! !
