Ai Otsuka 


Ai calendar

I just saw that Ai Otsuka will have a calendar for 2010. I think this is the first time she has released a wall calendar. It will be available on October 3rd. Normally I’d like to see preview pictures before ordering, but the cover looks promising and it’s Ai!

She’s also releasing another best of album in November called Love is Best. It will include her love songs and one new song. Some of the songs will be re-recorded versions. The album will be released in CD only and CD+DVD (music videos) versions.

Update: I posted previews of the actual calendar here.

 

I have some bad memories associated with this song, since I watched the PV for it at one of the worst days of my life (Homer: “Worst day of your life so far”). But it’s a great song, and this arrangement is a bit different:

While we’re pretending it’s winter for a while, let’s watch Ai Otsuka’s Pocket.

I remember ripping this PV when it first came out. I don’t know why I didn’t post it back then.

Here Ai is performing Natsuzora (夏空) while playing the piano at the Love is Born 4th Anniversary 2007 concert. It’s so sexy when Ai plays the piano. Perhaps sexy isn’t the right word. More like alluring. Either way it’s a pleasure to watch.

When this song came on I got this “emotional chill”. I haven’t listened to Sensu in such a long time. I remember getting a similar feeling the first time I heard it on Love Jam.

I need to be in a certain mood to be able to watch concert DVDs. Since this mood hadn’t appeared for quite some time, I had two unwatched and unopened Ai Otsuka DVDs in my shelf. Luckily the mood was right one night and I put LOVE IS BORN 4th Anniversary 2007 into my DVD player and enjoyed it with some wine in the midsummer night.

Since it had been so long since I had last watched one of her concerts, I had almost forgotten how awesome and beautiful she is.

Here’s Strawberry Jam from that concert:

The PV for Ai Otsuka’s song “360°” is so weird and yet so visually appealing :)

Happy Fr-Ai-day! :)

 

I’m back! And my first order of business is to reinstate Fr-Ai-days. I probably won’t post a new Ai video every Friday, but at least every second Friday.

It’s summer, and is there a summerier song than Smily?

Buy the DVD

Momo no hanabira was the first Ai Otsuka song I ever heard. An online friend sent it to me shortly after it was released. I remember listening to it on my 128 MB MP3 player :lol:
