Ayumi Hamasaki's exercise DVD looks a mess, but still better than her "Lelio" music video

In the latest move of Ayu's journey to ruin her legacy, comes a workout DVD. A exercise features a bunch of dance routines set to her songs. The only appearance Ayu makes in this whole entire DVD is in the horrendously rendered CGI backdrop. I'm not sure what Ayu was busy doing that she couldn't spend 30 minutes dancing to her own songs for the sake of her fans and some extra money, but apparently she was.


If Ayu fans seriously put money on a counter for this mess, then help is no longer at hand. Given that Team Ayu seem to be tight with their money in regards to buying her albums these days, I can't see this DVD flying off of shelves.

  1. What kinda sucks is that this song is kinda hot... If I heard this in a club, I would swiftly and mercilessly turn up to it. But this is not a song for Ayu, this is a song for Namiserable; sure it'd still be generic as fuck, but at least Namiserable could pull a hot routine to it. Even if she does fuck it up by hardly doing the moves right.

  2. I'm willing to bet that the drop (that I'm expecting is in that song) is going to be epic (I hope!) Now I wanna hear "Ijiwaru na Hello" more, since it's the only song we haven't gotten a preview of at all… I'm willing to bet it's going to be the "Hurly Burly" of this entire single (even though that's starting to sound like "DISPLAY" already…)

  3. I... I don't know if I like it. I'll probably come around to it, but Perfume songs usually hook me with the first or second listen, so this is weirdness to me.

  4. That silver jacket is basically an In The Spotlight rip-off and the editing with multiples of Ayu reminds me of those last few Suzuki Ami janks. Shame since the song isn't terrible? Like, this could be a badass live song like Sparkle.

  5. Y'all are tripping, this song is not hot. It sounds exactly like what it is, a red one Jennifer Lopez reject.

  7. hmm I can totally see what you mean about a NES Chine remix of Ninjari Bang Bang - but to me that isn't a bad thing (like how communication or mirai no museum) so I like it a lot! I can't wait to hear it in HQ and blast it in the car :D

  8. "so I don't get why he's shoehorned Pussy P's sound onto Perfume's when he never seems to do the reverse."
    But that's honestly what most of Moshi Moshi Harajuku was, and there are several other Kyary tracks that do the same thing - there's Suki Sugite Kiresou, drinker, unite unite, and I'm sure a lot of Perfume's Bee-Hive stuff has been inspiring her b-sides lately.
    I mean, we both know Kyary won't be going full-blown Edge-sounding electro house any time soon, but that kind of Perfume song is the exception rather than the rule.
    I also have no idea where this superfluous comma in the title is coming from, but that's not really the point, lol.

  9. Well that was terrible. No clinging here. Letting go though.

    I actually like the song, it fits the whole Asian-theme. It sounds like one big Japanese "ondo" (festival march, go Wikipedia it) but ultra-futuristic.
