That picture cracks me up, but it's the rainbow font that slays me! smiley: laugh

I think I am leaning towards buying the CD+DVD with the PVs, although it depends on the other CD+DVDs content to be honest.

^ I guess I will end up buying both CD+DVD editions, but I still have to give that a thought...

By the way, I wonder when Sony plans to announce title, covers and tracklist for the upcoming single. It's going to be released in less than 3 weeks, it's about damn time!

I hope the album tracks are strong... Although fancy DVD extras are nice, I'd rather hear a solid album since I can listen to music while multi-tasking --- can't do the same while watching videos.

Hahahah that top pic. Amazing.

I was thinking about getting the CD+DVD PV version but then I thought about the PVs that he's done lately and how boring they are, so maybe I'll go for the live version...

So apprently the theme song for "Jin 2" drama from TBS is sung by Hirai Ken



This better be good. MISIA's theme song for the original JIN last year was one hella epic ballad.....Ken needs at least something Elegy-like to be a close match
