No, I never heard of it. But I guess it's just a rumor because I can't find any informations about it in the internet.

I'm not a fan to her voice. But her ballads are surely beautiful I'm a fan to her ballads like: Kingyo Hanabi, Renai Shashin, One x Time. But for me, Kingyo Hanabi is her best one.

Ah, it makes sense.

And I see that she, as per usual, will keep the "Love" themed titles for her albums. Smile

Edit:
Oh, that reminds me, have you checked out Aio Punch, Tao?

Yes, but only twice. I'm not a fan of self-cover albums like Aio Punch. And so i appreciate the original Ai Otsuka ones more.

Yep, I agree. Although, I do think it can be interesting listening to the original artist take a new swing at their own work.

That is a very cool list you have there. Smile

As for FLiP, I was almost sure I saw that update on twitter but maybe I was mistaken. I do, however, believe they changed labels.
