UPDATE: sub-ayu has been changed to Sabu-ayu. During Day 2 at Yokohama Arena, ayu impersonated Japanese enka singer Kitajima Saburo, affectionately known as Sabu-chan, and that is who these tweets were referring to. Who is Kitajima Saburo?


snoookooopy: The 2 days at Yokohama have confirmed this. Hamasaki Ayumi will surely save Japan with her music and songs. Though she looks like a fairy, she is really a goddess.
ayu_19980408: I’m a kewpie doll from Heaven ( ̄▽ ̄)

mkteamayu: I cried since the start of today’s show. To be able to create such a tour that stays in the heart, with so much awesomeness in so short a time, ayu is really the best. We will surely reach forever. Thank you!
ayu_19980408: The real awesome people are the troupe members, who helped to make my ideas into reality ☆
halucrea: To even come up with such ideas, I’d love to take a peek inside your brain ☆

ayacky1002: What did ayu-chan have for dinner today?

mmanaho: Everyone, I’m really thankful that so many fans seem to be happy. However, please understand that it’s also because ayu-chan herself stares at me with those big eyes while taking in everything that I’m teaching like a genius. (*^o^*) I’m just providing her with a gentle lesson.

ryosukeimai: Whatever happens, it’ll be great if we can meet up somewhere soon~… How many years has it been since we last met? I really can’t remember… ww

koji_morimoto: I went to watch ayu-san’s live. It was awesome! I was mesmerized by her voice for 3 hours. Since last year’s tour was excellently done, I was really looking forward to seeing how she has done this tour. And then, 311 came and plans were changed. With a new title POWER of MUSIC… this tour has surpassed everything she has done in the past. Watching it, I feel that I have been changed too.
