Boa comes in at spot 8 on the oricon charts. Must be less then 5k the first day.

#3 sold 12,088 so that seems like a good estimate ^^

As for my thoughts on the new songs.

Where am I now: An OK track. The change in pitch halfway through kind of threw me off a bit. I thought it was fine the way it sounded. I probably won’t go back to listen to it often.
ありがとうサヨナラ: This one is nice ^^ Like someone else pointed out it also reminds me of Airport de Machiawase ^^
Crow: This one is a mixed bag for me ^^ I actually really like the verses but the chorus isn’t that great ^^ I say that but it has one of those choruses that’s going to start randomly playing in my head over and over lol
Manhattan Tango: This is a jam! Love everything about it especially the intro and the chorus! Would love BoA to perform this ^^
Mannish Chocolat: Also a bop! Again love everything about it but it just falls slightly short of Manhattan Tango for me ^^

Tl;dr Manhattan Tango > Mannish Chocolat > ありがとうサヨナラ > Crow > Where am I now

The new version of FLY sounds great although is it just me or does the music overpower the vocals sometimes? Anyway I liked the original version of FLY but having this version is cool too ^^

Overall this is a pretty solid and cohesive album that STILL isn’t out in my country btw! lol

Ahh sad to see first day was only #8, guess the trajectory won't be that good at this time. Hope BoA's not too sad about it :(

I feel the same way... It seems like there's something wrong with the mixing on FLY. Overall, I like the original version much better.

Its too bad, because from the preview, I really had a high hope for the album version of FLY.

But it’s enlightening thatt they would remake the instrumental, i thought it was gonna be like the album version of the end soshite and... (which basically only adding sound of rain)

I think it's a good spot taking everything in consideration, she's not huge in Japan anymore, so I'm happy she's inside the top 10 at least

Yeah, has the album actually been properly released or released at all in any of your countries? I keep checking back but it’s not on either the UK iTunes Store, Apple Music or Spotify.

Update on that! BoA has a JPN specific Facebook and Instagram now and they made a post today that said “TBA for fans in overseas!” Hopefully we won’t have to wait long :D

I like this album more and more. She's havibg so many different music styles. Compared to previous albums I have the feeling she's taking a bigger risk with this album and for me it works. From ballads to tango, to dance etc. Really great variety. Hope it's doing well on the charge. She deserved it

I just hope Avex don’t hold back on promo for future releases because this album isn’t doing spectacularly. They should understand that they won’t get amazing results straight away. They need to keep at it.
