Japan Ayumi Hamasaki Clip Box 1998-2011

On January 1st, Japanese pop singer Ayumi Hamasaki will be releasing a Blu-ray box set containing all of her music videos from 1998-2011. That's 100 music videos total on 4 BDs.

There will be a LE with a special box and a bag as well as a standard edition:

BD (Limited Edition), 4 Discs: AVXD-91642~5
C/W: A special grand BOX + A specially-made bag
Price: 24,150

BD, 4 Discs: AVXD-91646~9
C/W: Sleeve-casing
Price: 22,050

Hamasaki ties Michael Jackson on the list of the most expensive music videos ever made.

Are there any Ayu fans here considering this?

I love Ayu, but that is way too expensive for my liking...

I start to think money is falling from the sky in Japan. 284.96 USD for 4BD Disc? WOW!

I'm very tempted to buy this. The fact that it's a limited edition might push me towards a purchase.

In Japan, the price is usually based on the amount and quality of the content rather than the number of discs it's on.

If you want the LE, you might not want to wait - it's already sold out at Amazon and CDJapan.

Sold out at YesAsia as well. The limited edition set is living up to its status.

This has been released, but the first reviews say it is an upconvert/upscale and looks no different from DVD.

Of course its an upconvert release. Even as an Ayu fan, I was so sure that Avex won't put any effects to remaster ALL music videos. Unlike those excellent concert BDs this release is clearly a rip-off.

Well, I received my set and I can confirm that most of the videos are upscaled. The only clips that appear to be true HD are some of the new ones on disc 4.

Even so, it's not that bad. The clips do look better since they're not as compressed, the widescreen videos now fill the screen, and it's pretty cool to have 30-35 videos on one disc. Many of her videos have great production values. Audio is PCM 2.0.
