No, "furage" is an contraction of "flying get" (フライングゲット = furaingu getto). In Japan, CD stores offer CDs for sale one day before they're officially released. That's what "flying get" refers to.

No problem. There is no difference in price to get early; it is just a standard practice in Japan.

@MamiNoodles I bought a reg version and one with the DVD...The DVD is their 2016 tour road movie of their tour through Europe. Just finished watching it. Reminds me of the Hello World documentary...some great footage...I always find these documentaries interesting even though I don't understand a word lol....but it is fun to watch reactions....touring on a big double decker bus with bunks on the upper level...it was cool to see Happy

Many fans collect SCANDAL CDs, so a lot of us buy all of the editions or more than one edition when they're offered. Japanese artists offer more editions in order to sell more copies anyway; that's one of the reasons CD sales are still doing pretty well in Japan.

Think of it this way: by getting another edition you'd also be supporting SCANDAL even more, so definitely don't feel stupid in picking up another copy. Wink

Are there no concert clips on the DVD? I may pass on that if that's the case. Sad

If they have a vinyl version, I would have ordered a copy in advance.

English subs added to the "FREEDOM FIGHTERS" studio live video (also convenient for those who live in countries that can't watch it on YouTube):

This isn't in 1080p, but I've also added subs to a rip of "HELLO" from the web broadcast:

Yes, inside of the case of each RE is one sticker included at random. There are 5 stickers in total (one for each member + band sticker). Some also come autographed.

Tomomi looks very attractive in the Special Live videos Onion Love Love but Mami is still the most attractive for me hehe

-

Thanks for the videos! I used to like FREEDOM FIGHTERS more but after a few listens, my attention shifted to HELLO. It seems like the sound of HELLO fits them more than FREEDOM FIGHTERS does. I like songs with styles similar to that of FF, but this time, the slower, calmer song wins.

About the album, for me it seems that a lot of songs on it were remixed - and it isn't a bad thing at all. Listening to songs I haven't been listening for a while (some with a proper audio quality) - like "Aitai", "Bitter Chocolate", "Pin Heel Surfer", "Hello! Hello!", "one piece" - really made me a bit nostalgic. I'm a fan since their major debut, so a lot of memories came to my mind while listening to a compilation full of well-known and personally important (for me) songs. Each era of them correlates with each era of myself through all these 9 years. I'm growing up with them. I'm growing up and the background music is SCANDAL. That's incredible. So, I'm enjoying everything about this release - and, guess what, it also came just when I was needing it! This super best-of album is healing me from some emotional wounds I've been making to myself recently, so it really is as important to me as to the girls, as they come better and better at sing-songwriting their own songs, and the two new songs can show it, two sides of the same powerful girl band.

"FREEDOM FIGHTERS" is "fast & furious" side, aggressive as hell, with such a strong message; I see the instrumental as an improvement of their "garage rock" sound of their so-commented early days, with a glam-punk accent. I love it and I'm actually addicted. "HELLO" is "sweet & romantic" side, the instrumental is pretty complex, a very well arranged song, perfectly combined with HARUNA's gentle tones. It makes me thinking of snow falling, just like "SUKI-SUKI" - maybe a counterpart song? By now I'm not into "HELLO" that much, but I can say it's growing on me. By the way, this is the first time that "Flashback No.5" appears on an album release. I'm glad that it's included. I forgot how danceable this song is. Thank you, fans!

PS.: The comment from Yuu Takahashi was the most touching. I almost cried while reading! Many thanks for the translations.

@MamiNoodles...they do cover some songs in some of the clubs on the tour, not necessarily the whole song...but they do get inside the clubs and show them performing.

@Reachie...hopefully the storm has passed and the mail finally made it to you ! I did hear that the East was getting pounded hard by that storm !

Well, I just had a quick listen to the album, mainly the ones I expected to have been improved.
I didn't notice too many differences, but for me Awanai.,.dene sounds even crisper?? I really seem to notice a positive improvement to that one. Some of the others lose some of their raw/muddy qualities which may or may not be a good thing depending on how much you liked the originals.
