And with this, Lena-chan you've managed to make us go off-topic. Lol.

Anyway on topic: how many of you bought the Homme version with the "perfume"?

I did. And if they didn't put in the DO Himitsu performance I would have felt cheated.

Since I'm a newer fan I got the femme one. What did the limited edition have that was so special? Since you said it had a performance it must have had a dvd, so what else was on it besides himitsu?

1. Yes just because I dont like it. So I can claim that.
2. I'm afraid not, cos the guitar solo is eerie.

The Homme version has a dvd with only Himitsu on it, and a scratch and sniff sample of the JCHI perfume, which smells totally different from those in the bottles you get at JCHI. There is also a ballot slip for JCHI concert tickets, which is useful only to people living in Japan.

If you do win tickets from the ballot, the tickets that you get are specially designed so they look really nice. It has a crane illustration done in the traditional Japanese style. Unfortunately, my tickets were not like that. However, winning the ballot doesn't mean you get better seats than if you buy it from the ticket vendors, especially since there's such a high incidence of scalping in Japan (probably organised by the yakuza) that JCHI tickets were immediately sold out when they were first released to the public, and that a lot of people had to get tickets off Yahoo Auctions, and end up paying about twice the original price.

Haha. I don't think you can find many similarities if you spare time from drowning in Ringomania. Even if you draw charts comparing chord progressions or key changes XD

Sounan 9.5
Blackout 9.5

Both of them work for me, emotionally & musically. Both are highlights of the albums.

I rated out of five, and this is what I ended up with:

Himitsu 5
Kenka joutou 5
Keshou Naoshi 4
Superstar 4
Shuraba 4
Yukiguni 4
Kabuki 5
Blackout 5
Tasogare Naki 4
Touimei Ningen 5
Tegami 4

I think that would average out higher than yours. But I don't necessarily think that is something to brag about

I can't believe you rated gunjou biyori so low!
