[JAPANESE NEWS] 120122 “Will Tohoshinki be Avex’s Savior?” The surfacing of reuniting Tohoshinki Project.
The day the five people together again is coming?
Early in the year Avex was shaken by the news of Ayumi Hamasaki’s divorce announcement and in the end the project of reuniting Tohoshinki was brought to surface.
“Avex crammed Ayumi’s PV since debut and special video footages into a DVD-Box and put it on sale on New Year’s Day. We can see that Avex and Ayumi is battling it out, using the hot excellent card of ‘divorce’” (Music insider)
Also, along with Ayumi, Avex’s ace, EXILE also put out their PV compilation at the same time, but it seems that so far the sales didn’t reach their target.
“Adding to the continuous recession in the music market, time has come that (one) cannot sell based only on music. Avex changed their strategy to adding the special edition PV from previous albums etc as freebies and extensively marketing it. It’s okay since Ayumi is under their management, but EXILE and Amuro Namie aren’t from their company and are under other management, they do not get much profit.” (Music insider)
