In January 2006, ayaka recorded "I Believe" as the ending theme for the Japanese Drama, Rondo. At the time of its premiere, Rondo was one of Japan's highest rated dramas and is credited with exposing "I Believe" to wide audiences. The full single was first released as a downloadable only single and would go on to become the fastest downloadable song to reach 1,000,000 sales as well as becoming the 2nd highest selling downloadable debut single for a female artist.

 "I Believe" was officially released on February 2nd, 2006 and debuted as the 3rd highest single of the week. The single would go on to stay in the top ten for six more weeks as well as selling a total of 220,000 copies in its entire chart run. An English cover of the song was used by Miki Ando in the 2006 Winter Olympics and the 2006 edition of Skate America which Ando would go on to win.

Her next single is Winding Road on February 28th. It is a collaboration with Kobukuro. The song is tied-up to the Nissan Cube CM :)

Ah, I like ayaka, ever since I watced Rondo, that I Believe song kicked ass, and when I watched Sapuri I loved her song for that as well, I'm glad she ended up very successful with Mikazuki and her debut album.

Ayaka is one of my favorite artist. I love her song "三日月".
Some of my personal favorite from her album "First Message" would be "Start to 0 (Love)", "BLUE DAYS", and all her singles!!!

HOLY SHIT!!! GUESS WHO GOT MARRIED!?!?!

Hiro Mizushima, Ayaka married since February
Fri, April 3, 2009 (2:00pm EDT)
Popular actor Hiro Mizushima (24) and singer-songwriter Ayaka (21) surprised the entertainment industry on Friday when they held a press conference announcing that they recently married. In addition, it was revealed that Ayaka will be putting her music career on hold.

The two apparently first met three years ago, but it wasn't until a magazine interview last spring that their relationship began to develop. The pair started seriously dating in August. They decided to register their marriage on February 22.

Mizushima explained, "She is indispensable to me. I thought, if I let go of her, I'll regret it my entire life." Ayaka commented, "My first impression of him was that he had really powerful eyes, and he could completely see through me. Right now, he is someone I respect from the bottom of my heart."

It was also learned that immediately after Ayaka's debut in 2006, she became ill with Graves' disease, an autoimmune disorder. Ayaka tearfully reported that her symptoms have been increasing. As a result, Ayaka will continue with her music until the end of this year, after which she will put her career on hold. Mizushima promised to protect and support her.

Considering her condition and the fact that he STILL has stuck by her, that's what I call doing it for the right reasons. :yep:



JPH!P :heart:'s Fushigidane, ChrNo, Jab & marimari. Always.

Pretty surprising to hear. They make a pretty good couple, I guess.

I'm more shocked at to hear about her illness. Hope she gets better and gets the proper treatments.

Well if he left her because of her condition, then he's just an asshole. :lol:
But if he married her because he pities her for her condition, wouldn't say that's the right reason either.

But, congrats to them both!!! They were so young I was wondering if someone else got knocked up...

Didn't know she had an illness. Hope they both get through it.

Reading the article. I thought they are both doing so well, and are such a good-looking pair...
Then that news at the end. Kinda like a sad romance come to life.  :(

Well. There's no greater power than love.  :heart:

Ayaka to release best album

Popular singer Ayaka (21) will be releasing a best album on September 23, titled "Ayaka's History 2006-2009." The collection will include all of Ayaka's singles to date, and the limited edition will have ten more songs voted on by fans. In April, Ayaka announced that she married actor Hiro Mizushima (25) and that she would be suspending her singing career at the end of this year due to Graves' disease. This album will span her entire career so far, from her debut single "I believe" in 2006 up to her latest song, "Minna Sora no Shita," released a few weeks ago.

The regular edition of "Ayaka's History" contains one disc with 16 tracks - 13 songs from all 10 of her CD singles (three were double A-sides), 2 songs from her collaborative singles with Kobukuro, and her digital-only single "For today." The limited edition of the album will include a second disc with 10 songs, chosen by fans from the rest of her entire discography. The limited edition also comes in two flavors, one packaged with a photobook and the other with a DVD of music videos and other clips.

Ayaka's final concert to be shown in theaters

On November 18, singer Ayaka (21) performed at the Osaka-jo Hall, her last solo concert before she goes on hiatus at the end of this year. Due to strong interest from her fans, it has been decided that the concert will be shown in select theaters across the country.

Ayaka sang a total of thirteen songs for the concert, which was titled "MTV Unplugged ayaka." MTV gave away 10,000 free invitations to the event, though 200,000 fans had applied. Because of the response, MTV is putting together an "MTV Unplugged ayaka - cinema edition" for theatrical screening.

The video will play at 13 theaters ranging from Hokkaido to Fukuoka, including Shinjuku Piccadilly in Tokyo. The screenings are currently scheduled for an 8-day run starting on January 5, 2010. Each venue will hold between 1 and 4 showings in a day, with an estimated total audience of more than 43,000 people throughout Japan. Tickets became available on December 11, but more showings may be added, depending on sales.
