The pronunciation of the title is Mitsuboshi (みつぼし) according the Up-Front Works discography entry: http://www.up-front-works.jp/discography/zetima/102/a_01/index.html

Now THAT makes much more sense than having to call it 'Star Star Star' or something XD

I thought they were always talking about a giraffe??/!!!
which didnt make much sence to me, giraffe revolution, and i never seen any giraffe or giraffe print.....
but then again its japan, and they are all crazy like that.
maybe it was an underlying ploy to sell beer to children.

Kirarin XD

What a weird thing to put three stars to an album and then came up on how the pronunciation is. People who doesn't read the official site or sees the cm will keep seeing and saying hoshi hoshi hoshi XD

02.28 Kusumi's ☆☆☆
02.28 A BEST 2 (Ayumi Hamasaki)
03.14 BEST~BOUNCE & LOVERS~ (Koda Kumi)
03.28 AI am BEST (Ai Otsuka)

Just read aedon's post about a new Koda best. While I don't see Avex's unique interest in beating down Kirari, all these Best albums could have been scheduled any other day any other time because none of them was a must-release now. Avex is not at the risk of saturate their own market releasing three bests albums in a two-week difference from each other, but also at the risk of helping their rivals, aka H!P and Kirari. Our dear little star target are kids. Avex's Best focus on adult people. People going out for Avex Bests might end up buying Kirari as well. Singles will buy it for a little brother, a nephew... and couples will buy Kirari for their children. There ya go Avex, there ya go.

LOL I guess this is the true battle with Ayumi Hamasaki, then. I don't know how much Hamasaki sells these days, so I can't really say anything (if she still sells a lot, then I'm super proud if Koharu sells 1/3 of it). But I'm happy if the Kirari album sells more than the singles, cuz that's how it's "supposed" to be. At least comparing Koi*Kana and Balalaika's sales, there are still kids who don't have Koi*Kana and might wanna get this album. We'll see :D I hope it gets pimped properly :)

Koharu's album?!!!!

Actually, knowing that her other single was a good seller, Tsunku wouldn't miss the opportunity to make more money off of another album :D

With Ayu's sales the way they are now, I expect around 400-700k at the least for her BEST album. Dunno which one though.
she's my fire, my desire...

She looks FANTASTIC there.

I get the impression the 'tsukushima kirari' is a clever excuse for her to have a solo album and still appeal to both audiences.  I wouldn't be surprised if it's a mix of classic H!P style and fun kids' songs.  I ended up preordering it in good faith (I'm hoping the tracklist doesn't disappoint ;;;; )
