1. Hot Time
2. A. ～answer～
3. Hot Time instrumental
4. A. ～answer～ instrumental
And what everyone's been waiting for...the ALBUM!
There's a first-press limited edition that contains a photobook (Its cover is the same as the CD-only version). There's also a special message DVD that you can send in for if you buy the "Hot Time" single AND the album. Only 10 people will be selected for it, and entries have to be postmarked by 3/31. I have a feeling that it won't be available for fans outside of Japan anyway :/
2.ラブリー・キャッツアイ～ネコはコタツで丸くならないの巻～ (Lovely Cat's Eye ~Neko wa Kotatsu de Maruku Naranai no Maki~)
5.アリとキリギリス～10 years later～ (Ari to Kirigirisu ~10 years later~)
6.砂の城のマ－メイド～陸と海の世界～ (Suna no Shiro no Mermaid ~Oka to Umi no Sekai~)
7.子供の事情＞大人の私情2 (Kodomo ni Jijou > Otona no Shijou 2)
8.ガラスのくつ (Glass no Kutsu)
10.フィンガー5メドレー (Finger 5 Medley)
The DVD will include videos for "Suna no Shiro no Mermaid", "A. ", and an alternate version of "Hot Time". It will also include making-ofs for all of her PVs (so why isn't all of her PVs on here?)
The Finger 5 Medley will, naturally, be a medley of Finger 5 songs. Her site doesn't say which songs will be used, but I assume that "Kojin Jugyou" will be in there, and maybe a couple of other big hits like "Gakuen Tengoku" and "Koi ni Dial 6700".
I kinda have to admit that I'm a bit disappointed with the album and DVD's tracklisting. Seems like rather slim pickings, especially considering that there's too much old material on there. And it annoys me when avex puts some other extra PVs on an album DVD, but not the PVs from the singles. OH WELL.
The PV for "Suna no Shiro no Mermaid" is up on jpopsuki and other places, by the way.
EDIT: While looking on CD Japan, I see a FOURTH version of a CD up for release on 2/28...except this one is a "cover song mini album" which will actually include "Kojin Jugyou" and cover songs from lives. I don't know whether this is true or BS, but I guess we'll find out (and it'd explain why "Kojin Jugyou" didn't end up on the first album).
