She already stated that she would definitely come back seeing as she can't stay away from music that long. Let's see how long it takes for her to return.

Hopefully a year / two years. We did it now without her for 1+ year so 2 years would make it seem quite right, but Hikki said that she wouldn't stay away longer than 5 years.

Hikaru Utada's fans around the world will be able to watch her December 8 concert at the Yokohama Arena, as her staff announced on Monday that the concert will be broadcast live on Ustream. Just last month, she also announced that the same concert is being shown live on 70 screens in 64 theaters across the country.

Her website has listed two Ustream channels: the "main channel" meant for PC viewing at a bitrate of 700kbps, and a "sub channel" suitable for iPhone and iPad viewing at a bitrate of 300kbps.

What a great show!
That piano version of Hymne à l'amour was really good, it should have come with the album. ^^
She will surely be missed!

I loved the show. Niji-iro basu, BLUE, Take 5 and Goodbye Happiness were so awesome. I loved that she performed those songs.

It's a shame that Utada won't be releasing any new music in the near future, but I am so happy to have been able to enjoy her talents for so long and to watch her grow as an artist. I hope that her break is a rewarding and fulfilling experience for her, and I look forward to hearing new music from her again in years to come. :love:

There is rumor that she might be doing something to help with tsunami relief in some way. It is not currently known if that means she'll record a song or release something new or appear on tv or anything though, as her hiatus is underway. I wonder if anything will come of it?

I was hoping for a Hikki appreciation thread, but this is just a download thread.. too bad.

I just want to say that she is the best artist in Japan. c:

edit: I saw the thread's last posts, haha! I loved her performance. Sure, her voice hasn't been the same ever sings Utada United in 2006, but she's still very good live. I'm going to miss her, but she needs her time off. I love her so much! c:
Love the world! c:

I can't believe I didn't go see the WILD LIFE concert. Was only 30 minutes from the arena. Stupid work. I should have just gone and gotten fired. Only had two weeks left on my contract at that point, anyway. I couldn't even watch the live feed because the concert was over by the time I got home too. :x Why?! Why was it on a Thursday!!

Pretty much the only thing in my life I regret. That, and to a much lesser extent, not going to Perfume's Tokyo Dome concert. That job stole my life....

As much as I miss awaiting Hikaru's releases and reading her blog, I was somehow kind of happy for her when she announced her hiatus. If she wants to take five years to find herself, I can wait until then to hear from her again. It would just make her new music that much better. (She's kind of on Twitter a bit, though.)

O.O Oh wow~
What I've been looking for.
I've only a few of her singles collection, and her second English album, so this is great.
Thank you :)

This thread was not very active it's too bad. I won't understand why these days her singles and albums sell for nearly nothing. I bought 18 CDs total last year and the cost of all those (not including Precious which I also bought) would have sold for 26,600 yen but I paid no more than 2000 yen (Also have the Devil Inside and Dirty Desire mix albums from iTunes). I am glad to own so many of her CDs but even those albums which sold so much are worth nothing these days. Don't know if it went down after her hiatus those years back but she is making a new album! Feel as though she won't be making a return when she releases it however, with that kid of hers but you can bet I will buy that album when it sells! Can't wait to dive into some fresh new Utada tracks. Saw one of those First Love 15th anniversary editions (don't know which edition it was) selling for 13,000 yen. Almost bought it but I don't know how these sell and if there could be any cheaper ones but 13,000 yen didn't seem to steep.

She should be releasing that new album this year I expect but is there any chance she will return this year?
