Price: Y3333
Total length: 70:26 (12 tracks)

This is her first full album. She wrote almost all of the songs and gets great support of the wonderful list of I've arrangers.
Here you can enjoy a wide range of songs she can handle. Personally I prefer her love songs but I'm sure this will satisfy those with other tastes. My special favourite is the last track, a shamelessly sweet love song. ^_^
Here is some additional information she revealed at her concert; (i) The name of the main song "O" came from the French word "eau" and the song is inspired by the legend of Noah's Ark. (ii) Kotoko's performance at the I've Budoukan Live last year made her want to write a cheerful song to which the audience can wave their arms. But no one asked her to write such (this reminded me of Katakura Mikiya (ALI Project) in a very short chat with me ^_^;;) so did it herself to create egao o misete. Certainly its lyrics can be taken as a cheer message to Kotoko. (iii) She selected the arrangers for each song by herself. For example, she avoided Takase Kazuya (this must be a joke ^_^;;) and asked Iuchi Maiko to arrange two most feminine songs in the album.
