The Koda Kumi Rate PART I: The End. Onto the next part we go

well the fact that no tricks defeated my fave kumi song from this era obviously means i have to listen to it immediately. i doubt it will outdo selfish for me personally though. there are a lot of other songs in this part that i've never heard, so i'm going to head over to spotify right now and check them out.
nice job with the rate @evilsin! can't wait to join in for part 2, i believe that will feature most of the kuu songs i'm most familiar with.
Thank you so much for going through the rate, I hope you enjoyed your stay and is perched for Part II. You're not the only one who said their more familiar with the songs in it, so I expect it to be bigger and better than Part I overall. Oh, damn, only 5 days till the start of Part II!

Is there going to be a second opening for Part 1 for those of who were unable to participate (like Ayu's rate is doing)?
I... haven't actually thought about this. I don't really know how exactly @send photo is going to tally the new or revised votes. I mean, I'm open to suggestions, still to me it would be a bit weird to, say, add new votes and present the new results or a new winner. @send photo, what's good? Hit me up in those steamy Insta DMs if your ideas are that top secret (reference).
I can see how it would be strange to have to present a new winner. I just always assumed, for whatever reason, that once all the parts were completed, there would be like some kinda master thread with all the songs put together. But that seems like it might be pointless? I'm not sure.
Yeah, that I was going to do. After we finish with rating all of her songs I will make a combined spreadsheet to see how the songs from all parts stand against each other overall.
I'll be posting the master list with the new scores averaged in, I'm not redoing eliminations or anything. I know a few people regret missing part 1 and me taking a hiatus was partially to blame for that and this is my way of making it up to them, so it's kind of a unique situation with the Ayu rate.

That aside, maybe people scored only in the context of one part and want to revise their scores so it makes sense in the context of their entire discography. Ultimately it's up to good sis @evilsin but I didn't expect to start some new forum tradition where revisions are expected; just me making up for lost time.
Thank you for the detailed account, hun. I see, lemme think about it, @otenkiame, maybe someone else would also want to chime in on Part I? I mean, I personally would really like to see your scores for all these songs. Maybe we could make some fun just for us and keep the first results as official? Yeah, we'll see how it goes.
Would I be able to participate in Part II if I didn't take place in part I?

I am also intimately familiar with her early works so I could score each one pretty fast if needed!
Oh my god, of course you can. That would be stupid and elitist from my part to dismiss voters just because they didn't take part in Part I. Flops, though.

Most people who missed Part I were saying quite the opposite, actually, that they are more familiar with the songs from Part II, so I'm extra excited for it to start.

Can't believe Part 2 is about to drop. Where did the time go?!

I'd also be interested in submitting scores for part 1 if you decided to do that @evilsin!
ahhh If it's too much trouble it's fine, I'm not trying to pressure you to do it!

Oh wow! That makes 4 people who'd be interested! Maybe it's worth it after all?
I regularly still listen to her earlier albums from time to time, so part I did that, I guess.
I'm so freaking happy that you guys are ready for this. The new thread is going up later today.

Okay, I see that people are willing to revise Part I. In that case I'll think about it a bit more, but we'll probably keep the result that we have official and a separate one with the additional voters.
