I like "Waiting in the rain" and "Arco" I think those will be peformed for sure...
DVD/BD release for 20th Anniversary Live says that "Kore Kara" will have a special Music Video too!
She said on the Youtube Streaming that she was surprised that "Kore Kara" was liked by many people
I'm looking for the other songs.. This year is great!

I did some digging about the remaining tracks:
- Sanagi, composed and arranged by the same guy who did Get no Satisfaction, so we can perhaps expect some high-tempo song
- Road Movie, written by Kaori Kano who did Ame ga Furu and Mizuumi
- That is To Say, composed and arranged by h-wonder who wrote Loop, Honey Comb, Fuyu desuka, Spika and action!, so we can expect a "Clamp" song
- Iris, written by Maaya, arranged by Shoko Suzuki who wrote NO FEAR/あいすること, a happy ending, Kazemachi Jet, Kioku-there's no end, Universe, Saigo no Mameshiba, stand up,girls!, SAVED

They will release the movie which was screened during the Korekara performance. It's a compilation of Maaya's videos in chronological order. We see it in the trailer at the end.

There's a section on the Special Mini Website with Anniversary comments by Kanno, CLAMP, h-wonder, Kono Shin, Mori Toshiyuki, Takahito Uchisawa (androp) and more:
http://www.jvcmusic.co.jp/maaya/followmeup/#mainPage

A friend tried to translate Kanno's message. (It must have some mistakes so feel free to correct)
Watching your singing from the back at Saitama Super Arena I thought that I have been following you from the beginning.
You are wise, soft and cheerful creature!
From now on, I ask you that you keep teaching me more things that you feel and see with your eyes.
20th Anniversary Congratuations

Yoko Kanno

My thoughts so far:
- Follow Me, which was everyone's less appreciated track, strangely keeps on sounding better at each new sample
- Sanagi, written by the guy who did Get no Satisfaction, as expected, is an up-tempo song and sounds very good
- No new passage for Aruko, so the full version will tell us if it's just good or if it's awesome: it'll have to be well built and the song will have to transform itself and not stay as calm as it is in the different samples so far. Yoko Kanno is likely to do something great, but in the past few years she hasn't been playing that much anymore with her songs arrangements so I'm a bit doubtful
- Waiting for the Rain has more and more chances to be the best track in the album: besides having English lyrics, it seems to have quiet verses and a very powerful chorus despite having a relatively slow tempo
- Road Movie sounds good so far for a down-tempo song (written by the composer of Ame ga Furu and Mizuumi)
- That is to Say, written by Maaya, seems to be one of the 2 piano ballads of the album, and maybe the saddest one. This one should sound Clamp-ish because of h-wonder who wrote Loop, Honey Comb, Fuyu desuka, Spika and action! but the sample doesn't sound that great
- Kasukana Melody sounds not that bad and seems to be a cheerful Café song
- Iris, also written by Maaya, seems like another piano ballad, and seems to have off-pitch chords (maybe due to the sample quality), it might be the most disappointing song so far but the sample is (hopefully) too short to be sure of anything

So Sanagi is the fastest song of the album, followed by Follow Me and Waiting for the Rain with its pretty powerful chorus, so that makes 3 the count of powerful new songs in this album!
Apart from that, the other songs are more relaxing, only Aruko differs from the rest being a sad Yoko Kanno ballad and we already know it's gonna be at least a good song.

You'll probably get it before me! Amazon hasn't shipped it yet, and I won't be at home to receive it anyway so I'll have it ship again the following day, hopefully Wednesday or Thursday.

I don't get it. You live in Tokyo. Why don't you just go to a store and buy it there?
