In 2001, then 14-year-old Korean "Bishojo" (beautiful girl) made a sensational debut in JPop scene with her amazing singing and dancing talents. She has released consecutive hits such as "Every Heart - Minna no Kimochi" used as the outro theme to the hyper hit anime series "Inuyasha" and "Beside You -Boku wo Yobu Koe-," the theme song of "Asobot Senki GOKU." Through well-known animes, she has attracted a lot of fans all over the world apart from Japan and South Korea.

This album completely covers her 13 singles from the first "Quincy / Konoyo no Shirushi. 16 tracks in all, including "BoA w/z SOUL'd OUT / LA-LA-LA Love Song" as a bonus track. (originally included in a tribute album to Toshinobu Kubota). The limited-edition-only DVD has 15 music clips like "m-flo Loves BoA/the Love Bug " (from m-flo/ASTROMANTIC) and "Be the One," which was inspired by the PlayStation 2 game "Sengoku Musou" and unfortunately was not featured in this best-of compilation CD.
