Dakishimete Dakishimete PV and Covers
February 16, 2009

Below are the covers and PV for Berryz Koubou‘s new single.

[ limited / regular ]

Dakishimete Dakishimete PV

I like the covers, simple but still nice looking. I think I prefer the regular one to the limited.

As for the PV, I honestly think it’s one of the best ones to come from H!P in a while. It looks like their was actually some budget. Every girl looks gorgeous, and the dance is really interesting. The song is also pretty good too.

The single will be released on March 11th.


Berryz Koubou 19th Single
December 23, 2008

Berryz Koubou will release their 19th single titled Dakishimete Dakishimete on March 11th, the Single V on March 18th.

Sweet. Although they also have a best album coming up soon, it seems like they will be busy. I hope this song takes on a mature style, I just want to to how well they can handle it since it’s been a while since we had a mature song.

Also, fun fact (sorta). In the five years since their debut, their first single of the year was always released sometime in March. It seems like this tradition won’t be broken anytime soon. :P

Berryz Best and Omoi Afurete Covers
December 19, 2008

Below are the covers for Berryz Koubou’s and Matsuura Aya’s new albums.

I like the regular edition (right) better. The colors of the background match nicely with the outfits. The limited cover isn’t bad at all though. Also, I’m totally loving how Risako looks during this release, she’s so cute~

The album will be released on January 14th.

Really beautiful cover here. It’s not really something you’d expect from H!P. I love how she looks~ Don’t be fooled, this album only comes in the regular edition – one of the covers posted above is the slipcase cover while the other is the actual CD cover.

Her album will be release don January 21st.

PS – I want to apologize for posting news and reviews later than I usually do. I don’t have as much time as I did over the summer. But since I have winter break now, I will try to post news as soon as I hear about it and finish writing my reviews. Thanks for reading ^^

New Berryz Koubou Artist Photos
December 11, 2008

The Official Hello! Project Shop has updated Berryz Koubou’s artist photos which features them in the outfits for their new best album.

The outfits are so cute~ I think Saki, Maasa and Risako look best in theirs.

The official artist photos for Berryz Koubou on the Official Hello! Project Site have been changed.

How long have these been up? I just noticed them. Sorry if I am late on this. O_o

Momoko looks like a child. Why can’t they make her look her age for once? Miyabi’s hair makes her face look longer than it actually is. And Yurina’s outfit = lol. I really like Saki and Risako’s pictures though.

Furare Pattern Full Song
November 3, 2008

Below is the full version of the Berryz Koubou song Furare Pattern, which is the b-side to their new single, Madayade.

Furare Pattern

Weird. O_o Although I really like it! Some parts of the songs are really weird and the robot-ish effect on the voices is a bit distracting, but this is a really catchy song and I think it may have even worked to be the a-side. But seriously – will we ever get a serious single from Berryz?

The single will be released on November 5th.

Madayade and Lotta Love Lotta Love PVs
October 27, 2008

The PVs for Berryz Koubou’s new single Madayade and for Buono!’s new single Lotta Love Lotta Love have been released.


Lotta Love Lotta Love

Madayade PV actually looks like they spent some money on it! Lolz Berryz in an office. Although, the dance is really really weird and a bit embarrassing. Even more so than Monkey Dance. Lol at the random shot of Miyabi’s chest at 0:51. And Yurina sticks out too much. I love me some Yulina, but really. She is as tall as a skyscraper and she’s wearing bright yellow. WHY. It just looks bad. I do like the song though, which is good, because I have already ordered the single lol.

I don’t really like the Buono! PV…what happened? Their last four PVs were really good, and all this basically is a dance shot with a few close ups. All the girls look great, especially Miyabi, but it gets boring. There’s no cute little “story line” like the other Buono! PVs. The song is still awesome though.

Your thoughts?

Madayade is being released on November 5th and Lotta Love Lotta Love is being released on November 12th.

Berryz Koubou Best Album
October 23, 2008

Berryz Koubou is releasing a best album on January 14th. The name of it is currently unknown.

初回盤(DVD付):PKCP-5130~1 税込 3,780円
通常盤:PKCP-5132 税込 3,150円

Awesome~ It will probably have all of their singles from now on there and possibly one new song. I believe January 14th was the day Berryz Koubou was first announced as a group, give or take a couple days. Happy 5th anniversary!

Above are the covers for Berryz Koubou’s new single. The one on top is the limited edition and the bottom one is the regular edition.

They are actually pretty nice. The regular one makes me lol. Risako looks like an absolute giant and putting Momoko between her and Yurina is just hilarious.

By the way, the song grew on me. :P I don’t like it that much, but I think that I will probably buy it in my next order.

The single will be released on November 5th.

Madayade Preview
October 14, 2008

A preview for Berryz Koubou’s new single Madayade has been released.

Listen Here

I don’t really know. The even line distribution is nice, but the song sounds so out of place. It’s almost winter, and it sounds really summer-ish. The chorus is also kinda annoying. So far, I’m not impressed, but it will probably grow on me when we get a better preview or something.

The single is being released on November 5th.
