Buono!2 Covers
February 1, 2009

Below are the covers for Buono!’s new album.

[limited / regular]

The covers are cute. I think I like the limited edition one more. Miyabi’s hair kinda bugs me, but everyone looks nice and the covers aren’t the usual crap that they get most of the time.

The album will be released on February 11th.

co・no・mi・chi – Buono!’s 6th Single

01. co・no・mi・chi

Rating – 9/10

Very nice song, and I believe it’s the first  Buono! song composed by Tsunku. The song took a while to grow on me, but it’s a really great song and Tsunku should definitely be involved with more of their songs. If you compare all of the girls vocals to the vocals in their earlier songs such as Honto no Jibun or Renai Rider, their vocals have definatly improved and this song really showcases it well.

02. Muteki no ∞ Power

Rating – 9/10

One of their best b-sides. The chorus is extremely catchy and like the a-side, it shows off the improvement of their vocals. In my opinion, this song is almost as good as Kokoro no Tamago.

Overall Rating – 9/10

Very nice single, and it’s their only single where both songs are equally good. I seriously can’t pick which one I like the best! This single has also made me like Miyabi a lot more lately…she used to be 6 on my rankings and now she is 3. I never noticed how much I love her voice.

co・no・mi・chi PV
January 11, 2009

Below is the link for the PV for Buono!’s new single.


I believe this is the first song Tsunku has composed for Buono!. On the forums I visited, a lot of people are unhappy with both the song and PV. I guess Tsunku shouldn’t compose their songs anymore lol. I like the song a lot, but it broke the very short “chain of awesome”. Gachinko de Ikou! was my favorite Buono! song back then, and I thought nothing could top it. Then along came Lotta Love Lotta Love, the best Buono song, ever. I guess that song will be very, very hard to beat. The song is catchy, but just not good enough. And the PV is kinda weird, with the walking green scenes and all. I liked the street though, and Miyabi looked gorgeous throughout the whole thing.

The single will be released on January 21st.

New Buono! Artist Photos
January 9, 2009

The artist photos for Buono! on the Official Hello! Project Website, showing the girls in the outfits for their new single.

Totally love the outfits. Although I eventually came to love Lotta Love Lotta Love‘s outfits, I’m glad Buono! is back to their rock-ish style. I think Momoko’s outfit is my favorite.

Below are the covers for Buono!’s new single. The limited edition is on the left and the regular on the right.

The regular edition looks OK despite the fact that Airi and Momoko’s expressions are very weird. I like the limited better. Momoko looks really great in this style, Airi kinda looks similar as she did in Namida no Iro and I like Miyabi’s outfit from what we can see.

The single is being released on January 21st.

Lotta Love Lotta Love – Buono!’s 5th Single

Lotta Love Lotta Love

Rating – 10/10

Love this song! One of their best in my opinion. It is different from their normal, rock-ish style but they pulled it off very well. I think I still like Gachinko de Ikou! better though, but that’s a hard song to beat. The PV and outfits for this song could have been better, but seriously, this is an amazing song. I don’t think I have ever seen someone say they didn’t like it on any of the forums. Buono! really does have great songs, I hope they stay even after Shugo Chara! ends.

My Love

Rating – 10/10

At first when I saw the title of the song, I thought it sounded to similar to the a-side. I thought i would be another generic track, but was I wrong…best Buono! b-side? OK, maybe not as good as Kokoro no Tamago, but really, really close. This song is extremely catchy and the vocals are amazing.

Overall Rating – 10/10

Although I like Gachinko de Ikou! more, I think this is Buono!’s best single so far. Both songs on this single are amazing, and as much as I love Gachinko, Lady Panther is only an average song to me. Keep up the great work Buono!

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.

Lotta Love Lotta Love Covers
October 21, 2008

Above are the covers for Buono!’s new single. Limited is on the left, regular on the right.

They are OK…kinda cheap. But then again, Buono! is known for bad covers so I wasn’t really expecting anything. I like the limited cover better than the regular one, which sucks, since I’ve already ordered the regular. Maybe I will like it better once I get it though…I remember not liking the cover for Honto no Jibun until I actually had it in my hands. One thing I do like though is Miyabi’s hair style – so cute!

The single is being released on November 12th.

Lotta Love Lotta Love and Minna no Tamago Previews
October 3, 2008

A preview for Buono!’s new single has been aired on Shugo Chara!.

Lotta Love Lotta Love

I LOVE IT. The beginning in so epic, and then it just gets better and better from there. I might even like this more than Gachinko de Ikou!, which was THE song for me for like one month. This is AWESOME. Momoko and Airi are rockin’ it as usual and Miyabi sounds so amazingly different for some reason. Buono!, why are you so awesome?

Here is the Shugo Chara Egg! song Minna no Tamago. Normally I would make a separate post but I am feeling extremely lazy at the moment. The song is really cute! I can’t reconize their voices though lol.

The Buono! single will be released on November 12th and the Shugo Chara Egg! single will be released on December 10th.
