Are they starting to listen to what us mere mortals, who happen to be the ones who buy the stuff they release for their artist, have to say? Are they finally realising that there is competition out there for the number one idol agency?
So first up is Berryz Koubou - Shinning Power
Now the instrumental is catchy and seems to keep my very limited attention span interested enough to listen to the whole song. But Tsunku, why do you have these girls singing about Bento? Of all the things to write about.
Anyway, THE COSTUMES SUCK!!!! I applude you for trying to show that these girls are sexy young ladies but really, did your costme designer and set designer have no contact what so ever that you give these girls dark red black pattened chiffon costumes with gold spandex tank tops and shorts and a set that has nearly every colour of the rainbow plus white? Seriously? I think that MM's costumes would fit better in this PV than those.
And another problem with the overall styling,
I thought that Otakebi Boy was Chi's video even though she wasn't centre, but she managed to out shine even Miya, but this PV is ALL ABOUT YURINA KUMAI.
I'm loving the blonde streaks against her new dark brown colour and her body looks amazing in this PV.
It is a risk that UFA are taking with this single. This is the first time that someone other that Risako, Miyabi and Momoko have taken the lead AND centre position in Berryz. I personally think that this is a good risk. Yes, Yurina isn't the best singer in Berryz but finally, they do the right thing and put the BFG in the middle instead of at the end.
