Setlist Source: Amped-Echoz @ H!O

The setlist fort Berryz Koubou’s Concert Tour Fall 2009 ~Medachitaii!~ has been released. Among the main points of the setlist are the performance of the new songs, a Chinami solo (I am really excited about this), beatboxing and Sea Bream cosplay (just as confused as you are).

I have to admit that as a Chinami fan I was extremely glad to see that she gets a solo, since she really needs more attention because of her vocal abilities (you can notice I am completely biased). From what I can notice only Momo and Chinami got solo’s so at least that is a good sign that Tsunku is promoting each member well.

The Special Generation costumes sound a bit weird, especially Momoko dressing up as a fish store, but I guess they had a good reason (maybe not). The beatboxing during Jingusikan sounds great, and hopefully we can get to see it soon to see who is the best beatboxer in Berryz Koubou (I’m guessing Momo).

The concert duration was about 1 hour and 40 minutes long according to Amped-Echoz, so there was plenty of songs and performances to make it a great concert. Overall I am really glad to see that they included many of their best songs, and although some of the costumes sound strange (especially the fish store costume) I bet it was really fun for both the fans and for Berryz.

The Berryz Koubou Concert Tour 2009 Fall ~Medachitaii!~ will have performance dates on October 10, 11, 12, 17; November 3, 7, 8, 15, 28, 29; and December 5 (I will add more info to this date section later).

Berryz Koubou Calendar 2010 CoverHagiwara Mai PB Cover 1233

Two releases today, Berryz Koubou’s 2010 calendar and Hagiwara Mai’s 1st PB:

Berryz Koubou 2010 Calendar: The 2010 Berryz Koubou calendar featuring all of the members. There are no previews of the calendar apart from the cover, so I can’t really say that I like it or not. What I can say that I like is the cover, which features all of the members in waiter costumes.

The sky setting isn’t the best, mainly because of the lack of clouds, but the rainbow was a nice touch, and the members all get a chance to appear (even though 4 of the most popular members are at the front the members in the back manage to get enough space to stand out).

I would recommend the calendar to Berryz Koubou fans, since it features all of the members and it is a great way to see the members every day for a year.

Hagiwara Mai – Hagiwara Mai (PB): Hagiwara Mai’s 1st PB release. Most of the previews that have come out aren’t the best in quality so I can’t really give an opinion about them, but there a few that I can give my opinion about. For example the cover, which features Maimai wearing a dress and smiling at the camera, which is my favorite of all of the pictures from the PB I have seen. There are also some other ones, such as these two:

Hagiwara Mai PB 1544Hagiwara Mai PB 1356

The back cover of the PB (right) and half a picture of the PB (I didn’t modify it, I actually found the picture like this). The back cover features Maimai in a schoolgirl costume, and the image from the PB features Maimai in a blue polka dotted bikini. The back cover looks great and I really like that they included the pink backpack since it looks great on her.

The bikini picture (all of the other previews were bikini as well) looks good and it also manages to show us a new image of Maimai that we haven’t seen. She isn’t a kid anymore, but it is kind of strange to see Maimai wearing a bikini when most fans have an image of her as the smallest girl in C-ute.

Overall I would recommend the PB to her fans, since she it is her first PB and it would be great if Maimai fans can show UFA that they support her. If I had to say a reason for buying this PB I would simply say “to support her”, if fans show their support she becomes a more popular member and as a result we get to see more of her in PV’s and she gets more lines.

Next release date is the 10/21 with Maimai’s solo DVD.
