Is there no info about 7th Berryz Times album?

15 03 2011

Right now there is no mention about Berryz album, and since they are in a different label (King Records, which is part of Piccolo Town) instead of Zetima we will probably have to wait and see if Piccolo Town (Berryz Koubou) or Hachama (H!P Concerts, S/mileage, or Mano Erina) release an announcement about delays.

16 03 2011

Seems like 7th Berryz Album won’t be postponed.

15 03 2011

This is completely unlikely but… any chance they postpone Takahashi’s graduation? With the quake they will be losing most of the extra sales a graduation usually brings with it.

That and I don’t want to see her go :(

15 03 2011

I doubt that they would postpone her graduation since it will happen until the end of the year, which should be plenty of time for Tokyo to go back to normal.

15 03 2011

This is totally understandable. Japan may not be able to get back to normal for a few years, but I assume Tokyo will in the next 1/2 a year. I think that’s realistic. As long as none are cancelled, that’s fine. But I do wonder if the Momusu single set for march will be postponed until something like July. Maybe that’l be Ai-chan’s last single.

15 03 2011

I don’t think it’ll be postponed that long.
Maybe end of April? That seems most likely

15 03 2011

I hope Japan doesn’t take that long to recover, they play a very important role in the economy in the world and especially where I live so if they continue to suffer eventually everyone else will too. I do hear a lot of news that Japan is expected to recover in 6 months so I hope that’s true.

nooo not Maji Desu Ka Ska TT_TT

17 03 2011

It sucks, H!P (especially morning musume) were off to a great start this year! Then this had to happen >< I just hope that they can bounce back when the whole of japan does.

17 03 2011

Heroine ni Narou Ka!’s sales really suffered from the quake and tsunami… It’s sad, I was hoping they would do really well on this single! :(

I guess it is understandable though… Hopefully H!P can bounce back!

H!P on Hold « Nights4Blogging

[…] Due to the effects of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami many of the H!P events scheduled for the latter part of this March and early April have been postponed or outright cancelled. This includes virtually all radio and television appearances, and even concerts, albums and singles.  Although, in a sign of steadfastness, it appears that Berryz Kobo’s newest album 7 Berryz Times will keep its original release date of March 30th. Hello!SayuNii has compiled a list of all such changes. […]
