The title for Berryz Koubou’s 27th single has been revealed to be Aa, Yoru ga Akeru (Eng: Aa, Break of Dawn).
The title was revealed at a recent event and it was later confirmed on Shimizu Saki’s blog.
It’s great to see that Captain confirmed the title for all Berryz fans on her blog since it seems that her blog is the only confirmation of the title so far, and while we haven’t seen the confirmation from the H!P site it seems that this will be the title for sure since Captain has mentioned it quite a lot in the past few days, most recently in a post about how they just finished shooting the PV for it.
The title means something along the lines of Aa, Break of Dawn, and while it doesn’t point to a specific genre it seems to lean towards the ballad area, but since we have no preview and most of Tsunku’s songs are hard to specify before a preview we will have to wait until the song is performed in a concert or when a radio preview is released.
I like the title so far but whether or not they will continue with their recent mature ballad sound will be something we will have to find out when a preview is released, although I hope we get to see another energetic song from them soon. The single will be released in early August so most likely we will get a preview sometime in early to mid July, so hopefully all Berryz Koubou fans have their copies of the single reserved.
As mentioned before the title hasn’t been confirmed by the official H!P site or by other sites such as CDJapan or Neowing but since it was revealed on Captain’s blog and she has mentioned it quite a lot it’s most likely the title for sure, but I will update with an official confirmation once it is released.
The release date is set for 8/10.
EDIT: I’m not completely sure on the translation of the title, but it might refer to “Aa, Break of Dawn” or “Aa, Dawn of Night” or something similar, but I will update with a verified translation once I find one.
