[Update] Berryz Koubou And C-ute Single Announced, Titled “Amazuppai Haru ni Sakurasaku”

28 08 2011

A new single for the collaboration concert of Berryz Koubou and C-ute has been announced. It will be titled Amazuppai Haru ni Sakurasaku (On a bittersweet spring, the sakura blooms).

The single comes in 3 editions, one regular and 2 Limited Editions, A and B, which will each probably feature a bonus of one of the groups.

Alongside the Mobekimasu single announcement, I’m really happy to see that Berryz Koubou and C-ute will yet have a great joint single in time for their upcoming joint concert since those type of concerts are usually a great opportunity for us to have a single from the 2 groups combined, and with having H!P Kids reunited for a single after many years is really amazing news.

According to the translation of the title, it seems that the song will be somwhat calm and happy because there’s a mention of spring and of cherry trees blossoming which always remind me of a happy and calm place, and it probably will turn out to be this way since the title of their concert tour is also somewhat related to calm and relaxation with the word “Island”.

Even though we can’t know for sure the content of the single, it could either feature a main song by both groups as well as another c/w by both, or just like Mobekimasu’s single, it could feature a different c/w on each edition that belongs to either C-ute or Berryz Koubou, but we’ll just have to wait until more information is released to find out for sure.

Overall, I’m extremely happy about this announcement since C-ute and Berryz Koubou are groups that have solid members in them with great singing potential thanks to the many years they spent together, so hopefully we’ll get to see what kind of song it turns out to be.

Hopefully we’ll later on find out the content of the single as well as if there will be a PV or not since it seems like a great opportunity for one to be done.

The release date is set for 11/09.

EDIT: It seems that the song will be the ending theme of the movie “Oosama Game” that Berryz Koubou and C-ute members are participating in according to Neowing, and it was also said that a PV will actually be filmed with C-ute’s version of it on one Limited Edition, and Berryz Koubou’s version on the other.

C-ute will be releasing their Limited Edition under Zetima while Berryz will be releasing theirs under Piccolo Town, and there will also be 2 different c/w songs for each group, so I’m thinking that the Limited Edition that comes with C-ute’s vers. of the PV will come with their c/w song, same for Berryz with the second Limited Edition.

Even though everything seems unclear right now, when the clear and detailled information is out it will be much easier to understand the content of the single and it’s concept since right now, everything seems kind of mixed up on information sites because the single has just been announced.

EDIT 2: Things have somewhat started to clear up since it was announced thanks to CDJapan that the single will actually be released in 6 editions for a total of 2 Regular Editions, 2 Limited A Editions and 2 Limited B Editions, which is due to the fact that each group will be releasing for itself 3 versions of the single under their own label while the other group does the same for their versions under their label.

The confusion was made because Sony Music Shop only posted the versions that come under Zetima for C-ute without stating Berryz’s versions under Piccolo Town (thanks to EmEl for the information).

I just exploded from happiness! *_________*
I’ve waited for a BeriKyuu collab for years, and it’s finally happening! Wow, H!P sure has been turning around for the better! Tsunku’s been very experimental lately, and I couldn’t be happier! Hats off to him and UFA!
I wonder how the song will sound! Can’t wait for a preview!

After seeing the “edit” I wish there was a Limited C edition now… Limited A could feature the regular PV, Limited B can feature Berryz only PV and Limited C can feature C-ute only PV… I’m kind of weird on stuff like this but I hope Berryz PV is on the Limited B because B for Berryz… And if there was a Limited C… C for C-ute..

I wonder what it would be like if they were an official group

This is exciting! I hope they release a PV. Somehow I’m picturing a bit of a Sakuragumi vibe….

To clear things up: there are actually 6 versions. These 3 versions on Sony’s site are all the C-ute versions (zetima is Sony). Piccolo Town is Berryz’s label, so there are three other versions for them.

Cute: Regular, A, B
