Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda VS Otakebi Boy WAO

I haven’t done a Berryz Koubou PV review in an extremely long time, which I’m sorry about. But I usually only do PV reviews for PVs that I’m really excited about or really disappointed about. Usually Berryz videos fall some where in the middle. A lot also has to do with liking the song. I usually am not impressed with Berryz songs the first time I hear them. It’s not until I hear them randomly weeks later and realize how amazing they really are. Except Ryuusei Boy. I started out liking it and not it annoys me. XD
But anyway, since this is their 3rd double a-side, I’m going to finally do a double review. (Which I planned to do with their last 2 singles, but just never got around to doing.) So I’m going to compare ever aspect of each PV to see which one is the better PV.

I’m gonna start off by saying this two songs are about as opposite as they can get, so both PVs reflect that. So feel free to take my review with a grain of salt.

Comparison 1: Outfits

Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda:

The outfits for this PV are simply gorgeous. Every single outfit is adorable and accessorized perfectly. Even though Maasa’s and Saki’s outfits are the ugliest, I would still probably wear them. The outfits are very pretty and casual.

Otakebi Boy WAO:

Believe it or not I think this outfits are utter win. For the most part I hate camouflage patterned clothes. But absolutely I love pink camo. (Go figure. XD) I also love the racer gloves, I think they make the outfit. I these outfits give them the tough aspect they were going for while still looking adorable.

Verdict: Even though I love both outfits Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda wins. Mostly because they can be worn outside of hunting.

Comparison 2: Dance

Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda:

This song is too slow to have a difficult or memorable dance. So the dance is pretty boring. It just falls flat. The moves are just to simple for my taste. It looks like it would take a normal fan a half hour to learn. I prefer idol dances like Mikan and C/C, that look like they would take a couple of hours to learn.

Otakebi Boy WAO:

This dance is pretty boring also, for the same reason. The dance it just too simple. It feels like H!P choreographers aren’t trying anymore. Though there are a few parts of the dance that were cool to look out. Just not too many.

Verdict: Even though both dances are pretty lame Otakebi Boy WAO wins. The song is a lot faster than Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda, so the dance is a lot faster at parts. It’s also a lot more energetic and cuter. And for some reason I dig the O WAO, WAO dance parts. XD

Comparison 3: The girls

Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda:

The girls look amazing as they always do. Especially Momoko, Yurina, and Maasa. They are hands down the prettiest in this video. Maasa completely takes me by surprise. I usually never notice her, but in this video it’s hard not to. She looks beyond amazing.

Otakebi Boy WAO:

Even though this is the tough themed video the girls still look great. Especially Yurina, Chinami, and Saki. I actually think Chinami and Saki look better in this video.

Verdict: There is no winner for this. I mean my favorites look good in both video. After that it really comes down to individual girls rather than as a whole. Otakebi Boy WAO would win for Miyabi, Chinami, Saki, and Risako. But Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda would win for Momoko, Yurina, and Maasa.

Comparison 4: Overall concept

Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda has a cute and playful theme. So there are several cute scenes throughout the video.

Cute scene 1

Cute scene 2

Cute Scene 3

Cute scene 4

Cute scene 5

Cute scene 6

Otakebi Boy WAO has a tougher and cooler concept than Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda. So instead there are more cool scenes. Which usually involve lightning, since it’s used for the Inazuma 11 ending.

Cool scene 1

Cool scene 2

Cool scene 3

Verdict: Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda wins. Not only is it much cuter there’s a lot more going on in the video. Otakebi Boy WAO has nothing going on except dancing and lightning.

Comparison 5: Unoriginality comparison

Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda:

The looking at pictures scene reminds me way too much of aMa no Jaku.

aMa no Jaku

Otakebi Boy WAO:

Having a mic reminds me too much of Tan Tan Taan

Tan Tan Taan.

Verdict: There is none. PV makers should be more original.
