Berryz Koubou-Lady Gaga ni Narou ka?

The PV for Berryz Koubou’s upcoming single, Heroine ni Narou ka, has just been uploaded to their official youtube channel.

This PV is actually really awesome. It’s a lot more visually creative then your average Berryz PV. Despite this PV being basically the H!P standard dance shot and close up formula, but they’ve still managed to make this PV really interesting to watch. Maybe it’s the Lady Gaga wigs or maybe it’s the facts that there’s a least an effort made to have some sort of storyline. Nah, it’s probably the Lady Gaga wigs. XD But I bet Ai-chan is probably really upset though. She’d probably kill to rip off Lady Gaga’s style in a PV. I actually don’t really mind them getting inspiration from Lady Gaga. American and Korean artists have been copying her style for a while now. But I don’t know, for that reason the PV comes off as being artsy, high quality, and cutting edge. The only complaint I really has is, I wish they focused less on the Lady Gaga outfits and more on the regular ones. The regular ones are really amazing and all the girls look super incredible in them. Especially Chinami and Yurina.
 
 
 

I was actually really impressed by this. It’s an awesome effect.

 
 

Despite it being similar to effects Perfume uses.
 
 

I doubt the Lady Gagaish style was done by accident.
 
 

I mean a lighting bolt on the face, where have I seen that before?
 

Oh yeah that’s right, Lady Gaga started that.
 

Lady Gaga never actually wore this makeup, but it does remind me of Poker Face. And by the way look how fierce Miaybi looks. *O*
 

Wow, Chinami’s makeup is incredible.
 

Risako’s makeup is way too big and too close to her eye, that it just comes off as awkward.
 
 
 

I really like the dance for this song. There are a lot of intense and exciting moves.

 
 

Awesome effect!
 
 

Ok, this move sucks. XD
 

Look at Risako looking all sultry and hot. I just wish the video quality was better. :/
 
 

I love this part of the dance. It reminds me of Kimagure Princess.
 
 

Momoko’s the only member who looks adorable in her makeup instead of high fashion. XD
 

Woah, look at Saki bringing it.
 
 

And now everyone is sad for some reason.
 

Even acting sad Chinami looks gorgeous.
 

This dance moves always impresses me. I think Berryz has done this before, but I can’t remember. I know NEWS has. XD
 
 

Berryz Koubou-Heroine ni Narou ka preview

The radio rip for Berryz Koubou’s upcoming single, Heroine ni Narou ka, was finally released. The concert rip for this song has been floating around the internet for nearly a month. But I haven’t listened to the concert rip (well until today) at, because I prefer to wait for the radio rip to be released. Usually because the concert rip is either poor quality or the song differs a lot from the concert rip. In the Aisaresugiru Koto wa Nai no yo concert rip the background music soundly completely different.



The radio rip is only a little less than half of the song, but it’s more than enough to get an overall feel of the song. The music for the song has a very techno and electronic sound to it. It reminds me a lot of Morning Musume’s Fantasy ga Hajimaru and I’m Lucky Girl. I guess Tsunku’s been in an 80’s or techno phase recently. I’m not really complaining. I absolutely love the electronic sort of house music beat that this song has. Berryz hasn’t released a song this danceable since Dakishimete Dakishimete. Even though the music is really amazing I think the vocals are lacking a great deal. There’s hardly any emotion in it. Besides the chorus only Saki’s and Miyabi’s long notes are even memorable.
The only really good part about the singing is how evenly divided the lines are. Except, correct me if I’m wrong, I didn’t really hear any solo lines by Yurina. I think she might have only had 1. Which is a tough break. But since she lead Shining Power, I guess she can’t really complain.


Here’s the radio rip:
