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.

  1. Can I just say how I COMPLETELY AGREE with everything you said? xD
    I got reminded of Tan Tan Taan really bad in Otakebi Boy Wao. And the lightening is overdone. But that doesn't stop me humming "O WAO WAO" all day xD Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda is a sweet song, but I PREFER Otakebi, because I'm all for loud, loud, colourful, and loud. Speaking of which, you may have converted me into an ALMOST NEWS fan. I did a translation of Sakura Girl (for fun? Yeah, that's right xD) and it made me smile a lot. Usually I just stick in safe territory,I.E Kanjani8. Where I am happy 8)But…I've always gone one about how "NEWS are boring, NEWS are big-headed"(DONT KILL MEEE xD) so, um, well done on SORT of converting me. Because it was this blog that told meh about Sakura Girl. Rant over. KTHXBAI. :3

  2. I'm glad you agree with me. :]
    I got immediately reminded of Tan Tan Taan too. H!P videos usually keep doing the same scenes in videos. It's really annoying. XD I'm not even sure why Otakebi Boy WAO needed microphones, it make no sense.
    I actually prefer Otakebi Boy WAO. I love how they are singing deeper, it's something completely different for Berryz. I totally get the O WAO stuck in my head too! XD
    Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda might have a better PV, but the song is a little boring. ._.
    Almost NEWS fan, that's awesome! NEWS is amazing, you'll probably be a complete NEWS fan by their next single. :] Sakura Girl does really have sweet lyrics. Most NEWS songs have the same type of lyrics, which is why I love NEWS.
    I don't really listen to Kanjani8 that often. I only like a few songs. Their older songs are pretty weird. XD But Kanjnai8 is pretty fun, though it's a little much for me. >_<
    NEWS isn't really that boring. I guess compared to like Kanjani8 and Arashi they are. But Shige and Koyama are the big personalities in NEWS. They're beyond amazing. :] And the only big headed person in NEWS is Tegoshi. Ryo is kinda big headed, but not really. He just has a I'm better than you and too cool for you personality. But not as bad as Jin's. XD Ryo's is just for show basically. He does act really sweet at times.
    And sort of converting isn't good enough. I won't be happy until I fully convert you! :]

  3. WEIRD IS WHAT I LIKE 8D
    Although, Naniwa Iroha Bushi was a bit Omgwtflol? I mean. mixing Enka and rap. nice idea >_>
    I have a fangirling object in Kanjani8. I need to find someone to fangirl in NEWS. I found that clip of those Shige and Koyama people doing those weird music video parodys with the lamp in the hotel. xD I LOL'D. Sooooo….
    * steals Shige and Koyama >:3*
    And the thing I love about Otakebi boy wao is Risakos badass voice. xD I can completely imagine her just pwning loads of evil yankee people. With Berryz backing her up going "DON'T MESS WITH H!P >:("
    *has weird imagination xD*

  4. NEWS as a whole is a fangirling object! XD
    I don't really have a fangirling object in Kanjani8. Aside from Ryo. XD Naniwa Iroha Bushi is exactly the song I was talking about! But that song shows why Subaru is in Kanjani8, his enka is pretty good. Osaka Obachan Rock is weird and I can't really get past the It's My Soul video. o_O I like their tamer songs. Kanfuu Fighting and Zukkoke Otokomichi, and Musekinin Hero.

    I loved those parodies.<3 And you can have Shige and Keii as long as I can have Ryo and Yamapi. :] XD

    Lolz. Risako could take out Reina! XD I loved Risako's voice too. She sounds a lot better singing like that.
