@ Rickker708 > you are so lucky to be living so near Sakura-Con. I'm still not 100% sure if I can afford to go to Seatle although Sakura-Con has already approved my press pass to the event.
Finances are too tight right now, would love to get one but right now can barely afford needs, let alone wants. The only reason I can see the girls @ Sakura-con is its in my back yard and was planning to goto the con anyway.
love the new song and the video is good too.
Only detractor is the band. Really, what happened to the ladys we've seen before? Were they from the old label? Do we really need to se a 10 year old drummer?
Damn Miya looks amazing.
Momo, Captain, Yurina and now Rii... i think it's about time for Miya's new PB or at least on of those specials DVD's...
Risako looks lovely [as you said] here, but i wonder why they put that "Random" guitar tune instead of some Berryz instrumentals... or something IDK... just saying...
Yume miru 15sai is my favorite S/mileage's single, there's only something missing in the Video to be Perfect... Kanon.
But i guess there's no room for her or any other girl in Chisato's straight way to fame...
I voted for #5 because "Punk Berryz" is so out of character for them, and yet they still pull it off beautifully. Who needs all the drama of the K-Pop scene anyway when H!P can deliver "J-Girlz with Attitude" with a simple costume change?
@Mewtwo1928: I concur about the omission of the Otakebi Boy WAO! outfits, and must therefore consider #9 "Shining Red" as a stand-in for my second choice.
In general, it is nice to see costuming moving the girls away from nearly-identical outfits and toward more-individualized gear at approximately the same pace as the idols themselves are moving away from being girls and toward being adult women.
Also, the jumpsuits in #2 still do not quite work for me; I cannot remember who said it, but I agree that those things always make any artist wearing one look like she is on work release from some sort of idol jail. (And the striped shirts only add to the chain-gang effect.)
I had to go with th "school" uniforms.... because there is no Otakebi Boy WAO! choice...
