Risako Sugaya - Solo Image DVD

Risako's solo image DVD has been announced.
Release Date: 12/02/09
(Lol, I can guarntee to you guys that she will most definately get a PB along with it!)

I'm sure almost everyone has heard about this news already! but I'm still gonna post it in my blog anyway(LOL)!
I can't say I'm too surprised with this annoucement, because Risako WAS(and I think still is) losing quite a bit of weight, which kinda made me think she was gonna get one anyway(because like a couple of months before a PB H!P girls tend to lose a bit of weight for it).
I am happy about the news surprisingly though(because it's been like a year and a half since her last one, so I think it's time for a new one). I hope the PB will be as good as her last one and I also hope they make the solo DVD "entertaining"(because if it is boring than I'll probably just end up skipping through a couple of parts until I find and interesting part from it, lol)!

(...........FIT Risako >>>>>>> SLIGHTLY OVERWEIGHT Risako...........)

[PV] C- ute - EVERYDAY Zekkoucou!! (English Subtitled)

I'm not sure how accurate this english translation is! But I hope you guys enjoy it! And get a better understanding of the songs meaning!

English translation by: FALCONKinkami

℃-ute - EVERYDAY Zekkouchou!! (MUSIC JAPAN)

Lol, I'm hoping this doesn't get taken down too fast(If it does get taken down I may end up re-uploading it for everyone to view)!

I think this was a pretty good performance(especially since you can see it in HD). Everyone sounded pretty good(everyone except Maimi. she most definately can't sing! She needs to sing LESS and dance MORE. Sorry Maimi fans I'm just being honest)! Airi sounded almost like the recording! Airi is amazing!

I enjoyed everyone's dancing here! C-ute is a group full great dancers!

Why no solo's for Momo & Miya?

Here's a solo from my fav H!P & Berryz member.........

*Sighs* I wish Momoko(or Miyabi or maybe even Yurina) would get another solo like this in a Berryz Koubou concert..... But I know it's probably never gonna happen, Because for some reason the only person who seems to be able to get a solo in a concert or album is Risako(I don't have any problem's with Risako getting solo's in Berryz's concert's and albums, But it does sometimes annoy me a little)? And the fact that Risako is the only one from Berryz receiving solo's in album's AND concerts make's me wonder why Momoko and especially Miyabi don't get solo's. I mean I know that only usually the "most popular" members get solo's but then that still doesn't explain to me why Momoko and Miyabi don't get solo's in album's and concerts, Because I know they're popular enough(they along with Risako have ALWAYS been the lead singers for Berryz & they also get the most solo lines & screentime in pv's and are ALWAYS at the top of berryz koubou in the mixi ranking's & store sales ranking's). And Momoko even sometimes outsells Risako(in the store sales ranking's) and ranks the highest from Berryz in the Mixi ranking's.
C-ute's 2 lead singers(Airi and Maimi), both get solo's in concerts & album's(it isn't just one lead getting solo's). So why can't the other 2 lead singers from Berryz(Momo and Miya) get solo's along with Risako as well? Are they're voice's too nasally(Most if not all of H!P members have nasally voice's)? Or do they not show enough emotion when singing or something(Momo shows a lot of emotion when she is singing, and Miya does to sometimes so this definately couldn't be the reason why)?

I mean really! Why do those 2 not get solo's in concerts anymore(they're last solo's in a concert was back in 2007, 2 years ago....) and why have they NEVER recieved a solo in an album?

(Lol. During the whole time I was writing this post I was listening to Chisa's solo version of "Suna wo Kuma yoni..... NAMIDA", It's so relaxing!)

Berryz Koubou - Member Ranking

So I've decided to re-rank Berryz Koubou's members(since now I know most of the members a lot better than my previous ranking).

My previous ranking:

1. Momoko Tsugunaga
NO ONE should be surprised to see her at no.1! I STILL love her to death! And that's NEVER gonna change!!

I personally think that Momoko is 2nd best(if not the best) singer AND dancer from Berryz Koubou and deserves respect from everyone(There are quite a bit of Momo haters on Youtube)!!
I also think she's the next big thing too(if things with Airi don't work out so well). She's got the looks(a unique look), the talent(she can sing AND dance), and the personality(NOTHING is ever boring when she's in it).
Yes, I know that Momoko overdoes the "cute thing" sometimes and it can get kinda annoying, but she does it all for the Lolz.
Momo''s an entertaining & talented idol who's NOT going anywhere anytime soon(she's gonna be in the idol industry for a LONG time, I can tell).

2. Saki Shizimu

Saki is a GREAT captain & idol!
Her singing is not bad, She's actually one of the more stable singers from Berryz Koubou(but her dancing ALWAYS overshaddow's her singing abilites, so people tend to pay more attention to her dancing skills instead of her singing which is sad because Saki is a rather good singer and she NEVER gets any credit for that.... sad). And her dancing is great(I'm sure EVERYONE knows that already, LOL). I hope UFA pushes Saki to the front a bit some(like they're doing with Yurina & Mai right now), but I'm REALLY doubting that they will since I don't think Saki herself really wants to be pushed to the front.

3. Miyabi Natsuyaki

Miya moved up a spot(she was ranked 4th in my last ranking).
I actually personally liked Miyabi more when she was younger, because she was more entertaining & energetic (also cuter). She's all mature acting and what not now. Not that i'm trying to say that's a bad thing, it's just I sorta miss "playful" Miyabi(i'm refering to how Miyabi acted from 2004 to about 2006), "playful" Miyabi was A LOT more entertaining than "mature" Miyabi.... But anyways.... It's OBVIOUS that Miya is the best singer from Berryz Koubou. and her dancing is pretty good too(not the best but it's still pretty good), It's too bad she's been being pushed back a lot recently.

4. Maasa Sudou

Ah~ Maasa moved down a spot(to allow Miya to move up).Honestly I'm sorta losing interest in Maasa a little bit(I know sad right?), but I still like her, I just like Miyabi a little more than her now. I think Maasa is pretty(especially since she lost weight), and a pretty good dancer. I also think she deserves MORE attention and solo lines.

5. Risako Sugaya

Risako was ranked 7th in my last ranking(so she went up 2 spots).

My opinion about Risako hasn't changed all THAT much, I still think she's sorta overrated, and that she can't dance. But her singing has improved quite a bit recently(I ADMIT) and that makes me like her & respect a bit more than I did when I did my last Berryz Ranking. Sooo.... GOOD JOB Risako(LOL).

I HOPE Risa continue's to improve her singing(and maybe start improving her dancing too?), If she does continue improving.... than MAYBE just MAYBE she could take Maasa's 4th position. And also honestly, Once I get past the fact that she ain't the greatest performer(her singing, her dancing), then I start to actually like her a bit(truth be told, unlike Maimi I ACTUALLY think her personality is somewhat appealing, BUT not as appealing as Airi's or Momoko's). So I guess as of right now, I like Risako(LOL, this is strange)......

6. Yurina Kumai

I used to think Yurina was boring(I still kinda do think that....), but recently she seems more "interesting"(it's probably the recent push that UFA is giving her that makes her more "interesting" to me, LOL), and THAT'S why I didn't put her at no.7(I was going to but changed my mind at the last minute).

I personally think Yurina is REALLY pretty(one of the prettiest girl's from Berryz Koubou), and very talented(her dancing is not really all that good, but her singing has recently become better than it used to be).

7. Chinami Tokunaga

I feel REALLY BAD for putting Chinami at the bottom of my list! But someone had to go down their and unfortunately that someone had to be her(SORRY CHII!!).

I don't hate Chinami or dislike her. Chinami seems like a nice girl(who smiles A LOT, lol). I think Chinami is GORGEOUS(especially since she has let her hair grow out), and I also think she has the best legs & body from Berryz Koubou(LOL, sorry I just had to get that out). Her singing isn't the best & neither is her dancing(but she's OK).

Well... that's it guys! I won't be posting another member ranking for Berryz til....... probably next year.....

Airi Suzuki - Natsu DOKI Lipstick (Subtitled)

Loved Airi's version of Natsu Dokii Lipstick! It was sooooo..... NICE AND CLEAR(LOL)! Even if this wasn't as "energetic" as Maimi's version I still think Airi did a wonderful job! But of course Maimi still owns this song(since IT IS her solo after all). But still... GOOD JOB AIRI!

Oh and btw, wasn't subbed by me but by:

[PV] Buono! - MY BOY (Close Up Ver.) (Subtitled)

I just found this on Youtube! I think it's subtitled quite nicely! And I think everyone should enjoy this subtitled version of Buono's close up version for MY BOY until H!F(a.k.a. Hello-Fansubs) releases their subs for it!

This is OF COURSE not subbed by me but by this nice Youtube user:
