C-ute - Member Ranking (Part 2)

It's been a while since I've done this....

1) Airi Suzuki

Everyone seems to be seems to be really hating on her a lot latelt ever since C-ute's SHOCK came out. I do undertsand why people are hating on her, but I don't approve of it.
Partly why every none-Airi fan is hating on her is because she's being a bit overexposed right now. But one good thing about her overexposure is that at least she SORTA deserves it. I mean I think she has the best vocal control from the H!P Kids and overall seems like a nice, down to earth peron. So.... I hope the whole "It's OK to hate on Airi" attitude that I see from other h!P fans dies down.. Airi's being hated more than Berryz Koubou's Risako Sugaya(The hate magnet!)!

2) Saki Nakijima
I was at first gonna put put her as my no.1 in C-ute until I realized that I really do pay more attention to Airi and like her a bit more too!

I have always thought that Nakky was pretty cute, but when her first photobook previews released my thoughts on her looks went from cute to HOT and GORGEOUS! Nakky really does have the best figure in C-ute(Yajima comes in a close 2nd!)! But it wasn't just her loooks that pulled me in, it was her personality and a certain performance from her I saw as well!
Nakky's performance in Pucchimoni V was really impressive! She sung surprisingly very well in it and the attention was totally on her(because Mai was sick from the performance and Nakky had to sing her own lines plus Mai's as well!)!! And I also LOVE her dancing! She does the dance steps so well! ^_^

3) Chisato Okai
Her personality is easily one of the most entertaining in C-ute's! She was REALLY funny in C-ute's Alo-Hello, I found myself paying attention to her the most in it! And I was really impressed with singing in her lastest solo events! I hope Tsunku let's her sing a solo in a C-ute concert(though I am REALLY doubtful! XD)!! I find myself going back and forth between Chisa and Airi when it comes to vocals! I can't choose who's vocals I like the better! XD

4) Maimi Yajima

Maimi was originally ranked 5th in C-ute, but after hearing her new solo from C-ute's new album "Lonely Girl's night", I feel honestly rather impressed with her! ^_^ It's something different from what Maimi would usually sing and she actually sounds rather nice singing it in the recording(of course... as soon as she sings it live, I'm probably gonna start disliking her singing again.)! And for the record... I'm still not a fan of Yajima's personality! C-ute's Alo-Hello did nothing for me with her! :P :P :P

5) Mai Hagiwara

Well... Someone had to be last(unfortunately)...
I don't dislike or hate Mai-chan(I actually rather like her!), but her being C-ute's youngest member doesn't really appeal to me much... She is a rather decent singer though, and when she's with Chisato, she's always at her funniest! : )

LOL. So, I guess this means I like ALL C-ute members(for now!)!! XD

If you want, you can voice your opinions on my ranking and the members in the comment area. I really do like hearing others opinions(Sometimes...)! ^_^

C-ute - Shigatsu Sengen FULL PV

So here we finally get the full PV for C-ute's Shigatsu Sengen!!


I don't really have a problem with the song.. I think overall.. The song is OK. It's not the most amazing song ever, but it ain't horrible, it's just not really upbeat is all(most people just don't like the song because it's not upbeat!), but I do have a problem with the setting of the PV.. I don't like it.. It looks like they filmed it in Tsunku's basement or something. XD UFA could have done A LOT better than that! But other than that, I guess I think it's alright! And I also think the girls ALL look GORGEOUS in their close up's! Their smile's look rather genuine! ^_^ They make me feel a bit better about the horrible setting of the PV.

Berryz Koubou - 2009 Aki ~Medachitai!!~ Concert Review

I'm just gonna do a small review on some(not all!) of the performances from Berryz Koubou's 2009 Aki ~Medachitai Concert tour!!

Momoko Tsugunaga - VERY BEAUTY:

As a Momo fan...
I am very very happy to see Momo get a solo in this concert, especially since the solo is VERY BEAUTY(A really hard song to sing!!)!! :) Sure VERY BEAUTY may not have been the best song for her voice(It probably would have suited Miyabi Natsuyaki's voice better!), but I'm happy that Tsunku(or whoever the hell let her sing this song solo) let her sing this! ^^

Momoko's voice is somewhat shaky at some parts, and she sings this with a high pitched voice(unlike in her Jiriri Kiteru solo), but overall this is a good performance!! I couldn't be more proud of her than I already am!! : ) I feel like a proud mother!!! XD

Maasa, Miyabi, Chinami - Kokuhaki no Funsui Hirobi:

Chinami's vocals have improved, she put a more serious tone into her singing and she does the facial expressions well! <3
Maasa got main vocals(in other words Risako's parts!! xD)! I noticed she had some problems with her parts(she was rather out of tune at 1:41 to 1:57), but she seems so into the song til... I don't care!! XD She was really trying, and I like that! ^^
Miyabi's voice is so beautiful!! <3 She sounds pretty good as usual! ^^

Berryz Koubou - Dschinghis Khan (Beatboxing Ver.):

The beatboxing was AWESOME!!! XD
Risako was obviously leading this performance(it sounds like a Risako solo to me!! xD)!!
I couldn't help but notice that Rii was having a bit of problems with her parts(I'm sure you all noticed this! XD). I think this song is a bit too.... high for Risako? She always tends to sing songs better when she singing with a lower pitch! But even though Risako had some problems, I still think she did a pretty decent job! I think she had a lot of "power" in her singing! ^^

Chinami Tokunaga - Ohiru no Kyukei Jikan:

I'm surprised Chii actually got a solo to sing in a concert!!
I never thought it'd ever happen! lol xD

Chinami's singing was... CUTE, but lol... Perhaps she should just stick to doing duet's with Kumai-chan(I'm sorry, please don't bash me!!)? XD
While it was nice to see Chii solo... This solo performance kinda convices me more and more that she really is the weakest vocally in Berryz... *hides*
But.. at least she looked cute, which is a plus for me!! xD <3

I'll probably review more of the performances tomorrow!!
And feel free to express your opinions on the performances I've mentioned above in the comment area!!!!

Risako VS Miyabi VS Chinami

Who do you think in YOUR OPINION sang the "Sore ga onna yo" line the best? Miyabi, Risako, or Chinami?

In my opinion, I think Risako did!! ^^
1. Risako - Perfect
2. Miyabi - Has short break in the middle
3. Chinami - Scratchy a bit at the beginning

Morning Musume - Onna Ga Medatte Naze Ikenai [PV] (English Subbed)

Love the song!! ^^ I still kinda like KP better than this though(Please don't bash me xD)!! *whistles* But still nice song!! and a rather nicely made pv!! : )

The lyrics are pretty "interesting" too!! ^^
(Btw, The English translation and subs are by HakuKinKuroThee3rd!!)
