And yet, another Hello! Station Viewer’s guide makes its way a couple of days late to the party. Judging by Chinami’s festive pose (above), I don’t think she minds. This week’s host is Tokunaga Chinami from Berryz Kobo. Other than being more tan than the other girls, Chinami has never done anything for me. Was it Chinami who said that Miyabi was her girlfriend? I think it was, and this was notable
First media we get is Berryz Kobo’s “Sayonara Usotsuki (Dance Shot Version)”. This dance shot illuminates the girls literally, since the regular PV is shot so that the girls are in darkness most of the time. Red is a good color for these girls. You know me by now, as long as they stick Miya in front, I’m OK. They look like they are dancing on that shiny new UF floor. This time, the crew have erected a square enclosure with some bits of scaffolding for extra flavor. The dancing seems more crisp than in past Berryz PV’s: this might be the sub-captain Miya effect.
The next clip is some live foodtage of C-ute performing “Dance de Bakoon“, affectionately known as the Bacon Dance.. As an added bonus, we get some of the eggs dancing along with inflatable guitar toys- I’m not making that up.
Next we get some introduction videos from some of the Hello! Pro Kenshuusei. I don’t have much to say about that…
Fukumura Mizuki, Iikubo Haruna, Sayashi Riho, Ishida Ayumi, and Kudo Haruka are currently acting in the stage play “Gogakuyuu”. The girls give short interviews about their experiences.
Live footage of Chinami and Maasa performing is presented as a bonus ending. After this duet is a Chinami solo. This footage is more of the single camera from the soundboard recordings. It’s a great way to see the whole stage, but there are no dramatic camera movements (by definition). It’s a good thing this is bonus footage!
