Berryz 2011 Spring Concert awesomeness

In case you haven't noticed, I've been in a Berryz mood as of late, especially with Airi dropping out of my #1 ranking for the first time in a year (Captain now holds that spot).

On the 3rd, Berryz celebrated their 7 year anniversary and also kicked off their 2011 Spring concert tour.

The setlist is as follows (thanks to MaikuBano @ H!O for the romaji translations)

1. Heroine ni Narou ka!
2. Special Generation
3. HAPPY! Stand Up
4. Joshikai The Night (New song)
5. Onna no Pride (New song)
6. Tsukiatteru no ni Kataomoi
7. Munasawagi Scarlet (Miyabi + Risako)
8. Sakura wa Raku Sa (Momoko, Chinami w/ Captain solo dance)
9. Grand Demo Rouka Demo Medatsu Kimi (Maasa, Yurina)
Whose the heroine of the day? Heroine corner. 
10. Darling, I LOVE YOU (It's preformed by everyone except who was chosen to be the heroine of the day)
Heroine of the day, heroine corner again. The chosen Heroine does their favorite thing for 3 minutes.
11. BOMB BOMB JUMP (New song)
13. Kokuhaku no Funsui Hiroba
14. Jiriri Kiteru
15. Shinning Power
16. Icchoume Rock! (New song)
17. Otakebi Boy WAO!
18. 7 Year Anniversary Medley: Koi wa Hippari da ko -> Berryz Kobo Koushinkyoku -> Maji Natsu Sugiru -> Sayounara Hageshiki Koi -> Yume wo Hitotsubu ~Berryz Kamen Ending Theme~ -> Kimi no Tomodachi - Magical Future
19. Girls' Time (New song)

As you can see, 5 new songs were performed. I haven't found a concert rip, but a radio rip of the last song, Girls Time, has appeared (thanks to afa4004 for the original mp3).

Overall the setlist looks great. It will be nice to finally see some of my favorite classic Berryz sung again like Munasawagi and Kokuhaku. It's a bonus that Munasawagi is a Risako/Miya duet. And another Captain solo dance? Those are always epic!

And finally onto the goods list.

There are some pretty nice things on there (and I usually don't care much for goods). For example, the group shirt looks nice from afar:

Then there is the Captain uchiwa that I wouldn't mind owning.

Speaking of Captain, her 2L photoset looks stunning.

Actually everyone's 2L set looks amazing.

Then there is some sort of news press name badge (it fits in with the name of this concert, "Shuukan Berryz Times" or "Weekly Berryz Times" - like a newspaper/magazine).

It wouldn't be a H!P concert without microfiber towels. Do want!

The last piece of merchandise that is worth mentioning is Berryz's 7th anniversary T-shirt.

Hopefully HSU will stock some of this stuff!

And last but not least here are a couple of what I'm guessing are pin-ups from the concert.

That solo Captain shot is the definition of HOT.

If you want to hear the rest of the new songs, you can pre-order Berryz's new album from HelloStoreUSA. HSU is an American H!P online store and they are stocking the official USA release of the album meaning it's significantly cheaper to buy it from HSU ($16 + shipping) vs CDJapan or any other Japanese website (3000yen/$35 + shipping).


  1. I want a MAASA shirt (that you didn't post a picture of).

  2. I agree actually. I looove blue, the shirt doesn't look like a font trainwreck, and Maasa is awesome.

  3. the Heroine setlist part looks awesome.....want to see.....

    oh and captain solo shot is definitely hot lol

  4. Oh, god. This is so mouth-watering.
