Berryz Koubou Single Cover Critiques: Part 2

–Part 2–

11. Waracchaou yo BOYFRIEND – I would have liked this cover so much more if they had used the background from the PV. (>_<*) As it is, it’s yet another boring Berryz cover. … Did anyone else notice that Momo doesn’t seem to age?!

12. Munasawagi Scarlet – It’s okay, but… how is it relevant? I like the sparkles and the lettering, but that’s not a very good picture of Chinami, and I always have to check twice to make sure that that’s Captain’s arm. In short, it’s kind of awkward-looking.

13. VERY BEAUTY – This one’s a little better; I like the background and lettering, and Risako looks pretty. However, something about Maasa scares me, and the thing on Captain’s head is just confusing.
14. Kokuhaku no Funsui Hiroba – … The same color scheme as the last single? You think they could mix it up a little. At least it’s not blue again. The dresses are kind of cute, but it’s not very flattering on Risako.

15. Tsukiatteru no ni Kataomoi – Whyyyy so boring?! Again?! Here’s a change for you; Momo doesn’t look so great in this one. Neither does Captain. *sad face* But Risako does, and so does Maasa! Yay! She finally doesn’t get the short end of the stick!

16. Dschinghis Khan – Woohoo! Green always gets points from me! I don’t like how the skirts are gathered at the bottom, but otherwise, this cover is actually okay! It’s very clean and simple.

17. Yuke Yuke Monkey Dance – Isn’t that the happiest pink you’ve ever seen? And I’m saying this as not-a-very-big fan of pink. Some of the girls’ outfits make me shudder, but I’m so distracted by the happy pink background that I don’t really notice. Plus, look! More stars!

18. MADAYADE – NOOOO! What is this?! Their order doesn’t make sense to me, considering heights; even though you can see all of the girls, it’s just not very visually appealing. Also, Momoko scares me here. Not only does it look like she doesn’t have a neck, it looks like she’s about to attack the camera person. O__O

19. Dakishimete Dakishimete – Another fairly boring cover; not much to say about this one, except that I do not approve of Maasa’s hairstyle. Maybe it’s the combination with the hat, or the fact that all of her hair is on one side of her face. Meh.

20. Seishun Bus Guide/Rival – Eh? It feels like I just looked at this… maybe because it’s so similar to Dakishimete Dakishimete’s cover. Anyway, everyone looks good here, except Captain’s hair is fluffed a bit too much, and Momo’s wearing one of those irritating tiny hats. Besides that… *sigh* boring again.

I seriously think Berryz should have more covers like Koi no Jubaku, or Yuke Yuke Monkey Dance, or even Happiness ~Koufuku Kangei!~ . At least get a few bright colors in there! Here’s hoping the cover for their 21st single is awesome!
