First up on the program is measuring their height: Sayu is 156.4 cm, Kamei is 155.7 cm, and Tanaka is 150.8 cm. Tanaka who's the shortest of the three has a great disappointed reaction and we can already see that she is quite the competitor.
Next is a test of hand strength: Using a handle like device which you squeeze Sayu scores 18.3 kg, Kamei scores 21.8 kg, and Tanaka who trying really hard scores 18.5 kg.
Ever stand on something to elevate you and then try to see how far you can bend and reach forward while keeping your knees straight? That's their next test and Sayu reaches 12.5 cm, Kamei who hurts herself a little scores 18.5 cm, while Tanaka shows them how it's done scoring 25.6 cm!
The next test is the vertical jump. Just before this clip you can see Tanaka asking Kamei how high she can jump and Kamei cutely replies by holding her hands apart. All 3 are shown simultaneously in a split screen with Sayu's vertical jump measuring 29 cm, Kamei's 31 cm, and Tanaka who's beginning to dominate reaches 39 cm. Even as early as this Tanaka's competitive fire was already evident!
Next is a bit of a strange test which requires the girls to lie on their stomach with their hands behind their back and then see how high they can raise their heads. Kamei reaches 27.2 cm, Sayu 20.3 cm, and Tanaka 29.9 cm.
The following is a test to see their breath strength. Using a device that you blow into Tanaka scores 2.10 l. Sayu goes next but has a little bit of trouble and gets a score that's almost non existent. lol. Tanaka & Kamei are cracking up in the background and Sayu is given another try and scores 1.88 l. Kamei scores the highest with 3.16 l.
Using a handle that you tug up on the girl's next test is to see their pulling strength. Sayu's strength is 23.5 kg, Kamei scores 33.0 kg, while Tanaka completely crushes them with a score of 50.0 kg!
Next up is an agility test involving the girl's footwork with the use of 3 lines on the court where they must use a stepping pattern to see how many they can complete in a set amount of time. Kamei scores 31, Tanaka 33, and Sayu surprises everyone by tying Tanaka with 33!
Mikitty is introduced next but she's in a different location from the other 3 members. This serves as an introduction of Mikitty into Momusu as she introduces herself to fans. Mikitty has been given some of the equipment that Kamei, Tanaka, and Sayu used in their tests but is performing the tests by herself without any help so she only does a few of them. Mikitty scores 26.0 kg in the hand strength test which puts her at the top in this category. She then scores 14.1 cm amid a flurry of "itai itai itai itai!" as she strains to reach the farthest that she can in the forward stretch test where she must keep her knees straight. The next and last test that Mikitty performs is the breath strength test where she scores 3.02 l. One thing to note is how different Mikitty's demeanor will seem here. For anyone who wasn't familiar with her when she was a solo artist before being absorbed into Momusu this will really show a more playful side of Mikitty which wasn't as visible while she was a member of Momusu. Mikitty is actually giddy during her self introduction. 🙂
It's now back to the other 3 members in their final test which is a 25 m swim in an indoor pool from one end to the other. Sayu's who is the weakest swimmer of the 3 finishes in 44.85 seconds. Kamei was most impressive in this test as she displays perfect form and looks to be training for the Olympics! :O Her time is 23.75 seconds! Tanaka who also displays pretty good form but nowhere near as good as Kamei's finishes with a time of 33.41 seconds. What does this all mean? If you were drowning you would want Kamei to save you! Not just because she'd get to you the fastest but she's also ultra cute!!! 😛
In between some of the tests there are also little interview/ profile segments with each of the members not including Mikitty though. Besides birthplace, blood type, favorite food, least favorite food, and the reason why they wanted to join Momusu they are also asked what they are most afraid of. Tanaka says it's "obake." (Ghosts) I can clearly understand that! Sayu says it's her school teacher. Teachers can be strict! But Kamei says that it's her father!! Papa's heart will be broken if he ever sees this DVD! LOL. Or perhaps he does rule their home with an iron fist! :O Kamei is soo sweet what could her father possibly be angry about?!! Maybe her room is messy. 😛
Hmmm…so what about the results of these tests? What have we learned about Gen. 6? Hmmm…I'm thinking that if they held a H!P Ultimate Fighting Champion Tournament you may want to put your money on Tanaka. lol. Just on pure determination I'd say that she'd be a definite favorite to win! I think that a Tanaka vs. Nono match up would result in the biggest fireworks of this imaginary tournament! Even after a child I think that Nono's competitiveness would still kick some butt! Hehe we already have Ayaya vs. Charmy with deadly yo yo's so why not. 😛 Kidding! But a H!P Ultimate Fighting Champion game on the Nintendo Wii system would sell like hot cakes!!! You know you'd want to play using your favorite H!P member. And after you acquire some special hidden codes you'll be able to play as any member of Berryz Koubou or C-ute! Just think of the possible match ups! Hey why isn't someone already trying to create this game?! It would be a hit! Anyway I'm just back from inventory at work on a Saturday night which is usually a day off so I'm a bit feisty and therefore having some strange video game ideas going through my head involving fighting. 😛
This DVD which was released on 3/22/03 runs approximately 17minutes and is a nice addition to your collection for anyone who's a big fan of Gen. 6. A bit odd at times but very entertaining overall. This is such a great view of Gen. 6 at the earliest of stages in their Momusu careers and I highly recommend anyone who's a fan of any of the primary 3 members in this generation to give it a viewing.
