Momusu vs. Berryz Koubou…it was only a matter of time!

Having a bit of a lazy Sunday and while filing some UFA photos in albums I realized that I haven’t yet scanned these 2 promotional sets which Paul generously found for me while on his trip to Japan earlier this year. With the current Berryz Kamen vs. C-utie Rangers concert tour currently in progress it got me thinking about a potential (however unlikely) Momusu vs. Berryz Koubou battle while looking through these photographs as wacky as that may sound! 😛 For me personally Momusu and Berryz Koubou are much closer in the “suki” category as they’ve reached an equal place in my heart and in my J-Pop fandom so as a curious mind works…I’m really curious to know what fellow Hello! Project fans think as well. So this little poll asks the “simple” question…which group do you love more? If you’re like me this question isn’t a “simple” one as it poses a very difficult choice to make but I really do imagine that I’m in the minority here as I think that many fellow fans of both groups have a solid taking on which group they adore and love more. This little poll will end on May 25th at midnight giving 3 weeks for the results. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu! ^-^

モーニング娘。vs. Berryz工房

And coming soon will be the first season of “Berikyu! Idol”…here’s a little preview!……………

…………..”That was absolutely ghaaasssstlllllllly!” :O Don’t miss it as you wouldn’t want your favorite to not make the final 2! ^-^ I’m really serious here!…there will be a “Berikyu! Idol” showdown! ^-^

  11. Ah you sound just like me! It's really a "coin toss" for me in separating Momusu and Berryz Koubou as I adore both so much and much the same. Berryz Koubou has just grown on me so much over time and eventually I realized that they were equal! 🙂

  12. I loved reading your reasoning and I agree with what you've said! Back in February of '98 Momusu changed my entire J-Pop world and no group can ever replace or match this ever. I'm not sure if you remember me doing a Momusu/Berryz Koubou favorite member ranking here awhile ago where I attempted to merge the two groups together and rank them based on individual members rather than groups but that's when I first began realizing that I actually love and adore both groups nearly equally in terms of their members. And from there it has transpired for me to the point where I'm just as excited about receiving a new BK release as I am a new Momusu one! I know I'm way in the minority here having such a difficult time separating the two groups and you probably think I'm wacky! 😛 Hmm…but it's just become so true with me and even more so recently. Okay enough babbling! 😛 Momusu is definitely more versatile of a group as you've stated and I couldn't agree more! And I totally agree and also touched upon commenting on the premature talk of Momusu's demise and fears stemming from their previous single "Mikan"'s sales (a single that I really love and think is extremely catchy!! ^-^) in a recent post about "Resonant Blue." One of their best singles ever in every aspect. ^-^ I could go on and on here but it's already written in that post and I don't want to cause you to fall asleep! 😛 It's wonderful how you relate to the groups in relative terms of age and I've never thought of this from that aspect and you make a great point! Momusu looks to have a landslide victory in place and you're so right that in time this battle may play out closer for many other fans as well. I'm just in a strange place I guess…loving Momusu as a much more prominent group with deeper roots in me and yet at the same time loving BK in an almost equal fashion. Maybe I need help! 😛

    My vote went to Morning Musume, although I like Berryz I'm still finding it hard to get as attached to the girls within the unit as I do with Morning Musume. If C-ute were thrown into the mix then the choice would have been a lot harder, overall Morning Musume is my favourite group, but "at this very moment in time" I find myself edging towards C-ute.I still need to post about some of the stuff I bought whilst I was out in Japan, lol, there needs to be a break in the H!P releases so I can catch up.

    I voted for Momusu. If not for anything else then just for the habit of thinking of Momusu as my favourite group. I love Berryz though… Maybe they're a little bit too young for me too. But I LOVE their music! I bet Berryz has got the best B-sides of all groups in H!P.

  18. Hmm…now I'm curious to know how C-ute would match up against Momusu! It's so true Momusu will always be the most important and beloved group for me as well as they're one of the very few groups that I've known since their debut and how they changed the entire world of J-Pop for me as well!…that being said, Berryz Koubou's members are so equally endearing for me right now and have been for some time now so it still came down to a coin flip to decide so to speak! The results so far are what I expected but I still really want to see where the votes for each group come from and whether BK can close the gap a bit…hmm..but it really doesn't look like it though as they're falling further and further behind by the hour. Ah there's no break in sight for H!P releases which is both amazing and also overwhelming at times but in a good way! ^-^

  19. Andra I wish I had as easy a time choosing! Momusu's dominance in the poll was expected but just how large the margin is is a bit eye opening! I totally agree that BK has some of the greatest B-sides too! 🙂 I'm thinking too that perhaps the timing of this poll favors Momusu even more as it's posed as "this very moment…" and "Resonant Blue" is one of Momusu's and H!P's greatest singles ever I think in just about every aspect. ^-^ "Dschinghis Khan" too is a great single…hmm…I must not start over analyzing! 😛

    I have a question, some of the photos I recieve have Kodak and one has Fuji on the back. I'm thinking these are fake. The two large LinLin photos, the JunJun member T-shirt photo, and some of my Megumi ones.

  21. Strawberrie sorry for my late reply! 😛 I've been going through all of my UFA photos and typically what I find is that the ones sold directly from their official site have no indication on the back of what kind of photo paper was used…however many of those sold at the individual H!P store locations do have Kodak written on the back but not all of them which is a bit strange. But as long as you purchased them directly from a H!P related outlet or online store there shouldn't be a problem with fakes. With auctions you really can't tell I guess but I'd like to think that a seller wouldn't be making fake photos…that'd be really sad on their part. I don't have any UFA photos marked with Fuji on the back though.
