Berryz工房 VS. C-ute

While Momo clearly topped all 13 of her fellow members in BK and C-ute as she captured the majority of the fan vote in winning season one’s “Berikyuu Idol”, that has me wondering…does that translate into BK > C-ute…most likely an unfair assumption so…………there’s just one way to find out! ^-^ A Berryz Koubou vs. C-ute popularity battle!! And while BK has a head start in development, there’s really no doubt that both groups are greatly loved and adored amongst their many mutual fans but and with that thought in mind…what this is truly intended to be, is really a friendly competition…..but still there must be a slight edge between them I imagine amongst their many fans. 🙂 Both groups have had good songwriting and along the way have developed in leaps and bounds with some very poignant moments no doubt!…so perhaps there are numerous factors that come into play when deciding the possibly difficult task of choosing a decisive pick between them…personalities, charisma, performances, looks, and overall talent to name just a few variables that fans may ponder over before choosing…so with those and much more in mind, let’s get ready to rumble!!! 😛

And fittingly here’s the most recent BK vs. C-ute shashinshuu battle set that I received from Ohta. It kind of has the feeling of a slumber party in a sense…cute poses abound! ^-^ Will your overall favorite member(s) play a factor in your decision as those could be easily in both groups simultaneously or will the larger scope of members play out in your final decision?…

    Maimi is my favorite H!P Kid (Maasa comes a close second), but based on music, there are just far more Berryz songs I am a fan of than C-ute.

  3. To be honest, my favorite H!P Kid has probably always been Airi. From the very beginning, she seemed to have both the song-and-dance chops down with a lot of charisma and presence. I loved her in Aa! and was just waiting for her to make her mark.

    I do love both units, but if I have to choose one it would have to be C-ute, Risako, Momo and Chinami are all great but weighed up against the likes of Erika and Nakki, I'd have to go with C-ute.Aside from the members, it's C-ute's music that has really got me excitited lately, I do really love Berryz last few singles but nothing quite beats the exciement of a new C-ute release.

    It's C-ute by a sizable margin, both in these adorable photos, but during the Battle Concert itself. In segments where one single was set against another, C-ute won those confrontations because of the strength of the singles. In segments where both units combined, the C-ute singles were just better songs; Berryz has always caught the downer end of the Tsunku creative cycle. Berryz has more ballads (which I love), but they are no match for the hell-on-wheels freneticism of C-ute's killer numbers.
    And the final edge: Umeda and her crazy comedy sketches. Her oddball song (which I thought I caught being sung on DohhhUp! by a couple tiny kids about half Umeda's age or younger) also helped C-ute's overall scorecard. Berryz has no humor facet; C-ute has Umeda and D.J. Mai Mai. What comedy! And Mai Mai tends to lampoon Berryz and ridicule V-u-den. How irreverant and funny! Sorry, Berryz Kobo. You are great in a much different way than is C-ute.
    Now I've only made these observations with what has been posted here and on YouTube. These DVDs (both Berryz and C-ute versions) are on their way.

  10. There really are so many different things to consider and their overall music is definitely an important factor….hmmm for me it's really close but I really shouldn't reveal my choice just yet should I? 😛

  11. Ah but I hope it wasn't confused that these photos are in any way part of the vote decision here as I'm stressing more of a…versus comparison in their music, style, personalities, and overall charisma. ^-^ Awww they're not that bad are they….or are they?….I think it's a plaid sleepover paradise. 😛

  12. I was really blown away by Airiin too when I purchased their early pv DVD collection and saw her in "Ooki na ai de motenashite"…she just stands out so much along with Maimichan and I know their given vocal lines were really key there but it's true that you could just see how talented she was even back then. I love Aa's single too!! BK's big three!!…"Special Generation" is such a great song and the pv really heightens it so much. Dance choreography is so perfect too…and for me I love to watch Miya in this pv in particular, she just looks so dynamic and I love her dancing so much! It is really unfortunate that Megumi had to leave the group and had she still been there now we can only imagine how much greater they would be. I think you hit it right on!…she really did balance the forefront of the group so well and her unique vocals added so much. While watching older C-ute material I can't help but feel sad for her leaving.Each year there's hope of more shuffle groups or units and while UFA's been really busy creating special groups it's true that so many prominent members in BK and C-ute are in need of being a part of one soon…I can think of quite a few dream combinations right now..but I'll refrain from doing so otherwise my listing may get sort of out of control here! 😛

  13. Ah I knew you'd pick C-ute!….and it's only fitting as you've been a fan of theirs for longer?…or does my memory betray me? 😛 Hmm….I'm really on the fence when it comes to their overall body of music releases. Just so much that I love from both groups and that just makes it that much more difficult to choose…so in the end to break the "tie" in regards to their music it had to come down to the members' individual personalities, performances, etc… ^-^

  15. I can't wait to see the songs chosen for the battle concert when my DVDs arrive…hopefully soon! Hmm…I guess I see them musically as being a lot more even but of course this comes down to personal taste so there is no wrong or right here…just our individual preferences. ^-^ BK may have a slight edge with me though as I've loved them since they released "Piririto yukou!" which caught my attention so much that I ordered their complete discography up until then and luckily it was still early in their career…and have since loved everything from them. But C-ute really did impress me in the same manner when I first watched their indie release pvs!!! So amazing to see them come out with such vibrant energy and songs from the start too! ^-^ Hmmm…but really BK does have a fun and humorous side and I know that there's so much out there to see and listen to and for any fan it's quite overwhelming. But of course this is also a facet of personal taste too I think…as member's quirkiness, humor, and offbeat aspects may not appeal the same way to different individuals and fans may have watched different things along the way to this point. It's so great that you're getting both versions too…mine seemed to have been delayed. :O

  16. So much to consider with everyone's personality, vocals, charisma, etc…and of course their music put into the mix and I hope it wasn't confused that the photos here are relevant to the voting battle. The results are really close right now and both groups have had a slight lead at times…really too close to call so far. ^-^

    At the moment C-ute's music is impressing me so much that I'd stick my neck out and say that they're currently my favourite group within H!P. Which is a real shocker, obviously taking into consideration Morning Musume's back catalogue of songs their still my all time favourite, but at the moment I do really find myself getting really excited when I hear about new C-ute releases. To be honest I'm not to sure which I got into first Berryz or C-ute? I know there was a point when neither of them really appealed to me, but my opinion on both units have drastically changed since then.

  25. Wow that is saying so much about how much C-ute has captured your fandom! ^-^ There's so much H!P stuff coming out now that I'm just don't know what gets me most excited…I guess I'm excited all of the time :P. New Sayu shashinshuu…on the horizon too. 🙂 It made me so happy to see your fandom reach BK and C-ute…their powers were too much to resist! ^-^

    Lol, I have to agree with the excitement with all the releases, but with C-ute there's that something extra with not knowing which angle they'll take, look at their new single which I got in the post this morning…WOW!! The thought of a new Sayu book gets me very excited as you probably already know. I don't think there can be any denying both Berryz and C-ute's appeal, both amazing units that just keep getting better and better with each release, have you have a chance to watch the Berryz vs C-ute concert?…I was so amazed when I watched it, it definetly in the running in being one of my favourite H!P concerts.

  27. The styling is amazing on C-ute's new single!!! I had to gush about it too the other day here. 🙂 And both tracks are so outstanding and very different and l love how the title track takes on the challenge of merging together the sound of old Japan with the new. Just really amazing and Tsunku's coupling with song is just as awesome I think! I ended up getting both the BK and C-ute battle concert versions but haven't watched all of the extra content yet but the concert disc is awesome!! Every thing from the stage set ups, their outfits, the set list, the dancing! This concert definitely ranks up there with best of them in H!P's live catalog. I think both groups won the battle as I like to view this concert event as more of a celebration rather than an actual battle although it is billed as a 'battle.' ^-^ The fans win here! 🙂
