PRIDE

Natsuyaki Miyabi (夏焼雅).

Rough translation for her name is Summer Burning Elegance. Wikipedia said:
Miyabi (雅) is one of the traditional Japanese aesthetic ideals, though not as prevalent as Iki or Wabi-sabi. In modern Japanese, the word is usually translated as “elegance,” “refinement,” or “courtliness”.
But from my point of view, she doesn’t posses any elegancy at all.

She known as one of Berryz main vocal after Risako. She always try to dominate the groups in every chance, bossing around, and even tries bully the other member. She don’t give any mercy to the younger member. Maybe she looks nice but, if we look closer, it’s like just she said “Come and have fun with me, but follow my orders and don’t even try to reject or you’ll suffer”. For the older member, only one person that she recognize as worthy to respect, Saki-chan. Or maybe too respectful to her as we can see Miya always want to side-by-side with captain anytime.

She also has a leadership sign with her attitude like that. Before Momo was choosen as Buono! leader, many people believe that Miya was the leader of the group since she always bossing around in Buono. And of course, i think Miya were recognized this opportunity too. She leads Buono! movement until Kiss Kiss Kiss single. And in this period, Miya’s performance in many event and concert was in maximum. In Berryz vs C-ute Battle Concert, she is one of the most energetic singer and dancer till the end.

Thanks to unconfirmed scandal issue with one of JE member last year. Her popularity sky dived to the worst. Her solo lines in the next Berryz and Buono! releases were reduced dramatically. The results, now she didn’t perform seriously in many live event except for the song she had enough fair lines and she think she can dominate the whole performance. Her worst performances were with “co.no.michi” song. You can judge by yourself that everytime she performed this song she wouldn’t take it seriously.

If you watch again Hybrid Punch concert, you’ll see the difference her performance quality for each song. For a sample, in the climax for this concert, Kiss Kiss Kiss, Momo and Airi were struggle to keep their voice at their best because they’re already too tired. But, Miya is different. Since this is the only Buono! single that she most dominated (if performed together), somehow we can see her true ability for keeping her vocal stability even in exhausted condition just like in the past when she owned the Special Generation in every performance.

My conclusion is, the reason behind her behavior is PRIDE. Her pride feeling is the highest amongst any ex-Hello Pro Kids members. And this pride sometimes lead her to become very cold to the others because she will feel higher than the rest.

Dakishimete² Dance Review: Who is The Best Dancer in Berryz?

berryz-koubou-dakishimete-dakishimetedance-shot00030223-18-22

Dakishimete Dakishimete music clip, dance shot version already available at Single V DVD. Dakishimete² dance can be categorized in ‘hard’ difficulty level which has fast hand & body movement, fast footwork, and cross changing position (and each of them must did it without see the others). And once more they dance skill are truly tested in this clip.

Here is my full review about each member and rank them, who is the best. I tried my best to be objective enough while write this. The 1st and 2nd position is really hard to decide and i’m sorry if you dissapointed with the result.

1. Miyabi
Why? Because her dance is nearly flawless. She has the balance of High-King group, fast reflex, straight movement, and almost no mistakes. But, she is lack of expressions and she thinked that her hot pants is very annoying. You can see clearly that she didn’t let her legs spreading open wide in this dance shot. But she can make an improvement with that and make her dance looks more feminine.

2. Saki
The captain of the berry and one of the High-King member. Her dance skill is very good. Same as miya her dance is nearly flawless too except her reflex is a lil bit slower than miya. I didn’t know if her outfit is the cause of these, because moving fast in jeans is harder than hot pants. And somehow… is her legs isn’t straight? Beside of that her expressions is better than Miya.

3. Momoko
A trully energetic dancer. She is like koharu, an over powered dancer. Good balance but still aren’t that better than miya and saki. Her reflex is fast and i can say better than saki in this dance shot. But, the result of over powered dancing stregth plus fast reflex is she did too many useless movement. And the worst is no expressions at all in her dance except when her rule is come (you know, in the time you must did it in front of camera like smilling, serious face, sad face, etc.)

from this point, each member is nearly out of breath / breathing heavily during dance.

4. Chinami
This genki member surely can make the dance more life. Hold the best expressions for entire members. But, she didn’t put too much efforts on her footwork and her footwork is slow. Beside of that she can did every axis movement perfectly.

5. Yurina
Very tall indeed. With her height she most suited at the axis of the formation. Her movement is good. But,i think she tried to be same as the other members, i mean in height like: spreading her legs widely and bend her body too far to the front.

6. Maasa
In this dance, we can see maasa is already much more slender than before. Her movement is still as heavy as before. I think her reflex didn’t get better even with slender body, but she tried at her best to match with others. The best thing is her neck is very flexible and she used it to make unusual head movement that make her entire upper body movement more flexible.

7. Risako
The last position? Yeah, because her movement is very slow, not reflexive enough and she reduced her movement just for keep up hers with the others. She only can gain her speed during stand still. What make her so gorgeous is her bouncing boobs. And sure the director is aiming for this (you can see them zoomed in normal version of the music clip)

yurina: “Who care” 

berryz-koubou-dakishimete-dakishimetedance-shot00295023-24-101Momo, please put some expressions on your face!
Momo: “This is boring. This dance aren’t dificult enough for me!” 

berryz-koubou-dakishimete-dakishimetedance-shot00365223-25-29Miya: “Hey captain, now i’m flying higher than joo” 
Maasa: “I’m higher than captain too, but now there is a peach ass in front of me”
Momo: “Fuck joo all! I don’t care what happened to joo, coz i’m the most popular berryz right now”
