Sugaya Risako’s dark rival character in the anime Gokujou!! Mecha Mote Iinchou called Himuro Ibu will have a solo CD debut along with her “rival” Kitagawa Mimi (Ogawa Mana) who will also release a new single.
For those who haven’t had a chance to see Risako act out her role, here is a small clip of her in character:

This is a very clever idea to bring the “rivalry” from the anime to life since they will be simultaneously releasing singles in a “battle for girl power”, and even though we have no more information as of right now I am excited to see if they will perform the songs in character.
The two “rivals”- Himuro Ibu (Sugaya Risako) and Kitagawa Mimi (Ogawa Mana)
Risako definitely has the vocal skills for a solo single, but even though I am more familiar with Risako I am looking forward to listening to Mana’s single as well since I don’t really know that much about her.
This will be Risako’s solo debut as well as the first solo release from a Berryz Koubou member (if I remember correctly) so even though we don’t know much right know I am still excited to see how the song will sound and how the cover will look.
For now there isn’t much information apart from the preliminary announcement so a release date, tracklist, and more information should be released sometime soon in the coming weeks.
