The HQ covers for BeriKyuu’s Chou Happy Song has been released.
Limited A, B and the regular edition features a “new” cover while the Limited C and D uses the cover from Berryz and C-ute’s latest album with slight editing. I didn’t get a chance to look over the LQ covers so I thought the covers were going to be a quick copy and paste but I’m quite surprised that wasn’t the case.
The Limited A edition is done like a comic and the design is really similar to the VTR they used at their last joint concert together. I find this cover really random and silly, but it works. Airi with the gas pump is probably one of the funniest and cutest things. They also put the words “danger” near that scene and I just think it’s hilarious. They put a lot of random words like “skirt…” and “cream chance” but I think it fits with the silliness.
The only thing I would’ve changed is the size of some of the pictures. I know this isn’t the actual size of the release and the final product will be different but you can barely see some of the member’s faces. I hope the actual cover itself won’t show them all blurry because this is one of my favorites.
Limited B features all the members in different tetris shaped pieces. This cover isn’t as colorful as Limited A but I like that everyone is showcased equally. Some pictures are slightly larger than others but everyone can be seen and there’s nothing obstructing anyone.
Limited C and D
Like I mentioned earlier Limited C and D isn’t that all that new since it’s just a slight edit of their previous album covers. Each cover features a large group picture and then a smaller picture of the other members either sitting or standing on colored blocks. Everything done in one cover is done oppositely in the other and I like that they did the covers this way because it represents the song.
The regular edition is divided into 16 different blocks with each member taking a block for herself. The other blocks feature a poka dot design and the song’s title. They place the words “happy”, “C-ute” and “Berryz” 4 times on the cover and when I look at the words it reminds me of the fans chanting. This cover would’ve been fine without all the extra words and letters but none of it hurts so its still good.
Everyone looks really amazing on this cover and there’s not much to the picture but Yurina, Maimi, Risako, Nakky, Chinami and Captain really stand out for me.
Now that the HQ covers have been released hopefully everyone can start deciding which editions to purchase since all the info about this release is now available. I hope everyone can help support and reserve a copy!
The release date is set for 6/20.
