Japanese are so emotional and I think there’s that kind of sentimentality also in me. When I see girls crying on my TV screen also I start sobbing and in the deepest outburst of feelings I can’t avoid tears appearing in my eyes.
This happens almost every time I watch these graduation concerts and other touching stuff. Regardless how many times I see those documents I just start sobbing with the girls. “You are such a sentimental fool”, said my friend when we were watching Zone’s final concert. Well, I have never denied it.
Now I have seen Hello!Project 2006 Summer final concert a couple of times. What makes this dvd’s watching experience more emotionally than any other’s is of course the fact that it was also Konkon’s graduation, her last appearance evar with MM/H!P. Needless to say what happens to my eyes when concert hits to it’s climax.
I don’t know if it’s because of Konkon but I find this dvd one of the best H!P concert recordings evar. You should notice that I don’t say it’s da best one, because we are missing so many outstanding H!P artists such as Maki, Aya, Nacchi, Miyabi, Aibon & Nono and so on. But as I said, it has a certain “sacred” place in my dvd shelf.
And what about concert itself? There are MM, Biyuuden, Berryz, C~ute, H!P Eggs and Marippe & Makoto as CMs. Also Nono with crutches makes a brief appearance. They blend groups and songs so watonly! Like Risa & Eri singing Country Musume’s Hajimete no Happy Birthday or Hitomi & others performing Berryz Special Generation. Berryz by themselves are doing Boyfirend (Miyabi absent from this concert) and Koha sings Koi Kana. Just wondering if others performing Berryz songs wakes non-Berryz-fans up to realize that also Berries have cool & catchy songs.
Then there is this long graduation segment with lot of trembling voices and wet cheeks. Risa is always been almost hysteric weeper but this time she manages to avoid total collapse. Farewells are hard naturally to all 5th gen members but also 6th gen is quite out-of-balance. Bravest ones are of course leader Hitomi & sub-leader Miki, although also they have their moments.
Besides concert this dvd has also some bomus tracks. There’s backstage clips and then whole Berryz (including Miyabi) performing Boyfriend & Nono doing Maki’s Uwasa no Sexy Guy!
