Kurenai no Kisetsu is another midtempo song, much with the style of Biyuuden. The beginning has a nice instrumental intro, which almost sounds royal, with Biyuuden being the elegant princesses in a grand castle. The royalty carries through the whole song, with the chimes, bells, and other elegant instruments. This song also has a lot of echoing of the lyrics.

Within the lyrics and singing, there also is a little bit of a mysterious feeling, with some good “haaa ha ha waaa haa” background vocals, which always adds to the fun. The girls voices are very good and soothing, and towards the end of the choruses, there’s a very good, soothing harmony of their voices.

Rating: ★★★½☆

Naishin Kyaa Kyaa da wa! is an upbeat, fun-loving song. It puts a smile on my face, especially the chorus part. Having a bad day? Well then, try listening to this song! (also, I hope you get better!)

Rating: ★★★★☆

Biyuuden’s 1st Album, titled SWEET ROOM NUMBER 1, is going to be released on October 26th, so get ready for even more Biyuuden coming your way!

Overall Rating: ★★★½☆

  1. Biyuuden I'd like to share with you a semi-new group in the Hello! Project: Biyuuden. Biyuuden is made up of 3 girls: Rika Ishikawa, Erika Miyoshi, and Yui Okada. Rika is a former Morning Musume member, while Erika was chosen in a 2003 Hello! Project audition, and Yui was one of the many girls that advanced in the Hello! Project "Egg" Audition.........

  3. Issai Gassai Anata ni A-GE-RU Biyuuden has released a new single on May 10th, titled Issai Gassai Anata ni A-GE-RU. This is definitely not your ordinary Biyuuden single: It's an upbeat, cutesy pop song, not one of their usual mid-tempo mature songs. Will this style work for them? Let's see!......
  4. ROMANS ROMANS, pronounces "romance", is a one-shot group of the Hello! Project, consisiting of Rika Ishikawa and Mari Yaguchi (both former Morning Musume members), Mai Satoda of Country Musume, Hitomi Saitou of Melon Kinenbi, and Ayaka of Coconuts Musume. Their single was titled SEXY NIGHT ~Wasurerarenai Kare~ and was a great R&B and hip hop song. Take a look, you'll love them!......
  5. Waracchaou yo BOYFRIEND Berryz Koubou is back with their 11th single, Waracchaou yo BOYFRIEND, which was released on August 2nd. Waracchaou yo BOYFRIEND is a very fun beach song, resembling that of American 50's/60's pop rock. It's a great style for Berryz Koubou that I wouldn't mind seeing in the future. Take a look!......

I think Kurenai no Kisetsu is quite boring. I don’t really enjoy the “haaa ha ha waaa haa” background vocals, and I don’t think their slow song can be as good and interesting as their faster ones. So yeah, I’m kinda dissapointed since their previous singles are pretty good and catchy.

The b-side is also quite bland, not as unique compare to their previous releases. I agree with Leanne that the b-side is slightly better than the a-side, mainly because it’s more lightly and jumpy, which to me, are the things you would expect from H!P groups, and the things they’re doing best at. :)

Overall, this single kinda dissapoints me. I hope their album won’t be a disaster because they’ve been producing some good singles so far. I also hope they won’t go missing all of a sudden, groups like Biyuuden should stay around longer than anything else, but then isn’t Rika going to graduate soon, seeing she’s one of the member of the new solo artist group DEF.DIVA?

Hmm, both songs are okay. I like the b-side slightly more than the a-side as well. I wonder if biyuuden will release only one album and then disappear? Thanks for the review Laina!
