Momochi was supposed to be someone untouchable, yet Chinami was a natural enemy of hers.

The cute Chinami became sulky and got into a fight with Momochi when she got into Country because she felt like her juniors were “stealing” Momochi away from her.

Chinami got super pissed off at Momochi for coming at her with a snake.

They apparently sold Momochi’s favorite cough drops at a supermarket near Chinami’s house, so she asked her to buy her some. While Chinami initially refused, they ended up going there to buy them together.

They’ve gotten angry at each other and made up so many times, it really isn’t like any old relationship between them.

It felt like you’d see them together a lot in making-ofs and other backstage footage. They couldn’t normally do it out in the open in front of the cameras because of the whole “business partners” act, but there’s so much footage of them behind-the-scenes having fun talking to each other.

They’re constantly holding hands in the Group Lip ver. of Busu Tetsu.

They went on a date for a DVD just before they graduated. The staff made a great decision by having them do that. That really was a rather amazing, controversial DVD.

① Momoko was appearing at a Satoyama event where she was instructing her juniors in Country Girls. Chinami saw this and felt like her friend was being taken from her, so she got jealous and said to them “it’s not your time yet!“
② On the day of the Satoyama event, the Berryz members were having dinner but Momoko was going to be coming late because she was busy with Country Girls, so Chinami saved her some takoyaki. When Momoko arrived, she immediately went “did you guys save me some?!” Chinami got pissed off at her for this.
③ Chinami had planned to wake up three minutes before the handshake event, but Momoko loudly woke her up five minutes before. Chinami got pissed off at her. The fight that ensued didn’t get resolved for three weeks.

That last one happened in 2014 on November 23rd, and they made up on December 15th (although that second date hasn’t been confirmed.)

I’m seriously so glad they made up on that last DVD Magazine. Had it not been for their Kawagoe date, it’s possible the group could’ve disbanded while the two were still estranged.

It’s not often you see DVD Magazines that make you cry like that.

That really must’ve been a pretty serious fight. Momochi even complained to the staff before the filming of the DVD Magazine how she didn’t want to do it because she was fighting with Chinami.

Momochi’s little brother was actually a Chinami oshi. That had to have been a shock to Momochi because of how completely different the two are.

When they were riding on a shinkansen, Chinami lowered her seat all the way back. Momochi, who was behind her, got pissed off at her and went “I can’t believe you’d lower it all the way down! Do you have zero manners?!” So Chinami also got pissed off and went “fine, I won’t lower it then!” and returned it back to its original position. However, she found that it was difficult to sleep that way, so afterwards, little by little, she secretly lowered it anyway.

Although Chinami can be extremely emotional, she was usually kind towards the members… except for Momoko. She probably thought she didn’t like her when they were children and they got into so many fights that now even though they’ve grown up she just can’t fully open herself up to Momoko.

They kept this a secret for the longest time, but they’d actually go for sleepovers at each others’ houses quite often. I got the chills when I first heard about it.

When they were appearing on variety shows and Chinami would be making coldhearted statements towards Momochi, she would afterwards tell her how she didn’t really mean it.

Reading through this thread, there were so many episodes I didn’t know about, as well as cute episodes that just make me smile re-reading them now. It’s like… Berikyuu seriously showed us so many real human connections and personal growth.
Henkka: Many years from now, some pop idol archeologist will be doing research and wondering why people in the 21st century used the word “business partners” to describe the best of friends.
I was so glad Chinami, Momoko, and Maasa covered Get Up Rapper on Kanjuku Berryz
I feel very old now. It’s seem like yesterday, but it actually was 3 years ago.
I really liked Berryz Kobo. Every one of them was an interesting character. Tsubaki is growing on me of late though.
I’ve always liked this pairing. Chinami along with Michishige were natural kryptonite to Momochi, they werent fazed by that powerful character and often shot it down… But they really do like each other deep down inside… I can’t remember if it was an article I read or a tv program i saw but I do remember in the past Chinami saying something like “Momochi I don’t like but I do like Tsugunaga Momoko”
Thanks for this heartwarming thread.
Apparently Captain said that Chinami still keeps in touch with Momoko, I’m not even surprised.
Also I could kill for a subbed version of that DVD mag.
Im so sad I came in on the end part of Berryz and C-ute. I feel a bit cheated and Im scared tsubaki and kobushi wont live up to those amazing groups…
Don’t feel sad. It’s never too late. You might not be able to see Berryz and C-ute live anymore, but their history is all there for the taking, my man. Those two groups… that right there is some of the finest Hello! Project music there ever was.
Berryz related threads always make me feel happy. ^^ Thanks for the translation!
Thank you! It’s always a treat to read about my two favorite Berryz Members. Although I’m actually younger than them, I still cherish that I could watch them grow and I’m so very proud of them for their efforts and success in achieving their dreams.
I got the impression from Captain that Chinami is the one who talks with Momo the most nowadays. That makes me smile.
I wish we could see Momoko again…. But I know that she’s out there following a dream she’s truly passionate about. And I think of how she said that she wants her fans to be happy. So, I figure she does not want me to be sad about her vanishing from the public eye.. So I am happy for her instead.
The Hello!Project Kids really produced a wonderful group of young women. I’m happy that I have had the opportunity to be a fan, even though I’m far away.
what video is that of momo and chinami on the balcony?
