°C-ute's dancing performance of "Sakura Chirari"!!!

°C-ute's Official YouTube Channel uploaded awesome video!!!
Which is °C-ute members dance to their major debut single, "Sakura Chirari" in front of/under the sakura trees!!!

Here's the video:

I think it's Chissa's idea but it might be one of Tsunku's genius business plans to make °C-ute's first major debut single, "Sakura Chirari" as main theme song for Hanami season in Japan!!!
Anyway this video bring back a lot of memorises~~~
I am pretty sure if you've been °C-ute's fan since Hello! Project Kids, you know what this single means to °C-ute & us, fans!

For the new comers, I will explain some of it to you~
Hello! Project Kids(a group of 15 young girls chosen out of 27,958 applicants) aka H!P Kids were chosen to support Hello! Project in various ways in 2002.
At first our Big Guy(Tsunku) was going to make Berryz Koubou as a group that line-ups change within the group(Basically same as rotating members system AKB48 related groups use these days) but the idea was dropped!
It was early 2004, Berryz Koubou was formed with only 8 girls out of 15.
The remaining 7 girls just left out there.
Even though they remained in the H!P Kids, I can't even imagine what those 7 girls went though at that time.
Later on 11 June 2005, 7 girls formed a group °C-ute.
But their dramatic story doesn't end here, forks!
Even though they got their official group name, they didn't get any single until 2006/05/06!!!
And top of that before they even get their first single, Arihara Kanna was added to a group in January 2006. (By the way for your information, Arikan wasn't part of H!P Kids.)
Can you imagine~!?
How come a singing group that didn't get their first single add more member!
Especially when their friends(Berryz Koubou) got 6 singles & 2 albums & 1 special mini album & so on, during that time!!!
After their indie debut single, "Massara Blue Jeans", they got 3 more indie singles before their major debut single, "Sakura Chirari" on 21 February 2007!
One more drama hit °C-ute hard, shortly before °C-ute made their major label debut!
Everything seemed so good until on October 31, 2006, Murakami Megumi, one of the original 7 girls suddenly left the group! The official stated that Megumi left because she wanted to return to an ordinary school life. But some fans believed that Hello! Project fired her because she violated H!P's contracts to date boys! It is because before she left the °C-ute & H!P, amateur photographs of Murakami holding hands with a supposed boyfriend in the street appeared on the internet! But many people, including myself, believe she left because she was afraid of these people following her! Because we know that Big Guy is strict but not that cold hearted!!!
Anyway back to the story, Megumi's sudden leave without graduation ceremony had huge impact on the group!
When they got their major label debut and later when they promote their single to the public on some show(I am not 100% sure on this one because I can't trust my brain these days. It could be way later in 2008 or 2009), the host asked them about what were the difficulties and so on, most member cried and told their stories first time in the public!

Official Dance Shot Version

Their dancing moves are really basics but it's really well choreographed~ Dance moves fit the lyrics so perfectly! And it reminds me the Hoedown~!!! I think it was Tsunku's idea to make this similar as Hoedown~ I don't know~ Is it just me??? Come one people, look at them boots!
