    Comments by Tsunku and Members
    Black Butterfly
    • Tsunku: “Firstly I started out by composing a piece of tango-like music. When I was making the melody, somehow there was no image of a butterfly, but when I was in the middle of shortening the arrangement I pictured the girls flapping their huge wings and floating upwards. Even so, the image as for up to now is bright and full of energy ! Rather than a butterfly, sometimes a little lonely, but, to be able to also have a strong mind and spirit, Such an image came to mind. And that’s how I might have arrived at Black Butterfly. At the dance choreography for the high part of the song there was the image of five of them merged together as one butterfly. I tried to project the girls currently as if they are looking for a place with bitter honey、rather than sweet honey”.[6]

    • Tsunku: “This is the other song. It seems that the girls flapping their wings freely gives off a strong feeling. This music gives a complete feeling of I want to be able to fly away into the sky”.[7]
