Dai ② Seichouki (第②成長記, "Dai 2" pronounced as Dai Ni; A Record of the 2nd Growing Season) is Berryz Koubou's second studio album.

Dai ② Seichouki would be the first of an informal trilogy of three Berryz releases, each issued within one or two weeks of each other, to close out Berryz Koubou's second year of existence. The band's first single as a seven-piece, "Gag 100kaibun Aishite Kudasai", was scheduled to be released one week after Dai 2 Saichouki.

The first pressing of the album was enclosed in a cardboard slipcase and includes four double-sided photocards of the band.

Over 14 years after its initial release, the album was released as a set of two TOWER RECORDS Limited LP records. It was pre-sold at TOWER VINYL SHINJUKU on April 26, 2019, and was released at all TOWER RECORDS locations and TOWER RECORDS ONLINE on May 1, 2019.[1][2]
