"3 Natsu Natsu Mini Berryz" (③夏夏ミニベリーズ, San Natsu Natsu Mini Berīzu, 3: Summer, Summer, Mini Berryz) is the third studio album (a mini-album) by the Japanese girl group Berryz Kobo. It was released in Japan on July 5, 2006. It's the group's third studio album(Although this is a mini album), fourth non-single release, and fifteenth audio release overall.
3 Natsu Natsu Mini Berryz is a concept album with a summer theme. It is also Berryz' second seasonal-themed release (Their previous EP, Special! Best Mini: 2.5 Maime no Kare, featured a winter theme in its artwork but no winter-related songs) and features their previous single "Jiriri Kiteru" along with five tracks exclusive to the EP.
The EP is equally notable to Berryz fans for featuring separate members, or clusters of members, covering summer-related Hello! Project songs by Aya Matsuura, Coconuts Musume, and 3nin Matsuri.
The album debuted at number 20 in the Oricon Weekly Single Chart, remaining in the list for 3 weeks.
