"Dai 2 Seichōki" (第②成長記, Daini Seichōki, "Record of the Second Growing Season") is the second full-length album by J-pop group Berryz Kobo, released on November 16, 2005. "Dai 2" (the second) is pronounced Dai ni. The first pressing of the album was enclosed in a cardboard slipcase and included four double-sided photocards of the band. The album peaked at #19 on the Oricon weekly charts, charting for 3 weeks.[1]

This album was the last Berryz Kobo release to feature Maiha Ishimura, who graduated from Hello! Project in 2005 in order to focus on her education. Ishimura's vocals are featured on the singles within the album; she is, however, not credited anywhere and does not feature on the cover. The seven remaining members of the band are depicted in school uniforms and carrying bookbags.

Dai 2 Seichōki 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 the group's second year of existence.
