What’s Going On with Guardians 4

Guardians 4’s PV was just released recently. And we have it rather quickly, only about a week after the preview came out.

Guardians 4’s Going on PV is a little lack luster for my taste. The only enjoyable or cute elements to the video are the close up scenes. Which is really disappointing. The entire video is basically them dancing in the living room. Which is extremely boring. Berryz’s Watashi no mirai no danna-sama was mostly dancing but they still managed to make it interesting. And the animals were a big distraction. And not only because it was a stupid concept, but also because they virtually did nothing but sit there. If you’re going to add them to a video at least have them do something. Have the lion direct them. Show them the correct way to dance or show them to have more energy in the close up. Something like that would have made the video adorable. But instead the video is very basic and boring. But I’ve learned to expect that from Guardians 4 PVs.


Apparently the animals really were directing the video.


However there were no outburst by the animals.

It suddenly all makes sense why Guardians 4 is so great. It gets the production of both H!P and Lion PR.

I love how they incorporated SCE’s unlock dance move.

Lame dance moves ruin everything.

Well hello there gorgeous Yurina.

Yurina’s obvious towering height is hilarious.

But Risako”s cuteness is gladly accepted.


However Saki’s isn’t.


FRIENDSHIP!


DENIED! It’s really sad how Yurina physically moved away from Aika.


It’s ok I still love Mittsi.


This video is missing something. Better add more pineapple.

Guardians 4- Going On preview

Shugo Chara has a new opening and ending themes, and with every new theme comes song previews. Like Guardian 4’s new single Going On.

The song is overly happy and energetic much like their last 3 singles. And I of course instantly love the song. Guardians 4 can really do no wrong in my eyes. The music is standard girly anime music and the vocals are undeniably sweet, and I love every minute of it. I gotta say I love every Guardians 4 song. Practically every H!P single that gets touched by Shugo Chara ends up being amazing. Which makes me wish Shugo Chara would never end.

Since the song is used as an ending theme we also get a short preview of the PV.
Words cannot describe how much I hate the new outfits. I know they had to be yellow because of the anime, but I hate the color. It does nothing for them. I also wonder what the next Guardians 4 color will be since they used the 4 main colors already. I’m guessing they’ll most likely use lighter shades of each color. But I’m personally hoping that they use the same pink color Yuuka wore in the SCE PVs.

As expected the girls look really great. But I didn’t really notice anyone else, I was too busy focusing on Aika. She looks incredible. I love that hairstyle on her.



Although the song is pretty much full of win the PV looks kind of boring.

But all Guardians 4 PVs are relatively boring so I’m not really worried. The Shugo Chara endings are misleading anyway. Remember how they made it seem like Party Time was going to be nothing but one big Party scene? And of course it wasn’t.

I would just like to know what’s going on in this picture.

It looks like they’re having animal direct the video. If that’s the case it reminds we way too much of Fall Out Boy’s Thnks fr the Mmrs video, where they had monkeys directing it. XD

Party Time preview

The new Shugo Chara opening gives us a song and PV preview of Guardians 4’s 3rd single, Party Time. Which is being released on November 18th.

I actually really love the song. It’s the most anime sounding out of any of the Shugo Chara themes. It’s really happy sounding, but I could still see Buono doing this song. Maybe not as a sinlge, but an album song at least. I think this is probably my favorite Guardians 4 single yet. It’s really fun and light sounding. All the other songs seem bland compared to this one. Especially School Days. The only time I actually wanted to hear a Shugo Chara Eggs version, they give them their own song, Watashi no Tamago.

I was expecting more of a PV preview, they just sow a few stills from the video. I was hoping for something like Kirarin Revolution where the video is playing along the anime version of it. But I guess it’s better than nothing. The video does look really fun. It has a birthday themed, so that means there’s going to be a lot going on it in. Which I prefer in a PV. I’m really looking forward to the bubble and confetti scenes, they most likely be the cutest.
I also love the outfits. I think green plaid is easily the best one yet. And since they’ve done all the colors we can expect their next single’s outfit to be yellow. I’m not really looking forward to that though. I hate yellow.

Cheer on with Guardians 4!

Guardians 4’s Omakase! Guardian PVE was released recently. And after seeing the covers the PV is everything I hoped it wouldn’t be.

The video is completely cheap looking. The entire time they are either dancing in front of or sitting on stadium seats. There’s also a good minute worth of clips from the anime scattered throughout the PV. Which I don’t particularly care about. I understand they are doing the theme to the anime, but Buono never had clips from the anime in their PVs. That makes it pretty obvious Guardians 4 isn’t going to be around for that long.
There are some positive points the this PV though. For one every one looks super cute in the close ups. I really loved the dance too. Even though it was obnoxiously simple, it was cute and it looked like they were having fun doing it. I also love all the cute things they do throughout the PV, like cheer and hold up the signs. Especially Aika hitting the drum, that was just amazing.
I think the whole video was just a win for Aika. She dominated the cuteness in this video, she was also the most interesting to watch. And of course Yurina was a close second.

Guardians4 preview

New H!P unit Guradians4’s debut single, Omakase! Guardian, is being released on May 27th. A preview of the song is available courtesy of Shugo Chara’s opening.

I’m really happy too see the line distribution is identical to Shugo Chara Eggs’. And as expected Yurina sounds amazing! And Saki doesn’t completely annoy me in this song like I thought she would. All and all the think the song sounds ok. It’s not horrible but it didn’t blow me away either. For now it’s just resting on good. Maybe the song will grow on me but for now it’s just ok to me. Everyone sounds great in it though. Especially Yurina and Risako. I can’t wait for the PV now. Maybe it will make me like the song a little more.

New H!P unit Guardians 4

Starting April 4th there will be a new group to promote Shugo Chara called Guardians 4. This group will consist of Morning Musume member Mitsui Aika, C-ute member Nakajima Saki, and Berryz Koubou members Kumai Yurina and Sugaya Risako. Their first single, Omakase! Guardian, will come out on May 27th and will be the new opening theme to Shugo Chara.

This is seriously amazing news. Yurina is finally in a subgroup! And it’s about time. Yurnia is my favorite Berryz member. And she’s more talented then she gets credit for. And Mittsi in another group is amazing. Gotta love all the Aika love that’s going on lately. I’m not to thrilled about the second half though. Saki is one of my least favorite C-ute members and even though Risako can really sing, I think she already gets enough attention. The same thing happened with Athena & Robikerottsu. I listned to them for Aika and Risa.
Another thing that’s going to be interesting about this group is who is going to be the leader and main singer. I really don’t want to see an overdose of Risako or even her as the main singer. Her being in the group alone is enough. I’m actually hoping Aika takes lead vocals. Since she’s growing in popularity and singing opportunities. It doesn’t really matter who gets the main vocals though since Shugo Chara groups have really fair line distribution. And every one pretty much gets equal screen time.
As for leader they will probably go the Buono and High King route. Where they don’t have an official leader and one of the member names themselves as the unofficial leader. But if there is a leader it should definitely be Yurina.

The whole con of this group is Shuo Chara Eggs possibly disappearing. Which makes the whole Guardians 4 group bittersweet. I gain Aika and Yurina in a group but lose Yuuka and Kanon in one. Which is kind of terrible. Since Yuuka and Kanon are Eggs there’s a possibility we’ll never see from them again. I hope that doesn’t happen. Yuuka and Kanon deserve to be in an official group anyway.
