School Days

Guardians 4’s 2nd single, entitled School Days, was released on 09.02.09. The title track was used as the 4th ending theme for Shugo Chara!! Doki.

School Days is a sunny and sweet song that continues the girls’ cute sound. The song begins with an upbeat and happy instrumental that will make the listener smile along with the girls. Aika sounds great as usual andher vocals stand out in particular alongside the magical fun instrumentation. The chorus is nice and energetic, keeping the flow from the verses. It’s a quite nice track mostly because of the instrumentation, which more than just the usual cute standard. It definitely highlights the girls’ voices and stands out.

いつかどこかで. is the single’s B-side. Even though it’s not the most stellar track and a pretty typical song, it’s a nice listen when the listener is in the mood. The vocals fit the music well and keeps the sunny atmosphere for the listener to hear.

In order to promote the single, a PV for School Days was made. The video features the girls wandering through a hedge maze as well as dancing in a library. There are guest appearances from the anime characters to promote the show even more. It’s nothing amazing but the girls look cute and it fits the song nicely.

Single Ranking: B

Guardians 4 did a nice job with their second single, continuing with another cute song. It would be nice to see them try something different for a single like Buono! did because the results could show a different side to these girls that would make them shine.
