I really love how thus far both Guardians4 releases have also included a Shugo Chara Egg! version as well for their main title tracks~. Here we're treated to two versions of the new single "School Days" as the second track is dedicated to the very capable Egg unit comprised of Yuuka, Ayaka, Akari & Kanon and Pony Canyon really does a wonderful service to fans by continuing to color code their H!P releases' lyrics in their liner notes indicating which members are performing which solo lines~.
The LE includes a bonus DVD containing approximately 9 minutes of a behind the scenes look at the jacket filming….and as their accompanying pv DVD single won't be released until the 16th of this month this cute little clip is enough to tide me over till then~. =)
The first pressing also includes a Guardians4 trading card althought I'm not really sure if there are other versions out there in addition to the card I received as the first pressing sticker doesn't indicate if there are a variety of versions available….in most cases though H!P releases do tend to have multiple trading card versions so I imagine that there surely must be others. ＾ ＾
"School Days" has a most bouncy and *drummy* anthem like arrangement…and surely with the continuing "Shugo Chara!" animation tie in one would expect such a cheery and upbeat song♪♪~ for sure~. It's quite fun hearing both Guardians4 and the Eggs put their different spin of *cuteness* on this most catchy track! (*´∀｀*) Hmm…in some ways though the coupling with song "Itsuka dokoka de" may be even a bit more enchanting than the title track and if listen closely there's really a fantasy like aura to the instrumentation with an almost baroque flavor to it with a harpsichord indeed in the pop arrangement coupled with a most sweeping orchestration that's full of optimism~. I've always really loved the sounds of a harpsichord as while it looks very much a piano on the outside, its strings are actually plucked rather than struck as piano strings are made to do in producing both of their very unique musical♪♪~ sounds~.
And there's some really amusing moments happening during the included "jacket making of" clip with a most *adorable* Riichan having some difficulties in creating the running poses…(^q^) as well as……
…and Nakki♥ wishing for UFOs?? (・_・)！！
Which…um sort of arrives in the *cute* form of one most animated Mittsi~! ＾ ＾
So I really must sign off from the internet now…
