Upon the announcement of this new group, I was curious to know what type of music Tsunku would match them up with. The first seconds of Omakase♪Guardian tell you that this is an “anime group”, which is a correct way to classify them. Fortunately, their debut song is actually a very fun, peppy pop track which although has that typical anime sound is contrasted by the group’s interesting and well balanced vocals. The Shugo Chara Egg! Version is exactly the same but with the vocals of(now 3/4 of S/mileage)the stated group. Of course, it isn’t as interesting and a lot safer than their more experienced members.
Summer Has Come! is even more of that anime sound mixed along with the H!P b-side stereotype. Surprisingly, it’s pulled off pretty well, even though it sounds very similar to any other anime song out there. I can’t say much about this song without repeating what I said about the a-side but it’s worth a least one listen.
So while this single was filled with anime sounds left and right, it still is pretty enjoyable, even if both tracks are both very kiddy. Of course, it’s not like Shugo Chara is some PG-13 anime either.
