More Shugo Chara! News BlurbsSeptember 24, 2008 at 5:38 pm | Posted in News, Shugo Chara! | 9 Comments
Ah thank you to everyone who cleared things up so quickly. I really appreciate it. The only real service I can offer is gathering this information in one place since my Japanese is so very, very limited. I appreciate all the tips and I’m sure anyone else reading this does too.
So, moving right along. After September 20th, quite a few things did get cleared up.
First off, the 10/10 showing has been cleared up. That’s just a later showing on a different network. Not TV Tokyo which airs Shugo Chara! first.
Basically, the 10/10 airing is just a rerun of the first episode of the new season.
(Thanks to Hana for this tip!)
The new band is called “Shugo Chara Egg!” (they’re members from Hello!Project Egg, so I guess you can see where it comes from). And this group appears to be more specifically oriented with Shugo Chara! than Buono! was judging by the title and more specifically, their website. The outfits are kind of a giveaway too.
From left to right the girls are Saho Akari [Amulet Spade], Wasa Ayaka [Amulet Dia], Maeda Yuuka [Amulet Heart] and Fukuda Kanon [Amulet Clover].
The opening song will be titled Minna no Tamago and the single will be released on December 10, 2008.

(By now you’ve all probably heard this anyway)
More about Shugo Chara Egg!, you can hear Minna no Tamago on YouTube.
They do have a little bit of a different sound, but I like their first song. Or rather, I really, really like it. So cute (I’ve listened to it dozens of times). It’s fitting for the new group because I know everyone would complain if they were basically just like Buono!. Besides, it’s cute (and I like cute things).
Hmm…anyway, I’m looking forward to the new opening now (More Amuto please). And more from this group too. I have someone new to follow (at least until SC! ends).
You can also see some images from the event here (site in Spanish).
Buono!’s new single’s title has been announced: “Rottara Rottara”
It’s going to be the ending theme for Shugo Chara! next season like usual. I’m not sure if they’ll still be following the 12-13 episodes at a time system, but probably.
It’s still listed as Untitled on cdjapan, but you can preorder it there anyway.
The official site seems to updating with their own “Shugo Chara!! Doki” information slowly.
Though, like I said. Slowly.
The promo image is really the only interesting thing on the site (as seen above), but I’m thinking it does the opposite of what a promo image should. Instead of before where I was all, “Yay!” about the new season, the promo image gave me an immediate, “Ugh” reaction.
To clarify…Amulet Heart has roller blades. The other chara-nari’s have some new weapon too. None of this stuff has shown up in the manga. It all seems unnecessary for anything that happens in the manga. Therefore, the logical conclusion: Filler.
And not just filler, but these new weapons specifically make me think they’re going toward generic mahou shoujo action.
But hey, it’s just a promo image. No need to get all, “ugh” unless you’re like me. I like to fear the worst so that if I’m wrong, I end up being pleasantly surprised no matter what.
Shugo Chara! Season One Episode-Skipping Guide:
Okay, so SC! is 51 episodes long. That’s a lot of episodes. Lots of people have friends they want to watch SC! or just want to watch SC! themselves, but are bothered by the number of episodes. So now that we’re just about through season one I went ahead and picked through the episodes that would be worth watching. Use it and share it with your friends if you want! I don’t need credit!
This lists all of the episodes that add…something. Even some of these can be skipped. Just follow the little notations to decide what to skip. Anything without notations, really should be watched.

I put little notations next to some to say why I consider them to be necessary. Here’s a little key to explain some of them:
FF: At least try to Fast-Forward to catch a couple scenes
Manga Filler: It was in the manga, but still kind of filler
Intro: Something/Someone introduced
Overall: Important for running plot or sub-plot
Recommended: Not necessary, but I recommend it
Anime Plot: Anime plot only
I think this includes everything. Following this the episode count would be 37 episodes and some of those I recommend some Fast-Forwarding.
I have pretty much run out of official anime images with all of these blurbs. Someone needs to scan the calendar once it comes out. And Megami needs to use SC! for more awesomely cute posters.
…Well I still have the DVD covers and a couple of smaller images, but meh. No more blurbs for me. So no more seasons of Shugo Chara! after this either! You hear me Satelight!?
Anyway, I debated about waiting for the episode one info to come out before posting this, but that might not be until this Saturday. It’s already Wednesday, even if the information comes out tomorrow, I figure everyone can wait until my SC! post on Saturday anyway. That’s when I’ll be doing any news like normal.
If you can’t wait that long then I suggest you try to find information yourself, or check out (or subscribe to) my Twitter. I’ve already been updating when I find out some info. I’ll do so for every bit I find now that I’ve done this post. That’s if any new info comes out before Saturday anyway.
Like before, feel free to comment or e-mail me so I can edit or add things to this post. I’ll also add new tips to my twitter (whicyh you can find in the sidebar as well btw).
And…I think that’s it.
