New Unit: Guardians 4

A new Hello! Project unit has been announced entitled, Guardians 4 – those of you familar with the Shugo-Chara anime may have heard this name before as the group is based on four characters from the series. It was originally thought that the group was simply a rebranded Shugo-Chara Egg however the group is made up of the following Hello! Pro members;

  • Mitsui Aika (Morning Musume)
  • Sugaya Risako (Berryz Koubou)
  • Kumai Yurina (Berryz Koubou)
  • Nakajima Saki (C-ute)

This is the first time Sugaya Risako and Kumai Yurina have been in a sub-unit, not including 4KIDS. Mitsui and Nakajima were in Athena & Robikerottsu together. The group will debut with Omakase! Guardian on 2009-05-27. I’m assuming Shugo-Chara Egg is no more?

Guardians 4 will sing both the opening and ending themese for Shugo-Chara Doki!
