Seishun Bus Guide

Seishun Bus Guide was heavy-ly promoted when compared to Rival. This song was being used as the ending theme song to the Inazuma11 anime. The tie in with the anime, is what made fans believe as to why it was more promoted than Rival. The song was extremely surprising, because the girls where dressed as boys in school uniforms. The song revolved around one "Bus-Guide" in which the "boys" fall in love with and compete to when the heart of the Bus Guide, by making others jealous. While the PV seemed highly comical, the serious in the lyrics is an interesting variable in the equation.

While Seishun Bus Guide was a fast-beat song, Rival was nice-light alternative, tempo-changing song, full of energy and with a cute-soft-punk-rock feel to it. In addition to the feel of the song, the set was completely made out of cardboard, while Seishun Bus Guide was mainly CGI. The clothes seen on the cover of the the single are the clothes seen worn by the girls in the PV for Rival. The lyrics and the Pv followed nicely, as they both told of times of sadness, but having the future in you hand is something you have to keep you from letting bad things bother you.
