TriviaEdit

  • The single was announced on March 27, 2019 by Miyazaki Yuka on the Juice=Juice official blog.[1]
  • "25sai Eien Setsu" is a reference to the fan theory named "25sai Teinen Setsu" (25歳定年説; Age 25 Retirement Theory) that was fueled in late 2018 by the graduation announcements of Iikubo Haruna, Wada Ayaka and Miyazaki, the three oldest Hello! Project members at time, which re-enforced some fans' beliefs that female idols are pressured to graduate before or when they turn age 25.[18] After Miyazaki's graduation announcement YouTube video mostly received comments mentioning the fan theory, Wada vented about it on her blog the next day, saying she was extremely disappointed in people being focused on their age instead of supporting their decisions.[19][20]
  • A Twitter post by user @2iko922 on July 9, 2019 featuring a clip of Juice=Juice's performance of "'Hitori de Ikiraresou' tte Sore tte Nee, Homete Iru no?" on Utacon went viral on Twitter in Japan, garnering over one million views, 31,700 likes, and 10,400 retweets in just four days.
    • The newfound attention resulted in additional release events being scheduled for August 13,[21] August 14,[22] September 22, October 22, November 2, [23] and October 27, 2019[24]
    • A "Juice=Juice×JOYSOUND Collab Campaign" was announced to take place from September 6 to October 6, 2019, in which extra prizes could be won from the karaoke establishment for singing "'Hitori de Ikiraresou' tte Sore tte Nee, Homete Iru no?".[25][26]
    • This also prompted a Regular Edition C of the single to be released on October 23, 2019, over four months after the single's initial release.[2]
  • This is Juice=Juice's second single to be certified gold by the RIAJ, recognizing the sale of over 100,000 copies.[27]
  • The vocals for "'Hitori de Ikiraresou' tte Sore tte Nee, Homete Iru no? (New Vocal Ver.)" were completely re-recorded, and the singing parts were shuffled and re-distributed.
  • A lyric video for "'Hitori de Ikiraresou' tte Sore tte Nee, Homete Iru no?" by animator Nobutaka Yoda of 10GAUGE was released on October 10, 2019.[28] Audio from the New Vocal Ver. of the song was used for the video.
