Song Comments[edit | edit source]

  • "Lalala no Pipipi" is technopop and its lyrics are mostly about Michishige Sayumi’s current condition within the group and in her personal life.
  • "Dokkan Capriccio" is rock song made for concerts.
  • "Zero Kara Hajimaru Seishun" is a thankful soft song.
  • "Chikyuu ga Naiteru" is a Tanaka Reina/Sayashi Riho lead since the vocals needed are really hard for this “serious rock number”.
  • "Namida Hitoshizuku" is a song sung in minor, and even though its melody is simple, the song is quite hard, which allowed Tsunku to notice how much Tanaka Reina has improved.
  • "Waratte! YOU" is a disco song.
