Trivia[]

  • The album was announced during a special live stream on the official Tsubaki Factory YouTube channel on March 25, 2021.[7][8]
  • In the teaser movies that were released to promote the album before its releases, "Masayume" is the only track that does not have its name and album information on the bottom left corner of the video.
    • In addition, one of the outfits Onoda Saori wears in the "Dakara Nannanda!" teaser movie is the same one worn in the music video of Dansha-ISM.
  • A Blu-ray featuring dance practices and the solo clips used in the teaser movies of the album will be released in mid-September 2021 for UP-FRONT WORKS Web Store pre-orders. It will be available for general sale at a later date.[9]
