Trivia[]

  • The single was announced on May 5, 2018 at the Morning Musume Tanjou 20 Shuunen Kinen Concert Tour 2018 Haru ~We are MORNING MUSUME~ in Hokkaido.[16]
  • This is the first single to not feature Kudo Haruka since "Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!".
  • "A gonna" is a pun on the phrase "ee gana" (ええがな), which is Kansai dialect for "ii ja nai ka" (いいじゃないか), meaning "why not?" or "who cares?".
  • The "Are you Happy?" music video was shot at Fuefukigawa Fruit Park in Yamanishi Prefecture.[17][18] The indoor plaza was also the location for T&C Bomber's "HEY! Mahiru no Shinkirou".
  • This is the first single to sell over 100,000 copies on the first day since "Tsumetai Kaze to Kataomoi / ENDLESS SKY / One and Only" in 2015, which it also reached daily #1 on the Oricon singles chart, easily beating "F.L.Y. BOYS F.L.Y. GIRLS" by LDH group GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE by over 24,000 copies.
  • This is the first weekly #1 to feature the 13th and 14th generations, and the last weekly #1 to feature Ogata Haruna.
  • This is the sixth of 9 consecutive singles to have a lineup change (First single without Kudo Haruka and last single of Ogata Haruna).
  • In a Billboard Japan interview with the 12th generation members, Ogata revealed that the single was recorded while she was still waiting for the results of her university entrance exams and had not yet made the decision to graduate.[19]
