Critical Response[]

Hiraga Tetsuo, a writer for hotexpress, noted that when watching the music video for the first time he felt that the song was a declaration of war against other idol groups, namely the current leader of the idol scene, AKB48. When listening to the song, he stated that a characteristic for Tsunku is a mix of disco and pop, and the reviewer was really impressed by how much talent Hello! Project has, each girl having her distinctive voice, look, and manner of expression.

Trivia[]

  • In the close-up scenes, all the major group leaders, Berryz Koubou's captain Shimizu Saki, and Mano Erina were noted to make a "funny" face, while everyone else just smiled.
  • This was the highest selling Hello! Project single in 2011.
  • This is the last single to feature the now S/mileage 2nd generation (and Hello Pro Kenshuusei member Kosuga Fuyuka) as sub-members.
  • UP-FRONT KANSAI duo Lovelys covered "Moshimo..." for their album RioSaki.
