Tsunku’s comment about the single on its release: Finally, Yuko Nakazawa has been selected as a role of a mother on a soap opera. At first, it was a little hard to believe for me, but when I thought she could be actually one of the mothers for a member of “Berryz Koubou”, I could totally agree with the concept. Anyway, for this song, I was told beforehand that the song was to be used as a theme song for the drama, so I produced it based on the atmosphere of the storyboard, as well as her natural character in her regular life as a matured woman. When I was writing the lyrics, I also kept in mind about the fact that only a few seconds will be used during the drama. After completing the lyrics, I thought everything was really cute and appealing, and it was really tough to decide which part was best suited for the drama. I took long time for this luxurious decision making process. When you watch the soap opera, you can pick up the overall mood of the song, but it would be nice if you could at least listen to a full chorus part. Then listen to the 1 verse, followed by the 2 verse. If you listen to this single in that order, you’ll be able to understand how awesome it sounds, a well as how Yuko Nakazawa’s voice naturally and gradually rises up to the climax.[1]

Yuko Nakazawa comments about this single in a 2008 interview: When I sing this song, I feel energized and I feel a new beginning. It’s a great song to send out good energy […]. This was a theme song for a daytime soap opera that I was featured in for the first time. It’s an upbeat pop song, and a great song for the live concerts. I was feeling very happy to be able to sing such an upbeat song while recording and performing it. “Do My Best”. Doing my best is a tough thing to do. But you really have to do your best in this life. And that’s what I keep in mind when I sing this song.[2]
