Trivia[]

  • The album was announced on The Girls Live on October 1, 2018.[12]
  • A month before the official announcement, information about the album including the correct release date and product codes were leaked on Twitter.[13]
  • "Hyoumenchouryoku ~Surface Tension~", written by Team Tobimatsu (Tobimatsu Koyu, Kamosori Makoto, Moribe Taiyo), was the runner-up song from Co-Write Battle held by music-ru TV in spring 2018.[14] The winning song would be released as J☆Dee'Z's eighth single,[15] but Team Tobimatsu lost to the other finalists.[16][17]
    • Earlier drafts of the song used the English title "Surface Tension" until Hyadain pointed out that it sounded like "service tenchou" (サービス店長; service store manager). Kodama Ameko, who was Team Tobimatsu's assistant lyricist, then changed it to "Hyoumenchouryoku" for the final draft.[16] When it was decided that Tsubaki Factory would release the song, the Japanese and English titles were both kept in the final title.[14][18]
