Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During the single's promotion period, Asakura Kiki would not participate in lives or release events with the rest of the group, and instead hold separate talk events.[14]
  • Release events for the single began on October 19, 2019.[15]
  • On December 8, 2019, two blurred-out jacket covers for the single were posted onto Tsubaki Factory's Official Twitter, and a poll was held to decide which would be revealed first on December 10.[16] The Limited Edition A cover was revealed first as a result of the poll.[17]
  • To promote the single, shop campaigns were implemented in partnership with various stores at numerous locations across the country.[18]
  • The February 29 to March 8 release events for the single were canceled in consideration of a new policy established by the government to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.[19]
  • This is their highest first day and first week sales. Within its first week, this also became their highest selling single overall.
  • Throughout the promotion edit for Ishiki Takai Otome no Dilemma, circles appear with every member. This may symbolize the dilemma because circles have no straight sides or edges, so there is no solution.
  • "Dakishimerarete Mitai" is the seventh Tsubaki Factory's music video to reach 1,000,000 views on YouTube.
