  • 4th generation member Tsuji Nozomi commented on the single in a YouTube video for Morning Musume's 15 anniversary.[1]
  • As of February 2016, the official music video is one of 46 music videos for a single that has reached over 1,000,000 views on Morning Musume's official YouTube channel.
  • In the original version, the members sang about the habits of the member, but in later concert performances with different line-ups, the members sang about themselves. It has multiple recorded versions: Ai no Dai 6 Kan, Rainbow 7, Dorimusu ①, and ⑮ Thank you, too, as well as the various concert performances.
  • During Iida Kaori's part, the members talked about how all older (former) members got married, and how she does a great job as the leader. Iida then shouted "But only until next year!". This hinted her graduation from the group in 2005.
  • This was the group's last single to receive a Gold Certification until the release of "One・Two・Three / The Matenrou Show" in 2012.
  • This is Morning Musume's first graduation single for more than one member.
