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 referenced 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.
