  • This PV was filmed while Kusumi Koharu was recovering from an emergency appendectomy. As a result, she is missing from most of the shots of the group. Takahashi Ai and Kamei Eri re-recorded their parts with Kusumi in a smaller session with less-aggressive choreography to be mindful of her limited mobility.[1]
