Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On March 14, 2020, Juice=Juice held Hello! Project's first internet autograph signing session through the website limista.[13]
  • All release events for the single held on or after April 1, 2020 were cancelled in consideration of a new policy established by the government to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Instead, three internet autograph signing sessions were scheduled for April 1, 4, and 5.[14]
  • Juice=Juice held a Twitter campaign to promote the single, where 50 fans could win an original sticker through lottery. The application period was from March 23 to April 5, and users had to follow the official Juice=Juice Twitter account and respond to the announcement tweet with the hashtag "#JJからの贈り物". Winners will be notified through Twitter DMs on April 20, 2020, and the gift will be sent in early May 2020.[15]
  • To promote the single, Juice=Juice held a mini live with no audience on April 1 that was live streamed through YouTube.[16]
  • This is their longest charting single.
  • On April 1, UP-FRONT PROMOTION changed the single's jacket covers on the Hello! Project and UP-FRONT WORKS websites with fake covers of Inaba Manaka, Kudo Yume and Matsunaga Riai dressed with pigeon heads, taken from the "Pop Music" music video, as an April Fools Day prank.
