  • This is the first Morning Musume single since "AS FOR ONE DAY" to not feature a 6th generation member.
  • This is the first single since "Memory Seishun no Hikari" in which each featured generation has all of their members.
  • This is Fukumura Mizuki's and Ikuta Erina's first single as leader and sub-leader, respectively.
  • THE Big Chance contest for an amateur to direct one of Morning Musume's next music videos was announced on November 14, 2014.[2] On November 29, 2014, Ishida Ayumi confirmed that the winner of the contest would direct their 58th single.[3] Shibue Shuhei was decided as the winner by viewers' vote,[4] and directed the Another Ver. MV of "Seishun Kozou ga Naiteiru," which has only been uploaded on Morning Musume's official YouTube channel on April 7, 2015.[5]
  • Due to the fact that Suzuki Kanon was not completely healed from an ankle fracture, Miyamoto Karin was used as her substitute for the "Seishun Kozou ga Naiteiru" and "Yuugure wa Ameagari" videos.[6][7] It was previously thought Miyamoto would only be featured in the dance shot, similar to when Ishida Ayumi replaced her in the dance shot for "Ijiwaru Shinai de Dakishimete yo." It was revealed on an early leak of "Yuugure wa Ameagari" and the Hello! Project Station versions of both songs, that Miyamoto had been given close-up shots in the full Promotion Edit and MV, while Suzuki was notably entirely absent. Suzuki was, however, present in the Another Ver. of "Seishun Kozou ga Naiteiru."
  • The lyrics for "Seishun Kozou ga Naiteiru" include the lines "色は匂へど, 散りぬるを, 我が世誰ぞ, 常ならん." These lines are left untranslated and are romanized as "IROWANIOEDO, CHINIURUUWO, WAGAYOTAREZO, TSUNENARAM" in the official MV and the Another Ver. MV. These are lines of the Iroha poem. This poem uses all characters from the Japanese syllabary exactly once and this section has been translated as "Although its scent still lingers on, the form of a flower has scattered away. For whom will the glory of this world remain unchanged?" Other lines from the poem appear in the song as well. 
  • This is the first 13 member line-up since "Do it! Now" in 2002.
  • As of February 2016, the official music videos are 3 of 46 music videos for a single that have reached over 1,000,000 views on Morning Musume's official YouTube channel.
