Nakazawa's comment about the single, in a 2008-interview:[1]

"This is the song that changed my direction of career.

Until I received this song, I was honestly losing the purpose of singing. I was also losing confidence and I was about to give up my career. When I was feeling this way, I received this song. I did my own solo live for the first time, and the concert’s director was the same director as Moritaka Chisato's. So I received lessons from him during rehearsals. In terms of singing, he gave me so many great advices like, “No Nakazawa, that’s not it. That wasn’t quite it” etc. I was practicing the song over and over. After the lessons, I suddenly felt joy in singing once again. And I began falling in love with this song. I was able to sing this song. I know something has changed inside me.

I love the CD cover as well as the music video. I really felt a destiny for this song. And that’s why I try not to sing it all the time at live performance. It’s such an important song for me that I am keeping it deep inside me as a secret treasure. Look at my photos [from the photo shoot] from “Tokyo Bijin”. Don’t I look really cold and unapproachable? I look extremely determined. My eyes seem to be saying, “I’m going to show you what I’ve got.” (lol) How should I describe them? It’s not like, “Come and fight against me.” But my eyes are so piercing. If I feel that way by looking at my own photo, I wonder what others were thinking."
