The album was released in three versions: Regular Edition and Limited Editions A and B. The regular edition was CD-only, the limited edition A included a second CD with six solo songs, and the limited edition B included a DVD with two music videos.[1] The album is also available on two LPs.

The album debuted at weekly number 3 in the Oricon chart.

The album won Grand Prix at the 4th CD Shop Awards, making Momoiro Clover Z the first idols to win it.[2] The CD Shop Awards ceremony is held annually; the winners are chosen by votes from Japanese record store clerks.[2]
