This single marks the debut of the "sixth generation" members Miki Fujimoto (who came from a Hello! Project solo career), Sayumi Michishige, Eri Kamei and Reina Tanaka. Once the sixth generation joined, it made it the group's biggest formation yet, with 15 members. Like "Do It!

It was released in two editlons, a regular and a limited editlon coming with fifteen photocards and comes in special packaging.
