In 2004 It was re-released as part of the Early Single Box and again in 2005 as a 12 cm CD. Lead vocals of this single was Natsumi Abe. This single was also the debut of the "Second Generation" Morning Musume members Mari Yaguchi, Kei Yasuda and Sayaka Ichii, as well as the group's first single to be released under Zetima and distributed through Sony Music Japan's sub label Epic Records, as One Up Music (Zetima's former name) had ended its distribution deal with Warner Music Japan and adopted its current name after the release of the group's previous single "Morning Coffee".

Distribution rights for Zetima's catalog would be given to Sony for this single, Morning Musume's first album "First Time" and all of the Up-Front Works label's subsequent releases.
