Limited A, C and E editions came with bonus DVDs, while all the limited editions and the first press of the regular edition came with a serial number card that could be used to win a chance to a handshake event. The Single V was released July 11th 2012.

Limited A and B’s b-side is sung by Morning Musume Rokkies, the remaining members of the sixth generation, Michishige Sayumi and Tanaka Reina.
