TriviaEdit

  • This is the second and last single in which Niigaki Risa was leader of Morning Musume.
  • This is the second single to release a Sotsugyou Kinen Edition, the first being Takahashi Ai's for "Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!".
  • This is the last single to feature a 5th and 8th generation member.
  • This is first Morning Musume single to release 2 Event Vs.
  • The Sotsugyou Kinen Edition contained a special solo song of a past Hello! Project single, sung by Niigaki herself, because of her position of being the "longest enrolled member of Morning Musume".
  • Tsunku commented "Ren'ai Hunter" on Twitter himself, saying: "MM's new song is too cool. Will they be able to sing it? It'll be a fight with/for their skills. I wonder if 9th and 10th gen will be able to keep up with the dance for MM's new song."
  • This song is believed to be influenced by Dubstep, a European/American genre of music/dance.
  • At the end of the MV, Niigaki Risa mouths "Morning Musume, daisuki", which translates to "Morning Musume, I love you".
  • This is the third single in which Mitsui Aika is not present in the dance shot due to an injury.
  • It was the first song in nearly two years to reach #1 on the Oricon Daily Chart. It is also the first daily #1 featuring the 9th and 10th generations.
  • For Morning Musume's 15th anniversary, Niigaki Risa commented on the single for a YouTube video.[1]
  • As of February 2016, it is the second highest viewed official music video (not counting dance shot music videos) on Morning Musume's YouTube channel with over 5,000,000 views, surpassed only by "Wagamama Ki no Mama Ai no Joke" in January 2014. Overall, it is 1 of 46 music videos for a single that has reached over 1,000,000 views.
