Trivia

  • Aitakatta is one of the most well-known and recognizable AKB48 songs.
  • This was the first single to include the Team K members.
  • Despite being released years ago, Aitakatta is still being used as the opening theme of AKB's long-running variety show AKBINGO!. It was also the theme of the AKB 1ji 59fun! and AKB 0ji 59fun!, the pilot seasons of the show.
  • Because of AKB48's boom, Aitakatta was promoted a lot as the signature song) of the group. This made Aitakatta re-chart in the Oricon weekly charts during late 2009 and 2010. It was also certificated Gold for Digital Downloads by cellphone in the RIAJ Digital Track Chart.
    • This was surprising because Aitakatta was released almost 4 years before it recharted, but also because the single had not been printing for a long time.
