- Both the A-side and B-side of the single were originally sung as team songs in the first stage of Team A.
- AKB48's eighth major label single, Sakura no Hanabiratachi 2008, was a remake of the title track of this single.
- In 2010, a special version of the A-side called Sakura no Hanabiratachi 2010 was made. The title was changed later on, because it was just going to be sung in a TV show. There were no other plans to release or sing this new version in the future.
