TriviaEdit

  • It was rumoured that Pyocopyoco Ultra was going to be Niigaki Risa's graduation single, but these rumours are proven false.
  • This is the second single to have a Special Graduation Edition, the first one being Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!/Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai!.
  • The Special Graduation Edition will contain 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.
  • Mitsui Aika, 10th generation members and 9th generation members Fukumura Mizuki, Suzuki Kanon, and Ikuta Erina didn't recieve any solo lines.
  • At the end of the MV, Niigaki Risa mouths "Morning Musume, daisuki".
  • This is the third single in which Mitsui Aika is not present in the dance shot due to injury.
  • It’s been nearly two years since a Morning Musume single has topped the Oricion Daily Chart, and it's also the first #1 featuring the 9th and 10th generation.
  • As of April 2012, Ren'ai Hunter holds the record for Most Consecutive Top 10 Singles.
  • 5th Generation member Niigaki Risa gives a comment about the single on Youtube
  • This is the second and last single where Niigaki Risa was leader of Morning Musume.
