"If '11gatsu no Anklet [11 月 の ア ン ク レ ッ ト]' could be in the first rank of audience choice, I think I'll cry when singing.I am the type who does not cry in public, but if that's the case I do not think I'll be able to hold back my tears."

Regarding the 10 candidates for the song, Sashihara Rino commented, "Everything is a good song, no matter which song will be chosen (big 3), I'm looking forward to it."

While responding to the song 'Oogoe Diamong [10 声 ダ イ ヤ モ モ ド ド ド]' which also included in the 10 candidates, Matsui Jurina commented, "The song was performed when I debuted and was still in elementary school, I am very happy to sing it again when I was 20 years old. "
