Regarding the first album, Kawanishi revealed that he was informed about being appointed as the "center" position via quick notice through LINE when everyone's dance roles were decided. "I did the practice well though I was quite nervous," said Kawanishi with a satisfying look. When they were asked the name of the dance performed in the bridge part, Sato turned to Kawanishi and asked "Takumi, what about you give a name now?" Surprised by the unexpected "request", he named it "Star Dance" so as to relate with the inspiration of the dance moves! Furthermore, their new costumes are one of the highlights as each of them comes with shiny motifs based on the concept of the album. Kono's costume seems to be particularly popular among the members, he was floating on air after being praised by their "fashion leader" Sato (Keigo) and commented that "I wanted to hear that from Keigo♡"!

In addition, all members were holing the newly released official penlights (glow sticks) and waved to the melody. Shiraiwa also revealed that all the members spent months discussing about the design of the penlight and they came up with a final decision after combining everyone's best idea. There is a way to link it with smartphone and change the colour. Can't wait to see the glow sticks in the air at their performance!
