According to Yoshio Konno, who is in charge of Nogizaka46 at Sony Music Labels, this song was originally slated to be included in the group’s 2nd album, but they decided to release it sooner due to the amount of requests sent in by fans.
The lineup for “Hoka no Hoshi Kara”, which included Nanase Nishino, Reika Sakurai, Sayuri Inoue, Yuuri Saito, Kana Nakada, Marika Ito and Yumi Wakatsuki, returns for another song called “Sukima” for the Normal type.
The cover art photos were taken in Chichibu City, Saitama Prefecture, where the story of the animated feature took place. The uniforms and the photography locations were also inspired by the animated feature.
