Q: How would you describe your new song, Seishun Bus Guide?

Shimizu Saki: When I first read the title, I thought it was going to be a cute song, but it turned out to be something really cool!

Tsugunaga Momoko: Seishun Bus Guide is the first song where we take the point of view of a boy. The dance is also rather boyish (o^∀^o)☆ I began this honor roll male student in the PV
