The booklet of Type C (and possibly the others) can fold out to make a house:


This is an interesting single in practice because of all the gimmicks. Sales have been dropping recently and the Janken single traditionally has low sales. To counter this they are enlisting at least three things. Firstly, the sheer amount of Types, it is rare to get a 3rd Type (excluding the Theatre Edition), let alone a 4th, this Type D. Secondly there is the inclusion of all the sister groups. SKE48 and NMB48 have become increasingly popular and HKT48 is new, this being their long-awaitedfirst song - coming before their debut single on Universal in 2013. Finally there is the Music Video Request. Team B Oshi isn't a surprise win. Acchan's solo is interesting, since she has now graduated the group, and this must have helped it gain votes. First Rabbit seems to be getting pushed now as well, appearing in both New Team A and New Team K's Waiting Stages.
