This was not the first time Hololive delved into animated music videos and trailers.

Takahiro Okawa directed the trailer, and Yukei Yamada served as the chief animation director.
Hololive Summer 2023 is this year’s annual installment of its summer-themed event Hololive Summer. For this year, aside from various event appearances and regular content, it will also host an online live event titled Hololive Summer 2023 Live Splash Party! A trailer for the event was also released, supervised by Kanauru.
The Hololive Summer 2023 event came just days before the agency’s upcoming Hololive English 1st Concert -Connect the World- which was held at the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles, California on July 2. The concert was first announced on March 18 this year and was the first stand-alone event of this kind for the English branch of the company.
