This single is already being used as the ending theme to TV anime “Pocket Monsters XY” (every Thursdays at 7:00pm on TV TOKYO) since last October. During the ending sequence, the heroine Selena does the “DORI DORI” dance to the cutest song in Pokemon history.

For the limited edition cover, Shokoton is surrounded by sweets and donuts while biting into an apple. The regular edition cover shows a miniature Shokotan surrounded by sweets and holding a big macaroon. The ending sequence to the anime is also an homage. The artwork matches the very girl-like lyrics and imagery.

A “DORI DORI” release event was confirmed on January 18 (Sunday). “LINE DOUGA NAMA HOSO ‘DORI DORI’ Special!!” was also confirmed for January 15 (Thursday) at 8:00pm.
