Trivia

  • When the album was first announced, numerous online music shops such as HMV, Shisendo, etc... listed the contents of the DVD of the Regular Edition as previously unreleased Making Of Videos of 6~7 songs. Most likely those from Iiwake Maybe until Sakura no Shiori since any of those making off clips had been released so far, and including B-sides's PV, the total of unreleased making videos is 8.
  • The CD cover, backcover, and obi of both Regular Edition and Theatre Edition have a holofoil printed over them. The Theater Edition also includes the holofoil in the resting 11 covers.
  • The title's meaning is actually a word play. (Kami) means "God" and (kyoku) means "song" and たち(tachi) is colloquial suffix (particle) that works as a Plural marker. A translation would be something like "God(ly) Songs".
  • Because of its complex title, the album has a lot of romaji variations, such as "Kami-kyokutachi" "Kamikyoku-tachi" and "Kamikyokutachi".
  • Motto: 「さあ、これからだ。AKBの歴史は始まる」 ("Saa, kore kara da. AKB no Rekishi wa Hajimaru" / Translation: "It's time, from now on! AKB's History will begin!")
