"Me ni wa Aoba Yama Hototogisu Hatsukoi" is the 12th single released by Idoling!!!. It was released in three versions, a limited CD+DVD edition, a limited CD Only edition, and a regular CD Only edition. Limited CD+DVD edition and first presses of the regular edition include a random trading card; the limited CD Only edition includes a random QT card, all of them from sets of 20.

The title "Me ni wa Aoba Yama Hototogisu Hatsukoi" is derived from the old Japanese Haiku "Me ni wa Aoba, Yama Hototgisu, Hatsu Katsuo" that explains that upon seeing the appearance of Fresh Leaves and the chirping of the Mountain Cuckoo and the Skipjack Tuna (Bonito) is a sign that the early summer days has come. Hototogisu should not be confused with another Japanese word "Yama Hototogisu" which is an orchid that blooms in Autumn. The word "Hototogisu" is now obsolete in Japan and its new pronunciation is "Kakkou"
