The music video for "Kimi to Iu Hana" was directed by Toshiaki Toyoda. A majority of the PV was filmed near a lake and an apartment complex. The video begins with a small man dressed in an elf costume dancing to the song while walking across a pier. AKG is then shown performing between the apartments and the lake. This is intercut with various scenes which depict the band running, angling, and finally joining the man in dancing across the pier. The video ends with an image of a flower dangling on a fishing hook. In 2004, the video won the award for Best New Artist Video at the SPACE SHOWER Music Video Awards.
All tracks are written by Masafumi Gotoh.
