Japanator's Hiroko Yamamura writes, "Another week, another AKB48 video. Hold the press! The new video is the B-side to their last hit Ue Kara Mariko, and I actually really dig it! It's a slow smooth holiday track, and captures the cuteness of the girls perfectly. Noel no Yoru creeps away fron the hyper sexy, and over stimulation, I hope the girls keep it up!"
