"Appears" is the eleventh single released by Ayumi Hamasaki on November 10, 1999, along with her second album, Loveppears. "Appears" is Hamasaki's only song that has been the title track of one of her studio albums as well as the A-side of one of her singles ("Secret," the title track of the album Secret, was released on a later single, but only as a B-side). Because of that distinction, the covers of "Appears" and Loveppears are similar in appearance. The single was limited to 300,000 copies.
