2. "Koko ni Iruzee!"

No. 5 (Number 5) is the fifth album from the J-pop idol group Morning Musume, released on March 26, 2003.

No. 5 is the last studio album to feature Yasuda Kei and Abe Natsumi as full members of the group. Yasuda graduated later in 2003, and Abe graduated in early 2004. It is also the first Morning Musume studio album to feature a former member as a returning guest artist, as Goto Maki guests on "Megami ~Mousse na Yasashisa~" and "Ganbacchae" (and on "Do it! Now", her last single as a member of the band).

Two of the songs, "Megami ~Mousse na Yasashisa~" and "YES! POCKY GIRLS", are credited to two one-time Morning Musume spinoff groups, Venus Mousse and POCKY GIRLS, respectively. The songs originated as promotional songs for Pocky biscuit snacks and appeared in versions that are least one minute shorter on the Petit Best 3 compilation album in December 2002.

The album reached #1 on the Oricon charts and charted for four weeks, selling 175,292 copies
