Petitmoni V (プッチモニV) was a Hello! Project unit, a revival group of Petitmoni. The idea was probably to revive the sub-units, since a release of an album or singles were announced, then scrapped.

History

After 6 years on hiatus, Petitmoni became active again in 2009, this time with a new concept and name: Petitmoni V.

The new line-up recorded "Kimi ga Iru Dake de" for Chanpuru 1 ~Happy Marriage Song Cover Shuu~, and later performed a new original song, "Pira! Otome no Negai" at that year's summer concert tour (Hagiwara was absent for the performance that was recorded for the concert's DVD release). "Pira! Otome no Negai" was then featured in Petit Best 10.

Petitmoni V's last performance was during the Hello! Project 2011 WINTER ~Kangei Shinsen Matsuri~ A gana Live, after which the unit became inactive.

In January 2013, Petitmoni V briefly reunited for Hello! Project's 15th anniversary tour, performing alongside Yoshizawa Hitomi.
