History

The first generation members of Petitmoni were Yasuda Kei, Ichii Sayaka and Goto Maki. They went on to release their first single, Chokotto LOVE, which sold more than a million copies.

After the first single, Ichii Sayaka graduated from Morning Musume and Petitmoni. Yoshizawa Hitomi was then added to the group. Petitmoni released three more singles before releasing their only album, Zenbu! Petitmoni. The album was a collection of all their singles and c/w tracks, along with two of The ★ Petitmobics medleys and an original track, Makenai Maketakunai.

After Goto graduated and Yasuda's graduation was announced, the group's formation changed yet again. Kimura Ayaka (of Coconuts Musume) and Ogawa Makoto (5th generation Morning Musume member) joined. Yossie became the new leader, but the new lineup didn't last long enough to release a single. They did, however, release a remake of Chokotto LOVE (titled Chokotto LOVE 2003 Version) with the new lineup which was included on Petit Best 3. They also released a new song, titled WOW WOW WOW, which was included on the Petit Best 4.

After 6 years on hiatus, Petitmoni went active again 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 the Summer concert for the same year (Hagiwara Mai was absent for the performance that was used for the concert's DVD release). Pira! Otome no Negai was then featured on Petit Best 10.
