Second Morning (セカンドモーニング) is the second album from Morning Musume. It was released in both CD (EPCE-5025) and MiniDisc (EPYE-5025) on July 28, 1999. This is the last studio album to feature 1st generation member Fukuda Asuka, though she had left the group before the release of this album.

It features their four previous singles’ A-sides (some of the tracks slightly mixed), a mix of the single B-sides "Never Forget" and "Koi no Shihatsu Ressha", and six new songs. The CD comes in a card board cover. The limited editions had 1 of 7 different colored mini photobooks: red, dark blue, light blue, green, yellow, and purple. The yellow mini photobook became the standard after first press sold out.

The album reached #3 on the weekly Oricon charts and charted for fourteen weeks, selling 428,990 copies. It also reached #60 on the yearly Oricon chart for 1999.

Nearly twenty years after its release, the album was released as a set of two TOWER RECORDS Limited LP records. It was pre-sold at the store opening of TOWER VINYL SHINJUKU on March 21, 2019, and was released at all TOWER RECORDS locations and TOWER RECORDS ONLINE on April 1, 2019.[1][2]
