Petitmoni, Petit Moni, or Pucchi Moni was the second subgroup formed from the Morning Musume lineup.
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, so Yoshizawa Hitomi was added to the group. Petitmoni released three more singles before releasing their only album, Zenbu! Pucchi Moni. The album was a collection of all their singles and c/w tracks, along with two Pucchi Mobikkusu 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 even release a single. They did however release a song titled WOW WOW WOW which was included on the Pucchi Best 4 compilation CD, as well as a remake of Chokotto Love (titled Chokotto Love ) with the new lineup which was included on Pucchi Best 3.
Currently Petitmoni is inactive, and there are no known plans of their return.
