Petitmoni were a Japanese pop trio that originally formed in 1999. The core lineup consisted of Hitomi Yoshizawa, Kei Yasuda
and Maki Goto. Although the lineup eventually replaced Yasuda and Goto with Makoto Ogawa and Ayaka Kimura, the group
maintained a relatively popular streak. The group eventually split in 2008, although the project was reborn as Petitmoni V, with
a younger core lineup.
