Information

Ai no Dai 6 Kan is the sixth album from Morning Musume, released on December 8, 2004. The first press came with Hello! Project Photo Card No. 0084 and a B3-sized poster.

The album was released at a pivotal and transitional time for the group. Ai Kago and Nozomi Tsuji (who graduated from the group in August 2004 to continue with their duo W (Double You) full time) are feautred on the songs “Roman ~My Dear Boy~ and “Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari” which were recorded and released as singles when they were a part of the group, and on “Ship To The Future”, a song from Morning Musume’s Spring 2004 Musical “Help!! Atchii Chikyu o Samasunda”. Upon its release in December 2004, it was already known that first generation member and group leader Iida Kaori and fourth generation member, Ishikawa Rika, would be leaving the group within three months of each other — Iida to embark on a solo career and Ishikawa to concentrate on her new group V-u-den. Ai no Dai 6 Kan is also Mari Yaguchi’s last album with the group. This is also the first album to feature the 6th generation.

A new version of the album track “Chokkan: Toki to Shite Koi wa”, entitled “Chokkan 2: Nogashita Sakana wa Ōkiizo!” and featuring some different lyrics as well as new vocals by the post-Mari Yaguchi lineup, is the title track of Morning Musume’s 28th single release. A live recording of the original version of “Chokkan…” was released on December 21, 2005 on the Hello! Project compilation Petit Best 6.
