Morning Musume's Koharu Kusumi had a huge part in ''Manga/KirarinRevolution'' by not only supplying the theme songs, but by also playing the protagonist, Kirari Tsukishima, in voice and in person on the children morning show ''OhaStar''. Come the end of the show, a 3D-animated sequel, ''Kirarin Revolution Stage 3'' was created in 2008 to continue the franchise with two new {{Canon Foreigner}}s, Kobeni and Noeru, as the leads. Hello! Project Eggs You Kikkawa and Sayaka Kitahara were chosen to play those roles in the same fashion Kusumi had with Kirari. After the end of ''Kirarin Revolution'', the group disbanded.

Mini Moni's [[LighterAndSofter kid appeal]] made them a hit with young children, and their songs tend to be nonsensical and educational. They've collaborated with comedian Baka Tono-sama ([[CatchPhrase "Ai~n!"]]) and appeared in ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}''. Following Todd's departure from the group and Kago and Tsuji leaving Morning Musume in 2004, the group disbanded.
