On April 17th, Morning Musume held a release event for their new single "Brainstorming/Kimi sae Ireba Nani mo Iranai", which was released that day, at Ikebukuro Sunshine City.

The girls appeared in front of a crowd of 2,000 and started the event with the performance of "Kimi sae Ireba Nani mo Iranai". After the members' introduction, there was also a talk segment. As the lyrics in "Brainstorming" says, "I'm the type of girl who gets compliment just by acting normal," each member talked about the good sides of the other members.

Morning Musume then performed "One?Twe?Three" and "Help me!!", which livened up the audience's mood to the highest point, and the leader Michishige Sayumi made an announcement that Morning Musume's live concert at Nippon Budokan on May 21st will be streamed live at the movie theaters nationwide. It will be the graduation concert for Tanaka Reina.

Michishige said, "You can watch it in movie theaters across Japan from as far north as Hokkaido where Sato's hometown is and as far south as Fukuoka where Reina and Ikuta's hometown is, so all of you who can't come to the concert, please visit the theaters," which caused the crowd to cheer.

After that, Tanaka revealed her thoughts on the latest single which is also the last single for her, "Since this was my last single, I was thinking that it would be something like 'I will fly high' kind of song, but it was actually a cool song in the recent style of Morning Musume. Also it's special as double A-sides, so I am happy to be able to graduate with this single. Everybody, please listen to it many times!"

Lastly, they performed "Brainstorming" and ended their event, which was held for 45 minutes.
