|Singles from 7.5 Fuyu Fuyu Morning Musume Mini!|
It was released on December 13, 2006. The album was released in two versions– a standard edition, containing only the CD (with a photocard included with the first press editions), and a limited edition containing a bonus DVD.
This mini-album is considered to be their "7.5th album", as it was released between their seventh and eighth albums. All of the tracks were written and composed by Tsunku. The songs were composed to have a "wintry" feel, and the single "Aruiteru", their last single of 2006, was added to the track list. Since eighth-generation member Aika Mitsui did not officially join the group until December 10, three days before the EP was released, she did not participate in the recording.
The EP features five tracks by solo and or smaller combinations of band members, the second Morning Musume non-single release since Rainbow 7 to do so.
- "Aruiteru" (歩いてる, "Walking")
- "Kira Kira Fuyu no Shiny G" (キラキラ冬のシャイニーG Kira Kira Fuyu no Shainii Gāru)

- "Yuki / Ai × Anata ≧ Suki" (雪／愛×あなた≧好き Ai Bun no Yuki Kakeru Anata Dainari Ikōru Suki)
