"Nanchatte Ren'ai" (なんちゃって恋愛?, "Fake Love") is the 40th single release by the Japanese pop girl group Morning Musume. It was released on August 12, 2009 in four versions: regular edition, a 40th single commemorative, and two limited edition versions.[1] The limited editions each contain a different DVD with one of the PVs on it — as well as these, "Nanchatte Ren'ai (Close-up Ver. White)" and "Making of" were included on the Eizō The Morning Musume 4: Single M Clips DVD.[2]

On the August 14, 2009 broadcast of Music Station, original Morning Musume members Yuko Nakazawa, Kaori Iida, Mari Yaguchi, Rika Ishikawa, Hitomi Yoshizawa, Nozomi Tsuji and Asami Konno did a special performance as backing dancers in a collaboration with the current members.


Being the group's 40th single, "Nanchatte Ren'ai" has a special "40th Anniversary" commemorative release which contains the coupling track "Subete wa Ai no Chikara", a different track than the other releases. The album cover of the commemorative CD features Morning Musume in front of a white background, instead of a red background as featured in the other releases. The regular edition, Limited A and Limited B releases each contain the coupling track "Aki Urara" and each sport different covers. Each release contains the instrumental track of "Nanchatte Ren'ai".[1]

The two limited edition releases of the single both come with a DVD containing alternate versions of the music video for "Nanchatte Ren'ai". The Limited A DVD contains "Nanchatte Ren'ai (Dance Shot Ver.)", a music video consisting completely of Morning Musume performing the dance created for the single. The Limited B DVD contains "Nanchatte Ren'ai (Close-up Ver. Black)", a video consisting completely of solo shots of the members.[1]
