Say (生-say- Life/Say?) is the solo second album by J-pop singer Misono, released on July 16, 2008. The album can be found on two different formats, CD-Only and CD+DVD. The album held the following single releases before its initial release: "Hot Time / A.(Answer)", "Pochi", "Zasetsu Chiten", "Jūnin Toiro", "Mugen Kigen", and "Ninin Sankyaku". The title of the album is a pun: Sei ( Life?) is a homonym for the English word Say.

The album contains all of Misono's singles since "Pochi" up until "Ninin Sankyaku", and all of those singles' A-side and B-side tracks (save for "Ninin Sankyaku"'s medley) and the DVD contains alternate versions of the music videos released for the singles. For example, the "Box ver." of "Zasetsu Chiten" takes place solely in the box setting of the original video.

Say made it to number 13 on the Oricon Daily Album Charts but went to number 20 on the Oricon Weekly Album Charts.
