In the spring of 2000, Tsunku decided to shuffle all the artists he managed under Hello! Project. It became an annual event, usually around summer time. This time around, Tsunku split the artists he managed into three different groups, and named them after the elements. The previous years the whole purpose of the shuffling and three groups was to see which group would sell the most singles. In 2003 this idea was abandoned, and a joint single was released instead.

Tsunku decided to have the elements as the theme this year. He named the groups SALT5, 7AIR and 11WATER. 

SALT5 are Makoto Ogawa, Aya Matsuura, Ai Kago, Natsumi Abe and Yuki Maeda ; 7AIR are Mika Todd, Masae Ohtani, Risa Niigaki, Ai Takahashi, Rika Ishikawa, Mai Satoda and Atsuko Inaba ; 11WATER are Ayaka Kimura, Hitomi Saito, Asami Konno, Nozomi Tsuji, Miki Fujimoto, Mari Yaguchi, Ayumi Shibata, Hitomi Yoshizawa, Kaori Iida, Asami Kimura and Megumi Murata.

There were 45 girls in Hello! Project at the time of this release, but several of them are not in the shuffles this year; 15 Hello! Project kids, Yuko Nakazawa, Kei Yasuda, Maki Goto, Eri Kamei, Sayumi Michishige, Reina Tanaka and Miuna Saito.
