«All For One And One For All!» is a cd single released by the group H!P All Stars.
The single contains the title track and its instrumental, as well as a two b-sides («Sankaku Kankei» and «Suki ni Naccha Ikenai Hito»).
In november 2004, Natsumi Abe were temporarily suspended for plagiarism, resulting in the cancellation of her announced single as well as not participating in promotions for this shuffle unit.
The single sold a total of 61.440 copies, and ranked at #5 on the Oricon music charts.
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, but in the summer of 2004 no shuffle groups were announced. It wasn’t until early winter the yearly shuffle group released their single.
This time around, Tsunku didn’t split the artists he managed into different groups. Instead, to commemorate H!P’s 7-year anniversery, he put all the 46 girls he managed at this time into one super group, naming them H!P All Stars. The usual total sales competion (who sells the most singles) was also abandoned. Instead the concept behind the song was to show the fans appreciation and celebrate Hello! Project’s 7th anniversary, whilst sending a message of peace.
Everyone wore school uniforms befitting their group (everyone in Morning Musume had matching uniforms, everyone in Country Musume wore matching ones etc). In addition, lines were distributed according to seniority with the 1st Generation members of Morning Musume singing the opening lines.
To stay true to the music video for this single, where all the girls appear accordingly to seniority, this list will also be after seniority. The 46 girls participating in this unit are:
Yuko Nakazawa, Kaori Iida, Natsumi Abe (1st gen Morning Musume)
