«SEXY NIGHT -Wasurerarenai Kare-» is a cd single released by the Hello! Project group ROMANS.

The single contains the title track and its instrumental, as well as a b-side (Roman). It sold 26.795 copies, and ranked at #10 at the Oricon charts.

ROMANS (pronounced «romance») was a Hello! Project special unit. The group was based on the Hello! Project TV show Sexy Onna Juku and had a sexy, mature theme. They used deep red lipstick as their trademark.

Tsunku explained why he named the unit ROMANS: He wanted to write passionate lyrics for a unit consisting of women full of romance. In Japan, ROMAN is a shortened word for ROMANtic or ROMANce.

The show started to air in March of 2003, starring Rika Ishikawa, Miki Fujimoto, Hitomi Saito and Mai Satoda as the original cast. For some reason, Fujimoto leaves the show early on, and Mari Yaguchi and Ayaka Kimura are cast in May. In June, Tsunku announces that the cast will form a group and release a cd single. In July they are announced as a new unit at one of the H!P summer concerts. The single was released in August, and the show ended in September, thus disbanding the group.
