«Pucchi best -Ki Ao Aka-» (also known as Petit Best) is a compilation album featuring various Hello! Project songs from the years 1999 and 2000.

A CD album and full-length DVD accompanies each Pucchi Best title, both having different but very similar track lists. 

The album sold 912.800 copies, charting for 19 weeks reaching #1 on the Oricon charts.

This album features five tracks previously unreleased on CD. The fifth track, «Toumorokoshi to Sora to Kaze», was used in commercials for SALA shampoo and was later released on Natsumi Abe’s first album Hitoribocchi. The eighth and ninth tracks are remixes of Morning Musume’s 7th and 8th singles. These remixes originally appeared on the vinyl LP versions of the singles. The tenth track is a version of Taiyo to Ciscomoon’s 6th single «Marui Taiyou -Winter Ver.-» with vocals by all four members rather than just the three who were in the unit at the time of the single’s release. This track was later included on the group’s second album 2nd STAGE. The sixteenth track is a recording of the Hello! Project theme song as performed by the 2000 shuffle units. The individual units had released versions on their singles. (generasia)

A limited edition for Hawaii was also released, containing the same track list but different cover. Two other Special Best for Hawaii-albums were also released, in 2002 and 2003.
