Buono! (ボーノ) is a Hello! Project unit consisting of three Hello! Project Kids members: Tsugunaga Momoko and Natsuyaki Miyabi from Berryz Koubou, and Suzuki Airi from ℃-ute. The group was formed to create opening and ending themes for the anime Shugo Chara!. After the anime ended, they were on hiatus for a year before moving to the Zetima label to continue making music.

Buono!'s lowest selling single is Natsu Dakara! with 12,554 sold.

Buono! continued to record the ending and opening themes for the first season of the anime.

Project announced that Buono! was to perform at the Japan Expo in Stockholm, Sweden on May 24, 2009, but the convention was cancelled a month earlier on April 21, 2009, due to the financial change in world economy and severe competition from other festivals/concerts as well as poor ticket sale.
