Momoclo Chan Presents: Momoiro Clover Z Shiren no Nanaban Shoubu (ももクロChan Presents 「ももいろクローバーZ 試練の七番勝負」, Momoiro Clover Z Seven Battles of Ordeal) is a series of talk event of Momoiro Clover Z with various important figures from different backgrounds. The event was held on April 11 to April 17, 2011, just only one day after Akari Hayami's graduation concert.

The entire event was documented within three DVD releases in a DVD-Box set that released on January 25, 2012 under King Records. The event was popular enough to be followed by same talk event series in 2012 and 2013.


To overcome the withdrawal of Akari Hayami, biggest turning point of Momoiro Clover at that time, the girl was assigned into a series of talk battle event in a full week with various important figures. The event was for deepening the strength of "Z" with the goal to learn something and think for themselves. Their manager Akira Kawakami didn't want the members to be the kind of group that only do what they're told.[1][2]

The event was first announced in final concert of Momoclo Shinshun Spectacular Tour Mirai Bowl ga Yattekita on March 6, 2011 in Zepp Tokyo.[1] The talk event featured guests from various field including comedian Shinya Arino, business consultant Tetsuo Kaneko, professional wrestler Keiji Mutoh, singer songwritter Ichiro Mizuki among others. The entire talk events took place at Tokyo Kinema Club and Ryota Yamazato acted as the host and moderator.

In the 6th day of the talk event with Ichiro Mizuki, they made a surprise announcement of their first album (Battle and Romance), two accompanying singles (Z Densetsu ~Owarinaki Kakumei~ and D' no Junjou) and a national wide tour in Zepp music halls titled Momoclo Fantastic Tour 2011 Z de Ikutte Kimetanda Z!!. Those were the first three announcements they made after their name change.[3]


The topics and guests for the talk event is different for each day, except in the last day which is a participation in a live concert with 9mm Parabellum Bullet. Each day is titled with a different theme and referred as a VS match (as in the wrestling matches).
