I'm surprised there was no thread for this rather long-lived group (though musically short)




The group was formed in 2005 with (Maeda Yuuka, Arihara Kanna, Furukawa Konatsu, Nota Arisa, and Oose Kaede) to promote environmental awareness!


Though shortly after, Arihara left to join C-ute and she was replaced with Mori Saki




(Left to right)


(Oose, Furukawa, Maeda, Mori, Noto)


These 5 would go onto release their only single "Minna no Ki" on 9.16.2006 then would lose Oose as she graduates to join THE Possible and was replaced by Yutoku Ayumi




(Left to right) 


(Noto, Furukawa, Mori, Yutoku, Maeda)


Then a short time after, Yutoku left the Eggs and Saho Akari took her place




(Left to Right)


(Mori, Saho, Noto, Maeda, Furukawa)


Then the group would end up going on hiatus for about two years until they were reunited but shuffled quite a bit!




The group was brought back, but they were separated into "Teams" with the following


Team Ohana-Bahakettai!! - Sengoku Minami, Katsuta Rina, Furukawa Konatsu, Kaneko Rie

Team Midories - Arai Manami, Saho Akari, Satou Ayano, Kikkawa Yuu

Team Catch the Nature - Okai Asuna, Kitahara Sayaka, Sainen Mia, Sano Kaori (UFA Egg)

Team Genki Moriranger: Fukumura Mizuki, Mori Saki, Maeda Irori


Though the group never released any music during this reboot, the group just fizzled out til the graduaion of Kaneko Rie

I almost forgot about them! Probably because they released almost none music (similar to Sina).

Some more info I had laying around:

Tomoiki debuted at Morning Musume's environmental Culture Festival 2005. They belong to "Hand in Hand" tree-planting support squad, which is a part of NPO corporation - Plant A Tree Plant Love.

I had only known the original one-group incarnations before a friend told me that they formed teams again later (including Sano Kaori. I remember that some fans mistakingly assumed that she was a H!P Egg too).
