Morning Musume and Hello! Project leader Fukumura Mizuki made a surprise appearance at the end of the Hello! Project Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2021 3gatsu ~Yell~ show on March 7, 2021 and made several announcements.
- A new Hello! Project group will be formed sometime this year (2021).
-- The current members of the Hello Pro Kenshuusei unit are confirmed as members.
-- More members will be added before the end of the year.

(The two additional announcements that did not involve the forming of the new group have been posted in the Kenshuusei Recitals 2021 thread, located here.)
★ Yonemura Kirara
★ Ishiguri Kanami
★ Kubota Nanami
★ Saito Madoka

:omg:  :omg:  :omg:  :omg:

I'm so happy for them!!!

Kirara and Kanami's perseverance pays off!

Glad they are all going to debut together.

I was a little worried about Madoka because she was too old for the J=J/TF audition.

A new group was going to be her best chance the debut.

Fan report, translated by A @ Jplop:


While the trainees were confused because the instrumental wasn't playing during the last song, Makoto appeared on stage, followed by Fukumura, and they had a live "report".

Kubota-san was already crying when her name was called, Yonemura-san was holding back tears, but Ishiguri-san, Saito-san were all in tears.
The tears running down their cheeks were beautiful!

They deserve the new group rather than being added to an existing one! These girls are quite good as they are and I'm not surprised we're finally getting a new group!


I feel some H!P Audition applicants may be joining this group after going thru 1-3mos of being in KSS after their auditions


The "new group" announcement feels so vague though. Given the flexibility of the BEYOOOOONDS concept as a supergroup, are they going to be added in there as a new unit group or is it really a new group altogether?

I don't know whether I should be happy or worried. I mean BEYOOOONDS's 2 singles have high sales, but I predict that more money should be poured to promote them more and more to fans as of right now. There are two main points: how high is the probability for this new group to get a major debut? Does the company have enough budget to get this group to major debut? I agree that they have little chance to shine if they are chosen as audition winners instead, but making a new group at this time is a risky business here.

Awww yes I’m so happy they’ve finally decided to form a new group! It’ll be interesting to see who they add. Big sigh of relief for Kirara and the other girls, especially Madoka!

Touki: I wouldn't worry. UF just moved most of their offices to a building of much newer construction in a more known business district, they seem just fine financially. And I don't think it's very likely the new group gets a major debut before next year anyway; I'm guessing they'll take most of this year to finalize the lineup, slowly release details, and generally promote the idea/members, and there's always the chance they start with indie releases.

I think this is "Ichioka Factory" all over again: some of these girls were probably thinking about leaving (group auditions often lead older KSS / those who fail it to reconsider their status), so the purpose of this announcement is to get them to stay so that they will debut.

I think BEYOOOOONDS is at full capacity rn so it's going to be an entirely new group. :)

Congratulations to the debuting members! I'm looking forward to what kind of music they'll release. We do need a cute group, but the girls don't strike me as such. Maybe a more dance based EDM group, now that MM matures?


I, for one, welcome our new 15ki overlords.

Announcement on the official site.



Unless I'm mistaken, it says they're looking to form a "new group following BEYOOOOONDS" (so after/separate, no need to worry about that), and that they plan to add members and decide details within the year.

Finally! I was worried that some girls from the unit leave before this annoucement, and maybe this is another reason for the J=J and TF audition, maybe they add their strongest or most popular trainees yo this new group. I'M HYPPING.

My prediction for the new group will be a group with an "idol-y" image that currently only Tsubaki Factory comes close to being......all others being so performance oriented (MM=precision, anju=dynamic, JJ=vocals, Beyo=theatrics) that they hardly fit the category of "idol" anymore. The one thing H!P is missing is a group that would be equally at home working in a maid cafe. And Kirara Factory already seems to be like that.
