Comment from Ogawa Saki[8]
Thank you for always supporting me.

As of 2011/08/27, Ogawa Saki, will graduate from S/mileage as well as Hello! Project.

Since our major debut last year in May, I have enjoyed every single day as part of S/mileage.

However, somewhere down in my heart, I felt there was a gap between myself and the S/mileage me. I have talked it over with the staff many times and have been constantly worrying about it, and with everyone working their hardest to move forward and myself still uncertain of things, I decided that it was not in the best interest of S/mileage and I will return to being just a normal girl.

I apologize for the last minute announcement.

While there may be feelings of sadness, S/mileage will always be a group with it’s trademark smile!

I’ll be working my hardest to end with a smile until my last event on 8/27, I know there isn’t a lot of time left but I hope you can support me!

The new members will power up S/mileage after I graduate so I hope you’ll continue to support them.

Thank you very much for all your support up til now.


S/mileage Ogawa Saki

On September 9, less than a month after the addition of the new sub-members, it was announced that sub-member Kosuga Fuyuka would be leaving S/mileage due to severe anemia.

On October 25, it was announced that Maeda Yuuka would retire from the entertainment industry on December 31st in order to concentrate, study, and prepare for a entrance exam for university.[13]

Comment from Maeda Yuuka[13]
Thank you for always supporting me.

I, Maeda Yuuka, as of 2011/12/31, will be graduating from S/mileage and Hello! Project.

Just the other day at our event, the 4 sub members became official members which made me really happy, but at the same time made me realize that it was this timing that I had to use to tell you all something very important.

Since becoming a high school student, I have been unable to keep up with my S/mileage work and school at the same time and it has bothered me a great deal. I started to think about my future and realized that my desire to attend a university had grown a lot over time. I was wondering if, at this rate, if I would be able to handle both school work and S/mileage, I was really only able to give a half-hearted effort on both things… and was always getting help from other people, and I really disliked that part about me. I thought to myself “Things aren’t going to work out if it keeps going like this”.

I need to work a lot harder if I want to attend a university. But that had always been just talk, up til now nothing had really changed…

If I let these feelings continue, it would not be fair to the other members, nor to all the fans that support me.

I thought a lot about it. I may not be very bright but I put all my energy into thinking about this… and came up with this as the only possible option.

As of now with the four new members joining, it has been a joy to spend every day with the members. To the original members, to the new members, and to all o

Thank you for you who have always supported me, I am very very grateful.

Although it may be sad, we have a new single featuring the 7 of us coming out on 12/28, and I will be working my hardest ever to make this the best one yet!

I am very grateful to so many people, and hope to really enjoy these remaining 2 months, and finish with a smile in the S/mileage way!

Please continue to support Smileage from here on after.

Group Name Origins[]


S/mileage was named by Tsunku. On May 7, 2009, he revealed the group's name to be "S/mileage".[4] He explained that the name "S/mileage" is taken from "Smile," "Mileage," and "Age," and that it means "the age of smiles." The name was later changed from romaji to the katakana reading "スマイレージ".


ANGERME (アンジュルム) was named by second generation member Nakanishi Kana. The name comes from a combination of the French words for ange (angel) and larme (tear).[96] Nakanishi explained that she wanted the members of ANGERME, the angels, to work together to achieve their goals, and once they reach them, be overcome with happiness and cry.

Activities Outside Japan[]

On January 28, 2018, ANGERME announced they would be holding their first overseas concert in Paris, France on June 3.[97] It was later announced in April 2018, that ANGERME would also hold their first Asia tour after their France concert: in South Korea on June 29, Hong Kong on June 30, and Taiwan on July 1.[98] To promote the concerts, they were the first Hello! Project group to hold Facebook and Twitter live Q&A sessions on May 20 and 21.[99][100]

On September 7, 2019, the group held their first concert in Mexico.[101] A series of Facebook live Q&As with ANGERME members were broadcasted as promotion for the concert,[102] beginning on May 23 with Wada Ayaka, who would not be in the concert due to her graduation from the group in June.[103] The second Q&A was held on June 16 with Takeuchi Akari, Kawamura Ayano, Oota Haruka, and Ise Layla;[104][105] the third was on July 3 with Nakanishi Kana, Katsuta Rina, and Kasahara Momona; and the fourth was on July 4 with Takeuchi, Murota Mizuki, and Funaki Musubu.[106][107] The fifth Q&A on July 23 was with Murota, Kawamura, and Morning Musume '19 guests Ishida Ayumi and Nonaka Miki; and the sixth on July 25 was with Kamikokuryo Moe, Kasahara, and Juice=Juice guests Takagi Sayuki and Miyamoto Karin.[108]

    • Their first three indies singles were released under the TNX indies label "Good Factory," but they were still signed to Up-Front at the time and were a part of Hello! Project.
    • The group originally consisted of four Hello Pro Kenshuusei members. As of February 2021, only 7 members of the group had not been a Kenshuusei before joining: Nakanishi Kana, Kosuga Fuyuka, Tamura Meimi, Kamikokuryo Moe, Ise Layla, Kawana Rin, and Matsumoto Wakana.
    • When the second generation was added, the group had the same number of members as Morning Musume until the graduation of Ogawa Saki.
    • Before joining the group, Tamura Meimi was in the Shugo Chara! Musical alongside Maeda Yuuka (who played Amu), Fukuda Kanon (who played Nadeshiko) and Wada Ayaka (who had a minor role).
    • In 2011, S/mileage added 5 new members, but lost 3 at the same time (Maeda Yuuka, Ogawa Saki, and Kosuga Fuyuka). This is the most gained and lost for the group.
    • They are the second group in Hello! Project to have an official "generation" joining after the group's debut, the first being Morning Musume.
    • After Maeda Yuuka's graduation, the remaining 1st Generation was called AyaKanon until Fukuda Kanon's graduation in November 2015.[109]
    • The 2nd Generation is called America (A→Akari, Me→Meimi, Ri→Rina, Ca(Ka) →Kana).[110]
    • They are the first group in Hello! Project to have performed in all 47 prefectures.[111]
    • In a interview in 2015, they declared war on Morning Musume '15, aiming to be the top group in Hello! Project.
    • During their time as S/mileage, they almost always wore short skirts as a part of their image.
      • The sub-members wore longer skirts than the 1st gen to show a rank within the group.
    • Popular actress Yu Aoi is a huge ANGERME fan and says that she loves all the members. She’s a “hako-oshi” who does not have one favorite member and says she likes the balance of all the members.
    • Wada Ayaka is the first Hello Pro Kenshuusei/Egg to have become Hello! Project leader.
    • Wada Ayaka is the first Hello Project leader who is not actually the oldest member in Hello Project. (Incidentally, Juice=Juice’s Miyazaki Yuka is older than Wada Ayaka).
    • With the addition of the 9th generation, they are the first generational group to have 8 generations in the group at the same time (2nd-9th).
      • They are also the first generational group to have 8 consecutive generations in the group at the same time.
    • ANGERME is the group with the most consecutive years of generations additions, from 2014-2021 (8 years).
