Trivia[]

  • Sasaki Rikako is the first member to join the group that is born in the 21st century.
  • 4th gen is the first generation to have joined after the groups renaming.
  • 2010, 2012, and 2013 are the only years in which no new members were added.
  • 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2018 are the only years in which no members had graudated.
  • At the time of Tamura Meimi's graduation on May 30, 2016, the second generation was the longest lasting full generation of the group at 4 years, 7 months, 15 days.
  • Starting with Wada Ayaka's graduation in June 2019, there has been a graduation from the group every three months: Katsuta Rina's in September 2019, Nakanishi Kana's in December 2019, and Murota Mizuki's in March 2020. Furthermore, Funaki Musubu was supposed to follow the pattern with her graduation set in June 2020, but it was postponed to December of that year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Kawamura Ayano is the oldest member to join the group at 17 years old.
  • Nakanishi Kana, Kosuga Fuyuka, Tamura Meimi, Kamikokuryo Moe, Ise Layla, Kawana Rin and Matsumoto Wakana are the only members to have not been apart of Hello! Project prior to joining the group.
  • Sasaki Rikako, Kawamura Ayano, and Oota Haruka were all previously members of other idol groups prior to becoming trainees.
  • The 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 10th generations are the only generations that are composed entirely of members in Hello Pro Kenshuusei.

Notes[]

  • ^ On October 16, 2011, all sub-members who remained in the group at that time were promoted to full membership, becoming the 2nd generation.
  • ^ Kosuga Fuyuka was still featured in the single after her departure from the group.
  • ^ ^ ^ Aikawa Maho was unable to be featured in the 23rd and 24th singles due to her receiving medical treatment for panic disorder during the production periods.[1]
  • ^ ^ While both Fukuda's first and Tamura's second member color are translated to purple in the west, Fukuda's purple lean towards a light purple, while Tamura's purple is more of a traditional purple color.
  • ^ While Watashi wo Tsukuru no wa Watashi / Zenzen Okiagarenai SUNDAY was released after Katsuta Rina's graduation, she is still featured and credited in the Regular A Edition of the single.
  • ^ Oota Haruka did not participate in the single, Kagiriaru Moment / Mirror Mirror, due to her activities within the group being temporarily suspended for rule violations.
