The original members graduated from Hello Pro Egg in 2010 and became full members of Hello! Project.

2004-2009: Prior to Formation

In June 2004, Wada Ayaka, Maeda Yuuka, Fukuda Kanon and Ogawa Saki all joined Hello Pro Egg along with 28 other girls. Prior to debuting, Wada, Maeda and Fukuda were members of the group Shugo Chara Egg!.

2009: Formation

S/mileage was announced on Tsunku's blog on April 4[1] and was given its name on May 8.[2][3] The members were revealed to be Wada Ayaka, Maeda Yuuka, Fukuda Kanon and Ogawa Saki, and that Wada would be the leader.

S/mileage's first indie single, "aMa no Jaku," was released at the Hello Pro Kenshuusei Nakano STEP! concert on June 7.

On November 23, during Hello Pro Kenshuusei's Shinjin Kouen concert, a video message from Tsunku was played for S/mileage. Tsunku announced that they would be graduating from Hello Pro Kenshuusei and would be making their major debut in 2010. Initially when the group was first formed, Tsunku had said that in order to make the best group possible, additional members might be added or current members might be removed. Wada, Maeda, Fukuda, and Ogawa were confirmed to be the definite line-up of S/mileage. Their graduation from Hello Pro Kenshuusei and debut would take place on March 27, 2010.

Some time in December 2009, the group's official name was changed to the katakana version of their name (スマイレージ), though it is still romanized as S/mileage.

2010: Major Debut

On February 28th, Tsunku announced that in order for the group to debut, 10,000 people had to send a picture of themselves smiling before March 25th. If the goal was not achieved, their debut might be postponed or even cancelled. Pictures could be sent in on the campaign website.[4] The results would be announced on April 3rd. If successful, they would debut in May.

The girls gathered 16,000 pictures 3,110 of them were gathered by the members themselves. The record belongs to Fukuda Kanon, for 2-3 hours she gathered 135 pictures. S/mileage officially debuted with the single Yumemiru Fifteen.

S/mileage members Maeda Yuuka, Wada Ayaka, and Fukuda Kanon provided voices for the anime Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri. Their song, Otona ni Narutte Muzukashii!!!, was was used as one of the ending themes for that anime.

S/mileage appeared as the opening act at fellow Hello! Project unit ℃-ute's concert C-ute Concert Tour 2010 Haru ~Shocking LIVE~ on March 20.

On April 3, they performed a joint concert with Mano Erina, at which Tsunku announced that the girls would indeed make their major debut, and revealed the completed mosaic.

Their first major single, Yumemiru Fifteen, was released on May 26 and their first tour took place in October.

In late August, S/mileage's first studio album was announced and it was later released on December 8.

2011: Additions and Departures

In 2011, S/mileage celebrated their first anniversary.

In honor of their first anniversary, Tsunku announced that there would be an audition, S/mileage Shin Member Boshuu!, seeking up to six new members, and his plans to have "sub-members," and the auditions would begin in June.

On August 10, S/mileage's single Uchouten LOVE sold 29,328 copies in its first week, making it the highest first-week sales by S/mileage at that time.

It was announced that S/mileage, along with ℃-ute, would be on 2011's "24H TV Marathon."

On August 14, five new members were announced in the last part of the Hello! Project 2011 Summer ~Nippon no Mirai wa WOW WOW Live~ tour: Nakanishi Kana, Kosuga Fuyuka, and Tamura Meimi, along with two former Hello Pro Kenshuusei members, Takeuchi Akari and Katsuta Rina, as sub-members.

On August 24, it was announced on the S/mileage website that Ogawa Saki would graduate from S/mileage and Hello! Project on August 27, 2011, at the live event of Uchouten LOVE at Higashi Betsuin Hall in Nagoya.[5]

Comment from Ogawa Saki[5]
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

Ogawa graduated from S/mileage and Hello! Project on August 27 without any ceremony or special concert, due to the last minute announcement, at S/mileage's event for their latest single as a 4-member unit, "Uchouten LOVE."

Soon after the addition of the new sub-members and the graduation of Ogawa, on September 9, S/mileage announced that sub-member Kosuga Fuyuka would be leaving S/mileage due to severe anemia, and would later join Hello Pro Kenshuusei after her long recovery.[6]

On September 15, S/mileage’s official YouTube channel announced that S/mileage’s September 18 evening concert for their 2011 Fall Concert Tour ~Gakushuu no Chou Mini Skirt~ wouls be streamed live on YouTube at 6PM JST.

On September 18, it was announced that on October 16, they would announce which sub-member would become an official S/mileage member through a S/mileage photo campaign for the sub-members.[7] On October 16, at the release event for “Tachiagirl” at the Kanagawa Yokohama Bridge, it was announced that all four sub-members passed and became full members of S/mileage.[8]

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.[9]

Comment from Maeda Yuuka[9]
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.

The name comes from a combination of the French words for ange (angel) and larme (tear).[15] 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.

  • Their first indies single, "aMa no Jaku," was released under the TNX indies label "Good Factory," but they were still signed to Up-Front and are a part of Hello! Project.
  • The group originally consisted of four Hello Pro Kenshuusei members. As of November 2015, only 4 members of S/mileage/ANGERME were not a part of Hello Pro Kenshuusei before joining: Nakanishi KanaKosuga FuyukaTamura Meimi, and Kamikokuryo Moe.
  • 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 a "generation" joining after the group's debut, the first being Morning Musume.
  • The current 1st Generation is called AyaKanon.[16]
  • The 2nd Generation is called America (A→Akari, Me→Meimi, Ri→Rina, Ca(Ka) →Kana).[17]
  • They are the first group in Hello! Project to have performed in all 47 prefectures.[18]
  • In a interview in 2015, they declared war on Morning Musume '15 and aim 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.
