Since it began in 2013, the annual Hello! Project Hina Fes has featured solo performances from a handful of Hello! Project members chosen by lottery. Starting from 2015, special one-time shuffle units began to be featured, and were also chosen by lottery. Some years, the members of each unit are tasked with creating a name for the unit under which they performed and were credited with.
