History[edit | edit source]

The 2010/2011 school year Oha Girl unit (later named Oha Girl Maple) was formed in April 2010, following the graduation of the 2008-2010 Oha Girl unit, for the show Oha Suta. The unit initially consisted of Saki (Ogawa Saki of S/mileage), Erika (Tanaka Erika) and Shiori (Inoue Shiori).[1][2][3] As a tradition for every Oha Girl unit to have a challenge since 2001, the members of Oha Girl Maple were challenged to learn baton twirling.

On August 7, 2010, Oha Girl were the opening act for the Hello! Project 2010 Summer ~Fankora!~ show at Nakano Sun Plaza. They performed their original song "Morning Chime!!!".

On September 10, 2010, it was announced that the 2010/2011 Oha Girl unit would be named Oha Girl Maple.

On November 24, 2010, Oha Girl Maple released a collaboration single with S/mileage, titled My School March, under the hachama label. The single sold around 4,734 copies according to Oricon.

On August 24, 2011, Saki announce that she would graduated from S/mileage to live a normal life[4] and subsequently left Oha Girl Maple.[5][6] Following Ogawa's departure, Eripon (Ikuta Erina of Morning Musume) joined the group on August 25.[7][8][9][10]

On December 1, 2011, Shiori announced that Oha Girl Maple will be releasing the Christmas version of "Morning Chime!!!", titled "Morning Chance!!!" for the 2011 holiday season only. The single was available for purchase from December 1 to December 25.[11] The first 10,000 people to download the song were to get the single free of charge.

On March 27, 2012, Oha Girl Maple graduated from Oha Suta.[12][13][14] The group was replaced with a new Oha Suta group with an new line-up, named Oha Girl Chu! Chu! Chu!, beginning April 2012.
