SCK GIRLS 2015
Kesennuma, Miyagi, Japan
SCK GIRLS (formerly known as SCK45, full name Sanchi Chokusou Kesennuma) is a Japanese pop idol group from Kesennuma, Miyagi. The group was formed after the devastating 2011 Tohoku Earthquake in hopes of bringing smiles back to the community. They are signed to Takumi Koubou. The group had a sub-unit called "SCK KIDS" which housed their trainees until 2017.
Following the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, insurance worker and cancer patient Abe Kenichi was inspired to start a local idol group. In early October, he began advertising the group, then called "SCK45", in newspapers.
On November 3, the group officially debuted.
On April 1, the group was renamed "SCK GIRLS", and they released their debut single Arigatou no Kotoba / ReGenerasion.
In the Spring, Abe Kenichi handed over group management to Rise.
On July 6, they released their second single You&Me / Saigo no Uta.
On August 17, Abe passed away due to cancer.
