PalmSugar was a Japanese idol unit based in Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi, Japan. Season 1 was produced by Kobayashi Azusa.




In March, the search for members for PalmSugar started.

In September, they made their debut as an idol unit with three members. Their purpose was to promote the development of the performing arts culture of Yamaguchi.

They stopped updating their Twitter accounts in November[1], and their website was taken down in December.[2]

On December 7, Weekly Yamaguchi News held a phone interview with Nanase Mina and Suwa Kobato. They said PalmSugar was going to start promoting in February under a new system. Two live schedules were also announced: Asian Beauty Collection Vol. 3, 4 on December 8, and Shimonseki -mori Ageru zo! on December 14. Both apperance s were at Shimonoseki RedLine. They performed several cover songs, as well as two original songs; Cutie Tamarind and Shabondama.[3] [4]


In May their official Twitter account stopped updating, and a new one was opened in July. They also got a new website that listed six new members (season 2), with the three original members gone.

In June they released their first single, Cutie Tamarind, in July their second single, Natsu Iro☆Lemon Candy, and in August their third single, melty kiss _xxx.


In March, an announcement for season 4 was made, but no new members joined the group.

In July, Ariyama Moeka joined the group.

On December 23, Haruna Shiori, Haruna Arisu, and Ariyama Moeka graduated and started the idol group Yumemitai.


In January, their official site stated they were planning a large member recruitment, but the project seems to have been scrapped as nothing happened since then and all the members have graduated.
