Upcoming (アプカミ), or Upcomi, is a web show featuring UP-FRONT GROUP artist recording sessions, round-table discussions, and non-Hello! Project performances. It is uploaded onto the official YouTube channel, which it took over from and replaced MUSIC+.
As of March 20, 2019, 30-minute episodes are uploaded every Thursday at 19:00 JST.
The first episode was uploaded January 29, 2016. When it began, the show was uploaded in a weekly episodic format on Fridays at 21:00 JST. Matsubara Takeshi, Okada Marina, and Hasegawa Moemi were also the the regular MCs until the April 2017 renewal, after which each episode had two different female artists as the MCs. To accommodate people's viewing habits, the hour-length episodes and MCs were dropped after episode #128 in favor of uploading segmented videos on weekdays at 19:00 JST starting from August 2018. The show reverted to 30-minute episodes on March 21, 2019, with an hour-long livestream aired on March 12 ahead of the renewal to discuss and preview the changes.
On April 15, 2020, it was announced that Upcoming and tiny tiny would temporarily cease airing due to the government's declaration of emergency following the spread of the coronavirus getting worse. Instead, segments from the two shows were incorporated into a special compilation uploaded to the Hello! Project Station YouTube channel for the time being. Episodes of all three web shows resumed on August 12, 2020.
