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.[1]

The first episode was uploaded January 29, 2016.[2] 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.[3] 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.[4] 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.[1]

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 COVID-19 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.[5] Episodes of all three web shows resumed on August 12, 2020.[6]
