Biography

Japan (2009 – present)

S/mileage (スマイレージ) is a Japanese pop group under the Hello! Project umbrella. The group had its indie debut in June 2009 with the single “aMa no jaku” (ぁまのじゃく) and appeared as backdancers in 真野恵里菜’s music videos and performances. In February 2010, producer Tsunku challenged the group to collect 10 000 smiles hereby launching an Internet campaign in which fans had to send their picture to the group to be glued by the girls on a mosaic. The challenge result was announced at the end of their first Joint Concert with Erina Mano; S/mileage received over 16 000 pictures from around the world earning them a major debut in May 2010 with the single “Yumemiru Fifteen” (夢見る 15歳).

On the 30th of December, 2010 S/mileage won the 52nd Japan Record Award in the category of “Best New Artist”

On May 29, 2011 Tsunku announced an audition to find new members for S/mileage. On August 14, 2011, five new sub-members were announced in the last leg of the Hello! Project 2011 Summer ~Nippon no Mirai wa WOW WOW Live~ tour: Nakanishi Kana, Kosuga Fuyuka, and Tamura Meimi, along with two former Hello! Pro Egg members, Takeuchi Akari and Katsuta Rina.

On August 23, 2011, Ogawa Saki announced suddenly that she would be graduating from the group and from Hello! Project on August 27 after the summer concert in Nagoya to return to a normal middle school life.

    Yeah I don't think Dawa and Kanyon are leaving yet. I think they'll stick around for at least 3 or 4 more singles

    Their first song as Angerme is really good. I'm impressed, and hopeful.

    I don't really like using katakana, but アンジュルム looks better than ANGERME...

    i'm gonna use アンジュルム because i can't help but read "ANGERME" as the English words "anger me", which is hardly a name for an idol group. at least when I see アンジュルム i see "a-n-juu-ru-mu".

    @Arche-JoIyO, I think I am going to use "アンジュルム" because "ANGERME" looks... stupid as fuck. Slightly amusing but mostly stupid as all hell.

    Which is the correct tag for their new songs then? ANGERME or アンジュルム?

    Quoting a Frenchie: "I'm French and I read it as an germe the way you would pronounce "germ". And an sounds like "un" which would give "Un germe" as their group name... Can someone lend me some sanitizer? ANGERME= a germ in french pronunciation. double fail."

    This was on the wiki: It is not meant to be "Anger Me", but a combination of French words meaning "angel tear". Ange + Larme = ANGERME. Based on the French, I believe the pronunciation would approximately seem like "ahn-jarm" to most English speakers. The kana version of the name is "アンジュルム", which in a straight romanization would come out "Anjurumu".

    Name change? What's the point? I honestly don't think S/mileage would flop without Ayaka and Kanon.
