ANGERME (アンジュルム), formerly known as S/mileage (スマイレージ), is a Japanese pop group under the Hello! Project umbrella. S/mileage was first announced as an indies unit in 2009 with the single “aMa no jaku” (ぁまのじゃく). The original members graduated from Hello Pro Egg and became full members of Hello! Project in 2010. The original 1st generation members included Wada Ayaka, Maeda Yuuka, Fukuda Kanon and Ogawa Saki, with Wada as the leader.
The second generation joined in August 2011 as Sub-Members before debuting in the group as full members in October of the same year. The 2nd generation consisted of Nakanishi Kana, Kosuga Fuyuka, Tamura Meimi, Takeuchi Akari and Katsuta Rina.
In 2011, 1st generation members Ogawa Saki and Maeda Yuuka, along with 2nd generation member Kosuga Fukuya, had graduated from S/mileage at separate times.
In September 2014 , S/mileage announced that the group would change its name and welcome new members from Hello! Pro Kenshuusei as the 3rd generation of the group. On October 4, three new members were announced as 3rd generation members: Murota Mizuki, Aikawa Maho and Sasaki Rikako.
In December 2014, S/mileage's new name was revealed as "ANGERME". The announcement was made on the last day of their 2014 Autumn Tour, S/mileage Live Tour 2014 Aki ~FULL CHARGE~. The name was proposed by 2nd generation member Nakanishi Kana, and comes from a combination of the French words for angel (ange) and tear (larme).
