Rino Fukuyama and Mizuki Kirihara have been announced as members, both having former idol experience. It’s unclear how many members the group will have in total, but more details are expected to be revealed in the coming months.
“I’m Rino Fukuyama, also known as Rinomaru, and I’m happy to announce that I’ll be a member of a new idol group from KAWAII LAB. It still feels like a dream, and I’m so excited to work in a totally new environment.
Lessons have already started, and seeing the incredible potential of the other members has me so excited to see what’s to come. Honestly, I think we’re going to be one of the strongest groups out there, so be sure to stay tuned!
I’m looking forward to taking on all kinds of new challenges. We’re all going to make our dreams come true, so please support us!”
“I’m so happy that I’ll be an idol in this new environment with these wonderful members.
I hope everyone will support me as I do what I love and strive to become more expressive and strong.
We’re getting ready to show you so many different sides of ourselves, and we’ll be sure to never lose our sense of gratitude.
I’ll pour everything I have into this and will make my dreams come true, and in the future, I want to show those who support me so many unique things!”

“I’m so pleased to announce that a new group is on the way from KAWAII LAB. As always, I’ll do my very best to make KAWAII LAB the best it can be–a place where these girls can be serious about their idol careers and bring audiences the biggest possible thrills. Between IDOLATER, FRUITS ZIPPER, and this new group, I hope you’re looking forward to what’s coming from KAWAII LAB!”
