On March 1, shortly after Watanabe announced her passing on the leadership to Kosuga Rin, Tsunku announced that Aisaka alongside Koizumi Ichigo, Kosuga Kirino, Hirose Kana, Uehara Yuna, Mizusawa Chiho, Asakawa Sakura, Shirakawa Nanami and Kushieda Mai were to make the sixth DreamS group, called "Groovy Candy!". It was to focus on a cute, upbeat style. It was also announced that she was to be leader as Tsunku thought that she would be the most reliable out of the members (since she is always cool and composed).
