Life In The Group

Upon joining the group, members are moved into a dorm in downtown Tokyo near Hello! Project Fantasy's main building is, rooms are assorted by generation or by number of people in the group and it changes at times of new additions or when people graduate/leave.

Between single/album promotions and before their comebacks/training members are given the free time in which the girls can go back to their home prefectures to rest or to go on vacation. Members are informed in January before their begin their new year promotions of when they will release singles and when they will have their tours and events to plan ahead.

If members are still in middle school and high school, they are moved from their original school and moved to one of several middle schools or high schools in Tokyo that accomandate idol life. For example when they are currently promoting songs/albums or on tours, they are given online classes so they do not fall behind.

While in most idol groups the role of leader is to just be their for the members and to not do much, the leader of Genki Girls Club! is quiet important. Shiho Nozomi said that it is the leaders job to make sure that the girls do not fight with each other and to respect each other, as well as helping management in picking when to release songs or albums and when to go on tour and where they should have concerts in which prefecture. As well as being the teacher to show them how to behave and act as idols. The sub-leaders help the leader in these situations as they are being taught in mind that they will be the next leader.

Behind the group is a team of a total of 58 people, 6 managers (one for each generation), 5 choreographers, 3 composers, 2 lyricists, 20 coordinators, 2 fitness instructors, and 30 bodyguards.

Several former members since graduating have now joined the group in the background to help the group:

  • 1st Gen:
    • Shiho Nozomi: Whole group manager
    • Fujii Miki: Vocal Teacher
    • Inoue Mizuki: Vocal Teacher
    • Ogawa Luca: Dance Teacher
  • 2nd Gen:
    • Shizuka Ami: Dance Teacher
