The first generation auditions were then announced to start an all-male, eight member group. The winners would then be announced via a LOVE Musume fall tour the following year.

Their first album will then be released the month after the tour has ended. However, before the group's first generation members' debut during the tour, a Hello! Project fanatic had leaked some images, names, and their profiles; and also some trivia were released on the internet. The leaked information was soon confirmed as 'official' by Tsunku himself on his Twitter page; he then stated, "...Well, at least the new group has caused a 'spark of interest' amongest Hello!
