S/mileage

スマイレージ

On April 4, 2009, Tsunku announced on his blog that a new group consisting of Hello! Pro Egg members would be formed. He later revealed that the members would be Ayaka Wada, Yuuka Maeda and Kanon Fukuda, all formerly of Shugo Chara Egg!, as well as fellow Egg Saki Ogawa, and announced that Ayaka would be the leader. A month later, on May 7, 2009, he revealed the group's name to be "S/mileage"; the name is a portmanteau of the English words "smile", "mileage", and "age", and together the name means "the age of smiles".
