HoneyWorks, aka Haniwa, is a circle consisting mainly of the composers Gom and shito, and the illustrator Yamako. The guitarist Oji (Kaizoku Ou), the illustrators Rocoru (in 2013) and Mogelatte, the video producer Ziro and the pianist cake (the latter three joining in May 2014) are also part of the group as support members. Later on they acquired the drummer Nakanishi in 2017. However, Rocoru graduated from the group in 2019.

Some of their most popular songs include "Suki Kirai", "Hatsukoi no Ehon" and "Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu". Their music style consists mostly of positive rocky songs.

In January 2014 they had their first major debut, with the album "Zutto Maekara Suki Deshita.", which ranked in fourth place on Oricon. In May 2014, the start-up of "CHiCO with HoneyWorks" was announced. Sometime in early 2019, the circle began to include subunits: s×c, a duo comprised of shito and cake; and HoneyMonster, comprised of Gom (Kouto), cake, and Nakanishi. The circle also created a number of fictional idols, such as LIP×LIP and Dolce.

In addition, ten light novels, based on the Confession Executive Committee Love Series songs "Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu", "Yakimochi no Kotae", "Hatsukoi no Ehon", "Ima ni Suki Naru.", "Koi-Iro ni Sake", "Kinyoubi no Ohayou", "Heart no Shuchou", "Ijiwaru na Deai", "Boku ga Namae wo Yobu Hi", and "Daikirai na Hazu Datta." have been released so far. A short novella about the song "Watashi, Idol Sengen" was also included with a CHiCO with Honeyworks album. Light novels for HoneyWorks' other songs do exist as well; the Love and Hate Trilogy ("Nakimushi Kareshi", "Suki-Kirai", "Hajimari no Sayonara") and "Sekai wa Koi ni Ochiteiru" and its sequel "Koi no Chord" both received one.
