To everyone who supports E-girls.
Thank you for always warmly supporting E-girls.
We’re announcing E-girls will be in a new organization known as “E.G. Family”.
In April of 2011, E-girls started as an entertainment project where the members of Dream, Happiness, and Flower joined together as one and began activities to realize dreams on a large stage.
Thanks to everyone who supported us for 6 years, E-girls gained valuable experience and fulfilled many dreams.
In order to make everyone happy, the 19 members repeatedly discussed what the future of E-girls should be, their own dreams, what kind of entertainment should be created, and how to make E-girls even more brilliant.
In order to deliver even better entertainment to everyone, and to make each member’s dream come true, E-girls has decided to participate in a new structure the members themselves call “E.G. Family”.
As for LDH, we respect all of the members’ decisions and all of us will support each and every one of their dreams.
We look forward to your continued support in the future of E-girls, Dream Ami, Dance Earth Party, Happiness, Flower, ShuuKaRen, SudannaYuzuYully, and E.G.Family.

About E.G. Family
In order for E-girls to shine in the future, we will tell you about the new structure known as “E.G. Family”, decided upon by the 19 members of E-girls.
In April 2011, the three groups of Dream, Happiness, and Flower gathered together and began as an entertainment project.
Thanks to everyone’s warm support, we have been able to fulfill many drams, including a 3rd arena tour and our 4th consecutive appearance on Kouhaku.
Six years have passed since we began, and we talked about what to do to keep E-girls shining. As a result of multiple discussions with the 19 members, sharing each other’s dreams and respecting them, we decided to start a new organization.
The future “E-girls” will expand into a three dimensional artist group known as “E.G. Family” and evolve as a girls entertainment project.
E.G. Family includes seven artists: E-girls, Dream Ami, DANCE EARTH PARTY, Happiess, Flower, ShuuKaRen, and SudannaYuzuYully.
E-girls, which has been working as a “project” so far will start anew as one team of 11 members.
Everyone in E.G. Family will use what has been gained in experience with E-girls so far, so that everyone’s dreams will come true. And seeking a new glow, we will further evolve.
Al the members will work with their full power so that the entertainment delivered by E.G. Family will be better than ever.
Anticipate our new form of evolution, and we look forward to your continued support.

The E-girls Pyramid
Until now the lineup was a pyramid structure, with everyone aiming for E-girls, but now it’s a three-dimensional place called E.G. Family where all groups co-exist.
Since the pyramid is no more, young girls in Rabbits, Bunnies, and others will work in “EXPG LAB”.
“EXPG LAB” is EXPG students selected and put into a dance team and vocal unit, with occasional lineup changes. It is a group that aims at being artists while challenging various possibilities and opportunities.
It is unknown at this time whether there will be auditions for E.G.Family.
The short version? E-girls is basically EXILE now, with some members from each group as members. E.G. Family is like EXILE TRIBE, where all the groups are connected, and they may participate in future activities and tours the way EXILE TRIBE does.
