Group Formation

In the anime, the unit was formed by drawing lots.

In real life, the unit was formed in phases

  1. March 2011, the three unit leaders, Honoka Kosaka, Umi Sonoda and Eli Ayase were revealed with this key visual. People were then given five sets of possible unit compositions, and asked to vote for which members should belong in each leader's sub-unit.
  2. April 2011, the new unit compositions were revealed, and people were asked to submit names for them
  3. May 2011, the chosen unit names were revealed.


Because of Umi's image of being 大和撫子 (Yamato Nadeshiko lit. the traditional Japanese embodiment of a perfect woman), many Japanese-style names were submitted.

lily white's name was meant to symbolize the austere and pure feel exhibited by the group.

Other highlighted submissions include 天然小町 (Tennen Komachi lit. Natural Belle) and 花鳥風月 (Kachō Fūgetsu lit. Flower, Bird, Wind, and Moon, an idiom for the Beauties of Nature).
