S/mileage Group Name Officially Changed To ANGERME
The group formerly known as S/mileage has officially change its name to ANGERME.

The name change announcement came during the group's final leg of its "S/mileage Live Tour 2014 Aki ~FULL CHARGE~" on December 17.

ANGERME was conceived of by group member Kana Nakanishi. It combines the French words angel (ange) and tear (larme). The name is meant to convey the idea of the group being angels with hearts so kind that it brings people to tears.

The group's name change is part of its larger efforts to reinvent itself as it enters its 3rd generation. 3 new members, Rikako Sasaki, Mizuki Murota and Maho Aikawa, were recently added to the group's line up as part of its transition into the future.

ANGERME has announce a new single, titled "Taiki Bansei / Otome no Gyakushuu", which is set for release on February 4. This will be the group's first single using its new name and members.

Original group members Ayaka Wada and Kanon Fukuda came up with the idea to add new members to the group and change their name to prepare for their eventual graduation. The two wanted to ensure the group's longevity after they leave and looked towards Morning Musume for inspiration on how to achieve this.
