Seeing them get so excited over such a simple video is pretty damn endearing.

From their official channel: the entire "∞ Lives Change & Evolution" concert (about two hours), as it was performed on April 16 at Shinjuku BLAZE…



This is to promote the current "Way of Our Life" tour final on September 15 — only 15 days remain with the seven original members.

Training for their first public performance…



Performing "Uppercut!" at @JAM EXPO 2017…



They are now officially known as Up Up Girls (ProWres).

This is getting silly, in my opinion. They're diluting their brand with these sideshows. Yeah, I know the seniors themselves actually did some wrestling, but that was years ago. They're supposed to be the queens of the indie idols now. I can only hope they're doing this in order to reinforce the main group in anticipation of more graduations, and that these subgroups are essentially UUG's version of kenshuusei.

I think it's good that UUG is expanding their empire into two new groups. It's similar to how Morning Musume had Country Musume and Coconuts Musume under their wings. UUG is pretty much the Morning Musume of the UP FRONT CREATE performers, arguably the most well known and successful out of all of them. So between UUG(2) and UUG(ProWres), the group can expand themselves into more diverse audiences which will in turn give their management teams more money to spend all across the board. I think it's a smart idea and I think that it's being handled very well on top of that.

Minami Sengoku and Ayano Sato graduated Friday night at the "Way of Our Life" tour finale at Zepp Tokyo…



Now, from their official channel, a video — a reposted concert VTR, I think — to introduce the new, 5-nin group and what they'll be doing over the next several months…



A new project (no details yet) on Sep 23, a live performance at the Korean Music Festival (KMF2017) on Sep 28, a new single on Nov 28, a live house tour, and something big next year.

Also, comments from Minami and Ayano and a smash-cut retrospective.

It feels like it's been such a long time since they updated the UUG YouTube banner, I'm looking forward to whatever they do with it now that they need to get it swapped out for just the five remaining girls.
