History[edit]

2005-10: Origin and debut[edit]

In September 2005, 9nine was formed of Sayaka Nishiwaki, Uki Satake, Azusa Matsuzawa, Miwako Wagatsuma, Rubi Katō, Marie Ashida, Mai Yoshida, Midori Yamaoka, and Moe Miura. They released their debut single "Sweet Snow" in 2006.

2010-present: Restart and popularity[edit]

The band changed its music style from typical idol pop to electropop. The group's 2012 single "Shōjo Traveller" became its first to reach the top 10 on the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart.[1] The self-titled album 9nine, that soon followed, debuted at number 8.[2] On 27 February 2019, it was announced on their official website that the group would be pausing all activities and going on an indefinite hiatus.
