The creation of AKB48's third sister group was announced in July 2010. Akimoto Yasushi revealed that he would continue his plan for a franchise of idol groups in Japan, by forming a group in Namba. Auditions were held in August 2010, and were broadcast on the TV show "Starhime Sagashitarou", which featured members of SKE48. The 26 girls who passed the auditions were introduced in October 2010 at AKB48's Tokyo Aki Matsuri.
