Pretty Rhythm Idol Group Prizmmy to Disband Next March

Prism Mates also disbanding after 6-year run

Prizmmy☆, the four-member dance and vocal unit created for the Pretty Rhythm teleivision anime franchise, announced on their streamed SHOWROOM special on Friday that they will disband at the end of next March. Prizmmy☆'s sister trainee unit Prism☆Mates (pictured below) will also disband at the same time.

The members of Prizmmy☆ noted that they were all in elementary school when their group debuted, and with the support of their fans, they have continued to perform until they became high school students.

The four current members of the unit are Karin Takahashi, Mia Kusakabe, Reina Kubo, and Hina Miyazaki. Miyazaki replaced founding member Ayami Sema after Sema graduated from the group in 2014. Tetsuya Komuro, m.c.A.T, DJ Koo, and Hachioji-P are among the musicians who contributed to Prizmmy☆'s songs.

Takahashi, Kusakabe, and Kubo first appeared in the first Pretty Rhythm anime's live-action segments before forming Prizmmy☆ with Sema. "Everybody's Gonna Be Happy," the ending theme song for the Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream television anime, shipped as Prizmmy☆'s debut CD on March 16, 2012. The idols have since performed theme songs for the Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future and Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live television anime, as well as theme songs for each season of the successor anime franchise PriPara. The founding Prizmmy☆ members were also the models for the main characters in the Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future.

The members of the group have already been working on solo projects. Takahashi acted in the manga-inspired stage plays Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (as Sailor Saturn) and Jitsu wa Watashi wa (Actually, I Am…)
