Avex held public auditions for members of the new group in June 2010, in which twelve finalists were selected from some 7,000 participants. By February 2010, about 1,000 people advanced to the second round, and a final round was held in June. The results of the audition were subject to controversy because of a lottery system used to select two of the members. Super Girls made their stage debut on 7 August 2010 at the A-Nation event. The first live performance of the 12-member idol group was held at Shiodome-AX in Tokyo, and the group released their first album, Chōzetsu Shōjo (超絶少女?), on 22 December 2010. The group held their first actual concert on 23 October at Harajuku Astro Hall in Tokyo.
The group's debut single, "Gambatte Seishun", was delayed due to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Two more singles followed in 2011, "Max! Otomegokoro/Happy Go Lucky!" and "Joshiryoku Paradise". At the end of the year, they were nominated for the Japan Record Award for Best New Artist but lost to another girl group, Fairies.
