Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku (私立恵比寿中学, Shiritsu Ebisu Chūgaku, literally "Ebisu Private Junior High School") are a Japanese female idol group. The band's name is officially shortened to Ebichu (エビ中).[1] The group was created by 3B Junior, the third section of the talent agency Stardust Promotion. Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku is considered a "little sister" group to another Stardust Promotion girl group, Momoiro Clover Z.[2][3]

Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku is named after a fictitious school in Ebisu, a neighborhood in Shibuya, Tokyo. It was planned as a group of elementary and middle school students. However, this concept has changed as the members aged. All of the current members have already graduated high school, and the group currently uses "Forever a Middle-schooler" as their concept.

The group was officially nicknamed "King of the School Play", and was advertised as being a group with very rough singing and dancing skills. Or, more accurately, the group's slogan at the time was "Unarticulated dance and shaky vocals."[4] However, the group has outgrown said slogan over time, and have since reached a point where they're praised for their vocal skills.[5] Originally formed as a quintet on August 4, 2009, the lineup has changed multiple times since then, with some members having "changed school" (the group's official term for leaving it) and some having "transferred in" (joined).[6][7] The most recent lineup change occurred on January 3, 2018 when longtime member Aika Hirota departed the group.

History[edit]

Formation and "Indie" years (2009–12)[edit]

2009

Ebichu was formed as a quintet on August 4, 2009. The original lineup consisted of Kanon, Mizuki, Narumi Uno, Reina Miyazaki and Rika Mayama. The group started out performing short sets (often opening for Momoiro Clover) at malls and shopping centers. In October, Ayaka Yasumoto and Natsu Anno were added to the lineup.

2010

On February 14, 2010, Kanon announced her departure from the group. On the same day, Hinaki Yano was announced as a new member. The group's first single "Asa no Chime ga Narimashita" was released the same day as well.

In April, Aika Hirota was added as a new member. One month later in May, four new members: Mirei Hoshina, Rio Koike, Hirono Suzuki and Rina Matsuno, were announced, bringing the total number of members to 12.

The group released their second single, "Ebizori Diamond!!", on August 7.

On November 23, it was announced that Narumi Uno would be departing the group on January 10. In addition, Hinata Kashiwagi was announced as a new member. From this day until Uno's departure, the group's lineup reached its peak at 13 members.

Ebicracy (2017–18)[edit]

2017

On February 8, 2017, Rina Matsuno died, aged 18.[35] Matsuno was unable to perform at the group's concert the previous day due to feeling ill, and was resting at home in Tokyo. In the early morning on February 8 her condition suddenly worsened. At around 5 AM her parents called 119. She was taken in the ambulance, but pronounced dead at the hospital.[36][37] On February 10, it was revealed that the cause of death was a cardiac arrhythmia.[38] In her last post on Instagram on February 6 she said that she had returned from a family trip to Hakone.[39]

All upcoming concerts and events were cancelled, and the group went into a period of mourning.[40]

The group's website continued listing Rina Matsuno as a member until April 1. It was then announced that the group would continue on with the remaining 7 members, and that a new album, titled "Ebicracy", would be released on May 31.[41] The new album is the first Ebichu album to not feature any singles, consisting only of new material. "Ebicracy" charted at number 1 on both the Oricon and Billboard Japan weekly album charts, a first for Ebichu.[42][43]

After the show ended, an "end credits" video was played on screen, accompanied by a Rina Matsuno solo version of the song "Kanjou Densha", from "Ebicracy". This was possible because work on "Kanjou Densha" had begun earlier than the other songs, due to it being used in a commercial.[44]
