Yes and no.
The event was RenRen's solo event, but RenRen isn't managed by any agency. She invited them to her solo event, and eventually developed a unit with 5 other UUG(2) rejects.

It's a shame they're going nowhere because they're an appealing group to me. :love:

I'd be more interested initially in following them than I would the actual audition winners, so it would be nice if they gave it a shot. Maybe T-Palette would take them up. :lol:

Like Mayu and Chinatsu, she's also a former idol member; the Toyama local group Vienolossi.

If you google her, you'll see lots of pictures of her in those days.

So UF in general are hunting those local idols.

Ok, so I haven't really been following the UUG(2) thing... are they actually joining UUG, or are they a sister group? Or is it still somehow unclear?

Still unclear. We won't know for sure until we see a real performance or event.

Yeah, that doesn't clear it up for me, either. :unsure:
