It was established in 2008 as part of the TV Tokyo's variety show Onegai! Muscat (おねがい マスカット) which first aired in April 2008. Their first single, released in 2010, reached number 8 in sales on Oricon's singles chart. They held their first live show in July 2010 in Shibuya, Tokyo.
The group did not have a permanent roster but members were rotated in and out. By mid-2012 there were 29 active members and 45 had retired. At that time the group was led by AV Idol Yuma Asami who had been with the group from the start. Because of problems with scheduling and commitments from members with busy modeling and video schedules, the group disbanded and held its last concert on April 7, 2013 after a farewell tour. Longtime member Yuma Asami participated in the final concert despite having recently had major surgery.
