2005-2010: Pre-Debut

In August 2005, two Johnny's Jr. units, Kis-My-Ft and A.B.C. Jr., combined to form Kis-My-Ft2. The name comes from the first letter from each of their last names; Kitayama Hiromitsu, Iida Kyohei, Senga Kento, Miyata Toshiya, Yokoo Wataru, Fujigaya Taisuke, Tamamori Yuta and Nikaido Takashi ("ni" in Kanji is the number 2). They performed as a 8 member group until end of March 2006 when Iida Kyohei left Johnny's due to his studies, leaving Kis-My-Ft2 without its "I".

The unit is modelled after one of Johnny's Entertainment older groups Hikaru GENJI and are known to perform their songs such as Sayonara no Jounetsu, Areno no Megapolis, Paradise Ginga, StarLight, Kaze no Naka no Shounen, Winning Run, and Garasu no Juudai.

As a Johnny's Jr. group, they perform at The Shounen Club, back dance at concerts of the debuted groups of their company and also held concerts together with the other juniors. And sometimes they also support some stage plays produced by their company.
