Morning Musume Otomegumi
Morning Musume Otomegumi or Morning Musume Otome Gumi (モーニング娘。おとめ組) was one of two splinter groups Morning Musume was split into in 2003.
- Iida Kaori (飯田圭織)
- Ishikawa Rika (石川梨華)
- Tsuji Nozomi (辻希美)
- Ogawa Makoto (小川麻琴)
- Fujimoto Miki (藤本美貴)
- Michishige Sayumi (道重さゆみ)
- Tanaka Reina (田中れいな)
Morning Musume Otomegumi was formed in 2003 with seven members of Morning Musume's line-up of fifteen. The other eight members were Morning Musume Sakuragumi. The reason for the split was so the two groups could perform in smaller tour venues. In addition, both groups released two singles that showed their image. Otomegumi showed the image of youth, where the members sang upbeat and fast-paced songs. Both groups became inactive after 2004.
