Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku are a group of idols formed under Stardust Promotion's 3B junior department.

In February 2010, Kanon left the group and Yano Hinaki joined. On February 14, 2010, EbiChu released their first indie single, "Asu no Chime ga Narimashita" ("The Morning Chime Has Rung!"), featuring two cover songs. The original CD cover features the six girls who sang on it, and the "New Jacket Version" issued later features the twelve girls from the TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL 2010 lineup. On April 10, 2010 Hirota Aika joined, followed by Hoshina Mirei, Koike Rio, Suzuki Hirono and Matsuno Rina on May 22. On August 7 and 8, EbiChu performed at TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL 2010.

On June 19, at a Tower Records event, Reina was selected as the first leader of Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku. Previously, they were simply numbered from 1 to 12, based on when they joined the group.
