E.G.family is a project composed by artists and groups related to E-girls. The project was announced on June 5, 2017 and it effectively started on July 17, 2017.

About

E.G.family was previously a joint project of the groups Dream, Happiness and Flower which was named E-girls. With the evolution of the project, E-girls formally became a group and the brand E-girls became E.G.family. E.G.family is also the female side of the EXILE TRIBE.

Announcement by LDH JAPAN
Thanks for your warm continuous support of E-girls.

We are here to announce that E-girls will be evolved into E.G.family.

"E-girls" is a girls' entertainment project debuted in April 2011. The members from Dream, Happiness and Flower gathered together to realize their dreams on a larger stage.

Thanks to your support, "E-girls" has accumulated valuable experience and realized a lot of dreams in these 6 years.

What kind of team E-girls should become from now on, so that more people could enjoy their entertainment? What kind of entertainment should E-girls present? In order to address these matters, 19 members shared their dreams with each other. They also exchanged their ideas about how to make everyone's dream come true and how to make E-girls a better group.

In order to present better entertainment that more people could enjoy and to make everyone's dream come true, the E-girls members made a decision that they would carry out activities as E.G.family in the future.

LDH respects every member's will and will help them to realize their dreams.

Please look forward to the future activities of E-girls, Dream Ami, DANCE EARTH PARTY, Happiness, Flower, ShuuKaRen, SudannaYuzuYully and E.G.family and support them as always.

Announcement by E.G.family
In order for E-girls to shine in the future, we will tell you about the new structure known as "E.G.family", decided upon by the 19 members of E-girls.

In April 2011, the three groups of Dream, Happiness, and Flower gathered together and began as an entertainment project.

Thanks to everyone's warm support, we have been able to fulfill many drams, including a 3rd arena tour and our 4th consecutive appearance on Kouhaku.

Six years have passed since we began, and we talked about what to do to keep E-girls shining. As a result of multiple discussions with the 19 members, sharing each other’s dreams and respecting them, we decided to start a new organization.

The future "E-girls" will expand into a three dimensional artist group known as "E.G.family" and evolve as a girls entertainment project.

E.G.family includes seven artists: E-girls, Dream Ami, DANCE EARTH PARTY, Happiness, Flower, ShuuKaRen, and SudannaYuzuYully.

E-girls, which has been working as a "project" so far will start anew as one team of 11 members.

Everyone in E.G.family will use what has been gained in experience with E-girls so far, so that everyone's dreams will come true. And seeking a new glow, we will further evolve.

All the members will work with their full power so that the entertainment delivered by E.G.family will be better than ever.

Anticipate our new form of evolution, and we look forward to your continued support.
