SG5 Is the New Japanese Girl Group Debuting in Collaboration With 'Sailor Moon'

The quintet will make their US debut in LA this week.

SG5 — a new Japanese girl group created in collaboration with the Sailor Moon franchise — is set to enter the U.S. market with their upcoming debut in Los Angeles.

Comprised of five members, the music act is a modern, IRL, music-based take on the iconic anime series. Short for “Sailor Guardians 5,” SG5 is described as an “intergalactic pop supergroup that protects the universe from evil, injustice and negativity.” The group, comprised of the members SAYAKA, RURI, RUI, MIYUU, and KAEDE,  is co-managed by Japanese entertainment company LDH Japan Inc. alongside threesixzero, the global management company behind names like Calvin Harris and Willow Smith.

Members SAYAKA, KAEDE, MIYUU, and RURI are J-pop veterans, coming from the girl group Happiness that debuted in 2011, while RUI made her initial debut in 2021 through the group iScream. They’ve tapped BloodPop, a collaborator of Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, as executive producer and co-creative director for their debut album, which is reportedly a “mix of futuristic pop and uptempo dance tracks.” Songs will be in both English and Japanese to further tap the global market.

Stay tuned for SG5’s debut stage, which is scheduled for July 1 at the ANIME EXPO in Los Angeles.
