Sai Shuu-K (Literally meaning Sai Shukei,Recount;サイシュウ-K) is the second official main group of QUEEN-HART.Formed in 2002,the group originally consisted of 5 members.In 2009,after the fouding member's departure from the group,ten new girls were added.Up to date,there is a total of 9 current members.The group is known for being in the Top 5 on the Oricon Charts for most of their singles and albums.
August 12,2002,Sai Shuu-K was formed with five members: Futada Kimi,Fukao Aina,Ina Riko,Kaminaga Eiko and Kasai Ryan.October 15,Sai Shuu-K released their debut single,Samidare no Hizashi.It reached #1 on the Oricon Charts,with 190,289 copies sold.
Over the years,Sai Shuu-K gained alot of publicity,performing in Domes,the Saitama Super Arena,and the Nippon Budokan very often when possible.QUEEN-HART producer,Yamada,stated that Sai Shuu-K seemed unbeatable towards most idol groups.
With the release of the group's MV for Osaka no Love Town!,fans complained that it was too mature for the girls (despite the youngest member being almost 18 years of age).Yamada's statement to the fans was,"What do you expect?They aren't little girls anymore.".Very few fans 'quit' being a Sai Shuu-K fan,while many others just refused to buy the single.It became Sai Shuu-K's lowest single single,with only 26,798 copies sold.
October 15,2008,the members announced that they would be leaving Sai Shuu-K (and Fukao Aina and Ina Riko announced that they would leave QUEEN-HARTS as a whole) to focus on their "adult life".Leader Futaba Kimi stated that auditions for new members would start in December 2008.
January 16,2009,the five founding members of Sai Shuu-K left the group.Two days later,the ten new members of Sai Shuu-K were released.Their debut single in the group, Anata no Genkai ni Tassuru,was released March 18,2009,and reached #2 on the Oricon Charts,with 96,384 copies sold.
