All the current kenshuusei appeared as backdancers at the DreamS ~Cagayake!~ Spring 2013 Concert. There is a rumor that a new group is to form in October. The rumors were confirmed as Tsunku announced a mass Kenshuusei graduation when he made Kenshuusei units KuroShiro and Printemps official groups and Tanaka Chiharu was to become a DreamS soloist. They graduated on March 1.
Watanabe stated that she will pass her leadership onto Kosuga Kirino, who will be the oldest and longest-served Kenshuusei after she graduates.
