The first mention of a group consisting of the talents of the many Magical Girls of Kamihama City first appears in Magia Report Season 2 comic #87 when for no particular reason, Madoka-senpai decides to create an idol group. There isn't really any explanation or context beyond that PAPA wanted to hijack the game's JP server 2nd anniversary; we're not really sure if it worked or not.
The 5 Magical Girls who would make up the original group were scouted over a period of several strips, namely numbers 87, 90, 93, 95, and 97. In keeping with the tradition of Madoka-senpai doing whatever she wants with no real regard for logic, the group was created through a variety of recruitment methods:
- Blue: Rena-chan - scouted by Iroha-chan to meet the requirement of someone "so stacked in the chest that she can create enough energy to overcome entropy"
- Green: Kako-chan - "borrowed" from team Nanaka
- Red: Rika-chan - named pulled by lottery
- Yellow: Mami-senpai - sought by Madoka-senpai as the "big-shot of Mitakihara"
- Pink: Iroha-chan - because Ui-chan said so.
First Succesful Job
Early on, the group first established goal is to become the #1 in Kamihama City. Rena-chan gives a lengthy demonstration in comic #105 as to why this is long shot.
In comic #110, the group...actually, we're not really sure what's happening in this one...
First *Real* Event
The group finally released their first song on April 2nd, 2020, Kanaechao, which corresponds with their first event in the real Magia Record universe, KamiFest: Kamihama Idol Festival 2020. Rena-chan takes the lead on this event with her new Idol version; as a 4-star Magical Girl it is guaranteed that Iroha-chan will not be able to pull her from the Gacha.
