HistoryEdit

v-u-den was formed in August 2004 and consisted of Ishikawa Rika (then a member of Morning Musume), Miyoshi Erika (winner of a 2003 Hello! Project audition), and Okada Yui (a former Hello Pro Kenshuusei who made her debut). The group's formation was announced alongside Ishikawa's graduation from Morning Musume, and her official reason for graduating was to lead v-u-den full-time.

In 2004, They hosted the TV show Majokko Rikachan no Magical Biyuuden. In early 2005, Miyoshi and Okada released a photobook called "hello! x2." They released a several singles, made a small tour in Singapore, and even performed in Ribbon no Kishi: The Musical.

From April 3, 2005 until September 30, 2006, they had their own radio show, v-u-den B.B.L..

In 2006, All 3 members of v-u-den appeared in the movie Sukeban Deka Codename Asamiya Saki. Ishikawa playing the villain-ess and Miyoshi and Okada playing the friends of the heroine.

On January 26, 2008, it was announced that v-u-den would disband after the completion of their summer concert tour, v-u-densetsu 5 tour.

On June 29, 2008, V-u-den disbanded.

The NameEdit

美 bi (び) : beauty
勇 yuu (ゆう) : bravery
伝 den (でん) : legend

美勇伝 is found romanized in several ways on the Internet, including "v-u-den," "Biyuuden," and "vi-yu-den," among others. There is evidence that references each of the above spellings of the name, including their costumes in the H.P. All Stars video, their singles, their photobooks and magazine articles. Which one is correct depends on the romanization system you use or on how Tsunku is feeling on any particular day.

The differences in romanization are largely due to a misunderstanding of the sound being pronounced. The Japanese language doesn't really have a "V" sound. So while the group's name may be spelled with a V, it will be pronounced as a "B" sound by native Japanese speakers.
