|General Unit Data|
In their idol debut during the "Rookie Idol Produce" event, Sakura Muramatsu, Izumi Ohishi, and Ako Tsuchiya were all produced under the name "New Wave". Much like the 876 Production unit Dearly Stars, this trio proved to be practically inseparable. They go to the same school and are canonically friends with each other. Many of their initial cards, event appearances, and other appearances in the official manga would feature all three members and it wasn't until recent card sets that they would take place in events alone. In their appearances, their costumes have always corresponded with each other when together.
They made a brief cameo appearance in Episode 2.
- This unit was clearly based on the 876 Production unit Dearly Stars. Somewhat ironically, New Wave managed to create an official name for themselves before their source material did in THE iDOLM@STER ONE FOR ALL.
