The SUN girls were the first ones in the ring in 2009. Hikaru and Saki Maemura are both retiring in April and Hikaru also announced her engagement to marry New Japan's Koji Kanemoto. Hotta had a vanity show which featured her losing two matches at the same show! OK, one loss was while cosplaying as her buddy Akira Hokuto. GAMI won both of her match at her 40th birthday show, beating rookie Kayo Fujimori and upsetting Ayako Hamada.
