Aa! was the second sub-unit of Hello! Project Kids, formed in 2003 with Reina Tanaka (Morning Musume) as leader, Miyabi Natsuyaki and Airi Suzuki. Their first and only single for the first generation was "First Kiss". Despite being a popular song, it's been said that fans at the time were not comfortable with young girls singing about mature topics, with Aa! having one of the youngest average age ranges in H!P at the time. Due to this and Berryz Kobo's formation in January 2004, Airi Suzuki later joined C-ute in 2005. Aa! ceased activities for a while until they reunited to perform "First Kiss" at a 2006 Hello! Project concert.

In 2009, Aa! was revived along with six other defunct groups. Due to Reina Tanaka now being in High-King, she was unable to rejoin Aa! and Hello! Pro Egg and Shugo Chara Egg! member Akari Saho joined Aa! alongside Miyabi Natsuyaki and Airi Suzuki in her place. Their first new single with the second line-up via Hello! Project compilation was a cover song in July 2009 called "YES-YES-YES". In December 2009, Aa! released their next single, an original song called "Yume to Genjitsu" when had been performed in Hello! Project concerts since that summer.

Throughout 2010 and 2011, Aa! continued to appear in Hello! Project concert tours performing their original songs and cover songs and even did a variety skit along with the other revived shuffle units in a Hello! Magazine DVD. In January 2011, however, activities with Aa! ceased again alongside five of the other seven shufle units following the conclusion of their winter tour that month. In April, Akari Saho left Hello! Project to join UFA's new idol group Up Up Girls, further confirming Aa!'s disbandment.

In the spring of 2015, Aa! reunited with Miyabi Natsuyaki and Airi Suzuki to perform a new version of the song "Masayume", a b-side on Aa!'s "First Kiss" single for Berryz Kobo's graduation from Hello! Project, which Miyabi Natsuyaki was a part of.
