In July 2003, Erika was the only winner of producer Tsunku's "Hello! Project New Unit!" audition. She sat on the sidelines for over a year until August 2004, she when she joined a new group called "Biyuuden" ("Viyuden," "v-u-den") with former Morning Musume member Rika Ishikawa and Hello! Project Egg Audition 2004 Winner Yui Okada.
The title of this fanlisting is a based on an interview Biyuuden gave while promoting their first single. Biyuuden's name is a combination of three kanji, the words for "beauty," "courage," and "legend." Leader Rika Ishikawa said that each word described one of Biyuuden's three members, and that Erika represented the group's source of courageousness.
For those new to the idea, a fanlisting is essentially a list of fans of a certain musician, actor, TV Show, or anything. People from all around the world stop by and add on to show their support for the fandoms that they love.
