2007-2008 Formation and first appearances

The group was first created in 2007 with the name Gekidan Exiles[2], which was changed the following year to the current Gekidan Exile[3].

2009-2010 Hanagumi and Kazegumi teams

In January 2009 the first edition of Gekidan Exile Auditions was held and Yusuke Isomura and Yuta Ozawa were declared eligible. They were put in the Hanagumi team with Shintarou Akiyama , Sho Aoyagi , Kyousuke Harukawa and JONTE, all part of the LDH family.[4]

Seven months later there was a second edition of the auditions.[5]

In 2010 JONTE, Elly, Alan Shirahama, Kenjiro Yamashita and Keita Machida decided to leave the group to pursue other paths[8] and the two teams were merged into a single one under the name Gekidan Exile[9].

Machida, however, rejoined the following year after deciding to part ways withGenerations from Exile to chase his acting carreer[10] after a long period of inactivity due to injuries.[11]
