The first two artists to sign with the company were This is not a business and new idol group Pla2me which had been formed by former Bis member Saki Kamiya. Billie Idle were also co-produced by Watanabe.[3] In early 2015, Watanabe decided to relaunch Bis as part of WACK, this led to the formation of Bish (Japanese idol group).[4] In July 2015, Watanabe became the vocalist of This is not a business until their disbandment at the end of 2015. In April 2016, he published his biography, Junnosuke Watanabe: Creating an Idol.[5] In late 2017, Watanabe and Kenta Matsukuma formed Beat mints boyz.[6] Watanabe's fashion brand Neglect Adult Patients was established in February 2018.[7]
