Moametal is number 45 in Pop! Rocks. She is from the Babymetal franchise.
Kikuchi was signed to the talent agency Amuse, Inc. at the age of 8, after winning Semi-Grand Prix (becoming a runner-up) in the Ciao Girl Audition 2007 held by the company. On August 2, 2010, at the age of 11, Moa Kikuchi, at the same time with Yui Mizuno, joined Sakura Gakuin, an idol group managed by their talent agency Amuse. The group had not released its debut single yet. The group members were also divided into smaller subgroups, so-called clubs. Each club had its own musical group that recorded its own songs. Moa and Yui first became members of the Baton Club and its musical group Twinklestars and later together with Suzuka Nakamoto (as leader and lead singer) formed a heavy music club and its heavy metal-themed group Babymetal. Before the heavy music club was created by the management, none of the three heavy music club members knew what heavy metal was.
