Sadie was founded by Mao, Tsurugi, Aki, Mizuki and Sora in February 2005, and comes from the English word “sad”, according to vocalist, Mao. Their first live appearance was on March 18, 2005 at Osaka Big Cat,  when they were the opening act for D, Fatima, Doremidan, shulla, Kra and others. On July 27, 2005 Sadie released their first maxi single, “Kokui no Shita no Yokubou to, Kunou no Hate ni Mita Hyakkei no Yuritachi”, limited to 2000 copies that sold out rapidly.  On December 3, Sadie had their first oneman called “Dekiai ~As a Sad Matter of Fact~” in the Osaka Muse Hall in front of 250 people, introducing their new single “Dekiai”, which came out a few days later and the single “Oboreru Sakana”, exclusive for visitors of their concert.
