The club was founded in 1965. They were promoted to the Tohoku Regional League in 1982. They played in the Japan Soccer League Division 2 in 1985 and 1986.

In 2006, they won the Tohoku Regional League championship for the fifth straight year. They are automatically promoted to the Japan Football League after they won the National Regional League Playoffs.

The team has announced that it would separate from its parent company and join the J. League if the club's final yearly standing should ever allow promotion.

In May, 2009, TDK announced that the football club will become independent for the 2010 season and be based around Akita. Later in 2010 the club's name was changed to "Blaublitz Akita". Blau and Blitz mean blue and lightning in German respectively.
