Minawo (みなを minawo?) is a Japanese band composed of the singer and songwriter Minako Yamaguchi (山口みなこ Yamaguchi Minako?) and the musical composer Mitsuwo Matsuura (松浦みつを Matsūra Mitsuwo?). The band is[when?] signed to Mona Records. The band's name, "Minawo", is a portmanteau of the given names of the bandmates, Minako, and Mitsuwo. Minawo is known in anime circles for performing the ending themes to both D.N.Angel and Melody of Oblivion.

Minawo was formed in 1999 after Matsuura and Yamaguchi met in a club while both were attending University of Kitakyushu.[1]
