My Little Lover is a Japanese pop group belonging to the Avex Trax label as of the single "Ribon" (り・ぼん?) and the album Akko. Previous releases were under Toy's Factory. The group has had several members, but currently only Akko (Akiko Kobayashi 小林亜希子, born Akamatsu 赤松) the vocalist, remains.

The founding members were Akko (vocals) and Kenji Fujī (藤井謙二 Fujī Kenji?) (guitar), later joined by producer/songwriter Takeshi Kobayashi (小林武史 Kobayashi Takeshi?) (keyboard) when they released their first album, evergeen. (The lyricist KATE on their early singles stands for "Kenji, Akko, and Takeshi Ensemble".) Akko and Kobayashi married in 1996, but divorced in 2008 when Kobayashi's affair with Yo Hitoto was made public. Fujii retired from the group in 2002.
