Junjou no Afilia (純情のアフィリア), formerly Afilia Saga East (アフィリア・サーガ・イースト, Afiria Sāga Īsuto) and Afilia Saga (アフィリア・サーガ, Afiria Sāga), is a Japanese female vocal group associated with a chain of maid cafes and restaurants called Afilia Group. Its members represent (work at) shops in the Tokyo districts of Ikebukuro, Ueno, Roppongi, and Shinjuku.[1] The group is jointly produced by Chiyomaru Shikura and voice actress and singer Haruko Momoi.[2][3] People who have written songs for the group include Tsunku and Kōsuke Ōjima.[1]

Overview and history[edit]

The group was formed in 2008 and is conceived as an "academy-type vocal unit" consisting of girls selected from establishments belonging to Afilia Group, a nationwide cafe and restaurant network. It is jointly produced by two people, Chiyomaru Shikura and voice actress and singer Haruko Momoi.[2][3] The group employs a line-up changing system with members joining and leaving.

On March 28, 2012, Afilia Saga East released its 7th single, titled "Mirai no Watashi o Matteiru" ("There's a Future Waiting for Me"). The title song was written by Tsunku and composed by Chiyomaru Shikura. At the time, the group was composed of 14 members, the maximum number since its creation.[2] The single became the group's first to enter the top 10 of the Oricon weekly charts.

As of March 24, 2013, the group is composed of 11 members.[3] Afilia Saga sung the ending theme for the TV animation series Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Animation,[3] as well as the opening theme for another series, My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy.

On June 3, 2017, the group changed their name to "Junjou no Afilia".
