CoCo was a Japanese pop group which consist of Mikiyo Ohno, Azusa Senou, Rieko Miura, Erika Haneda, and Maki Miyamae.


CoCo released their first single on September 6, 1989. They debuted with "Equal Romance" and found themselves on the charts almost regularly. CoCo even had a couple of their songs ("Equal Romance," "Omoide ga Ippai," and "Mou Nakanaide") as theme songs for the very popular anime series Ranma ½. Azusa left the group in 1992 and went solo, while the other four stayed behind. Reiko and Maki released solo works but chose to remain in the group.

In a historic performance, CoCo joined Ribbon, Qlair and a few solo idols for the "Otomejuku" Concert. The highlight was when all of them joined onstage for a rousing version of the Candies classic "Shochuu Omimai Moushiagemasu."

Their final single, "You're My Treasure" was released to the public before they disbanded on August 3, 1994.
