Romantic Mode (stylized as ROMANTIC MODE) was a Japanese pop group that debuted in 1996 with their first single, "Dreams." The members are Akira Asakura (vocals), Masaki Suzukawa (guitars/keyboards), and Joe Rinoie (keyboards/backup vocals).

Their style is electronic pop.

Two of their songs, "DREAMS" and "Resolution," were used in the anime After War Gundam X as the first and second opening songs, respectively.

The group broke up soon after their last album was released in 1999. However, Akira Asakura continued as a solo artist initially under her birthname, Saori Saitoh, but reverted to her stagename in 2005.
