Osaka Performance Doll (大阪パフォーマンスドール), also known as OPD, was a female japanese idol group active from 1993 to 1997, based in Osaka. They had five main members (called F/UNIT) singing on their singles and album releases and 20 more members for their live performances.[1]

Former Taiyou to Ciscomoon member Inaba Atsuko was a member of the group before joining Hello! Project.

F/UNIT got its name from the initials of their five members, and consisted of Furutani Ayano, Ueda Miho, Nakano Kumiko , Inaba Atsuko, and Takeuchi Yukiko.

Furutani and Inaba left the group in March 1996 (for unknown reasons), and were replace by Nakamura Aki and Shigemoto Naomi.

OPD disbanded in 1997, but reunited in 2008 for two shows (called 2008 Gentei Osaka Performance Doll Natsumatsuri!! ~Jyuugonen no Natsu Dakara~) and one compilation album to commemorate their 15th anniversary.
