«Cherry Parade» is Osaka Performance Doll’s 3rd single. The single reached #100 on the weekly Oricon charts and charted for one week.

Osaka Performance Doll (大阪パフォーマンスドール; also called OPD) was a Japanese idol dance pops group from 1993 to 1997. They were theatre-based in Osaka, with five main members (called «F/Unit» with their initials) and several others for live performances and trainees. They are the sister group of Tokyo Performance Doll. They made their debut with the single «Mangetsu no Yoru Dakara» in 1993. However, in March 1996, Atsuko Inaba and Ayano Furutani left the group (or was let go?) and was replaced by Shigemoto and Nakamura, thus the group’s changing their name to OPD. After releasing two singles and one album as OPD, Osaka Performance Doll disbanded in 1997.

In 2008, the group got back together by doing two performances named «2008 Gentei Osaka Performance Doll Natsumatsuri!! ~Jyuugonen no Natsu Dakara~» to celebrate their 15th year anniversary.
