Akari Kaida (海田 明里) is a video game music composer for Capcom best known for her work on the Breath of Fire and MegaMan Battle Network series. She joined in 1994, where her first tracks were for CPS2 title Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness followed by Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge, the direction for both of which was led by grandmaster Takayuki Iwai. During this time she went by the alias Lemon.

Kaida also worked on all sorts of console titles, from Street Fighter Alpha (arranged version) to Mega Man & Bass.

Kaida's first major game project was Breath of Fire III, which she composed alongside Yoshino Aoki. Following this, however, she became more involved with the Mega Man series via the then-emerging MegaMan Battle Network series of games, composing music for entries 1, 4.5 and 5, the last of which being her final game as an employee of the company.

From late 2005 to late 2010, Kaida has worked as a freelance composer (through Studio RainbowScore, her self-made company) during which time she composed music for Luminous Arc. This, however, has not prevented her from providing arrange versions for soundtracks published by Inti Creates, collaborating once more with Aoki on the final entry in the Star Force series, and composing the theme for one of the eight Robot Masters in Mega Man 10. She became a member of GeOnDan in late 2010, which has since disbanded, and has since composed for games such as Loveplus+, Magician's Quest 2 and 3, Steel Chronicle and New Loveplus. She is currently affiliated with ATTIC Inc.

While she is still chiefly known by the same name, she has actually married as early as 2006. Her full name is Akari Kaida Groves.
