About the Band
A white paper in my right hand
ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION, often abbreviated as AKFG, AKG, and Ajikan, was formed in 1996 and is on the Ki/oon record label. The band consists of:
- Masafumi Gotoh: Vocal & Guitar
- Takahiro Yamada: Bass & Vocal
- Kiyoshi Ijichi: Drums
- Kensuke Kita: Guitar & Vocal
The band has been both commercially successful and critically acclaimed throughout their career, their albums and singles frequently reaching the top 10 on the Oricon charts. Many fans (including myself) discovered the band through their songs' inclusion in popular anime series such as Fullmetal Alchemist, Bleach, Naruto, and Erased.
It's easy to recognize an Ajikan song from their distinctive sound, and once you start listening it's almost impossible to stop. There's not a single song in their discography I dislike; on the contrary, I'm frequently finding new favorites in their songs, and ones that once never registered to me can become a favorite overnight. While many of their songs have familiar sounds to them, they have branched out of late into different sounds to great success, and I for one cannot wait to see where they go next.
