Asian Kung-Fu Generation is a Japanese rock band formed in Yokohama, Japan in 1996. For nearly its entire career, the band has consisted of vocalist Masafumi Gotoh, guitarist Kensuke Kita, bassist Takahiro Yamada, and drummer Kiyoshi Ijichi. The band's musical style is influenced by seminal Western punk and alternative rock acts in conjunction with their own local Japanese indie rock background. As a result, their songs maintain a balance of various aspects of the genres, most typically expressing fast-paced tempos and prominent, hard-edged guitar riffs as well as rhythmic flow and emotional lyrics. Despite the indie nature of their music, the band has enjoyed worldwide commercial success in addition to critical acclaim.

Months have passed since I've listened to their single "Re:Re". It got me hook and because of that, I've listen to almost all of their albums and I must say, this band is one of the greatest J-Rock bands of all time. From the catchy guitar riffs, to the beat of the drums, to the bass; it blends well with the emotion and the lyrics on a lot of their songs are really great as well (I've read some of the lyric's literal translations).

Before, I only listen to Japanese-anime songs, but this is the first band that got me outside of their anime songs.

If you're curious, try listening to their album Sol-Fa. This album can get you hook to AKFG. There are no boring tracks on that album especially if you love alternative rock (Specifically Weezer [the 90s Weezer] as they both have familiar style).

Love their songs, some anime could use some of their old songs possibly as their op. They have made a bunch of good songs already

I still couldn't forget After Dark. And after all this time they give me Re:Re. They should make more music.

Naruto's 2nd OP was the first Japanese opening I heard, once the dub switched from the instrumental thing, it immediately converted me to a weeaboo upon hearing it.

one of the best weeb band out there

Best.

Their range is impressive.
Look how different "Haruka Kanata" (which was THE jam back in the day) and "Maigo Inu to Ame no Beat" are from each other, while still being similar in quality. Great band.

I love Re:Re: both old and the new one!

LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR NARUTO SHIPPUDEN OP NEXT MONTH! :D
