One of the best (J)Rock bands ever. Formed during their college days in 1996 by Masafumi Gotou, Kensuke Kita, and Takahiro Yamada. Ichiji Kiyoshi joined them a bit later.
They play high octane guitar rock with emo and powerpunk influences. Their strong edgy melodies, adrenaline-drenched guitar and bass, fast-paced drumming, perfectly syncronized with Gotou's amazing vocal talents had gained them numerous amounts of fans and awards(even for music videos, lol). Although it took a couple of years to achieve the popularity that they have gained, Ajikan albums are topping charts, hundreds and thousands of copies of their records have been sold and they are filling magazine racks and displays of music shops all over Japan.
Also, their singles "Rewrite" and "Haruka Kanata," used respectively as the themes to anime series Fullmetal Alchemist and Naruto, have managed to snag Asian Kung-Fu Generation a much deserved international fan base.
Refered to as Ajikan by most fans. You should as well.
Stolen and edited from various forums and fansites.
Fangirl A: Dude, asian kung-fu generation is frickin awesome!
Fangirl B: Yeah man, Gotou's hair is smexy <3
