Asian Kung–Fu Generation was first formed in 1996 when Masafumi Gotō, Kensuke Kita, and Takahiro Yamada met in whileattending a musicclub at KantoGakuin University, a private university located in Yokohama, Japan. After realizing that they allshared similar musical tastes,the three decided to start theirvery own band. Drummer Kiyoshi Ijichi joined them later on afterparting with another college band he waswith at the time.

After graduating from college, following years of playing in several small venues and having collaborated with fellow Japaneserock musicianCaramelman,AKFG released their first indie EP in 2000. The six-track EP contained original lyrics written and sungalmost entirely in English.The four spent the remainderof the year playing in multiple clubs and hosting various independentevents. As their fame and following grew,fans began calling the band simply Ajikan (アジカン), which is an abridgment of theirfull name.

The band’s musical style is influenced by seminal Western punk and alternative rock acts in conjunction with their own localJapanese indierock background.As a result, their songs maintain a balance of various aspects of the genres, most typicallyexpressing fast-paced temposand prominent, hard-edged guitarriffs as well as rhythmic flow and emotional lyrics. Despite theindie nature of their music, the band hasenjoyed worldwide commercial success in addition tocritical acclaim.
