RERAITO!!!!!

(supposed to be Rewrite, but Japanese pronounces it like "re rai to")

At least it's not as bad as Furasshubakku (Flashback).

I'm also kinda curious why Oricon has to list Britney spears on their site when she's not a japanese artist. Her and other US artist just downgrade the rankings of real japanese artists.
Yeah, I looked it up on Planet chart and they reckon AKFG have sold 150k so far. The Oricon chart I think, lists the number of copies actually shipped to stores. And they include Western artists in all their charts as well. The last album to be certified a RIAJ million seller in Japan was Avril Lavigne's Under My Skin. And hikki's exodus officially sold (only) 368000 copies in the first week. Though she can still claim to have the biggest-selling album this year with her singles collection well over the 3m mark.

@_@ you serious? I always thought that Oricon just estimated, but that makes more sense that they measure how many copies were shipped. So if they say that AKG started with 300k and the next week it says 99k, do u add those two figures together to 399k?

AKG had two indies albums...."The Time and Past I couldn't see you again" and "I'm Standing Here". The first one had english lyrics and is like totally impossible to find anymore cause its so rare.

Then AKG came out with the mini album "Houkai Amplifier" and the album "Kimi tsunagi Five M". "Sol-fa" is their second major album so far. They also have 6 major singles out too

lol...double posting, but I thought you guys would get a kick out of this. I found this article on Mognet's forum and its way cool! According to it, AKG has already sold 600,000 copies of Sol-Fa!

Asian Kung-Fu Generation finally kicks in
Rori Caffrey Special to The Daily Yomiuri

My earliest memory of Asian Kung-Fu Generation, Japan's current buzz band,
is when they played at Summer Sonic 2003--not that I actually saw them
perform. Heavens no. I doubt many people did. But, hey, you don't forget a
name like that too easily.

At the time they were a greenhorn band who, out of nearly 30 groups playing
that day, had drawn the short-straw job of being first up on the smallest of
four stages. When Asian Kung-Fu Generation were playing their final song,
most concert-goers weren't even through the front gate. Those that were
inside had made beelines for the main arena, or the other stages, or the
T-shirt stalls. There were probably more people lining up for ice cream bars
than to see Asian Kung-Fu Generation.

As for me, I had never heard their music and was more than a bit dubious of
that name. Asian Dub Foundation--an established British act with huge
following. Asian Kung-Fu Generation--struggling Japanese band seeking a
following. A coincidence? An homage? An in-joke? Whatever the case, I
thought a band that employed so little creativity in naming themselves would
put even less into writing their songs. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who
took a pass on them that day.

Fast-forward a year and a bit to today. Asian Kung-Fu Generation have just
kicked off a 12-date national tour, with all but one show completely sold
out. Their latest album Sol-fa debuted at No. 1 on the national chart three
weeks ago and is yet to budge. According to Ki/oon Records it's already sold
600,000 copies, way more than their debut Kimi Tsunagi Five M. There doesn't
seem to be a music shop without an Asian Kung-Fu Generation display or a
magazine rack without the quartet on a cover.

Going from rock festival-opener to one of Japan's biggest bands in little
more than a year is a quick rise to say the least. This surge in popularity
is even more dramatic when you consider the band's slow beginning.
Vocalist-guitarist Masafumi Goto, guitarist Kensuke Kita, bassist Takahiro
Yamada and drummer Kiyoshi Ijichi have been plugging away as Asian Kung-Fu
Generation since their college days in 1996. It was four years before they
released a CD, and five before they got radio airplay.

In November 2002, they entered the Oricon charts with their mini-album Hokai
Amplifier. The independent release piqued the interest of Ki/oon, who
re-released it months later. By then, the gluey English lyrics and
alternarock 101 stylings of their early work were gone. They had honed an
urgent, emotional sound that rested somewhere between that of Weezer and
Bump of Chicken. Fans of both bands started to take notice.

Their latest, Sol-fa, binds their last four singles ("Siren," "Loop&Loop,"
"Rewrite" and "Kimino Machimade") with eight new songs to create their most
balanced and mature release yet. Goto credits this to songwriting duties
being shared more equally between band members than ever before.

Their singles "Rewrite" and "Haruka Kanata," used respectively as the themes
to cartoon series Fullmetal Alchemist and Naruto, have managed to snag Asian
Kung-Fu Generation an international fan base. With anime being Japan's
hottest cultural export, Asian Kung-Fu Generation has hitched a ride around
the world. On English Web sites dedicated to the band, fans from as far away
as Norway, Brazil, New Zealand and Puerto Rico discuss the group's latest
videos, and at an anime convention in California, "Haruka Kanata" was banned
from the karaoke room after being requested too many times.

Sol-fa is available now on Ki/oon Records.

Being Rewrite the best intro song in FMA, and therefore one of the best intro songs in an anime. I have no doubt that this band must be pretty good to listen to... Where can I buy this album?

Also if you don't live in Japan becareful of Labelgate's copyright protected CD's. It cannot be played on Macintosh operation system, nor any PC without Internet ID authentication which is only available to the residents in Japan. I found this out when I tried to rip the songs off of my Sol-fa CD onto mp3 format on my PC because I have a digital portable MP3 player that I use. Damn you Sony.

OMG! I can't believe that AnimeSuki's Ajikan thread is three years old and has only four posts?

All I can say is this - there's more to Ajikan's music than just Haruka Kanata and Rewrite...

I've become a fan of this band. N.G.S. is a great song, especially the 2005 Shibuya-Ax live version.

I got a record of them, and didn't like it at all. All the songs sounded the same, identical punk-rock bass and drums base, short songs (this is sometimes related with lack of enough creativity to make a song varied enough to last longer), overall an unappealing band. I heard they were similar to Jinn, that's why I decided to check them out. And granted, Jinn kicks these guys' asses in terms of technical quality of the musicians.

Not that I have anything at people liking them, I just don't find them to be highly skilled musicians.
