"Kimi Tsunagi Five M" (君繋ファイブエム) is full of feelings and harmonies under a relatively complex name. "Kimi Tsunagi" (君繋) comes from the Masafumi Gotoh singing made of two facets, which makes appear a universe based on useless informations while adding to it an added-value in a dominating manner, either it comes under love or friendship. "Five M" (ファイブエム) is a feeling of distance towards reality, which everyone can feel and consist in taking things just as they are and brush them, feelings which Masafumi Gotoh can grasp in a 5km radius. The full signification is the wish to link things together while keeping this feeling of distance.
The simplicity and normal behaviour make Asian Kung-Fu Generation different from others Japanese bands. Their appearance on television is scarce and they are more concerned about their works than their image. Since the Fukushima's nuclear disaster, Asian Kung-Fu Generation is involved in favour of the definitive nuclear power stations shut down. Despite an agreement made with Ki/oon Records (Sony), the whole Asian Kung-Fu Generation's discography is financed by the band itself, allowing them to be musically independent towards the label.
