ANTI FEMINISM (typeset as ∀NTI FEMINISM) is a Japanese visual kei band formed in 1991. The band is an on-going side project of the vocalist Kenzi, and has included members from various parts of Japan, including Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo, Fukuoka, and Nagoya. The band's vocalist, Kenzi, has been the only consistent member while the other members have been cycled constantly. In 2007, Anti Feminism toured through Europe with Hagakure.

History

Kenzi, drummer of the band The Dead Pop Stars, started the band in 1991, although ANTI FEMINISM disbanded several years later. In 1998, Kenzi worked together with Takayuki of The Piass to revive the band. In the 8 years since the reunion the band has had more than fifty different members, with exception of the vocals, that always were led by Kenzi. Every position has been filled up with several well known musicians of the visual kei scene amongst them Kisaki (Phantasmagoria, Syndrome, Mirage, etc.), Katsura (Shazna, Baiser, Vinett, etc.), Hideaki (Das Vasser) and many more. Despite the genres that ANTI FEMINISM's music fits into, the band involved some members in the past whose bands did not have much to do with hard rock.

A noteworthy detail of ANTI FEMINISM is Kenzi's antics at live performances. During shows, he has set off fireworks, set himself on fire, broken fluorescent light bulbs over his head, jumped onto a board covered in barbed wire, and done various other extreme stunts, consistently injuring himself and calling for hospitalization. This is highlighted in ANTI FEMINISM's official site profile, as well as the section "Mad Performance."

KENZI affectionately refers to fans of ANTI FEMINISM as Mad Family.
