Anti Feminism (stylized as ∀NTI FEMINISM) is the solo musical project started by vocalist Kenzi in 1991. None of the other members are considered official.[1] The rotating supporting members come from various parts of Japan, including Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo, Fukuoka, and Nagoya. In 2007, Anti Feminism toured through Europe and USA with Hagakure.[2]

History[edit]

Kenzi, (ex-Kamaitachi, The Dead Pop Stars), started the project in 1991 and continued for only a few years. In 1998, Kenzi worked together with Takayuki of The Piass to revive the project. By 2006 there had been more than fifty different members. Several well-known musicians of the visual kei scene have participation, including Kisaki (Phantasmagoria, Syndrome, Mirage, etc.), Katsura (Shazna, Baiser, Vinett, etc.) and Hideaki (Das Vasser).

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 at Anti Feminism's official site, with the section "Mad Performance".

Kenzi affectionately refers to fans of Anti Feminism as "Mad Family".
