Trivia

  • The band name was created by combining the two words FAntastic and toKYo and also stands for Five Ass Kicking Youngsters, and also the band name was originally derived from the word Fake to challenge themselves to bring something new and real to the Japanese music scene.
  • The band was the same project as avex trax's former boy group Da-iCE, which was also introduced with a YouTube exclusive tune, but it's the first time in the label's history to introduce members with individual teasers.
  • Message for girls: Do what they want, the way they want.
