cali≠gari is a Japanese eroguro band formed in 1993.

Over the years, cali≠gari has gone through many member changes, the only original member remaining being Ao. They've also had two vocalists by the name of Shuuji - the second one joined the band in 2000.

cali≠gari took their name from an old horror film, and they are considered to be the pioneers of the eroguro genre (a subset of angura-kei) that includes such bands as MUCC and Merry.
