Kishida Kyoudan & the Akeboshi Rockets are an indie rock group from Japan formed in 2004 lead by Dato Kisida on guitar and bass, "Ichigo" on the vocals, Hayapi on the guitar, みっちゃん (michan) on the drums and T-Tsu on the guitar as support member for tours.
It started as an electro-rock instrumental doujin band doing covers on soundtracks from the videogame "Touhou". Their line-up at that time was the same but without ichigo and with T-Tsu playing on their albums.They released their first album on the famous doujin festival Comiket C69 on 2005 .
On 2007 female vocalist "Ichigo" joined the band and they released their first album as a progressive rock band "Fantasy incident".
They have since released more original music albums and have remade their old songs adding lyrics and replacing the electronic synthesizer with Ichigo's voice apart from continuing releasing "Touhou" doujin albums.
On July 2010 they made the opening song for anime "Highschool of the dead." This pushed the band further into fame and the opening song along with another song were released in a single called "Highschool of the Dead".
