The '''MAN WITH A MISSION''' is an alternative Japanese band formed in 2010 in Tokyo. Its lineup consists of members vocalist Tokyo Tanaka, bassist Kamikaze Boy, vocalist and guitarist Jean-Ken Johnny, disk jockey DJ Santa Monica, and drummer Spear Rib (pronounced like "spare rib"). Each member of the band wears a unique wolf head costume, lending to their back story that they're scientific experiments with wolf heads and human bodies. Their music explores a bunch of different genres, mixing pop, hard rock, dance and punk elements. They're mostly known in Japan, but have also briefly toured the US and parts of Europe and were invited as guests to Japan Expo 2012 in France. One of their songs, "Emotions", was used as a theme for ''Manga/HentaiKamen'''s 2013 live action adaptation. They're better known, though, for being the artists behind "database", the original opening theme for ''LightNovel/LogHorizon''. "Raise your flag" was the first theme for ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans''.

** This extends to when they perform live. Jean-Ken Johnny, Tokyo Tanaka, and Kamikaze Boy all don different masks that free their mouths so they can sing more easily, but their faces are painted pitch black. Japanese broadcasters go out of their way to avoid showing their faces during live performances, either opting for wide shots of the whole band slightly from behind, closeups of the top half of the wolf masks, or closeups of DJ Santa Monica and Spear Rib instead.

* TheVoiceless: Jean-Ken Johnny is the only member of the band to speak (Japanese and English) in interviews. Apparently he was the only member of the band "created" to speak. Except Tokyo Tanaka is lead vocalist and Kamikaze Boy sings during choruses and shares lyric writing duties with Johnny. They never quite explain this.
