thx lejun, I think

i HATE when my blazer falls over my strings.

As mentioned by cengiz in the cbox, Nestlé Japan’s Youtube channel has started a serial called “GACKTなゲーム!? ガメ先手ル!" (it very roughly translates to "Gackt plays games!? Game Tackling!") where he plays retro Japanese games for the first time. I think there’s a pun about game center in there as well. Anyways, the channel will be releasing a new clip of Gackt gaming for a year and it seems he’s not very familiar with these retro 8bit/16bit games though he was known as a big fan (self-proclaimed) of the original Playstation. The Gackt Italia channel has translated the first few clips into English if you are curious.

Oh if you like this kind of retro gaming shows, I recommend you check out Game Center CX, where the host tackles really punishing classics like the original “Ninja Gaiden.” I’m not a retro gamer, but this show is pretty interesting.

Gackt as Yoshiki @ Camui Gakuen 12/2013 (and he actually drums!)

(Is that really gackt? I thought he was less muscle and more sinew.)

thx nui!

Gackt - P.S. I Love You (PV)

The PV is a seven minutes mini-film for his latest single released two days ago, so the song pauses a bit here and there. It’s actually better than I expected and not full of the “daikishimeru” or various forms of this word that was used in his old ballads. Still “P.S. I Love You" is not much of a departure from what he has been releasing lately. "Sakura, chiru…" is the only standout so far. :/

Love that he gets mobbed by guys and girls!

Eyes=Mirrorge became Drop (because there was already an Eyes=Mirrorge is Sacramento). 

Phobia was a great fuckin’ VK band. They shoulda gone further but I get the impression they were just brilliant guys goofing off for a couple years before going to med/law school or somethin’.

Remember how CRAZY people went when it was announced Hyde AND Gackt were gonna star in a vampire(?) flick together? Holy Shit. :)
