lol stole off is just another term for a sucker punch or somthing simular and im saying for josh to hit him that hard its kinda odd to be an accident unles they were doing somthing that could result in an accident like that a few examples would be sparing maybe a fight scene in the movie where the 2 actors fight but they misjudged distances and stuff and landed real blows by accident

OOOOH!! well i learned a new word, Yay thank u! Rite, i see wat ur sayin, & yeah with that kinda of blow, it would hardy seem like an accident. & i can vouch for that, that sort of stuff happens. Most of da accidents happen off stage den on stage, especially while practicing. Bt it says Josh did it on accident, so thats why i made dat comment. Now if done on purpose...well den dats wen you let all hell break loose! XD & i kno wat ur sayin. n_n

well i hope it was an accident cause if they were doing like a fight scene and it happened thats an honest mistake gackt shouldnt have tried to kill him,but seeing the way things unfolded it looks less like an accident considering how can you strike a person in the face with that much force on accident? then the person in question takes a defensive stance and retaliates it seems less like an accident.

Translated interview from Lawson Mags




In the past, Gackt tours have fundamentally taken the style of incarnating a part of the story he created on a live stage. Such was the case for DIABOLOS, which shook Tokyo Dome, and the movie-linked Moon Saga. And now, in the tour beginning on the 14th December (Mon), based on the tale first announced in 2001- "Requiem Et Reminiscence", a new evolution will be shown. Why did he choose to go in this direction?

"I have been keeping thoughts about wanting to do this for a while, but inside, there was also a part of me that wanted to answer the voices of many of my beloved fans who wanted me to do it again. Of course, I'll make it a show that people seeing it for the first time can enjoy too!"

It can be said that coming to this point was a perfect balance between his own expressed desires and the fan's needs. An exquisite time that unfolds through a long running tour- to those that come, he presents this message:

"I think you'll probably be surprised at my world view, and want to see my past works. Therefore, I want you to get the special edit of my 2001 live DVD "Requiem et Reminiscence ~Shuuen to Seijaku~, because I want you to feel the evolution of the story this world view is based on."

Those who own the DVD should check again, and those who don't should definitely examine it and join the battle. The anticipation of this concert should spread, however what carries a shock to make you speechless is seeing Gackt live. Even on previous tours, after a short time those in the seats had forgotten themselves, staring with their mouths open, shaking slightly, and this time, too, will unmistakeably be a performance that surpasses the imagination.

"My concerts are not just fun, not just easy to get into. Because a story exists with in them, and a theme is given out, I definitely want you to participate in this exchange"

The theme that emerges from the stage Gackt puts his soul into will certainly rock the souls of those on the receiving end. While imagining the theme of this new concert, I want the conversation of souls to carry through to the day the concert is realised. And some final words from Gackt:

"Even the things I say are big, but it's because I always make them reality. This world view is something only I can spread throughout the world. You'll surely be surprised, and I wonder if you won't be moved and tremble?"

Two special Halloween concerts were held at Zepp Tokyo on October 30th and 31st, featuring the bands VAMPS, Tommy Heavenly6, BREAKERZ, Acid Black Cherry, and more.

As soon as VAMPS took the stage, the venue exploded with cheers and shrieks. Both members had appeared dressed in costume! Guitarist KAZ came out dressed as the character Eric Draven (from the popular film "The Crow"), and HYDE wore a lacy gown stained with blood and a blonde wig. The theme of their costumes was apparently "the dead have risen".

During the encore of the show on the 31st, there was a special surprise for the audience. DAIGO, of BREAKERZ, announced that, for the very last song, there was a very special guest coming to join the final session band: it was Gackt! Together with HYDE and KAZ, the band played Motley Crue's "SHOUT AT THE DEVIL" with HYDE on vocals, KAZ on guitar, and Gackt on drums. It was Gackt's first time playing drums at a show

Oricon: sexy voices

Which celebrities have a sexy voice? Oricon asked a thousand men and women that question in a poll taken last month. Masaharu Fukuyama unsurprisingly landed at the top of the list of male celebrities, though actress Aya Sugimoto was a more unexpected choice to lead the female list.

Fukuyama's closest competition was from Shosuke Tanihara and Hiro Mizushima at #2 and #3, respectively. Kirin's Akira Kawashima placed 4th, above popular actor Hiroshi Tamaki. The bottom half of the top ten consisted of Gackt( 6 ), HYDE, Jin Akanishi, Hiroshi Abe, and Koshi Inaba (of B'z).

On the women's rankings, Kumi Koda came in second behind Sugimoto. Actresses Miki Maya, Hitomi Kuroki, and Rieko Miura took the next three slots. Ayumi Hamasaki was #6, followed by actress Kaori Momoi. Ringo Shiina, Yukie Nakama, and Norika Fujiwara completed the list.

Translation to the Interview

FIGHT FOR ART

Gackt, as a musician who has already attained considerable/eye-catching results, is also venturing into other fields. Various art forms like literature etc has allowed Gackt to come into contact with a variety of (working) partners, as well as gain much more inspiration and experience.

"To me, Music is work I've always been continuously engaged in. So you can say that when I am engaged in my music work, I am living within an enclosed space, and thus the flow of fresh ideas and feelings of open-ness is very limited. And there is a lack of stimuli for me too. However, it is different when i am filming a drama. When filming, a lot of actors gather together to work with one another, don't they? Within that group, there are not only people who like to communicate with one another, there are also people who like to learn new things. And also people who like to exchange news and information. So it can be said that when immersed in such an environment/atmosphere, a person will live a life where he will constantly discover fresh new things."

By grasping every collaboration opportunity, and through every person he had worked with, Gackt has gained new experiences as well as new means to express himself. And that is Gackt's biggest achievement while being in the Arts. Just like how his first challenge of acting as Uesugi Kenshin in the Taiga Drama "Fuurin Kazan" in 2007 has led him to know and work together with veteran actor Ogata Ken: "Being able to know Ogata Ken, has allowed me to achieve great developments in both my methods of expression and performance. To me, this is the turning point where both my performance in music, as well as my acting are greatly enhanced.


FIGHT FOR SINGER

Being a singer is his core profession. It is also the biggest battlefield in which Gackt challenges himself. Gackt may have weathered many failures and trying periods, overcoming many various hardships and obstacles, but when he finally catches glimpse of that moment of happiness, all of them vanish into thin air. The fans' smiles and courage to strive ahead, are the joys he pursues as a Singer.

"How shall I put this? It's during the times when I'm on-stage seeing everyone's happy smiles. In addition, when people - say for example, my fans - encounter hardship(s) and feel like they can't push on anymore... when they find the courage to stand up strong again and push forth under the encouragement of my songs; or when for the same reason they've found a cause for life (something they must do), these make me feel like my existence has a value. This is the happiest and most satisfying thing about me becoming a Singer.


FIGHT FOR MUSIC

Into the 9th year of his Solo career, all the changes and growth he's undergone has now become a part of Gackt. But, there is one thing along the path of his music career that he will never let go of. And that is "The faith to never give up!"

He initially ventured into music out of interest. After growing up, music had became a means of self-verification (to prove himself). And now, music has changed into the strength to encourage and impel other people.

Irregardless of how he looks at it, Gackt has never accepted compromise and 'letting up' when it comes to Music. By implementing this faith, he will always possess the strong emotions he has for music.* "I believe it because I've become an adult. However, my point of view has never changed from the beginning up till this day. And that is - I always maintain myself in a state of tense-ness and excitement {1}. Perhaps even when I die, I will still hold onto this kind of emotions."



{1} Actually 緊張 kinda means being nervous. I doubt he'll be nervous so I took it in the sense that he's always on the balls of his feet.. i.e. being tensed and alert
FIGHT FOR LIFE

This time around, Gackt came to Shanghai to attend the Leica Fashion Awards and to receive the "Most fashionable Japanese Artiste" award. Even in his everyday life, his dress sense and style reveals his own unique taste and personality. "Fundamentally I like clothes that possess feelings of tense-ness, the type that is agile and tight-fitting. If we're talking about the characteristics of the clothes or brands I choose, that's probably a fixation on my part. I like clothes that are combat-ready, this is the biggest principle when it comes to my choice of clothing. Because of this reason, you can see (he splits his legs and brings one up to against his forehead) that I am able to do this kind of action. Don't I look very flexible? You can't do this kind action if you don't regularly train for it oh~ (laughs)"
(I included the 'oh' which is kind of like a cute way of ending a sentence. kind of like a not-so-cutesy version of Japanese adding 'nya' to the end of their sentences. I didn't want to take it out because it made Gackt sound cute XDDD)

Every single move Gackt made - who performed a perfect demonstration in the middle of the interview - displays the advantages of his regular training. But when we touch on the topic "exercises", Gackt gave us a very unexpected reply.

"I don't excercise because I love to. Excercise is actually very troublesome, so its something which I don't even want to do. But, I have a very important criteria (for myself), and that is: Human life is full of uncertainties. So we must be ever-ready to protect our dearest (most important) person. If we were to be unable to protect our most important people during that instance (when something occurs), I think I will regret it for the rest of my life." Gackt, who is constantly in a state of readiness, certainly deserves the title of "FIGHTER"!


FIGHT FOR FUTURE

During this 3rd interview with EASY, Gackt once again emphasizes his desire and confidence to hold a LIVE within China. However, this time he added another name ---- S.K.I.N.

"Whether my personal concert, or S.K.I.N. concert will occur sooner, is still unclear as of now. Just which of the 2 will be earlier?... mmm.... my personal lives are constituted of 2 parts. The first is a stage with very strong 'performance' sense {1} , the other is a stage with an extremely strong "LIVE" sense {2}. It is already relatively difficult if we want to put a Live together just based on "performance sense' alone. But if we want to organize a concert that is based solely on "LIVE" sense alone, the possibility of that happening is there. When I'm performing with S.K.I.N., I only need to be responsible for my portions, so I don't need to prepare any performances. I only need to perform music itself. If we're considering based on these reasons, I guess that S.K.I.N. will be faster."

Although Gackt currently only mentions the probability of a concert, but based on his more detailed evaluations and planning, we believe that day is not far away.
