GACKT Kamen Rider Box Office Hit

Male artist GACKT took part in the new Kamen Rider movie (10th Heisei version). In 'Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Great Shocker', GACKT acted as Kamen Rider #4. The movie was released the day before yesterday at more than 345 theaters, attracting both young and old Kamen Rider fans alike. Film production and distribution company, Toho Company Ltd. estimates that the new film's opening day earning was more than 2.5 times that of last year's movie, 'Kamen Rider Kiva'. The box office earnings was at 2 billion yen. It has potential to become the biggest selling Kamen Rider movie. Not only did GACKT take part in the film, he also sang the theme song for it, titled 'The Next Decade'.


Info About Our GACKT Role

Riderman (ライダーマン, Raidāman?) (also known as The Avenging Demon, Kamen Rider Yongo, or Kamen Rider #4) is a fictional character, an anti-heroic protagonist from the tokusatsu television series, Kamen Rider V3. He was the first Kamen Rider to wield a weapon. In the original series, he is portrayed by Takehisa Yamaguchi (山口 豪久, Yamaguchi Takehisa?), while in the movie Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Great Shocker he is portrayed by solo musical artist Gackt.

He uses a regular Suzuki 250cc motorbike, dubbed the "Rider Machine".

In 2009, Kyoto University students hacked the Dr. Orita Statue to resemble Riderman. They have performed other similar acts in the past to make the statue appear to be other figures of Japanese popular culture.

Jōji Yūki

His real name is Jōji Yūki (結城丈二, Yūki Jōji?), a former member of the organization known as DESTRON.

Fictional character biography

Sometime during his youth, Jōji Yūki was abandoned and was considering suicide when The Great Leader personally intervened and adopted him. Yuki considered him his savior and willingly swore allegiance to Destron. He served loyally for DESTRON's cause as top scientist until a jealous Marshall Armor framed him for being a traitor of DESTRON to cover up his failures of defeating Kamen Rider V3 . As a result, he was sentenced to be tortured to death by being dipped into a pool of acid, which resulted in the loss of his right arm. At first, he only sees Marshall Armor as his enemy and not the DESTRON Organization itself; furthermore, to prove his innocence to DESTRON, he seeks out to defeat Kamen Rider V3. However, he learns the truth about DESTRON and eventually joins Kamen Rider V3's cause. Even after joining V3 his devotion to The Great Leader was so strong he was willing to sacrifice himself to protect him by jumping in the way of V3's Fatal Kick. When asked by Kazami why he did such a thing he revealed his past relationship with the Leader and admitted that he simply couldn't let his savior be killed right in front of him. He pledges himself to V3's mission after this. Near the end of the series, he supposedly died in a Pluton Rocket explosion. Kamen Rider V3 cried out that he is Kamen Rider #4.

In reality, he manages to survive. In the Kamen Rider Spirits manga, it explains how he survived the explosion and landed in Tahiti where he lost his memory, but regained it when fighting a crab kaijin who was really a resurrected Marshall Armor.

He is among the veteran Kamen Riders who help Kamen Rider BLACK RX fight the Crisis Empire near the series finale.

Cassette Arms (or Attachment Arms)

What Riderman lacked in technological strength of V3, as well as the Riders before him, Ichigo and Nigo, he made up for in persistence, smarts, and his wide array of prosthetic weapons to meet his needs. His weapons also were the basis for the "Rider Slash" and "Rider Shooting."

* Rope Arm: Riderman's Default Arm, which is used in various ways. As means of escape, climbing, and combat. The arm itself has modified attachments for Yuuki to use and adjust to various situations. There is his default Hook Arm, with hook attachment, for climbing and combat. When the mace end is attached, he gets his Swing Arm, which can be extended and used as a flailing weapon. Then, there's the Net Arm, where Yuuki's arm can shoot out a net to capture and restrain enemies (by Kamen Rider Spirits, it appears that this net is fireproof). Finally, there's the Sickle Arm which has been seen in various promotion; and yet, wasn't used in the series. Based on the photos, it is assumed it is simply used for combat.
* Power Arm: Riderman's strongest weapon, which increases Yuuki's attack in battle. Its primary use is to hack away at both obstacles, such as doors, and opponents. This weapon could've been easily used as a finishing attack according to some fans.
* Drill Arm: Another weapon could've been easily used as a finishing move. It was only seen being used as an infiltration tool. It must be plugged in order for it to work best, although it will still work otherwise (by Kamen Rider Spirits, it appears to work just fine without external power).
* Machine Gun Arm: This weapon was only seen in the Kamen Rider Spirits manga. It was used to destroy the crab mutant in the manga, which had the appearance to be a regular machine gun.
* Spray Arm: Currently, it is only an unused concept. Its function was described as a weapon which sprays gas or smoke to distract adversaries.
* Octopus Arm: Currently, it is only an unused concept. Its function is described as a climbing tool, each finger on the hand resembling octopus tentacles.

Gackt does another "Kamen Rider" theme

Gackt has already provided two theme songs for the "Kamen Rider" franchise, and now he is doing another one for the next movie. His new song "Stay the Decade Alive" will be used in "Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Double & Decade Movie Taisen 2010," which opens in theaters on December 12.

Gackt's "Journey through the Decade," released in March, was his first "Kamen Rider" tie-in as the theme song to the television series "Kamen Rider Decade." He followed that up in August with "The Next Decade," used in the movie "Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker." He also appeared in that film as a character named Riderman.

"Stay the Decade Alive" is his third tie-in single, set for release on January 1, 2010. It will be sold in the typical CD and CD+DVD editions, plus a limited memorial edition that contains two DVDs and a special booklet with words from Gackt on the "Kamen Rider Decade" series.

- He is playing the main character for a live action play called "Nemuri Kyoshiro"


- He has been doing concerts called "Yellow Fried Chickenz" (2010) in Japan.
They were a guy-only concerts and he takes off his shirt during concerts.



- He is now doing YFC concerts overseas and now is in Europe. (These are not guy-only concerts)

(However, the full song can be heard and a preview of the PV is on YT)
The clothes he is wearing is a tribute to Micheal Jackson.



Hope that helps!
