It was announced today that GACKT will have the lead role in the movie 'Karanukan', due for release in 2017. It's his first lead role in a movie in 14 years - since MOON CHILD.

Some random points (paraphrased from BARKS)

The movie is set amongst the beautiful nature of the Yaeyama Islands in Okinawa, and is a love story.
The title of the movie comes from 'god of the river'. Kara means 'river' [kawa], nu is the particle 'of' [no] and kan comes from 'god' [kami].
The movie will tie together Okinawan culture and love.
It is directed by Yasuhiro Hamano.
The male lead [GACKT] is confident, uniquely beautiful in body and mind and around 40 years old.
The female lead hasn't been cast yet, and auditions are being held. They are looking for girls aged between 18 to 25.
Applications are being taken until February 29th, and the final auditions will be held between April 21st to 24th at the 8th Annual Okinawa Film Festival.

Story
GACKT's character is a photographer. He's in the Yaeyama Islands to take photos of a beautiful girl against the backdrop of the stunning scenery. When shooting under a waterfall on Iriomote Island, there is a blinding light, so he shuts his eyes. When he opens them, she has unexpectedly disappeared... Four years pass, and he continues searching Yaeyama for her. As he commutes back and forth from Yaeyama, he is touched by the beautiful nature of Okinawa and he takes photos. He starts to become aware that he's fallen in love with her. Why did she disappear? Perhaps it was a dream, perhaps it was the river god 'Karanukan'...

[Note - I'm not 100% sure on the character names as none of the articles specify how they're read so I left them out.]

The movie's official website is here - http://karanukan.com/

GACKT has been spamming his Instagram tonight. He's been filming the concert videos for the LAST VISUALIVE, as his old friend Yoshitsune. He also told us that Yuki Kimisawa will be a dancer on the tour.

You can read more about it in the OGYD entry here.

MAX THE MOVIE starring GAKCT (and Yuki Kimsawa) is released on YouTube on February 6th. Here is an extended trailer. It is also a collection of trailers that concentrate on one actor at a time. GACKT's section starts at 4:19 and is immediately followed by Yuki Kimisawa's, which also features GACKT's character a little.



GACKT met with Minoru Kato, the CEO of Ducati bikes. It seems that they spoke about a possible collaboration (GACKT also GACKTstagrammed about this)

How are you doing babies? I had a press conference of Oracle today. Do you know it? It's the one of the biggest beauty skin clinic in Asia. He is an executive manager though. Hahaha. He is a wonderful person.
Today was an ORACLE press conference. Although he's in charge, he's a great guy. I'll try squeezing him. Hahaha.

On January 11th, DAIGO and Keiko Kitagawa got married! On the 12th, GACKT sent a message of congratulations to a TV show that DAIGO was appearing on.



When DAIGO proposed to Keiko, his proposal words were "KSK", which stands for "kekkon shite kudasai" or, "please marry me". So, when GACKT sent his message along he carried on that theme by saying "KK OMDT GMS" - "kekkon omedetou gozaimasu, "congratulations on your marriage".

This week in GACKT-land...

Welcome to the first Week in Review and CAGS of 2016!!

♥News♥


16 EXTRA LAST VISUALIVE DATES ANNOUNCED!!



It’s been seven years since ‘VISUALIVE ARENA TOUR 2009 REQUIEM ET REMINISCENCE II ~Chinkon to Saisei~’, GACKT’s last ‘VISUALIVE’ concept tour.
『VISUAL』+『ALIVE』+『LIVE』=『VISUALIVE』
It is a one and only, unique concert made by GACKT that combines movies, performance and music.
Already, many of the 25 shows have sold out, so 16 more shows have been added!

For full details of the new dates, check out the OGYD entry here - http://ohgacktyoudidnt.livejournal.com/601522.html

As always, ticket sales discussions are here - http://ohgacktyoudidnt.livejournal.com/587772.html There are some tickets for sale in there, so if you're looking for tickets check it out!

While GACKT has been abroad recording, YOU has also been doing some recording but his recording is the soundtrack for the play 'Honganji'. The production company behind it is the same one that supported MOON SAGA, so there is a lot of staff cross-over between the two.

2016.01.09 - YOU 01.jpg

The guy with YOU is Yuzuru Jinma, who handles all of GACKT's orchestra arrangements - including the two concerts with the Tokyo Philharmonic.

It appears that GACKT was house hunting in Kuala Lumpur this week.

2016.01.05 - Wan Sean Shariff.jpg

So I told my Japanese client that I was showing a house to another client which is also Japanese by the name of Gackt, I thought maybe they knew each other since they were both Japanese... my client then immediately told me " you better take a picture with him! " I was like errrrr ok! Little did I know, the guy standing beside me in the picture is a Japanese icon that holds the male soloist record for most top ten consecutive singles in Japan music history, he's even had involvement with the Final Fantasy franchise & made a movie that was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.. Wow, speechless! #Gackt

GACKT tweeted this week and received lots of good press for how nicely he handled the loss of his winning streak at Kakuzuke Check due to the incorrect answers of his partners. He also, as promised, updated his Twitter icon.
