We have a release date for Akumu-chan The Movie! It will hit cinemas in Japan on 2014/5/3, meaning it will be released during the big Golden Week holiday.
Some clips from the movie were shown on PON! today. There is no GACKT in the video.
It shows some of the characters we already know from the TV series and introduces chibi-Yumeoji (note - that isn't the official character name XD). This character is played by Marius Yo from the Johnnies band Sexy Zone. His character is a new transfer student at the school that appears in the dreams of the other students and as Yumeoji to Akumu-chan.
GACKT was in Malaysia a couple of days ago and performed the Japanese national anthem, Kimi Ga Yo, at a football match between the Malaysian Under 23 side and FC Ryukyu (Okinawa's football team).
You can watch a fancam of his performance here - Facebook video
GACKT was kind enough to update his blomaga with many photos from his appearance there.( +8Collapse )

The Camui Gakuen tour will hit the Chiba campus on December 13th for three shows and the staff have updated the staff blog in anticipation. The photo posted is from the Nagoya campus.
Speaking of Gakuen, some rehearsal videos have been posted. Please check under the spoiler cut for them and also the names of the members involved in the videos...
CamuiGangnam Style by PSY. Shinnosu is playing the PSY role and the dancers are Val, Hayato, Taya, Wang and EGA
Mister by Kara. The senpais on stage are YOU, Takumi, Sato, Val and Hayato.
Hopefully they will post a video of the third K-POP song performed, Big Bang's Fantastic Baby, as that one will have Kaicho involved.
Also, Excite Japan will be covering Camui Gakuen at the final Chiba show on December 15th. So there should be photos and reports from the tour (either after that show, or when the tour finishes in Sendai on the 22nd).
SourcesBlomagaGACKT EYESDresser JapanG&D Staff blogGACKT Official YouTubeSorry for the lack of updates recently. My computer completely died for a couple of weeks and my free time in recent days has been spent trying to reinstall everything and rescue the information I lost. There has been a million other updates and photos, especially from Gakuen, that I haven't got the time to post. Most of it has been tweeted though as that's far easier to manage from an iPhone than LJ is.
If there ever are any updates and news items, don't think that it's only me that can post them. I'd be very grateful if other people did from time to time.
