Fanclub sales begin on September 1st for the premium seats, and September 10th for the general seats. There is no information about non-fanclub sales yet.

There have been some new BIG CMs on TV the last few days, and they're finally on YouTube.

Posters for this ad campaign can be seen on various trains throughout Japan, also.

It has been announced that 243,200 people attended the 90th Kenshin Kousai (including 2,500 who attended the day before the festival started). This beats the previous record set in 2010 of 240,211 people.

Oyakata-sama led his troops into battle at today's Kenshin Kousai.

barks 01.jpg

This year, his army included MOON SAGA actors Takaki Uda and Yuki Kimisawa (Yuki-senpai!!!), GemCEREY/VARTIX CEO Takeshi Nakano, and of course YOU, CHACHA, TAKUMI and Sato.

Under the cut are more professional photos from the event and various photos from the senpais.

The press conference from August 22nd.

Here's a professional video of the parade, from Joetsu Journal.

Here is a recording of the USTREAM, er, stream, of the Battle of Kawanakajima re-enactment. GACKT's next single ARROW starts at 1:35 and is played in its entirety, although some fireworks interrupt the end a little.

If the embed doesn't work, you can access it here

Oyakata-sama looked as majestic as always, but I was ridiculously happy when I spotted Yuki behind him, hahahaha.

Thoughts on ARROW? It's good to hear how the sample on the OHP fits into a song now.

22 August 2015 @ 11:01 pm
GACKT is in Joetsu, ready to reprise his role as Uesugi Kenshin in the 90th Kenshin Kousai.

Today, there was a press conference and he made his annual visit to Rinsenji Temple to lay flowers at Kenshin's grave.

GACKT's appearance at the festival will be streamed online via USTREAM. It starts at 16:00, Japanese time.

You can view it here > http://www.ustream.tv/channel/jcvfan

Just a quick post because I wanted to make sure everyone saw the USTREAM link!

GACKT updated his blog and blomaga too, so check those out!

21 August 2015 @ 01:57 am
GACKT's 46th single will be called 'ARROW' and it will be played for the first time at the Kenshin Kousai this weekend.

It's due for release on October 7th.

Some more from GACKT's time in Phuket.

He went cable wakeboarding with Taijiro Nakamura from the company STONE MARKET (they produced the bracelet made for GACKT's 39th birthday).

Wetsuit on...

So yep, looks like we're hearing new music this weekend! Last year, Akatsukizukuyo was played in part for the first time at the Kousai too.

GACKT was a guest on Nico Raji Monday yesterday. It was a live broadcast from Phuket, Thailand.

Gokigenyo!! Kaicho has given us a video comment advertising the upcoming performance of S.E.X JAPAN at the Kishidan Banpaku festival.

This is the video that GACKT talked about in his blog last week.

Next year will be GACKT’s LAST VISUALIVE, and I know that many LOVERS are thinking of seeing the shows.

This is the OGYD planning post - here we’ll have information on how to get to the shows. It’ll focus mainly on travel and those all important tickets. It will also be the ticket selling/buying post.

Underneath the cut are the tour dates, with some additional information such as capacity, train station information and their websites.

Tour datesCollapse )

Travel information

Train route search sites [will also show flights, if that is an option]

If you are planning on traveling across the country, then a JR pass might be a good investment - http://www.japanrailpass.net/en/

Ticket information

No information yet

G&LOVERS fan club sales
The G&LOVERS lottery begins on September 10th. You have until August 31st to join the fanclub if you want to apply for this ticket lottery.
No further information yet.

General [non-fanclub] sales
No information yet. There will be sales via ePlus (at some point)

Private sales
Extra tickets are often sold via Yahoo Auctions, Ticket Camp and ticket.co.jp. The prices are likely to be high here, and the sites are Japan only.
You may be able to pick up tickets on the day, either as tojitsuken [same day ticket sales in the case of non-sold out shows] or from fans who have extras.

If any OGYD members have any extra tickets, they can be sold here. Any sales are between the buyer and seller, and not the responsibility of OGYD.

Any extra info will be updated in this post. I recommend that if you are thinking of going, that you track this post. Then any comments will be emailed to you directly.

This week in GACKT-land...


GACKT will be on NicoNico tomorrow, Monday August 17th.

The broadcast will be from Thailand, and why it's from Thailand will hopefully be explained during the broadcast. Viewers are being asked to send in their troubles, as GACKT will be giving advice again.

The 'pre-show' starts from 5pm here > http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv231249397
The main show starts from 7pm here > http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv228969084


GACKT updated his blomaga and blog. He spoke about meeting with Seito Kaicho, as Kaicho was recording a video for the upcoming S.E.X. JAPAN performance at the Kishidan Banpaku festival. GACKT went on a mission to karaoke to find some songs for Kaicho to sing, and then linked that into talking about balancing work and play.

Next weekend is the Kenshin Kousai!!! So, have an Oyakata-sama.

barks 01

The Kousai will be broadcast on local TV in Joetsu again, so that probably means it will be streamed online again, as it has been for the last few years.

CAAAAGS! How was your week?

Anything planned for next week?

Or, any recommendations for Kaicho to sing?

The G&LOVERS ticket sales will begin from September 10th. The FC is still only available to those with Japanese addresses, but people who sign up before August 31st will be able to take part in these sales.

There is a nifty new page that talks about the FC and its benefits, and it has a lot of photos that haven't been seen outside of the FC magazines before.

+ a lotCollapse )

[Note - I paraphrased and skipped a couple of things, but all the text accompanying those photos is from the website itself]

Chachamaru has started a new Twitter and Facebook under the name of Cha Club. The purpose of this is not just to deliver Chacha news, but Chacha is also hoping to introduce new artists, pro and amateur, from all over the world.

This week, it's a video instead.

The VISUALIVE hype video.

So, back onto the LAST VISUALIVE theme. For BOB, we had two big posts to help people who were thinking of attending. One was a ticket post and the other was a general post for everything else. I was thinking that something along the same lines would be useful for the LAST VISUALIVE.

Does anyone have any ideas on what else might be useful?

And of course, it's CAGS time! So, CAGS away! I feel like this is a good week for a GACKT photo and gif spam week. It's been a while since we've had one...

It will have been seven years since GACKT's last VISUALIVE concept tour, VISUALIVE ARENA TOUR 2009 REQUIEM ET REMINISCENCE II.

※March 19th show in Misato City Cultural Hall is fanclub only

Preceeding ticket sales for GACKT OFFICIAL FAN CLUB G&LOVERS members begins from September 10th. It will be for members who join before August 31st.

GACKT's official homepage is still having problems displaying the dates properly, but there is a 15 second clip of new music that plays on the page. You can hear it at the website or these are the direct links to the files in mp3 format, or wav (it's the same).

There is also a VISUALIVE hype video. It promotes the concept in general, more so than gives any specifics about this LAST VISUALIVE.

Much like BOB, we'll get some helpful entries sorted out here in OGYD for people who might want to go to Japan for this.

I've left the Japanese in for the venue names because if you want to Google them and check out access/distance from Tokyo etcetera, it's easier to find the information if you start from Japanese. A lot of the venues do have English sites, or at least English navigation.

It's finally happening... Three years after he first announced it. (But really, it isn't going to finish on July 2nd, now is it??)

Oooh, I can finally change the 201? visualive tag to 2016 visualive now!
