Personality and talent Miki Sakajo was interviewed recently and spoke about an encounter with MALICE MIZER era GACKT, and how his words "If you smile at the end, that's enough for me" moved her.

GACKT now has an official account on the app '755'. It's very popular in Japan and many celebrities have accounts. It's kinda similar to LINE, in that messages can be sent to anyone that "watches" the "talk", but unlike LINE, fans can leave messages on the talk that can be viewed by anyone. The celebrities can also answer these messages, if they choose to.

The web version of GACKT's talk (that doesn't show the fan messages, only the official ones) can be found here - GACKT Official 755

GACKT appeared on Zenryaku, Tsuki no Ue Kara this Friday.

Here are a couple of links where you can watch the show.

GACKT updated his blog and blomaga. He spoke about his Lamborghinis, and used a scene and screencaps from Gundam to help illustrate his point (GACKT, your nerd is showing). He also spoke about how damage to his Murcielago led him to meeting some interesting people.

During GACKT's appearance on Zenryaku, they discussed a few lines from GHOST and focused on the inclusion of the word "plug" in the lyrics. The host spoke about car sparkplugs, and electrical plugs, and then GACKT mentioned men's plugs and demonstrated what he meant...

This week in GACKT-land...

Nemuri DVD - Thumbs Up

♥News♥

GACKT tweeted earlier this week for the first time since January.

The majority of his tweets were about his hair cut, which he pretty much did himself.

2015.04.15.05.jpg
2015.04.15.06.jpg

He called it a Gwashi cut, as this is a catchphrase used in the manga Makoto-chan. The lead character in this has a hair cut similiar to GACKT's.

After 'GACKT's Gwashi' trended on Twitter, he changed his profile image to this haircut. Stories on various news websites about his hair and tweets were some of the most read stories this week.

More photos and info under the cutCollapse )

GACKT's Facebook icon has also been updated to reflect the forthcoming release of Gakugenshu.

At the VARTIX showroom in Aoyama, Tokyo, there are also some GACKT goods on display.

GACKT updated his blog and blomaga and said he is back in Japan now. In both, he spoke about the issue of racial discrimination in continuation from his previous blog. His previous blog was pounced on by the media and became the source for many stories, and GACKT wants to make his position clearer. He also spoke on other forms of discrimination and as this new blog has already been picked up by the same media outlets as last time, I don't think his aim of quietening things down has quite worked...

The triple collaboration between GACKT, VARTIX and SHELLAC that was first spoken about several weeks ago is soon to begin with an exhibition in the VARTIX showrooms.

It's for a new clothing line that can be seen in GACKT's 2015-2016 calendar. The official VARTIX site updated with details and a few photos of GACKT wearing the clothes in New Zealand.

April 16th, 2015 to May 24th, 2015 at VARTIX SHOWROOMS.

In pursuing the goal of breaking the mundane and generic view of “man”, GACKT and VARTIX have teamed with SHELLAC in this triple collaboration project to express the concept of toughness and sensuality living together in harmony. From April 16th, 2015 this new project will be exhibited in VARTIX SHOWROOMS across the country.

The VARTIX site shows six photos... but there are actually eight

GACKT's OHP updated today with news of a new acting role.

The movie ‘ORIGAMI’, with a cameo appearance from GACKT, has been chosen for the short film corner at Cannes film festival!

■Cannes Film Festival short film class – ‘ORIGAMI’ introduction page.

Film details
‘ORIGAMI’ ※ the movie will be in English only
・Director : Ochi Kato [the Cannes website says he is the scriptwriter]
・Starring: Leona Wada, Kevin Clone, Natsuki Robertson, Yuko Hayashi, GACKT
・Film company: Cosmo Box
・Collaboration: Motion Picture Producers Association of Japan, Inc
・Japan screening date: To be decided

The synopsis from the Cannes introduction page says
After a poor woodsman frees a crane caught in a trap, he and his wife are visited by a maiden who weaves them a beautiful brocade. But with the freedom from poverty also comes a promise. Perhaps they cannot keep it, but what they learned had an effect on the world that extends even to this day.
