well... there's been no real Gackt news as of late. Hopefully that's because he's locked himself away somewhere and is working ultra hard at a new album, tv show or S.K.I.N. to ready himself for a S.K.I.N. American Tour. lol.
The only really news on Gackt has to do with Television appearances.
he's appeared on a few shows recently, one being Waratte Iitomo. I don't know much about that show, so I searched for info and found this on another great blog... Gakuhai.
This show seems to be the type of show where a guest comes on to talk, usually flowers from other stars are sent to them... (For Gackt... Hyde sent him flowers, I think congratulating him for being on the show).
Then when they're done with their appearance, they nominate another star to appear on the show next.
It seems, according to Gakuhai, Gackt nominated TMRevolution to be next.
the Next thing is about Fuurin Kazan. I really love this show. For those who haven't read my [ 風林火山 (gackt in Fuurin Kazan) ] blog on my myspace account ,
I've been actively promoting buying this box set when it comes out on DVD. Gackt doesn't appear in the first half of the show, its mostly backstory to our main character, Yamamoto Kansuke. I thought I'd be bored until Gackt appeared, but in actuallity, even sans Gackt, it was an awesome adaptation of a very good book. (Samurai Banners of Furin Kazan).
All of the actors do a great job, and its a very emotionally tugging story that has comedy, tear jerking moments, LOTS of action- something for everyone.
Anyway. They're pretty much done filming the series. Just a few wrap up scenes and it should be over soon.
They're on episode 36 in Japan, maybe 37 by now... and the series is only 49 episodes long.
due to my vactation, doctors appointments still stemming from a serious car accident I was in back in November, and such... I've fallen behind and am only 26 episodes into the raw, and I've only been able to translate 9 episodes to English. (I can't wait for the box set. Translating is hard work!)
But like I said, the series is great, and it would be well worth the money for when the box set comes out!! So look for it.
Here are two Gackt related Youtube vids... promos for episodes 35 and 36 of Fuurin Kazan

if I can find a video for the Waratte Iitomo episode, I'll post it.
Sore Dewa for now!
