Mr. Brain episode 1 has finally premiered.
I have not yet found a translated version... but for those who enjoy Japanese film in it's raw form... here's Mr. Brain.
watch before it is removed for copyright infringement. (The last video had it's sound removed for this issue... so you'll be watching video with no sound. lol)
if you are not interested in the show and just want Gackt... the preview for his episode is at the bottom.
Episode 1 Part 1
Episode 1 Part 2
What is a Gackt doll you say? *GASP*! you don't know???
well, here are a few examples of "Gackt" dolls.
cool aren't they? the dolls belong to friends on a Asian Ball Jointed Doll club site called Dream Of Angel.
well, here are the dolls I just got in. Now the Gackt doll looks pretty much like Gackt if you compare the face to the pictures of Gackt (especially the nose and mouth in the first two pics below.)
unfortunately, the second doll, (Gackt as Kenshin from Fuurin Kazan) is identical to the first one... but the wig is a bit big, and the skin is washed out by the camera flash, so it looks a bit different on film. In person without the big wig he looks better. (I have a new wig on order.)
(that's Gackt with my other doll, Byakuya)

according to "The Daily Yomiuri", when it comes to "Mr. Brain"
Singer-songwriter Gackt and kabuki actor Ichikawa Ebizo both will make their first commercial network TV drama appearances in the series.
In Episode 1, Ichikawa plays a detective dealing with underworld cases and rumored to be on the take. In Episode 2, Gackt appears as a death row inmate.
Mr. Brain's synopsis:
Ryusuke Tsukumo (Kimura) was once a club host but after suffering a brain injury, he recovered and pursued a career in psychology. He's now an unconventional police psychologist who thinks far outside the box when it comes to crime and his own fashion sense. Haruka Ayase is his assistant at the National Research Institute of Police Science, where he works in a crime lab with experts on DNA, profiling, surveillance cameras, computers, poisons and other highly technical specialties. His costars also include a mouse in a maze and Teruyuki Kagawa and Hiro Mizushima as the detectives who continually seek his help.
For those who've ever seen the USA series "Monk" starring Tony Shalhoub... it sounds almost along those lines. ^_^
