    everyone who calls themselves fans of gackt should fucking know he was in MM

    it's like calling yourself a fan of dragon ball and believing there's such a thing as super saiyan 100 nappa

    Yup. It's the digital era, it should be hard not to know something like that.
    It's probably going to boost Malice Mizer sales. He should have done this a long time ago when Columbia was releasing those crappy-ass anniversary and "best of" collections.

    My impression is that most Japanese fans don't take the approach that we do, as far as learning about the bands they're fans of. They're not into digging into the past and doing research on former members' projects etc.
    As I might have mentioned before, I think any regular reader of this forum knows more about Malice Mizer and the members' projects than 99+% of Japanese fans. (the other <1% being the old-school fans who were physically present for the old times)

    I think that just because people in Japan are ignorant of it doesn't mean the scene isn't spreading in other countries. I don't really go with the majority when it comes to a music scene, because there are always little sub-scenes coming from them that help define them. I don't find the majority meaningful in the slightest, visual kei definitely exists in countries outside japan, even if it's very little.

    And about Gackt singing Malice Mizer: Maybe he heard about Mana and Kozi (& Yu~Ki)'s little reunion and got nostalgic.

    HE'S GONNA SPARK A REUNION. ::meev::

    No, but seriously, I wonder what Mana thinks of this.

    considering he asked Sugizo about singing certain luna sea songs at the live, he probably talked with Mana and asked if it was ok to sing Au Revoir.

    I'm not sure he has to talk to Mana about it. They might all have the rights to all the songs, or he might only have to talk to someone at Columbia about it.

    But I have a feeling he probably dropped a line to Mana or someone at Midi:Nette just out of good faith. I think anyone would do that.

    Mana has to- rights belong to midi:nette and would definitely go through him.

    @Berserk: Same as I said above- it's not Mana that owns the rights personally, it's Midi:nette, just as no individule members own rights to the band stuff personally. It was a band effort, so the record company holds the stuff. So, Gackt's permissions would have to go through Midi:nette and Colombia since it's a Merveilles song.

    @Amatsu: The scene is IN Japan. Interest in what's going on with it (in the country) is spreading to people outside of Japan. As for your opinion of the majority, it technically doesn't matter since it's in the minority, because the majority is the majority and what is more widely seen by the public, and that's how it works. ::meev:: All in good faith, mind you. ;)

    i'm pretty sure you don't have to ask anyone if you want to cover a song live, unless you're releasing it. ::kozi::

    if he would ask for permission, i think it would be to Sony/Columbia and not Mana/MidiNette. Sony/Columbia are the owners of merveilles songs. but if he would like to notify mana, just to be nice, he could as well.

    I think Gackt ha been a lot more free with his expressiveness in recent years. Maybe he's finally chilled out a bit.

    Ah, it made me really happy too.

    Those words made me realize that Gackt's departure from the band must not have been as dramatic and infamous as some articles/opinions make it sound. Maybe he and the other Malice Mizer members had different ideas, maybe they had chosen different paths, maybe they don't talk among themselves anymore. But that dosen't mean they hate each other.

    I believe they respect each other as artist, as human beings.

    And Gack saying: "[...]with amazing members....." means he cherishes what he went trhough with MM. Right?


    [Excuse the HORRIBLE english. D:]
