    Redemption/Kimi no tame ni dekiru koto/Oasis/Lu:Na/Cube sweetie, I'm so sorry.

    I'm curious as to what the text in the video was but I probably don't wanna know? Although judging from the comments (and running some through Google translate), people seem to be finding this cringy as well lol.

    @~Z e n c h o u~ honestly the whole vampire born in the 1500s thing is super low on my ridiculousness scale given that other VK musicians also have wild claims in the name of their persona/art.

    I kinda wanna say that this whole decline started when all those gambling/sexual assault scandals came up? How long ago was that, even? But he seems to have fallen deeper into whatever this in the past five years.

    This is basically me for the whole video:

    Most of the text is just explaining exactly how you're supposed to be doing the "exercises" at any given moment. "Follow the rhythm", "Move only the one finger", etc.

    When did he move to Malaysia? That seems kind of like the turning point where he just hid himself away in his sleaze pit and started grifting the public full-time XD

    It sounds innocuous enough... but then you look at everything else that's happening in the video. ::erm::::erm:: I gasped when that thumbnail with the sex toy came out lol, homeboy really wants to us to recognize his skills or how pent-up he is. Or both.

    I did some googling and it sounds like he moved there in 2012-ish? Which I guess checks out with the timeline of his scandals and shit.

    Personally I was already turned off with the way he brushed off the allegations of sexual assault but his congratulatory message to Duterte was basically it for me.

    Eh... Hate to say it, but the MM anniversary's weakest part was the fact that all the original singers were missing. None of the guest singers were able to fill their shoes.

    Their voices were pretty important part of the music, so I would have liked Gackt to return for that one night.

    I certainly wasn't expecting Gackt to be rocking the Kim Jong-un haircut.

    Thank you. Didn't want to be the one to say it but omg yes.

    TBH though, if someone copied French designs with Japanese quality, I'd be all over that.
    Even if that someone were Roland and Guckt.
    That's how sick I am of cute bras and shoes and whatever that come apart after a couple wears thank you very much Made in France.

    I'll take the Kim Jong-un haircut over the auntie perm he's been sporting since early 2020 any day.

    That said, I wish I could unsee it.

    Does anyone have an english translation of the G&R fiasco apology on his YT channel?

    Thanks. I hate it. :cry:

    Some of his YT videos are so....::bleh::. Took a break from Gackt around 2010 musically (2013 completely... the tax evasion rumors and rape allegation made me noped my way out). Came back around 2019 by accident. I'm like....who are you and what have you done with Gackt? :shock:

    Idk but to me it sounds like he just has a lot of yes men who enable all his shenanigans to be coming up with such cringey shit. Maybe he just reeled it in in the early years because he was still building his presence as a pop star; now he probably just doesn't give a fuck (or he does considering how he's doing the absolute most) especially after all the scandals. Do people even watch him unironically these days?
    I'm curious about this Roland guy and how he got roped in with Gackt. How popular is he, actually?

    He's pretty well known, all my Japanese friends know 'of' him. I'm sure he has his fans and followers but I wouldn't really say he has any widespread or mainstream popularity.
