    You'll have to forgive my ignorance as I both hail from and reside in countries where basements aren't the norm, but what is a sub-basement?

    You know, the floor below the basement. If the basement is the -1st story (or the -1th ::mana::), the sub-basement is the -2nd. That's why Mrs. B had no reception down there XD
    This also means Gackt doesn't give the wi-fi password to his booty calls ::cred::

    I was imagining something more along the lines of a semi-basement, like a -0.5th story. :P

    Most homes here don't have basements so I think a sub-basement would be even more uncommon.

    My house had .5 basements growing up. It's called a crawlspace I guess? You couldn't stand up - you had to crawl.
    My parents used to make me go down there to get stuff but, since I was 8, I was convinced there were monsters in it.
    So I threw all my mom's plastic ice cubes in there first to scare them away and she didn't figure out where they kept disappearing to until we moved out 20 years later.
    The pictures support Hanachan's explanation.

    I wonder if it's even a "home", if he's really running his business out of the 4 above-ground floors. Not to mention all the keycards and whatnot XD
    Maybe he just bought an office building and converted the dungeon levels into his private lair... or alternatively converted some sort of house or apartment building into an office. The article makes it sound like it at least looks like a residence from outside. Either way it sounds like there are all kinds of zoning complications involved here ::ash::

    Anyway, who does everyone think is the real villain here?

    Mr. A for being a neglectful husband?
    Mrs. B for being an unfaithful wife?
    Gackt for being a horndog?
    NTT for not having cell phone reception underground?
    Cafe "F" for being too crowded?
    The building inspector for allowing business and residential activity under the same roof?
    Yumiko Shaku for not marrying Gackt and domesticating him?

    Just chiming in to point out that Gackt's house is pretty well known (at least since the IRS scandal thing) and it's a whole building indeed.

    Those photos are the known parts of the house/office/studio tho, so nothing new there, he's shown in on tv a few times even.

    Also, it may not be too hard to get inside, as (according to gackt) a fan once broke in to the studio and sort of hung out eating snacks until his sister (who lived there at the time) threw her out xD

    Here's the house btw:

    Apparently nicer houses in Setagaya do exist... for a price.

    Stepping down the ladder, 6 mil will get you something creative as concrete bunkers go:

    5 mil for something more like a regular house with a yard of sorts and an "audio system room":

    1 mil for a slightly more creative variation on the Barbie Minecraft:

    Of course none of these have sub-basements ::gaku::

    I'd love for Gackt to do that fan home remodelling thing he did with the other members back when he was in MM . I want to see that atrocious house ... with 3 sub-basements and a jacuzzi in each one ....

    I'm legitimately upset that the entrance isn't through the vending machine.
    Unless that door over on the left is just a distraction door, and he said he hates girls who eat snacks to throw everyone off the trail so they don't find the REAL door.

    Except snack girl. Didn't work on snack girl. What a legend.

    A bit of news on Gackt: apparently he's poking his head above ground on Clubhouse asof 3/10.
    https://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/5c71e3227e42751c06f4713fab7b277b403e4eb6
    The article is otherwise worthless, just "Celebrity X: Still friends with Gackt???"

    On the other hand, this Clubhouse thing is really something XD
    https://clubhousedb.com/user/gackt

    "Black Bitcoin Billionaires"
    "Entrepreneur Millionaire Secrets"
    "Millionaire Matchmaker" ::gaku::

    Mr. A's going to have to work pretty hard if Mrs. B wants to compete with that.

    TABLOID FILTH: https://taishu.jp/articles/-/101318?page=3

    Gackt Dropped from Endorsements After 6 Years! Tonde Saitama 2 Goes Back to the Drawing Board! On Top Of "Poor Physical Condition", Bunshun Drops the "Adultery In Nagoya" Bombshell! There's No Way Back From This!!

    Pages 1 and 2 mainly recap the story so far about his being stricken with illness and so on.
    Page 3: Gackt tweeted a message of concern after the earthquake in Fukushima in March of 2022, and his fans rejoiced and replied things like "Get well soon". However...


    Memories of GACKT's reported trysts with a Chubu-area married woman in a Nagoya hotel, as reported by Shukan Bunshun, are still fresh.
    "While GACKT was silent on the topic of his reported adultery, his physical condition and his extracurricular activities may be having an effect on his professional career. GACKT had starred in commercials for 'AGA Skin Clinic' since 2016, but it seems he's not been asked to return. They're urgently seeking a replacement for him. As GACKT is unable to film CMs while convalescing overseas, and he now has an image as a philanderer, companies aren't likely to renew their contracts with him." - A source from the entertainment business

    GACKT may be waiting to make his comeback, but will things ever be like they were for him in music, movies, TV, or CMs?
    On the other hand, actress Fumi Nikaido, GACKT's co-star in "Tonde Saitama", is now extremely busy and set to appear in foreign shows.

    TBH the hypocrisy on this kind of annoys me. Gackt innocence or guilt asidem adultry is probably the norm for the entertainment industry and seems fairly widespread in Japan. Yet as soon as someone gets caught they go full on drama and are like "OMG how could you this is the worst thing in the world you must be cancelled?!?!?"

    It's like well, I dunno. Same way YOU'RE doing it I guess lol cut the drama

    We'll see how serious this scandal even is. At least it wasn't about drugs or hanging out with criminals, something the Japanese take very seriously.

    Not too long ago a couple of comedians got cancelled in Japan and it was quite brutal. They still aired an episode of one show they had filmed with one of these comedians, but he was completely edited out of it. And he was the one hosting it, lmao.

    【サイズ】5号

    Well, today I learned that Japanese cakes have their own sizing system XD
    https://kitchen-report.net/cake-size/
    One 号 is equal to 3cm of diameter, so the Gackt cake is 15cm across. Or approximately 47.12cm in circumference.
