Who were Malice Mizer's roadies ? Wasn't K one, and Kamijo I think?
I know Kamijo was one. And wow, this is a pretty awesome release.
I really wish I had the money for it. XD someone is going to have some massive work ahead of them translating this stuff.
It's pretty cool Gackt still gives insight into the MM stuff.
I think it's very exciting ...I am seriously considering buying it. But I'll wait it out for a while.
cuz ya neva know...there might be a US release...maybe....
And yes I've read that Kamijo was a roadie...but I wish i had a valid source for that
*coughs* if anyone knows this as a fact please educate me on it...please...
Actually I could have sworn I read it on the Bonjour Honey forum thing and Kamijo said it in an interview.
OMG! I wonder who that secret guest could be covered in all those tattoos...Can't wait to find out XD
...Good old Meevers <3 He ain't discreet, that's for sure XD
To add my two cents, I've never heard of Kamijo being a roadie for anyone. Magazine scans would be nice, otherwise rumors from an online forum are sort of meaningless. :/
Box set looks like gackt just cashing in more of his chips as he gets closer and closer to 2010- his proposed end-of-activities date. Audio of his live dvds and tracks that we all have anyway? Sorry, not worth my money. If anything, "Justified" would be an exception, but right now that track title is just screaming 'american r&b pop' for some reason.
As for Gackt's tour, I went in to lawson today to try and buy a ticket and that machine f*#$@!# hates me. I got so far as to get it to mention gackt and the date I wanted, but that's as far as it would let me go- I couldn't highlight it or anything. So, I'll try again on sunday when I have a translator. *coughcough* Even if this show sucks (I'm not a fan of the vocal change), at least I can still reason it that I saw the same person that was in Malice Mizer all those years ago.
I read an article at Bonjour Honey in which Kamijo himself said he was a roadie for MM.
I found this from Flowers
and from Camuflagem:

So its true
yeah i think the tokyo hall shows are sold out. or at least for buying it advanced @ the lawson.
^im afraid so = (
they went on sale at 7pm and i got to a lawson around 10pm and they were sold out already. Is yahoo auction the only way to buy tickets now?
^ I was at the lawson at 7pm right when they went on sale and the tokyo ones were already sold out. (apparently they had 2 lottery drawings for tickets at the begining of the month but it wasn't written on the poster, it was on the loppi machine itself so I never noticed.)
I think those should be just for the advanced sales so if you want to wait till Nov. 1 and call the tokyo hall place you should get some ticket.
^ Well shit, that sucks.
Hey, wanna call for me? I'll pay you back. XD
lol no idea if that got through at all but thats good to hear, i guess im not sleeping on oct 31st cause i cant i miss this one again.
hope to see you guys there!
gackt's doing another 2nd chance thing for premium tickets again next weekend. lolz.
and if you guys go to the lawson gackt's featured in nov.'s issue. there's a short interview that's been translated and transcribed(comments)here.
Well, Ive heard Gackt's new song justified. It isnt bad.
That's kind of a disappointing state considering I feel like Gackt may be losing the power to wow me. I remember hearing songs like Oasis, or many of the Moon songs, or really any stuff pre-Single collection (though those single collections had some awesome songs, though they were all remakes).
Love Letter I thought was a nice album. Nothing like groundbreaking, but nice.
Diabolos has some good songs on it but it lacks variety and it just really isnt his most powerful stuff though it has it's moments.
Returner was a good song. Once again, it didnt wow me, but it's a solid song. I feel the same about Justified. It kind of reminds me of a little bit more upbeat Redemption. It even has the little electronic glitches that are present in a lot of Diabolos songs.
It's an ok song. Im hoping Gackt comes out with something truly epic. Maybe Ill like the song alot more when I hear a good quality version, but as of now, it's a solid song, but nothing amazing.
^ new song Justified?
ok i found it.
I agree with Nocturne. Gackt isn't wowing me much nowadays.
What's up ?
^ Uhhhh, less than a minute in and I can tell you what's wrong with that song. In fact, after the first five notes he sang I could tell you what's wrong with it. It sounds like a meshing of every freaking song on Diabolos.
Goddammit, Gackt! I thought you were finally starting to get into the groove of things again with Returner- a song which literally brought tears to my eyes when I watched/heard it- but this is just retrogressing!!
No wonder he's retiring- he's obviously out of ideas, and he's smart enough to call it quits when he can see the headlights from the train coming down the tunnel to wreck into him.
You know, at this point, I'd rather have him say that he's retiring for good, disappear for about 5 years, decide that he can't live without music, and then come back to all of us freshly inspired instead of turning out the utter crap he's been doing (save returner) since loveletter.
I'm only a minute into "Justified" and I don't even think I want to hear anymore.....
edit: Morbid curiosity got the better of me. Ok, so the only thing I can think of that's good is that Gackt is slowly starting to go back to his original (and BETTER) singing style. Thank god for that. ::kisaki::
Returner was good, Ai Senshi and Meguriai were good.
So I don't think we should reckon with him so quick.
Justified is ok, I had also preferred at least a more epical song but he knows that he's good with this kind of straight-rocker.
give me a ballad gackt!
I haven't listened to Justified yet, since I've hear that the sound quality is very poor. I really think it's better to hear the good quality version avec the PV before anything... Also before judging the song.
