    yes it seems that he has a new fixation :roll:
    i like him doing varied stuff, but fixations are annoying
    like him dieing, let's say that it was interesting the first time i've seen him doing it (even if it gave me the creeps), but when i've realized that this is one of his fixations :mad: my reaction changed from 'ok, interesting >.>' to 'oh enough already, find something else will ya?!'
    now we have the robot thing going on... i hope it's not permanent
    i wonder what we'll have next ::shifty::

    regarding the song
    i've heard too that neither the words nor the music are by him, i have nothing against him singing music that was created for him by someone else, but i would have loved to see what he would have come with on his own
    the song is the soundtrack for Kamen Rider Decade The Movie: All Riders VS Great Shocker, he is Riderman in this movie.... hence the robotic arm

    the first one Journey through the decade was for Kamen Rider Decade the series, this one - The Next Decade is for the movie i mentioned above
    in the movie he will wear the same outfit as in the videoclip, thank god he won't wear spandex ::bleh::

    When I first heard it I thought right away that it sounded like a Gackt composition. :/

    LOL He's going to be kamen rider? Why is there no facepalm emote.....?

    Anyway, Gackt does good death scenes. I'll never refuse the man if he wants to do another one of those. Between moonchild and returner, it generally tends to be pretty gripping. ::kisaki::

    yes, he is Riderman
    the bad guy that turns out to be good?! ::shifty::
    not sure about it... they all say he is some sort of anti-hero

    i guess we will wait and see
    the movie was released in Japan on 8th of August
    i wonder if he will die in this movie too

    What's with Gackt's weird accent that he seemed to develop over time that he used to not have (for example: listen to the original Mizerable, and then the newer gladiator version)

    Is it just a different style of singing? Because it seriously sounds strange to me. xD I've never heard any other Japanese singer use that type of accent.

    in regard to his 'original' singing style,

    I didn't realize this until a japanese friend pointed it out to me (now obvious) but my friend was telling me he liked some of Gackt's songs because they sounded "enka"..y XD

    a thought that came to was, "is this gackt trying to add to his umm.. japanese/asian -ness? he changed the logo for the same reason and curious is singing this style was influenced the same"

    furthermore , I personally don't think he could sing in his old style even if he wanted to. too much strain/smoking/nose jobs over time.

    A million seconds.

    I think he's starting to figure this fact out, though. He seems to be going back to his original ways more and more, or mixing the two together. (or they get mixed because he forgets and get carried away with the song, and........ ::gaku:: )

    So I guess he isn't writing the music/lyrics on these Kamen rider songs? Hmm...

    So i'm not the only one who thinks that :).
    I've had this feeling, but i wasn't sure.
    I was thinking that maybe i'm hearing things :P.

    And yeah he should go back to his old way of singing. He has to much vibrato in his songs (I'm not a music expert, but i've read that that's how this EEEEeeeEEEEeeee thing is called) and i don't like the way it sounds.
    I was listening to the new version of Sayonara and the old one.
    I got used to the new version, but i prefer the old one by far, because of the way he sings it.

    ^ Gackt's 'new' way of singing sounds like he's choking for air, and that's never good. :(

    Ah well, as I said, I think he's starting to get the hint- either that, or his curiosity for this experimentation is waning.

    ^ Good luck if he is. Maybe he's found some inspiration to continue it, and continue it well. :)
