GACKT – MOON SAGA Collaboration with CLAMP

In 2012, GACKT and CLAMP (creators of manga titles such as Tokyo Babylon, Magical Knight Rayearth, Card Captor Sakura, xxxHolic and more) will be collaborating together on the next stage of GACKT’s MOON SAGA concept, but in the form of a stage production. It is titled “MOON SAGA Yoshitsune Hiden” (or “MOON SAGA: The Secret of Yoshitsune“), where GACKT will play the lead role of Minamoto no Yoshitsune, a general of the Minamoto clan during the late Heian/early Kamakura periods of Japan. There are no details on the story itself as of yet, but this version of Yoshitsune will have some sort of supernatural powers…
CLAMP will also be providing the artwork and producing a manga around MOON SAGA. An anime, game, film, and more based on the project are in the works.

The play production will run from July 15th to August 26th and will run in Tokyo, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Osaka.

And because of that, I eventually found myself watching Fuurin Kazan in 2007. And that, in turn, led me to become interested in GACKT. So, for me, the genesis of becoming a G fan is all due to my interest in the Yoshitsune samurai drama.
