FACKTS

GACKT + fact = FACKT

*shot for the lame pun*
Anyways, below you’ll find a list of known and unknown “fackts” about the man we all love~! If there’s a “fackt” that you think should be up here, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below and I’ll add it to the list n.n

Basics:
•GACKT is the middle child of three, having an older sister and a younger brother.
•Around staff his nickname is 魔王さま (maou-sama), which literally means Demon King, because he pushes his staff to work very hard (which in turn makes them think he might be evil XD). Some translators like to render it as Devil King or Satan, but they still refer to the same Japanese phrase (thanks amaia~!).
•GACKT claims that he can see spirits and has been able to ever since he nearly drowned in the Okinawa Sea when he was seven years old.
•His favorite colors are black and white.
•Although GACKT is mainly seen writing with his left hand, he is actually ambidextrous.
•His real eye color is a dark brown. He has many different colored contacts but is usually seen wearing his signature blue contacts.

Early Life:
•GACKT has had a harsh childhood:
1) GACKT and his siblings were only allowed to watch educational t.v. He was also forced to play the piano since the age of three.
2) After a near-death experience in the Okinawa Sea at age seven, he claimed he could see the spirits of the dead. His family would not believe him and began to think he was mentally unstable.
3) At the age of ten, GACKT was taken to the hospital due to a gastrointestinal problem and had to stay in the pediatric ward for a long period of time, along with other children who were terminally ill. He would often make friends with kids who would die a few days later. Only when he began imitating doctors and nurses was he deemed “normal” enough to leave.
•He was a very mischievous and reckless child growing up – pulling pranks, getting into trouble, and having one too many near-death experiences (15 to be exact).
•Before he decided to go into the music business, GACKT held multiple jobs as a host, casino dealer, and sound technician.

Personality:
•The man is very competitive. In his own words, “It’s not that I want to win; I just don’t want to lose.” If you watch any of the game programs that GACKT participates in, you’ll come to find that he usually ends up winning too!
•He is a perfectionist in everything he does. He doesn’t like to half-ass things and will not stop working on a project until he is satisfied with the results.
•GACKT hates going on t.v. because he gets really nervous and shy.
•After finishing a project, GACKT always makes sure to thank and shake the hands of every person involved.
• He trains and works harder than most people in order to win against his weaker, lazier sides.

Home:
•His house is located in an apartment building and consists of many floors. His sister has also lived with him at one point, though it is unknown if she still does. He currently resides in Tokyo.
•His house includes a dojo, a bar, and a waterfall in his bedroom.
•He decorated his home so that it is uncomfortable to him. This is so he won’t spend as much time there and will want to go out more.

Pets:
•He currently has 4 pets, all dogs. The only one we know of is his long-haired white chihuahua named Eneru (or Ener). GACKT calls him Ene-tan.
•GACKT had a maine coon cat named Mei, but in a recent interview he mentioned he did not have any cats, so it’s possible she either ran away or passed away.
•His minature daschund named Belle Constantine Chappy is probably the best known pet to fans, but sadly she passed away in 2007.
•Interestingly enough, GACKT prefers cats over dogs.

Health and Nutrition:
•He claims to have 6% body fat – the abs prove it too~ Recently his body fat has moved up to 10% and he has gained more muscle, which is perhaps why he looks “healthier” to many fans.
•GACKT works out daily. During tours, he will train with the band and dancers for 5 hours everyday. Some of the exercises they do include push-ups, Tae-Kwon-Do, back flips, crunches, sparring, and pull-ups.
•He likes to be flexible and uses machines, such as the infamous “Crotch Splitter,” to accomplish this.
•His waist line is about 70-71 cm.
•GACKT used to be quite the heavy smoker, but he has quit smoking since 2006.
•GACKT doesn’t like many sweet foods. That’s not to say that he does not eat them at all; he just doesn’t go crazy when presented with an assortment of chocolates.
•In order to maintain his weight and figure, GACKT has taken it upon himself to cut carbs off from his diet, going so far as not eating any rice for 10 years. He does eat carbs once in a little while though.
•He likes spicy foods like kimchee and curry.
•His favorite ramen comes from Miyoshi, a ramen shop in Kyoto. He eats their ramen on his birthday as a little treat to himself~
•GACKT can cook things like curry, but it takes him four days to prepare a meal. It starts with going to the store and buying the meat, then to cooking it and inviting people over to eat (Look up “pork belly blocks” or “butabara” on YouTube if you haven’t seen it already :p)
•If he invites you over to eat, you must first fight and spar with his bodyguards and then GACKT himself. This proves that you deserve to eat after working out for so long. Basically the man wants you to earn your right to eat. I know, crazy, and I doubt it’s all true lol
•If one of his staff members needs to go on a diet, GACKT will join them for support.
•GACKT opened his own restaurant called the Tamaly Bar back in 2004. It was a place where he and the staff could hang out but was closed down in 2006. It has been re-opened as a section on the DEARS Village site (thanks amaia~!)
•GACKT has his own personal chef, Izumi-san, who blogs every now and again on the Tamaly Bar section in DEARS Village.
•GACKT is quite the heavy drinker. His birthday is usually referred to as “Hell” because of all the drinking that goes on!
•Apparently when GACKT gets drunk, he first laughs, then cries, and then gets violent – yikes!
•He likes white wine, but drinks other alcoholic drinks like vodka and whatnot.
•He usually sleeps for about 2-3 hours everyday. The time he should be using for sleep is spent on training or working.

Love and Relationships:
•Ever notice the onyx bracelets that GACKT and Job wear? GACKT gives these bracelets out to his friends for protection. The first time he did this was when he was ten years old. He gave his onyx ring to a friend for good luck when she was going to study overseas. She got into a car crash with her friend but managed to be the only one who did not get hurt. The onyx ring couldn’t be found after the crash. The onyx beads also represent the friendship that a person has with GACKT.
•He claims that he can have sex up to 8 hours… Yeah *cough cough*
•GACKT was once married to a Korean woman, but due to some crazy rabid fangirls, they divorced. He has stated that he would not like to get married again T^T…
•GACKT loves loves loves loves loves women.
•The first thing he notices about a woman is the way she speaks. He doesn’t like women with annoying voices and finds a woman beautiful when she can speak beautifully too. In other words, she doesn’t use a lot of slang and acts like a lady.
•GACKT’s preferences for cars can be applied to women as well. “Selfish, bold and saucy, but sexy with a great body. A girl like that.”
•Although he has said that he could love another man emotionally, he needs a woman physically.
•GACKT has said that a woman like HYDE or YOU is the type of girl he would fall for.
•He doesn’t want any kids because he does not want his child/children to have his “sixth sense” or to experience the same things he had to when he was growing up.
•GACKT’s family consists of his band members, dancers, and staff. As for his biological family, he and his older sister are close. He has a strained relationship with his father and his brother is rarely mentioned.
•GACKT is good friends with many well-known figures in Japan. Ex.: HYDE (L’Arc~en~Ciel, VAMPS), YOSHIKI (X JAPAN), SUGIZO (LUNA SEA) Hamada (Heyx3! Music Champ, Downtown), Black Mayonnaise (a comedic duo), Masahiro Inoue (Kamen Rider Decade), Ayumi Hamasaki, and more.
•He also refers to MIYAVI as his brother, and MIYAVI will usually refer to GACKT as “Gaku-ani” or “onii-chan” (which both mean older brother, in a sense).
•GACKT was also great friends with the late Ogata Ken, whom he co-starred with in the NHK taiga drama “Furin Kazan”. He was also a teacher and father-figure to him.
•He always manages to visit the grave of his deceased friend Kami (drummer of Malice Mizer) every year on his death day and his birthday.

Music:
•GACKT can play a number of instruments including the piano, trumpet, drums, guitar, and violin as well as traditional Japanese and Chinese instruments. If you ask me, GACKT can play anything that makes music.
•GACKT has a number of different guitars that he uses to perform with. The two best known guitars are Mercury (white-ish in color) and Venus (black). He designed these two for Caparison Guitars, a Japanese-based manufacturer of custom electric guitars. His inspiration for the body was that of a woman’s (think about it: his guitars are curvy like the girlies, ne? ;p) Besides using them in his tours, Venus is used in the BLACK STONE PV and Mercury is used in the Mirror PV.
•The song and PV Metamorphoze is dedicated to the Gundam anime series and he released the compilation album 0079-0088 as a gift to the series’ creator.
•GACKT has dedicated a number of his songs to dear friends whom have passed away. These songs are usually uplifting – perhaps in celebration of their life rather than in mourning:
1) My Father’s Day is dedicated in honor of his teacher and father-figure Ogata Ken.
2) BLACK STONE was dedicated in memory to JR, his driver and close friend.
3) It is rumored that the song U+K was dedicated to Kami (drummer of Malice Mizer).
•GACKT wrote 12gatsu no Love Song in light of the 9/11 attacks.
•GACKT’s 2005 DIABOLOS Final Tour performance at the Tokyo Dome was one of his more expensive concerts, but the Japanese press tends to exaggerate the actual costs all too often n.n; (thanks amaia~!)
•The orchestral piece playing while you wait for his concert to start is called Bolero by Maurice Ravel (thanks amaia~!)
•GACKT doesn’t produce songs to create albums. He produces songs that fit into the story he has created and wants to share with his fans.

DEARS:
•GACKT’s fanclub was called Kissmark before it became DEARS.
•He prefers handwritten letters from fans rather than emails because he claims an actual letter tells him a lot about that person.
•GACKT gets 2000 emails a day! He reads them all though, and tries to respond as much as he can.
•GACKT holds an annual fan club trip every year, where he performs for his DEARS and spends time with them as well. They go to places like L.A., Paris, and more! He also has an annual ski trip with the fan club… I wanna go ;o;

Fanboy-ism:
•GACKT happens to be a big otaku (die-hard anime fan) – one of the walls of his house is an entire bookcase filled with manga!
•His favorite manga is Banana Fish.
•GACKT is a big Gundam fan. He is able to impersonate characters in the Gundam world quite accurately and knows many (if not all) lines from the anime. He has also participated in many events related to the series, such as the unveiling of the giant Gundam robot in Odaiba.

Miscellaneous:
•GACKT uses skulls as piggy banks for his spare coins. Maybe they’re the skulls of all his victims… MWAHAHA!!
•He prefers candle light to electric light because his eyes are sensitive to the fluorescence. This is why you often see him with shades on during talk shows, though recently he’s decided to wear clear shades… no complaints here!
•He has referred to his umm.. “friend down there” as a “Magnum” and occasionally brags about it in interviews.
•GACKT likes to walk around his hotel room or house completely naked. He doesn’t as often as he used to though because there are always so many people at his house nowadays.
•GACKT has been afraid of cockroaches ever since a swarm of them came into his house back in Okinawa. He has said that he would like to be one in another life in order to understand it, and perhaps then he wouldn’t be so afraid of them.
•GACKT believed that he would only live until he was thirty because he was not very healthy and lived such a reckless life. He considers the years after he turned thirty his “extra years.”
•He prefers American cars to Japanese.
•GACKT’s favorite city in the world is Paris, followed by New York.
•GACKT likes watching movies that make you cry (aww~).
•When his friends/family/staff are over, they watch scary movies together and turn their hangout into a batsu game (punishment game). Whoever screams during the movie has to take a shot of liquor~
•GACKT has watched Final Destination 2 tons of times, but always screams at the same parts (I still can’t picture that…)
•GACKT likes to snowboard and takes his board with him whenever he gets a chance to hit the slopes.

  1. Definitely the best list of Fackts I’ve ever read 😀 thank you!!!!!

  2. Hey… I mean hi… haha… I love his website very much to the extend that I will actually check everyday…

    I found this online… so perhaps… just like a repay… *hope* that you will love it as much as I am…
    😛

    Old old entries of the Gackt blog…
    http://www.geocities.com/sg_msg/index.html
    Esp. 26 sep 2003 entry and 19 jun 2003…..

    Handwrittings of Gackt-sama and translation…
    http://www.geocities.com/sg_msg/index.html
    Gackt-sama is so so so cute in his words…. 😛

    Hope you like them!!! *wish*

    • Oh thank you so much!
      I’m really glad you enjoy this site so much, and I really appreciate the links!
      If it’s alright with you, I just might post those links on here for the rest of the Dears x3

  3. I agree with ObsidianMoonlight. This is the best list I’ve seen. I seriously did not know he referred to…’his parts’ as a Magnum. That’s really funny.

    • Well thank you, it’s really neat knowing that you guys really like these fackts!

      Lol yeah, that Magnum fact has been used as a pun many many times around the Gackt fandom.. it’s crazy.
      In fact, the word is so deeply connected with Gackt in my mind that whenever I see the word I can’t help but let out a little giggle xD;

  4. Fackt is a page that I seldom visit… But it’s really neatly done, with ‘points’ and not essays…
    I sure dun mind that you link the list… I’m really glad that you actually replied and you like them too… 😛
    MaGnum… I have a MaGnum 2GB thumbdrive that one can purchase with every 2 Magnum ice-cream bought!!! Everytime when I look at it, I thought of Gackt-sama…
    It used to have a blog on MaGnum-kun… But it’s closed down already.. *sobx* So, one can really see how hot is MaGnum-kun is among Gackt-sama’s fans… Hahaz…

    • Thanks, I tried to keep it interesting n.n;
      And of course I like the list, I’ve never seen them before so it’s really cool >D And I try to reply to all comments, because it’s fun and I love getting comments *feels loved* xDD;
      xDDDD That’s awesome!!.. Now I want some Magnum ice cream… I hear it’s really good actually xD

  5. Great list. :3

    Question, though: what do you mean by “the infamous Pork Belly Blocks”?

    • Lizzybear: Oh well I’m not sure if you’ve seen it or not, but there’s this one subtitled interview with Gackt talking about pork belly blocks and it’s really hilarious. A lot of the Gackt fandom (that I know of) knows about it, so that’s why I said infamous. Perhaps I should change that word though, it just seems wierdly put… xD;

  6. I have not seen it, sadly. xD Shows what I know about the man.

    Or maybe put a link? :3;;;

    • Lizzybear: xD That’s okay, I’m still finding new videos all the time~
      I just put up the links to the videos btw, hope that helps n.n

  7. LOL, thanks so much XD

    • Lizzybear: You’re welcome, and please do enjoy lol xD

  8. me likes^^

    • Selvinas: I’m glad you do x]

  9. @camuilove: I’m a big fan of MR.Magnum xD
    But sometime it”s a bit difficult for me to stay uptodate. You know, interviews and shows getting taken of the internet or not having any subs
    BUT!! By some stroke of luck I own three albums!
    Really difficult when you have no CC,PP or internetbanking.

    Byebye from Selvi!

    PS:is it alright for me to respond here?

    • Selvinas: Oooh I sees. Well at least you do own some merch from the man, that’s the good thing =D! And yeah it is always hard to find new videos and subbed stuff. Luckily though I’ve been saving a lot of his newer appearances and the subbed ones, so if they ever disappear I can always upload then again x]

      And yes you can respond here as much as you want, no worries~

  10. Waah xD Good for the rep right^^
    Naaah I really really like him. Should he come here I’ll definitely go. No matter what.

    But you know what shows I really like? Heyx3 and downtown. He was always so funny there. But those fids are gone

    • Selvinas: Same here, I hope he comes real soon @.@
      Oh I love him on those shows. Do you remember which episodes of those shows were your favorite? I may have some so I could upload them for you =o

  11. It’s cool to see some of the actual facts collected. Brings me back to funny memories of reading ‘Jihaku’– Gackt is an unending source of inspiration and humor. Thanks for compiling these here. 🙂

    • gacktpause: You’re welcome! And I agree with you 100%, he inspires me almost as much as he makes me die of laughter xD

  12. umm, those with the magnum xD and something about going shopping with domobrothers, the vampire thing,piano thing, some video’s in which he played games…umm those interviews where he tells crazy stories about himself(likethetrain)

    mmm I can vaguely remember something…a show with gackt and other celebs and they where behind a table, kinda like a quiz

    That’s it xD Hope I wasn’t to vague^^””

    • Selvinas: See, this just proves how obsessed I am. Besides the vampire one, I know all of the rest of the videos you mentioned xDDDDDD I’ll make sure to upload those here real soon.

  13. That’s great xD I really missed those, they really make you laugh!
    And I just noticed I’ve been filling your whole comments page up xD

    • Selvinas: I know, those are some of the best xD
      Oh that’s alright, I love comments anyways ❤ Btw if you ever wanted to talk outside of these comments xD; I put my messenger info on the "The Dear Behind Camui Love" page n.n

  14. thnx for all the facts!!!! ps have u watch
    this

    • Maousama: You’re welcome~ And I’ve watched that video sooo many times, it’s hilarious xD I made a post about it too, though I might have to fx the vid… lol

  15. do you know how old gackt is ?

    • Maousama: I actually wrote about his age under the FAQ page, you should check it out~
      But I am assuming he is in his 30’s now, somewhere around 34-36 n.n

  16. what happen to mei¨?????
    what interview he say that he dosent own cats??

    sorry for the bad english

    • parvati: Don’t worry your English isn’t bad n.n;

      Anyway it was in the Rockstar vol.3 Interview (the one where he is posing with cats) where he states that he doesn’t own any cats at the moment and would like to again someday because he really likes them. He doesn’t mention anything about Mei, so we’re all left wondering if she died or ran away ;o;…

  17. haha, totally just saw this: “Apparently Gackt has watched Final Destination 2 tons of times, but always screams at the same parts.”

    As sad as that sounds, I would probably do that, too. XDD

    • Lizzybear: Haha I know right? But I just can’t picture Gackt screaming, that’s the funny part xD

  18. That was a very interesting read! Thank you very much! I must ask you though; The header at this website…the pictures in the header, where are they from? And when?
    Thanks anyway~

    • Michelle: You’re welcome!
      Ah, those pictures are from Gackt’s Requiem et Reminiscence II Final Tour Live at the Saitama Super Arena this past July. The pictures used are Gackt smiling during the MC portion of the live, where he talks to the fans =]

  19. these FACKTS r awesome!!!very interesting indeed~ i really enjoy ur site!do u update the fackts?(sry,this question was stuck in my mind so i HAD to type it>.<)

    • T!iffa: Welcome to my site 😀 I’m happy to hear you like it, makes me so happy~~
      Ah yes, I update all Fackts and besically everything on this site XD; It’s a one-man (er, woman? xD; ) job and I do the best I can ^^
      Thank you!

  20. KaWaiiiiiiiiii
    every single fact made me crazy more and more
    about this man
    thank you sooo much

    • GettaChan: Haha you’re welcome x]
      Also, I welcome you to my site and I hope it’ll be useful to you for many years to come~

  21. Gackt is also known as “The Demon King,” a slight pun made off of his name. Sometimes he is also referred to as “Satan”

    His Japanese nickname is 魔王さま (maou-sama), which isn’t a pun, it just literally means Demon King (because his staff think he is evil XD). Some translators like to render it as Devil King or Satan, but it’s still referring to the same Japanese phrase.

    Gackt opened his own resturant called the Tamaly Bar back in 2004. It was a place where he and the staff could hang out but was closed down in 2006. He has re-opened the place on his birthday this year.

    It only re-opened as a section on the website.

    Gackt’s 2005 DIABOLOS Final Tour performance at the Tokyo Dome was one of the most expensive concerts to date, costing about 500 million yen (equivalent to $4.3 million dollars!!).

    I’m pretty sure the original translated source of this figure was the same tabloid that Gackt openly mocked in his concerts earlier this year for saying he had no money to hire bodyguards- “Then who are these big foreign guys in front of the stage!?”. Although DIABOLOS definitely did cost a lot to put on.

    When at a Gackt concert, the instrumental piece playing while you wait for him to blow your socks off is called Bolero. It sounds like a mix between the instrumental version of U+K featured in The Seventh Day ~unplugged~ album and a classic orchestral piece (the title of the piece has slipped my mind though, sorry n.n; )

    It IS a classical orchestral piece- Bolero by Maurice Ravel.

    • amaiakuyume: @.@ See this is why I love you so. xD
      Thank you~

  22. thanks for the Fackts camuilove. i sent him my first email today \^v^/
    i am really loving Koakuma Heaven….is something wrong with me?
    ahhhh my lord and master….

    • phililen3: You’re welcome, and good for you! Let’s hope he replies ne? x]
      I don’t think there’s anything wrong with liking Koakuma Heaven – it’s a great song! And so fun to dance too if you remember the moves *cough*likemyself*COUGH* XD; I’m a dork~

      Also, welcome to my site : D

  23. Love the site! didn’t knlw where to put this.
    I’m from Spain so this last calendar is very special to me, I love BCN indeed! ^^

    Fackts… at the beginning I was like “unnn, she cannot have missed the misspelling…” then i click and the answer was fast , it’s a good pun btw! 🙂

    • Chica: I don’t know where you would put the comment either.. maybe the Welcome page? XD;
      Oh how very cool! It’s too bad you didn’t get to run into him then, how amazing would that have been?

      Aw thanks! I was hoping it was clever and kind of funny XD;
      And welcome to my site!

  24. ohh, i hadn’t noticed you could actually write in the first place, I guess…

    thank you!!! I really enjoy it ^^ oh, i wouldn’t have run into him, since i wasn’t in BCN , anyway, the calendar will be mine! yes sir, that bookcase pic… and every of them, in fackt 😉

    I have a random question… what’s the fabulous photoshot for the main pic here, your avy and the banner at your personal blog! *melts*

    • Chica: Haha that’s okay n.n;
      Oh I see, too bad~ Haha awesome! If you try to own every single picture of him you’d have no more money or space to put them in.. trust me, that’s my case. XD

      Ah, they’re all from the B-Pass 2009.12 issue~ I don’t have it sadly, but I want to own it T^T

  25. thank you for the head-up ahha, omg, they are really goooood!
    Ohhh, please, tell me if I’m utterly crazy, but don’t you think the pic of your banner at your personal LJ is one of that kind of images that have to different “visions”? In this case, I promise that the first times I looked at the pic, I thought he had BOTH legs ON the sofa, but no, I’m wrong!(he he he) but even knowing this, I can’t help visualizing it the other way too 😛 ^^

    • Chica: Aren’t they~? *O*…
      Ah yes, I think that was Gackt’s intention too LOL

  26. “When his friends/family/staff are over, they watch scary movies together and turn their hangout into a batsu game (punishment game). Whoever screams during the movie has to take a shot of liquor~ hahahahha
    “Gackt does not want any kids because he does not want his child/children to have his “sixth sense” or to experience the same things he had to when he was growing up.” ohhhh hmh hmhm

    DRINKING BLOOD, coughs coughs— omg, this man is OUR man 🙂

    • Chica: xD Haha yes he is. He is ridiculous at times, but we love him all the same ❤

  27. Random q’s about GACKT + pic: do you know where the main pic on the left (that with the nude upper part) comes from?

    merci beacoup 😛

    • Chica: Why yes I do~
      It was on the clear file set for the RRII tour. There were 4 of them if I remember correctly, and the pictures varied. This pic was also used on a pillow that was available if you bought a certain number of collectible stickers (I think). If you would like the full picture, I happen to know where to find it~ ;]

  28. \(*-*)/
    It’s always good to find stuff like this. For new fans like me it’s very fun to read.

    Thanks, ’cause I understand all the hard work implied on making a website like this… it’s not only programing… but collecting stuff and organize it!

    WOW, girl! Just Wow!!!

    Thanks again. Hopefully one day you (hell!, we all) will have a chance to go with Gackt on a ski trip! YAY!

    (awww… I didn’t know Myvs refered to Gackt as onii-chan!!! “kawai!” XDDD)

    Take Care! (and kudos on this great website!!! I love it~~~!)

    ~ kay dalle ~

    • kay dalle: First off, welcome to my site x]!
      Thank you for the compliments, they’re like candy to me 8D (not really but they’re still nice to get xD; ) I’m glad you like the site n.n

      Take care to you too~!

  29. Love your site! This fact list is a bomb!! Thanks!

    • anan: Thank you and you’re welcome!
      Also, welcome to my site =D

  30. •Apparently Gackt has watched Final Destination 2 tons of times, but always screams at the same parts (I still can’t picture that…)

    Revisit all sections of your sites and saw the above… where do you get this info from??? Sound interesting… But I didnt see it elsewhere… *help* 😛

    • Yikiwa: It was in the TSUTAYA DISCAS Interview here x3

  31. hehe these fackts are soo col 🙂 i have read them a few times now, but i havent thanked you yet 😦
    so THANK YOU!!!! 🙂 i really love this site and keep up the great updates ❤

    • Beth: Haha you’re welcome!

  32. if i were to be asked. i prefer a much manly like picture of Gackt. Gackt’s picture in the header has a feminine touch. can he not appear to be more manly? i find him so attractive and i like him very much.

    • Melinda: Thank you for your input!
      Well for site banners I usually make them with his current look or something related to whatever project he has going on. With the current site banner, it’s supposed to reflect the fact that he’s playing Nemuri Kyoshiro and his hairstyle for the play… the photoshoot itself feels very “Japanesque” with a bit of that graceful samurai touch to it, but that’s just my opinion lol. I would have used the actual Nemuri picture but I’ve seen that thing everywhere and I kind of wanted something different, so that’s why I went this way instead. I’ve been meaning to make another one soon but I haven’t decided what photo shoot I want to use as of yet. But rest assured, when the YFC tour starts up I will be using photos related to that, showing Gackt in all his man-glory ;]

  33. I’ve been meaning to ask about this —

    •GACKT ‘s Japanese nickname is 魔王さま (maou-sama), which literally means Demon King (because his staff thinks he’s evil XD).

    Gackt-sama is evil? or is it just he’s a bit of a slave driver? He looks quite the perfectionist but I also think he’s the type to care a lot for his staff. 🙂

    • Teya: He just works them hard and occasionally pokes fun at them in a loving way. xD;
      But you’re right – although Gackt is a perfectionist and works himself and his staff hard, he also cares for them a lot and they’re all just one big happy family~

  34. Bolero? XD hahaha! well that suits gackt down to a tee!!

    didn’t the magnum nickname for chibi-gakuto come from the hosts of heyx3 or utaban? they referred to it as a shotgun or something, but gackt said it was smaller, so they said a magnum instead?

    • Celeste84: Welcome to Camui Love!
      It’s so epic, it’s wonderful xD

      It’s quite the opposite actually – The hosts of Utaban were listening to Gackt as he told them that he tends to walk around his hotel rooms naked and the hosts asked him if he’s scared that someone would walk in on him while he’s naked and point to “Jr.”, saying that it really is junior. Gackt retorted with “But I’m a Magnum.”
      And he instantly regretted saying that, because he was still being called Magnum the next time he appeared at the show and it’s still used today XD; Poor poor Gackt…

      • Gackt Camui Forever<3 😉

  35. Hahaha… He is human afterall. XD

  36. It’s amazing how much ‘Fackts’ I can remember just by reading this over once. Put that next to the amount of knowledge I gain from a twice over of my Biology notes and it becomes even more impressive XD

    I love this page. It’s been entertaining me since my DAY 1 of Camui Love. It’s also been entertaining anyone who happens to come by me soon after my constant readings XD

    I think as to not spam up your comments page I’ll retain my comment on every single fackt up here, ’till I see you again on MSN (though how much better spamming up your messenger is…) I will mention this…I’ll most certainly lose Gackt’s scary movie game. XD

    Because I’ve been reading a lot of comments which have to do with pictures of Gackt, I was wondering, do you have a gallery of Gackt on your website? I’d love to see more pictures of him, with possibly some explanations (as you are omniscient) of where/when/what/how ^_^

    • Ahaha spam me all you want on MSN, it’s much faster anyway~
      And you’re right.. you’re a bit of a spammer (in a good way) LOL. I came home and I see a flood of new comments from you.. oh what have I helped create? XDD

      You know, I originally planned to do that but there’s just SO MUCH that G’s been featured in (we’re talking about 12-ish years worth of material; 17 if you count the Malice Mizer days). I don’t know if I could ever cover it all and my harddrives are already bursting with G goodness that I’ve had to stop saving pictures for myself x___x;;;
      Umm.. since I started this site back in ’09 though, I’ve managed to gather up all the links to scans of his magazine appearances and etc, so I think if you search under “magazine(s)” you should get at least 3 years of nice material to look at =D
      Perhaps someday though, I can try to start up an ultimate gallery list of Gackt-ness~

  37. Gackt… ah—- but I have such a great admiration for him.
    I must say how much I love him ❤ he is soooo precious to me.

  38. Thank you for this information race. I think everybody knew a lot of these infos but to read it in all it was great!

    I ❤ him much! 😉

  41. Gackt really does have my full support :> 🙂

  42. hey , im a new blogger on here my names charlotteelizabeth , Your music really reaches out. I really love Mirror Unplugged on youtube ……. i thought at first it was out of charector for you as it was so up beat and lively and so far from the rock music you produce but i have to admit that the song is great to watch and happy . Im glad of that as it sounded like you had a scary childhood due to certan things i understand ……more then you would think :s any way enough rambling keep up the great songs and films as it is hard to find talented artists these days that are so versitile ……. what i mean is you can do film and music wich is rare for artists to be able to do xxxxxxxxxx

  43. You might want to include that he likes to dismantel things. His father’s car, a grand piano, a playstation… Revealed in Jihaku and a Music Fighter episode. Thank you for compiling all of this. It’s much more up to date than other sites I’ve come across and I love re-reading it. ^^

  44. Gackt is sooooo handsome Its so increadable that one guy can
    do soooo much with his life.*_^ I wish I could meet him someday.
    Oh Gackt is soooo cute down right handsome! I ❤ Gackt-san
    ultimately ^_^ soooo much I can't stand it he inspires me to push
    myself hard un Tai-Kwon -Do 😉 🙂 .
