    Few weeks ago, Hizaki and Zin (Jupiter) both shared an instagram account named moi_dix_mois_ but they did for a limited time (and they clearly mentioned they would suppress the link quite quickly).

    So, is this a real official account ? Honestly, it could be regarding the content... But, Mana never posted in English on Twitter (and on this Insta... some publications are in English).
    But in the same time, when he published some on Twitter... there are more related pics on Insta (like for his travel in Cannes)...

    Anybody could confirme that this insta account is an official one ?

    I haven't heard anything about it, your guess is probably as good as anyone else's here.

    Mana tends to put his name at the end of things he writes on Twitter but I don't see it on Instagram. (Except when it's "official" stuff like basic concert info). Some of the photos are generic (like the Cannes photos), so it is hard to say. It's not unheard of having people pretend to be someone famous on the internet.

    Since it is not a verified account it is difficult to know. Unless Mana actually states it either in his blog or on Twitter. Or if photos are posted there first and then he posts them on Twitter or in his blog. Until then it may be wise not to assume it is official. Also it does not say official unlike his twitter that does.

    eta: most recent Snoopy photo was first posted on Twitter, then on Instagram.

    eta more: I checked a number of the photos posted on both accounts and they all were added to Instagram after posting on Twitter. Some several hours or days later. So either he's slow using Instagram or it's someone else posting as Mana on Instagram.

    Also celebrities have been mislead by people pretending to be someone famous, sometimes costing a bit of money. Famous one involved a Hobbit Park in Oregon.

    Not saying it's not Mana but nothing so far verifies that it is his account.

    Did a little checking and not likely that it is Mana's Instagram account but someone else. Doubt they are connected to Moi dix Mois. Photos are taken from other sources. One of the Cannes photos came from Cannes Twitter

    The Hiroshima photo came from this guy's blog. Scroll down to the photo of the viewpoint

    If you have access to the Instagram account you will see the same umbrellas in the same place that are in the photo on the Instagram account.

    When I discovered this photo I decided to post these findings here.
