    If anyone wants to get in on Gacktcoins, now's your chance ::gaku::
    http://airdrop.spindle.zone/
    ... Unless you live in the USA, China, or Japan, anyway.

    Also, there's an English version of his profile now:
    https://spindle.zone/en/team/gakuto-oshiro.html
    "He has managed to establish intimate relationships with governments and royal families in many countries" - yeah right XD

    EDIT: they also put up an English translation of exactly what they claim to be doing
    https://spindle.zone/spindlewp_en.pdf

    EDIT2: maybe I'm the only one who finds this amusing but: they put up a Github, and there's nothing in it but links to their press releases :lol:

    These block chain developers are like the modern day cyberpunk equivalent of monks copying details into illuminated manuscript.

    Because it's Dumping On Gackt Day - read about how Gacktcoin fled the country in disgrace!

    Get a load of this:
    ::gaku::::gaku::::gaku::::gaku::::gaku::::gaku::::gaku::

    EDIT: actually, when did Gackt move to the Philippines? Is he literally on the run from the law right now? :lol:

    I saw some interviews on YT about him staying in the Philippines last year. On LINE all his recent posts are about some online poker shyt that he is doing. Interesting...

    He actually moved to Malaysia about five years ago. Recent Instagram videos including the one where he kicked a guy into his pool appear to be there. Probably has safe houses in other countries, just in case :o

    I honestly haven't paid attention to his antics for some time, but this stuff today got me looking. Seems he's also been spending time in Europe pushing his bit coins.

    Thanks for the info!

    He kicked a guy into his pool??? Suppose that's a step up from torturing folks in "erotic" stretching and exercise positions > . <

    Some sound effects in there but yeah. I remember when Gackt started posting this work out stuff on Instagram, part of it was having a 7 lb, 15 kg medicine ball dropped on his stomach. Then he would drop the ball on others, even if they really didn't want it. And yeah, there were cries of pain. This is definitely not something legit exercise people recommend. That and those extreme stretches that he forces people to do, I couldn't help but think it was abuse. But the guys would do it because they wanted to be Gackt's buddies. I have no idea if anyone got hurt but sometimes it looked like it. I'm sure if they did they would get treatment and paid to not say anything. Or no longer be Gackt's work out buddy or friend.

    That and things that he had said in the past and current, along with the allegation of raping a woman who went home with him (which is why prosecution was dropped, because she went to his house) and finding out he was not truthful about what happened with Malice Mizer, nope. I use to like his music but his personality and the things he keeps doing, ended that.

    I always believed he left Malice Mizer because he wanted to go solo. But to lie about it and make it look like everyone was against him, him playing the victim...and then to go even further with it now, nope.

    As for his moving to Malaysia because he claimed it's too cold in Japan in the winter so his back hurt, he could have done what a lot of people do and live there during winter and summer in Japan.

    And yes, the bit coin business has closed now in Japan.

    What?! Come on, I saw it in "Bloodsport", it must be legit ::meev::
    Ready to protect?
    Same with the extreme stretches:
    AAAAARGH

    I should watch that movie again XD

    EDIT: I can't find the medicine ball thing though. Just some talk show where he makes the members of Arashi do it, but that's obviously somewhat of a joke.

    It's older stuff, back when he started posting this stuff on Instagram and linking through to Twitter. Here's a sample but only photos on his blog, including Gackt saying he wants to bully the guy and sticks his foot in his face.

    Another with those stretches.
    http://www.gacktitalia.com/2018/01/05/photos-genji-umeno-blog-jan-04-2018/

    Try Google with Gackt Instagram medicine ball if you really have to see the ball throwing in action. There are a number of videos. And I was wrong, it's a 9 kg ball he's having thrown at people.

    And he might have taken his exercise routine from Jean-Claude Van Damme but not give credit? Given the rumors about his early music, it shouldn't surprise me if he did do that.

    TBH I'm kinda surprised nobody is talking about the rape allegations on tumblr, even the few JRock/VK blogs I follow... I but then again JRock seems to be largely untapped by the sjw crowd (but because it's tumblr, that might actually be a good thing). Most people are just focused on western celebrities who may or may not have done something questionable 30-40 years ago. *shrug*

    What's the story with that? I've heard the one where he made some unwanted advances on a lady in his private limo or whatever it was, but that was some years back.

    In 2013 a woman made a claim that he held her against her will in his house for six hours and sexually assaulted her. Either they had dinner together and he forced her into his car, or she was a hostess in a club that he forced into his car. It's difficult to find unbiased information online then and now. Police investigated but did not bring charges.

    No one in Japan is talking about his latest interview either, at least on Twitter. That Barks interview with Közi and Mana is being shared, so that's good to see.

    As long as we're piling on, here's Gackt piling on the flattery for Rodrigo Duterte:

    I think it's less of piling on and more of the mistakes he has made over the years catching up with him. So far he hasn't repeated the claims he made in that interview. Maybe he thought it was a local thing to someone who didn't know anything and he didn't realize people outside the country would read it? Wouldn't be the first time he's said stuff to try and impress a woman.
