AFAID has an impressive list of special guests and performers, and today we are announcing another heavyweight – GACKT. With an illustrious career spanning over 15 years, and forty-three consecutive singles ranked in the top ten of the Oricon music charts, it is without a doubt that he is one of Japan’s most successful male solo artiste.
Fans of the Japanese otaku sub-culture would be familiar with his works too, as his music had been featured as theme songs for various video games and anime films, including New Fist of the North Star, Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII, and Kamen Rider Decade.
GACKT has also lent his voice to various works such as the animated films “Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker (2012)” and video games including Final Fantasy VII series; Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII(2007).
Did you know that GACKT even has a Vocaloid that is created after him? Kamui Gakupo is created based on his voice samples, and becase GACKT is a huge Berserk fan, he gotten the series mangaka Kentaro Miura to design his Vocaloid character. A Nico Nico Douga Vocaloid contest was once held, and the winning song was subsequently covered by GACKT as well.
Hence, this is an amazingly rare chance for all the fans (ladies especially) to see the charming GACKT outside of Japan as he will be making a special appearance at AFAID. To find out more about the details, do visit the AFAID main page.
