Here's Gackt on Terry Ito's Tsuki ni Hoero (Terry Ito's Howl at the Moon), as requested by an Anonymous visitor.
He talks about lots of things that you usually don't hear about on other TV shows, so it should be interesting for people that want to know more about his opinions on relationships, marriage and how to be a strong man etc.
HERBIVOROUS, CARNIVOROUS AND DINOSAUR!
Herbivorous men refers to the recent trend of males in Japan that have become metrosexual and feminine.
They (stereotypically) aren't as interested in relationships and sex with females, and like to engage in grooming and have interest in fashion like females. Carnivorous are the opposite, and will openly go after women. The Dinosaur type is something Gackt just made up, and I suppose they devour females.....;p
WALKING 3 STEPS BEHIND
He was talking about how there's a phrase that goes something like "Females walk 3 steps behind men". It kind of made it seem like that's how things work in Japan, but they mostly walk side by side over there too. Only some old people are like that...
He said that guys should walk infront to protect the females....but from what?? Even if there were lots of dangerous flying objects or something while walking around in the streets, wouldn't it be easier to protect them if they were right next to you rather than 3 steps behind your back...?
You can't even see her then....(-_-)....
TRIPITAKA AND SUN WUKONG
This is in reference to the characters from the old Chinese story of 'The Journey To The West'. You might have seen a dubbed Japanese TV series called 'Monkey Magic' that is based on this story. It's the tale of a Buddhist priest called Tripitaka and three beast people that journey to India to get some holu scriptures. One of the followers is Sun Wukong, the monkey king, who is a powerful but also a sneaky trickster. After getting in trouble in heaven he got trapped under a huge boulder by Buddha, but was rescued by Tripitaka on the condition that he'd protect him on the journey to India. So that Sun Wukong doesn't just leave him and run off, a metal headband/tiara thing that shrinks and tightens when Tripitaka says a prayer is put onto the monkey's head. So this relationship is what Gackt is referring to. Tripitaka needs Sun Wukong to protect him, and Sun Wukong has no choice but to do so until the reaching the end of the journey where is head band thing will be taken off. Even so, they become great friends along the way and Sun Wukong will pretty much risk his life for the priest regardless of the headband torture mechanism.
I highly recommend you watch the dubbed TV series (Monkey Magic) if you haven't already. It's a very funny comedy and made in the 70's with lot's of cheap looking costumes, although that may have been their aim. The English dubbing makes it even more hilarious
