Hey again, here's another Gackt video. I thought that it would be about time the Gackt fans would start getting a bit restless (and I guessed correctly it seems), so I subbed a short 10min clip of him from a show called 'Urerudou' in 1999. It's an old video, which you will be able to tell from some of their conversations......and the quality of the video. He came to promote his solo debut single, "Mizerable", and it's still when he mumbled rather than talked and stared off into space a lot. Quite different from nowadays lol. It should please some people in that sense.
Ohh...and that doll he's holding is Squoll from Final Fantasy.

Urerudou (1999.06.08) Gackt by juxtapose31
Is the name of the host here. He was an early protoge of the legendary duo, Downtown, featuring in their show, "Gottsu Ee Kanji". He is often mistaken for being a duo with another guy called Imada Koji that featured in that show but he is actually a solo comedian. He seems kind of nice in this video but he's well known for having a bad personality and being hated by his peers lol. Not really sure on any specific things though.
TAKAMIZAWA FROM THE ALFEE
The Alfee are a very famous and super long existing, three man rock band. The guitarist, Takamizawa Toshihiko could possibly be thought of as one of the first viusal kei artists. He started that style of look well before the term and genre of "Visual kei" was even conceived but his appearance does have it's similarities. The man is in his late 50's now and has said that he thinks it's too late for him to suddenly change to a normal appearance, so has kept up this image ( said on Shabekuri 007 appearance). He now features as a regular cast for the show Shin Domoto Kyoudai and is identifiable for this long dyed blonde/orange hair and flashy suits.
Body con was a style of fashion that became popular in Japan between 1991~1994 among the club going females. It stands for "Body Conscious" and were generally very tight fitting one pieces with very short skirts.
It was during the bubble era and people were pretty crazy back then so there were bars where body con girls danced on tables and guys stared up at them from below.....
The dress doesn't seem that different to what people where in clubs these days though. Well, at least in the country that I live in...
