7/3/2016 @ Saitama Super Arena

July 3rd, 2016 was a sweltering hot day in Japan. That’s why when 15:00 came around to the thousands fans outside of Saitama Super Arena, they were more than eager to start entering the air-conditioned venue to see the grand finale of GACKT’s WORLD TOUR 2016 LAST VISUALIVE 最期ノ月 -LAST MOON- supported by Nestlé.

All that could be seen on stage was a great red moon projected on the center of an enormous screen. When the lights went out at 16:15, a frame surrounding the moon opened to reveal an even bigger screen. It showed the introduction to the continuation of GACKT’s long-running MOON SAGA – segueing from GACKT’s theatric narration to a battlefield scene.

As the scene came to an end, the opening chords of ARROW prompted the entire arena to rise to their feet for Part One, almost all of them wielding dual light sticks set to purple. The giant screen parted to reveal GACKT and his members in full LAST MOON costume. The stage set looked something akin to a post-apocalyptic movie set. Fans waved their light sticks to the beat, creating a purple galaxy-like image around the stage.

GACKT’s Anime Theme and…World Tour!?

GACKT rounded off the final show of his LAST VISUALIVE tour last night, and he had some big announcements to make at the end.

The first announcement is that he will hold a world tour in 2017! No further details–including possible places or dates–have been announced yet. Stay tuned!!

The second announcement is that one of the tracks on his latest album “LAST MOON” has been chosen as the opening theme for an anime. 「キミだけのボクでいるから」 (Kimi dake no Boku de iru kara) will be the opening theme for “TRICKSTER,” a new series set to air starting in October. A preview of the anime (featuring GACKT’s tune) was released just last night.

That’s not where GACKT’s role in the anime ends, though. He’ll also be voicing the character of 怪人二十面相役 (Kaijin Nijuu-men Aiyaku). Basically, he’s a mystery man.

Gackt performs theme song, plays the Fiend With Twenty Faces
The official website of the Trickster: Edogawa Rampo 'Shōnen Tantei-dan' Yori (Trickster - From Rampo Edogawa's "The Boy Detectives Club") television anime began streaming a second promotional video on Sunday. The video reveals that Gackt will perform the theme song "Kimi Dake no Boku de Iru Kara" and voice the main antagonist, the Fiend With Twenty Faces (pictured below).
Gackt as the Fiend With Twenty Faces, a criminal and master of disguise whose age, gender, and nationality are unknown. Few have seen the face beneath the mask. The Fiend With Twenty Faces is behind events that provoke Akechi, but does not personally kill people.
The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX, Yomiuri TV, BS11, and other channels in October. The anime's official website notes that, aside from the anime and manga, the project will also include a stage play and a live-action film.
The site describes the story:
It is the 2030s. The Boy Detectives Club gathers under Kogorō Akechi, the mysterious detective. The group solves cases great and small using their unique skills. One day, a member of the club, Kensuke Hanazaki, meets the boy Yoshio Kobayashi. Kobayashi's body cannot die due to the effects of the "Unidentifiable Mist," but he yearns for death, and shirks from contact with other people. Taking an interest in him, Hanazaki invites him to join the Boy Detectives Club. Their meeting is connected to the fate tying together Kogorō Akechi, and the era's greatest villain, the Fiend With Twenty Faces.
Shōnen Tantei-dan (The Boy Detectives Club) describes both the 1937 novel by renowned Japanese mystery novelist Edogawa Rampo, and the title of a series of Edogawa novels, of which the aforementioned titular novel is the second in the series (the first was The Fiend With Twenty Faces). The character of Yoshio Kobayashi appears in many of the novels as the leader of the club, and apprentice of Japan's greatest detective, Kogorō Akechi. Edogawa's novels have inspired numerous live-action and animated adaptations, and elements and references to his stories appear in even more works. 2015's Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace television anime adapts many of Edogawa's stories.
