Because it's About To Cross the 1 Month Mark... (Blog Magazine Issue 22 Excerpt)



I'll introduce a bit of what I posted on the blog magazine.
Give it a read.
To read it all go here.

I'm here.

From Okinawa, which I visited for an interview,
I immediately returned to Tokyo for album recording, photography,
meetings for each section of the tour, preparation for filming, and training...

Each day passes in the blink of an eye.

I've heard reports of stupid tabloid articles,
and headed to training thinking, "how moronic".

I'm abstaining from alcohol, fish, meat, and drinking only water.
Well, since the live tour is approaching, the restrictions are rapidly increasing.
I get irritated sometimes.
At those times, I don't want to write about stupid, careless articles
first thing in the morning, right?
I'll write about that at the end of this.

I guess I'll take a look back at the last few days.
My stay in Okinawa this time was really rushed.
Most of it was filming, and as for the rest,
I was only able to take time for grave cleaning [Note: Okinawan tradition of decendants maintaining ancestors tombs],
and didn't even get to see my friends.

Well, it can't be helped.
These things happen.

[Photo: Right after arriving at the location]

I came for work,
and from the hotel window, I could see the venue for the Okinawa International Film Festival.
When I saw it for the first time, I was kind of moved that they were doing it in a place like this.

It was the Laguna Garden Hotel I used to stay in often.
It was kind of nostalgic.

I think my show in Okinawa might have been here too...

That was in 2009,
so this will be my first solo tour in 4 years.
It's gone fast.

4 years has passed in the blink of an eye.
I'm Urashima Gakuto... [Note: Urashima Taro is a Japanese folktale of a man who visits a magical kingdom for 3 days and returns home to find 300 years have passed]

I have almost no memory of taking a day off,
but somehow so much time has passed like the blink of an eye.
Time is cruel at times.

Once again, the tickets for my solo tour have sold out quickly.
I can feel how you all must have been waiting.
The demands for extra seats and extra shows is endless.

I think I'll add them where I can organize them,
so wait a little bit.

Having finished the live broadcast on the first day,
after that, I talked to the producers from the station until 3am...

Recently I've been holed up in the studio with song writing and blog magazines and tour meetings...
It's an endless parade of work, work, work.
Without even a moment's rest, the days pass in a blink of an eye.

With time passsing so fast,
is it just me that desperately wishes there could be 48 hours in a day?

Welllll, I guess I'll do my best today too...

The rest...

Re: Thank you ^^
Some tabloids are still writing stories about the "tax investigation". Well, I searched online and I didn't find any new stories, so I guess that's what he's talking about.

Thank you for the translation

Thank you for translating Amaia since you are so busy <333
What did the tabloids said this time ?
Apr. 6th, 2013 06:51 pm (UTC)
They're pretty much pushing the same old story, supposedly the tax investigation is "ongoing", blah blah blah did we mention he has a lovechild?

Well, at least that's all I could find posted online.

That again!?pffff , at this point it's just terrible fanfiction.
Apr. 6th, 2013 01:37 pm (UTC)
Thank you.

Album recording!! I wonder how many years we still have to wait...but it has always been worth waiting for.

Thank you so much!!! I'm worried about Mr. Gackt, I hope he'll be OK!... just drinking water? O.o Who is his doctor?
Apr. 6th, 2013 06:36 pm (UTC)
I meant that water is the only drink he consumes (i.e. no alcohol, coffee, tea, etc) not that he's doing nothing but drinking water. I'll rephrase that slightly.
Apr. 7th, 2013 10:02 pm (UTC)
Ohhh I see, thank you :) (my mistake :P )
Apr. 6th, 2013 07:56 pm (UTC)
thanks so much for translating especially with your busy schedule

oh jeez cant they leave the poor man alone (tabloids i mean) - with his tour coming up couldnt they find ANYTHING else?? and doesnt iconiq have a drama or something coming up? couldnt they at least PRETEND interest - at the very least they could make up a scandal so her drama will get ratings (well some good out of bad)

okinawa is one of the places i want to see (ever since the karate kid) - it would be so great to go there!

thanks again!

Thank you for your translation, Amaia! As always I`am very glad
for your translation.
Can you tell me what the headline means ? And being abstaining is
it because of the upcoming tour ?
Apr. 6th, 2013 11:30 pm (UTC)
thank you!

It breaks my heart to read about him being so busy and working without having even a single day off. I really hope he won't overdo it (100 cookies for the person who notices the mistake here *sarcasm*)

Thanks for translation, of course :3
