Dear my LOVERS

Let me introduce a little of what was posted on the blog magazine.
Give it a read.

Go here to read it all

The color of the wind has changed.
It's Fall now.
This Fall,
the name of my fanclub will change.

It's because I feel it's time
for me to evolve DEARS.
The new name is

Some people have translated it as aijin
but that lacks nuance.

If a married person refers to their lover or sweet, then it's aijin [="lover", but can be used in the sense of a married person having "a bit on the side" so to speak]
but if an unmarried person says that,
then it means koibito["lover", "boyfriend/girlfriend"] or aisuru hito["loved one"/"one who loves"].

And I'm single.
I told Shunkan Bunshou [=his least favorite tabloid] that
but I'll say it again.

I don't have a "lover" [aijin].
By the way,
if you say aijin in English
it's "mistress"

If you look at how the word "lover" is actually used in English,
Mac lovers
Vampire lovers
Music lovers
Art lovers

It means people who really love something.

Because "lovers" is plural,
it should be obvious that it means "people who love something".

People who love GACKT more than anything else?
No, people who GACKT loves more than anything else.
That's the translation.
So G&LOVERS means
"Me and the people I love"
It says "Me and"
because I want to create a fanclub together.

The feeling of not wanting to tie it up
with words like "fan" and "fanclub" has been growing every year.

The reason is, that DEARS has become more than just a fanclub,
it's my dearly beloved lovers [koibito].
As we've done many events together,
we've become strong partners.
Now I want to express my gratitude
by calling you "DEAR MY LOVERS"

That's how I feel.

Actually, there's a reason for changing the name at this time.

My fanclub up until now, "DEARS"
was run by a production company
that I was previously attached to.
There was a problem in the management of this office
I created a new production company of my own.
It's called G-PRO.

The company that supported me
is called Hoshi Create.
The owner, Hoshi, is like a father to me.
He's a man of few words,
but he watches over me with clear eyes.

He's a great man.
He watches from a high place.

I am now attached to the office of G-PRO.

my fanclub will be managed close to my own hands.
It's like taking in children raised at a relatives house
to raise with my own hands.
That's how it feels.

The tabloids will probably
write some weird and funny stuff
about this again.

I don't care about that though.

I've made you all feel lonely up to now.

From now on,
I'll make the fanclub grow with my own hands.
I'll run along with my LOVERS in my arms.

I'll go on planning new events.
I won't let you be bored.
My evolved DEARS

You've supported me until now with a strong will.
Thanks so much.

Let's head there together.
To our sanctuary.

thank you for translating this
it might be confusing at first with the change and all but then we hope that this development will make the fans grow closer to him more :D

So many feels...

An entire blog devoted to making everything clear to us. I especially love that analogy he used:
"It's like taking in children raised at a relatives house
to raise with my own hands."

I know this isn't what he meant, but with that line (I'll run along with my LOVERS in my arms), I had the silliest image of G grabbing his fans in his arms like plushies and running away with them...

As always, thank you for translating, Amaia! I feel like all that exists in my life recently is a haze of schoolwork tinged with panic and cooked under heat and pressure. These lighthearted, yet earnest words are nice to read.

you already said everything I wanted to say ;w;
Sep. 26th, 2013 06:04 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for the translation!

I'm ok with the change. I never really was on an uproar over it.

& finally he confirms that he's single. No more dating rumors for now.

Just wait for me translating this to my aunt... I'll corner her so that she won't be able to find excuses!

Thanks a lot Amaia, again :'3

Thank you! <3 :)

Thank you for the translation, Amaia! In my language there is no difference between married and unmarried persons, also when I translate from english in my language, that`s somehow confusing me. I don`t have a membershipcard but I love him seriously from the depht of my heart!

I appreciate where he's coming from, but there's a difference in nuance between using "lovers" in compounds such as "Mac lovers" versus having the word stand alone which is what ended up happening by putting the "and" between himself and his "lovers." If it had been GACKT LOVERS then it would be equivalent to Mac lovers, music lovers, etc.

Oh well...maybe I just think too grammatically now. >o

It would be nice if this change also meant going global. You know, using English, making things easier for fans outside Japan, things like that... Because call it whatever he wants, it still feels kind of isolationist like this, no matter his explanations - he does have more than a few fans all over the world and he does speak English pretty well, from what I've noticed.

Oh well. Thanks for yet another translation! ♥
