And you are no different.

I'm glad you were able to pick up the humor in that statement...weren't you?

Japanese are all the same, lumping people together into groups like that.

(Also, the Kamen Rider track was written by someone else, but aside from that song the rest I believe were written by Gackt.)

Bleedin' C of E, I was hoping that nobody would have enough Gackt background to pick up on this so that I wouldn't have to mention that one exception. Yes, he didn't write the Kamen Rider and it shows IMO. I applaud another Dear!

I just have to add my 2 yen here.

I've been a big Gackt fan since I came to Japan and I've seen him live numerous times. I agree that he can be a bit creepy and self-absorbed at times, but I like him because he's an actual artist in a sea of "performers" and "tarento." Whether it's good or not is completely a personal preference, but at least he writes all his own music and lyrics as well as produces it. This is a lot more than can be said for the Ayu Hamasakis and Koda Kumis (not bashing them, just stating that they are not artists by definition, but rather performers).

Anywho, I agree that this naming thing is silly, especially because it's not even reflected on his official web page.
