GACKT Official news update. Translation below:
The DVD for Karanukan the movie will be released!
It is a movie that stars musician and actor GACKT!
Ex-gymnast and new talent Kimura Suzuka, who was selected through an audition, takes on the role of the heroine Maumi!!
The scenery of the awe-inspiring Yaeyama is depicted in the fortuitous encounter between the main character and the young lady.
The one behind the megaphone is Hamano Yasuhiro, who is also the lifestyle producer of 『さかなかみ／SAKANAKAMI』.
This is a beautiful love story between a man and a women which cuts out the lights and shadows of Okinawa, where primitive power thrives.
