DEAR MY G-LOVERS

We’re more than halfway through July.
The week after my birthday passed in the blink of an eye.
My friends and colleagues
celebrated my birthday with me for two weeks,
but since I was getting up every morning at 6am after less than 2 hours sleep,
it was a somewhat tough two weeks for me.
Now I’m doing filming for the new YouTube series
but because I’m doing it in the breaks from training for the play
every time I move my body I can hear creaking noises.
In the background you can see my beloved car,
the Lamborghini Aventador 50th…
but I have no time to drive it.
Maybe I’ll take it for a spin tonight.
Who would have thought I’d ever spend this much time on video games…
Game Center is a new YouTube series
where I play various video games,
and for some reason it seems that trivial things like this
are pretty popular
and are sending whirlwinds through various industries.
Times really have changed.
You can make a show out of just playing video games.
And, unbelievably, out of ME playing video games…
I’ve never been into video games,
so it’s a strange twist of fate…
or that’s what I think when I’m playing them.
For me, games aren’t something you play,
they’ve always been something to make or create.
Now I’m playing games like a kid.
You never know what will happen in life.
"Life is a game"
I’ve often thought that since a long time ago.
"Life is a gamble"
I sometimes hear this,
but I don’t think so.
In order to beat a game,
you need intelligence and hard work,
and you have to spend time on that,
while gambling largely operates on luck.
If it’s a contest of luck,
I won’t win.
I have bad luck.
To be honest, my luck is bad and my bad luck is ridiculously strong.
I guess there are a lot of people who don’t understand the difference.
People with good luck are blessed to be lucky.
The probability of lucky things happening around them is high.
People with bad luck
have a good chance of being able to dodge unlucky things when they happen.
I am incredibly thankful that my bad luck is strong.
Because I’m still alive.
I’ve had a lot of near death experiences,
but I’m still alive.
I think that many military generals
might have also sought the strength to cut through bad luck
more tham luck itself.
Because even if nothing lucky happens,
you can carve your own path.
Because a life where lucky things happen won’t come to you
shut away in your house.
if you take action, then you’ll definitely become embroiled
in troubles, be they many or few.
At those times,
it’s not just about your ability to avoid it anytime,
those who have a lot of bad luck
are able to see the light
when it feels like you’re on the edge of failure.
And because of that, they’ll be able to escape by the skin of their teeth.
There are probably a lot of people in the world who think their luck is bad.
Don’t worry about that.
What’s important is that you open your own road up without leaving it to luck.
So then, it’s not too late to start now.
Don’t shut yourself away, and take a step outside.
Go out now, meet lots of people,
and become motivated to grow.
My name is GACKT.
My motto is “Mr. UNBREAKER”
You can do it, can’t you?
Then I’ll go first and show you.
That you can do anything.
