Promoting his very first photoshoot after his departure from MALICE MIZER, among other things. The music you hear on the background is Origa's album: Aria. Around that time it was one of Gackt's favourite albums. You can LISTEN to it on YouTube. It is remotely similair to Gackt's music around that time, so Gackt surely was somewhat influenced by Origa's music back then.

I believe I originally found this video on ryuik's journal, so thanks to her :)

Kissmark is Gackt's first official fanclub. It released two fanclub magazines. One in April and one in September 1999 (which I will scan later for you guys!) Besides that, it released quite an amount of rather typical merchandise. Such as the Squall figurine, wine bottles, discardable camera's, make-up sets... But as well the more usual merchandise like t-shirts and postcards.

However, at one point the fanclub released something without Gackt's permission, this was the Remix of Gackt, which was released on the third of November 1999. I guess Kissmark grew impatient for money and took action. Gackt really disliked the remix and ofcourse dropped Kissmark to start his new fanclub Dears.

The very first magazine that Gackt appeared in after his departure from MALICE MIZER was the February '99 issue of SHOXX. Gackt had approached SHOXX personally, as he knew quite some people from the company, and had asked them for a photoshoot and an interview.

However, the very first magazine to find Gackt was FRIday magazine. They cought him when he stept out of a Bösendorfer pianostore. On the 19th of February 1999 FRIday magazine published their photo and short interview with Gackt.

As half of Japan reads FRIday magazine (it beeing somewhat of a gossip magazine), Gackt felt like he needed to clear some things up. During Gackt's dissapearance, lot's of rumors circled throughout all of Japan. One of them beeing that Gackt had committed suicide. Gackt felt honestly disturbed by all these rumors. However, he didn't say this in the interview, all he said was that he was doing fine, that he was working on music and his comeback. Reasuring all the fans.

This is the photo FRIday magazine had published.
