GACKT will also be working on the theme song “Hakuro”. As the show will premiere on MBS next month, they are quite late promoting such a big project, but I hope that most of the fans will be able to see it online in one way or another. The air date of Sengoku Basara -Moonlight Party- PILOT is July 12, 2012. It will be shown weekly, on Thursdays at 25.25 (meaning Fridays at 1:25am).  Each episode will last for about 25 minutes.

      1. So true…just Google-ed her ;) BTW – *Uesugi

        And thanks, Shinigami-sama for the detailed list.

      2. You’re welcome. I have issues with kanji, so it takes some time. Obviously, other websites came out with the news first, but at least I tried putting more names to the list, since GACKT is just one of them.
