Gackt dakimakura

Remember this? ^^;;

I wrote about it when pre-order opened. You can check out the post for more information :D You’ve probably already seen it when Japanese fans posted the photos when they received it early October. I ordered it in the end partly for the 180cm inner stuffing orz;;;

Title: Akatsukizukuyo -DAY BREAKERS- Premium Edition 暁月夜 -DAY BREAKERS-
Price: 15,000 Yen (w/o tax)
Date of release (date of delivery): Wednesday, 1st October 2014

And so it finally arrived in a humongous box.

It would have been great if they vacuum packed it but they didn’t.

The big fat hugging pillow folded in half and squashed inside the box.

~~$$$~~

Even comes with an instruction sheet hahaha… :D

Gackt’s face actually looked… ok ^^;; I know I griped about it when I first saw the photo when it was revealed. I guess they might have intentionally chosen a “haughty” expression rather than a seductive one? Though I would still prefer another expression orz;;

Plastic sheet removed. Same length as my queen bed.

A removable strap printed with G&L (G&LOVERS fan club) initials.

And so the stripping begins… (erm I think I need to iron out the wrinkles on his chest lol)

GACKT STRIPPED! Well, almost. So he isn’t fully nude. But it’s suggestive enough (no-pantsu) Front & back.

There isn’t a zip in the cover.

And you can remove the cover easily from the pillow stuffing.

Close-up of the stitching. The fabric for the main cover is quite “coarse” compared to the soft buttery feel of the “zipped up jacket”. However, it definitely feels durable and like it’ll last a really long time (or maybe even lots of rough handling by fans… well, let’s try not to think too much about that premise… ^^;;;)

The “jacket”‘s zip detail. Fabric is very smooth and soft.

Back of the “jacket” is printed with a huge GACKT text. The single placed on the left for comparison.

Folded up nicely.

Contents of the Akatsukizukyo – DAY BREAKERS single. Includes the CD, DVD and lyrics card. Beautiful song it is! Check out the PV here at youtube.

Inner pillow I can now use with some of the 180 x 60mm Omerta dakimakura covers I have :D

  1. I hope they bring this back…had I known about it when it came out, I would’ve bought it no matter the shipping >///////< Pleaaassseee bring it back…T^T

  2. Wow I love the music video!!*0*
    (Gackt why you always look as if you came out from a video game?;; )
    His face looks funny on pillow, It’s as if he’s saying “come get some!” lol
    Zipper idea is great! What will they think of next?!! XD

    1. @Maria: Ah~ those are the right words to describe that face of his lol~ This may not be the first time he released an official dakimakura of himself but it definitely took it to the next level. Previous one he did was just an image of him printed on the cover. No, I don’t have that hahaha… saw the pic on the web :D Let’s see what else he can come up with next time.

  3. There was something about buying a body pillow of a real live person twice my age that prevented me from making the purchase. I think I’ll stick to my akira/shiki cushion. The idea of the zip up jacket is pretty innovative though.

    1. @yuri: Totally understand how you feel XD I bought it mainly for the pillow cos so far I haven’t been able to find the size on sale anywhere orz;; and I don’t know how to make my own.
