At a press conference today held by GACKT for "MOON SAGA-Yoshitsune Hiden-Chapter 2" it was announced that open auditions will be held for the role of Hiyori. GACKT's response to the actor's auditioning is that the age, gender and nationality of Hiyori's new actor is not important he just wants someone who can bewitch an audience.
Also present at the press conference were actors new to MOON SAGA and GACKT's World - Hiro Yuumi and Mayo Kawasaki. The press conference was 'gate-crashed' by Shinnosu in his Benkei costume from MOON SAGA 1.
There is also a new Moon Sagawebsite which does not give too much information nor does the official Facebook page and most of the links associated with Moon Saga are not available in North America, so the mystery continues!
For those of you not familiar with this play, rockstar GACKT and manga-ka CLAMP teamed up to bring an original work to life based on the general of the Minamoto clan from the Heien era. GACKT's role is Minamoto no Yoshitsune, who possesses a special power. This historical fantasy revolve's around his anguished life.
