Story Exclusive November 2008 Calendar!
It may be a little late in coming, but we're back with Story's exclusive November 2008 calendar, now available for download!
Our November 2008 calendar is available both as a computer desktop (1280 x 1024 and 1024 x 768 resolutions) and as a PDF optimized for print on letter sized (8.5" x 11") paper.
If you haven't checked out our print calendars before (or even if you have!), now's the perfect time to take a look. All of our PDF print calendars have been redesigned so that you can easily print and assemble them into mini-calendars for your real desktop! You can find all of these in our Downloads section.
Gackt 2009 Desktop Calendar Available for Pre-Order, 2009 Wall Calendar Released
Speaking of calendars, Gackt's official 2009 desktop calendar is now available for pre-order from Lawson (Japanese) up until December 15. Like Gackt's 2008 desktop calendar, this calendar design features a decorative frame (171 x 199 x 20 mm) with interchangeable photo cards (15 pieces) and calendar cards (13 pieces) that allow you to customize your calendar to your taste.
Meanwhile, the Gackt 2009 Wall Calendar was released just yesterday, November 8! This calendar features 7 poster-sized, full-color photos (1 cover sheet, 6 calendar sheets) measuring 72.8 x 51.5 cm, and can be ordered now.
As some of you may have already noticed, the release date for nine*nine, Gackt's new CD and DVD set, had to be pushed back a couple weeks to October 29, 2008, but it is now available for order. A previously unreleased track, "Justified," will be included!
This time, Gackt's first live tour in 3 years has been fixed and the priority reservations have been accepted at Official Fanclub Dears.
The premium seats introduced for the first time was started not only to make you feel closer to Gackt but also to show our gratitude to all Dears for sending him cheers and powers.
However, in spite of our repeated advice and warning, the act of reselling tickets is still confirmed.
This fact made Gackt extremely sad and disappointed.
Dears Members selected to premium seats are required to show Photo ID card and membership card to identify at the entrance or in the Hall.
Therefore, only selected members are admitted and take seats. In case we can not confirm ID card to identify as the selected member at the entrance or in the Hall, we might decline admission and request to leave.
In addition, the resale of tickets are not only causing trouble but also prohibited by regulations.
Please never buy any tickets illegally from the internet, auctions or scalpers. Please understand in advance that Official Fanclub Dears is not responsible in case of any trouble.
If it is confirmed that tickets are traded illegally after this, we deal with it by not sending tickets even after payment, or demanding withdrawal from Dears.
Please understand in advance that no refund is available in that case.
We expect you to act sensibly.
See you in the next update!
