Students in Ohtsuki City, Yamanashi Prefecture at the high school attached to Ohtsuki Junior College were in for a treat on Friday when none other than Gackt appeared at the end of their graduation ceremony.
Gackt’s first appearance at a graduation ceremony was in 2006, triggered by emails from one of the school’s students. Since then, it has become something of a tradition for him to occasionally crash graduation ceremonies and take students by surprise.
In this particular case, the teacher in charge of the graduating class was the one to contact Gackt. “After we send out the 122 graduates on March 1, it’s been decided that I will also retire from teaching and will work in another place, and I’ve been wondering if there’s something I can do for my students,” he wrote. “I want them to set out from graduation with their hopes and dreams in hand!! Could you lend me your power to make this the best, most unforgettable graduation ceremony?”
He did just that.
Upon entering, Gackt addressed the students, “I want to say a few words to you; I brought congratulations from Tokyo. It’s unfortunate that this school will be closing, but in order for you to never forget that you came here, in order for you to feel pride for this school, and with these kinds of teachers’ feelings put in, I want to give you this song.”
He performed “No ni Saku Hana no You ni,” the song which he wrote for his first graduation appearance in 2006.
In true celebrity fashion, he kept the show short and sweet, and left students with a message: “I want to give you these words, as a senpai who walks only a bit ahead of you: A dream isn’t something you see. It’s something you make true; something that you can grant, something that you can stick to with a strong will. I have high hopes for your future. Congratulations on your graduation!”
