Haven't seen this before. That's a really cool performance. Wouldn't mind if they do this at an X Japan concert.

You know that book is sitting on my desk within reach of me. Now I have an excuse to get to work on it. You are looking for a full translation of it right?

I've been putting this off for too long so I'll put the next 4 parts here now. I was planning to do a page a week. Any feedback or criticism is welcome as well.

Part 2

User: Yasuhiro Sugihara. Folder: Where is Yo-Kun.

I have to pause to take a break. I may as well write down the details of what's happened so far but I"m having trouble finding the words to describe how bizarre this situation is. So far the staff here and in his studio either doesn't believe Hayashi-San is locked inside his own house, responds with silence or in a very few cases we've been told that it's up to us. I can't get a locksmith because the door has no visible locking mechanism even though it's clearly locked. I tried to call emergency services but Morie-San informed me that this did happen long ago, yet for only a day instead of a week when the door finally opened on it's own he looked....well....thin. As in thinner than his normal self. When the ambulance arrived the workers threatened to call the police on us when they saw the room before running, as in literally running away. It seems the rest had to pick him up off the floor and take him to the hospital themselves. He was wolfing down food once he was stabilized. Yoshiki. Caviar and champagne Yoshiki. Wolfing down hospital food. I can't imagine it. One thing that did catch my attention was that HEATH did say he saw something unusual.He said he was sure there was someone else present. This may be due to Japanese heritage and he only saw something for a millisecond but the best he could describe it as is a well kempt onryo. Ishizuka-San is also here. Then there's the knob on the door. Obviously it's locked and there is a very small letter T etched on it. The same T that's been used as Toshis solo career logo for the past 15 years.

Part 3

User: Yasuhiro Sugihara. Folder: What does Toshi know?

I showed Morie-San the etching and we both talked to Deyama-San. Pata was there and more quiet than ever. This is something that only the two original members of X are privy to and Toshi says it was from a long ago pact. What that pact was is something he won't turn loose of. The main thing is that if Yoshiki stays there any longer he may die if he's not dead already. With my own activism and the protests I went to and organized to help save the worlds lives I sure won't let my bandmate and band leader die. When this happened before the door opened on it's own and he was taken care of immediately. Deyama-San seems to be waiting for the door to open but what if it never does? Right now, as I'm writing this Morie-San is trying to reason with him while he's trying to regain some form of composure. At first he said the door can't be unlocked from the outside until I pointed out the mark I found. He then froze in place and all he said was that we couldn't let it out. He was white as a bedsheet and trembling as much as, well, the time we first met and he had other things to be afraid of. I need to stop here. Toshi just reached out and opened the door saying god help us.

Part 4

User: Yasuhiro Sugihara. Folder: We found Yo-Kun.

I have no clue what to make of this now. Yes, Hayashi-San is in the hospital and arrived there thin and desiccated just as described by Morie-San. Deyama-San has some connection to this but he's way too terrified to convey what he knows to us. I would say things almost seem supernatural. As a committed sceptic, that would have been something I would have never said until what I witnessed. Now I've been praying to any Good or religious figure I know of and, in keeping with the Japanese tradition of everything having its own God, I even prayed to my guitar. I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me get back to the start. Once the door was opened we all went in except for Toshi. He walked away to have a seat and try to stop shaking. He's either keeping watch, keeping distance or both. Morie-San and I checked inside, Ishizuka-San was there, and this room was just a bedroom. Granted an ornate bedroom just like the other ones in his mansion with a high end TV, luxury furnishings, white walls and a wet bar stocked with Yoshiki wines, but no Yoshiki. The only odd thing at the time were these odd, faint patterns on the walls that kind of looked like faded black veins and a fountain by one wall. Except it appeared to have the decorative fountain part removed and was just a concrete basin with water running up and over the sides of it. Those were the only 2 differences until I looked closer. As if on queue and waiting for someone to claim him I saw blood form in the water of the fountain and then Hayashi-San floated to the surface in what looked like a suspended animation as well as also looking drained. As we were pulling him out and leaving that room I made sure the door was closed behind me and then I noticed that Deyama-San was gone. We saw no one enter or leave that room but Toshi saw someone or something that scarred him so bad he didn't even shut the front door on the way out.

Part 5

User: Yasuhiro Sugihara. Folder: The aftermath.

It's been a month now. Hayashi-San thanked everyone for helping him in the same way he always exchanges pleasantries as if we were doing a contract signing. He now considers everything done and taken care of. I think both him and Toshi are still in grave danger. Whatever is after them wouldn't give up after two attempts. Me and Morie-San are at Yoshikis place to confront him about the risk he's putting on him and Toshi. Toshi's a complete mess and wants to be anywhere else but here. Pata is here too. Here is what we know so far. Whatever it is that got Toshis head on a swivel is obviously not normal and I should quite possibly entertain the notion that it's not human either. It's definitely not a well kempt onryo since onryo are hardly ever "well kempt" at least according to tradition. I'd say vampire since Yo-Kun was drained but there were no puncture wounds concurrent with a bite. Who knows? This maybe some crazed and looney fan. There's also the door though. HEATH, Pata and I all tried to open that door and it was locked but Toshi was just able to grab it and open it as though it was his own place. He was also the one who least wanted to open the door. He still needs to be here. Just pretending this will all go away is only making things worse. Just now Toshi just ran in here screaming and is cowering behind Hayashi-Kun saying "don't let it get me." It looks like we're not alone.

I've found a live recording of Toshi singing Yoshikis (X Japans) ALIVE. The record is from 2017.

Hi there,

welcome to XFF!

Nice to have some fresh blue blood!  8)

Unfortunately I can't help you with the exact book, but we have some translations of books here in the forum. The one of Yoshiki you already found, but we also have the biography of TAIJI (here https://www.x-freaks.com/forum/index.php?topic=7763.0) and Toshi (here https://www.x-freaks.com/forum/index.php?topic=7576.0)

Hope this helps you anyway :)

Yoshiki / Re: Unnamed song 9/11 + Interview
« Last post by Kasumi on September 24, 2021, 07:45:01 PM »
This track was released in 2005 on Yoshiki's classical album Eternal Melody II, but does date back to at least 2002 where it was performed live in Tokyo as part of his Symphonic Concert, (which was released on DVD in 2005).

If not familiar from the above, Toshl did perform it with Yoshiki in 2010 when he did his "Last Concert".
Ah thank you for clearing that up. It just sounded somewhat familiar, but I would have never guessed where it's from.
