Farce90’s Post Series – Part 8: Gakupo Kamui

I’ve been playing the hell out of Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction lately. Hell difficulty is very much Hell. Anyway…

Although his official product name is Gakpoid, I’ve come to know him as Gakupo, so I’ll be referring to him as such.

Gakupo was released on July 31st, 2008. It would’ve been sooner but they had difficulties finding an illustrator to do his character. They eventually got Kentarou Miura to do it for free, since he’s a fan of Nico Nico Douga.

Gakupo’s voice is provided by a singer and actor named Camui Gackt. Other than that I don’t know much else.

His character design was made to resemble a samurai, as he wears a sort of kimono and small bits of armor. He also has a sword, and the blade is apparently designed to make a musical sound when swung.

Well, that’s going to do it for this one. It’s late and I got stuff to do tomorrow, including the second to last post of the Vocaloid series. See you all then.
