Happy 31st birthday to our beloved Leader-san! :D
First of all, I'd like to share this with you. It's a translation of his bday blogpost (which is tenchnically fanclub only, but a kind soul translated it, and since it's a very special occasion, no one seems to want to lynch her for it, so I'm going to take the risk of sharing it here too, despite our usual policy of not allowing FC only stuff):
Filled with love
Today is that one day of the year when I’m most grateful to the people around me.
I always say this only after everyone has said their congratulations, so this year I want to gather all my gratitude and say thank you to you all before you get to say “congratulations” to me.
To the other members, who let me think of myself as your current drummer.
Let’s work hard together from now on too!
To the staff, who are kind enough to support the GazettE.
Thank you so much for always listening to our selfish opinions and understanding them.
Let us be a bit selfish from now on too! (laugh)
To the fans, who love the GazettE from the bottom of their hearts.
To be honest, I have also reached a quite good age. (laugh)
But still I feel like I’m living the best days of youth right now and it is all thanks to no one else but you. I want this to last forever. Thank you.
To the parent who gave birth to me and raised me.
I was blessed to be your son.
From now on, I hope that I will be able to give you at least something back through the GazettE.

*sniffles* There are so many reasons to love this man! He's just so cute and awesome and sexy and admirable and talented and...
Anyway, what's a birthday post without a picspam? :D
So, under the cut, many pics of our favourite drummer! Please share your own pics as well! And hey, remember the listening party later today! :D( click for pics )
