Moon Child is a movie starring Gackt Camui, Hyde Takarai, and Leehom Wang.


In the year 2014, Japan suffers a major economic collapse and people are forced to emigrate to nearby mainland China. Three boys are living in a fictional Chinese city called Mallepa. The three boys, named Sho (Gackt), Shinji and Toshi survive through pickpocketing. During a theft gone wrong, Sho meets Kei (Hyde), a man who looks to be young, but is in fact a vampire.

Several years later, Sho is in his twenties, leading a robbery team together with Kei and Toshi. On one of these robberies, against a criminal gang, they meet Taiwanese man named Son (Leehom). Son is attacking the gang because the gang leader raped his sister, Yi-Che.

These are the main characters of the film, which goes on describing Sho and his life for several years forward, as he rises through the ranks of the criminal underworld in Mallepa.

Theme Song

The theme song for the movie is "Orenji no Taiyou" (Japanese for "The Orange Sun"), a duet performed by the leads Gackt and Hyde.
