...okay, this is nice and thanks for the time and energy invested in putting all this together, but seriously? I'd much more appreciate just plain old English subtitles to all the dozens of other videos Gackt (or YFC for that matter) does in actual JAPANESE. Which I think is understood by much less of us, actually.

Not everyone understand english as you do, and this is the purpose of that project. Some people can barely speak english, and they are quite happy to finaly see a video translated in their language, when almost nothing is translated for them (I will take the example of the Urdu or the Thai).
Plus, this is a message for the disaster that happened in Japan, so it had a special meaning, so spreading the word in many languages as possible would be more a common sense than any other videos. Due to the lenght of the video, it's also easier for me to make subs of a short video than a long one (it taken me around 30 hours to to this work.)

It true: far more people have access to the internet now than have access to a good education, especially women who live in cultures where women do not traditionally go to school. How can they learn English?

It's a good project, mon ami, and a great result with so many languages represented! It reflects Gackt's truly international presence. Thank you!
