uprise shop plays a very important role in supporting yasu career. Right now, everything in regards to yasu and his fans is centralized at uprise shop.


Why do fans want to register at uprise shop? )

Why do international FC members want to be a VIP member at uprise shop? )

What do you need to register at uprise shop (for both FC and non-FC members)? )

What do you need to register as VIP member (for international FC members only)? )

How to register at uprise shop? )

How to register as VIP member (for international FC members only)? )



After everything is complete, now you can shop for the tour goods and ABC's releases all you want. For non-FC members who do not want to register, you can always use proxy/deputy/shopping services for cheaper option. As for the international FC members, now you can finally shop the releases with FC-only benefits and you can finally enter the FC lottery yourselves.

Happy shopping and happy balloting!
If you encounter any problem, feel free to drop a comment/message.

No one can beat ABC when it comes to last minute decision and spoiling fans.
Because of high demand and request from the fans, as not everyone is an FC member, to make it easier for the fans, serial numbers for L Tour lottery application will be included in L album.

I will update the further details once the album is released. In the mean time, you may read about this lottery here. ABC didn't have this type lottery for quite a long time already and it's truly a bless that this lottery finally makes a comeback.

Christmas, New Year and yasu's birthday are coming our way and I see many misundertandings when it comes to the posting procedure. So, I decided to make a brief clarification in regards to this. You may drop a comment if you still have any doubt.

First thing first, the address. It's still the same as my old entry long time ago.

Janne Da Arc Official Fan Club -Save Us!-
c/o Dogenzaka Post Office,
Shibuya-ku,
Tokyo 150-0043,
JAPAN.


And here are few things you need to take note before sending any letter or gift to the member(s):

i) For the letters/gifts addressed to a Janne Da Arc's member, please specify the respective member's name.
ii) Gifts which contain living things, organisms (dead or alive) or need to be refrigerated are highly prohibited.
iii) The letters and gifts will be under the post office care until the staff goes and collects them. Therefore, please only use post office services and not any courier service. The usual examples of post office services are EMS, airmail, SAL and surface mail. If EMS is expensive for you but you still want to track your letters/gifts, you can always use registered airmail/SAL.

As usual, after an album, it is compulsory to have the album tour. Acid Black Cherry 2015 tour L-Eru- will be held from March 10th, 2015 until June 15th, 2015. The balloting for the FC members will start on December 10th, 2014 and the general sales will take place on February 21st, 2015.

ABC display

Music stores all over Japan have been kind enough to prepare nice displays of INCUBUS and this also has helped in INCUBUS promotion a little bit, even though this is not really an official promotion.

In order to show appreciation towards the kindness of the nationwide music stores' staff, Acid Black Cherry set up a special page for the photos of the displays. They will update this page from time to time. Please do take a look: http://abc-display.jp

120-2

As some people have been asking and are confused on what to do regarding mu-mo shop, I think I should try to give an overview regarding this matter. Hope this will be clear enough.

You normally can buy from mu-mo shop at its international page (via tenso) or from its Japanese page (via other proxies). I'll take 3 copies of INCUBUS (+DVD) as example in order to fully utilize the proxy's fee. I separate fromjapan from other proxies as it is an established company with warehouse and it is very organized in its business (which reflects on its service fee).


So, here is the comparison between these 3 different ways:

mu-mo international
CDs price = ¥5184
Domestic shipping = ¥500 (flat rate no matter how many copies you buy)
tenso fee = ¥490 (the price will be higher if over 1kg, 3 copies of INCUBUS will be less than 1kg)
International shipping = EMS only (¥1660~¥1800 in Asia, ¥2220~¥2400 in North & Central America, ¥3460~¥3800 in South America, ¥2600~¥2800 in Europe)

mu-mo Japan via fromjapan
CDs price = ¥5184
Domestic shipping = ¥500 (flat rate no matter how many copies you buy)
fromjapan fee = ¥200 (multiple pieces of the same item will only have the charge applied once)
International shipping = Surface Mail, SAL, Airmail, EMS, FedEx
5% system fee (no PayPal fee, already included)

mu-mo Japan via other famous proxies
CDs price = ¥5184
Domestic shipping = ¥500 (flat rate no matter how many copies you buy)
Proxy fee = ¥518 (normally 10% per order)
Packing fee = ¥200 (normally ¥200 per order)
International shipping = Depends on proxy
4% PayPal fee


And while I'm on proxy talk, here is another comparison if you want to buy from the uprise shop (for Acid Black Cherry's goods). For example if you want to buy a T-shirt and a pouch from the uprise shop:

fromjapan
Price: ¥4500
Domestic shipping (uprise flat rate): ¥571 (+tax), around ¥600 I guess, sorry don't remember the exact amount
Service fee: ¥400 (¥200 per link, maximum ¥800 for the same store, it won't go higher than ¥800)
System fee: 5% (there is no PayPal fee)
Total: ¥5775
International shipping: wide range of options

Other famous proxies
Price: ¥4500
Domestic shipping (uprise flat rate): ¥571 (+tax), around ¥600 I guess, sorry don't remember the exact amount
Service fee: ¥500 (10% per order from the same shop, normally minimum ¥500 or ¥600)
Packing fee: ¥200
PayPal: 4%
Total: ¥6032
International shipping: depends on the proxy


ALL PROXIES (minus tenso as we pay the item ourselves) ask us to pay any additional fee such as bank fee or transaction fee so I do not include such fees in the calculation, but be prepared to pay for it. Such fees from the same store will be the same no matter which proxy you are using. Thus, it's kinda void in the calculation.
