Besides the usual way of entering the lottery (through email), the international members of Janne Da Arc FC also can apply for the tour/concert lottery ourselves, directly at the FC website, without the need to bother the FC staff to do it manually. This way, we also can check the result ourselves without impatiently waiting for the FC staff to email us back the lottery result.

If any international member (who used their own non-Japanese address to join the FC, not through proxy) wants to choose this online method, you may follow the steps below.



Step 1

Go to https://fanclub.janne.co.jp

Log into the website using this information:

Go to the tour information page for FC member:

2)

If you win, go to the step 6.


Step 6

Make the payment before the payment deadline.
If you are not in Japan during the payment period, ask your trusted agent to make the payment for you. Please give or forward the payment details to your trusted agent.
If you do not have any family or friend in Japan to do it for you, you can use a deputy agent or shopping service.

If you never use any deputy agent before, I may suggest one of these...
http://www.bridge.jpn.com
http://kairai1414.livejournal.com/ (kairai1414@yahoo.co.jp)

If you ask someone else (i.e proxy) to make the payment, please screenshot the whole part in the red box I've drawn. You need to make few screenshots, don't shrink it like I did, or they couldn't read the information at all.



And make sure to include this link as well in the email: http://www.econtext.jp/support/pia/pay_cvs/

(It's the instruction on how to make the payment at various convenience stores.)



Step 7

Email the FC (saveus@janne.co.jp) a Japan-based address no later than one month before the performance date. Please make the email as simple as possible.

Email example:

To: saveus@janne.co.jp
Subject: A.B.C. 2015 arena tour L-エル-(11月~12月公演) ファンクラブチケット先行予約受付 お問い合わせ (overseas member)

Dear Save Us!

My name is XXXXXXXX. I am an overseas Janne Da Arc Official Fan Club member (membership number: XXXXXX). I have entered Acid Black Cherry 2015 arena tour “Lーエルー” (11月~12月公演) FC lottery and I won the ticket(s).

Below is the hotel address for the ticket(s) to be sent to.

[Your name as registered with the hotel]
[Hotel address, preferably in Japanese]


Regards,

XXXXXXXX



If you use Bridge/Kairai as your deputy service in step 6, you can email the FC your hotel address.
If your family/friend made the payment for you but you don't want to use their address, then you can use your hotel address as well.

For other deputy services, you can contact them yourself on how to do this.



You may refer the tour schedule here.
Feel free to ask if you need further assistance.
Good luck! (^-^)

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.

On twitter, some people are wondering how did I join the FC, renew the FC and even join the FC ballot with my home address.
Actually, oversea fans CAN join the FC with their own addresses. Here is how you can join the FC...
(If you already have the form, proceed to the step 2.)


Step 1:

Send to the FC a self-addressed stamped envelope so that they can send you back the application form.
You write your address on a brand new envelope and then put a Japan's stamp on it (I lived in Kuala Lumpur, so I used a 90 yen stamp, and that was long time ago, you need to check at your post office the postage cost from Japan to your city) OR purchase an International Reply Coupon. After that you put the self-addressed stamped envelope into another envelope and address it to:

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

Or, you can just print this on your envelope;

〒150-0043 東京都渋谷区道玄坂郵便局留 Save Us!内
ジャンヌダルク・オフィシャルファンクラブ
JAPAN.

Then you post it and wait for the form to arrive.

Another way to obtain the form is to ask other fans if they have any extra form because this form is given out for free during ABC concerts (in the fliers) like this...




Step 2:

Once you have the form, you can fill it in. The form translation can be found here; the latest form doesn't have the space for email, so you can ignore that part.
You can fill in the form in romaji, don't worry about hiragana/katakana/furigana whatsoever.


Step 3:

Get Japanese yen in cash. 6,000 yen is needed (1,000 yen for registration fee and 5,000 yen for annual fee). Properly concealed it (I normally wrap the money with an A4 paper, to make it looks like a letter).


Step 4:

Put the completed form together with the properly concealed cash in an envelope and send them to the same address above. Use a normal airmail shipping method (not registered or EMS) as it's a PO Box address, no one will be there to sign for the delivery.
Now you can just wait for your membership card to arrive.
The FC magazine will arrive every 3 months; March, June, September, December.
The FC postcards will arrive during special occassion like New Year and also when a tour/LIVE balloting (lottery) is about to start.


You also can send letters or cards to yasu using the same address, just make sure to write "To: yasu" above the address, Janne has five members you know.

Regarding the renewal, they'll send you the renewal form together with the last FC magazine of your subscription year. Just follow steps 2~4, but this time, just prepare 5,000 yen cash. For the step 2, please fill in the starred sections only.

Oversea FC members also can enter the FC lotteries for tours, concerts, events, etc.
What you need is your FC membership number, a trusted agent (family/friend/deputy) to make the payment for you in Japan and a Japan address (family's/friend's/deputy's address or your hotel address).


Step 1:

Email the FC directly (saveus@janne.co.jp) during the application period, saying that you are an overseas Janne Da Arc Official Fan Club member and want to join an FC lottery, quoting your name, your membership number and the lottery title (example: Acid Black Cherry Project 『Shangri-la』 2nd Season~北陸・甲信・東海tour~ Janne Da Arc Official Fan Club lottery). Try to make the email as simple as possible.

Make sure to include this information also:
・performance date(s) you request
・number of ticket(s) you request
・how to pay
(Please ask your family/friend/deputy their preferred choice of payment method. You can always contact me through my twitter regarding the payment methods list if you don't know because the methods can differ from one lottery to another lottery depending on the organizer. For the Acid Black Cherry Project 『Shangri-la』 tours, the payment methods can be found here.)

Some people asked me on how to read the FC postcards for the tour/concert/LIVE balloting, so I did a little translation on that.
As for the performance details in the postcards, you can always refer to my entries here.

So, yes, for the Japanese concert tickets (not just ABC), don't be blinded by the basic ticket price because the all-in price would be higher. As example, for the current Shangri-la tours, if you won one ticket, the all-in price would be 8,560 yen. It's like Air Asia. LOL. Ooopsss. But it's still cheaper than the third party price. :)
