ABC 2015 Arena Tour L (1st part).png

General sales for Acid Black Cherry 2015 arena tour L-エル- (September & October shows) are currently ongoing at various playguides.

This is a very rare chance for the normal international fans because the tickets are still available due to so many venues and dates this time. This is a golden chance for you to buy the tickets without paying ridiculously high price, you can even use the cheap proxy like From Japan as you can treat this as buying other online goods. This is no longer a ticket lottery or ticket reservation, you will be buying the real tickets directly. You wouldn't know if you can get an opportunity like this again in the future, they probably won't be booking so many venues and so many dates like this again in the future, this is pretty much an experiment to them, to see how it will turn out.

You can buy the tickets at these places:

Ticket Pia

Venues: Makuhari, Tokyo & Yokohama

Venue: Fukuoka


Venues: Makuhari, Tokyo, Fukuoka & Yokohama

Lawson Ticket

Venues: Makuhari, Tokyo, Fukuoka & Yokohama

Yahoo Tickets (This is officially Yahoo ticketing, NOT Yahoo Auction.)

Venues: Makuhari, Tokyo, Fukuoka & Yokohama

Makuhari (Makuhari Event Hall) & Yokohama (Yokohama Arena) are actually in Kanto region, just like Tokyo; Tokyo City, Makuhari City and Yokohama City are close to each other. So they are considered "Tokyo venues". Remember Free Live, where the Tokyo/Kanto show was held at Makuhari Seaside Park? The concept is the same here.

Anyone can buy these tickets. That's why this is called general sales.
You may refer the tour schedule here (in English).
If you are already in Japan, you also can buy the tickets from the Loppi Machine at Lawson stores (buying tutorial at YouTube).
These are the L-codes:

If you never use any deputy agent before, I may suggest one of these... (

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.

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!

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,
Tokyo 150-0043,

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.

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:
