Once you've heard it, you'll never unhear it. BABYMETAL is a band that you'll either love or hate. Amuse producer Key Kobayashi delved into the unknown and fused Idol (J-Pop) and Metal, creating a sub-group of Sakura Gakuin: BABYMETAL! Having blossomed in Japan, they exploded into the Western world after their first album release in February 2014. Going on to tour the world within just four years of their creation, they really have taken the metal scene by storm.

2023.03.19 00:55 Wackycat5 HELP

I have a huge problem. I recently ordered a vinyl on cdjapan, while selecting the registered airmail option. It was ordered around the 23th of januari and it arrived in my country not long after. It made a lot of stops till it went radiosilent on the 24th of februari. I got an update today telling me "Arrival at inward office of exchange". Google told me this meant it had arrived in my country, but that couldn't be right, seeing how it's at "Kawasaki Higashi Post Office (Kanagawa Prefecture)". I am extremely worried that I somehow missed my chance and it'll be lost. To rub even more salt on the wound, they removed the "estimated delivery date" option they left blank for a month. Can somebody please help me. If this isn't the right subreddit to ask, please tell me where I should ask this.

So went to CDJapan to see if I can buy the sunglasses but then got denied because of rules of shipping prohibited products, understandable. By any miracle, does anyone know any other way to acquire them? By this point I need to be Japan to get them, and I don't feel like ebay is the safest bet.

2023.03.12 05:35 clessi_a Help locate Johnny by Takaya Kawasaki

So, this song specifically is something that I've been searching for for a while. I use Amazon Music as my main streaming app, and I listened to this song up until it was removed from the app, I can't remember how long ago. It's been nagging on my mind, and I just can't let it go. The song comes from the album Harukaze, which was also wiped from Amazon Music. When I looked it up, I saw that CDJapan allows you to buy the CD, but I've had the link saved on my phone for a while and check up on it occasionally. The CD is always marked as sold out. Other than that, it shows up on the internet for Spotify, but it does not appear on the app (confirmed by a friend who uses Spotify because I do not) and when trying the preview function online (I don't know if it's just the formatting of being online) it does not play. In addition, the text is a dull gray color, not white, so I assume that it's a problem with the song's accessibility. Anyway, this is all the info I can really offer but I hope it helps. I'd like to listen to it again before I forget about the way it sounds (which I barely remember now). Due to it being Japanese, there's probably a language barrier that I will find myself unable to overcome if I ever find anything more about it in the future, but if anyone has any information to share about the song or its album at all, I would be really glad. Thank you!

Ordering Guide for Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse (Digital / Physical)

Image: Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse is Available Now!
Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse has finally released! Below you will find a guide for Digital Ordering as well as a Guide for Physical Ordering via Importing through Japan. I also attempt to keep aware of any deals for the digital editions, which I will post here as well.
Latest Official Trailer - The Story Trailer:

Ordering Guide: Digital

Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse can be purchased digitally on PC + Switch + PS4/PS5 + Xbox! The Digital Deluxe Edition contains an Artbook with Concept Designs, Developer Commentary, and a Soundtrack. Plus several gorgeous costumes. See details here: Note: Although the KT America site shows screenshots of the Artbook in Japanese, the released Artbook is fully in English!
Current Deals

Ordering Guide: Physical

Physical Orders in Japan for Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse are up across several stores online. This guide will provide an up-to-date list and rough walkthrough for ordering an Import from these stores, for those of us, like myself, who would like the physical media, goods, and perks offered in Japan.

Physical Editions

Physical Game: Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch
Image: PS4 and Switch Physical Game Cases
Note: The PS4 edition includes a free upgrade to PS5 (see KT Product Page)

Goods Box (Sold Bundled or Separately)

Contents: Artbook entitled "Rogetsu Isle Reminiscences" containing a new Short Story about Marie Shinomiya (an early game character), Two Clear Files, and One Soundtrack CD. Note: As of yet, it is unclear whether the collection will contain the art of the digital-only Artbook being sold with the Digital Deluxe edition. For more details about the Artbook, visit this page: Rogetsu Isle Reminiscences
Image: Goods Box containing \"Rogetsu Island Reminiscences\" Cover + Three Sample Pages, Two Clear Files, and Soundtrack CD
Fortunately, KT is offering the Goods Box for sale separately from the game media. So, if you'd rather purchase a digital version of the game (say, on Steam), and then acquire the Goods Box separately, you can do so at a cheaper price. Please note, that some stores appear to be only offering the Game Media + Goods Box bundled together, but most offer it separately at the cheaper price. You can, of course, purchase both Game Media + Goods Box together. More information about the contents of the Goods Box can be found here: Koei Tecmo Shop Page

English / Multi-Language Support

At present we have no official information from KT on which physical editions will contain or receive an English / Multi-Language patch. Since KT has unfortunately been mum about which physical editions of the MOTLE Remaster per region will support English / Multi-Language (if that matters to you) it would be *likely* safer to preorder the Asia region editions.
Update (3.14.2023): We have received confirmation regarding the following Physical editions:
  • PS4/PS5 (Asia Region): English Support Included!
  • Switch (Asia Region): English Support Included!
  • Switch (Japan Region): No English Support.
As for the Goods Box content, we have confirmed that the interior of the Asia region Artbook is in Japanese.

Store Listings

For the sake of clarity, these are organized according to what region the vendor offers. At present, there are several Japan region vendors, and only a few vendors which are offering the Asia editions: PlayAsia, VideoGamesPlus, and XtraLife. Feel free to comment below if you notice other vendors offering the Asia edition, and I will be sure to update this list.
Japan / Asia Region Editions + Goods Box
Japan Region Editions + Goods Box
Animate Online
KT Spot
WonderGoo (via Rakuten)
Yorozuya Shop Beak Takarajima: (search for "月蝕の仮面")

Collectible Items

Various stores also offer unique collectible items, depending on the shop chosen. You can see a listing of those here, kindly summarized and translated by the Zero Wiki:
Image: Preorder Collectible Items Translated by Zero Wiki

International Shipping

Since many from the list of stores are in Japan, some, but not all, will ship Internationally. For those exceptions, it is recommended that you use a Parcel Service, such as the following:

Image: Treasure Japan \"Shopping\" Tab Order Form
It is recommended that you ship via either EMS, Fedex, DHL, Airmail, or Economy Air (SAL). As of 12/14/2022, SAL and Airmail (far more economical options) have still not resumed service due to the pandemic. Tracking is typically provided for EMS, Fedex, DHL, and Airmail, but you should double-check regardless of which option you choose. You also may need to input a Shipping Weight in order to checkout properly. Based on the weights shown at YesAsia's site (which are estimates), they are the following:
  • Game Only = 150 grams
  • Premium Box = 800 grams
  • Goods Box Only (no game) = ~650 grams


Prices and shipping costs likely vary widely, so choose wisely.

2023.03.10 10:48 nevew666 Ensemble stars artbook ?

I'm currently in Japan and I wanna purchase merch and artbook of ensemble stars.
While I didn't find anything interesting at the animate at ikebukuro, I did find LOT of artbooks. Problem is.... We can see what's inside. And I don't truly want to buy a book with 90% text and a few images...
I found these ones book 1 the second one with Rei and Koga, and I think the 3rd one with Eichi and Tori.
But also a big one: book 2
And finally, a bigger one : book 3 (actually, not truly sure it's this one, I found on in a mandarake shop but again, no way to know what's inside...
I'd love artbook with illustrations, details on characters and costume, characters sheets. If you know which ones are good, please share :). I'm planning to buy some.

Our Bright Parade, hololive's 4th fes concert

What is Our Bright Parade?

Our Bright Parade is hololive's musical concert portion of the SUPER EXPO 2023. It's the fourth livestreamed concert featuring hololive talent across all it's branches and generations, and the first to feature holoX, holoID Gen 2, and holoEN CouncilRyS. As with the previous fes concert, this will be fully 3D Augmented Reality, with talent moving around the stage and accompanied by a live band. This year has been described as "a nonstop shiny stage where anyone can join the parade anytime, regardless of generation and boundary".

What is holo*27?

This year marks the first time a third concert stage has been added. holo*27 is a collaboration with sound producer DECO*27, and will contain original songs as well as various covers. You can learn more about the holo*27 project, as well as listen to some of the music already produced on the official site here:

When is Our Bright Parade?

Day 1 of Our Bright Parade begins on March 18, 2023 at 6:00pm JST, after the EXPO events for the day have ended. The waiting room for the concert opens an hour early to let viewers settle in.
Day 2 of Our Bright Parade begins on March 19, 2023 at 6:00pm JST, after the EXPO events for the day have ended. The waiting room for the concert opens an hour early to let viewers settle in.

How do I watch the 4th fes concerts?

First off, you'll want to go here. This is the official page for everything related to hololive SUPER EXPO 2023 and the 4th fes concerts. From here, you can either click the "Ticket" button at the top right, or the big round "TICKET" bubble on the bottom right.
This should take you to the official ticket page. Here you can find a variety of information about the different tickets, the shows, and precautions. If navigating to this page from the official 4th fes site, it will default to Japanese, but if you click the "EN" bubble just about "Important Notes" you can translate everything on the page.
These are the official links for all 4th fes and SUPER EXPO related tickets. You'll want to scroll down until you see either the "EXPO Streaming" or "4th fes Streaming" options.
It is important to note that this page only directs you to the Streaming+ platform. Streaming tickets are also officially available through the SPWN platform, which you have to navigate to here:
The SPWN website may default to Japanese, but you can change the site language to English by clicking an option at the top right of the page. Unfortunately, I've hit the maximum on images allowed per post, so you can check where it is on my previous guide here:
If you're purchasing tickets through Streaming+:
The Streaming+ page for 4th fes is located here: You have the option of purchasing the Day 1, Day 2, or holo*27 tickets separately, or the "Through ticket" that bundles all 3 shows into one. Simply click "BUY NOW", to be directed to the page corresponding to the ticket you are interested in, then you can "ADD TO CART" each ticket you want. You'll be asked for your information, including Country and Nationality, before being taken to a Sofbank page for payment. This page will be in Japanese, but is just asking for your credit card info. Once payment is complete, they'll send you two emails: one detailing your order, and one containing the link you'll use to access the show(s) you paid for.
If you're purchasing tickets through SPWN:
You have the option of purchasing Day 1, Day 2, or holo*27 tickets separately, or the "Through ticket" that bundles all 3 shows into one. Click "Buy Tickets" on any one of the ticket options to be taken to the combined ticket sales page. Here you have to change the quantity on the ticket(s) you want from 0 to 1 and then "Add Tickets to Cart". The SPWN event page for 4th fes should change the "Buy Tickets" option to "Before the Live". Once the show starts/is available to watch, this will change again so that you can access the show directly.

Which ticket should I get?

If you want the full experience, you'll want to grab the Through ticket that covers both days as well as the holo*27 concert. The main difference beyond that is the choice between Streaming+ and SPWN. Streaming+ is a new option this year, I can't say much about it, and it costs more. I've also heard from a few non-US people now that have been blocked from using it. SPWN is what I'm personally comfortable with, it's proven to be reliable for the previous concerts, and costs less.
Ultimately the choice is yours, but for comparison:
Streaming+ - 7,550JPY/55.50USD separately, 21,850JPY/160.63USD for the Through ticket
SPWN- 6,500JPY/47.80USD separately, 19,500JPY/143.50USD for the Through ticket

=Day 1=

4th fes Day 1 performers
Day 1 performs on March 18 at 6:00pm JST. Members from all across hololive are included, and unlike previous fes concerts, new Gens/members are not separated off into an "Opening Act" or "Additional Cast" segment. Each branch and generation is expected to be fully integrated and will perform together. There will also be a group performance of the 4th fes theme song "Our Bright Parade".

=Day 2=

4th fes Day 2 performers
Day 2 performs on March 19 at 6:00pm JST.

The holo*27 concert takes place on March 19 at 1:00pm JST. Members from all across hololive are included and will be performing music from the holo*27 project alongside producer DECO*27.

hololive Member Watchalongs

Traditionally, members from hololive not performing during the fes concert will stream a live watchalong where they react to the concert as it happens. These streams do not include any images or audio from the event, but are there as a way to share the experience with others.

Previous events had so much last minute demand that they crashed SPWN's payment system, leading to some people getting charged incorrect amounts of money or missing the live event entirely. Consider this your reminder to buy your ticket beforehand if you're planning on watching live.
There are two separate event listings for both the 4th fes and Special stage events, what's the difference?
-Both give the same tickets to the same events. The separate listings are separated into "JP" and "EN", but this only really applies to the live chat rooms during the show. Even if you end up with a 'JP' ticket, you'll get the same experience as an 'Eng' ticket, it's just the chat room you'll see during the show will be primarily with Japanese viewers.
What happens if I can't catch the livestream?
-You can purchase tickets even after the livestreams end. Your ticket entitles you to watching the event live, as well as access to the VOD of the showings you bought tickets for until April 21, 2023 at 23:59 JST.
Will there be any clips or VODs available of the fes concerts or Special Stage events?
-Any clips or videos of the paid events will be provided by Cover after the event ends. Screenshots uploaded to social media are allowed, but if you see any clips or videos uploaded from outside Cover itself, please report them. VODs are not downloadable from SPWN or Streaming+.
What is the difference between the "open" time and "start" time for the live stream?
-The 'open' time is a period before the show that allows viewers to filter in to the stream and get comfortable. During this time there will be an audience chatroom available, with ads and promos being shown on screen, but not much else.
How long are the shows?
-For the 4th fes concerts, around 3 hours. holo*27 is scheduled to run for 2 hours. The Special Stage events are an hour each. The SUPER EXPO as a whole is scheduled to run for approximately 6 and a half hours each day before giving way to Our Bright Parade.
Will there be translations or subtitles?
-For Our Bright Parade, a member of hololive or Holostars who is not performing may do a watchalong and chime in with translations from time to time. The SUPER EXPO streams on YouTube may have fan translators in the live chat using LiveTL to translate what they can, but these events will almost exclusively be in Japanese outside of the EXPO events involving holoEN or holoID.
Will this event be available in VR?
-There are no plans to feature any VR support. hololive's VR concerts are almost exclusively under the Cinderella Switch branding through VARK.
Can I watch on more than one device/Can I hold a watch party for my friends?
-Generally speaking, you can switch the device you're watching on at least once and cannot watch from multiple devices at the same time. Beyond that, they ask that everyone who watches the shows has their own paid ticket.
Will Tempus be at the SUPER EXPO?
-The only event they are mentioned in is the venue-only StarsPuri exhibit. On March 16, the boys announced they would be doing their own EXPO walk on Day 2 on Axel's channel.
What about merch?
-SUPER EXPO merch is available here! EXPO/fes related merch usually doesn't go on sale until the event is underway and often takes months to ship overseas. Before this year's event, it was possible to pre-order some merch in Japan using the new holo-cart app, but the app was not available to overseas fans.
Is there a way to watch the concert beyond the period it's available on SPWN/Streaming+?
-The fes concerts get released on Blu-ray some time after the event ends. They generally are not sold through the hololive Official Shop, or outside Japan, and usually require ordering through a site such as CDJapan to get it shipped overseas. For reference, you can find the CDJapan listing for the 3rd fes Blu-ray here. The announcement of the BDs will usually be made on the hololive official Twitter or website.
How much would it be for all available tickets?
-If you were to purchase the Through ticket for 4th fes, as well as all three Special Stage tickets, you're looking at spending approximately $254 USD through Streaming+, or $221 USD through SPWN. Please also remember both services charge a fee on top of the listed ticket price. Spend wisely.

2023.02.28 06:54 answerofthequestion Buy Japanese Manga Internationally

How to buy Japanese manga if I'm living out of Japan? Is cdjapan good? Or Amazon(japan)?
How did you get your copies?
If Volume 1 gets sold out, will it not get reprinted again since the manga has been axed? (I was waiting to start manga collection from next year but I'm afraid volume 1 will be sold out :"-) )

And that’s all there is to it! :D
