    Wonderful news about the nomination! Even if he doesn’t win, I hope a lot more people take notice of him after this! Sorry for the OT and I know it’s already been posted but for those of you who haven’t yet, please take a minute to sign. You might remember the Dodds brothers from ACI. Here’s a photo of Andrew with Yuzu make this not so OT.

  6. I can understand separate sales because of the convoluted system already in place and of course extra tickets for locals but it does seem extremely lopsided. I’ve seen Japanese fans complaining that all the best seats were reserved for JTB as well and a lot of people in Japan weren’t able to get tickets, either, so it’s not easy for anyone, I suppose.

  8. I've tried to apply for FS tours through local JTB before and they refused me so probably asking a friend or proxy is better. Being so close to the arena, you wouldn't have to travel with a group so probably just enough Japanese to pick up tickets and check in would be needed.
  9. Fingers crossed you can find a way to apply. 🙏
  10. The cheapest option is 198,000yen for all event S ticket and 5 nights in a business hotel near Omiya Station.
  11. Not sure of any more details or even if it's possible for foreigners to enter. Even then, I wonder about the language barrier.

    It says that but when you got to check out it says it won’t ship anything to Australia.

    A cute Yuzu at Prince Ice World 2012. What a shame he can’t do this sort of thing anymore.
  16. For those of you going to Japan, the first cherry blossom forecast has been released. Flowers are expected to open in Tokyo on the 22nd of March and reach full bloom on the 1st of April. https://www.jrailpass.com/blog/japan-cherry-blossom-forecast Forecasts can change so make sure to keep checking for updates.

    Guys, I am not keeping it together with today’s new content. I want to laughcry and crylaugh but I feel it’ll be so loud it will shatter this reality and propel us all into another dimension. ETA #dramatique

    There were also standing tickets available which were cheaper, though I don’t remember the cost.
  20. Bots try hundreds of thousands of times to get tickets in each general sale so it’s a much bigger problem than just one person applying for a few extra tickets to sell. I suppose the only way around it is to make all tickets smartphone tickets and only allow selling back to the organiser to be redistributed (they already have this option.) RIP foreigners’ chances again.
  21. People say bots. I don’t know if anything can be proved. I saw someone rallying people to email Lawson demanding that all future sales be lottery only to prevent that sort of thing but with the SMS verification that’d be the end of things for foreign fans, so...
  22. Viagogo is notoriously risky. Especially if you're travelling to an international competition, I don't think it's worth it. I saw on Twitter that there are 3000+ tickets being resold and that at this rate 1 in 30 to 1 in 50 attendees will be a person who had to buy a resale ticket. o_o
  23. So it's just a proxy buying service that hasn't removed lotteries that have passed their date?
