    Well a lottery seems like a bad idea. It’s much harder to get a ticket from random chance than just buying one. Maybe a bad marketing choice. I hope anyone entering the lottery will get one at least.

    Actually lotteries help keep the website from shutting down from too many people accessing it at the same time. Having had to deal with that in the US a number of times, and the tickets selling out right away because scalpers and others flood the ticket website right off the bat, a lottery helps keep that from happening. Given the rise in bots also makes this an even bigger problem. Yes it's stressful not to know if you won tickets, but realistically, it's easier than having to deal with crashing websites and then the concert being sold out within minutes because of scalpers and the like.

    Good luck to everyone who wants to go!

    THe lottery system is nice in Japan (just that they took into account your profile information and when you are a "beginner" you always has a bad number... until you buy often and many tickets xD).

    And, I have also to pay right away after receiving the confirmation email you're elected xD otherwise you will be in the back xD).

    I've only used it a couple of times. Don't they send out confirmation re the tickets a day or two after the lottery ends? And then later they send another e-mail for paying for the tickets and getting them?

    I'm curious how they will handle that part of it for overseas. It's possible they may actually mail the tickets to people instead of having to do the whole konbini thing. Maybe like how Mana's fan club use to handle tickets? I'm so glad that he's doing this again. I feel bad that I kind of mentioned it more than once in my "send in reviews" but he does have a pretty strong international fan base. Last year at the second birthday concert I'd say about 1/3 of the crowd was foreigners and a number of those traveled to Japan for the shows and of course other things.

    Yes ! but once you get the one for paying, you have to pay ASAP otherwise you will get a bad number... X_X I didn't that before a while xD (can't leave my work to pay a f***** ticket xD).

    Good question, I guess there is a limited number of seats ...

    Which is why it's great to be able to get the tickets directly now. I've had a friend get my DSV ticket and she did not know what to do and never got the actual ticket. Then using services that put in for the lottery, helpful but they also do not go get the actual tickets timely which means the seats are not great. With this, perhaps there is a chance to get a decent seat or number for standing. I hope Mana will continue with this. I'd rather pay a little more directly to him than these services. Which exist because it's impossible to buy directly from e+ (although it appears the last time an account was created with my name, lol) And I am definitely not wanting to go to a scalper. Funding that just makes things more difficult for everyone tbh.

    Just to add, the venue for DS holds about 3000, so with the seats there will probably be room for between 1500 to 2000. Even with the lottery and buying through Moitie, I would imagine there is a good chance to get a ticket. I'm wondering though if people will have to chose the tier and if you don't get that tier you are out of luck or if they will allow people who try for say the front section, be able to get a ticket for the second section or standing?

    a lottery system doesn't mean the system won't shut down when the regular sale starts :Pit happens when bigger bands release their tickets. My guess is that the main reason for the lottery system is for die hard fans to guarante a better ticket, and also for bands to get an estimation of the amount of people who will attend. Considering many smaller bands also has the lottery system.

    Information on how to put in for tickets if you are living overseas. It's a little complicated. Basically the ordering will happen on the Wunderwelt Fleur site. Applications can be made for either the premium seats or the regular seats. You can not put in for both. And no standing tickets will be sold through the site. Application period starts February 19th at 12 noon JST time and ends March 4th at 23:00 JST. There is nothing on the Wunderwelt Fleur site at this time. Emails for the results of the lottery will be sent out starting March 5th.

    No having to go to a konbini to get the physical tickets. It's like will-call. The actual tickets will be at the venue the day of the concert.

    There is a lot more information on the Moitie FB for anyone who is thinking of entering https://www.facebook.com/moimememoitieofficial/posts/1923567891290469


    (I hope I got all of this right. It's late where I am)

    For anyone wanting to get tickets for Deep Sanctuary VI using the smart phone eplus application Sumatique, the lottery for those tickets begins today, February 19th at 12 noon. It ends March 4th at 23:00, JST.

    For anyone wanting to get paper tickets through eplus, that lottery begins March 7th at 12 noon and ends March 18th at 23:00 JST. Important to note that they will be checking the name on the ticket to your ID.

    Update is on the Malice Mizer website (makes me happy to see it being updated) http://www.malice-mizer.co.jp/

    Just to add, if anyone was thinking of going through a scalper, the ticket has to be in your name.

    Alas, it doesn't seem like I'm going to have a chance to go to this one. Is anyone putting their hat in the ring for the premium bonus tickets?
