Following the highly successful first leg of Perfume’s 1st World Tour in Taiwan @ NeoStudio, staff has announced that they will be launching membership to Perfume’s exclusive fanclub P.T.A. (Perfumeとあなた/Perfume to anata) as soon as next Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2013. Provisional registration has already begun, so sign up with your email address at pta-world.com (available up until November 30)!
It is still a bit of a mystery what the differences, if any, will be between the international fanclub and the native Japanese fanclub, other than access to the P.T.A. exclusive website and digital contents. There remains a few questions of what countries will have access to membership and what languages translations may be available as well.
However, in addition to this much awaited news, Perfume’s famous fan goods supplier, ASMART, has announced that they will partner with Tenso to provide international shipping. The name may be familiar if you have ever tried to ship something from Japan via internet shopping sites that do not provide overseas shipping. Many current overseas P.T.A. members have also used this site jointly to acquire membership, so it is curious that this news has arrived at such an opportune moment. Since native P.T.A. members receive goodies for free through postal services, an overseas shipper is one of the most important keys to unlock a successful international fanclub.
