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.

Perfume still has many surprises waiting for us, as 2012 has still yet to end. Let’s look forward to more exciting announcements from out favorite 3 girls, as they embark on their next tour stop in Hong Kong!

Note: As the Perfume World Tour rolls forward, please remember to refrain from leaking information regarding the concerts, such as set lists and photos. Perfume and their staff thanks you.

Perfume Global Site Goes Live!

We’re pleased to announced that the pre-launch for Perfume’s global website ran successfully, with well over 20,000 tweets trending the #perfume_um tag on Twitter. Today Universal Music Group launched the global site, which you can find at perfume-global.com/!

Additionally a couple more social networks were opened, including the Perfume Global Twitter account @Perfume_um as well as their own Facebook page which you can “Like”.

Perfume’s 4th album JPN will be available wherever iTunes is in operation on March 6th.

We hope this will be a great beginning for Perfume’s international endeavors, and hopefully many of us fans world wide may see Perfume in our country soon!

Perfume Headline New Kirin Ad, Launch English Site

Upon returning to Japan from the Cars 2 World Premiere in Los Angeles, Perfume continued positive gestures to their overseas fans by not only thanking their international fanbase in Manager’s Voice blog, but also launching their English website at http://en.perfume-web.jp/.

The English site mirrors the Japanese site, and will hopefully provide English speaking fans, in addition to other international fans with up to the minute news involving Perfume.

Elsewhere, beginning June 29th, “Kasuka na Kaori” will be involved in a new advertising campaign with Kirin to help sell their low alcohol and low calorie chu-hi drink (you must be 21, or your country’s legal drinking age to visit the link). It will be the third ad campaign with Kirin, which had previously used “Laser Beam” for its chu-hi promotion.

Below is the 15 second commercial that will launch on June 29th.
