Hmmm... Katakana for both name and pronunciation?

And I can't find such a prefecture (not even online :X)...

It's not a real prefecture. Just some forms let you say you don't live in Japan.
That kanji means outside . ^^
What I usually do is write my name in romajii and then katakana for pronunciation if necessary.

Err what I meant was that you cannot select that from the drop-down box they gave you for that section :(

Ok fine, I am going to use my Chinese name for the name section; how do I find the correct Japanese pronounciation for it?

And as for the address, I will just go ahead and plonk in some placeholder data until I get a real one in the future (somehow... ;)  ) Is it possible to change the address? Or rather more importantly, where do you guys find your "address"?  8)

Just use your Chinese pronunciation and write it in Katakana as best you can. ^_^
Not sure about the other part.
And as previously mentioned just use a school or something. ^_^

...and I'm in! Thanks for the help man! I guess the hard part is just getting a Japanese name; the Katakana part is pretty easy since there are English-Katakana converters online ;)



PS: Most of the details can be changed after account creation thankfully...

Can anyone confirm if they're cutting out content from the PSP versions to resell as DLC or not? If all of the original stuff is free and they instead use the DLC market to deliver new songs I'd definitely be down for purchasing this.

So basically they don't want us to buy anything so they can say that they won't localize mainline iM@S, because the franchise doesn't sell in the west.

Hell, I'd buy it. I mean, it probably cost that much to buy the PSP version. As long as most of the songs I like are free

That's honestly why I'm tempted to buy and support it even if its a horrible cash in port.

From what I've heard its been a real battle for the im@s supporters in Namco's western branches to convince Namco Japan that the series has potential here. It'd suck for it to fail and us never get another shot at more releases :c

55 USD (Around 68 SGD)...

That's slightly cheaper than ordering from AmiAmi :S
