On the official site of the Love Live! Multimedia franchise, the sale of tickets to participate in the transmission of the “Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai 2nd Live! Brand New Story ”and“ Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai 2nd Live! Back to the TOKIMEKI ”scheduled for September 12 and 13 of this year.
Ticket prices to participate in the broadcast will be 4,800 yen (approximately $ 45) for one performance, and 12,960 yen (approximately $ 121) for all three. However, in a situation widely criticized by fans, it was also reported that ticket sales have been denied abroad. Within a popular Japanese comment forum, the various reactions of fans to the decision were collected:
- Please allow foreign fans to participate. I traveled last year from the United States to Japan just to attend Nijigaku's first concert. Believe me I'm willing to pay for it.
- I don't want to sound smug, but you know how much Love Live! they adore the musical groups of the project. Blocking us from being able to buy tickets and enjoy this presentation is completely unfair.
- Why on earth are they not taking advantage of the pandemic? If they're already doing an online gig, why the hell don't they make it international? I would pay to participate, seriously they are not smart.
- We want an option to participate abroad. We have enough money and stable internet connections to see this concert. Please let us do it.
- I hope they can find a way to allow foreign fans who do not live in Japan to see this wonderful concert. You are letting go of a great opportunity.
- Why do they hate us? We have continually purchased merchandise from their projects for the past three years, and the fact that they continue to restrict us from watching live events only infuriates me at how underappreciated they are.
