ラブライブ！μ’s Final Love Live! 6th Live BD balloting results were depressing than we would have expected.
Bet you guys are dying to know the answers to these various questions: What to do after failing the ballot? ; What were the chances of getting a ticket? ; What should I do if I really want to attend the concert?
And I’ve shortlisted down to FOUR (4) Options.
Do you want to know about the current statistics (Unofficial)?
An estimated of 35,000 – 40,000 seats were being allocated for this BD balloting. And you’re entitled to ballot for 2 entry tickets per BD ticket.
Thus, the successful applicants would be down to 17,500 – 20,000 only.
In addition, an estimated of 210,000 Love Live! Movie BD were sold, and further lowering the chance of successful applicants to a mere 10% or lower.
Guess you guys would have heard of the most depressed guy「The 100 ballot tickets Love Liver」in my previous article: [ラブライブ] LOVE LIVERS REACTION TO FINAL LOVE LIVE CONCERT BALLOT RESULTS
100 balloting tickets but didn’t even win a SINGLE DAY… That’s really a pain incarnate, I can even sense his pain OTL.
[Based on Tomohiro and my statistics]
In Japan, 158 applicants with a total 762 BD tickets but only a handful of 27 applicants won the concert tickets.
And out of Japan (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia), I can count the successful applicants with just both of my hands.
[Statistics based on Tsuna from LoveLive! (Fans Taiwan) page]
400 BD ballot applicants (Majority from Hong Kong & Taiwan) took the poll. Only 51 out of 400 won the balloting. With an unknown of the BD tickets used, but majority (339 applicants) used below 5 tickets each.
THAT SUCCESS RATE AS IF IT’S A RIGGED TICKETING BALLOT…..
=> I would like to emphasize that the officials might be implementing identification for this Final Love Live! Recently, it has already been implemented on UtaPri 5th live at Saitama Super Arena (SSA), Japan.
What options do you left after failing the Final Love Live! Blu-ray Disc (BD) concert ballot?
- Official Website Preceding Ballot 「先行抽選」
For ラブライブ！μ’s Final Love Live! 6th Live BD ballot, you were only entitled to ONE round of BD balloting.
Unlike the μ’s Go→Go! LoveLive! 2015 ～Dream Sensation! 5th Live, the unsuccessful applications were given the second chance to ballot at the unsuccessful bracket.
The Preceding Ballot will be starting on January 23 to January 31 at the Love Live! Official Website Preceding Ballot.
Anyone with an eplus account can participate in this ballot. However based on past experiences, there were LESSER SEATS being allocated for the Preceding Balloting as compared to the BD balloting, and more applicants (The ONLY limitation is an eplus account). The chances of being selected will be slimmer, and thus don’t expect too much from this balloting by getting your hopes high up.
- General Ticket
The General Ticketing would typically be right after the Preceding Balloting. Under normal circumstances for “First come, first served” basis, the General Tickets would probably be totally SOLD OUT in matter of seconds! The difficulty is even higher than before…
- Yahoo Japan Auction / Auction related sites
700,000 Yen for A TICKET
Be prepared to buy the tickets at an exorbitant price on YJA (If you have limitless budget then money would solve your problem).
Currently, the lowest priced ticket was sold at an estimated of 100,000 yen. With over 300 tickets being sold on YJA, and the highest deal was at 700,000 yen!!!
The officials strictly emphasized and prohibited the resale of the concert tickets, thus getting the tickets through auction would be risky unless the sellers are willing to provide identification.
THEN THIS WOULD BE YOUR ONLY HOPE IF IDENTIFICATION IS BEING PROVIDED.
Furthermore, currently this is a blind seating ticketing (basically, you are auctioning for an unconfirmed seating) thus the auction for the seating price may vary. For blind seating, there might be some seat swapping by the fraud sellers, where lousier seat will be given to you.
Based on past experiences, it is always recommended to buy seating confirmation tickets, so as to prevent any blatantly cheating.
Option 1 to 3 are your only methods if you really want to see it LIVE at Tokyo Dome, Japan.
- Live Viewing in your country’s theater
Well, this might by your only feasible option if you’re not living in Japan or do not have any connection (Unless you can afford the 100,000 – 700,000 yen for 1 day ticket). Moreover, Tomohiro (ともひろ) has calculated that getting the tickets through auction via proxy, your tickets might not be able to arrive on time (Outside of Japan) if you don’t have any friends in Japan to collect in behalf of you.
Good luck and all the best~
