Tips: (At the very least applicable to the Docomo store in Kagoshima) If you are like me and your work only offers work contracts one year at a time (so visa and residence card are also only one year) then you are not eligible to pay off your phone month by month. You must pay for your phone up front, either cash or credit card. You will also need your residence card when you go in. There is a chance your luck might be like mine and your card doesn’t work with their machines, you will instead of a credit card need these three things:

  1. 在留カード 「ざいりゅうカード」residence card
  2. 住民票「じゅうみんひょう」certificate of residence
  3. キャッシュカード  cash card (give to you when you open a Japanese bank account)

Should your credit card not work for some reason, have these and cash. I get that this is a lot to take in but I wish I knew some of this before today. Also, you might need a はんこ, offical seal with your name, to properly “sign” the documents. 

Also, to give you an idea of what this might cost you, I’ll put up the prices and total of what I’ll have to pay:

  • カケホーダイライト ¥1700  each call under 5 minutes is free for this price
  • データパーク 2GB ¥3500 (if you want 5GB of data it’s ¥5000)
  • SPモード  ¥300 (honestly don’t remember what this is)
  • ケータイ補償サービス   ¥500 
  • 機種代金 ¥43,848 (one time only)
  • 手数料 ¥3240 (one time only)

So the total fee I will pay upfront is ¥53,568 but after that the monthly fee with taxes is¥6480. Go forth and be prepared for this because I sure as hell wasn’t ready for this today

Hitsdailydouble on Pink (I think an anon asked before?) Looks like a huge debut for Pink. Awesome!! "P!nk should land on top of our SPS chart next Friday with the fourth-largest debut YTD. Beautiful Trauma will also collect 2017's largest opening week for a female artist. In other words: BIG. >>> P!nk (RCA) 300-375k SPS, 290-340k album

That is amazing!  It’s been 5 years since her last album and those are numbers anyone would kill for in today’s music biz landscape.  

“According to HDD, ‘Beautiful Trauma’ by P!nk is expected to debut at #1 with 290-340K in pure sales and 300-375K in SPS. #BeautifulTrauma is set to become the biggest female debut of the year!“ (Pop Crave).

Quick question: any tips for grinding sp relatively fast? Thanks!

Easiest way normally is to go into a chain challenge map you havent beaten yet, ideally a 10 map one on easy, and then do 9 maps and on the last map give up. You keep any sp you gained in the 9 maps and it won’t half the sp gain. You can get like 100-300 sp depending on skills and timing.

The other option right now is the camilla warriors map as it’s so cheap and there’s tons of units.

S&W M&P10 - .308 Winchester
S&W M&P15 - 5.56 NATO
Remington 870 - 3 inch shells
S&W 617 - 10 round .22lr
Walther P99AS - .40S&W

Want to add:
S&W M&P SHIELD - 9mm
S&W M&P R8 or S&W 686 in 6inch barrel - .357 Magnum
Remington 700 SPS in .300 Winchester Magnum
Might be getting the Ruger 10/22 my father trained me on if he chooses to.

Yes, I’m a Smith & Wesson fan.
