Tickets balloting experts needed >  
Here I thought the application to the FC would be the most difficult part... How wrong I was... Now that Tegomass 4th concert has been announced, I find myself with detailed Japanese instructions on how to apply for a ticket >_>
Well, I managed to understand how to sell my soul to Kitagawa's kingdom - more or less - but there are still some obscure parts... For example, you can require up to 4 tickets for the same venue, but can you decide how they are distributed? I wanted to try and go to all the Osaka's concerts, but if I ask for 4 tickets and end up winning 4 for the same date... That would be a tragedy :(
This being said, is there a kind soul who can spare some time and help me clear out my doubts? That would be highly appreciated...

It's up to 4 tickets per performance so you can ballot for all of the performances for each venue. You specify on the ballot which performance you're balloting for.

I must look like a fool right now, but I'm so near to fulfill a dream I've been having for 5 years and if I mess up I won't ever forgive myself...
I just don't get what I'm supposed to write on the payment slip... For example: (apart from personal information) 第1(venue code) 2枚 / 第2 (venue code) 1枚 / 第3(venue code) 枚1?? Is it allowed to ask it this way? And will they simply follow this request?
BUT there's no way to know which tickets I may win... It could be all or nothing... That's really scary...
And what's 着席ブロック supposed to mean?? Are there even standing places?

And how does the result of the balloting get known? Do they send an e-mail? I guess you have to schedule the delivery of the tickets, otherwise it could happen while there's no one at home...

I haven't got the payment slip so I don't know the details, but if it's similar with NEWS concert, I try to answer based on my experienced.

If you've got the payment slip, the account no. and name is usually already written and you only need to fill some additional information.
Per payment slip, you can apply up to 3 venues based on your preference, all for the same number of tickets (if you only can go to one venue, you can only fill in the 第1希望 and leave the rest to blank). If you apply 3 venues (第1希望、第2希望、第3希望) and you win, you will only get tickets for one venue out of the 3 you applied (you won't get tickets for all 3).
If you want to go several venues, apply through different payment slips!
And yes, the scary part of balloting is that you don't know which one you'll win. If you apply through several payment slips, you may win all or nothing.

Basically in the concert, there will be a chair but you'll watch the concert while standing. But, in 着席ブロック, you watch the show while sitting (I think it's usually for family with small children).

Once the balloting result is up, they're inform you through e-mail that the result is up and you have to call a certain phone number to find out your result.
However, if the venue you applied is popular, you may win the venue you didn't apply or sometimes there will be additional dates.
They'll also inform you about the delivery of tickets, but it will only get into the mail box, not directly passed to you.

Thank you! You have been really kind... It's getting easier to understand now ^^
I just wanted to go to all the Osaka shows, but I guess that by 3 choices they mean different VENUES, not different shows...pity :P

Hopefully this should help you, I followed this guide: http://jefaq.blogspot.jp/2011/01/how-to-get-johnnys-je-concert-tickets.html

But yeah you need to fill out a new form for each show, not one form for all of them.

As for how to find out if you hit, here: http://jefaq.blogspot.jp/2011/02/calling-to-see-if-you-hit-for-johnnys.html

Google is your friend. ;D

And yes there are standing places in some venues.

This guide is really detailed, I just hope not many things changed since 2011!
I guess it's impossible to go to all 3 Osaka's shows...by three choices they mean different venues, not different shows in the same place...it's a pity!
I'll just put all my hopes in that single chance I get!
Thank you for the help!

You can apply for all three shows in Osaka if you like, you just have to fill out separate forms for each show. I'm balloting for all the days at Yokohama myself.

You can apply for different time & date as many as you want. But it's Johnny's. In my experience for a long time, they don't do simple balloting. It depends on the demand and popularity.
And also they sometimes transfer tickets at the different date in different venue. We can claim a refund if we want, but they take a handling fee.
Under Johnny's world, we are like a slave(>_<) We have to follow what they want. And the problem is they have no common sense at all .
Many strong fangirls got several different FC IDs by using their other family names e.t.c, then they finally manage to get tickets they want.
