THE ONE website

THE ONE is the BABYMETAL Official “Club”. (technically it isn’t a “fan club”, but it’s basically what it is)

Full information of this on their website (use translator up top)

Here is a video explanation, if you prefer (the text version still includes more information and a step by step guide):

Benefits of the Club:

Length of Membership: The Membership lasts until March 31st, no matter when you join. (For example: if you join at the end of February, you will only be a member for 1 month).

The membership year generally opens on April 23rd.

How to become a Member?

To become a member, you must redeem a code on THE ONE website. To get the code, you must purchase a specific piece of merch on the A!Smart website, which changes every year. This year (2020/21) it’s THE ONE Tee 2020 [If it’s past February/March 2021 when you are reading this then this item will be out of date]

THE ONE Tee 2020

The cost is ‎¥5,000 (around $45 US Dollars), plus shipping (and applicable taxes from your country). Here you have a currency converter.

Step 1: Order the item. Link.

Here is a Guide on using A!Smart in case you have trouble/want some tips.

Step 2: Once you have the item, check for your membership code, it’s found on the packaging of the item. You must scratch off the silver part, where you will find your code. Be very careful, as people have scratched the number off, so do it slowly, and on a hard surface. If you end up scratching the number off, send an email to to get a replacement code (they have english-speaking staff).

Step 3: It’s time to register. Go to THE ONE website and choose your language on the top right.

Note if entering between March 31st and April 22nd: THE ONE is closed during this period, wait for it to re-open on April 22nd.

Note if entering between April 22nd and June 15th: it’s still the transitory period for people with the previous THE ONE year membership. If you are new, simply click on either register link and continue on with the guide. If you were a THE ONE member the previous year, you can transfer the same name over to this year, just click on the transfer name link and follow the instructions on the website. If you were a member and want a new name, just follow the register link, as if you were a new member.

Step 3.2: Introduce your code, email, and accept the terms and conditions.

Step 3.3: You will receive an email (in Japanese) with a link, click on it. Once the link opens you must:

  1. Enter your METAL name of choice. It must be in ALL CAPS (the -METAL will be added automatically, so do not write it).
  2. Introducing the password you want (type it in a 2nd time to confirm)
  3. Type your last name, then your first name (VERY IMPORTANT to write it correctly if you plan on getting tickets to shows in Japan)
  4. Then, select that you live outside Japan (very last option), and type in your country.
  5. Finally, your birthday, and gender.
  6. Confirm

Step 3.4: It will send you to a confirmation page. Confirm, and you are done!

You are now a THE ONE member! Congratulations!

So, how do I get exclusive merch, or know when they release new merch?

Good question. Check the BABYMETAL A!Smart page for any items they have in stock that you may be interested in. When you try to add The One items, it will ask you for your THE ONE name and password, enter them and the item will be added to your cart.

For new items, you will be sent an email a few days/weeks before the items go on sale.

I want to go to Japan, and attend a show!

If you plan on going to Japan, and attending some shows; first, you must add your picture (this is very important, as they use the picture to verify your identity):

Step 1: On THE ONE website, log in.

Step 2: Click on “My page”, found on the top right.
Step 3: On the left of your information, it should say “THE ONE ID”, click it. Once a pop-up appears, click below, where it says “THE ID”.

Step 4: Here, you can upload your picture. Please check the rules: it must be clear, (I recommend you stand against a light-colored wall, and good lighting), and also no obstructions, like a Kitsune, hat, glasses, or anything else. Once you took the picture, transfer it to your PC.

Most likely, it will say the image is to big. If you don’t know how to make it small, I recommend TinyPNG.

How do I get tickets as a member?

To apply for tickets, you must enter a lottery (that means there is a chance you can lose). To find if BM has any shows in Japan, check their schedule. If they happen to have any dates you like, check on THE ONE website for any links to the lotteries, and follow them. Choose the type of ticket you want, fill in your information, and apply. You can enter once for each show you want to attend (if you made a mistake or wish to change ticket type, you can reapply, so do not worry).

If you have more questions about tickets, like “what if I lost all the lotteries?”, check this more extensive guide on tickets.
