    note. this article is a mix of my own words and translated material. All translated/borrowed material is in quotations. - Ranka

    [170912] Only Aeri’s can protect EXO.

    Part 1.
    "Even during times of hardship like when they didn't win the Daesang, EXO apologised for worrying Aeris.

    The tears from last year’s MMA said everything. Even with overwhelming digital numbers and voting, they still didn’t get it. Baek’s spoke with a heavy heart, “Thank you, I’m sorry and I realized that I have to work harder."

    They did their best despite many challenges this year and now it’s Aeri’s turn. Up til now, it's a fact that Japanese Aeri’s haven’t been as active as Chinese Aeri’s. In addition to the current situation in China, the things that Japanese fans can do is growing. And I feel very thankful we can help bear that burden.

    When things like this sense of duty and responsibility to stream and vote feel heavy, please help lighten the load for each other. We are always here by your side supporting you. That’s the reason we are here. All the other Japanese Aeri’s are here too. However, can you share your strength with fellow Aeri’s? Please don’t shy away from streaming and help lend your power. Let’s get that Daesang!"

    Up until this comeback, Japanese EXO-L have historically fallen behind their international and Korean counterparts. Besides having a different fandom culture (no weekly music shows/streaming is less important), there was a huge language barrier keeping Japanese fans from learning how to support EXO.

    Since The War: Kokobop and Power, many fanbases and chart support teams have popped up around Twitter, which is what Japanese fans mainly use as their form of social media.

    The quote above is from exolasting_jp, they are Korean, but live in Japan and provide the majority of Japanese translations and support for voting and streaming.

    "Japanese Aeries ^_^ This isn't the case in Japan, but in Korea competition through music shows, end of the year awards, CD sales, streaming, and voting decide the success of an artist! Totals come from streaming on paid services like Melon and Genie during a certain time frame. Our numbers aren't very good right now, so we need everyone's strength!

    It's easy to do! EXO-L can do it with coupons/free passes! So won't you please help us create a new record for EXO? Up until now, we've been relying on Korean and Chinese Aeri, but I want Japanese Aeri's help too, I'm counting on you! Please share this with other Aeri <3"

    Part 2.
    To help with streaming and voting, exolasting_jp aka Nabi-san has formed something called the "Japanese Full-Attack Team (日本総攻撃チーム)". Because Nabi-san is Korean, they are able to understand and easily navigate music streaming sites and services to create multiple accounts as well as purchase passes and gather coupons. Nabi-san has also recruited a number of Japanese EXO-L to join the team, giving them Melon and Genie accounts fully loaded with coupons and passes so they can stream. This team has been dubbed the "Proxy Streaming Team (代理スミンチーム)".

    hint. check the twitter hashtag "#総攻撃" if you want to see how Japanese EXO-L are streaming!

    "Nabisonyo-san, it's all because of you giving me this account that I can use melon even at night~~!! I'm so thankful... Thank you thank you so much <33"

    I was even almost recruited into this team! I was having trouble streaming when exoexo2012mie reached out to me and helped me use Genie coupons! (read about my full experience here)

    The Japanese Xiumin fanbase, which also donates flowers/welcome bouquets to be displayed in theatres whenever Xiumin's movies get released in Japan, has also opened up a Genie coupon pool! To get submissions, they've even created these adorable "ads" to get EXO-L to send in their coupon codes!

    Part 3.
    And lastly of course, Japanese EXO-L have been constantly holding group orders for EXO albums. Since albums are an import for Japanese fans, most fanbases have been ordering albums in waves of 1-2 weeks in between to spread out sales (but still within the first 6 weeks!).



    Mini-freezer bought 450 copies of "The War" from Synnara!



    PreciousChan (a Japanese Chanyeol fanbase) is holding a donation event in conjunction with "Spunky Action Baby" (a Korean Chanyeol fansite) to put up an ad for Chanyeol.


    A Japanese Aeri made a fan out of concern for Kyungsoo who looked hurt the previous day (he couldn't lift his arm).
    Main thread

    Concluding, Japanese EXO-L have become a lot more active. It's all thanks to the fanbases and accounts that have popped up with people dedicated to helping Japanese fans stream and vote. A big shout out to every account listed in this article as well as those who I didn't get a chance to name.

    Japanese EXO-L are always with you. WE ARE ONE!
