2. Scratch and win!
Find something like a coin or use your fingernail to scratch off the silver material and reveal your unique code.
3. Time to use your code
Now that you found your code it’s time to redeem it. Head over to The ONE website to create your account.
4. Creating my account
Click on the grey “New Registration” (新規登録) button at the bottom of the page.
5. Entering my information
- The unique registration code that you found in Step 2
- Your email address (enter carefully so that you don’t run into problems later on)
- Click the “Accept Terms” button
You will see the following screen advising that an email has been sent.
When it arrives simply click on the provided hyperlink and you will be directed to the next screen. If you didn’t enter your address correctly in Step 5 you could be in trouble here. Make sure to check your Junk folder.
6. Choose your METAL name
This is where you choose your METAL name.
If you have a fairly common name you may find that it is already taken and you are prompted to choose an alternative with some numbers after it. I would suggest using some unconventional spelling of your name or maybe a romaji version, as I did.
Your metal name must be written in all caps. Don’t bother writing “-metal” as this is added automatically. You will need to type the whole thing when you come to log-in later or if you want to enter your details at the Asmart site.
You also need to enter a password and then enter it again to confirm in the second box.
Write your full name in the next box and then select where you live from the drop-down menu. If you are not from Japan then your only choice is “Other than Japan”, in which case you can then write your country in the following box.
To enter your date of birth make sure that you write it in SI format – yyyymmdd – without spaces.
Finally select your gender and click the “Confirmation” button.
Assuming that you filled in everything correctly and that your chosen Metal name is not already taken you will find yourself at the next screen, which asks you to confirm that all of your details are correct.
Click the “Modification” button if you need to change anything, otherwise clock the “Sign up” button.
