Frequently asked questions
Updated on June 15, 2013
PLEASE READ THE FAQ THOROUGHLY, EVEN IF YOU HAVE READ IT BEFORE. I receive these questions a lot, so if your question is on this page, I will not answer.
Q.) Are you really Kyary?
A.) No. I am not affiliated with Kyary, her company, her staff, or her international staff in any way. Messages meant for Kyary will not be forwarded to her, and will not be replied to unless sent through the fan mail function on Tumblr. Please read this post if you want to send Kyary a message.
Q.) I’d like to translate your English translations into my language. Is that okay?
A.) If you want to translate my translations into another language, you must credit me in every post by including a link or reblogging directly from me! You also must let me know so that I can include links to your Tumblr on kyarychan to share with other international fans. If you fail to do these things, I will lock all affected content/this entire blog until you do so.
Q.) How can I contact Kyary?
A.) Read my announcement here.
Q.) Does Kyary speak English?
A.) Kyary can only speak Japanese. However, like most Japanese people she’s probably taken a few English classes and might be able to understand/speak a very small amount.
Q.) Will there be a music video for XXX? Will Kyary ever come to XXX? When will Kyary release a new single/album/music video? Why doesn’t Kyary ever perform XXX?
A.) I am not a member of Kyary’s staff and cannot confirm anything about her schedule, her releases, or any other information about her activities as an artist other than what has already been published on this blog.
Q.) Can you please translate XXX soon?
A.) I have a life outside this blog and only translate as fast as I have time for. Please be patient.
Q.) Your ask box doesn’t work for me. How should I send you a message?
A.) If my ask box doesn’t work, try sending me a message here or refreshing the page. If that doesn’t work, you can use my submission page, but please let me know that my ask box isn’t working for you.
Q.) Does XXX ship internationally? Where can I buy XXX?
A.) Clothes whose brands and item name have been identified will be posted on kyarychan under the “Kyary’s Fashion” tag with links, if available. Please check there before sending in a message asking to find something. Most Japanese stores do NOT ship internationally, nor do they accept non-Japanese methods of payment. To purchase an item on a Japanese store, you must use a shipping service based in Japan or have someone send it to you unless they specifically state that they ship abroad.
