What is the "fan club" in Japan?

If you are fan of Japanese music, movie or drama, why do not you join the fan club of your favorite singer, actress and actor, musician? You may already know what the fan club is.

As the name suggests, fan club is the membership operated by the agency the celebrity belongs to. 

 

The fan club is not just a voluntary Facebook group or so set up by some stranger, it is the "official" organization authorized by the celebrity themselves and the members shall get real good deals (usually!).

 

The fan club usually charges you some yearly fee.  Recently we also a fan club app which costs several dollars every month.

Baby metal says it is not a fanclub. The application process is that first you go to one of their events and buy "the one Big TEE" which comes with the registration ID. You use this ID to register your nickname etc. No membership fee but you need to buy the particular item to be the member every year. Not simple.
