I’m on Mixi! こんにちはミクシィの利用者の皆さん。。。


Friendster. Everyone talks about it, everyone’s in it. However, I thought it was rather useless so I never bothered to make an account. Well, until one day my friend (Firdaus IIRC) pestered me or lets say, forced me to death. ‘It won’t do no harm’, or something like that. Obviously not with a grammatically-unsound (or so they say) construct such as the double negative.

So, to spice things up a bit, I decided to make it a pet social experiment. ‘Let’s see how many friends I can get if I just accept friend invitations…’, I thought. That means all my friends on my friendster list asked me to be friends first. Well, except for one, the almighty guitar kamisama, my high school mate, Andre (who can resist not adding him as a friend?). Right now I have 62 friends. Quite popular, I reckon.

But I jumped from my chair, unliterally, hearing a japanesepod101 podcast talking about Mixi, a friendster-like site but in Japanese. Naturally I was interested to join, as I’m currently a Nihongo student.

Mixi’s registration system is invitation-based, much like the beta gmail (right now gmail should be around version 3). They say that it would allow them ‘to create a comfortable place’, or to paraphrase it, ‘to make you suffer finding someone who owns a Mixi account’.

Getting someone to invite wasn’t that hard for me. Well, if you count several days as ‘not that hard’, that is. On the podcast, Peter and the gang told that one only need to ask them. So I visited the forum and appropriately posted on an already-existing ‘I want a Mixi account’ thread. But it’s a sticky thread so it’s always on the top which unfortunately made it less glaring if a new person posted there. n days passed without a reply.

I was sure I would get a reply by just directly mailing the staff or PMing people that gave mixi invites on that thread, but at that point I couldn’t wait longer and wanted a more real-time response. So I visited the place where one can easily encounter a random Nihonjin and chat with them, irc.2ch.net#japanese (and they actually speak English there if you’re still on your kanas)! a_a was kind enough to invite me, and long story short I’m now a Mixi citizen!

For me, the registration process was relatively easy to follow. The menus are also fully readable. However, the personal content, now that’s where the fun begins! I already found someone using a never-before-encountered non-ministry-approved kanji for eel 鰻 (unagi) on his ‘favorite food’ list.

If you need a Mixi invite, and can assure me that you’re not using it solely for the purpose of finding random Japanese girl pics, I’ll gladly confer it.

  22. mintflavored Says:

    I currently live in japan and possess a japanese cell phone with a valid japanese address.

    Unlike most who i believe just want to feed their obsession with all things japan or pick up girls, I’m here studying to become a translator.
    I try to use japanese in person as well as online, but myspace really isn’t good enough especially because it is popular with people who speak or want to learn english.

    I don’t want to post my cell phone address here so if it’s still possible for you to give invitations at all, please let me know by emailing me at chiisu321@gmail.com
    I will then be happy to give u my cell address.

    Thanks either way
    Best Regards,

    hi there, i need a mixi account, im in japan right now and have a mobile and email address in softbank,

    kindly send me an invitation. thanks in advance and more power!


  42. Ember Says:

    I don’t mean to be a bother, but I’d like to request an invitation too? Having been interested in Japanese music for more than a few years now, I’ve been looking around for someone that had an account, but none of my friends ever seemed to have one. So I decided to seriously look around and, before I knew it, I’d come across your blog entry. (That is what this is, is it not?)

    In any case, I’m not interested in looking up pictures of Japanese girls; I’ve just heard that it was a good way to possibly get in touch with artists (much better than Myspace).

    Please excuse my rambling.

  43. John M Says:

    Hi, wondering if I could get an invite? sho_21@hotmail.com

  44. frank Says:

    You must be getting a lot of requests for this, and yes, here comes another one.

    Would you be able to give me an invite to Mixi? I’ve lived in Japan for 6 years and have a phone here too. I’ve heard it’s a good way to improve Japanese in an interesting way, so it would be great if you could help me out.

    thanks so much if you can.

    (unfortunately often confused with sausages by the locals)

  45. frank Says:

    oops, didn’t leave my email



  46. なつみ Says:

  47. littlekitty Says:

    Hi Agro-san,

    I am sorry to be another person who made this request, but I will be truly grateful if you can invite me to mixi.


    I can assure you that being a girl myself, I have no intention of looking for girls’ pics, nor guys’ pics…. I am just very curious what this hype is all about and hopefully I can find myself a nice “home” at mixi.

    Thank you very much for your generosity.

  48. littlekitty Says:

    Maaf ya, ini littlekitty lagi.
    Saya tidak tahu tadi bahwa gmail tidak diperbolehkan untuk dipakai mendaftar di mixi. Maaf.

    Tolong saya di invite di hoshi43215@yahoo.co.jp
    Saya punya keitai email di docomo.ne.jp
    Terimakasih banyak sekali lagi ya.

  67. littlekitty Says:

    Hi people, please stop posting your email address here. Not only that you won’t get any response nor invited into mixi, you will start getting daily spams from scammers. You can email me at my email address in my post above with your email address, and I will invite you into mixi, but sorry I cannot reply to your emails.
    You will need a japanese cell phone number to get accepted by mixi.

  71. julio Says:

    I’ve been trying to get an account for ages nowbut without any success. i would really apreciate if u could send me an invitation. I want to goin the community so i can actually learn some proper japanese, i think its a really cool language.

  72. Roxxie Says:

    I’d love a Mixi invite please – I got a bag of books from my Nan and one fo them is a ‘Simplified Japanese’ (phrase) book. I’ve glanced over Japanese before, due to my love of their culture, and of anime and manga. So I thought ‘Hmm, there’s a Chinese Facebook, is there a Japanese one?’

    I’m hoping to eventually be able to practice my (written to begin with) new language by puzzling my way about. I learn best thrown in the deep end, you know.

    Oh, and yeah, Japanese girls are cute. I’m aware that the culture is very different – on MySpace people pride themselves on having thousands of ‘friends’ who just randomly send a request and get accepted, but on Mixi this is not usually the case, is it? People are more restrained and private?

    Anyhow yes, please, if you could bring yourself to throw me an invite, I would greatly appreciate it. 🙂

    hi ive seen some posts on the net suggesting that u can activate a mixi account without a cell phone email, as long as the address proves u live in Japan.
    my internet provider threw in an email account with the package so as u can see from the address it might just do the trick? think of it as an experiment xD
    if it works ill come back and post for other gaijins to know! 😀

    p.s. n if i wanted to check out japanese girls id just go to the street so im really not into mixi for that xD

  137. queen of delhi Says:

    First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your mind prior
    to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my
    thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
