We received many questions about the free distribution event and the release of the application, so we compiled them in an FAQ section below. Please read on!

Q: How can I participate the free distribution event?

A: The hashtag is simple the topic of the week. For example, when the hashtag is #TweetYourWaifuHusbandoGetOtakuCoin, you should tweet something like,

“Eriri Spencer Sawamura #TweetYourWaifuHusbandoGetOtakuCoin

As long as we can see your favorite character’s name in the tweet (you can add any other comments for sure!), plus the hashtag, then it will be qualified!

Q: Can I participate in the event via Facebook?
