Registering a Sega ID

Before you begin it is highly recommended to install a language translation Addon or Extension for your web browser. This will make the registration process much easier.

1. Start by going to the Sega Registration Page. Put your e-mail in the text box and click the blue button to the right of the text box. Your browser should then take you to a page in Japanese which says "An e-mail has been sent your e-mail address. Please click the link to continue the signup process."

2. After clicking on the link in the auto-generated email from Sega you will be directed to a form that requires you fill out the information needed to create an account. If you have a language translation Addon or Extension for your web browser it should be in English. The picture below also clarifies what information is required for a Sega account.

3. At the end of the account creation form you will have to pass a Japanese Captcha. This is one of the trickier parts on the journey to playing Phantasy Star Online 2. I have created several accounts for friends and have never been successful with this on the first try. There are a couple resources that are helpful when attempting to pass the Japanese Captcha; Learn Japanese Lessons Hiragana alphabet and Google Translate. Either way I suggest you copy/paste the Japanese Characters into a separate document such as Notes for Mac or Notepad for PC. Once you have all five characters copy/paste all characters into the Captcha field. Take note that the captcha has not only be the correct characters, but completed in a certain amount of time ot you may get an error for taking to long

If and when you are successful you will be directed to a page that loos like the image below.
