    • You can skip adding payment methods and sync options.
    • You may need to add a phone number in the future, but the same phone number as your original Google account should still be okay.
    • If you plan on making purchases in any app, such as MikuColle itself, you'll need to remove and re-add your account. More information at the Shop page.
  • Switch to the newly created account
  • Search for either "mikucolle" or "ミクコレ" without the quotation marks
  • Install the game
    • You don't need to open the app while still using the VPN.
