IMPORTANT: It will no longer be possible to transfer accounts through transfer IDs and passcodes as well as Google+/Game Center after an update on May.
Lost your account in SIF JP and have no idea what to do? Fret not! We will try to help you with that!
NOTE: If you've only just started playing and have barely made any progress, I suggest you just begin a new game. This will be more trouble than it's worth.
Q: HELP! I lost my account! How do I get it back?
A: If you do not have any access to your transfer passcode, then you will have to e-mail kLab so that they would issue you a new transfer passcode.
Q: Okay, so what's kLab's mail address?
Q: Does this mail have to be in Japanese?
Q: What can I write for the topic?
A: Something simple like スクフェスアカウントリカバリー or スクフェスアカウントの復旧 will do.
Q: How do I start off with the message?
A: Of course, you will have to state your reason for mailing them. Since we're trying to get an SIF account back, then starting with maybe something like this will do:
こんにちは。 すみませんけど、私のスクフェスアカウントを回復するお手伝いをお願いすることができますか？ <Please also state why or how you lost your account here> 以下、アカウント情報の一部を書きました。
Good day. Excuse me, could you help me with recovering my SIF account? <Please also state why or how you lost your account here> I've written some information about my account below.
Q: Got my intro written already! What do I write next?
A: You'll have to gather as much information as you can about your account. Here are some information kLab asks for whenever someone mails them about account retrieval.

NOTE: kLab sometimes asks for more information or asks the same questions. Please try to answer all of them and don't leave anything blank.
NOTE 2: All items from kLab's reply marked with〈必須〉are required items.
NOTE 3: As kLab sometimes asks for the same information on their mails, please take time to Find (Ctrl+F) and copy-paste the questions to see if they exist within this page already before asking us to translate stuff for you.
Q: HELP! I do not remember/have some of the information! What do I write?
A: If the answer is "unknown", write 「不明」. If the answer is "none", write 「なし」. If the answer is "no", write 「いいえ」.
Q: Done writing the body of the message! What now?
A: Close off your message with something like 本当にありがとうございます！to express your gratitude for them. It makes people very happy when they feel that their work is appreciated.
Q: Okay, done. Do I send it now?
Q: Sent! What do I do now?
A: We wait. kLab replies usually after some time, so long as you sent it on a working day. In most cases, kLab's reply contain more inquiries. After they tell you that they'll be working on it, it would take days to weeks to months, depending on how accurate you information is, for them to send you the mail with the new transfer passcode or a mail that tells you about an authentication code.
Q: I received an email with something about an "authentication code" 「認証コード」. What do I do now?
A: From the person who posted this thread, we learned that kLab now sends authentication codes in order to further confirm that you are the owner of that account.
From the thread linked above, it was known that you will receive an authentication code after opening the game and will be asked to input the information in-game as well. These are: the authentication code itself, and the date you received this code (format: YYYY年MM月DD日).
After doing this, you are supposed to reply to kLab's email stating the authentication code you were given, the date you received this, and please also attach screenshots as much as possible. After kLab receives the email, they will send you a new mail that contains your new transfer passcode.
NOTE: This code only appears ONCE after opening the game the first time you receive this email, so please immediately take note of it.
"What a hassle! It would have been a lot easier if I had saved my passcode somewhere before!"
I agree. Account recovery is tiring, yes. I've experienced the same, twice. But fortunately, I was able to provide information that was accurate enough and got my account after just a week.
UPDATE: It will no longer be possible to transfer via this option after an update on May. You will need to register for SIF ID to be able to do so. To find out how, follow this link.
To prevent going through the same hardships, we should take precautionary measures:
Link your SIF JP account to your Google+ account That way, whenever you need to transfer devices, just log in your Google account and, voila! You've just transferred your account! (Tried and tested) Please note that you will still need to use transfer passcodes when transferring through devices with different OS. (i.e. Android → iOS and vice versa) Issue a transfer passcode and store it somewhere where you can access it anytime and not lose it due to random circumstances Where should you store it so you won't lose it? Cloud storage. I have mine saved on my Google drive. Don't worry, passcodes last for a whole year before you'd have to issue another one. (Be careful not to disclose your passcode publicly though!) Issue another one immediately after you use one A passcode can only be used once, so when you use it this time, you won't be able to use it again and you will lose your account. (Happened to me, btw)
