    Unfortunately all of their publications all appear to be in Japanese. The app itself seems stable enough and easy to use.

      Yep - I was buying their Iaido toranomaki magazines through the Japanese itunes store - much easier now it is in the Aussie one so can pay in dollars.... toranomaki is excellent for the instructional photo sets even if you cannot read Japanese.

        Is there any indication that the videos from the issues where DVDs are included will be part of the iTunes download?

        Do you know if you can copy and paste the text from the magazine so you can at least get a rough "Google translate" translation?

          The videos are NOT included.
          No you cannot copy/paste text.
