Not much content app buggy and crashes

I want to watch variety and other fun shows but this has almost exclusively dorama and seems to be going after the K-POP and Kdrama viewers out there but why? That audience speaks Korean and won’t come here. It would be better to have many categories of shows like variety or documentaries. I used to get Nhk on demand before they blocked kaigai with VPN and that was much better content. Even the dramas were better. Also content seems to disappear. In the ad for this app the picture of familiar Massan appears but in the app it was nowhere. I never finished watching it so I was disappointed. The price is fair but they need more shows and less bugs. The Apple TV app works but the iPhone doesn’t. When will I finally be able to watch Japanese shows in America legally? There is a market for sure but nobody seems to be able to bring it about. I will stay a subscriber because I’m desperate for content. Hoping someone shakes up this market

Limited but pretty good content

*Jan-2021 update**
Okay, I’ve been using the service for over 6 months and am very satisfied . New contents are added weekly and you usually have a year to watch it. Be sure to check that you have enough time to finish to avoid disappointments. Shows with subtitles are very limited so be aware. If that’s not an issue you can check their website to see what shows are on and see if it’s worth it. Recent viewings i’ve enjoyed are ノーサイドゲーム, 陸王, 俺の話は長い, 同期のサクラ this one i just finished, very good... “I have a dream ..” 👍 and slowly watching through episodes of ひよっこ, a must see for fans of Arimura Kasumi. Hoping they have new taiga and asadora additions in the future.

***original review***Oct-2020
Some iOS UI issues (landscape browsing?, fast fwd/rev bug) but five stars for jdrama selections. Content is limited but the ones available are pretty good. Could be a couple $ cheaper or maybe offer a yearly subscription discount? I’ve been able to binge watch asadora, taiga, jdrama, with my favorite actor/actresses that I’ve haven’t been able to watch being in the US. Looking forward to both the relatively newer (<3 years) and older/classic hit jdramas.

Great concept, extremely limited content

I subscribe to TV Japan through cable and am really hoping that I can finally get rid of cable and go HD and digital with this new product. However there is barely anything available, no current season dorama or variety show, not even the popular NHK documentaries or kids programming that your would expect from a company that is affiliated (or owned?) by NHK. The app itself is fine, and appreciate the future enhancements in Apple TV and Roku compatibility (though chromecast would be even better), but unless there’s actual content, this is not even worthy as a free app, never mind $10 monthly subscription fee. Deleting until they 100x their content with in season content.
