Useful, but needs Google translate!

This app is really cool, and worth the $5/month subscription to stay up to date with all the shogi professional games.

But one thing that is missing is a Google translate option to automatically translate the commentary to English or other languages, like on the Japanese Shogi Association website.

The biggest thing missing as an American who's into shogi isn't how to navigate the app, it's that most information is presented in Japanese well beyond my ability.

Definitely worth the money

It’s the only easily accessible way I know of to watch Shogi games. Unfortunately, I can’t read Japanese so I’m not able to understand the comments for the moves which is a bummer but it’s still nice to watch how the professionals play!

Just Needs One More Thing

Great App. If you could provide Game Commentary in English, I would GLADLY pay A LOT more money for the monthly subscription. AND, you would precipitate an avalanche of Shogi interest in the West. Guaranteed!
