We Really Want to Know What You Think.

We are a small collection of brainstormers, tinkerers, and pan-Asian deep thinkers based in Orange County, CA. We are mainly working late at night while all the kids are asleep. Please send us your thoughts, your hopes, your dreams. We want to make the best Japanese app in the history of the world, but we want your help. We can't do it without you. Tell us what you think? Let us know. We'll talk.
