    I can’t tell what is supposed to be after “This Japanese coverage is only available in Japanese characters for…” for now? for Japan? I’m assuming you guys realize it is showing up in Japanese characters for U.S. users.

    +++++

    For now meaning, wouldn’t it be useful to see Japan in English for English speaking users?
