Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 11

Thanks, Peter and Josh for the idea of "non-phonetic" kana usage. Just another illustration of never assume something in Japanese is "wrong" just because you haven't seen it before.

I don't think I truly understood how rare Budo was. At least English speakers have a translation. I guess that means that as a Japanese speaker one would have to be content with Saito's partial commentary for AikiNews.

Sort of related to that, I wonder if the demand has reached the point where it would be attractive to publishers to go the extra mile and publish more in a bilingual format. Again AikiNews seems to be at the forefront with their reissue of Saito's work. I wonder if the larger market offsets the additional cost.
