WaCatta (lit: I Understand) was a short-lived Japanese magazine aimed towards the 30ish male Japanese executive. I believe there were less than six issues total of this monthly magazine published in 1996-1997. This is issue Number 3.

The wonders of the internet and the overwhelming generosity of others was once again proven to me when after several months of fruitless searching for a copy of this issue I finally wrote directly to the publisher in Japan. To my pleasant surprise, I not only received a response from the publisher, but they graciously sent me a complimentary copy of this issue! And this was after they had already ceased publication. Domo Arigato Gozaimasu (Thank You Very Much) to the publisher for their generosity.

But the story doesn't end there. Now I had the issue, but couldn't make heads or tails of the text. A request for help in translation was answered by our fellow Joey fan Seiya, who generously translated the entire article. Sadly, I've lost contact with Seiya, but once again a very, very big Domo Arigato Gozaimasu to you Seiya!
