https://www.clip-studio.com/ 

So I see they've bought most of the good Japanese programs it looks like to me...but am I reading the price right?  It looks like most of them only cost around $5-10??  Has anyone bought anything from them?

Not strange Adobe has the same thing from their programs too. Pretty much you purchase a monthly license/serial and you update your program until you pay it off. It's a rental service.This doesn't need to be done if you purchased the program whole.

Clip Studio is also the name of their next illustration software so I see that site having an overhaul towards springtime.

Ok, so where do you buy like retas studio full, and illustudio?  I can't find another site?  Anyone know where it is?

So, there will be an option to purchase the entire program in one go, right? Because if rental's all there is, it'll be extremely difficult for overseas users to get their hands on the product, which would be stupid considering that there are a lot of the potential buyers overseas.

Illuststudio is still being sold on the japense amazon.jp.

Rental requires you to apply for it.. so i am guessing you cant get around it if you dont live in japan.
