We tried the app. Some portions of it were in Japanese, although you can choose to receive your mnemonics in English. After the user is provided with a passphrase, the app asks you to set a password. You can add several other cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin. It is possible to send and receive Bitcoin.
This app is self-custodial. However, upon attempting to verify this code, we got the following:

Do your own research
In addition to reading our analysis, it is important to do your own checks. Before transferring any bitcoin to your wallet, look up reviews for the wallet you want to use. They should be easy to find. If they aren't, that itself is a reason to be extra careful.
