Late last year we told you about COMICO, free online Manga service available on the web, as well as on iOS and Android. At that time we mentioned that NHN PlayArt, company behind the service, had set an initial goal of acquiring 300 000 users by the end of 2013. It appears that the company is well past that goal now, announcing earlier this week that COMICO has surpassed 1 million downloads, requiring only about 100 days since its initial launch to do so. In JAPAN, it is now the top free iOS Books app, and sixth rank Google Play comics app. NHN PlayArt is a subsidiary of Naver Corporation, developing many of its popular casual games, including the recently released Disney Tsumu Tsumu, currently the top free app on both iOS and Android in JAPAN with over 4 million downloads in its first 14 days. So overall it has been a pretty good start to 2014 for the group, which is HOUSE within LINE Corporation headquarters in Tokyos Shibuya district. When COMICO launch, there were 56 different comics available to read, free of charge. The service has since expanded to include 71 comics. And as of this past December, it also allows amateur manga artists to submit comics for consideration, with prize money currently available as part of the contest. After February 17, 30 works will be selected from these submissions, and then reader voting will take place to choose the winner. As for the COMICO app itself, it is interesting to compare it to Japan's other popular Manga app these days, DeNAs Manga Box. That app has seen over 2 million downloads in the span of about a month after its December launch. For readers abroad, youll find no English Interface or translations in COMICO yet, so perhaps Manga Box, which has better titles available in my view, might be a better option. COMICO does have some interesting features though, most notably the fact that its Manga are in color. There is also a pretty interesting crop-and-share feature, which will let you easily select snaps of your Manga to share with friends on social networks or over email. Its good to see more and more services offering mobile Manga solutions. As we pointed out before, LINE also has its own mobile Manga app, LINE Manga, which is doing quite well too. It is currently ranked fifth in the iOS Books category, and second in the Google Play comics category. A few months back we wrote about New York-base Aviary, which at the time was making an effort to establish itself in JAPAN. And now this month, upcoming event will be a big part of that effort, as Aviary's recently announced hackathon, Photo Hack Day, is set to take place on the weekend of February 22 / 23. As we have noted previously, Japan is perhaps the most enthusiastic mobile photography nation, and we have an incredible number of great photo applications that have been produced here.

User experience for both

Comico Art Museum Yufuin features art by Takashi Murakami and photographs of Hiroshi Sugimoto, both artists who have helped to redefine the Japanese perspective on modern art. Murakami's work focuses on linking otaku culture, character iconography, and Japanese Art history. Sugimoto displays his Seascapes series, photographs that are notable for their lack of human subjects. NHN Comico, multinational manga digital distribution company, constructed this minimalist building with renowned Japanese architect, Kengo Kuma. It features natural materials and traditional construction techniques. Galleries are minimal, allowing visitors to focus on space. Natural wood and plenty of outside light warm spacious rooms. Char cedar clads outside, ancient technique that extends the life of exterior wood. Building integrate inside with outside, making full use of the wild and dramatic mountainous landscape surrounding the Museum. Views of Mount Yufu feature prominently. A docent accompanies visitors for an hour-long tour upon arrival before they leave to enjoy collection on their own.
