NicoNico Super Convention 2016
By Creators’ Lounge Japan staff Shiny Andy a.k.a M*A*P-san
I’m a radical Japanese culture introducer from Creators’ Lounge.
I’ll be introducing the newest Japanese pop-cultures (especially in the Animes, Mangas, and Games).
Today is the first day where I’ll introduce “NicoNicoDouga”. Do you know “NicoNicoDouga”? It’s a video sharing service just like the YouTube. But it’s more and more easier to communicate with others. People can join communities on the NicoNicoDouga. For example, if you’re interested in Japanese Animations, you can join its community on NicoNicoDouga and can enjoy watching Animations with the community’s members and can have conversations at the same time. Or if you are interested in playing some games, there’re many live gaming movies.
You might not be interested to read this article because there are already similar web services like YouTube, Facebook, or Twicas. Hmm… exactly. But they’re just online services. I know some YouTubers have their own offline events or have offline meeting among the Facebook groups. But the NicoNicoDouga is different. The NicoNicoDouga makes itself in the real world. You might think “What did you say?”. I understand your feeling. The NicoNicoDouga said “We make almost all NicoNicoDouga contents in the real world”. WTF!? Are you crazy!? I thought “It’s impossible to make an online service offline” at first. That’s why I went to NicoNico Super Convention this year.
God damn it! I doubt my eyes. The NicoNicoDouga has many many kind of videos, communities, and people. We certainly have them all in this convention place.
Japanese animation booths that’s now on air, game playing booths, karaoke singing booths, composing music and live acting booths, dancing booths, industrial commercializing booths, political conversation booths, selling fan-made books and goods booths, showing anime decorated motorcicles booths, etc etc etc…I don’t have enough vocabrary to explain this atomosphere. I only can say CHAOS! If you have a chance to come to Japan, I recommend that you join this eccentric chaos convention.
