Company Info A new media platform for the internet age.

Thanks to technological innovation and the spread of the internet, anyone can create and publish a "work of art".
And now anyone can touch them.

The barriers between creator and recipient have been broken down, and the "work" has become the star of the show.

However, conventional media such as TV broadcasts and paper-based media, while having a complete system, are very limited in the way they can be received.

Is it possible to create a system that allows people to deliver and interact with art more freely?

To answer this question, we are an attempt to find a new way of doing "works".

We are a platform for publishing comics on the internet.

We make it possible to publish comics as e-books.
The ebook version can be viewed in a browser or on an ebook reader.
Creators can easily create and deliver their work, and recipients can easily access a wealth of work.
We want to make your everyday life more convenient, affordable and enjoyable through the internet.
We want to show people the new ways of enjoying books, which are now possible only with the digitisation of books.
Working Hours 10:00 --19:00 * There is a staggered commuting system
Break time 1 hour
