With the world as we know it constantly evolving and adapting to new changes, the way that we view entertainment has come a long way. If we wanted to go grab our favorite book, we’d have to run a few blocks to the bookstore and line up, praying that our book isn’t out of stock. Or, perhaps you had a favorite magazine to read during class and so to stay up to the trends, you’d need to send in a subscription slip by mail and wait for your stock to arrive. Thankfully all of that is out of the way in this day and age, with modern technology allowing us to purchase books on the go via our smartphones, and subscribe to monthly publications at the click of a button. Our lives have certainly become much easier and our home living space feels a lot more lively, since we don’t have large stacks of books piled up everywhere. So what’s the point here? Well, with the influx of comic publications making their way to smartphones to eliminate all that clutter we mentioned, it has given customers a chance to explore new territory and even discover new Japanese manga (comics) they never heard of. We’d like to introduce to you the latest service in the smartphone comic evolution: Coolmic!
Note*: This is available to smartphone users only and not for PC at this time.
What’s it All About?
Coolmic, which is a portmanteau of the words “Cool” and “Comic”, is a new platform that allows users to explore and discover popular comics at the swipe of a touchscreen, all within your smartphone. All the wonderful Japanese comics that you’ve yearned to read but could never do so is now possible, as you’ll find a cornucopia of content suitable for all ages and adults too! A great feature about Coolmic is that all the comics you read will scroll vertically, making it easier to read on your screen as you’re on the go! So whether you’re into Shoujo or perhaps you’re diving into the Seinen scene for the first time, Coolmic is a great way to expand your catalog without having to expand your bedroom space! After signing up for the first time, you’ll be able to read the first chapter of your chosen comic for absolutely no cost! That means you have a chance to get a sneak peek at what to expect and get a better perspective to make your future purchase decisions easier!
An even better incentive is if you come across a work that’s currently on sale. Well, how that works is the second and third chapters also become free! So it’s a wonderful perk that allows you to create a collection that compliments your tastes, and you don’t need to worry about buying something that you may not enjoy down the road. We’ve often had those moments when we walk into a bookstore and see a brand new comic, wondering if it would be any good but could never get a preview of the content’s flow. Now you can be rest assured that what you’re paying for is something justified and will have long term value!
One Stop Shop for Comics!
A lot of other platforms carry comics but not exclusively like Coolmic, which means that everything that’s on this platform is centered and catered towards comic fans. After signing up, you’ll be able to purchase what’s known as “Tickets,” which will give you full access to the comic you’re interested in, and will stay in your e-bookshelf for as long as you want it! More details on that will be listed via the official website but for now, just know that Coolmic is your one stop shop for all your comic needs and with the list of comics growing daily, there’s enough to go around for everyone. With daily updates taking place to ensure that fresh content is readily available, Coolmic is the platform you’ll want to have in order to stay up-to-date with the latest volumes that drop and never miss a beat. No more waiting in those lousy long lines anymore, everything is right there for you right away!
Convenience in the Palm of Your Hand
One thing that most customers have an issue with is convenience, and of course, the many complicated procedures that you need to go through in order to read just one comic! Well, Coolmic is all about convenience and will save you those unnecessary headaches since everything is organized in a way to keep you engaged, and avoid all the confusing steps. Just tap on the comic you want to read and voila, everything pops up on screen without any fuss.
It’s never easy to stay current, as searching the web or asking around for help can be a bit tiresome. With Coolmic, everything stays current as you’re getting all the latest works straight from the source: Japan. There’s no middle-man that you need to deal with just to read your favorite chapter; all that’s needed is your passion for the comic you desire to read and boom, all problems alleviated. Having your smartphone with you all the time means that you’ll never miss out on upcoming chapters and it’ll be with you no matter where you’re going. So if you find yourself bored in class, not to worry; just open up Coolmic to check out what’s new or maybe purchase the upcoming work that interested you a week ago. Maybe you just got off of work and need something to stimulate your senses, well not to worry because Coolmic will surely cool things down and relieve you of those stressful moments. Or perhaps you’ve just ended a relationship and you need something to mend a broken heart. Well, Coolmic can solve that problem with all the wonderful genres to choose from.
You’ll come across a lot of the latest works that have actually been made into anime such as On a Lustful Night Mingling with a Priest (Souryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni), 25-Year-Old High School Girl, I Wouldn't Do This with a Kid (25-sai no Joshikousei – Kodomo ni wa Oshierarenai Koto Shite Yaru yo), A Predator in a Skirt (Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita.) and My Matchmaking Partner Is My Student and a Troublemaker (Omiai Aite wa Oshiego, Tsuyoki na, Mondaiji.), just to name a few.
Coolmic is certainly a cool way to stay current with all the latest comics that Japan has to offer, allowing you full access to a wide variety of content all at the swipe of a screen. It’s the way of the future for publications since people are starting to purchase fewer physical books and more ebooks to not only save money but also to avoid the headache of getting rid of unwanted material. We certainly hope you take the time to explore and come across comics that entice you, and share your love for the Japanese manga (comic) community.
