Manga research

What do people find interesting in manga and where are they interested in it?We think that by scientifically analyzing the fun of manga and creating a database of it, we can make use of it in creating works.Furthermore, I think that if we can provide a recommendation system that introduces works that suit the tastes of our readers, it will lead to the revitalization of the manga industry.

We will continue to open up the future of manga by scientifically researching and analyzing the fun of manga and providing encounters with really interesting manga.

* A part of the research content will be released at a later date.

Overview

The emotion that manga brings can be quantified.

Based on this hypothesis, Coamix is ​​conducting research on biological reactions such as human emotions (brain activity) together with the University of Tokyo and the University of Electro-Communications.

In-house data scientists are also playing a central role in promoting research and development of recommendation systems using AI.

In order to prevent the work of talented manga artists from being buried, advanced efforts are being made to realize ideal encounters with readers who seek the work.

I want to choose a work that suits my taste from among many works.
However, the recommendations from the purchase history rarely show the works of new MANGAKA.
Perhaps the work that could have become a masterpiece for someone was buried without encountering the reader.
By studying a person's tastes and brain, if we can provide a work that is perfect for that person, we will be happy not only for the reader but also for the painter.I am conducting research to help with that.
