What is Niconico?
Niconico is a Japanese word that means to laugh or smile while Douga refers to videos or movies.
Niconico is a popular Japanese site that makes its users "niconico" while they watch videos.


The most defining characteristic of Niconico is its commenting system. Comments display over the screen allowing users to interact with one another in real time.
