SHORT STORY - NINE LIVES (link in description) by Akimiya SHORT STORY - NINE LIVES (link in description) by Akimiya
Hi guys! I posted a short comic over at my tumblr a few days ago. Since DA doesn't allow multi-image uploads, you can read it by clicking here

Alternatively, you can help support me and my work by purchasing a higher res digital copy from gumroad for $1

Thank you so much as always! (^O^)/

Just found this beautiful little comic today on tumblr.
I ended up crying at the end and trying to make my own black little kitty let me cuddle her, but she just kept on going 'nu, stupid human, let me go play, stupid human.'
;_;
Thanks for making this.
Is so beautiful.

My feeeeeeeels, oh god. The 8th life looks exactly like my cat who passed in September. :(

If you listen to this song with it, it's even worse!: Kuroneko by Akagami

[For the lazy:

Kuroneko
("Black Cat")

How did I not notice this?
But even when I swore that it doesn't matter,
I go running towards you still,
when that voice and scent draw near.

When I was looking at the same stars,
a story was told in the same words.
If you were only next to me,
I felt that I could be a yawning kitten who is loved.

Please, don't pass by me!
I'm right here!
I was born just for the sake of meeting you.
In the cosmos, a wishing star streamed past...
I'm running to reach you, as your shadow starts to grow distant.
I cry out as much as my voice allows, in hopes it carries to you.
Please, I want you to turn around, this would be a miracle.

I was watching from within the forest every day,
back shaking in sorrow.
As time passed, I forgot everything about you,
Far beyond the memory I've had of the world where I was,
I was really wishing though, so-

I beg you not to pass by me; I'm right here.
I was born just for the sake of meeting you.
In the cosmos, a wishing star streamed past...

I ran and chased after you, soon exhausting myself,
and my foot got tangled. I cried and yowled without anything like tears,
It's a miracle that it looked like your disappearing silhouette knew.

Wah?! You're the one who made it?!
I saw it on 9gag this afternoon!

Anyway! The story was rather sad in some parts and the ending was very touching!
The manga is so clean and woderfully inked!

Keep up the good work!
