;AAAA; Wow...poor Inori/
omg T^T, this comic is so cool
this just got intense and all!....me likey~ ;3
Kae, wake up and be there for your beloved! He really needs you now!
Wow... poor Inori.
And Kae.. Y U NO WAKE UP?! I kinda envy him.. I wish I could sleep that deep, when I'm ill. o.O
LOL Nose bleed. The last panel is so cute.
A'ight Kae spill the beans. >:C
Wow, that must've been pretty intense to make him have a nose bleed xD
Aaw but your art is so powerful, I love the last panel ; A ; he looks so manly yet vulnerable <3
:o oh snap!
oh wow that last picture is gorgeous
@Shylia: I think its more like he's unconscious from a high fever rather then asleep...but I agree with you! Wish I slept that good when sick..
My sympathy headache came back. Thank god I didn't sympathy nosebleed too... You draw the emotions a little too well you know?
The storyline and art is so interesting! Love how you depict the emotions the characters are feeling. My heart went out to Inori... poor guy.
the bloodynose sorta reminded me of the plot in the movie "the BOX " XD
I really love Inori so it's hard for me to see him in such immense pain..I hope the flashbacks help him to remember other parts of his past so that his suffering is not in vain..This may sound strange but..You draw pain really beautifully..You capture so much emotion with the way you drew Inori's physical reaction to the sudden revelations of his past..From his bleeding nose to his hunched figure and clenched hands..You depict Inori's struggle perfectly..I can't wait to see what happens next! ^^
this comic is perfect!
I'm loving the story, and the features of the design are wonderful!
I'm crazy for the next chapters!
continue with the wonderful work!
Omg, this is so good. The intensity of emotions + the art = wow effect!
@Youkai-Meimi: I'm totally aware of the fact that he must be unconscious. :D But still .. xD
@Shylia: Well...too be fair, Kae's kinda been trying to sleep in gutters on the street...so a warm bed is probably working wonders. ^^
I wanted to jokingly say that Inori must have seem something particularly sexy in his flashback to induce that nosebleed....but I just feel so bad he's being tormented!
Inori had the opposite of an orgasm!
gotta love that shadowing.
The simplicity of the layout and the detail imbue this page with so much power and intensity! I look forward to the next page.
This is so gorgeous! I await the next part, completely hooked! <3 Thanks so much for sharing this!
Amazing English none-the-less.
I can't rave enough about how beautiful your art is. It's very inspirational. :)
Also, despite never having read the prologue, I still find this story to be a nice stand-alone.
Keep doing what you're doing. A great work. :)
@xNillx: This. Oh my goodness, this.
Originally, back when I started reading this comic godknowshowlongago, I came for the art. It didn't take me very long to fall in love with the story and the characters and for me to stick around for them, too. They are portrayed so well and so realistically that when they smile I can't help but smile with them, and when they look to be in such pain as Inori is now, I hurt too. This comic is so well done in every aspect, I just... I do not have words =')
THAT, sweetheart, was a flashback. Extra hugs for you.
OMG!!! I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! Please keep it up!!! <3
I really think this is hands down one of the best comics I've ever read... like including professional ones! <3 I really applaud your epicness and all the work that I know goes into making this so amazing! I literary can NOT wait to read more! :)
I still wanna know what he remembered! Grrrr
First I want to say something to all of you wonderful people who have been commenting all along. I'm really really thankful to all of you and I read each and every of your comments. In fact most of the time they make my days which aren't especially bright lately as I'm fighting against one illness after another ever since the beginning of February. First was a very harsh cold which I didn't really cure off well, because I tend to not stop working, so it took me about four weeks for it to tone down. And while it was lessening I suddenly had a strange ache in my chest. First I thought nothing of ot because I had been coughing a lot. But when it didn't fade when the coughing lessened I went to the doctor's again - don't worry it's nothing serious. I just strained a muscle between the 9th and 10th rib |D; while coughing of course. And of course if was easily treatable but I ran around with it about three weeks in total (overlapping with the cold). Now with the cold as good as gone and the muscle being all soothed by the right medication I went to the bookfair in Leipzig / Germany (it's the biggest event for comicartists here in Germany, especially if you're drawing manga-style, so I HAD to go).
When I came back so did the coughing. But it's not the one from before but seems to be something else entirely as I got myself a very lively and nocturnal fever in addition. I (of course, because I'm stupid as hell) went to work last frieday in spite of the coughing fits and just barely made it home that evening to realize my body temperature was at 38,8°C. (Yay.)
That kind of shocked me awake.
I never have fever.
There have been just two occasions in my whole life where I had a somewhat raised temperature and both times were rather bad illnesses.
So something must be friggin' wrong with me. I'll be seeing the doctor again tomorrow morning and best get him to transfer me to a lung specialist, because every year my "cold" problems are getting worse or longer... or both.
Right now the constant state of being ill is taking away all my concentration and to be honest with you all after this page I have nothing in stock. (I'm behing with the deadline for my publishing project as well ._. it's not just TEN.)
I will upload the chapter cover for the 6th chapter the night from thuesday to wednesday, as always and I already have the extact beginning of the next chapter in my mind, but it's not even in layout yet.
Until now I wouldn't have said anything about it and tried to crunch out some pages so none of you would realize that something's up. But as thing's are standing right now I'm really afraid what the doc will say tomorrow.
I can't yet say what will happen the night from the 3rd to 4th April (funny thing, the 3rd even is my birthday... what a present...). So I won't say there won't be pages for a while, because there might be and I don't want you to panic or even just go away. ;_;
I just want you to know so you... dunno... maybe you're not too disappointed if there's one or two weeks no pages before the 6th chapter really begins.
._. I'll make sure to keep you all updated.
Now to the comments, because that was why I actually wrote all that stuff, to say that I'm sorry for not answering all your wonderful comments:
@A v e r y
(*≧▽≦) Thank you very much!
@bunny girl >:3
Yes plz XD
Oh would Kae scold himself if he knew he hadn't been "there" for Inori that moment.
I wish so too... but actually he's somewhere between sleep and out cold from the illness and the meds.
XD I don't know if "cute" is the right word.
Scary and sooo irritating. òwo
For that he'd have to be awake. ;)
Thank you! ;^;
Actually you could really get a nosebleed from this / something like this. I mean, his blood pressure must be under the roof, so...
^v^ Thank you! (You don't want to see the layout. It looks so stupid XD)
You're absolutely right. And the meds surely have something to do with it as well. ^^
Ouh Ówo.... sorry, I guess?
m(_ _)m Thank you very very much!
Really...? What kind of movie ist ..?
Not really. XD
#;w;# Thank you nill! You always have such wonderful words for them.
Thank you very very much!
#;3;# Thank you!
That didn't even cross my mind, but that's a funny idea. (Something worth a yonkoma or something like that. XD)
/);A;/) There's an opposite?
#;w;# Thank you so much!
m(_ _)m Thank you for reading this!
N-no... just the shock of sudden backflashes he didn't have before.
;) I vote for high blood pressure due to his sudden flashbacks.
Thank you very much!
I'm reading rather much stuff and watch series in English, so I guess that's where the rather good English comes from. °w° nott efri dschörman spieks laik oha fhedderal cenccellar. Sorry, I overdid it. *g* Most of the time I'm ashamed of how bad the English is that official people from Germany speak. You see, I'm not alone... though there are as many kids who seem to have slept through their English classes all four years. >_> (English is a compulsory subject in all German schools for at least four years.)
... you know ...
that comment just made me cry a little.
Because... you see... everytime I was asked what I want to achieve with my comics or what I want to be able to do one day I always said "I want to be able to draw comics that make my readers cry, when the characters cry, and smile, when the characters are happy - just like the works that made me cry and smile."
So ;__; that just made me incredibly happy.
Thank you very much!
Hugs from Kae would be best. I'll see what I can do about that.
m(_ _)m I will! Thank you!
#;w;# T-thank you very much!
Sh~ patience young padawan.

I'll pray for your health and do try, no matter what, to have a wonderfully splendid day on the 3rd. Because birthdays are very special days.

@Soen Kai: No need to apologize. I totally know how you feel.. I haven't been cured from my illness since January. And yay I went to the bookfair in Leipzig as well and I acutually went there having a fever and shit, but you are right, if you live in Germany you just HAD to go there.. no matter what. :D
Get well soon! :)
@Soen Kai: oh my goshness ;o; I'm so sorry to hear you are not doing well, I hope that what ever is wrong with your health can be fixed in no time, not just so we can have more of TEN :3 but cuz it SUCKS ass to be sick!! So feel better soon, and no hurry I won't leave ;)
* O *
Awww, poor Inori..... He looks so upsed and confused, with all those partial memories....
Gute Besserung!! Ich hoffe, du bist bald wieder fit!
Erhol dich gut und wenn es dir wieder besser geht, kannst du ja in Ruhe weiterzeichnen ^^
@Soen Kai: OH! You poor thing:(
I'm the same as you - I had a fever only a few times in all my life:/ I had all the illnesses which are strongly connected with fever with 36,0-36,6 temperature. And with 37 I'm a dead body sleeping 24h a day... But lately I've been ill more than 10 times in one year 0__o and with a fever! I couldn't believed it.. but last autumn/winter after taking cod-liver oil every day I'm much more stronger! I only had a cold for a week. Try taking cod-liver oil to improve your immune system. I hope you'll get better soon. And please, REST! <3
So if he remembers it he dies?
@Soen Kai: Thank you! I joined to be a registered commenter from now on. <3
Hope you feel better soon!
I'll be back to leave more get well comments until you heal >.<
@Soen Kai: Oh man, I was getting so frustrated because I did not notice this information, not because there was no new page, but because I was so worried about you (and I don't even know you!). So, hope you'll be getting better, I'm having my fingers crossed for your health! And am sending lots of love to you!
when does this update?
I hope you start feeling better! I love this comic so much but I can wait till you get better!
Thanks for keeping us updated on how you're doing.
Take your time. Nobody likes a sick artist/author. Get well soon. Don't feel guilty, like you're leaving your audience hanging - we just want you well.
*gives you a nice hot cup of tea* If you don't like tea then that's your fault. XD
I have to say that I stumbled upon this comic from another I read and was instantly hooked! I really love it. Gotta say I cried a few times myself when the characters cried, couldn't help it! that and your art style is amazing. Hope that helps make you feel a little better! ^^
i...i...this page brought out all the feels. stunning comic visually, super interesting story! *w* when i'm reading it i think my face may just look like kae's face when he's covertly watching inori. as in, sparkly and adoring to an almost creepy degree.
Alright Kae. Time to spill the beans. Oh wait, perhaps Inori would find out before Kae awakens?!
Orgasm!!! I want more!!!
I love your comic soo much!
Gah. Yes, please just sleep while I drool all over your arm xD
Love this. Eheheheheee I hate waiting for updates DX
I'm so sucked in by the art and story <3
I MUST HAVE MORE!!!!! >:U
@Lizzie-chan: Ugh, we all do T^T
I didn't read the previous comments but now that I know you're sick...I hope you feel better! I'll be hoping and praying for your health >.< (however much that means). Gambatte!
