Chapter 15 – Fukumaru & the Cat Toy
Chapter 15 of “Gentleman & Cat”, by Umi Sakurai. Translation and scanlation editing by me. You can read the original on the author’s Twitter, and it’s also being published in Japan! If you enjoy this manga, please support the official release if possible. =)
Ojisama to Neko: “The Things We Love”
(Continued in “Pouring Tears”)
It took me so long to translate these past two installments because I was too busy CRYING OVER THEM.Really, though, as sensitive as I am and how deeply I feel things, emotions are a private thing to me and it’s rare that a piece of print media can bring me to actual, real-life tears. Ojisama to Neko has finally done it. This particular comic hits awfully hard, especially when you know how it feels to suffer a serious loss. Sakurai-sensei draws it very gracefully.
Ojisama to Neko: “Pouring Tears”
(Continuation of “The Things We Love”)
Remember what I said about crying-but-not-actually-crying? I guess I’m more like Ojisama than I realized. But I think Fukumaru is the one teaching the real lesson here- even if you’re not sure whether you’ll succeed at something, always try anyway. Your effort will make a world of difference. I think Ojisama would agree with that.
the sheer intensity of this dude’s love for his cat could melt ice
So that feels-laden comic about the “ugly” cat getting adopted by the older gentleman is called Ojisama to Neko. As far as I can tell, Ojisama to Neko is an ongoing online comic that’s mostly posted to the artist’s twitter account, @sakurai_umi_. You can even see the original of the adoption comic.
A physical manga is going to be released on February 22nd, which is Cat Day in Japan. Until then (and until we get a translated version) you can see lots more of them here.
Cat ownership, more like idiot management.
