It’s been a long time since we’ve done a oneshot. I feel like all we’ve been doing for the past year is “Sabaku no Harem”. Haha! We don’t do endless shoujo, so I imagine at some point we’ll move on from “Sabaku no Harem” or it’ll get licensed. I prefer oneshots and short series over long ones. I like Sabaku, but I hate that I’ve saddle myself and the group with it. I thought that since it was in Lala DX, it wouldn’t run any longer than 24 chapters. When it moved to Lala, I got sad because I knew there’s no way this group will follow a series for more than 5 years. Some of these series run for 10+ years T_T. Akagami is still going and it started in 2006. “Skip Beat” has been running since 2002 and may be older than a good percentage of readers of this blog. But I digress…
Moving on, this is a oneshot that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. It’s in a bundle of about 15 oneshots that we been working on for the past two years. I like this oneshot because on the surface it’s cute and fluffy, but when you really think about it, it’s very messed up. I’ll talk more about it in the comments. Please tell me what you think of this oneshot in the comments.
And now on to the release!

Thank you for this! Ahh, I’m so sad for Nyaa. To be the last resort when all else fail. I didn’t like her way of thinking. Not during the start and even at the end. But I still think it’s an interesting read. 🙂
Like I said, it’s cute on the surface but it’s really a disturbing oneshot. Haha! I don’t think Sachiko learned anything at the end of this story.
True. I’d like to see how she would react once Nyaa is gone since cats have less life span than humans.
I didn’t actually take her words as Nyaa being the last resort but rather that even if she doesn’t succeed in love she’s not lonely anymore because Nyaa is waiting for her at home. It’s not like she’s interested in him as a romantic partner but rather a companion since even though he has a human form, he’s still a cat. She does seem to be solving her issue by replacing the manager with Nyaa rather than becoming stronger but I think that’s fair enough since a lot of people combat loneliness by getting a pet. Might not be the most stable solution but she has time to grow up.
Thank you for your lovely work, as always. I missed seeing oneshots from this group, so this was a nice surprise! 🙂
Interesting, but I really don’t like the main character. Hard explain without posting spoilers, but she is so selfish. I guess she is only about 19 (ish?), but still, have some respect for others. Good story, but I want to smack her.
Thank you very much for all your work to share, I’m happy to read!!
As always, thank you for your work! You always pick very interesting series!
