This is such a powerful piece. I love how it chronicles the relationship between Lilly and Akira and the struggles they endured together. I'm glad I found your works though Thanatos02's Akira Route. Thanks so much!
Found Emi to be my second favorite, because it was well written and she's just a lovable person. Hanako's would be my third; thought the way they handled her ending (minus the controversial sex scene) was very well done. Rin's the fourth and poor Shizune coming in last, which is a shame since I really did like her as a character.
Overall loved the game so much, I replayed Lilly's route and am sad that it's come to an end. Also sad there wasn't more Akira <.<
First Panel: The holding hands makes my heart melt and Akira with kind of long hair is cute. Second Panel: I love Akira's face here and the determined look. Someone just messed with the wrong Catholic schoolgirl. Third Panel: Probably my favorite. It took me a second to see what Akira was doing, I thought she was feeling Lilly's face in imitation, but sharing the headphone is adorable and the look of surprise on Lilly's face is absolutely priceless. Fourth Panel: Very touching to see Lilly waiting up for Akira with dinner ready, still smiling even if she is late. I bet Lilly spent a lot of nights doing that just so Akira would have a nice meal and a welcome home. I want to know more about the lives the two of them shared growing up in a house with just the two of them, how they coped and dealt with their family situation. Fifth: M-my heart. Damn.
Really wonderful. I know these multi panel images are tough to do, but the work you put into them shows and you manage to tell a whole story without even saying a word. Maybe it's just the way I see things, but there's a whole tale being told here and we're getting the chance to see snapshots of it through your art. Like rtil said, one of the drinking would be cool as the jump between the dinner panel and the boarding pass seems to be a larger gasp of time than the others. I also could have expected either Lilly introducing Akira to Hanako or maybe Akira meeting Hisao at the Shanghai, maybe even from Akira's perspective during the intro movie where she walks away from the pair waving. Wonderful picture and you made me smile and feel sad. Thank you for picking this one up, it was a fantastic request to do.
Silent comics are the best. It's very interesting to try and pick the scene and the exact moment, so that the meaning of the panel is clear. I wanted this to be focused solely on Lilly and Akira, no other characters. And I wanted it to be about their time before Yamaku. So, on second thought, the scene with them drinking wouldn't fit - we all know when Akira decided to introduce her sister to alcoholism. It was fun to draw. I like interesting requests. That's a very generous comment, thank you!
Ah, if that was your motivation, then I understand why you kept the scenes to their early life. My only other suggestion was to have a scene of Lilly moving to Yamaku, but again, you went with more distant memories of the two of them and their lives growing up. Good choice.
Seriously, outstanding little piece. Very cute, poignant, and serves to highlight that these two sisters truly care about each other. Bravo! Look forward to seeing it colored, if that's your intentions!
