The author writes:

I'm surprised no one has seen the obvious parallels between Chii and Nermal, since each one is vying for title of the Cutest. (My vote goes to Chii.) Too bad that even with Garfield's dialogue, Chii is a total walkover.

Many thanks to DokiDoki for first translating the Manga in the first place. If anyone wants to see more cute cat comics, be sure to pick up Vertical's translation of Chii's Sweet Home.

Original Chii: available here.
