After a fun couple of sojourns in the hospital that substantially delayed the release of this chapter in the middle of the typsetting phase, I’m proud to finally be able to bring you all Chapter 06 of In Our Wake/Kimi to Boku no Ashiato! Surely you know how this works by now: either grab the download version here or read it online here. Chapter 06 marks the end of Volume 01 out of a total of six, but in terms of the overall plotline, this is where things finally take off in full and we really get to start diving into Aki’s origin story, as well as that of her time travel device. I know it’s often stop and go with me when it comes to finding time to make these releases, but it’s a real honor to work on this series and I hope you’ll stick with me moving forward because I promise you that the payoff only gets better and better from here out!
Special thanks must be given to Dissident, a guy who heard the call for image editing help and exceeded my wildest expectations. His handiwork is so good with even the trickiest stuff that has to be edited to accommodate an English translation that it all blends in with the original art and looks as though it always belonged there to begin with. Without his help, the chapter wouldn’t have looked nearly as pretty in parts and for that, I’m eternally grateful.
Of course, if you’re new to this series, I totally suggest you check it out! While the narrative from here on out consists of more interconnected episodes, much of it is largely structured around standalone vignettes that serve as poignant short stories. You can pick up this series at pretty much any point, but obviously I suggest you start at the beginning. To that end, you can find the chapter index for this series here.
Regardless of whether you’re a new reader or a series veteran, thank you from the bottom of my heart. The work I do on this manga isn’t anywhere near my most popular, but it’s among the projects I hold dearest and it’s a genuine honor to have an audience reading along and enjoying it just as much as I did back in the day with fresh eyes. I plan to keep on translating this wonderful story when I can find time for it no matter what, but the work is made that much easier knowing I have your support.
Here’s to us,

As noted above, life finds a way to always make me late with releasing new chapters of this series, but I love it too much to ever drop it and I really am grateful that those of you who have been reading it are so patient with me. I want to do justice to this work and no matter how long it takes, I will ensure that one day you can read every last chapter in English because this series deserves all the attention and success in the world and then some.
But for now, enjoy Chapter 06. I’m personally excited to get to work on Chapter 07 soon knowing what’s to come in this series because that’s when things really start picking up full steam and it never drops until the very, very end.
Good times. Good times.

Reblogging one more time for the afternoon crowd since this was admittedly a very, very late night release. Regardless, hope to get to work on Chapter 07 soon and with any luck, it won’t take two months and a hospital visit now that I have help. One can hope!

Dear Shauna
lies are like moths
that burn harshly when touching
lightbulbs
or hot things
like fire
or my temper

Had this idea like right away when I started out the Persona 3 Shadows.  The “Heartless Armed Angel.”Sometimes you just really want to draw a Terminator.

I appreciate this out of principle.

Before there were questions about how Strong Bad typed with boxing gloves, there were questions about how Bombermen played their own game with those hands.
