    I think this is the most emotion we’ve ever seen from Lien. I like it.

  • Cyeca

    I thought it would be a WTF face but that’s so much cuter!

    (There’s going to be an entire facility full of animal eared androids, isn’t there?)😉

    • Hevensdragon

      Its made by sage so yes it will probably be a faze.

  • Hijojo

    The Ear Moved.
    I wonder if its tactile.

    • tych

      well Nami and the androids have observed Kate and blue so I guess for authenticity’s sake they would make them authentic

      • Hijojo

        I assumed this was a prototype. Possibly not all features would be implemented yet.

        • tych

          wouldn’t stop the androids from make a prototype with tactile reactions if limited

        • tych

          I assume they already have loads of animal ears for other reasons I would rather not think about

  • DudeHack

    I love the idea that Lien would like animal ears. Also thanks for making them move Sage, the best anime out there had animal people ears and tails move with their emotion, you have always shown that in your characters so why not with the girls as well 🙂

  • GES280

    Lien was already adorable. now she’ll go into full on cuteness overload.

  • The Aussie Bloke

    Silly Nami, you’re supposed to make it match your hair so it looks like it belongs! (Unless you’re Kate, because tiger ears > cat ears)

    • I’ve always hated the idea that the ears have to match the hair color. It’s fine if they do but it’s a boring rule people try to force on artist. Not even kidding. I’ve had people tell me I’m doing Catgirls wrong by having non-matching ears to hair. I’m not upset with you saying this. I know you don’t mean anything by it. Bringing it up though let me vent a bit and that’s healthy or something. Right? Anywho… Did you notice that the ear color does match someone else? Also I have drawn Lien with kitty ears before 😀

      • SoraHjort

        honestly, I think mismatching ears are better. From a visual standpoint it creates a (usually) pleasing contrast. Contrasting can work when they are the same hue, but they definitely need to be a different value (usually darker) to work.

        • Michael Halpern

          Depends on the character, for instance Blake from RWBY, i can’t picture without matching ear color. Kali maybe, but she has the ear ring thing going for her…

      • Michael Halpern

        Yes i noticed that ear color matches Blue’s ears…

      • Kitirena Koneko

        I agree that not every catgirl’s (and catboy’s) hair and fur colors should match. What about naturally flamepoint or sealpoint kitties, nyao? (And I’m not just saying this because I’m a “reverse flamepoint”–black ears and tail, red hair–in human form; in cat form, I’m completely black-furred.) I say that they’re your catgirls, and if you want them “mismatched”, then make them that way! Doubly so because we kitties don’t always match up IRL, “magical genetics” being what they are.

      • The Aussie Bloke

        Yes, i did notice. And maybe match was the wrong word there… Blend, maybe? But then, I’ve always been one for single-colour schemes in my own characters (my Final Fantasy XIV miq’ote, Caiemita Tigersoul, for instance, has red hair with blonde highlights, red furred ears and tail (with a blonde tail-tip), and typically dresses all in red)

      • tych

        I always thought it was cause the artist was so lazy they would use the same hair color not because of pressure from fan base

    • Kitirena Koneko

      Why do they need to match? In human form, my ears and tail have black fur and my hair is red, nyao. (In my cat form, I’m a sable longhaired Angora moggy, which is why I have black ears and tail.) Many catgirls have mismatched fur and hair colors, and it often works!

  • SoraHjort

    Why do I think Lien would look better in Panda/Ursine ears instead of feline or canine ears?

    • Psyche

      I think it’s probably because of the hair buns.

      • SoraHjort

        Could be, it could also be my subconscious going “want other animal types; bears, bunnies, and mice!”

        • DarkMyste

          i hope its
          bunny ears she would look cute with them

  • The_Ninjaneer

    XD sooo….cute…..must….have

  • Psyche

    Damn, Lien is adorable in this page.

  • Merlin

    I love it! Probably the single most stoic of the android girls, if not the entire cast, and she melts down over the cat ears! 😀

  • Darkoneko Hellsing

    [internalised squee]

  • SmokeSkid

    Lien with cat ears? where do I sign my soul away to see that?

    • It’s free on Patreon…

  • Alexander

    Must have some ears…..MUST HAVE SOME EARS! GIVE THEM TO MEEEE!

  • CazzT

    Suddenly all the robotgirls are robotcatgirls. I am all kinds of OK with this.

  • Piccolo

    This will be very good for Lien, because now we’ll be able to read her emotions in her EARS

  • tych

    I vote Panda Ear Lien!

  • Ira

    Ever notice there seems to be a standard where a girl who is generally seen as cool/cold/a badass has to have an extreme soft spot for cute things…not saying it’s not true, just noting that it has been around for as long as I can remember.
