Long title is long, but the story is so worth it.

Excuse the mess. I'm reuploading images onto various image hosting sites. Seems that it wasn't the best idea to load up review images onto the bucket after all.

Title: 100万回生きる藤原妹紅と上白沢慧音の幸せな一生, Fujiwara Mokou who lives million times, and Kamishirasawa Keine's one happy lifetime, Too many Kanji for me to put into Romaji.
Artist: Ichikai
Genre: Slice of Life
Characters: Fujiwara Mokou, Kamishirasawa Keine

Description from Danbooru:

The title makes an allusion to 'The Cat That Lived a Million Times,' a picture book by Sano Youko.

Kenn's Comment: I admit. I teared up a little bit at the end. Oh, the tragedies of immortality.

The story is great. It might be simple, but it is it's simplicity that really makes it charming. The art doesn't hurt either.

Anywho, the artstyle is megacute, comments say it's reminiscent of Tim Burton (Burton and Touhou, what a concept), and I can see where they're coming from. There's a comment that remade a supposedly familiar tune, one that I likely should know, but don't, so if you can recognize it, please do tell. I have a feeling it's from something Burton did, but again, I haven't the foggiest. 

Boys and girls of every age,
would you like to see something strange? 
Come with us and you will see,
it's our land of Gensokyo. 
This is Gensokyo!
This is Gensokyo! 
Youkais scream in the dead of night!
This is Gensokyo, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
It's our land, everybody scream
In this land of Gensokyo 
I am the one hiding under your bed
Cute blond hairs and ribbon glowing red
I am the one hiding under yours stairs
Wings like sparrow and very long nails
This is Gensokyo, this is Gensokyo
Gensokyo! Gensokyo! Gensokyo! Gensokyo!
In this land we call home
Everyone hail to the maiden song 
In this land, don't we love it now?
Everybody's waiting for the next incident 
Round that corner, man-eater hiding in the trash can
Something's waiting to pounce, and how you'll... 
Taste! This is Gensokyo!
Red 'n' white, darkly black 
Aren't you scared? 
Well, that's just fine
Say it once, say it twice
Take a chance and roll the dice
Reach for the Moon in the dead of night 
Everybody scream, everybody scream!!!! 
In our land of Gensokyo! 
I am the witch with a hakkero
Here in a flash and gone without a trace! 
I am the "what" when you call, "What's this?"
I am the wind blowing through your chin 
I am the shadow on the moon at night
Filling your body to the mouth with medicines 
This is Gensokyo, this is Gensokyo
Gensokyo! Gensokyo! Gensokyo! Gensokyo!
Gensokyo! Gensokyo! 
Soft childs everywhere
Life's no fun without a good taste.

You can read it o'er at Pixiv or Danbooru.
