Nobiko gained massive online fame after appearing on the message board 2chan between 2004 and 2005. She eventually became a meme where she appeared in several edited pictures and became known as Longcat.
Her online moniker holds some truth. Nobiko was considered to be really tall standing at 65 centimeters (25.5 inches), Independent reported.
She skyrocketed to fame, with fans developing lore of fights involving her doppelganger Tacgnol and characters fans created such as Catnarok.
This is “Longcat” from the internet memes. I actually looked up this kitty just a few days ago and was happy to find that the kitty was amazingly still alive & 17 years old. However, it seems that this long cat has passed away today. Let’s remember the sweet-kitty fondly. https://t.co/n1Eu4me8Qd
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
