Nothing wrong with spelling and grammar. This style just doesn't go well with my taste. Good Luck!

Why! Of all things have an anthropomorphic female panda? I just find it creepier that it happens to be Genma.

AWESOME story, i look very forward to reading more. (_)

I have to say thanks for your earlier review because it led me to this beauty of a story. Ranma-chan is always attracting people because of her looks and I can't wait to see the reactions of the NWC. Will Kuno be a wizard? If so I take it he will be treating Ranma-chan even more like a piece of meat than usual? Keep up the good work, the setting is ripe for a tale of epic proportions. I will be keeping my eye on this one. Believe it!

Huh. I've been left more than a tad conflicted about this story. On the one hand, I absolutely love a lot of the ideas on display here. This is one of the most intriguing and detailed mergers of the Potter and Ranma worlds that I've seen. On the other hand, I'm kind of, um...bored? I'm sorry! But, well, it's kind of a lot of reading when nothing's really even happened yet.
I'm not sure what I think about Ranma being able to use magic as a male. I suppose it makes sense and all, but it's bit disappointing. That suggests keeping VeelaRanma appearances to as few as possible, right? Sadness.
I agree with Cloud Dancer's review that Akane freaking out because she's charmed by VeelaRanma would be rather entertaining...but I'll go one further and ask, "Could they maybe not hate each other? Or even maybe sort of get along? (Except, perhaps, for how Akane's scared of Ranma because of the charm?)" I know you think RanmaxAkane is the suck, and that's totally fine, but I'm just so very tired of Akane-bashing.
(I've mentioned that last part in many stories' reviews at this point, but it's still true.)
Anyway, I do still look forward quite a bit to seeing where you take this story from here, but I really hope that we start seeing interesting things happen rather than just hearing interesting things be discussed..."seeing" and "hearing" in the figurative sense, of course. The setting you've created is just brimming with potential!

Wow quite a great chapter there and I look forward when you write the next one.
I wonder if Ranma will learn more of the ol'e school of sorcery much more deeply and I look forward to discover how he will turn out at wizardry and how sorcery will be incorporated in his Anything Goes Martial Art.
Please update soon!

Half way through the chapter and I need to start making comments before I forget them :) That is the _only_ problem I have with long chapters. In fact I prefer them to short ones. I may not go back and edit, if I make a lot of comments.
I like your story a lot. I like how you are meshing the two stories. The impact of magic does make up for some of the shortcomings that Genma has. Especially how you've presented them. In looking at Ranma canon, it would also explain some of his continued child like behavior also, though Ranma's shortcomings were never that obnoxious to me. I did have a problem with faults in the other characters though. That's one reason I like the crossovers that put Ranma into another series setting more than bringing others into the Ranma-verse. When Ranma crosses over, the flaws in the rest of the cast also aren't put up with well, another plus. It hasn't happened yet at this point, but I really hope that the conflict with Shampoo doesn't happen. It looks like it can be avoided with the interactions that they are having with Cologne, but I won't hold my breath. I suppose you can use the Veala charm to cause things to be touchy between them for a while.
Also I am worried about Ryoga's place in your story. Even though he is kinda maybe sorta necessary in a Ranma fic as a prime rival, he is really really... annoying. Very little redeeming features. I wonder if the form you've given him will apply towards him being a rival or will it cancel or emphasize his faults? I also never felt that any of the girls in the story were good for Ranma. It would be different if any of them actually expressed any real feelings for him, but I guess it was a part of the feel of the story. Everyone was either an adult with issues, or a child with exaggerated childlike qualities, none of them positive ones.
Hmm, Ranma might not be able to make a wide berth around his family if they discover he is a wizard. They may pursue him even with the complication of the Jusenkyo curse because of the low birth rate of wizards.
I really like how you've started to make the amazon village a place where Ranma can find education and allies. I hope it continues. It would be nice if he had someplace he could fit in at least a little bit. That's another flaw in the Ranma universe, he is without any home or anything similar to one. I hope the relationship does develop with Shampoo. She was the one that I thought was the best match for him, only being hindered by the laws that she and Ranma fell afoul to and she was honor bound to follow.

These chapters take too long to be updated. I understand that there's a lot of story to cover in this AU of yours, but now I'm interested greatly.
I'm looking forward to what'll happen in Nerima. If the Tendo siblings are half-bloods, that means it'll be a magical household, amirite? This means the sisters will have an understanding of Veelas, and be aware of the cause of their jealousy, amirite?
And what of the engagement? No mention of it yet, so is it still on?
I look forward to finding out the answers to my questions in the next chapter, whenever that may be. Sooner rather than later, hopefully.
Keep up the good work. I look forward to more!
Much love, SOTG

Nice! Ranma using magic has always been something I like. It fits in so nicely with the general insanity of the Ranma-verse.
| iceland 1/30/11 . chapter 3
it is a good story to read and it is good to see a new chapter for the story. it will fun to read any new chapters.
| Hishin Trueflame 1/30/11 . chapter 3
not bad waiting to see what happen next
| Riniko22 1/30/11 . chapter 3
I greatly enjoyed your story and look forward to reading more of this story in the future.

-Interesting. It will be cool to see how the Tendos react to Ranma. Kasumi's control will be challenged by the Veela Aura, but it will be interesting to see how Nabiki and Akane fair. Akane has always been rumored to be a lesbian . . . or at least bisexual-leaning-towards-lesbian due to the actions of Kuno and his Hentai Horde. Nabiki, on the other hand, has also been depicted as being attracted to a person's mind more than their body or gender.
Yeah, I know you'd never write a Ranma/Akane story, but just looking at Akane stare at Veela-Ranma breasts . . . and then realize what that means later . . . recipe for hilarious freak out, anyone?
Just out of curiosity, there are a couple of stories of yours that I want to know about. Are you ever going to continue Saint Cassiopeia? What about An American Skunkgirl in Nerima? If you or Bastet don't continue that, I might just hunt down where Sailor Salusia was mentioned and try and continue on that path . . .
What about your To Do List? Hotaru Days One Half sounds pretty interesting, as does A Succubus in Azeroth and Makai Productions . . . though I have heard a story idea similar to the WoW cross, save for the fact that it involves a cursed pair of lingerie and a corruption affect. Still, your version would be awesome to read!
Happy writing, and update soon!
