I have a feeling that from this chapter on, there isn't going to be a whole lot of mushy gushy stuff. Please update soon. This I a really interesting story unlike most in this Fandom. It's not often when you find stories in which there are secrets that haven't been told by the third chapter (Nyasu doesn't count), the other partner can't say 'I love you', peoples lives are at stake, and the writing is understandable and not fast paced. However, there were some grammatical errors, and a few spelling mistakes. Be careful when you re read you're stories or else you'll miss some stuff that would bother quite a few people.
Considering you haven't updated in over a year, I don't think you'll be uploading by Friday. I hope the Hiatus will be over soon so you can continue with this wonderful and unique story. In short, please update soon. Don't do it for me, but for the thousands of people out there that just adore your work here.

Aw... Such a sweet moment.

When I read this, I think of the Pokemon manga. Also, this has been bothering me quite a bit... In Japan isn't Meowth called Nyasu or Nyarth? It's kind of confusing to me when the Pokemon over there have (and I'm just exaggerating here) ten different names.

HOLY MOTHER OF FUCK! For a Pokemon story (especially one about Team Rocket), this is the Holy Grail. I'm serious. It's hard to find decent Rocketto Dan story. Sure, a lot if them have decent plots, but not the writing talent to back it up. I must read MORE!

I loved the way you handled the aftermath. Kojiro's insecurities were so typical of him, and I'm glad that Musashi was able to reassure him that he has nothing to worry about. It was very interesting to learn some more about their pasts through this chapter - I wasn't expecting Rumika to have 'taught' Kojiro things in a sexual manner when they were children. This hints that Rumika is even more messed up than first presumed.
It's very in character of Musashi to be unable to say that she loves Kojiro, too, because of how long it takes for her to open her heart to others. Hopefully in time she'll be able to say it back to him.
I wait eagerly for the next chapter.

Well, I'm not eighteen yet, but I've been reading smutty/lemony stuff since the tender age of ten, so yeah...
This chapter is definitely my favourite of them all so far. I loved the sensual nature of the beginning of the chapter - you really built up to the sex beautifully. I could really feel the temperature in the room rising by about twenty degrees.
The sex itself was handled very tastefully. Lemons and smutty stuff are my favourite things to read, and this one was no exception. It was very hot yet very subtle, which I loved about it. Yet it was also very bittersweet, knowing that Kojiro's parents can take this all away from him.
In all, a brilliant chapter.

I thought Masuki was going to ruin everything between Kojiro and Musashi, so I'm so glad that she didn't. Kojiro's confession scene here was absolutely beautiful; you worded it in a way that had tears springing to my eyes. It was also very sensual. I wish this could happen in the anime. xD
My favourite line of the chapter was this: '"It's always been you, Musashi," he told her, brushing the pad of his thumb over her cheek once more, his heart in his eyes for all the world to see, but there was only Musashi staring back.' I thought that was simply gorgeous. :3

I had almost forgotten that Kojiro's parents are after him whilst reading this chapter because it was so darn sweet. I love the way that Kojiro planned this all out so that he could surprise Musashi, that was very sweet of him. And do I detect jealosy on Musashi's behalf when that receptionist was flirting with Kojiro? :D
I think what makes this chapter so powerful is the fact that it doesn't dwell on Kojiro's predicament, but revels in his desire to please Musashi. Which, of course, makes it even more hard-hitting when the reasons for this are remembered.

I really liked this beginning chapter. It looks like Kojiro's parents are really up to something terrible in order to get Kojiro to come home. D: I really like how seriously Kojiro is taking the threat, and is trying to protect Musashi and Nyasu from harm. Whilst I do actually feel sorry for Kojiro's parents (I loved the scene where Kojiro sees his mother collapse onto the floor - it makes her seem very vulnerable, which is different when she is usually portrayed as a one-dimensional evil person), I don't agree with the way they're trying to get their son back.
I'll read and review the next chapter as soon as I can. :)

Kojiro ran away from home as a child, at around 10-12 years old. So he was molested as a child by girl the same age? Rumika would have been sexually molested herself to possess the sexual knowledge to "train" Kojiro. Sounds like both families have disturbing secrets.

The whole conversation this chapter is wonderful. It's so nice to see Musashi and Kojiro really talk their feelings out like this. I like how it delves into both of the characters' emotional issues, with Kojiro afraid that he can't be good enough and Musashi unable to say she loves him back. They're both so understanding and comforting to each other. Kojiro's reassurance that nothing has really changed and it's still the three of them against the world is very sweet.

I really like this so far. It's very well written and has a lot of depth. The setup with Kojiro's family is interesting and has potential for some incredible drama. Knowing what Kojiro is planning gives the whole romance such a sad undertone.
This chapter was really well done - a lot better than most adult fics, I think. Somehow I particularly liked Musashi's line at the end about her toes being numb. It's such an absurd thing to say at a time like that, it really shows how mind blowing the whole experience must have been and how frazzled she is.
Definitely looking forward to more!

I've been avoiding this story for a while since it was listed as a "tragedy" and I despise fics with depressing endings since real life can be depressing enough. But I noticed you changed the labeling to drama/romance instead, so I'm hoping you decided to give the story a happy ending. What you've written so far is amazing and I really enjoyed reading the first four chapters. Since the story in its complete form is of an adult nature I'd also suggest you post it on adultfanfiction dot net as well. It needs more decent TR fanfiction. I look forward to more, and I'll keep my fingers crossed for Musashi and Kojiro.

I am really enjoying this so far! Exciting and intriguing, please keep going!
