| Okami Princess chapter 8 . 6/27
Well we got to see how Ranma reacted to realizing who the Digimon Emperor is, I wonder how Ken will react when he realizes the guy he faced off against is Ranma? After all it’s been years since they last saw each other and they’ve grown quite a bit since then, plus he remembers Ranma having a male digimon partner, not a female one.
But if he remembers before he becomes a good guy again I think he might get a bit hysterical about it at first before realizing that destroying Ranma would be a way to truely cast aside his past for good.
Plus I wonder if Ranma had taught Ken any martial art skills while they were traveling together, and if he continued to learn more in the real world after that adventure was over?
I’m not saying he’d be able to do anything similar to the crazy stuff that Ranma can do like chi manipulation, but I think it might make things more interesting if Ken was able to hold his own in a fight with a rookie Digimon, that way he would feel like a credible physical threat to the non martial artist Digidestined.
Iori is a kendo practitioner so Ranma (once he finds out) might encourage him to start bringing a bokuto his size with him just in case of an emergency.

Great Chapter again. Ranma made another promise not exactly a bad one but it will add more pressure on him. Interesting seeing Flamemon and Ranma go Drill instructor mode. Ken and Wormon finally make an appearance and of course it set's off the time bomb that is Ranma, I gotta ask is the red ki energy similar to what happened to make Greymon evolve into Skullgreymon? Ranma reaction was well timed with all of normal life stress, plus his duty to Digital world, added to his various promises, the final straw would be seeing the boy who was his little brother/friend/teammate turn into his enemy. Tat does seem the story of his life. Looking forward to next chapter.

My god this is just really awesome and I can't wait to see what happens next. I have a question what is going to be done with Blackwargreymon? I can just see him becoming a second partner for Ranma. Also does this mean that Flamemon is going to get the entire Digimon spirits digivolution line ending in Susanoomo? Please continue

Aww poor Ranma. I wonder if Wormmon will try to contact him and tell him what happened to Ken and they try to come up with a way to get the dark seed out of him or something?

Thanks for the update.
I quite like Ranma surprising people with hidden abilities or being more intelligent in areas they wouldn't expect. As far as the manga and anime go we never actually do get an exact idea of how "school" smart Ranma is, so it is actually an open question.
Quite a bit of emotion at the end of the chapter, you did a good job putting Ranma's anguish into writing at seeing an old friend become corrupted/evil.

Poor Ranma. I almost feel sorry for Arukenimon and Mummymon. They may not be the top dogs in the chain of command, but they are the first ones Ranma is likely to come across that are at least partially responsible for Ken's Dark Seed.

Oh yeah, *also* this has the other part of a Fake Ranma crossover.
Namely how absolutely humorless this all is.
This is a crossover between an absurd Martial Arts Slapstick Romantic Comedy and a Saturday Morning Cartoon. Yet there is not a single bit of humor I could find. No light hearted moments, no jokes. Ranma isn't cooking up wacky schemes, there are no antics, nothing except a work expecting me to take a story of a martial artist who changes sex with cold water and his living virtual pet seriously.

Of course we can't have a fake Ranma crossover without dumb character bashing.
You dismiss Ranma's complicity with the issue by making up moviations that directly contridict canon. You bash Akane in particular because you can't actually have Ranma in love with her like in canon! You can't have their actual relationship so you make both of them out of character to make Ranma some poor victim who doesn't know any better rather then the jerk who loves riling people up he really is.

Poor Ranma. I wonder what the reaction to his life story or atleast the parts that will likely be mentioned so far will have to the rest of the Destine. I also wonder how this will all work out.
I hope that this is the kick in the pants that the new Destine and old team need to take things to the next level.
