| Sable Dawn chapter 22 . 5/7
You know reading this and your other Ranma stories makes me wonder how Ranma would do as the Shield Hero from The Rising of the Shield Hero, how would he react to his ability to fight (which seems to be the main pillar of his existence) nerfed into the ground, how would he get around the low attack stat, would ki be classed as magic, would Ranma's knowledge of martial arts include methods of weaponizing a shield.
| AnimeFan13579 chapter 22 . 5/1
Nice chapter and honestly I'm wondering if Ranma will end up with his own cat wanting him to be it's 'master' and train it to fight. Could just make an OC exceed since just about every dragon slayer ends up having a partner. Could also either involve an alternate version of a Ranma character making him question if his original world is linked. Or have some incident of someone wanting to go after Ranma and forced Gosunkugi's into helping and then they got stuck transformed into an Exceed.

By itself the chapter was excellent especially the fight scenes. The problem is you had Ranma coast so relatively easily through all the prior chapters that it came across as forced for him to suddenly have so much of a problem with fighters that did not seem remotely as strong as for example the demons he fought. The Rana you wrote in the previous chapters should have blown right through the tower.
| WearyCurmudgeon chapter 22 . 4/9
Hey, boy has Carla's mom miscalculated if she thinks she could've offed Ranma.
"The 10 Commandments" was (IMNSHO) fairly limited due to the lack of magic in Edolas.
Would Ranma consider gifting its blueprints to his Erza, so that she could perfect it and integrate it with her armour switching?
Considering how many armours she goes through, having a "backup system" would seem to be prudent.
Hope he gets over that mental block like Ranma Stark did in "Wild Wolf", sometimes the most effective way to deal with a problem is a huge pile of bodies. (The "healer" one with the Archer noble also learned this lesson quickly enough.)
Least in worlds like this.
Treat them like he did those Orcs way back when. This is essentially war declared by Edolas on the populace of Earth Land and as a Ranger it's his duty to protect the latter.
As for the soldiers just following orders. Nuremberg made clear that this wasn't a valid excuse for war crimes.
What was done to the civilians of Magnolia (by way of the Anima canon) counts as one as this was an unprovoked attack upon a civilian target.
Raping female prisoners also falls into that category. And you alluded to them doing so earlier in the chapter as well as the previous one.
So yeah. Not feeling very charitable towards them.
| ArmorOfGeddon chapter 22 . 4/3
Honestly... While most of the chapter was enjoyable. The big fight against the robot dragon was a disappointment. The same, almost brutal, slog that it was in the original story, but worse because now it was all about Ranma, with Natsu and Gajeel even being reduced to mere hindrances. I get that he is the main character, but not only taking a fairly amazing battle away from the canon characters (Wendy didn't even get to participate this time around, despite being stronger than her canon self), but actually making them a detriment to him, makes me wonder why you even bothered to have them participate.
Its not quite bashing (as their inability to contribute is justified), but it is getting kind of boring watching Ranma practically solo every major fight while the rest of Fairy Tail is lucky to, at best, get to deal with the minions (and here it's even pointed out multiple times that Ranks was going easy on the army so the rest of Fairy Tail wasn't even really needed). Like, why do a crossover if one side barely ever gets to do anything noteworthy?
Honestly, medicine that supercharges magic sounds like something a society that's losing it's magic would make. Hell, it could have easily been something Mystogan found in Earthland instead to make it less SoD-breaking. And four Dragon Slayers going to town on a Mecha-Godzilla rip-off would have been amazing.
| Anttolas chapter 22 . 4/3
Great chapter and i do hope Juvia really and fully joins in on the relationship of Ranma and Erza, kinda hoping Seilah joins to so he gets those three as his harem.
| SeanHicks4 chapter 22 . 3/31
Interesting... you reawakened a need to read some Fairy Tail... maybe even canon since it’s been close to a decade since I could find scanlations of canon on a lot of manga... other than the usual grammar points I see, I’m blanking on anything worthwhile to say
| juhiko02 chapter 9 . 3/30
Chapter was good but ranma looks like he was nerfed he looks sooo weak and when he going to learn the HOT WATER MAGIC is the most important magic he need because in his female form he is super weak and every chapter till now he is in his female form all the time except like one paragraph in every chapter.
| juhiko02 chapter 4 . 3/29
Can ranma finally learn HOT WATER MAGIC is annoying that in every chapter he is in female form.
| Dragon Man 180 chapter 22 . 3/29
You’d think Gajeel would be able to get a bit of magic back by eating the magic weapons, even if drained. Oh well, it was still an awesome chapter and I can’t wait to see how things go with the Exceed.
| Blaze1992 chapter 22 . 3/29
I am surprised ranma and the girls weren't more violent once it was known the soldiers did things to female captives.
Also Yay looks like Juvia is gonna join the harem she deserves some happiness.
| Mr. Haziq chapter 22 . 3/28
Oh god... the suspense is killing me on whether or not Juvia and Seilah is gonna join in or not...
Ranma and company made great time honestly. Gajeel is also doing pretty well on his own.i
I'd hate to hear the two Gajeels laugh together.
Ranma should probably stock up stuff in his Ki space after this.
Fssre Drgsn Slyrs Ulghmat Assshhted Tack, Orggrpred Frve Cla. My new fav attack name.
Wow. Go Juvia. First girl to enter Ranma in ways nobody has ever done.
| Kaiya Azure chapter 22 . 3/28
Sometimes I wonder how many pages could have been made if FFN had character limits per "chapter."
Okay, reading how the Exceed managed to get their island to float definitely sounds like a plausible explanation for how magic started disappearing. Too bad no one seems to have even considered the possible connection.

The continent were the alvarez empire is located is called alakitasia not alcatraz...thats a prison
