This is an intriguing, captivating and fantastic story. It feels authentic to the context to the plot. You have compelling political plots, and it doesn't focus only on the romance between Kenshin and Kaoru.
You take it at a great pace, and feels "real" despite being set in a fantasy world. Kaoru has real issues to face, like prejudice against her as both as a woman and servant, and she faces it as I imagine she would.
Kenshin is a little different than the canon version, but he still retains his inherent compassion, and on the whole is not too different. I imagine he would be like the way you depicted him in your universe. Don't know if I'm making sense here.
Truthfully, I don't think your characters are too OOC. They actually retain their defining characteristic, which is great.
It's been three years since you last updated this, so I think I would be right in assuming that you "abandoned" this story. It's a pity though. There are not many stories out there that have this story's depth, complexity and detail.
It would be great if you resumed this story, whenever you regain your inspiration. It's unique and would probably become one of the greatest Rurouni Kenshin fics out there if you continued.
I don't really have any criticisms, only praises. Great grammar, descriptions, detail, and plot development.
This is a great work. Hope you decide to continue this.

AWESOME job on the story so far! It is extremely interesting,and nice plot so far. Please continue writing the story! Like , what's going on with Seta? How many more Scrolls are Kenshin & others going to find? When is the war going to get better? When is Kaoru going to stop being a soldier? Who's side is Seta going to take? Does Kenshin fall for somebody else? Does Sano and Megumi somehow get together?And many more,but that's all for care and I hope that you are re-inspired!

Hmm. I really wonder who is that dark person in the shadows, and how Soujirou will be when Yumi is done with him ... He will regain his memories eventually, won't he? But I'm sure there'll be lots of twists and turns before then. Hope to read more soon~ Great story. Kaoru as a man ... XD ... she (he) even has a beard!

I hope that you update this fic soon. After writing 15 chapters it'll be a pity if you don't conclude this fic. It is really good and I love it. I hope your not to busy since you haven't updated WTWRAY either.

hey now that you've updated when the world revolves around you, will you be updating this story? i do hope so, it's really good btw

It's good, but towards the end it's getting bland. Try and add something to it, like that Megumi was found out, and Kaoru's there as a lady and convinces Akira he doesn't need her.

| I-LOVE-VEGETA chapter 11 . 1/14/2007
hm. i like the story lots, but this chapter threw me for a bit of a loop. isn't soujiro's trademark the fact that he NEVER shows pain or emotion?
but, well, it is fanfiction, i suppose, you can do whatever you like with any of the characters!
