I don't remember how I stumbled on this story- someone else's favorites list, I think... I started it without having any experience with this series, then watched the first episode last night (because I need ANOTHER one!) then got to a certain point today where I threw my phone and swore- a LOT- and had to take a break for a bit. Glad I made it to the end- lovely story! Thank you! 3

Hello! Nenju is the first fanfiction I ever remember reading and it drew me in. I'm an addict. I'll admit it. So addicted, it seems, that I've returned to SC and am attempting to write my first fanfiction.
I am finding it a challenge because I don't know much of the historical context surrounding SC. After re-reading your excellent ouvre in its entirety, I am convinced you can point me toward some excellent books. Also, if you have written any books...on any subject at all... I would trip over my feet running to get them. I'm a sucker for writers who take time and choose the right word, not the first word.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The amount of research you put into it and the way you kept the characters in CHARACTER was great. I can barely describe what a joy this was to read. I can honestly say this is, by far, one of the best pieces of fan fiction I've ever read.

Wow. Just wow.

I read this through start to finish; I couldn't navigate away, and the desire to read the next chapter and find out what happened totally eclipsed my impulse to review each chapter, so here I am attempting to summarize. And find myself unable. I really liked how you worked the shipping angle and regardless of how it turned out, I'm super impressed. (Honestly, I ship Fuu with both Mugen and Jin, but am dissatisfied if she ends up with either; nothing personal).
I really enjoyed the level of historical and cultural detail here, which is something I encounter rarely in SamCham fics - considering how the series itself is steeped in the history of Japan and its interaction with the West, no matter how anachronistic it may get; a scenario where one needs to know the rules inside and out in order to break them.
Thanks for such a great experience, and I wish you luck in future literary endeavours!

Done reaaaaaadiiiiing! Yay!
Wow, the ammount of research you went through for this story is just unbelivable. Even tho you said it yourself that you were a nerd, it's still very impressive.
I found it very enjoyable (if I didn't I would've left it, duh), thanks for filling my empty holiday.

Ok, well, I'm like completely blown away at how good you characterized these guys, even with the romance, and how very much original flavor the whole thing is. The writing is fantabulous. The characters didn't ever stop being themselves,even as they changed in different ways, which is way harder than you would think. Especially considering the romance fics I've seen so far.
And not to mention how you ended the love triangle with my pet pairing for Samurai Champloo, I was so happy. Jin/Fuu are my OTP, but the number of fics for them is a grand total of 60-some compared with Mugen/Fuu's 250-ish. You didn't make the love triangle unbearably complicated which is a godsend as well.
This makes this story all the more sweeter, though I loved this for the quality and amazing-ness. It's unbelievably canon, unbelievably believable. WOW. Serious props!

Hnnngh. This was perfect. It was everything I was looking for, and MORE. You are amazing and this fic rocks my world.

You should post a warning somewhere that this is a jinxfuu fic. While I understand that some readers like the suspense over who fuu will choose, I'm sure there are many readers(like me) who support mugenxfuu quite strongly. It's a lovely, well written, well captured story, just that after watching the anime, I strongly believe that it is Fuu and Mugen who belong together. I devoured the first seven chapters, and then i skipped ahead to chapter 34 because the story was veering too much into jinxfuu territory and well,...the jinfuu thing upset me. However, I do realize that its just my preference for mugenxfuu which upset me, the story was very well captured. I hope you write a mugenxfuu story someday and post the warning about this being fuujin so that mugenxfuu shippers are not hopelessly crushed after reading quite a few chapters that fuu's gonna end up with jin.

This is, by far, my favorite Samurai Champloo story. You are a wonderful writer; your characterization is so well done, as is your sense of timing and description. I admit, I leaned more towards Fuu and Mugen before reading this, but now ... now it seems like Fuu and Jin is the 'right' pairing, and I have trouble imagining it any other way.
At some point, I will have to go back and review individual chapters, but I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy this story. Thank you so much for writing and posting it!

God you are so perfect. Every chapter you wrote had at least one really really really good piece of prose in it I mean DAMN GIRL you're amazing. Like the part when Fuu saw the guys silhouetted against the Nagasaki night (as you said) was just SO WELL DELIVERED. I'm in awe of you.
Thank you do much for writing this. You are the physical manifestation of badassness.
STAY FANTASTIC BABY

I love how you gave the conversation from Mugen's POV and Fuu's POV. It was well done. I was also blindsided by Matthew. Plus, Yatsuha's in trouble!
| mariocart86 chapter 27 . 6/4/2012
Oooh. Stupid Mugen. Stupid Fuu for making Mugen do something stupid. I'm such a big Jin-Fuu fan though, so I get it.
| mariocart86 chapter 25 . 6/4/2012
Oh man. Jin-Fuu-Mugen choice angst. Love it.

Yatsuha's father is hilarious. Makes it hard to hate him.
