This is without a doubt good writing. It is writing that is very heavy on detail. At times I thought the details was a bit much, particularly in regards to elaborate details about food. At the same time there was a lot of daily life detail, there was not a lot of movement in the overall plot, though I did think your characterisation of Ami and Usagi worked well.
The other thing that really sticks out is that Ranma is clearly being manipulated, likely by that heirloom of Setsuna's and it is not small time manipulation, but complete life warping manipulation. He is becoming the perfect Sailor Nanny and that needs to stop. Oh I'm not saying a reset needs done and out comes the original Ranma, but seeing some glances of him once and awhile would not hurt. Perhaps he could go on a date as himself for a change? Either way, good luck with the story...

Is this gonna be a Ranma x Setsuna pairing

My favorite compared to your other fic. One of the thing I dislike about yours is extreme detail of military stuff, and well... not sure how to say it. TF Gimmick? Like, Asuka TF and Sailor Moon Iron Maiden armor thingy. It appears collaboration with others mellowed both of you, and honestly, this feels better than the rest.

How 'chubby' is the current Ranma, really? I can understand not being harsh and angular, but Ranma-chan didn't strike me as being skinny to begin with, and with all the repeated claims of her being 'fat' now... it's kinda hard to picture.

this story is glorious Oo
i never thought that a story of born-boy-ranma turning girl could be this good

I loved this chapter. I love the idea of Ranma being Hotaru's nanny, it's really cute. Please update this again real soon!

Great story. I'm glad I've found it.
I do wonder a bit why Ranma's curse hasn't been revealed to the senshi and for that matter why they havn't tried to see what would happen if it does it as a man, especially since they already had the idea that the transformation was affecting the curse.
Ranma not having an attack seems...wrong. Interesting to see where you go with this.
Please keep writing.

Please please please say that you will have the next chapter out in less than five years. I want to know what happens next. How 'bout two months? Is that enough time? I can wait that long.
Thank you for writing something that is a pleasure to read (due to quality) and also a torture to read (years to write).

This really is a fun story. I wish Ranma were less passive overall, but she is cute. I can't wait until her and Setsuna officially get together. That will be lovely.

Okay, I want to preface what I am about to say with this. I really like a lot of this author's other work. I have a lot of respect for Sunshine and it's one of the reasons why I started reading this. The problem is that this story isn't good. It's a well crafted bowl of beef stew with very little beef in it. It could be that I am not the right type of reader for this kind of story, but I found myself waiting for something to happen. There are some really great moments, but there is just so much text between them that it's hard to keep reading.
This story would probably be better as an original piece of fiction. The Ranma and Sailor Moon story lines are just a fancy backdrop. You can take them away and the story would be mostly unchanged. The only real thing the source material gives is a cast of characters that is easily recognizable. By the end of the first chapter, a lot of that material had been wiped away and we were left with this. A story about a shy runaway who is taken in by a rich family to take care of their sick child and finally finds happiness with a family that loves her. That premise can be a really good story in the right hands, it just isn't a good Ranma or Sailor Moon fanfiction.
That doesn't mean I want you to stop. This is still your story and if the muse is telling you to write, then write. All I ask is that you find a way to bring more plot development into future chapters. I feel that there is some powerful drama here, you just have to get to where you can put it into words. At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter if you "stay true" to the source material. We're all just living in your world. We just want to make that world more awesome.

There's a whole lot of words to this here feeding fetish story. That's what I assume it is, anyway. It took 136,000 words for Ranma to find out about the Sailor Senshi, and yet the story has been nailed by food porn that would make Brian Jacques proud at least three times. I meant the first sentence to be a joke, but now that I'm writing it, I find I truly am just waiting for you guys to get to the point of the story already.
I mean, come on guys! I normally wouldn't care in a well written story like this, considering it's only three chapters so far, but it's been SEVEN. YEARS. Can you really afford to not have the plot start if three chapters is taking you over half a decade?
Either get to the point of the story, or just cut to the part where Ranma gains gratuitous amounts of weight in inadequate amounts of time in a deliberate pandering to feeding fetishists. I don't care which one it is, but stop pussyfooting around with this food bullshit.

Love these long chapters, very much looking forward to reading more. Take all the time you guys need, it'll be well worth it when the next chapter comes.

Having Nabiki find Ranma and then not knowing it was her... effing priceless. That was so brilliant. And the good living taking the rough edges off but leaving the muscles behind, simply helping her body mature... very clever. I do love this story so very much. I really can't wait for her and Setsuna to get together though. The group of them are already an adorable family. Not being the nanny and simply being the "mom" would make it painfully cute.
And that bunny thing... too much. Love this.
