Ranma Saotome. Man Among Men. Miss Bunbun. Actually, that's kinda funny.
Now that I think of it, this story is like a very alternate version of Ozzallos' The Best of Times. Where that Pluto sought to distract the chaos magnet that is Saotome Ranma with a never ending stream of combat and torment, your Mistress Puu seeks to defeat Ranma with ultimate femenin decadence and social pageantry.
Will Jusenkyo ever come back to bite Miss Bunbun on her fluffy bumbum? Inquiring minds want to know.

always a treat!

Nice one. Very nice one. I'd almost wonder what kind of wedding they'll go fo, but i'm almost certain Ranma's going to wear the wedding dress, so i'm guessing a certain Moon Rabbit is going to officiate.
I'm wondering about that Senshi of Nemesis, though. I mean, i tried to see if i recognized any actual Senshi, but... unless one of the Senshis came back from the future, the only two people i could think of as her would be either Akane (which, we'd have hadsome hints) or Koan (which would fit, with her being formerly from Nemesis), but i doubt it's either of them.
So, i'm drawing a blank.

*foams at mouth*
I am so happy... T_T
This chapter had me squirming in my seat. Such a wonderful story. You're such a brilliant Author.

When Michiru answers Ranma's telephone call, she has it about Ranma looking up Michiru, shouldn't that be Haruka?

GREAT! Another chapter! Now to find a tranquil moment to read it. :)
| AzaggThoth chapter 5 . 9/4/2014
What comparatively little interaction and actual plot I could find was nice but it was very hard to stomach sifting trough all the fashion and food porn to get to it.

This was a wonderful chapter. You made some really nice insights into how Ranma was coping with all of this and the changes she had made to her life and appearance. Great stuff. And the proposal... very nice. I guess this means that Hotaru will start calling her Mama-Ranma now, which is very fitting. Setsuna-papa would also not be amiss.
I really do love this series and cherish each new chapter. Thank you.

the lats two chapters have gone in a very different direction from the first 3. It reminds me of wheel of time, it starts awesome and then suddenly you have 500 page descriptions of pleated skirts except here we have paragraph after paragraph of nothing but the description of ranma putting on 500 lbs of weight.
There is really no Ranma character left at all, just a woman whose focus in the story is body weight.
now a marriage proposal? did we just go to lightspeed? I had to go back and reread a lot since I was just paging down through so much of chapter 5 having lost all interest.
Chapter 4 was very hmmmm.. chapter 5 was a large downward spiral for me to the point where I no longer have interest in chapter 6. I feel like the story has been lost, the characters have been lost. whats the main story arc now?

Wow this fic just keeps getting better. I really appreciate the amount of detail used in Ranma's descriptions it really paints a vivid picture. It also helps with the details of the clothes emphasizing how much more sophisticated Ranma now is with her peers and the subtle seduction Setsuna is weaving. Hurry and gimme more!

I was starting to enjoy this.
This chapter seems to just be a grind.
Hair do's, Cloths shopping, Dates, etc.
To be frank I skipped over a lot of the slice of life stuff done to the nth degree.
Let's see the next chapter
| Crimson Yrael chapter 5 . 9/4/2014
I'm currently torn on the direction of this story. While I really enjoy the overall plot and writing, there seems to be a massive over-emphasis on Ranma's (usually, though it is often the same for other characters, just not as frequent) appearance. I realize that it's a major part of the story, but the scenes tend to grind to a halt while every other paragraph is detailing what's happening with Ranma's hair, accessories, or clothes.
This would be far less noticeable if the other facets of the story were just as detailed. However, reading through the story, I often find myself at a loss as to what the scene itself is beyond a rather vague assumption based on the basic details given.
I'm still enjoying the story, but the above has been nagging at me for the past few chapters. I hope this criticism is constructive!
