Reviews for The Dark Lords of Nerima
beamknight87 chapter 24 . 9/13/2017

This was an amazing story. It had everything: excellent plot, character development, political intrigue, lots of action and humor, all neatly packaged in the chaos and insanity that is Ranma 1/2.

I must salute the way you connected everything, going from situations to character interactions and the unexpected developments. The narrative was also pretty entertaining and all the battle scenes had their own quirks to distinguish themselves among the many that happened in the story. If I have to say, my favorite one was the one in Chapter 12, with Ranma absolutely pulverizing Jadeite. Not only for how awesome that was but also because that particular incident become the point of no return for the rest of the events.

The humor was also pretty good, every chapter has various scenes that made me laugh like a maniac due to how ridiculous they were. Few authors can pull that off but you did it masterfully.

The portrayal of the characters was also spot-on, but it is Beneda the most important one with how much she changes and develops thanks to a bit of kindness.

Anyways, seems I still have a lot to read to catch up with your whole tale, but I'm pretty sure I will not be disappointed.

Oh man.

I came across this tale by mere chance, the premise sounded interesting but reading by myself this whole build up for the first big confrontation, I just can't stop chuckling at how amusing the mess will be with the pile of misunderstandings and out of context assumptions everyone keeps making. It's hilarious.

Oh man, that whole scene in the clinic was utter perfection. Everything fit so perfectly and very much in the spirit of canon. I couldn't stop giggling.
Thanks for writing this story

Of all the jokes about Ryogas sense of direction...
I can remember the Episode where he and Ukyo team up to go looking for Ranma.
"We sold Okonomyaki on all continents, I made a pretty Yen from it but I never saw the Ocean once. Riddle me that..."

Something I just realized, is that Kasumi subverts a typical anime trope. The hair style she has normally means that the character with that style is doomed to die, often a horrible and painful death. But Kasumi doesn't. In fact, the worse that ever befalls her is what happens in this chapter.

You are Ranma.
So the odds are pretty good I would think.

This chapter Mouse takes out his phd in badassery and shows it to all comers.
It is also the chapter of the supreme burn:
'Oh, like you're one to talk...'
Even though Ryouga is right and Ranma really is a 'ham', this makes it magnificent.
That dramatic pause lasts several minutes I imagine. XD
Thank you for writing this.

I didn't want to reread the antics in the clinic.
Because, frankly, I remember it being utterly cringe worthy.
And it was.
It was also hilarious.
They are so lucky that Ami is still young without much experience.
Although I pity Ami's mother, she won't be taken seriously now if she ever tells her daughter about a handsome guy she met.

Ryouga actually admitting he needs help
The end of the world is near, or at the situation at least is very dire.

Wow, tux boy and Sailor Moon actually working in concert.

Oh, shite, if only Jadeite had listened to mommy and had kept his hair short like a respectable man.

Oh, he was only playing with them, well fuck.

Mars certainly pulling her weight this battle.
Hooray for last minute saves, good job Mercury.

Oh, it is car instead of a human.

He had not wanted to use because if they had the appropriate counter spells.
the hell?

Woot, you saved that boy.
And Jadeite, you done goofed.

Okay, teleportation HAXS
Bleh, better kill them fast Jadeite, or they will turn this situation, somehow, back on you.

Rage mode activated, you are now fucked, please roll over and die, it will be far less agonising that way.

O.O another missunderstanding, she's not dead, not yet.

phew, reinforcements for the good guys this time.
I hope Ryouga is okay, although it doesn't sound like he is.

And no, these are not merely sorcerers.

Thank you for this chapter.
Guest chapter 11 . 6/6/2017
Wow, silly Mouse.

If Ryouga is going to do what I think he is going to do...
Well, you will forever be an evil guy in the eyes of those young, impressionable, little girls.

.. Okay, it wasn't a kick so it wasn't that bad.. maybe.
Also not a puppy...
Sailor Moon's reaction is fantastic.

That aim.

Super dramatic, edge of the seat.
Then Ranma comes in.
But Ranma is right, he can, possibly, evade those debilitating blows, Ryouga can't.

Yes, Tux boy is actually a badass in this story.
Doesn't happen often.
But maybe he should have killed the Dark mistress with that sneak attack.
Although it might (probably) not have worked.

Sailor Moon, the hilarious flailing yet quite effective way of fighting seems to be your go to.
Then I remember she's only 14ish and not yet blooded by the big battle with Beryl.
Without even her full complement of bodyguards.
And I realize she is just a terrified girl trying to do good and protect her friends, even though she has never had any training at all.

The youma had enough fighters to send one after Beneda.
Bad bad bad target priority.

Oh no, the evil witch used an illusion spell, let's hope Ranma will be able to fight through it.

What would Ranma say...
Hey! You! Flat-chested girl!
... face meet desk
Nice throw, do we say homerun now?

Ah shite, the wrong side get's reinforcements at, admittedly for them, exactly the right time.

Also, darn those cliffhangers, now I simply have to read the next chapter too.

Thanks for writing this.
Guest chapter 10 . 6/6/2017
Beneda DID it! Wooot
Good job.
And what marvelous dramatic timing, seriously this only happens in Nerima.

But the most important thing of this chapter.
Tux boy is quite awesome here.

And before everyone is totally exhausted the 'real' enemy shows up.

Great, thank you for this.
Guest chapter 9 . 6/6/2017
Here you show that Genma is not THAT much of a bastard.
He never attacked Ranma to the point of breaking, merely enough to reinforce Ranma's beliefs and ideals.
And now, when faced with something far too big to fight against, something that will surely result in ignoble death, he finds that he actually did raise Ranma well.
That Ranma elevates others above his own comfort, that his son believes and is willing to suffer to protect the weak.
It actually is quite a good scene.
And at the end it shows that Genma is willing to survive.
He is ready to run at a moments notice.

And the scene about the senshi coming together to strategise and debunk rumours. Hilarious if you think about it while the atmosphere is quite serious.

Thank you for this chapter.
Guest chapter 6 . 6/4/2017
The composition of this chapter.
It is beautiful.
The concept is not horribly complicated.
Letting one group draw conclusions, while in scene changes you show how utterly incorrect they are.
Yet you, you executed it so brilliantly.
Thank you for showing us how to incorporate things like chapter composition in good story telling.
It is a pleasure to read.
