I don't know if you've been told be other reviewers already, but I don't think "shinai" is the correct term for a bamboo practice sword... I could've sworn it was a "bokken", although I might be mistaking that for a *wooden* practice sword as compared to a *bamboo* practice sword (I don't claim to be an expert in Japanese, lol)

I hope you put up a sequel...I really want to read more!

Oh man! This is ridiculously good! So much concentrated awesomeness that I don't know what to comment on! Characterizations were perfect given their situations! My one complaint is a simple one, I wish you wouldn't put author's notes in the middle of the story... It disrupts the flow, and while shenanigans is a wonderful word and very fitting for Keigo, I can wait until the end of the chapter to see your reasons for using it.
BUT that one minor complaint is nothing compared to the Absolute Joy that Filled My Soul when I read this.
If you write a sequel, I will watch it religiously.

D: Aw, Poor Ichi... It's over. Darn, it was good. I'd love to read a sequel if you decide to write it.
Good job! You did some dandy fine work.

OH YES a sequel would be fantastic...besides you can't just let it end with Ichigo all emo..that wont do. So sequel pwease with Ichigo troubles and triumphant return to glory...or deeper into despair w/e way you decide to write it, I'll read it!

There's a sequel? You amazing person! -hugs-
I really liked this story, even if I did pick it up late. xD The ending is pretty good, leaving it open or closed for a sequel. I hope there will be one though. x3
I look forward to readin' more of your stuff, and congrats on finishing! Doesn' it feel like a weight's been lifted? xD

This story was so good, it deserves a sequel!
| Sakiku chapter 10 . 6/24/2008
erh - this ending was kind of... sudden... Last chapter, it took you only half a page to exile Ichigo from Seireitei, and now it's already 80 years later for him?
A short chapter about the time immediately afterwards would have been nice. I can't quite believe that Ichigo accepts this decision so quietly - if he doesn't want to fight for himself, he'd at least be concerned about the others' fates. What about Ishida's, Mizuiro's, and all the other humans' reactions? What about the other shinigami's reactions (Rukia, Renji, etc.)?
And even if you skip those immediate reactions, it would have been nice if after this 80-year-time-skip, Ichigo would have at least hinted at what had happened to the others. After all, they were nakama, and I doubt that Ichigo would have forgotten about them.
The only reason I can imagine for such an abrupt ending would be that this whole story was only a prologue for another one that continues in the future where either Ichigo is once again approached by Soul Society, or where you follow his great-grandson's explorations in Soul Society.
But otherwise, this is a nice chapter, and I can really see Ichigo watching over his family. I especially liked the scene where he tells his great-grandson that, once in soul society, he will learn about the name 'Kurosaki Ichigo'. Is this a hint as to what is going to happen in the sequel?

SEQUEL! If you don't make a sequel, my head will explode! D:
Poor Ichi, he's all lonely! Why would you end the story like this? *sob*
| eternalsailorsolarwind chapter 10 . 6/23/2008
One vote for the sequel! This was a wonderful story, and I will definitely miss it.
| hu3long2 chapter 10 . 6/23/2008
Please do continue with a sequel- this just cries out for one- I really want to know what's happened in SS in the past years and to all of Ichigo's comrades!
Thank you for sharing this story!

This is a really great story. It's well written and exciting :D I love how close Ichigo's group is. It's really amazing.
I love it and can't wait till the next chapter! :3

Good Job! Yeah, even if it is sad I don't think it would have been as realistic if the council hadn't banned him. It's just not their style to bend for words.
You did a great job! Please update soon.
