Um, Cat-Ranma can't be a surpressed evil demon, otherwise it couldn't act as an uninhibited barometer of Ranma's true feelings as it's known to do.

I highly doubt Akane is at merely a brown belt level despite her interrupted training. You don't become the best normal martial artist in an entire ward of Tokyo and have the skills to beat up dozens of opponents at once without reaching at least black belt level. It actually shows just how talented she really is to reach that level after years of nothing but self-taught training.

I really don't like this Ranma/Ami pairing that you're leading towards. Ranma and Akane have still become friends and actually get along much better than in Ranma canon thanks to the tweaks in this AU, so I can't see why they can't still fall in love like in canon. It's just a shame that Ranma is starting to fall for Ami instead of Akane just because circumstances in this AU have him meeting Ami first and spending the most time with her. Ami is just too meek and passive to suit Ranma as his girlfriend, like with Kasumi. He needs a spitfire like Akane.

This is pretty interesting. I really like how you delve into the deeper psychological issues of both series.
I think you're underestimating Ami's IQ. I have an IQ of 133, and I'm nowhere near as brilliant as Ami is depicted.

Don't be too hard on Ryouga. He is the same as Ranma when it comes to being backwater despite not having an old man like Genma... and being targeted for food as a helpless piglet is just too cruel a fate.

Actually during the age of Roman Imperium pink was considered to be a manly colour ( pink, hairless body of muscled gladiators and as such)... kinda odd that it has become kinda the opposite in recent history.
What's the fuzz about IQ anyways? It only shows the cognitive ability and not the intelligence... my own score is just a point or two below that, but I know people people with lesser scores and more intelligence (or maybe they just study?). Personally I think Ranma himself is classified as a genius himself ( which makes it above 140), however almost all of his genius is spent on martial arts
A common mistake about Akane is that fans think she hates the male gender as whole. What/who she hates with passion are "Boys" (Kuno, the morning horde and Ranma when he screws up), but she has no problem with "Men" ( , Ranma so long as he does not screw up).

This far it was a nice story. I'd like to suggest you read the other (in my humble opinion) readable Sailor-Ranma crossover series "the Dark Lords of Nerima". Sure in the latest sequel it follows "Rule of Super-powered" but it's still great to read.

Technically Ranma is only one generation removed from the time only remembered in movies and wuxia novels. By that era's standards Ranma is pretty normal martial artist (though a very skilled and talented one), but in the modern world his ONLY future is it is (in the original series) is to start a dojo, if he does not want to live like Genma and Happosai that is.
Akane is the weakest of the bunch and severely lacks on the most important aspect of "anything goes", flexibility in thinking. Also She is a modern girl, and the way I see it to learn Anything Goes one must follow 300 years old teaching methods which would ruin a modern lifestyle.
And I don't think Soun purposefully did not teach Akane, after all she was supposed to be master of Tendo style of Anything Goes to unite schools. I think after death of his wife Soun fell into his own pit of despair, and literally let go.
BTW I like Shampoo (she reminds me of several characters I like for several different reasons), so I hope you give her a chance to learn more about modern world too. Right now she kinda lives in the same "place" as Ranma when it comes to social interaction though thanks to her great grandmother she is not as bad as Ranma.

You did well.

Grand. Glorious. Interesting. Good.

... well if Nodoka was not crazy Ranma wouldn't have been born in first place. Unlike Tendo Soun, other than outstanding martial arts skill and ingenuity in matters martial arts (creating martial arts skills is no easy feat, even if they are not as over-powered as thousand fists sea and mountain) Saotome Genma is a plight upon humankind, a thief and otherwise NOT a proper husband... I still can't figure out how he managed to marry Nodoka...
