I feel that too many people put Izzy through anger. But that's just how I feel.

Wow... this story was amazing and I have to compliment the originality and creativity of it all. I read this in one sitting (that's why I'm up 4 in the morning) and I also read your Gatekeepers parody, "Tai Kamiya Presents Gatekeepers". I'll comment on both starting with Grim Reality.
You brought up an interesting issue at the end of the the story. It's kind of like the Chobits and persocom concept. Technically, the entire thing really did happen and you have to admit that somewhere inside every character involved, they had to remember it. It can't just dissapear, can it? It would be helpful if you clear that up. Furthermore,I justed wanted to agree with you on some of things you said about the destiny and all. Personally, I believe it exists, but I wonder if such a thing could be changed and if it were, what the consequences could be for it.
On a different note, I read Tai Kamiya Presents Gatekeepers months ago and revisited it today after watching the Gatekeepers anime again. I have to say that just plain fun reading and thank you for it. Keep up the good work.

Geese. it sucks that the AA still got something out of it in the end. After everything the gang did, the AA still comes out of it with the one thing that matters to them.
A money-making reality series.
It was never about the anime characters, was it? It was all about the AA, and everything they went through, good and bad, out for everyone to see.
A timely end to the AA, though not the most pleasurable one in reference to all of the fans reading this (including yours truly).
Hm. there's a reason to read this again. Figure out which AA member portrays me. That ought to be interesting.
Anyway, that's all for this review. Great fanfic. your best work yet!

| Mousse12 chapter 16 . 2/18/2003
Excellent Series. I usually don't read anything that's not comedy, but I decided to give this a try, and personally I was very impressed.I probably missed a lot of crap, since i only read mole 2 before this, not to mention the fact that i had never seen a single episode of digimon or cardcaptors in my life, though i did manage to decipher the main gist of it, i think. I am primarily a Ranma Otaku, and I did see some Ranma-related mistakes you made that i would just like to inform you of.
1) It's Ryoga Hibiki, not Habiki
2) Bakusai Tenketsu is the correct spelling for the technique
3) Mousse should've beaten Matt. Now, I know it was probably for the fic , but the main mistake i noticed is that when Mousse was turned into a duck, you had him try to tackle Matt. That is not Mousse's style. You forget that Mousse can fling knives in his duck form as well as his human form, he should've flown up, as much out of reach as possible, and flung a few knives at Matt and whatever his partner was. And he would not miss from glasses falling off, because his glasses NEVER fall off when he is in duck form. Believe me, I have seen all of the episodes released in america, and have read practically all of the manga.
Anyway, I still think the fic is great, but why exactly did Jeri and Tenchi win? And what happened to Ranma during all this? What was he doing? I loved your work on this and mole 2, in fact i read mole 2 before i even knew what the mole was, and it was your fic that led me to watch the mole: Celebrity Hawaii, on TV. It would be nice to do another mole, though, but i guess since AA is gone. Cant wait for your latest work, I hope it's a comedy! If you can, please reply back for any comments and/or answers to questions. I always like the people i review to answer me back! Seeya!

I love this ending but could you just write the second ending for us to see how Tenchi and Jeri whould of won and the problems? Great Story.
| rebeccag239 chapter 16 . 2/6/2003
This was a great fic
I liked the end too
| Yami chapter 16 . 2/5/2003
A wondreful end to a wonderful story. Theres nothing else I can really say.
| Daneel Rush chapter 16 . 2/5/2003
You couldn't have said it better. Grim, but fantastic. It was the perfect mixture of what I had already expected to see wih a few surpise I definitely wasn't waiting for. I really liked Manny at the very a way, he was right, but it's just a matter of interpretation. I leave to think about it, but I'm already looking foward to your next stories.
P.D. I'm still waiting for chaper 4 of "Level 1: Worlds".
| CHROMUS chapter 16 . 2/4/2003
Well, well, an ending I certainly didn't expect, but it works very well.
I can't really say much more about this series, all I can say is well done.
One deep angsty series done, hopefully the Anime-mazing race will bring the smiles back. Go Arp!
| Jenna D chapter 16 . 2/3/2003
Duuuuude. It's finally over. I liked the ending afterwards. Very open, rather satisfying though. Very good work. Rock on, man. ~J~
| Mara Kurousagi chapter 16 . 2/3/2003
It's the end of the AA as we know it, and I feel... pretty darn optimistic about the whole thing actually. Cliffhangers and all, I really think things turn out okay... I hope.
Mike had better not touch that plug, or we'll have to pull the plug on him! ...Although that'll likely happen anyway...
Go inside! Go inside, go inside, go inside!
Crud, crud, crud... If Gary wants to prove he's as good as those cheerleaders always claimed, this would be the perfect place to show some real backbone...
Hey, one time I'm happy to see that guy! Who woulda thought?
Oooh, armed digidestined on the loose.
Manny walked right into that one... the sick, twisted creep.
He's the one who should die!
Do it! Do it!
Now this is one heck of a standoff. And the one playing mediatior is the last one I'd expect...
Okay, that went great so far, but now what about the others?
Only he would want to get Kodachi's phone number...
Considering what he thinks happened didn't happen, then he isn't really witholding information, right?
Please, no. Make her one of the good guys again...
S-setting and D-setting? Is that why they acted so oddly? It sounds like a twisted sort of mind control...
...Oh man... How can he be so cold? Poor Akane...
Good one, Barb.
Oooh, a bittersweet kiss between series-crossed lovers! Swoon...
Too bad there isn't much time for an emotional reunion right now...
Izzy the Cardcaptor... Now there's an eeevil idea for a fanart...
So it's over, just like that... Sorta, anyway. Hard to believe it. Somehow, it doesn't seem fair... I assumed that the end of the AA meant that at least one of them would recieve the ultimate punishment... And we all know who I kept nominating for that honor.
Still... it's bittersweet to think that for all they went through, this is how it ended up. Are you sure you can't be convinced to write an epilouge showing how they came out...? Nope, better not, 'cause then you lose that intepetation thing, right?
Another reality fic, sans AA? Might be interesting to check out when it goes up... Just so long as whoever's in charge isn't as rotten as the AA proved to be.

My god, that was just great. I somehow had the feeling that Shougai was going to be released using the revolt, although I hadn't guessed that bit about the changes.
I'm sure I'm not the only person who will think of this, but the future is indeed VERY grim for the Tamers. We last saw Rika on life support, and if all injuries sustained pass into the actual series, then she wouldn't be able to live without the machines that DON'T EVEN EXIST IN THE DIGITAL WORLD. This would mean that Rika would die the second she got back to her own reality, Renamon would be on her own, and Sakuyamon would never exist to save the day and stem the flow of Chaos fast approaching the Tamers in "The Song of Sakuyamon". Thus, the series takes on a particularly grim ending, although Jeri doesn't suffer nearly as much.
I loved that bit you did near the end about dubbing nearly killing Sakura, very clever. And I can guess about what you're doing with Madison, since Sakura went back to the dubbed series with a subbed personality.
I'm not asking for a sequel to this, I'm just asking for some kind of continuation. Specifically how the Tamers universe is altered by Rika's status. Keep writing, it's shockers like this that put you on my favourites list.
| Javeman chapter 16 . 2/2/2003
Great ending, man. I'm actually happy you ended it that way because, even though I prefer Taiora over Sorato, it's still good to leave the series unaltered. Clearly one of the best fics ever written, congrats!

Suddenly getting ten times darker than it already was. Woah, man. I mean, dude. ~J~
