I can't wait until his mother is introduced into this. It will be fascinating to see her interact with a truly manly Ranma; not just a pervert but a young man worthy of respect.

Out of all the contenders, I always liked Ukyo the best. She and akane seemed to be the only one that forms a friendship of sorts with Ranma

I admit that having a beta reader would be a positive thing for your stories. My sons read my writings and they are deadly when it comes to mistakes. *chuckles*
I only read the manga, never having the opportunity to watch the anime. Even then, Akane was not my favorite person. Spoiled doesn't begin to cover it even if she WAS Takahashi Rumiko's first and final choice to gain Ranma. Kodachi, Shampoo, and Ukyo seemed more than a bit on the selfish side in that they never seemed to consider Ranma, only themselves. Then again, there's a lot of people I know that act like that in real life.
A nice, relaxing story that gives me quite a few laughs. Thanks for sharing. Update when you can.

It was a great chapter, but the ending kind of left a bad taste in my mouth. After everything Akane did to Ranma, she's got some nerve falling for him. That brat doesn't have the right to even be crushing on him.

Totally agree with you about Ukyo, the issue is present for the majority of the Characters in Ranma 1/2.

Dont know what you got planned for Ranma and who the hell he ends up with.
But I sure as hell hope he isnt going to end a sleazebag opting for a giant harem, that would no doubt make him a sleaze and pretty much honourless, sure some of the will get hurt if he chose one but thats pretty natural and undertood fact. He has officially become somekind of playboy now.
As it seems now, its would be obvious everyone will root for Kasumi to be with Ranma.
There has been very scarce Ranma x Ukyo fics or Kodachi. I just hope he ends with someone rare or someone unexpected.
Sure Ukyo was obsessive in Manga but Xian Pu and Kodachi was too, they arent saints either and its not like Ukyo tortured or hurt Kasumi.
Ukyo's father did not even care one tiny bit for her and she had to live rest of her life pretending to be a boy ( her fathers punishment to her ). It was unfair of you to set Ukyo for a bash.
Who is going to PAY UKYO back?...Genma was the one to steal but Ranma did not even set an arrangement to at least make his father give her back...he kinda discided its not his fault and decided to ignore alltogether, he could have at least make Genma set for her to pay her back. That was the least he could have done.

I've been following your story for a while now, and I love it. It's too bad that Akane is such a stubborn, uncute, violent maniac. Doesn't even realize that she's falling for Ranma. But that's how she is in the manga as well.
I actually have a suggestion for Ranma's training. He's got Karate, Aikido, Boxing, and now, Tae Kwon Do. You really aught to consider Kyusho-Jitsu. It's a style that utilizes pressure points to down the opponent quickly and efficiently. It also molds really well with Aikido. I've got a little training in Aikido Kyusho Aki, a style that merges both. It's really neat learning about the various ways of manipulating pressure points. I think it would work well with your version of Ranma.

No one ever gives uyko love but still good

Nice little chapter. Maybe you could have extended the date a bit more. Seems a bit rushed to me.
| Weretiger Marduk chapter 29 . 3/10
Great story. Your prose needs a little work (sentence structure, word choice, that sort of thing), but I like the dialogue and the flow of the story, even if its a little fast. When do you intend for ranma to start learning Ki attacks? And will the shiatsu become a more commonplace technique?

A bit short, but at the very least you wrapped up a couple of things.

I read this chapter for a second time and it was awesome! Man I was worried for a moment there as I thought Ranma was going to give Ukyo a beat down for what she did but I'm glad that didn't' happen. Ukyo is one of my favorite characters of the series and to be honest she is a victim like Ranma since Genma is the one who caused the dishonor between the two, but I would have to agree with another reviewer. Ukyo's father is to blame as well since he was too trusting of Genma and did nothing to help Ukyo and made her carry on the burden of hunting Ranma down. But it still didn't give Ukyo the right to kidnapped Kasumi. I will admit Ukyo is over-possessive about the engagement and had constantly reminded Ranma about it in canon.
As for Akane she is now starting to realize that she just missed out on a great guy like Ranma and it won't be long till it's Ranma says he want's Kasumi as his fiancée and I can bet Shampoo and Kodachi will be part of the harem soon. If anything do Soun should be chewing out Genma for his stupid ass making Ranma and Ukyo engaged but no he just sits around crying instead of acting like a parent. I hope Ranma or Happosai beat the crap out of Genma for what happened to Kasumi since it was his fault this happened.
I wonder what will happen to Ukyo now though? In all honesty I wish that she and Ranma could be friends again but after this I'm not sure. This is getting good and I hope to see the next update soon.
Also when you get the chance I hope you check out my Ranma crossover soon.
Good Luck Dragon6.

Well, well, soldier...
Well, these latest 2 chapters sure have been hectic, huh? Damn!
So, Ukyo lost her return match with Ranma, and was butthurt so she crossed the line and kidnapped Kasumi, and then, Ranma burned his bridges with her in a pretty nasty fashion. I like it. Ukyo sure makes for a big heel here. LOL
Also, the Tendo family is pretty much split into 2 factions: Ranma's Waifus and the A**holes. LOL
Hey, at least Ranma and Kasumi went on a lovely date. That was very nice! :3
And then...hmmm, that was an interesting ending, yes.
Great work! Keep it up!
Update ASAP! That's an order!
Semper-Fi! Carry on!

always pleased to see another chapter.
As for Ukyo, from what I can recall she too was obsessed with Ranma in her own way so I don't see her actions as being that OOC. Just different.
Looking forward to the next installment
