Loving the story so far. One hit point left was hilarious. Keep up the writing!

Well that was a thing. I'm wondering how I missed this chapter for almost a month (considering I checked for more at least a week or two ago), when the 'last updated' bit says Feb 14th.

I can roll with this. After the whole Saffron affair it was only a matter of time until Ranma started using lethal force on people; Mousse, Ryoga and the Kuno's spring to mind. And I did catch in the first chapter that the Amazons were hunting Ranma.
Though that made me curious about Shampoo's reaction to Ranma's 'betrayal' of the amazons.
So, on to what I've been most curious about: What exactly happened between Ranma, his parents and the Tendo's when the curse started acting up? You've hinted at it, but, given Ranma's insistence over not using the Saotome name, I'd think it was more than just a don't come back until you're cured kind of conversation.
Perhaps a dream sequence in a later chapter...Please attempts puppy dog eyes: rolls a critical failure

Was I the only one that found it funny that Ranma was lecturing someone about asking for help?
Oh, and if I remember correctly, Ranma stopped needing the Dragon Whisker and the end of that story arc. Which was long before his fight against Saffron. He probably kept the pigtail out of habit, more than any other reason.

I don't know about Nonohara but I thought I caught a slight Starwars homage, "...as if the wallets of millions of men cried out in despair, and then went silent."
So, was the "despair" caused by the thought of Ranma-chan working for Chao or the fact that she turned down that job.
There is another question I'd like to ask, but I think I'll wait until I've read the rest of the posted chapters. In case it got answered somewhere in them.

The first part of this chapter is good, latter part of this chapter is fucking awesome. I couldn't possibly approve harder than I already do without some serious magic or psychic powers.
I especially like how Ranma is written as skilled, strong etc without going into senseless uber-powered fanwanking territory, and I especially like that she took a critical blow there... It really shows that Shit Just Got Real. Not that lopping off Medic's head didn't show that, but reading how the protagonist gets skewered Sword Rain-style hammers it home in a way killing some random mook simply doesn't.
The "angry protective Oni girlfriend contingency" was a nice touch, as well. And the Demonic Hellwasp of Doom? That's just icing on the cake. Giant bugs are freaking creepy (and all sorts of cool if they're on your side).
And the "I'VE STILL GOT ONE HIT-POINT LEFT!" thing was... wow, I laughed hard at that. Very nice.
Now I just have to hope the next batch of updates isn't 5 months away, but if they are... Well, I can wait.

Cliffhang'd! Don't care about that though, just happy to see an update. You know what they say, good things come to those who wait and all that.

Well written as always, but I find it difficult to believe that some random Amazon OCs could take on Ranma when he can take on Takamichi with relative ease, when not even at full power.
Good details, well written.

It's a minor stylistic comment and you can ignore it if you want, but there's a part in chapter 7 where you had Evangeline speaking to Ranma and Konoka. The end of the one paragraph ["Fufufu... I knew you'd make waves, but this? This is absolutely grand."] and the beginning of the next ["Have a seat," the blonde offered, her mirth clear in the smirk she continued to wear.] has no response from the pair mixed in.
I think a reply or non-verbal action by either Ranma or Konoka might have been more natural. Even a signal by Evangeline to keep them from interjecting or an observation by her on how they are reacting would have worked there.
Like I mentioned, however, it's a rather ticky-tack point and not really necessary. Just mentioning it since that's the thought I had while reading that passage and thinking about the give and go flow of illustrating a conversation.
In chapter 8, is it just me or were you referencing the Dead Alewives with the skit between Ranma and Mana?
I couldn't stop picturing Mana asking about Cheetos and Mountain Dew or for Ranma to tell Konoka that they couldn't stick around for questions because they needed to go attack the darkness with Magic Missiles.
Also, did you ever mention that the dart was removed from Setsuna's buttocks? Unless you're saving it for when she's more lucid to embarrass her, it'd be bad if she inadvertently rolled over and snapped the tip that's still lodged in her rump.
Perhaps she gets a commemorative cute band-aid from Konoka that she can treasure for this potential reconciliation point in their relationship? It could serve as a quirky version of a sticker photo that young girls or certain dorm managers from another series like to collect. _
"I think she's getting worse, if that's even possible," Mana told Ranma with an exasperated sigh. She took the redhead's rueful smile as a sign to continue and she freely obliged. "Setsuna bought a frame for that used band-aid."
"Well that's certainly..." Ranma thought about her wording carefully and tried to ignore the flat stare she was receiving that dared her to come up with a neutral term, "...unique?"
The mercenary scoffed and kicked her artfully dodging companion on the shin.
