Man, mind control? Premonition of death? MIND CONTROL? DEATH?!
Man, nightmere wars indeed...ugh!
This was a great chapter, I really admire the action scenes.
I know I've said this before, but seriously, it takes skill to write such in depth action scenes and not have them be repetitive. You vary the vocabulary and language, leading us to the thrilling conclusion (or cliffhanger, whichever one it is...).
I will definitely look to you when it comes to advice on writing action scenes :)
Great work, Ankoku! Keep on writing! You're almost at 50! Gah, historic moments abound!

Yoko...turned...into a freaking hedgehog! Nuff said.
Ha ha, but in all seriousness this was a very good chapter. I like how each chaos god has a certain name that connects with their weapon and sort of exaggerates their main personality trait. Pretty creative character creation there.
Definitely an ironic battle too, it's funny how much his 'family' teases him when sometimes they're doing exactly what they choose tojiro to do. Heh...
But yes, cool chapter, it was pretty nice of you to give yoko more chances to fight, I appreciate that.

Ah, you've updated. I better start reading...
Pretty awesome chapter! I'm glad Yoko and Tojiro are FINALLY reunited! Man, that took a long time...
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 32 . 8/21/2012
Wow...this might be one of my favorite chapters as well! I loved it!
The whole history of the nightmare form and all it's power was explained well and is very intriguing. I really like tojiro's speech at the end. Truly great dialogue and responses there!
Excellent chapter, Ankoku. This one really shows how far tojiro has come and is a perfect calm to the storm as the race to find the nightmare scythe begins...
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 31 . 8/19/2012
Wow, so now tojiro has to train. I never thought I'd see the day...
Really amazing battle sequences as usual. I know I say this a lot, but I really mean it when I tell you that you write some of the best battle scenes. You're able to keep the whole batyle thrilling and interesting with your varied vocabulary and various sentence structures for carrying out different attacks. For a person who's writing is roughly 65% or more action based this is a big deal. Also, your work with dialogue is always inventive and engaging, it's truly one of my favorite
Part of reading your work because everyone is IC and tojiro always says things with PURPOSE. You can tell it's important...
Wow, tojiro hugged someone of his own free will?! That's life changing right there...
Really good chapter, it will be intriguing seeing tojiro train to get stronger. I wish it didn't have to be so...fatal. He gets enough of that in regular fights...
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 30 . 8/7/2012
Wow, intense four-way battle! Really epic and interesting dynamic worked in as Tojiro works with Kasumi to stop an obsessed demon god and bounty hunter.
Excelent work as usual, Ankoku! :D
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 29 . 7/31/2012
This was an excellent three way battle. Very impressive, rivals and an angered beast...
Very powerful moments with yoko calling out tojiro and now it ended with two powered up rivals and a showdown that was inevitable along with being predictable.
Really good chapter! Man, you're updating like the wind! I will catch up, nonetheless!
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 28 . 7/29/2012
this was another brutal and epic chapter! I loved the starting conversationband revelations revealed with yoko and tojiro. Really great scene...
Another hyped up fight with the werehog. I never enjoy these battles...it really is unfair for tojiro...
Wow, I can't tell if yoko is insane or not, but she definitely has guts.
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 27 . 7/27/2012
Ah HA! 0_0 I knew it, I knew it, I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!
Yes, I KNEW that kenji was tojiro! The similarities and form of speech were just too obvious for him to be someone else, ha!
I'm surprised he waited so long to tell her. He he, can you imagine the look on Orion's face if he heard him at this moment? XD
Ah...that aside, another brutal-robot bashing, drone busting chapter! Good action scenes as usual, though not as eye-catching as the zombie fights.
Of course 'kenji' would win...because of his unrelenting determination and attitude!
Now, yoko needs to get out of there and go back to her present timeline!
Great chapter! Amazing ending and diakogue exchange between yoko and kenji! :3
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 26 . 7/25/2012
Kasumi is back! Heck yeah! Finally, someone actually capable of fighting alongside tojiro without being an annoying standby that tojiro has to worry about protecting...
Ah, Malcom. Another hell god...he seems to be a little too confident. Watching him fall will be very pleasant indeed...
Hmmmm, since I'm trying to be more understanding of Orion I've come to this conclusion upon reading this chapter. I believe that Orion really despises tojiro, but I think all that hatred stems from confusion more then anything else. Orion truly believes that tojiro brings torment/ruin to all he meets in his journey...so seeing tojiro protect the innocent (that he has destroyed rightfully so much of in the past), well from Orion's point of view I guess this would be rather revolting and disgusting. like tojiro, Orion is very determined and won't let the demon get away unscathed. His prejudice prevents him from seeing the sense of honor in tojiro's actions and his pride prevents him from opening his narrow mind to new possibilities. Along with those flaws, Orion has a volatile personality which sort of leaves him behind in the self-control department. Well, I understand his motives...but I still don't really like him. Then again, sometimes I still don't like tojiro.
Anyway, I loved how you ended this chapter! It's a skewed two vs. two fight! Ah ha ha, that's definitely going to be awesome to read but next chapter we're switching back to Yoko. Darn, you switched right at the good part!
Ah well...great chapter nonetheless.
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 25 . 7/24/2012
You updated! Gah, ten more to go!
This was an awesome chapter! Zombie fights to the hearts content!
Tojiro's beliefs and proverbs...he never dismisses them. I was looking through my old reviews for this story and I found out that I my perspectives/opinion on tojiro's character has become a lot more positive then when I first started reading. Interesting...
Ugh, the bastard known as Orion returns. Man, I hate him...always have, always will. He gets on my nerves...
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 24 . 7/23/2012
Another well written chapter! Not much action this time around because now it's time for large mental realizations, legends, and the beginning of a prison break out in the works!
First will start with the subtle humor and banter in the beginning. Such a great start for an insightful chapter (it's always fun with sonic and shadow are brought into the mix).
The legend of the Seven Mages was really intriguing! I loved how they work into the equation, the creators of the chaos emeralds certainly had a large part to play in this saga's events. But paragon? That sounds like a really special place. The ultimate land between dimensions and it houses the last sage left standing, the creator of the red chaos emerald.
Yoko's conversation with Kenji definitely broke some barriers and brought even more realizations and insight to the table. Truly outstanding section. The comparisons/contrast between kenji and tojiro was palpable here. I swear kenji could be tojiro's reincarnation or something, they are like brothers or something...
The most dangerous chaos art is now placed in the match. It will definitely be an interesting fight for Kenji.
And tojiro verses zombies! That will be an interesting match to see...

Ah, a lover's duel. I say, this chapter was really well written.
you expressed their emotions quite well through the entire fight scene and yumi's kiss in the middle of it certainly shook things up.
I don't think tojiro is one to get surprised so I'd say the action just made him extremely angry...ha ha
Haruki's insight was nicely woven in at the end and I'm happy tojiro took some of it too heart. It was a touching moment.
Tojiro certainly carries a lot of burdens but with a past like his it's hard to say whether it's to late for him to seek redemption...
Ah, the chapter preview was even more eye-catching then usual. I better check it out.
Great chapter as usual, Ankoku!
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 22 . 7/22/2012
Another mindblowing chapter! I hate spiders, so the whole fight had a rather grotesque edge to it...
Whatever happened between tojiro and yumi must have been pretty serious...
Man, and he still has to fight her after trenching all of the spiders. Crazy...
| Justice Tokidoki chapter 21 . 7/22/2012
Jeez, who is this person? Gah, time for Tojiro to kick another demigod of death's butt!
The antics of the mortals he protects is golden. I can't tell if Ikko is a pervert of if he's generally stuck in situations where he can't help himself.
Ah, well of course Tojiro heals enough only to have to face a new enemy. And she seems like...an old lover perhaps?
I have a feeling the affection is only one-sided.
Great chapter as usual! Now, onto the next one!
