|Reviews for New Century Zero: Season Off|
| blackarrowprime94 chapter 1 . 5/2
first I want to say awesome story, I've read it all the way through.
just a few constructive criticisms though, hope you don't mind
the liger zero uses the strike laser claw other than the facsimile the shadow fox uses
BIT AND LEENA!
're good at writing but you could work on making the chapters link together better
ad time settings should be clearly defined as should flashbacks and scene breaks

I think I cried when I checked my email to find an update from FFnet saying this story had been updated. Sort of a kneejerk reaction, seeing that after so long a story I enjoyed so much finally came to a conclusion. I don't know if anything can really match the feeling of seeing that a fic you thought was never going to be updated finally has been. It really fills you with a kind of joy.
Still. it's always kind of bittersweet seeing a story I've enjoyed for so long finally come to an end. It's been three and a half years since I started reading this fic. Three and a half years, can you imagine? I was a completely different person then. I've gone through three different pennames, even. Gojiralee? That seems so silly to me nowadays.
Honestly, I love this fic as much now, at the end, as I did when I first started reading. I started reading it because I happened to be bored and couldn't find any other decent zoids fics at the time that I hadn't already read. I wasn't even a really big fan of NC0 at the time, but, you know, beggars can't be choosers. And I'm very glad I decided to read it, because it reminded me so much of everything I loved when I watched NC0 as a child.
I am so excited to see that you have gotten this far. You've accomplished every aspiring writer's dream simply by completing this story. I am so happy to have followed it this far and to have done my small part in helping you grow as a writer. It's been a lot of fun. Congratulations for this fantastic accomplishment.
As for the conclusion itself, I loved it. It has its flaws, but hell, they're easy to ignore in the face of so much fun. The cheesiness is well placed - this is Zoids, after all. We're all at least a bit self-aware. I grinned so wide when I caught the OJR reference. And I definitely think it was a good idea to end it on just the Blitz team - after all, they're the stars, aren't they? This story was always theirs more than anything else, and they certainly deserved the focus at the end.
(I just almost closed out of this tab and panicked thinking I had lost all of this review. I wouldn't want to have to write all this sappy, glowing praise all over again).
You have an amazing ability to replicate NC0's tone. I hope that if you choose to continue writing, I can keep on reading your work. I don't really know what else to say other than that I have absolutely loved following this story, so here's the part where I get to be the cheesy one and say "See you on the battlefield."

Was a very good story, thanks

Not sure why Bit and Pierce, she does consider him a kid, so I can't see the connection, oh by the way Leon's shield liger tripped over Bit's truck. Once again, tiny detail, just thought I should point that out. Still a good story, keep it up.

This good, after a couple chapters I'm impressed, the story sort of feels similar so, old fans like myself can enjoy. Just a one thing, when Leena fires her one woman artillery barrage she only says Wild Weasal Total Assault, she doesn't add Unit to the end. Not a big deal, but just something that bugged be a little.

Oh my God. You killed Laon right after I started to appreciate his character ;-; excuse me while I wonder how you managed to make me love a character I detested in the show. Also, I'll have you know this fic took me 3 days to finish XD I rather liked your look in to the concept of wild zoids in the episodes where Bit took a little vacation (kind of wished for a little more of it, though your story telling is just so phenomenal I forgot about it for the rest of the episodes D) AND REALLY in other fics I hated Bit/Leena NOW Thanks to you I ship that on all seven seas okay XD everything about everyone's character is just so great, I read most everyone's speaking parts in their voices from the show and imagined their actions as they would appear in the anime w This fic is simply wonderful so far and I'll wait patiently (or not so patiently D) for THE LAST BATTLE OF LIGER-Y AWESOMENESS 8D also sorry for the randomness of this review, I had to summarize all my thoughts D

I am so glad you're back! Somehow this story got off of my alert list and I didn't get an email. Thank goodness I popped in the Zoids section today.
Ha. Welp, Laon. He's always been the one who was morally grey. If anyone was going to get caught up and everything and get killed, it would be him. I'm glad we'll see some details about him in the next chapter! I imagine Oscar and Steve will have sad reactions to this. :(
Harry's scene was touching too. I appreciate that you avoided the clichéd 'saving Leena' thing, even if it would have been appropriate. You have redeemed him for me, haha.
As always, I loved the fight scenes. The Wild Eagle was my particular favorite in this chapter. And, as I've said before, the way you add little details into the story really make it; I enjoyed the rivals that were introduced in this chapter. It continually amazes me how you can expand the characters this much and it still is so canon feeling to me.
Annnnddd, I'm super flattered that you consider "Consumed" the best Vega story you've read. Thanks for the shout-out! :D
Best of luck with chapter 26! I eagerly await it!

First let me say welcome back. I literally spit my drink everywhere when I saw that this fic had been updated lol. Let me also say that no this story has not been ruined by your absence. I did have to glance back at the last chapter, but that wasn't a bad thing as it was such a masterful chapter.
This was a busy chapter, and in the beginning the flow seemed kinda choppy, but by the end it seemed like you were back in the swing of things. I get a feeling Laon's final words may play a big part in resolving the conflict... and hard to believe he bit the dust. I actually thought he would survive and Harry would bite the dust. Speaking of Harry, I agree with you about him. I could not stand Harry in the series but this fic has completely redeemed him in my eyes. That's funny to me cause you do such a phenomenal job of keeping everyone in character so it would only make sense for me to dislike Harry. Part of my dislike for him though may have been that I was rooting for Bit to woo Leena and since that occurred here, I have no reason to root against him.
I could go on and on about how great a job you did, but I'm getting tired so I'm gonna wrap this up by simply saying thank you for another exceptional chapter. Now let's not make everyone wait half a year for the next one lol.

Hi, good to see you back
Reading this really makes me want to try and create the time to go back over all the rest of the story and get my bearings in it again (and not just because of the lapse, i had been struggling a bit even before this chapter to remember who some of the people where and what they were doing).
I have to say that I did really enjoy this chapter and the increasingly dark atmosphere it creates. The entire Oscar/Toros scene did this really well with the (as i read it not sure if intended) almost comical dialogue and fight scene so abruptly ended in such a menacing way. Have to say that the way that you did the characters is also really great, particularly Jamie although I'm not sure if you were a little too obvious in the way you described it.
I also loved the Naomi scene and I cant wait to see how it what it will transition into in the last story.
I guess i should also comment on the last two (I think) chapters since i missed those ones, and I have to say that they were also really good at building the tension towards the ending. (also i was thinking zoid eve was involved in the revival, just couldn't figure out how)
OK i think thats all I wanted to say so once again well written and I can't wait to see how this one ends

So great to read another chapter. So much action. Also the Brad and Naomi scene, so good! Can't wait for more! Love this story!

Okay, yes and yes. I am surprised Fuma is already dead and I shuddered at Koga's brain...after I reread it. Haha, it's like you planned that or something...
Anyway, yes I'm also wondering about the Ligers.
This chapter flowed very smoothly and swiftly, even though it was incredibly intense and there was a lot going on. I really felt like I was watching the end of a grand anime season. So, kudos. If there was ever to be a sequel to Century Zero, I hope it's this.
I thought it was interesting that Vega listened when Bit told him to go home. Maybe the kid is starting to grow up and maybe he looks up to Bit, a little bit? (Hah.)
I loved the ending scene. It was perfect. There's no better way to bring them together.
Your comment that the dying will continue irks me...who will it be in the next chapter?
| randomcat23 chapter 23 . 7/24/2013
Where to begin...Well, I must say I chuckled loudly and cheered when I saw Red Bull return. So, yay! Thanks for that.
And what a perfect way to set up the climax! I'm on edge now. This final battle you've constructed is perfect; beastly Zoid, plenty of tension, and of course there's going to be tons of traitors. That's how these things work.
I love it.
Also, props to Doc for making a shrine to the Ultrasaurus. Gosh, I love that man.
Lastly, about Laon: I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Good job, honestly fanfiction writers like you are hard to find, we don't see many great writers on this website. Perfect grammar, structure, plot development, and mainly the characters, they're personalities are spot on! Please update, and chapter 24 was awesome, Leena and Bit scene was the best!
| john doe chapter 24 . 6/29/2013
Wow. That was awesome! If there is such a think as a perfect chapter, this was it. The action, the humor, and even the romance were all perfect and the flow for this chapter was fantastic. If it was possible everything surpassed my expectations for this chapter. Honestly, the only negative thing about this chapter is that it ended. I know, I know I'm being greedy but it's only cause this story is so amazing. Also, yes the creepy brain segment did make me do a double take to ensure I read it right cause that's just freaky. Obviously I loved the kiss, but my favorite part was actually Bit's interaction and description of Vega...jk I loved that part but the kiss is what every body's been waiting on and you didn't disappoint. Sometimes those romantic moments feel forced or rushed in a fan fic but you did a masterful job of making everything progress at a nice rate so that the moment was not a letdown. O and I do wonder about the Liger's magical healing but I'm sure that will be explained next time. All in all fantastic job.
| Player Zero chapter 24 . 6/28/2013
Wow, Lots of action in that chapter.
I liked the last scene the best. I really liked the setting they were in, so much emotion!
Hope Bit and Leena be OK in the next chapters.
