Sweet! I was shocked and pleased to see this second book come out so early after the first. Loved Beneda's power upgrade! In the first she was more a maiden in distress but not anymore. Great character development. Can we hope to see the other inner senshi?
And question: don't youma bleed (green if I recall from the anime)? Dust is for only when they die.

I just read through the first half of your story, kept me up all night reading it, and I just have to say wow that was one of the best reads I've ever found on this sight. The action was great, the situations that came up made me laugh incredibly hard and I was genuinely caught off guard and surprised by some things. I must say thank you for that wonderful story and I hope that this one can develop into something just as great!
Keep up the great work and please update again in the near future!

So... It resumes. Just a question: in the Sailor V manga, Minako had been in China for a brief period. Is there any chance for her to know the Joketsuzoku?

Woo! The Dark Lords Strike Back finally begins! I can't wait to see how this turns out!
| recyclablefoxx chapter 1 . 7/18/2011
wow, I love how you make the threat of the Negaverse and Metellia much more real and terrifying than the way the actual Sailor Moon series presented it. I look forwards to reading what you write next :)

Yay! The next arc of the story is out. I am a big fan of the original and am looking forward to seeing how this one develops. Even though I'm not a fan of Ranma/Akane. At least there hasn't been much focus on the relationships in this story.
The scenes with the gathering of the allies was nice to read. Can't wait for the next update.

Welcome back. I've been looking forward to this for a while.
Not wasting any time setting up the premise, are you? Looks like you got a good start going.
Since this is after the Ranma storyline, I take it this story will have even more outrageously overblown antics and battles than the last one, right?
Anyway, I look forward to the next part. Don't keep us waiting.

*sniffle* What happened to all of the Ryoga/Beneda fluffy? I mean, you built it in such a believable way! T-T Oh well, I guess I'll just have to stifle my sobs at a romance untold. - That being said, Akari is a good influence on Ryoga, even if he is a hypocritical jerk in the manga, so I can't complain.
- Anyway, great job on the chapter! I can't deny that this story is what I've been looking forward to the most- as recent stories go- and you definitly didn't disappoint!
here's to looking forward to your next chapter!
Thanks for writing!

So you came to the conclusion that all the adventures of Ranma 1/2 after meeting Taro comprised only 6 months? You hint that the situation with Herb was handled differently which I hope is the case. The events in the previous story would have had an effect and unless everything is predestined things would change a bit...also to just assume everything proceeds as normal would just be lazy, you're not lazy.
Anyways, great fight scene you had with Beneda. Utilizing the yen technique actually makes a lot of sense. She really steals the show here, as you have crafted a really cool character. The crush on the good doctor was an unexpected surprise and i'm curious where you might take that. I can't imagine Beneda would be too comfortable in admitting such feelings to herself...human relationships would be a little icky. Great drama to be had! "She herself had never managed to get human food much more than "passable"." I like this line because it shows she hasn't lost her connection to her birth(?) form.
Also good job on making the Jusenkyo area seem more alive and varied. All these alliances being made are really neat. Some of them are your own creations right? The Silk Lotus tribe in particular interested me.
If 6 months are past then that would mean Sailor moon has only just transformed into princess form right? The Dark Lords might not be quite as scary then.
I am looking forward to the next chapter. The last line was perfect in cultivating EXCITEMENT! Good luck on the next chapter (:

Well, I'm conflicted. I've been waiting for an update to this for a long time, but having read it I'm not exactly impressed. Part of the perceived problem is the sudden shift in pairing. Think of your story from the position of a reader. In our last interaction with these characters Beneda and Ryouga were developing feelings for each other, character development had taken place, and you had set interesting things in motion that you were going to explore in the next part of the story. And now all of a sudden it's months later and Beneda, out of nowhere, has unreciprocated feelings for a character who only made a few brief appearances in the original tale. And we also find out that Ryouga is suddenly happy with Akari (a character who hasn't even been introduced yet!). Your writing seems to be falling apart, and that nice narrative and direction your story had before has seemingly vanished. I really hope the next few chapters come easier to you. I hope that you regain your old storytelling abilities, and I hope that the characters once again read in a believable way. I loved the first part of this tale, you had an iron grip on dialogue and action scenes, as well as an intriguing plot that continued to surprise.

Wow, this is looking to be an intense junction here, and can't wait to see what else will happen as wel get ready for what might be considered round two with the Senshi and the dark forces.
