Well, this looks like quite the mess they've landed in. I guess even whatever brainwashing they put on Warren couldn't make him stop loving Kurumu, but hopefully it'll be enough to make him break through and help her get free, even if just for a little while. Gyokuro is an evil, evil, EVIL woman, torturing her own daughter like that, and Weapon X being traced back to HYDRA and the Red Skull actually makes a certain level of sense. Just wondering what the next volume will contain and how everything'll turn out.

Well, this is a twist. So X-23 isn't Wolverine's clone, but his daughter in this story. Well, it kinda worked out that way in the original comics, anyway, since her DNA was stabilized using Sarah Kinney's genes and Sarah gave birth to her. All the same, I'm glad she's with the X-Men now, and what's going to happen to Archangel? Will he be brought back to himself, the X-Men, and Kurumu? And when did Sinister and Gyokuro hook up, and what's their endgame?

Deadpool's insanity is as welcome as always, particularly since it's such an insane story you're adapting to begin with. Not much more to say than that, although seeing X-23 act like a lovesick fangirl is quite amusing, too. All in all, I'm looking forward to what more you've got in store with this story.

It's funny how Alex was so quick to jump down Gambit's throat for suggesting that they get a fill-in for Angel, but when he runs into Sunfire, he's perfectly all right with him joining the team for a while. By the way, as long as you're introducing Japanese mutants native to the X-Men universe, how do you feel about bringing in Silver Samurai, Armor, and Surge? Surge is from the New X-Men, and Armor was from Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men, and Silver Samurai is a longtime enemy of Wolverine whose mutant power enables him to coat his sword in faster-than-light particles that presumably make his sword's molecules move at similar speeds and thus cut through anything. He'd be an interesting character to pit against the Yokai Academy group, perhaps as an assassin working for Gyokuro and the Chimera Group, which would also bring him into conflict with Wolverine.
Surge would be interesting in that her mutant power is electrical absorption that she has so far been only able to regulate with help from special gauntlets and she can channel the electricity into either bolts or bursts of super-speed, which could put her on par with Gin in terms of sheer speed. Armor's power is that she can generate a powerful psychic aura that forms armor around her body and can grow significantly larger than a normal human body (not giant robot large, but still large) while her normal-sized body remains in its center to direct its movements. She's a primary character in the X-Men anime, so you can see that if you want to learn more about her. In terms of their personalities, Surge is rebellious and outspoken, while Armor tends to be more shy about expressing herself unless she's extremely angered and somewhat doubtful of her abilities at first for fear of hurting others because of them.
Just some small thoughts for the future; you don't have to take them if you don't want to. I just thought those three characters would interact particularly well with the RosarioVampire cast in this story.

And now all of Logan's memories are back, and Kokoa is officially part of the family of the combined Newspaper Club and X-Men. That's actually quite awesome, although now it seems things are going to get a lot more complicated (and painful) with Mister Sinister and Gyokuro Shuzen's Chimera plotting away, and what about X-23? If the previous canon's anything to go by, she probably envies that happy little family she's spying on even though she won't say it aloud or even admit it to herself. That might just be how Logan gets through to her, poor dear.

Well, damn, you weren't lying when you said there was gonna be a twist. Stryker, Gyokuro, and Sinister (or Dr. Essex, as he was known in those days) working together to experiment on young yokai and young mutants. Sickening, and I guess that's how Wolverine gets his adamantium skeleton in your story after all. About that girl who thinks she's a mermaid that Charles pointed out, would she be Tamao Ichinose's mother or something like that, or just some random mermaid? And why is Wade already talking like he can see past the fourth wall when he hasn't gotten his brain-breaking healing factor yet? Questions and seeming inconsistencies aside, I did enjoy this chapter a lot and I'm looking forward to the next one.
| Rider Paladin chapter 6 . 3/16/2012
Well, that's really quite a twist. Akasha Bloodriver being Logan's teacher in the ways of the samurai and martial arts and Gyokuro Shuzen being the leader of the Chimera are quite interesting plot points, namely in the sense of Wolverine having such intimate ties to Moka's family. Speaking of "intimate," would anything have happened between Logan and Akasha, just out of curiosity? And will Gyokuro Shuzen return to haunt Wolverine in the present day? Plus, what happens if Wolverine finds out about Akasha's final fate? And will Mister Sinister be double-crossed by Gyokuro if they team up, assuming they're not already teamed up? Anyway, if any of this doesn't make sense according to your own plans for the story, feel free to correct me.

So X-23 is working for Mister Sinister, assuming she wasn't adopted by Mister Sinister, which would explain her dramatically more sadistic personality. As for what's gonna happen to Angel, I'm guessing Sinister will "rebuild" him as the metal-winged Archangel, which is simultaneously awesome and dreadful since he'll be under Sinister's control and will be attacking his friends, Kurumu included. Speaking of, it's kind of funny that you're pairing them, since Kurumu has "devil wings" and Angel is so named for his "angel wings," but I guess that's the fun of it. In any case, what does Logan suddenly remember from his past and how will it impact the upcoming chapters? I cannot wait for the answer to that one!
| Rider Paladin chapter 4 . 3/11/2012
Well, that was a fun ride. It seems Wolverine's old pals from Team X are coming around to make his new life at Yokai Academy a mess, although things might be better now that Logan and Jean have a chance to be together now. And Deadpool is as much of a laugh riot as he's ever been, so thanks for that. I'm guessing the scruffy guy is Sabretooth, and that you're going for the Origins explanation of them being brothers. And seeing Logan be his fatherly self with Yukari is quite sweet and endearing, reminding us all that behind that gruff facade and occasional berserker rage is a surprisingly gentle and caring guy. Just don't tell him that. He'd hate to think we knew he was a big softie underneath it all. Heh. Looking forward to more of the story.

Ok..Intresting..Not good intresting but intresting enough to read.
| Tokyo Fox chapter 2 . 3/4/2012
not bad but when i frist started reading it i thought that Jubes who's now a vampire would be in it and yes i'm saying mainstream Jubilee is a vamp. You can find out about it easily enough to where i don't need to explain it here..Even if it is a bit confusing.
| Rider Paladin chapter 1 . 3/1/2012
Well, that was fun. Wolverine vs. Kokoa. A century-old soldier who has been around the world and seen and done all sorts of things, not all of them very pleasant in one corner, a pig-tailed teenage vampire with a sister complex and armed with a shape-shifting bat in the other corner. Fun for the whole family! Looking forward to the next chapter, but this is pretty good to start off on.
