Hmm?! Savior? Hope the new live action movie inspires you to write more. I just read they're breaking the Kyoto arc into two movies, w the first release in summer 2014. Can't wait!

Oh. My. God. WHY DO YOU HATE ME?! Did I do something to you that I have no memory of? If so, I am very, very, very, very, very sorry! I will sell my soul in penance. But I beg of you... PLEASE DON'T TAKE SO LONG NEXT TIME! That wait was pure torture! I practically died! My heart probably stopped beating sometime over the last few weeks!
I don't think I can withstand it again...
BTW, loved it! :)

Can't wait to read more. You've got to complete this story! Very gratifying to have an appearance from the Tenken! Love the flashbacks; the proposal seemed right on. Can't wait to hear the flashback of Kenji's birth. Don't forget to take us back to Sano and Aoshi. I know you've got something great planned for them, too.
Beautiful imagery. Well done with characterization for Kenshin and Kaoru who are no longer actively performing the same roles they donned six years ago. Age is a reality that Kenshin would have to face. Thanks for showing it. I'd like to see Kaoru as a mother more. I really liked how Kenshin told her that a father is not a replacement for a mother. Love the fact that Kenji is around and that this story is about family. That scene between father and son was so precious. There is life after marriage! One criticism, though: Kenshin needs to man up and provide for his family financially- without having to be asked.
Overall, I applaud your effort to create a sensible, character driven fic. It's been fun to sink into this story and explore these characters in another season of their lives. Fantastic work! Hope to read more in the near future.

I like the concept that the reason why Kenshin lost ability to Hiten Mitsurugi was because he has been lazy in physical training. It kind of fits canon, as during the wandering years and at the dojo in Tokyo, he mainly trained with his Ki, did kata rarely and all around slacked off with consistent training. And considering how buff Hiko is still at even greater age, he should be able to help Kenshin get in shape even though Kenshin has alot more old injuries. After all, at the age of nearing forty Kenshin is not total invalid and thus incapable of getting better... after all we have seen men in their sixties doing body building succesfully. It IS slower going and harder, and has to be done carefully as muscles and joints are frailer... but it can be done.

I guessed right for the mystery fighter. I hope Kaoru can be saved. Thanks for the update!

Really good! Please keep up the good work! You are an excellent writer. I can see you have real potential. Are you by chance a professional?

I like how Kenshin's emotions ran the gamut as he chastised her for her recklessness.

NANI! WHOA! SOUJIRO! You caught me off guard. Wow...NOW I WANT THE NEXT CHAPTER! Darn.

Sanosuke's last name is spelled Sagara with an A between the G and R.
Aw, poor Kenshin! :-(
| Scarred Sword Heart chapter 3 . 1/3/2013
I like how Kenshin showed a little firmness in this chapter. A fun departure from his usual portrayal as a doormat.
