So now they are going to get conflicting stories from the inner's and Saturn's fights.
Also are the cats still stuck in the box?
| Anonymous Void chapter 6 . 7/20/2013
Where to begin? Even the best laid plans fall apart when confronting the enemy. I was a bit surprised that Ranma's team wasn't doing better in the beginning. But now that I think about it, having that seventh Senshi there may had tipped things out of their favor if just a little. And let's not forget about Pluto. Apparently none of the Senshi have considered that the Dark Lords could accuse them of not keeping their word.
Then there was Ryouga vs Saturn. Not a bad fight. It makes sense Saturn can do that kind of damage to Ryouga since she has power over death. At least, that's my interpretation. Either that or each attack she has is naturally overcharged that it can get through Ryoug'a hide. The little scene with the family getting mixed up and the little girl coming to Saturn's "rescue" was a nice touch, gave the battle more character.
Last but not least, our antagonists have entered the fray, setting up Ranma and crew but now offering them a "way out." There's going to be a multitude of double crosses, I can feel it. But what's their overall plan and how does Kazuo plan to use Ranma and co.?
One last thing, hopefully the Senshi don't forget about Luna and Artemis. It's going to be a pain for them to get out of that crate by themselves.

My only real lament with the chapter is Saturn's inexplicable jump in both skill (the the point of busting out new attacks on the spot) and control over her power. The whole reason she was so feared as a last resort was precisely because she had no hope of controlling her power to the extent that she could be safely used around allies, let alone in areas crowded by civilians.
Now she debuts nearly half a dozen new attacks, fights almost like a lower-tier Ranma character (as opposed to the other Senshi who merely rely on being stronger, tougher, and faster to make up for the difference in skill), and somehow focuses her power to just her fingertips on the spot to defeat the bizarrely distracted Ryouga (nevermind that he could literally just ignore the kid who was pounding on him; what exactly were her parents doing while she was risking her life like that anyway). It would have made more sense if she had just blasted him with an indiscriminate burst of energy like she was capable of even in her non-senshi form and as an infant.
If all of the Senshi were this innovative and skilled (particularly the ones with actual martial arts training and far more experience than Hotaru) they'd have demolished the Nerima Crew by now. It just feels like she was granted a patently silly power-up for the sole sake of allowing her to win the fight when, given the location of their battle and her usual need to hold back, Ryouga should have face-rolled her.

You know, even though it would make for a shorter story, I really, REALLY wanted to throttle those guys for pulling that trick. Of course I also wanted to throttle Pluto for attacking Akane. Guess I wasn't alone in that. Anyway, another good chapter, with the plot, or should I say plotting, thickening. Look forward to you next one.

I'm starting to hate your villains... But I'm glad that Sailor Saturn at least knows that Ryoga doesn't act like the other villains

| Grizzmon chapter 6 . 7/20/2013
OF course, everything went to hell, and I bet Ranma will be brainwashed or something...
| So you want to be an Author chapter 6 . 7/20/2013
Awww come on! I feel like watching "Lois and Clark" all over again...
Still, geat chapter!
| Guest chapter 6 . 7/20/2013
Hmm Interesting and enjoyable chapter.
Only thing that bugs me is the reviews saying crystal tokyo is built on th eblood of millions... Stupid Fanon. Your author notes earlier even clear that up.
But this was Awesome I really am curious who ryouga will end up with. I really want him to find someone (Saturn maybe? Pluto or other?) Ehh can't wait till the next time.
Also Traps are fun. Ranma is an expert at them (being caught in them makes one an expert right?).

GREAT CHAPTER! (*x4) and the third party win this battle.
| J. Palmgren chapter 6 . 7/20/2013
Lack of communication getting a bit old here... Combine with stupid-senshi(tm) and it will soon break the story.
| TheOneButcher chapter 6 . 7/20/2013
You know, I just realized something. Not only did Sailor Moon mind rape the whole world, she also killed 84 million Babies.

Absolutely fantastic, I just love how misunderstanding piles on top of misunderstanding!
And the fights man! I just love the way you write fights. Even Ukyo looked badass, incorporating some of hidden weapons technique and blending it with her school of okonomaiyaki fighting.
Still, it's really unwise of Ranma to go off along. I'm surprised that Konatsu let him. He has to know Ukyo would be against it.
| ApocryphaFreeze chapter 6 . 7/20/2013
Lies about how many they're taking to the duel, and when they're called out on it, they respond with "It's justified to lie to your enemy."
Enemy fake surrenders, as far as they can tell. That's apparently "GOING TOO FAR! RAAAAAAGE!"
Are the Senshi just...complete idiots along with being hypocritical? Because I'm kind of hoping they lose in this story. Lose completely. They just kind of...rush along and don't ask questions.
| Pusakuronu chapter 6 . 7/20/2013
Whoa, I seem to have missed quite a few updates of this story. The misunderstandings are still going strong, I see. With the latest twist, things are probably going to get (more) bloody before they get better.
Speculation: the bad guys used some form of pure-heart snatching technology against Usagi. Which means, hmm, Mamoru would have to do the same thing he did to keep Chibi-Usa alive, and the other senshi would chase the "dark lords" relentlessly to get the heart crystal back. Yeah, with the way things have been going, that sounds about right.
Also wondering if Luna and Artemis will be able to turn a battle around with cat-to-the-face attack. I'm looking forward to more.
