| Marie Kenobi chapter 14 . 1/29
I'm really glad you're still continuing to write this story. This part of the series was certainly one of my favorites (I remember the animation getting better, amongst other things), and it makes me want to pop in my DVDs and watch it for the umpteenth time. I'm looking forward to the next chapter, as it sounds like there may be a reunion on the horizon!

I absolutely LOVE your version of the second half of this anime. Showing what they go through after that battle with Arago and all that. The dialog is great too! Awesome job! I look forward to seeing what you do next.

Well well well, what a treat! Maybe I should have just waited another day before posting a review, but I felt as though you needed a little reminder that people are still reading your story.
Thank you; it was an awesome chapter, as always. :)

My dear, I must be honest. Your story is by far the most interesting and well written piece of fiction within this fandom today. It saddens me that this hasn't been updated since November. I hope the holidays didn't kill you; this story has me enthralled.
I've checked back for this story on a regular basis, and while I'm not sure if if logs guest readers, I've reread the entire story every time you've updated, and even a few more when you haven't.
Please consider this as an avid reader and concerned fan who hopes that everything is alright in your life and looks forward to reading more of your amazing and engaging story.
Now, if you will excuse me, I must read through this again. :)

Another great chapter! I particularly liked the camaraderie and banter between Touma and Ryo. I hope we get to see more of it in the next chapter; this part of the series always had a lot of potential for side stories, in my opinion. I was also intrigued by the idea that if the boys failed, Arago wouldn't kill them, but rather use them as his servants to wreak destruction upon the Earth. That in itself has the potential for a nice, angsty one-shot. Out of curiosity, was there any particular reason you know of why they showed Ronin Warriors at AnimeUSA this year? Did they say if we have any new announcements to look forward to concerning the franchise?

I've been a bad girl. I disapeared for a few months, not that I had a lot of say in it. I'm so thrilled to see you've updated! I've got some chapters to catch up on. I'll do that this week, promise. Can't wait to read what new inspiration you have set before me! I'm so in love with this story!

Keep going! :) I am digging your take on the show. it's fun! lol :)
I don't really know what sort of critique you'd want but I'll say this. Take your time with the moments and build them up. Don't be afraid to. If worse comes to worse hit up a beta writer and ask them to take a look if you're unsure. Also, don't be afraid to play with your sentences structure. Like short sentences, or sentences that really nail the point. You're doing a fine job so far, just play with it and keep going :)
Also, update like soon! lol ;) Jk but definitely don't abandon the fic :)

Again, I am too lazy to sign into my account -_-
But hey keep it up! I am digging the story! :) I can't wait to see what happens in the next chapter. Which means you got to update soon! :D
And i'd still read the second version, depends though...would you be changing just the names or the content as well?
| Teahleaf chapter 7 . 6/24/2013
Way too lazy to sign into my account.
I've been following your story since you posted it. It's really awesome, I like the energy you're putting into it! I am not sure if you want crits or not. But honestly, just keep it coming. I am enjoying the liberties you've taken with this! :)
Keep it up! and post chapter 8 soon! :D

(I am also too lazy to log in) Thank you so much for continuing to write this story. It's so well done that it reminded me how much I love (and miss!) the series and the characters. You're personifications of them, diction, and understanding of their developing relationships during this time in the series is inspiring. I hope you continue to update it!

Glad to see an update! I still love how you've modernized the boys; I think it adds to the storyline rather than detracts from it. I also like how you've looked into the lesser-probed topics such as what will happen when school starts back and the reasons why they can't go to a hospital. These are things that seem so commonplace, most writers (the series included) didn't bother with them, but they really do add a deeper sense of urgency to what is taking place.

This is wonderful! Please continue. I love me some ryo angst and trooper bonding!

It's nearly impossible to find good, well-written YST fanfiction anymore. This is a part of the series that I've always thought had a lot of potential, especially for exploring Ryo's character (who, even after 15 years, still remains my #1 fictional crush). I really hope you continue with it, and I like the thought of putting the boys in our more modern world. I'm looking forward to reading more. :-)

At the risk of being a hypocrite: Where’s the next update? LOL Loving this story as always. I went back and read it all together, your first chapter still blows me away, but now for different reasons. I paid less attention to the squealing fangirl inside me and more to the sensible part that enjoys a good story. The characterization and conversations you wrote were fantastic and just fell together so perfectly. And your changing from one scene to the next…from Ryo’s inter turmoil to the concerns of the others, very smooth.
In the second chapter the fangirl part of me was a little disappointed not to see more of Ryo’s monster thoughts as the focus. Also, I think I may have accused you of ‘glossing over’ some of the Sarenbo battle by not seizing the opportunity to really dig into the minds of the Warriors…oh admit it…for not transforming the drama into a massive surge of angsty goodness. But I realized that if you had done either of these, the integrity of the story would have been compromised and it just wouldn’t be the same story.
I’m super juiced that there’s going to be another chapter! I personally hope that the second chapter will provide more interest then the second episode did in the series. They had something going and just sort of ran out of time to draw it out…so many questions could have been answered if they’d just written a third part to that set. The more I read the more I want to get inside all their heads. Ryo came to them…Sarenbo didn’t have to search him out….Ryo thinks he’s looking for a fight. What sort of trouble will such thoughts get him into? He’s already as reckless as Shu…but to become more so? You’ve left a lot of openings for other stories to spring from. I love that sort of inspiration!
Moving them up into the 2012 world of technology isn’t a big deal here. It’s passive to the story and so fits in well. You get the desired effects of communication and discovery, and the story still holds true to many things. Plus it gets Mia out of the way, now that Touma can do it all himself. Go Touma! Hope you update very very soon! The plot bunnies are restless!
