This was a wonderful story that brought a new meaning to mass crossover for me. The way you worked in different Manga's/Anime's so that they all could fit in one story I loved every moment of reading this masterpiece. You my friend have a real talent for writing if you could put all of these stories together and I hope you one day do make a real story cause I would buy a copy.

Thanks for writing this story, over all I really enjoyed it.

I particularly thought the Yamato/Motoko interactions were the best part of this piece, with Motoko overall being the most developed character. That being said, your Yamato character is the one who actually had the best "voice" if you will, so together they were fun to read.

Following on from that I'd say that Keitaro and Kitsune had pretty good development as well, but the rest of the cast not so much. In particular I did feel like the cast of Suzuka were largely wasted (and not surprisingly, since outside of a few of them they're mostly boring in the manga/anime as well). I didn't particularly care for Yuuka too much - nothing negative here, but I just didn't feel anything for her. It was weird, but I was actually hoping that the "hotel incident" was going to be the end of that arc (and a fine dramatic crescendo it was), so it was disappointing to see her come back in the end (regardless of fan polls and the such, I didn't think their story had legs).

One particularly noteworthy thing that stood out to me was the pseudo-villain/heel turn by Mutsumi. I thought this was a great idea and I really enjoyed it. Personally I think it would have been a more fulfilling dramatic story to kill off the Yuuka/Keitaro relationship at the hotel scene, then build up a Mutsumi/Keitaro relationship with a "new" Mutsumi who was a bit more... jaded and emotionally cynical (basically less perfect, which was always her flaw as a character and potential love interest). However, I recognize that doing this would have facilitated a THIRD dramatic arc in this story, which is probably pushing it a tad bit far. More or less I am acknowledging that you had to be commited to Yuuka (rationally I accept this) but I can't help but not feel it.

On the all, this was a pretty good yarn. I liked how you managed to keep all the subplots going. I enjoyed several of the characters you wrote and despite the size of this fiction I didn't get bored with it. Overall, very well done and once again thanks for writing it.

I really get the feeling that you're trying to set Motoko and Yamato up, but man if I don't really just like Honoka from the manga/anime so much more. Don't get me wrong, Motoko will always be my favorite Love Hina girl, but Honoka is totally adorable in her Dojikko (clumsy cute girl) way.

I'm still reading, it's still pretty good. I do think that there are too many characters in this story that get too much screen time. If you're going to do this again in the future my advice would be to break them up into smaller groups of associated characters and then alternate them in chapters. It's a lot easier for people to follow the story that way.

Also, Shinobu's characterization seems all over the map right now, Naru is kind of getting lost in the mix,it's like she's on a loop set on repeat of doing the same stuff and I have no idea what's going on with Keitaro because the story seems to be trying to aim for some sort of love conclusion/fight/drama around him but it's not materializing or moving forward. This is probably due to the huge cast - not everyone is getting proper development in equal paces (Motoko, oddly enough, is the most developed character in this story so far - almost every scene she is in leads her to some sort of personal development)

Hmm, cool - I just realized that this is a Suzuka crossover. I'll have to investigate this further...

An amazing conclusion to an amazing tale. I have noticed that in this fandom there are many of this kind of stories, actually there is many of this kind og stories in many franchises but in those stories i always felt that everything was rushed but you did this perfectly, i never felt it was rushed. Overall my friend you have made a piece of art that you should be proud of.
Bismarck Alexander chapter 40 . 7/21/2014
Yes! Keitaro scored with the blonde
And looks like everything turned out alright in the end
Kitsune is a good a mother
Too bad Su wasnt there
But Motoko and Yamato are a cute couple

I enjoyed your story
I hope theres a sequel

A satisfying end to a wonderful fanfic! Loved the Yuka end :D.

All the characters had nice resolutions in the epilogue as well. It's good to see Tora getting punished for the scumbag that he is XD. Hina's as stubborn as ever lol. Naru and Kitsune tandem along with the bundle of joy that is Takayuki made me smile. Yamato x Motoko is a really fun pair to read. Shinobu, Sarah and Kanako's fates were well written as well. Kaollu Su though...

Will continue to read your work in the future :)

Sweet! I was worried the votes would be in favor of Mizuho, so I voted Mutsumi in hopes of getting an alternative. That said, I adore the way you write, so I knew the ending would be likable regardless.

I did like the Yuka ending and that the two of them sorted things out. The endings for all of the other characters were enjoyable as well, including Kanako's bit with voice acting. Actually Kanako being a voice actor amused me greatly. Takayuki's nickname for her was adorable!

Naru and Kistune remaining friends, and in touch with, Keitaro is also a novel part of this fanfic. More often than not in fanfics where he doesn't wind up with Naru, she winds up getting a negative ending rather than realizing her own faults/moving on in life and staying friendly. I believe that an event like Kitsune getting pregnant would actually spur her into a new role and cause her to change her own perspective on those around her. Making up with her family being one of the most important things for her to have done. Including Mei, whom I also like ;)

I will admit that ever since I saw Tora in an anime clip for Maid-sama last year, I've hated his guts. I mean he IS a pretty stereotypical villain that gets his at the end anyway, but I enjoyed seeing his treatment of Kitsune end with his getting a state mandated punishment for it. Well Kitsune and every other women he's come across.

You did explain the reasoning behind the endings quite well, and even Suzuka's revelation in the last chapter and subsequent change of character up til now was very well done. It isn't often that Suzuka changes as well and stays friend with Yamato when they DON'T end up together. Mind you, this was something that annoyed me about Suzuka cannon, I don't feel that her and Yamato should have wound up together.

He and Motoko, a character from another anime/manga mind you, had way more chemistry than Yamato and Suzuka did. Although the idea of Motoko having intimate relations with someone and being able to mention it at all sort of wowed me. I mean, I knew she'd get to that point someday, where she felt comfortable doing certain things within a stable relationship, but it's nice to see such a thing pan out. Yamato and Motoko both had "interesting" experiences with those of the opposite gender and always seemed to be able to understand one another, however grudgingly, so it worked out much better than what any cannon storyline could have given them.

Thank you very much for writing this fic, it was a pleasant read during a rather stressful few months/year. I'm sorry I didn't review more, but will try to backpedal and review the other chapters I've read at some point. My mind's been more tired and lacking in inspiration to write a legible review than it normally is. Though, I felt the need to write this one, despite everything, because of how happy reading this story made me. You gave it a happy ending, and gave all the characters a purpose and showed them achieving, or on the cusp of achieving, their goals. So that was some great writing, it's nice to have a happy ending for everyone once in a while, excepting Hina, but I won't hold my breath for that one. She's rarely seen as anything but manipulative mastermind, though she is occasionally redeemed. Anyway, kudos to you and have an awesome, what's left of, the weekend. ;)

It's good that Kitsune for not accepting the money from Tora, who know what will happen!
But what about Hina?
Heliosion chapter 40 . 7/20/2014
A brilliant well rounded conclusion to what was a immensely enjoyable read. I read this from the very start and I'm sad but at the same time happy to see it come to its natural conclusion. I say this each and every time but it would feel wrong not to but once again you show your the master of the five minute read! I'm highly anticipating your next project!
Ginkyofu13 chapter 40 . 7/20/2014
That turned out to be the best fanfiction ending ever! I think I actually find Yuka and Keitaro a good couple, but I am very graceful that everyone changed for the better. That's a good thing! I seemed to enjoy it a lot and I will continue to follow the work in the future because you deserve a Metal!
Kamen Rider Onyx chapter 39 . 7/16/2014
Welp Suzuka's a coward*TBF though Yamoto kinda is too*

and I vote Yuka.
RacerShadow chapter 39 . 7/14/2014
Oh btw Id rather see Mizuho and Keitaro 2gether because I havent seen any Love Hina Fanfics with Mizuho being the girl Keitaro ended up with and personally i hate Yuka.
DaMastah101 chapter 39 . 7/14/2014
'Twas a swell chapter :D I like that most of the hanging subplots are resolved. I vote Yuka BTW :)
