Reviews for Last Chance at Glory
SunBinamra chapter 5 . 7/16
I love how you portray Kaoru's strength not just in her ability to fight but also in her determination to follow her path despite being a woman and her courage. I think that when it comes to the manga/anime, a lot of people think she's weak because Kenshin or someone else is always doing the fighting - but it's easy to forget that those opponents are Kenshin-level, strong beyond belief warriors. In any other scenario Kaoru would kick ass.

On another note, I like the connections between the present and Kaoru's past. It's a seamless way of showing character development. Well done!

Thank you for the wonderful story. It was a genius idea for Kaoru too win the tournament in order to restore her school's honor. It is the only way Kaoru can find true happiness and wash away her fears and self-doubts (of being left behind, being weak, being unladylike, being an unworthy partner of Kenshin). Given the manga series is all about swordmanship and character development, it is very good, smart and appropriate approach you made here. It's great! 3

I'm so sorry for reviewing backwards but this chapter was great. The way you shifted POVs and the past and present, it's thoroughly effective and hauntingly beautiful. )
morning rush chapter 5 . 5/26/2009
This was incredibly written, and the characterisations were fantastic. I am in awe of your fic, it flows beautifully with the canon and your characters are completely IC. This fic brings so much more than your usual romance stuff, it's all about life. The epiphany of Kaoru during the match was well-written and gave that sense of satisfaction to the reader during the ending. And though there is lack of fluff, there is still that warm feelings you have instilled in the reader the way you have presented the deep relationship and understanding between Kaoru and Kenshin.

I really wish I could give a more detailed review, but perhaps being in awe just robs me of that. I think the most important thing you have presented here is the self-empowerment, showing us that you could only find this strength within yourself with a little help from your friends. Great job!
Brukaoru chapter 5 . 4/15/2009
Excellent work. It's really neat to see a different portrayal of Kaoru's father from other fanfics. The balance of flashbacks to the present was also really great. Very nice!

Wow...I mean,'s an awesome story you wrote! You just portrayed all of the characters so perfectly! Last chapter as well as the one in which Kenshin cuts his hair were just SO breathtaking! I could on and tell you how muck I enjoyed your story, but everything has already been said in the other reviews haha.
