Yes finally! someone who realizes that Pyrrha's death was not only forced and senseless, but the character just had too much to give to the story, just wanted to comment on that :D

Where is the update? its been over 4 months.

I only care because I enjoy your work. Thankyou.

nah, Wiess gets pretty busty in 6 and 7.

Racial profiling that's entirely correct? I mean, seriously, you even wrote extra background monologues FROM Blake, explaining how the fang only really attack shipments of weapons and dust. Not cash or goods.

Sun makes being a walking trope fun. Best possible match for Blake. Loyal, skilled, capable of pulling the stick out of her ass on repeated occasions.

Loony Toons are awesome.

Ah penny... if it weren't for Japan, I'd have trouble believing someone that painfully cute has a dudes soul.
Well, half a dudes soul.
He really should have started recruiting other old dying fogies and made more Penny's. Or other models, but same idea. Her waifu bot upgrade in season 7 is just perfect. Pity she totally gets set up AGAIN. But hey, it ends with her becoming Winter! So, winter maiden, with a dudes soul! It's an almost perfect fit for a Ranma story!
Speaking of which, I really don't get why the Maiden power have only ever gone to girls. The reason they pick new hosts in the first place is because they're shards of Ozpin, the same way Penny is a shard of Pietro Polendina.
Though, that in itself has interesting implications for dear ozzy...

Silly Penny needs to download more anthropology. Petite little girls are often contestants of eating contests. Often as not, they even WIN! It's hilarious to watch! They walk away looking pregnant...
heh, that line should be dated, given where her souls been and who her programmer is...

Perry is a dog. Such a pity. It would have been so much better if Perry were a platypus... ;p

When did cinder have time to put in the worm? Because in canon, they needed all of the teachers distracted with the dance for her to do that.

More to cover the brand on his left eye than to appear the monster, most likely.
Also, not particularly remarkable. The show is VERY into it's stereotypes for the faunus.

youch, you're going stereotyped Knights Templar on Ozzy? Poor guy.

Slow can be good... but it can also ruin everything. Love is friendship/loyalty that lasts after the 3 years of lust fades. The pursuit can extend that 3 years further, but that's typically more for the obsessive types. Regardless, married at 19-25 to a long term friend the girl looks up to with a kid or several in the first 3 years is statistically the least likely to divorce or result in marital abuse.
On the other extreme; waiting while she pursues her career and sleeps around is statistically the highest path for creating bitter, childless, man hating cat ladies.

Heh, yeah, gorgeous guy more or less sexually harasses a girl, she's flattered. Gross, or even merely normal guy does even half that, dat's rape!

It's kinda odd really, to think that canonically, dumpy blond malichite is the mother of the twins at juniors. Their dads jeans musta been hella dominant.

Also, what's the chance Ranma will take an interest in Hazel's trick of empowering himself directly with dust? Sure, Ranma doesn't really need it... but his canon persona is all about picking up new tricks.

I also wonder (again) if Ranma will end up with two shards of ozpin when he kills cinder, or if someone else will get it?

Would sea sickness even be a thing with a ship that large, outside of a storm? I've known people in the Navy who have troubles with sea sickness on destroyers and cruisers, but are completely fine on aircraft carriers and oil tankers. Outside of a storm.

Hah, Ranma doesn't know America very well. Though, alot of foreigners I met on deployment didn't either. It's rather amazing how many people seem to think America only has 5 states. Hawaii, Alaska, California, Texas and New York.
Regardless, getting a gun is a pain in the ass, and discouraged besides. The bigger your town/city, the harder they make it, even if you don't have anything resembling a criminal record or family.
Also? Racial tensions in high gun areas are always at an all time low. As they said in The Walking Dead; You speak politely to a man with a gun, it's just common sense.

Given the only fishy grim shown in the series are Yinglong and Leviathan, I dunno whether to agree with that assessment or call bull.
Well, them, and the gigantic fucking sky whale Salem rode in on in the finale of season 7.

Knowledge is only terrible if you're struggling with denial.

Why's wies being uptight about her rapier? I thought Ruby already tooled up everybodies weapons? During that punishment arc?

Hrmm...you do like your flanders, it seems. That's quite the departure from how Adam was described in the anime. Adam was the avatar of spite, yes, but he wasn't shown or stated to be a monster.

Ah, anti-racists, being just as violent as racists. More, really, given the situation. :eyeroll:
also, interesting way to deal with ranma's classes.

Y'know, I kinda wonder, will Amber wake up when Ranma kills cinder? Or will he get Falls stolen power?
Course, I'd be more interested in seeing Neo get it at this point. No offense to Pyrrha.

rofl! Neko-ken finally happened! Pity you didn't go through the whole explanation with them. Or have him go cat-mode in the middle of a grim horde, for him to utterly devastate, but this was fun regardless.

Well, given what happened in that scene, and the battle with the horseman, it's more likely Ren kept the pair going until Nora got tired of being scared and needing to be saved all the time, and got hammer-happy.

Well, yeah, if a girl can beat a boy, the only way she's ever going to be even slightly interested in him is if he's BOTH pretty and can make her laugh. And not mean laughs either. Juane being a pretty good example.
Even then, she's not going to respect him. Also as shown with Juane.

Heh... cinematic drama right in the middle of a kiss? Guess we know who the chosen one is now.

Hive queen progenitor, now, is she? Now that's QUITE the AU.

Trito-shark, huh?
Also, why isn't he using Mokotakabisha? Seriously, you made it critically effective and then never use it!?

Are Piranadon by any chance akin to the Deep One's fish people from Lovecraft?

TOARU NO RAILGUN, MISAKA CHAN! Er, Pyrrha, i mean. *cough*.

Nice kiss there at the end.
9/24/2020 c16 Byakugan789
hrmm... is the AU of Salem being a grim part of your "No magic" AU, or the part where I can't figure out where you are on watching the series?
Her Grimness is a technicality. She WAS human. Then she messed with the gods and got cursed with immortality. Season 6 I think. After they get the lantern from Raven in season 5, but before they get to Pyrrha's home. She found immortality more a curse than a gift, and tried to kill herself in the Grim generation pools, which killed everything else to ever touch them. But because she was immortal, the pool infected her of the course of a century.

Too sexy to pull it off, heh, she hasn't met coco I guess.

Despite the stereotype of girls doing the cooking, Men make up 95% of professional chefs, from short order diners to gourmet restaurants. The division of labor where women cook is generally hinged upon her being unable to do harder jobs and the family not having leisure money.
This is also largely true in the related cottage industries. Bakeries, deli's and the like. Though the ratio is somewhat more favorable to women, that's mostly because of savories such as cakes, pastries and such. its only in food service and stay at home mothers where you see the stereotype of women handling food return.

Hmm...I'd thought Ranma had been getting better over the course of the manga about cats. Given he deliberately used it several times and even in the intro had to be more or less swarmed to really freak out.
eh w/e, you took Yangs flirting and Ruby's weapon crafting to fetish levels too.

Train rider doesn't know that Yang is Raven Bronwynns daughter?

Ranma's USED to a lot of relationship drama and oddities. Not comfortable with, sure, but he is USED to it all.

Why humans in Renmant are better. They manage to build cities. On a hellworld. The faunas despite their "multiple natural advantages" have not. Simple as that. When Menagerie manages to build it's own city, hunter school, army and start trading it's natural resources, they will have proven themselves equal.
It's like making the argument Toad from the XMen is superior because magneto and charles named their race homo-superior.

Fox stereotyping, blake? tisk tisk.

Be funny if all of the cats on the ship end up sleeping on Ranma tonight.
9/22/2020 c15 Byakugan789
Nice defensive setup. I do wonder why it's not self sustaining any more though. Volcanic soil and the fact it's a port and thus has fishing, should be plenty. Unless it's that mentioned need for dust imports to run everything?

Heh, call them an infestation of Shutterbugs, it makes a better sounding analogy.

Hmm... I'd have thought the bullheads would use more gravity dust than fire. eh, w/e

I guess this wasn't revealed yet, as season 7 was in 2019, but Mercury doesn't have a semblance. His fathers semblance allowed him to steal Mercury's semblance. His steam attacks are due to his mechanical legs being loaded with a Steam type Dust and his combat prowess is because like Ranma his training was just that ridiculous.

I like the business code you set up for cinder.

trading out the mother daughter vibe for a lesbian one with cinder/emerald?

Ah, Ranma/pyrrha... there's a lot of books like that. The ones that sound nice and like you're taught at home tend to be idealized and only work for 5% of girls, while the ones that piss everybody off tend to have great results with most of them.
Bit of a short hand though;
only visuals will catch a guy, and only being some he can stand to be around, an actual friend, will keep him longer than the three year lust period. Guys are not afraid of commitment and kids, they're afraid of being legally liable to someone they can't stand out of the bedroom who will wield those kids as a weapon.
Girls will always go for the highest status guy within their reach. Figure out what they judge status by and only put up with 1 in 10 shit tests. Put up with too many of them, fall in status or suffer someone of higher status and lower standards to hang around; and she'll leave you.

Wonder when Blake's going to tell everyone about her romance with Adam. She was pretty cagey about it for something like 5 seasons.

Ah, Adam, you racist, automatically assuming your people built the bridge. :P
They was kangz.

Ranma didn't permanently lose that shield did he?

The answer to that, blake, is spite and resentment. Rather than making something of themselves or starting a Faunas city, they stewed in their ghetto and blamed humans for everything.

Heh, Blake BARELY beat Adam when teamed with a much more combat ready Yang, in season 6.
Though, honestly, it'd be hilarious to see blake make Ranma go cat'fist here. Would your reality'rules that made beni go so far as turning Ranma into a faunas? Or would he just act like her dad does in combat?

I think you're underestimating SClass Grim, if you think Adam is more dangerous.

good going on the capture. I would have gone for beheading though. The villains in Remnant seem to possess an almost saturday morning cartoon level of escapist luck/ability.
Heh, Ranma willingly swimming. What a change a curse makes.

Eh, most of the danger in the series comes from the human enemies, so that's quite the switch.
9/20/2020 c13 Byakugan789
faaaaaaaq... using a different keyboard and accidentally posted ch12's review halfway through the chapter!
Eh, will post here instead, note when ch13 starts.

Ch12 cont...

Phyra, Nora, Yang, ah tomboys. Though, more on the boy part than usual... Helps that they're so hot/cute.

I wonder, actually, what heat would do to Adams sword. He's like Yang, in that he turns your attacks into aura, but he collects and stores it in his equipped weapon rather than his body.

Unconscious being a gentleman to Cinder? Do I smell hate-sex in their future? You ARE fond of lemons.

Looking forward to when Yang and Ranma start exchanging family stories.

Semblances aren't usually heritable. That's noted as something makes Wiess' glyphs and Ruby's silver eyes so rare and special.

Given later reveals for Ozpin's character, Glynda's likely only in charge in terms of running the daily paperwork to keep all the gears spinning, while Oz handles all of the other administrative, political and social functions of keeping the school going. In addition to his plots and intrigue.

A steam powered train assumes easy access to significant amounts of coal, or chemically treated wood. They're also horribly inefficient, as trains go.

Ch 13 RE:

Ranma's had several kisses with Shampoo over the course of the series. And a kiss with his mirror clone. Granted, they were never reciprocal, but Ranma's kissed girls before.

Racism isn't often about oppression. The oppressed are often as or more racist than the oppressor. Never mind racism between equals. For instance, French vs English. LONG standing HARSH racial tension between the two, France owned and oppressed England for centuries and are still a major part of the English nobility. Look up the Norman conquest. And yet, England threw them off, came to rule half of the world through trade rather than force of arms and led a world war against hundreds of other nations supposedly their superior in order to end slavery. Of which they were successful. But blacks in Africa and the America's despite having a similar story, only lag forever behind.
If Faunus were so superior to humanity...why in the thousands of years of Remnants new history have their never had a nation of their own? Why is Menagerie something they were given, rather than something they built? Why do so many faunas fight to stay where they are discriminated rather than taking the free trip to Menagerie? The place is Bahama Beautiful and has several dust mines. If the Faunas are better,.. why. Why isn't it developed. Why isn't it an equal to the four city states? Why don't Faunas flock there? Why. did. it. have. to. be. Given To Them?

Specific individual faunas, such as those rare few capable of getting into a preppy school like beacon are rarely relevant for more than anecdotal evidence, and can always be easily countered by the anecdotes of the worst of their group. What matters when speaking about race and ethnicity is group traits and capabilities.
According to their background, The Faunas have been around as long as humanity has anything built or recorded, having been created in the same post apocalypse as magic-less humanity. So the fact that there are no great faunas nations in Remants history is important and damning. Africans and indigenous at least had that distinction to set them above the Faunas.

Equality is not something you can be given. It is something you DO. To be treated as equal, you must first BE equal. No equal partner would ever allow themselves to be treated as inferior. And no superior could ever be subdued by an inferior except by their own consent.

A couple of years ago, I couldn't have cared less, but this constant "you're white so you're racist. You're male so you're a double racist oppressor" just makes me bristle and want to hoist the Jolly Rodger.

Great fight scene.
Though an evolved S nevermore being nothing more than a scouting mission seems wrong somehow.

I really dislike the choice of a lance. Lances were specifically designed for mounted combat, specifically for mounted charges. Most often lances either broke after the charge or were discarded. You could have gone with a halberd, spear or guandao type weapon especially as that would allow Ranma to actually wield it using spear techniques.

"if he couldn't handle you being stronger than him, he wasn't worth your time"
Yes and no... We've been getting MOUNTAINS of data on this over the last 60 years of feminism. Women are NOT happy with weaker husbands who make less money than them and give in to their whims. By MASSIVE Self Report, any of these things make them UnHappy, and in combination it makes them Miserable. And when she is miserable, SHE WILL make HIM miserable. So, him knowing when to duck out is just as likely to be a sign of high character as a lack of it.

Ranma has a bunkbed for the twins to take over? A chapter or two ago, before the battle, you said he had a hammock.

Marrying a friend is the best kind of marraige. Because after the romance ends, your hormones settle and the illusion is ripped away, you're still left with someone you know and like who knows and likes you. You're still connected by that friendship, rather than being bound by duty and the threat of divorcerape.
I guess there's a vote for #UkyoBestGirl. Personally, I'd go Ranma marries Nabiki and "Ranko" marries "mr Ukyo".

People break up mostly as a result of womens lib. They like monkey branching off to a "better man" and disillusioned men enjoy having free access to all the poon-tang they can talk up in a bar. If she doesn't think she can do better, the relationship lasts, rock steady.

Dumbledore? Ranma's timeline is 1984-6 and he's not a particularly big reader. How would he even know about the Harry Potter series?
It IS a school for warriors though.

and so the cats out of the bag... surprised there was no scene with Yang questioning Ranma about it...

Not like Nora or something? She was pretty reasonable outside of battle in the anime.
Ah, I see, just trying to flesh her out as a person with problems.
