Finally got caught up on this story. I remember reading the first chapter many years ago and thinking it had the potential to be one of the greatest stories I ever read. Sadly it dropped in quality after that. It is still good writing, but maybe there's a bit too much focus on dresses and shopping.
By far my favourite part of the story is when Ranma changes back into the male body, only to realize that her gender is a girl. Very powerful scene. But we don't get really get that many more of these introspective scenes in which Ranma considers what it means and how she finds herself changing. Or we have a single scene in which Ranma kinda mentions she's starting to consider herself a girl, but after that we don't really have any meaningful talks about Ranma's gender identity again.

The whole Ranma becoming a Sailor Scout idea is great, I love Sailor Ranma stories. But we only see her participate in a single fight, then some examinations and after that it just kinda seems to drop away. For the last few chapters Ranma being Hestia is mostly just a matter of just being a title so she can interact with the other Senshi.

Also what exactly happened with the curse interacting with the Senshi transformation? Ami scanned Ranma and said she was a normal girl. Would have been nice with this scene where Ranma checks if she still has the curse or not (which could also lead to an amazing scene in which Ranma goes completely dysphoric if she still has the curse because she's gone 100% girl or if it is locked, go through a small crisis because she realize that she should feel bad losing the male side, yet finds herself being happy that she no longer needs to concern herself with waterproof soap.

Ranma and Nodoka are also two characers that have a lot of potential. And while they do have talks, Ranma has at that point realized who she is, that she's a girl and that she does not need her mothers approval to survive. But if she tells about Mr. Panda (just drop some tea on him) and then asks Nodoka to return, there could be this powerful scene in which Ranma reveals that she was Nodoka's son, but is now her daughter. With Setsuna supporting Ranma and is prepared to step in to defend her.

Anyway, I think I have said enough for now. Hope there'll one day be more chapters.

Dragon Man 180: That crack(?) about the bunny suit makes me think; if Jeannie (I Dream of Jeannie) got a gig as a "chick" pokemon instead of Sailor Moon, she could use her magic to girl up her harem outfit into a bishoujo sailor senshi outfit.

I have to say this has been a good fic...

I wished you would have continued the new invader part of the story, but it looks to have been dropped out to show Ranma & Setsuna's growing relationship... And don't get me wrong I love the Ranma & Pluto pairing... But I mean according to your own telling of time, its been 2 almost 3 years since Ranma has changed into Sailor Hestia and we haven't seen any more then just that one encounter.

I personally am not a big fan of Fem-Ranma stories, and yet this it another is a story that I have enjoyed as much as "Thy Outward Part" I would love to see more of this.

Ranma as a female plump bunny had me rolling on the floor, I loved it... and to all the haters... most of her plumping can be blamed on her spoiling Hotaru... He was happy that it fooled Nabiki & the people from Hong Kong... However, its Hotaru treating Ranma like a pet to feed little tidbits to all the time she can and then getting spoiled by Setsuna don't help... Plus Ranma knows that Setsuna knows all his secrets, even the curse... So by my math he should be out or almost out of Water-proof Soap... So hot water strike would now send Ranma into a panic...

But all in all Great Story and keep writing...

To defend the author, there is a reason Ranma is so out of character in this fic. S/He is not an original Senshi, or reborn princess. The power which operates "Sailor Hesta" needs to compensate for the Jusinkyo curse.

And Countess Nemesis is also behind Ranma's femizating personally for her own reasons.

I was told by the author that in the end, it will all make sense. And Ranma will have to make a choice.

The Ranma in this story is SO OOC.
Canon Ranma HATED being transformed into a girl, and his primary motivation was being the World's Best Martial Artist.

Hiding out as a nanny is pretty reasonable. Even getting into a "lesbian" relationship. But going PLUMP?! That would absolutely KILL the Martial Arts. (Especially going as plump as some of the DeviantArt pics go)

I am so infinitly frustrated with this fic. on one had the writing is fantastic, and part of the story is a great premise, i love the 'transformation turbulence' but... Ranma's been turned into a wilting flower/trophy wife and it disgusts me on a deep level. the pretentious showing off to her friends about how rich she lives now just adds to that frustraition.

I want tocontinue but the complete decay of a strong (and misguided) confident character into this.. wreck, is too much for me.
To be a dick though, why must you use blush so much? is she so full of shame now that just greeting her is enough to make her well up with embaressment? Argh!

Thank you for writing this fic.

What I like:
Ranma getting away from Nerima and getting a better life.
Ranma accepting his girl side.
Ranma & Akane being friends.
Ranma having friends.
Nabiki being outsmarted and getting her just desserts.
The character flaw of Nodoka believing the best of her hubby, but then realizing later the truth.
So many to mention.

What I dislike:
Too much stuff that are about dresses and fashion that pads the story, but can actually be skipped. As such, the story felt as if the plot slowed to a crawl these past three chapters.

For me, the most interesting parts of the story were the ones dealing with internal crisis, such as when Ranma realized how happy she is as a girl there. Fashion and flirting are fun, but I feel like it's too much sometimes here.

Still, thanks for writing this story. We all need "Ranma goes away and becomes happy" fics. :)

I think I read the completed version somewhere else.

This fic is a hoot. It starts all innocent and cute, turns into informative piece on cultural clothing, and eventually turns into some sort of pretty dirty fetish story. This amuses me.

wow big chapter. you might want to think about spitting chapters this long in half to keep some people from getting frustrated from the length and stopping reading this story.

I lost my link to this but just found it again on my old computer.

I will admit I feel you over did the clothes but then again I know a lot of people greatly value such descriptiveness.

I do like the how you dealt with Akane and especially Kasumi.

I get the impression Ranma resembles a powerlifter I met once, she would be very plump but not quite fat with enough muscle. So she is VERY firm.

I am not sure but I get the impression she may be stronger than when she lived in Nerima and as I remember she could lift a ton or two then. Does her size reduce her speed or is she as fast as she used to be?

Did I miss Ryoga's current state or have you dealt with him recently. I seem to remember he met Akari.

It is nice to see new chapters to this story. It has always been one of my favorites.
