Review of chapter "Prologue - The Long Kiss Goodnight" from lellow
Review:
'One for duty... two for love ... and mummy's makes three'

i think that is the best line in the whole thing! i was like... awesome Now i have to review!

Personally I like that Kenshin struggles with killing, its what makes his character so human. which is why Kenshin being a ruthless non-repentant killer is kind of weird for me to read.. but you have a good writing style and hey.... i bought it....

i'm also very glad you killed off Kaoru... bout time that woman died! If you ask me she should've died when enishi 'killed' her.... i prefer Kenshin as a solo act... which you did... so ...yay!

Review of story "The Color of Death" from draconis
Review:
Good scene.

Only thing I would have questioned was the Slayer's decision not to stake him immediately rather than trying to get him out of 'public view'. After all, it's not like a bunch of stoned hippies would make credible witnesses.

Can we thank the Slayer for making sure that Kenshin failed to take out Janis(?) at the time?
Comments from author:
Yay! You got it!

:)

Eh, she was a hippy. She didn't want to stake him in front of the audience, because it would have put a damper on the mood ;). Besides, she wasn't a very good slayer anyway (according to the wikipedia page). Any slayer that is all peace and love and joins a commune isn't worth her salt, in my book :).

Review of chapter "Summertime" from Piratxchic
Review:
I'm making a wicked guess, but based on the time, I think it might be Grateful Dead, wasn't their performance full of Tech problems, and they kept getting shocked by their guitars?
Comments from author:
Nope. Close though. :)

Review of chapter "Summertime" from DarkGoddess
Review:
Wow, Vampire!Kenshin getting stoned at Woodstock. It's hilarious, though a little disturbing. Anyway, would Kenshin's target happen to be Beryl MacKenzie, Nikki Wood's predecessor of questionable canonicity?
Comments from author:
Nova Scotia chick? That would be the slayer, yes ;). I don't know much about her, other than what it says on the time line... and that she's a pacifist slayer from a commune just 'screams' woodstock ;).

http : // buffy.wikia.com / wiki /Slayer_timeline

But the ten point question is... who is his assassination target?

Review of chapter "Auf Wiedersehen" from Azula
Review:
Wow... just... wow. Very nice chapter, and great use of the German slayer. Kenshin tossing the child's body into the river was just... chilling. He's certainly not going to be a very happy camper if he gets his conscience back, that's for sure.
Comments from author:
Thanks!

Review of chapter "Auf Wiedersehen" from cwolf
Review:
someone said once that the creator of Kenshin had to turn the series over at the last bit to other writers. His response to the hero dying alone of a disease was the equivalent of "What the h***?"

which... means that as far as the original creator is concerned, the hero riding off on a boat with a lovely woman before the credits roll was the end. heh
Comments from author:
Oh, I know... I think his exact words were something like 'I prefer happy endings'.

And personally, so do I. But I have to tell you, out of all the animes I've seen over the years, the Samurai X OVAS are --by far-- the most memorable. And they were all thoroughly depressing.

Review of chapter "Auf Wiedersehen" from DarkGoddess
Review:
Sweet chapter. I really enjoyed the fight between Kenshin and Sonnenblume. As far as writing in Melaka Fray, I don't think it would really be all that hard, the 'Time of Your Life' arc pretty much showed that time travel can be done in the Buffyverse. Besides, that'd be really cool since no one seems to ever use her.
Comments from author:
Darth Willow can do the time travel thing, but not on the Buffy end of the timeline. *Shudders* Anyway, I have some ideas for a Frey crossover story. Melaka Frey just... rocks. Coolest. Slayer. Ever.

Mebbe I'll get around to writing it after I finish this one up :). She certainly could use some love on this site, that's for sure!

Another good, but sad chapter. I hope that Kenshin regains his humanity someday.

Review of chapter "Time Flies when you're Having Fun" from AlphaBeta
Review:
Good two chapters, and I am glad you only went as far as you did. To clear up my thoughts on Kenshin turning into a vampier, I would have rather he die in Kaoru's arms then he become a vampier. Yes it was sad, but a more fitting ending. Not that I am saying I do not like your story, but IMO, I think it is sadder him turning into a vampire. Keep up the good work. Hoppfully you can use this as an excuse to keep Kenshin style going. When his master finds out about that, he could really teach Kenshin's son, and then he can pass it on and so on, so when your story catches up to today, someone will be around with that style. And hopefully someone will teach a Slayer it. I hope you can use some of that.

Review of chapter "Time Flies when you're Having Fun" from DarkGoddess
Review:
Neat stuff in this chapter. The idea of vampire!Kenshin working for Wolfram and Hart is scary indeed. I'm also glad to see you're utilizing one of the girls from Tales of the Slayers. Ever since I read it I've had some plot bunnies involving them, but nothing that's ever come to fruition. Any chance we'll be seeing Nikki Wood or some of the vamps from Tales of the Vampires?
Comments from author:
Hmm... Nikki Wood would be really... interesting. But no, I've got no plans on throwing her in the loop. She was based out of NY anyway, and we won't be going there ;).

I tell you though, if I could think of a way to feasibly write Melaka Frey into this story line, I'd do it in a heart beat. ;)

Review of chapter "Family Matters" from KeriMcVean
Review:
So far I really like this story. It is sad that what happened to kenshin and his family, but I think it fits so well with the darkness of a Buffy story. I'm looking forward to seeing where you go with this. I'm guessing that since you left Kenji alive, Satsu may be a decendant?
Comments from author:
Kenji will definitely make another appearance ;).
