Totally awesome story I really hope that you update soon. Though I think that yo should use the dragon balls to bring back anya since her soul was not destroyed.

Review of chapter "Episode 85: Double Your Fun, Double Your Danger" from brokenangel
Well I like the story..I really do. Not really into the whole Wesley/Faith thing mainly because I'll always see him as the gutless wonder from BTVS. Are you ever going to continue the What if Scenario? I enjoyed that immensely.
Comments from author:
Which "What If?" Scenario. There are multiple.

Review of chapter "Episode 84: Conversations with Dead People" from Sadfru
I know it was a huge battle and Xander got all beat up showing how powerful it was but it just seems kinda anti climatic, more due to how big and nasty they made the first for the last season, leaving all those plot holes and inconsistencies any who loved the chapter have to admit the resemblance to the 7th season episode had me skimming over certain parts to get to the nitty gritty but it's all good. now they can relax a bit...Wonder how they are going to destroy 'Hell'?

On a side not can you clarify something about souls, are they all ending up in the firsts stomach, under a gods control etc because the gods monopoly made it sound like it in the previous arcs, then the 'angels' were added, are the 'angels' going to end up as zealots of some elder god (think Raiden), it would explain why the so called 'God' (capital G) relies on faith as to it's existence instead of showing it's face, the elder gods rules of non interference see.

In any case I wonder how many flames you'll get from involving Christianity, Till next time :)
Comments from author:
Only the souls on the Hellmouth went to hell, and I know of two exceptions. The first is Gunn, whose soul was destroyed/consumed by the SoulEater Bunny demon. The other one... well, that's telling. As for the rest of the souls, you'll have to keep reading, you'll see. Most souls though, like the souls who were in the First, they're just gone.

Review of chapter "Episode 83: The Past, The Present, and no Refunds" from Guardian
I went through the BZ saga from chapter 1 to here, the current chapter. Says a lot about the story if there's someone willing to read 83 episodes of fiction (plus the DBZ rewrites). Overall I like the saga very much, but there have been a few things I'm not very giddy with (hey, you're the author, you can do what you like and I'm not telling you what to do, just expressing my opinion).
1. Buffy is getting a lot of shit thrown at her throughout the saga. A bit too much in my opinion. Sure she's screwed up a from time to time (not staking Angelus as soon as he lost the soul - but hey -debatable if that's good or bad considering Angel became one of the greatest champions out there. On the other hand, neither did Xander though it would have been laughably easy for him to dust Angel. Based on that you could say that Xander failed to step up as a hero on a lot of occasions all because he wanted to keep himself hidden, thus leading to the death of a lot of people. On that note wasn't that fear that Frieza could sense him a bit too irrational? After all his father invented the trans-dimensional travel and the lab got blown up with the rest of the planet) but nobody is perfect. Whatever happens, Buffy seems to be the one getting the most abuse in the saga (if we leave out Faith's past). What's with the bias against her? Going all S&M on Spike/Harm, constant self-doubting etc. seems a bit too out of character. In the show Buffy came unhinged only when something truly bad happened (Dawn got taken by Glory/resurrection). Here she seems to be pretty insane most of the time - and main reason seems to be her inability to cope with the fact that Xan-man is now stronger than her. She has fought enemies that were stronger than her before so it seems kinda strange for her to start getting delusional because Xander suddenly got tough.

2. Vamps using chi - are they not dead bodies animated by a demon? Then where the hell comes the chi - the life force? Wouldn't it have had more sense to say they use their demonic energies? In the show vamps are described as cold, no heartbeat, no breath (unless they want to - you know, for speaking, smoking, oral...pleasures). So where do they get their life energy?

got some questions too - 1) Oz gonna show up at some point? Coz - he's cool... Would be nice to see him making an appearance or something. Would a werewolf be like the equivalent of the saiyan? - both transform at the full moon, just maybe the over-abundance of the energy in this dimension prevents them becoming giant werewolves, acting as a compression chamber of a sorts :P (fantasy running wild here).
2) You named this one "Angels Saga" but I don't see more of Angel in this saga than the previous ones. Is he going to be more in the spotlight later on?
3) Is Gunn finito - done for and all the jazz?
4) What is Xander going to do about Raiden? He's been kinda helpful, so is he off his "beat up on sight, then beat up some more, and if it still moves, blow it to smithereens" list of Gods?
Comments from author:
Point 1: I don't consider Angel a great champion, more like the opposite. He's a selfish bastard who let an army of demons loose on the world. Indeed Xander 'failed', but at least he had a good reson. Buffy is very much the same character as in the show, the same personality. The reason for her going nuts are that her whole worldview is tossed upside down, and has less to do with Xander being stronger, than everyone else including her kid sister surpassing her, and thinking SHE needs protection while she's the Slayer that should be protecting them. This is rather expounded upon in the episodes just before her transformation, the transformation itself, and episodes just after. And indeed, Buffy has that superiority complex that sent her over the edge, she had it before becoming the Slayer and being a cheerleader bitch worse than Cordelia, and she still has it much later: she even explicitly admits she has it in S7 episode "Conversations with Dead People". Do notice she's managed to beat that major character flaw. She no longer has that complex, and if you look at her from the that side of her character she might now seem to be self-doubting, but she really isn't: she knows her limitations, that's all. Now though, Buffy's on the way up, she's back to being her old loveable self from season 1, minus a superiority complex that got her to do the most damnable things.

Point 2: What do you think a demon is? Literally translated 'deamon', means 'spirit'. And what is 'chi', and 'life force' but 'spiritual' energy. So indeed, vampires have chi, demonic chi, but chi nontheless.

Question 1: There's no plan for Oz to show up. And no, a werewolf is not the equivalent of a Saiyan. A saiyan is a species, a werewolf is a human infected by a disease. Also, Xander transformed in his giant monkey state even here, he was not a small monkey, but a giant one.

Question 2: If this were the saga of "Angel the Vampire" it would be Angel's Saga. (Notice the comma). As it is, it's the Angels Saga, as in those Angels that are sent to convince Dawn she must believe in God and use her keyness to defeat the human evil.

Question 3: Yes.

Question 4: Xander can't hurt Raiden, whether he wants to or not. At the moment he's on the list, but it won't really stay that way.

Review of chapter "Episode 83: The Past, The Present, and no Refunds" from Sadfru
Are you going to do more on what exactly is the first, like how you made the PTB into bitches playing chess with lives and useing them for pleasure, or leave it as the intangible personification of evil itself...can't see that since you have at least another 4 saga titles afterwards and it would be pretty hard to top a force that had been around for all of existance growing more powerful with every evil dead, blah, blah, blah.

When is there going to be a superhuman for the BZ-verse, given the difference in power wouldn't dawn have been able to reach it in the DBZ-verse when they visited, is there going to be a superhuman 2 level, and is there more to buffy and her beau's relationship, cause it seems kinda weird...much better than a corpse...but weird

That's all, thanks for the epic that doesn't suck ass...although I can't really talk my attempts don't make over 15 pages on word...and it still sucks :)

PS is Xanderzone shut down it hasn't been active for months, or is it simply lack of stories
Comments from author:
The First and its nature will come up in the next episode.

As for Super Human: no. It doesn't matter what the surrounding energy levels are, it's the person that matters. When it comes to Super Human it's more skill than power. In fact, since the Super Human comes from pulling energy directly out of another plain of existence, the more energy (Buffy verse) the more easier it would be, and thus HARDER in the DBZ-verse. Hence Krillin and co. considering how much easier they can do things in the Buffy-verse, and that it was as if they were "coming home"

Krillin reached Super Human level 2 in "Hero Defined", the DBZ/SM crossover 'meanwhile' story. Which you can find on here I believe, as well as on my homepage.

The Yahoo group XanderZone gets still lots of stories. The Archive hasn't been updated mainly due to reasons from the archiver, and that it's becoming too big to handle on his own.

Review of chapter "Episode 81: Choose your Destiny - It Waits for No One" from Trom
Finally read all of the Z series and like them, you obviously take a lot of time on them and I am greatful. Although when the time comes to release the super vamps I can just see them smirk and blow the them away. I guess that means no army of Slayer look forward to the rest of the series. Might be cool if you did something with the Majin Buu series. I mean Xander is already super 4 and gohan is still super 3 so they should take Buu out easy. Anyway it is something to think about

Review of chapter "Episode 79: Back to School" from (Past Donor)JoeHundredaire
Ah, my bad. Given the general nature of the content of the chapter, though, it's hardly surprising my mind misinterpreted your intentions with the "do her sister's ass too" sentence.

Review of chapter "Episode 80: Potential Trouble - International Rescue" from (Past Donor)JoeHundredaire
Considering some of the stuff I've written I never thought I'd say this, but I could really do without half of the sexual stuff you seem to be intent on cramming into your work. I'll admit to taking part in a little PWP fun here and there, although most of my stuff does tend to be part of the plot, but it's never good when people can yawn, and hit page down a few times until the next scene starts, and not miss any events that would impact their knowledge of the story.

The ass-fucking thoughts on Buffy's part didn't do anything for the story nor did they seem natural to the character, and until her tryst with Spike, we never saw her as an especially sexual person. Xander and Anya are really the only two people in BtVS (Anya more-so than Xander) I can see going at it frequently just for the hell of it; with most anyone else it just feels forced.

In the entire chapter 'ass' is not once on its own. In the entire chapter 'butt' does not once appear. In the entire chapter 'fuck', does not appear, not even as an expletive. What the FUCK are you talking about?
