Well, this has changed some since I first saw it on FF.NET. For the most part I like the changes, though there were a few things though. In no particular order: -Story is more more coherent and believeable now, though still seemed off in spots. To me it still moves a bit fast, but I realized that in this format, you wanted to get to the school part fast rather than rehash it all. -You still have that line in there implying Ranma missed Akanes cooking when he left the Tendos. -When Ranma tells Fujiko exactly what art he practices, she states to him "Anything Goes", but that is not really correct, only Ranma ever really calls it that, it is really "Indiscriminent Grappling". -By having the Tendos and Saotomes related, and that being the reason for the cancellation of the engagement, you cut out a potential relationship you had prior of Ranma/Kasumi match, though in some ways this may be better, as Ranma can get much from a sibling type relationship. Quite a mix of students. It will be interesting to see how he deals with the equivelent of A-ko and B-ko, not to mention a couple of the others. Nice to see not leaving the original student characters out. Might be nice to see more scenes with Ranma training Fujiko, as boy or girl. Also, I did not really like how that series left her, maybe some good could come from a friendship with Ranma and her, maybe take the edge off her personality.
