It really would have been nice if this one had been continued. I used to play 1st edition Shadowrun back in the late 80's/early 90's. Ranma would have fit rather well into the world, especially as a physical adept, heck he would only be initially at the same level as a veteran physical adept if you exclude the chi attacks. He might even have made a combat mage. All the skills to start with, and not having to sacrifice his essence. The only complaint I would have is if he were to revert to troll, dwarf, or orc. If you did have him revert to Elf, that stigma plus his gender switching, he would make a near invisible person though at the VERY bottom of the social order. Even gaijin are more respected than those who change.

This fic has several things going for it. Since I know nothing about the Samuri series that plays another role, I'll go off what I know. Which is the Ranma portion. You kept the characters mostly in character, however there were one or two times Ranma seemed a bit OOC. For instance, Ranma wouldn't leave Akane to Happosai for anything. First, he'd take the oppertunity to smash the pervert into the dirt, and second he doesn't like anyone touching Akane. You have a very nice set up and plot was interesting. I don't know if the salesmen are OC or from the other series. Which opens up one of your weaknesses. You assume everyone knows these people. Though you do a good job of introducing most of them, you may want to think of a better way to introduce Ranma. Like not saying his name until Akane yells it. Instead do the opening sequence with him nameless.
