Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3566724/1/The_Dark_Lords_of_Nerima Misc.: This story has a sequel titled The Dark Lords Strike Back (LINK), which is also Complete, and a third sequel is currently in the works. What starts out with a single Youma meeting Ryouga in her mad dash to not get killed by the Sailor Senshi leads to an over the top three way conflict between the Nerima Crew, the Dark Kingdom, and the Sailor Senshi as a consequence. The plot is fast paced, and the writing is hilarious at many points throughout. The only trouble I had with this fic is there were too many fight scenes, but even so they were very well written. Ranma and Ryouga set up an over-the-top hammy scenario to buy time for the rest of the crew, leading directly into the events in the sequel, known as The Dark Lords Strike Back. The second sequel focuses on the fight between The Dark Kingdom and a hodge-podge collection of many different factions and tribes from the Ranma setting banding together in an all out brawl against them, along with the growing relationships between various characters. The third chapter when it first came out pissed off a lot of people due to the author using the Sailor Moon reset button after all that character growth and drama, but the author managed to make a decent save by the final chapter of that arc. There is a third sequel in the works, and it will appear at the fukufics forums where it will be put up for constructive criticism before it gets posted at FFN. Overall, the first story gets a 5/5 from me due to the quality and hilarity of the work, but the second sequel gets a 4/5 from due to the fact that the third chapter of it felt like such a letdown, even if the author did make a half-assed save with the final chapter.
