|Reviews for Soul Anomaly|
| hazelnutbrew chapter 13 . 1/25
Okies I had to go through the reviews and see which chapter I reviewed last to continue on this epic story of sorts, and I think the last chapter I reviewed was chapter 12, I see. A lot of the story is fast paced and has nice action and characters to go along with it. It reads just like a manga with the manga and anime archteypes that we adore in our favorite shows and manga and such, which is only natural that this story is up my alley! Though I'm not good at handing out critique, if you're looking for that, because I believe that every story has something to them that will draw an audience towards them and taking away an author's unique fingerprint on a story would only do the author a disservice and dissuade them away from their unique voice. Not that, of course, critique is bad or anything like that, though my advice is to simply to keep on doing what you're doing, because you're obviously doing something right to have so many readers on your story! There's good reason why this is popular, especially with the animesque feel and tone, and omg when I got to Vincent (there's another Vincent I think of too and I HATE HIM and this VINCENT IS JUST TERRIBLE BECAUSE OMG HOW DARE HE WISH TO REMOVE OUR HERO, WHO HE CALLS AN IMPURITY). You've done a good job establishing Yuichi's sympathetic factor (narcissistic he is) and people might say it's overplayed and a little offputting, but I figure, a character doesn't start off perfect and maybe part of his character arc is to learn to trust and help others rather than relying solely focused on himself and his beauty. Though as established earlier, we've seen that he goes to great lengths to protect those he cares about and though he may seem like a little shit when it comes to praising himself and his genius, he's actually got some qualities that make him admirable and he's definitely got one of the most memorable personalities for protags, I've got to say.
Anyway I wanted to thank you for reviewing my story. I know that I should've gotten around to reviewing more of this story and whatnot, but I guess procrastination got the better of me. Haha. Though of course it doesn't mean your story bored me or anything, it's very good and I know there's a reason why it has so many fans, including myself. I just sometimes have a hard time motivating myself to read, though since I decided to write and post more things on Fictionpress, I decided to reciprocate the reviews I've received. I always appreciate comments because then I know what I'm doing right, and what I could do better. When it comes to me reviewing though, I'm just a cheerleader, not the best at giving writing advice or anything like that. So yeah, Vincent is just a horrible person and you've already made us root for Yuichi and thoroughly established Vincent as a villain who is overzealous in 'cleansing the world' of what he believes to be 'impurities' and I think that's a very interesting antagonist to set up. Also the romance between Yuichi and Alicia is entertaining and there's a sort of tension between the two characters that makes their interactions a delight to read, and I'm invested in their relationship. I might review more at another point, when I get a mind to doing it, but thank you so much for your comment :3

Idk why you keep saying you can't write romance. The romance scenes you've made are pretty good.

It’s always good seeing another chapter up! Now onto the review!
Wind against Water. It was a very cool fight. I almost thought Mikoto had the fight won. Actually, I thought she was going to take Sairan with her. It was cool that Sairan managed to push her limits to take Mikoto out. I am just glad that Sairan didn’t die. I mean, just after reuniting with Alicia. It would’ve sucked.
I always said your villains have sad backstories. Mikoto’s was a sad one. Mao and Anzio took the vulnerable Mikoto and warped her. Sad thing is that she thought she was doing the right thing. Sairan called her on it.
Overall, this was a good chapter. Glad that Sairan is still among living. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next chapter.

An android weilding lightsabers, literally 2 things I can perverse over. Though I must admit Shagetora's piece of technology seems a bit out of place in the Underworld. It's probably the most advanced tech, not charged up by some kind of magic... other than the tri-racer pods (that is probably not what they're called).
Other than that, I love the fight. I feel like it's Avatar meets star wars. One can only wonder what you were listening to when you wrote this. Good Chapter.

Wow, having the two Caveatis-Porcina meet is a genius plot twist. There was so much happening that I forgot Anzio's original goal was to get back to the world of the living and choose a successor to the title.
What Sairan has a thing of Kuro... But... But
Kuro Butler Old guy Alfred. Yuck, I guess I need to stop thinking of Kuro as Alfred Pennyworth... and I need to catch up with the Manga also.
Seems everyone has been set up in there respective battles. Let's see where it takes us.

There's something I learned a long time ago, while I was a young boy waking up early in the mornings to watch Saturday cartoons, you can't go wrong with action pieces that involve motorcycles. Motorcycles action scenes can make a mediocre Chapter into a bearable one and a good chapter (like this one) into a great one (also much like this chapter).
As you can tell, I liked this chapter, it had great action and funny dialogue, especially Alexander. I like how he seems aware how awesome they are and is doing dramatic things during the fight to emphasize that, like a flipping stunt and escaping a dangerous attack at the last moment.
I was expecting an emotional conflict between Alicia and Sairan but the twist is also good. Subverting readers expectations with a well setup plot twist. Good chapter.

After a embarrassing start we bait us some terrorists, before going to jail to get some answers out of reality bending crooks, hopefully the rules at this Jigoku are not as lax as say, that jail from that Oz show lol.
But meanwhile, we have are strongest fictional baddie yet in the name of, Fiction? Though, sounds like Fiction is a agent of chaos based on that summary, though sounds like Fiction is going to make things even more messy. Only one way to find out, but till next time, congrats on making it to 1000 reviews, god damn.

Sorry, been a while but lets try and get back into this by taking a look at this stronger connection.
A bit of a regrouping chapter after the hectic few battles, a very exotic one that nearly ends up like a Porno movie, guess it held back from going all the way, nice bonding moment to show how Yuichi has grown I suppose.
| Kenshin Kojima chapter 107 . 10/7/2020
Another chapter! Awesome! Now onto my thoughts on this chapter!
Yuichi’s grandfather is a tough one — even though he was remotely controlling an android to fight. A nice touch, by the way, especially with him being in that condition. Of course, there were funny moments during their fight. It’s cool to see how you can always bring comedy in these fights. I mean, Diana’s reactions were priceless. LOL!
Still... I feel sorry for Diana. I felt even worst after reading her origin story. Hmm... I am guessing that Diana had met Jack without realizing it? She stated that she doesn’t even remember what he looks like. So for all we know — she probably already met him. But then again, I could be wrong.
Another good chapter! A bit bittersweet but still good.
Thanks for the read as always!
| Starart152 chapter 29 . 10/4/2020
This is a very fun filler chapter where the two boys are hunting to get pictures of the girls.
It's obvious that 00-Beautiful is Yuichi and 00-BFF is Ren as he is the best friend of Yuichi.
As for PAC-Leader, since he is calling the girls Ghosty, I can guess that it is Alicia father who planned to get those pictures, as he is a little like Yuichi n his attitude.
| Starart152 chapter 28 . 10/3/2020
This is a nice chapter with a little bit of the main plot coming through. The objective of the antagonist is still unknown, but they are bringing souls of the death for a purpose. I wonder who accepted to kill themselves to reach this objective and why.
It's clearly something very dangerous going on while Yuichi is being hunted by Alicia and did the least manly thing he could do, which is very funny.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! For a moment there, I thought it was going to be a presidential debate or something, but not. Camels . . . hahahahahahah!
| Fox Trot 9 chapter 3 . 9/13/2020
Hahahaha! Yuichi is one swell guy, isn't he? I guess, after that, whenever someone says, 'Go fuck yourself,' he can say proudly, 'I already have, and it felt good!' Hahahaha! And he's a lucky bastard, too, with two adorable girls worrying over him. As for this Alice, I'm kind of have an idea what her father said to her, but we'll find out in the next chapter!
| Fox Trot 9 chapter 2 . 9/13/2020
Well, it's been a long time, but I've decided to read this story again. I forgot I read this back in 2016 and tried to put my review, but it wouldn't let me. When I checked the reviews, there it was from the antiquated year of 2016. Dear God, so much has changed since then. And I was still using ellipses (...) back then, too.
Anyway, wow, I forgot how funny this Yuichi guy is. He's dead, and all he can think of is his friend getting laid and not him. So teenager! And so narcissistic that he can turn an impossible situation into a free striptease. Hehehehe. Funny!
| CrossPaladin chapter 1 . 8/31/2020
So this is the legendary Soul Anomaly? Well, I hear high praises from this story. I. the great Paladin Cross, shall begin the endeavor to read this tale! I hope it's up to my liking, but if what people say is true, then surely it will be.
That being said, I do expect our main hero to grow out of his arrogance, because quite frankly, it'd be really annoying on the protagonist. And, of course, you've got to start the story with a truck. Because who doesn't love trucks? They're the natural predators of Japanese teenagers.
