Their first meeting is pretty different! But they still hit off so well, so easily, and I think it comes across as so because they've been written together for so long now, they fit so comfortably around each other.
Hah! You might be right. Nezu and I have been writing these guys for almost six years, and Nezu's been writing Genma for way longer. I am DELIGHT that you're enjoying them. They're always fun to write. :D
I love that the shinobi have stereotypes based on their specialty - it makes a fair bit of sense but its kind of amusing and lends to the feeling of the world/society feeling real.
Oh GOOD. Some of my favorite things to see are people's weird little superstitions and stereotypes coming into play. We're likely to see more of them come up as Legacy progresses.
I kept grinning the whole way through 'Field of Daggers', because my brain kept going 'This is it this is it, they've met and they're going to be awesome and they're feeling each other out and finding that they fit like a good captain and lieutenant BUT OH MANNN ITS GENMA AND RAIDOU AND HENCEFORTH GREATNESS WILL COME
*LAUGHS!* Awwwwwww. <3 I hope they live up to that. >.>
Raidou seems like such a solid captain to have,
That is my hope! Though he is brand shiny new at this, so there should be some interesting teething troubles coming up, particularly with the crew he's going to inherit.
Genma being a capable medic is awesome I always liked his mother-hen tendencies, and how he's one of the more elegant men around. In the sense that he's still quite, you know, manly, but he's a classy one. The bit where he politely suggested that Kakashi be given hashirido at the hospital made me appreciative of his courtesy and etiquette. It sort of smooths over ruffled feathers, and he seems exceedingly competent.
This is a really lovely analysis, and I think you are spot-on accurate. There should be at least ONE guy with a concept of tact and manners in the middle of this rabble.
It also serves as a nice contrast to Raidou (even their diet choices at the canteen!)
Yesssss. That's partially why I really like the captain/lieutenant concept in this version of ANBU. It's a much better system of checks and balances.
She and Raidou are a nice match, I think! She's so small and energetic and a bit of a brat when she's cheerful, and it fits really nice with Raidou's onii-chan vibe. And he takes care of her when she's decidedly not okay, and I don't know but it's awfully comforting to read.
Hurt/comfort, man. It is the emotional balm of writing. And there will be LOTS more of it, you can be sure.
Also, YES. I really enjoy the whacky broship of Katsuko and Raidou. They're an entirely different balance, and very, very fun to write. I'm so glad you enjoy them. :D
You know how it is when you read a book or watch a movie for the first time and then after that you're sort of disappointed because the joy of discovering them and watching your favourite events unfold for the first time will never again be available to you? Well, legacy has kind of solved that. Here, in all their glory, are the coolest ninja ever, meeting again, fighting again, bonding again.
This is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said about us. I really hope you continue to be delighted with Legacy. Thank you so, so much for sharing your thoughts. <3
