Devil Ninja, Chapters 15 & 16

Thunder Dragon: First of when are you going to give The Legend Of Gaia's Sennin an update(I love that story)? second I have an arch request to make if its okay with you. While you are not killing off Issei in this arch now, can you down the line? and have Draig eventually transferred to Naruto? I have a plot ready just in case you want it.

Say that later down the line Issei after the arch when and where he meets up with Vali, gets into a fight with him and gets killed but before Issei bites the dust he transfers Draig over to Naruto in order to fight against the Old Satan Faction and other enemies down the road. Naruto after feeling guilty about not being able to save one of his buddies and feeling even more guilty by remembering how he could not save his old friends, gets ambushed by members of the Old Satan Faction and some of Naruto's old allies who were resurrected by The Old Satan faction who found out about Naruto's past(how this happens is up to you). This arch would give Naruto a chance to let go of the past and forgive himself, also it would give Naruto a chance to develop some new skills and branch out his skills while working with and develop some new techniques working with Draig.

Third I really do not see Issei and Akeno being a really legit couple so break them up.

Answer: I'll see what I can do about updating Gaia's Sennin, but I make no promises. Right now, my creative juices seem to be flowing toward Devil Ninja, so that is what I'll be writing for now.

Also, no, I will no longer kill off Issei. The time where his death would have served any purpose is long gone. Now his death would simply be me killing off a character for no reason. While I have no issues killing people off for the sake of moving the story forward, I don't kill people off for no reason. Also, even if Issei DID get killed off, Naruto would never get the Boosted Gear. Boosted Gears don't “transfer over” to people. When the Sacred Gear user dies, the Sacred Gear finds a new owner who hasn't been born yet. People with Sacred Gears are BORN with their Sacred Gears. Besides, it would be stupid to give someone as powerful as Naruto another power. He doesn't need any extra power. He's already a badass.

And I'm not even gonna talk about the IsseixAkeno pairing. There's a pole for that.

Akenaru: I liked to see Naruto is back, the only thing i didn't like about the chapter and the story is the Akeno-Issei interactions, i hate them being together because it happens for no reason at all, so i hope people voted like me and break that awful pairing, so Naruto can be with Akeno, Issei didn't deserve a girl like her, hell he didn't even deserve a girl like Asia but meh. So i'm hoping that Isse and Akeno break, what they want, but seeing your develope it doesn't seem that they go to far so is easy to break their "relationship". Anyway maybe we got lucky and you update soon.

Answer: Your ignorance is showing. It's clear to me that you're one of the people who's only watched the anime, or maybe read the first 2 volumes of the Light Novel. Issei is far from being unworthy of having Akeno as a girlfriend. Is it true that she first started teasing him to rile up Rias, but Issie is the one who actually helped Akeno accept her Fallen Angel blood and repaired the broken bond between her and Baraqiel. Also, the reason it feels like they became a couple for no reason is because I don't bother showing their relationship. Neither Issei nor Akeno are main characters. I gave Issei some time to shine in this arc, but most of this arc has been about Rias and Kiba.

HIMandHERnotTHEM: Having given up on the actual manga long ago, I wasn't warded off this from the lack of Naruto for the most part as you did a fair recount of how the fights would have gone. On the other hand, I came here for a Naruto story where he was actually part of the story, sooooo~...

But I digress.

I feel that you are getting a little frustrated with the fan base, as you felt the need to move from your original story and I'm sorry for that. An author shouldn't have to alter their work for anyone other than themselves and only if it no longer fits the overarching theme they want to build. That being said, I thing killing Issei off just because Naruto was an ass that didn't want to get directions would have broken his core character and his persona. I don't think it would have worked.

Now as for Issei/Akeno... That never should have happened in the first place as it was unwarented in the manga and made worse here. We NEVER saw any kind of development between the two, nor were we given any examples from the source to fall back on. Having that would have made it at least bearable. But to have her just up and leave him at this point would be a mistake as it undermines a future relationship between anyone else. She (and you) chose her bed. She will need a damned good reason to get out of it.

At this point, I feel they should just be moved to a position where they can work out a realistic love life for the sake of story or kill Issei off in a way that Naruto would have had NO WAY to prevent it. Like when he was supposedly rebirthed from Great Red or something. Like I said, gave up on the manga LONG ago.

Also, if having Naruto be a wall for plot is bothering you because of his power, why not handle it like -some other anime;)- did and just make it plausibly deniable for Naruto to be in two places at once (figuratively speaking of coarse)

I mean, Naruto had the power to fight Madara and Tobi, but the others didn't. People died in the war and he couldn't stop it. If he's not able to bring the full brunt of his power to the fight for fear of annihilating the city Kokabiel might get a lucky shot at Issei or something. I don't know.

I do think she fit better with Naruto than Issei but I don't feel him being dumped would be fair to any of them.

Hope you can figure it out in a way You will be satisfied and to hell with the fans. It is your work after all.

Til the next exciting update,

Answer: Rather than the manga, I think you need to read the light novels. They do a far better job of developing their characters.

Of course you never saw them develop. Even in this arc, where I show Issei more than I have for most of the series, he and Akeno were never the main focus. They are, at best, secondary characters. The main focus of this arc was Rias and Kiba. Kiba because this arc is about his past, and Rias because I wanted to showcase how different she has become since Naruto entered her life. My intention for this arc was never to bring Issei and Akeno's relationship to the fore, but to showcase how some of the characters have been affected by Naruto. Chances are, if the pole ends up in favor of Akeno staying with Issei, you will never see anything from them again. There might be vague mentions of it, but it won't be focused on at all, and more of something that you see in the background.
