Why doesn't this have more reviews!? I love this story and how you've filled in the time Joe was away from the team. It's so well thought out and I think you've got the characters pegged. There are so many standout emotional moments in this fic. For example in the beginning, when Ken visits Joe's grave and thinks about how he still half expects him to come running in late when they're called for a mission, and him second guessing leaving Joe behind at Karakoram. Or the part where Jun reflects on what happened after Joe's passing, with her doing his laundry (etc) made my eyes leak. Then there's Joe himself, trying to keep his former teammates safe, part of him secretly wishing he could be with them, the other half insisting they'll reject him. Very realistic.

Being kinda person with good fantasy and with mind never having rest, I've though the Original Gatchaman Universe to pieces while trying to imagine and describe the life of the Team between the missions, and all other events that happened off-screen. The most intriguing thing is, of couse, Joe's life between Gatchaman and Gatchaman II. Since this is the only fanfic about the period of Gatch Universe History, it couldn't be bad. But it's not bad even without the fact it's unique. It's large; the plot is really of somewhat amazing; the characterization is well-kept. Finally we saw the true face of Dr. Rafael. This fanfic describes the characters' deep inner feelings quite well, whic is also a plus. So, for having Joe living his new life through in the time of middle-Gallactor peace, I'll thank Diinzumo and put a highest rating to this fic.
