-> '''SPARTAN-III/Eric-G239:''' ''"Trouble? You speak of a thing you don't understand, Candidate. You never fought in the last war. You never served. Never went clip-dry in a foxhole, surrounded by red-flags and hurting on all things but your own squad mates. Never watched as the only people you ever knew got taken from you, one by one. Mission by mission, piece by piece."''

Katsuhiro describes Chimera Rising as "A bridging story between The Enemy of my Enemy and its sequel. The story concerns the creation of a Spartan 4 team; their origins, their training, their rivalry with other fireteams. The story is intended to shift from an origin story to a more hard contact military sci-fi story, similar in scope to The Enemy of my Enemy, albeit with a more immediately personal focus." Which means that, even with the story finished, there's still more in store.

Finally, at some point after Enemy of My Enemy was written, Katsuhiro found the TV Tropes page for it and has been a dedicated troper ever since. So much so that when he was asked if there was anything specific he wanted on this page, all he replied with was OneOfUs.

Chimera Rising keeps to the same high standards of writing that Katsuhiro set in Enemy of My Enemy, but it's promising to be a much longer story. At over twenty-five chapters, it is already almost as long as Enemy of My Enemy, and the main plot is still far from resolved.

While it's nominally a sequel, there haven't been any major appearances by Enemy of My Enemy characters. There have been a number of cameos and small references to the planet Crassus keep popping up, but it seems unlikely that major appearances will be made.
