Oh okay, but not younger than in age when he's already almost grown to his full size, because he looked very tall there already. Linali looked like between 7 and 10. And in that death-flashback-thingy of Linali she looked already older than when she met Rabi (again Hoshino-sensei's marvelous drawing of age differences ^^;; )
Anime often make the main pairing that's often in the manga only hinted or rather weak displayed obvious. Or in OHSHC's case they took the one with the MAIN main male and the girl.

Aye, in any case she was very young and Komui was already an adolescence. She said she couldn't remember the time before she was taken away from home, means she couldn't remember her parents, only her brother. But all these ages-differences of each look of Linali and so on and so forth...are confusing...A LOT. The anime messed up often. But that little picture was in the ending for a brief moment and I only saw it once. But I CAN remember Linali laughing at Komui, holding his hands, looking up (and they were walking away, means you can see their backs and half of their faces... at least Linali's).
Yup, the result is the same. As long as it isn't too fluffy romantic for a shounen-genre series....

Ha, he was nearly an adolescent when she was born. xD I think she can remember her parents - she knows what happened to them, and definitely remembers being taken away, so she was probably exaggerating about having been there since she was young. (The flashback of her kidnapping was from her perspective, and that image of her crying in Komui's arms was, too - and they must've been in China then, since they were wearing Chinese clothes.)
Who cares about the fluff, there's romance. xD And there's enough action to keep it a good shounen series. Well, not good, because the anime sucks, but you know.

Yes, he was was a teenager when he got a sister. She remembers the time she got kidnapped, but maybe she can't remember her parents and their departure, since she says she can't remember earlier. Maybe Komui told her everything he knew about their parents?
...seriously, when there's too much fluff for a pairing it happens that I begin to hate the pairing...especially when it's for a shounen-series.

They might have gotten away of the Akuma without help of an exorcist, or ran away without the exorcist knowing. You DO know that these are more or less random speculations of mine....therefore it has become almost pointless to continue on...
I already stopped watching the anime, but not because of this reason. I'm liking these tiny hints of fluff in the manga, because they are rare and it's possible to interpret otherwise, while in the anime it can be pure fluff in some moments.

The exorcist came and Komui&Linali ran away...there are some possibilities of how it might have happened and since we aren't sure of the facts it's really only up to the fantasy of the reader how it might have happened. Right now it isn't important. The result is that both Komui and Linali ended up in the Black Order =3
I like these manga hints a lot more than the ones in the anime^^
