Hammer-power! Rabi's Innocence
Time to stir up some discussions, if all went well, that is.
This is from chapter 36
I just realize that Rabi have some question marks in his innocence. (In case my gray scale picture isn't helping, locate the arrows I marked on the picture)
I am assuming that the next time Rabi power up, some of his "question marked" power will be revealed and added, though I have no evidence to prove how I arrive to this conclusion.
In additon, I am trying to figure out whether there is a pattern within his seals... though reading the circle of kanji (starting from the left side just above the bubble "Crrow-chan" in the image above), I got
?, 水, 天,?, 木,?, 火,?,?, 地
which translate into
?, water, sky (or air or heaven), ?, wood, ?, fire, ?, ?, ground
For your information, I can't seem to figure out what the hidden pattern is. If the manga-ka is trying to use the elements of japan, which consist of sun, moon, fire, water, wood, metal, and earth, the pattern above is missing sun, moon, and metal (assuming that ground is substitutable for ground). However it wouldn't make sense anyway because there are only 7 elements, whereas his innocence have 10 slots. Plus, "sky" (or air or heaven) is not part of the element series.
I also tried matching the seals in pairs. Notice how "wood" is directly across "ground" and "water" is directly across "fire." I attempted to see whether the seals are "opposites," which worked for water because its opposite is fire. I also tried to see whether the seals are "related," such that wood is related to ground because wood grew from the ground. These two analysis seem to got me nowhere, as the opposite of sky (or air or heaven) is ground, which already existed.
So far we only seen several (or two?) of his attacks within the manga. I am assuming that all the other powers (ten total, with four or five question marks) will be revealed soon in the plot. But before that is shown, what kind of other power do you guys predict he will have? Also, what other kanji will fill in for the question marks?
