Allen's arm hasn't disappeared, it's now his sword. Some sort of Equivalent Exchange....if you ask me. You can't gain something without giving something of the same value (yay, FMA xD)
True, but swinging a sword with one hand is weaker than with two hands.. it also looks kind of weird... a man with one hand fighting with a sword..
How kan grab stuff, while fighting..?
How kan he block? (like they do in bleach, using two hands)
If he trips, what will he use to stop the fall? ^^
Seeing a one armed man fight just looks... i cant find a word :P
(sorry for my bad bad bad English=P)
nah, look at shanks from OP, he's got one arm and fights with a sword, granted we've never actually seen him fight fight, but i'm sure it will be awesome.
*Allen's sword looks like some kind of reverse Lero (since Lero is the Earl's sword - yes, a pumpkin-headed umbrella golem is a sword), and that's probably intentional.
*What WAS up with Rinari's Innocence? I still don't understand that. (Why did her Innocence become some huge thing, and why is her synchro rate higher than Allen's was until this chapter?)
*I always suspected Allen would become a General, but... not this soon. It's cool. Now that it seems like there *must* be five - I'm taking bets on when Tiedoll is going to die, anyone? ^_^
*I think Rabi will get himself out of the illusion, but he's about as important as Chaozi right now.
*Allen's sword IS his arm. He basically pulled his arm out into a sword. Which is kind of creepy, but cool at the same time. It's not like one-armed swordsmen can't fight (although I question his ability to use a sword at all). And anyway, where would he get the sword from? Air?
As for his fighting ability, we'll have to see... I don't think weight is a problem (it was a question in one of those pages about how Rabi can lift his hammer - apparently, Innocence lets you do that), but I agree that he'll have trouble using it. Especially since TIKI CAN PASS THROUGH THINGS. (*whack* *fwoosh* "Hey! I was supposed to hit you!")
*Allen > Kanda. Sorry, but a katana just can't stand up to the Giant Sword of Shounen Manga Heroes.
waaaaaaaaaaaaaah what an aesome chapter
awww what will happen to his cuuuuulllll custome? I like the exorcist costume but the clown look is much better.
I hope the cape of his innocence will cover the left arm space hahahahah
Swords are cool, but used too much in anime/manga:P
I dont like the fact that allen went from a claw to a sword. He should have turned into some Holy beast or something.
I also think we should get to se him use that mask often, its so cool!
Whats funny is that he just got his new clown thingy, and now he gets a sword... something bad has to happen, its moving too quick! :P
Maybe after this, he is not allowed to use the sword too much, cause it drains too much energy and he might die.. That also means he cant be a general.. YET.
I think the sword fits, actually. ^_^ I mean, yes, it's an overused cliche in manga, but... well, how many sword-users pull it out of their arm? (Anyway, it *is* his arm, so I assume the shape is kind of limited.)
I think Allen will be a general at the end of this - some kind of balance, you know? It's like they have to have five generals. However... I still think he'll lose to Tiki. Tiki *did* kill a general himself, which means that he's a lot stronger than we suspect, especially since he didn't pull out the guy's heart.
Besides, Allen needs to die somehow so that Rinari's dream comes true (and she gets a power-up too).
...Anyone else hoping we see the other Exorcists soon? And maybe one dies? =D
I have a feeling that the series is ending soon =\ do you guys feel it too?
