Did you notice that Allen finally appeared in Rabi's caged mind?
...of course you did...u.u; I mean, Allen was the only character in his mind that wasn't a zombie and hostile. That's interesting. And that Emo-Rabi had intervened right in that moment....and the card's picture...vanishing....
Well, this sucks.
Not only was I disappointed by zombie Linali's move (I knew she was gonna try and stab him), but we also got to see what an imbecilic asshole Rabi was.
He was just pretending to get along with everyone for the sake of recording history?! What a jerk.
I guess I was kinda relieved by Rabi's reaction. I mean, he has to have changed his mind at least a little after all that's happened.
The Allen zombie getting his head blown off (eyeball hanging, mind you) was just nasty.
I'm still a bit shocked at how banged-up Linalin was with all the bandages and didn't get any hints of a scar. xD
Let's see if Rabi suddenly starts coughing out blood while in his trance... or maybe the fact that the zombies finally got him means Rhode stabbde him up in reality... (?)
Agh, what the hell. NEXT!
o.O....I don't think that he really likes to have to be all over nice to equally everyone. As bookman-disciple he has to. It's not like he has much choice, as Bookman himself always keeps reminding Rabi of his real task - to record time. Rabi's suffering from that, since he had fallen for Linali lately.
The problem is that Rabi does care about these people now, which is why he was so upset at seeing them die. He's gotten too attached to them. The fact that he was so arrogant and nasty before is part of what I don't like, and that part is obviously still him - his other side. And the Rabi we know is just really weak. -__-;;
Rinari being injured... those could have been bruises or something, or surface wounds. *shrugs*
People can change, so did Rabi. And he still can change for the better. Let's hope he does before he'll die. He really cares for his companion right now, that's why it's so difficult for him to defeat the illusions in his mind, even if he knows that they're not real. Road knows and is taking advantage of it.
I want Rabi to go through an uncaring, arrogant phase before he dies. =P Well, later in the manga, of course. As much as he cares for his companions, that WAS the big complaint everyone had with Rinari (more so than her current weakness), and to hijack a character who was loved before for other reasons...
I think either if he comes out he'll be emotionally weird or he'll be uncaring. Like either traumatized or totally cool beyond emotion. Kind of like...well sort of like how Hanajima acts in Fruits Baskets most of the time- but without the dark foreboding cloud over him comically. Their's no way he's coming out of this just like he came in though. Too much has happened to try and cripple him psychologically.
Unfortunately, manga tend to have characters go through traumatizing events and then be perfectly normal afterwards (and from what we've seen of everyone's pasts, D.Gray-Man is one of them). I wouldn't be surprised if, upon escaping, the only change Rabi goes through is to be even more overprotective of everyone. Of course, it'd be nice to see him damaged or changed for the worse...
Buwahahaha Digi's evil. I do that too sometimes. I wish ill will on the character just for plot's sake. I think Digi sided with Road on this hurting-Lavi aspect.
I'm nooooooot... I just want D.Gray-Man to be darker! If Allen murdered everyone in the Order except Rinari and felt no remorse, I'd be even happier! =P
(On that note, two more reasons to hate Rabi:
*Spoiler for 120 on Mangahelpers. He proves me wrong AND acts terribly.
*Volume 4 DVD sold out of first press on CDJapan in ONE DAY. >_< Of course, it's Rabi's cover.)
