It looks like the battle could end in the next chapter with the egg being recaptured or destroyed now that those are really the only two options (unless Hoshino leaves us with a cliffhanger after spending 15 pages with talk and things like that). I'm really interested in seeing how it ends, though. Lulu Bell was interested in bringing Allen back to the Earl; will she succeed in doing that or will Allen get left behind (which seems a little boring to me, since nothing special about him was really revealed here).Yeah, I'm with you here, it should end as fast as possible - no need to prolong it, it's not Bleach. We have already seen everything what we needed, just showing any more pointless akuma-killing by obviously overwhelming generals' strength won't help plot to progress in any way.
For now ending seems pretty clear. Eggs capturing failed (?). What interests me more is what will inspector do to Allen after the battle ends.
I do want to see what Link's mission is, though. That might prolong the battle by taking up a chapter in the middle, but if it means something like Lenalee fighting...
Maybe he's going to tell Allen to leave the Order or the Inspector that Allen is absolutely innocent... something that would show that he trusts Allen. At first, it seemed like helping Allen access the Ark/Egg area were a sign of that, but apparently it was what the Inspector wanted all along. It'd probably just be some kind of information like that which we don't really care about but will affect the other characters.Thats right, he doesn't need to be special if he is there just to reveal info. But he doesn't seem to have anything important to uncover at all, does he?
I meant with the rankings and all - their only attack squad is really the Exorcists. Aside from that, they really are an army. But the Inspector implied that Link would need to be in good form for that job... so what would he be doing? Spying?Order = Military in every possible way. And for military member to be in a good form is a given (no?).
