    Why would any of general die now? What benefits do it bringt oHoshino? To show how 4lvl are strong? That would make zero sense, as that would mean that they are stronger then Noah.

    I thought one could die if Hoshino was planning to give Lenalee some power-ups later in the manga (she is pretty important, after all); if that isn't the case, then we don't really need another General to die.

    About the level 4 power - well, there's almost no chance that Allen isn't going to get his butt kicked next chapter, and Noah can certainly toss him around fairly well. Noahs probably have strength roughly equal to that of Generals (basically - and otherwise, why only 13 Noah while there can be up to 109 Exorcists?), and I don't see why something weaker could defeat a General if they had advantages: surprise, ability to explot weaknesses... Lenalee nearly got killed by a level 3, after all.

    And in all reality, Digi, she should of. Even she admidts it. However, that goes to prove your point even more so. The lvl. 3 akuma she fought thought that she played all her cards, therfore she wasn't a threat. The Anchor (100% synch rante attack) caught that Akuma with it's pants down (figuritivle of course). Even then she almost died (and would of if someone didn't come and save her) as she killed it. Everyone knows that in cards, one ace held back can be the diffrence in winning and losing, same in battles.

    In this case yes, we can expect on of them dead someday. To many strong guys on "good" side in no good for plot, as it makes "villains" look too weak.

    If the surroundings or current situation supported 4lvl I would have agreed with you. But right now none of them is wounded or cought by surprise, so in this battle Generals won't have problems.

    Although theoretically you are right - if Akuma has a trump card and exploits it well, it will have a chance to win.

    The suicidal attack is not the best thing to do and should have been avaoided at any cost; if Linalee used it it means that she had no other choice, meaning that all trup cards of that 3lvl akuma made her cornered and unable to survive - so Linalee decided to take her opponent down even if it means her own death. Am I wrong?

    No, you're right.

    Cool thing about this chapter is that I was bang on But I can't believe Johnny is still alive! He must be immortal. That's all there is to it. And if he's STILL alive, then Reever and Bak probably are, too.

    That was alot of effort to evolve into Lv4 - but it did look cool The final product is kinda fucked up looking though... and I guess it's gonna have some pretty funky moves which I for one am looking forward to seeing!

    ^ Johny must have seven lifes like some cat. If he survives the next battle with that 4lvl Akuma as well, we'll creat a Worshiping Thread for him, as noone can escape death so many times and not be some kind of god.

    I agee, the process of evolving was well-drawn. I sure it has some cool moves, although even if it does it will have hard time surviving this battle.

    Lenalee didn't die because of power, though, but because she couldn't fight that akuma. It basically made her unable to attack except for those rare moments when its power wasn't affecting her. Had she fought a level 3 with a different power - say, the Thread one that Allen faced... well, that's a bit off-topic, but anyway. It isn't too much to expect that a level 4 of unknown power/abilities could do some damage to the Exorcists (including Generals) before it is defeated.

    Allen will get knocked around in the next chapter because he's Allen and he's everyone's punching bag. :3

    I second the Johnny-worshipping thread. I seriously can't believe he isn't even unconscious yet.

    So the next chapter will most likely be the fighting one again, and after that we may expect some real plot development.

    I wonder what do generals think about Allen now that they saw him fighting.

    OK, so if he doesn't die next week to I'm building a Chapel for him.

    EDIT: I noticed something rather strange - a lot of people (sometimes almost 10) are viewing DGM subforum (and they are obviously different people at teh different time of the day) but almost nobody of them post. I wonder if it really is that interesting to read what we are posting instead of taking part of discussions themselves?

    Cross seems impressed by Allen, but none of the others have said anything about it. I wonder if they'll have a meeting after the battle, or if Cross will drag Cloud off for another glass of wine and they'll have a discussion? Having an Exorcist with equal abilities to your elite group can't be ignored...

    (I do the same thing on other forums, so yeah, probably just watching. Oh man, I must seem so conceited to them...)

    Of course it can't be ignored, and I'm sure they will discuss this matter later. Sokaro may not care at all though.

    Conceited? Why?
