    I forgot about that, she hasn't been a main focus of the story for quite some time. I wanna see Allen fly, damn it.

    I don't think Lenalee showing up would be lame at all considering that someone has to take out that akuma, and she needs a power-up anyway.
    If she were to fight this thing, with her Innocence given back to her, your theory on her awakening may very well come true.

    Awakening... why did I think of Claymore when I read that. :3 I don't want Allen to fly. He jumps high enough anyway. Besides, it makes Lenalee special!

    Anyway, I'm not denying that the level 4 is strong, but I doubt it's as strong as it seems at the moment. Remember, the first level 3 we saw gave readers the impression that they were crazy strong and it would take an Exorcist sacrifice to defeat it, but that wasn't the case at all (Lenalee = disadvantaged), since Allen, among others, took them out fairly easily. I think it's the same with this akuma. It has to appear strong in the first appearance of its level, but in the end, it won't be more powerful than Generals or Noah, or possibly even average Exorcists (depending on the weapon, though).

    Depends on the circumstances, let's not forget that she's locked in a hospital room right now or so we think, whilst everything else(including the entrace of the portal, exit being in the lab) is located pretty far from that place. But honestly, what irks me the most of the possible power-up is the fact that Allen's Noah element would get ignored at such a good moment to unveil it and/or a sudden jump in level after being stuck at 10% synchro's just a bit plot powered in my opinion. Even Allen's innocence never went down to 10% when he lost it, or that we know anyway, it just got turned to dust.

    I thought that a good time to reveal Allen's Noahness would have been after he hit the wall and collapsed, but that obviously didn't happen. Since the akuma seems to be heading to the main part of the lab, I think it would be an excellent time to give Lenalee her Innocence back. She hasn't been able to fight since volume 8. Besides, a "power-up" would probably just mean that her Innocence takes a new form with its new type; it shouldn't really be stronger considering that Exorcists aren't really ranked on a scale of strength (mostly just attacks and what works where and how). Allen going over 100% didn't technically make him way more powerful than he was prior to that; his sword allows him to use his power in different ways, and that cloak is damn awesome, but his attacks don't seem any more powerful than when he received Crowned Clown. As for the 10% invocation, I think that just means that it's riskier for Lenalee to invocate (ie: she could die). I don't think it means that she's actually weaker in any way besides inexperience.

    On the subject of the Noah... in Boric's flashback, it seemed that the birth of a Noah was gradual, not sudden. Allen suddenly showing off Noah powers now wouldn't fit with that at all. What would make sense is for him to start becoming one after the battle - probably get those cross-marks on his head or something. It isn't violent or sudden at all. An Innocence invocation would be... so Lenalee gets to fight now, and Allen gets his Noah abilities soon after. It fits perfectly within the story and there's no need for another fight arc right after.

    Well I think allen won't get the marks >.> I mean he's really not a Noah right? Just some human who received Noah powers. I guess there won't be any physical manifestations of him being a Noah, just him being able to use his powers would be enough.

    Also on the Lenalee thing, hey I think that "Synch-ing with your Innocence is dangerous now" is kind of expected/important. I mean I guess the Innocence itself is an upgrade. I guess equipment types are weaker in respect on how much they could use their Innocence compaired to parasitic types.

    (also I think I just made no sense in the paragraphs above >.<)

    I was going to post this if no one said anything today, which I'm glad turned out wrong, but I'll propose this question anyway: If her Dark Boots become parasitic, and they turn out to be like Allen's arm, what do you think they'll look and act like from now on?

    Will this result in Allen-like levels of physical strength? Will her legs visibly change forever? Will she be able to out eat Allen? (you have no idea how hard it was to keep the words of that sentence in that order.)

    We don't know what's going to happen to Allen for sure. Noahness seems to be in genes, and the silhouettes we've seen of the 14th look very much like Allen himself. Besides, he'd probably need to actually be a Noah to use Noah attacks (rather than just play the piano).

    Also on the Lenalee thing, hey I think that "Synch-ing with your Innocence is dangerous now" is kind of expected/important. I mean I guess the Innocence itself is an upgrade. I guess equipment types are weaker in respect on how much they could use their Innocence compaired to parasitic types.
    It might just be an upgrade because she can use it now and couldn't before, or maybe she'll have a slightly different form/attacks. From what I remember reading, I don't think there are any actual advantages/disadvantages to either weapon (well, strong parasites sap the host's life, but...); parasitic-types are rarer, so maybe they're assumed to be more powerful? So far, the ones we've seen (Suman, Allen, Krory, Cloud) don't seem to be any more powerful than equipment-types.

    Also, I just realized something this chapter: Link is actually kinda cute. o_o In a weird way. Dots and all.

    I think the para types could supposedly harness the pure raw power of the innocence while the equip types can't. It was mentioned during Allen's no-left handed-ness chapters.

    Link, cute >.> no comment.

    Yeah, because with the parasitic-types, the living host itself is the weapon (as opposed to the host using the Innocence-weapon). There's still no evidence to show that parasitic-types are stronger, though.

    I suppose it was to be expected at some point. He's not one of the incredibly ugly old men, and since Hoshino draws this...

    Being Noah = having Noah powers. So if he have powers he shall receive marks. Same for innocence.

    I think that a rushed power up for Linalee will be lame - like how she was damsel in distress a minute ago and now she is a super-powerful monster. It's better to make it gradual. No need to rush.
