    Default Chapter 152 Discussion - Uh, Lenalee, maybe you shouldn't be drinking that...

    Raw is out.

    Awww, masked-and-controlled Allen is so cutely badass. ^_^ Oh, and little Lenalee is super adorable too. Lots of flashbacks here. Damn, Komui really is incredibly awesome...

    yeah it was an awesome chapter, can't wait for the translation so i can understand it all. I wonder who is controlling Allens body or maybe he's doing it because he can't move on his own? Well anyway it was a nice comeback from Allen and finally Lenalee will get her power up and hopefully nothing goes wrong after that.

    Allen was using those ribbon things (Clown Belt?) to control his body because he can't move on his own. I think that's a big clue that Allen isn't going to be kicking butt in this arc anymore.

    Another thing that people won't notice in this chapter until the translation comes out is the numerous exchanges of "Okaeri"/"Tadaima" ("Welcome back"/"I'm back") between Lenalee and Komui in her flashbacks. I'm starting to wonder if this concept of returning to one's "family" is becoming a theme for DGM; we've seen it in two other scenes before this (Reever/Lenalee with Allen in chapter 18, and Lenalee/Allen in chapter 89; when Reever said it, Allen was reminded of Mana, who apparently said that too. As for the exchange between Allen and Lenalee... that probably means something else ^_~) and the second, at least, was a fairly emotional and important moment in the story. Lenalee also said she'd be leaving Komui, though (well, not quite like that, but - well, wait for the translation), so... maybe she can't really be an Exorcist with Komui still being so important.

    Awww, I liked this chapter... Little Lenalee looked kinda weird at the beginning, though. Also, Komui looks kinda different without his glasses.

    i don't think it's allen using the clown belt to control his body, but his innocence moving in to protect lenalee(who is almost certainly the heart). We've seen that allen's innocence also has a mind of it's own, so it's more possible than allen using his innocence to move his body. Plus in the past allen has fought together with his innocence, but separated, with his cloak/mask thing moving on it's own, while allen also moves on his own.

    But if Allen's Innocence was acting entirely on its own, why were there Clown Belt ribbons around Allen's legs? Perhaps it's just a combination of the two.

    (Oh, about the above "return" thing - I forgot about the Ark arc. Both Allen and Lenalee's goal in the Ark was to return home with everyone, hence why there was a scene of the HQ members saying "welcome back" at the end. Aww.)

    This chapter did make me realize that the possibility for the series ending with romance is pretty low, though. Either Komui will die (which would be really tragic and I'm not sure Hoshino is planning to take that path anymore) or Allen stays with Lenalee and Komui (meaning that Lenalee isn't being taken away so everyone's happy) in order for romance to occur, but it seems much more likely to me at this point that Lenalee will just go back to China with Komui in the end. Maybe Allen will die, or maybe we'll just see a sad scene of Lenalee telling Allen that she's going home and Allen goes off to become a travelling clown again...

    About the belts around Allen's legs: prior to this Allen's Innocence could only move his arm, the rest of Allen's body would just be drug around after it. So the belts around Allen's legs are the Innocence trying to controle all of Allen's body, and therefore be a more dangerous threat to the Akuma. I wouldn't want to be in a fight against something that only seems to need a heartbeat of the host to continue fighting, expecially if my poison attack atributes are compleatly null and void.

    So, Lenalee's wish is to protect everyone, so long as the akuma might be a threat. Lends to a strong possibility of some form of healing (a trait the innocence still hasn't shown) or a high speed (based on prior form) and defensive ability... could get really interesting.

    Ahhh, that makes sense. I guess I assumed that since Allen's Innocence isn't only in his left arm now (otherwise, how could he use Clown Belt?), it could move other parts... but when you put it that way, things make perfect sense. I guess I should have expected it since Allen never spoke when he obviously had the energy to do that before.

    So, Lenalee's wish is to protect everyone, so long as the akuma might be a threat. Lends to a strong possibility of some form of healing (a trait the innocence still hasn't shown) or a high speed (based on prior form) and defensive ability... could get really interesting.
    Healing is possible, although she's going to need a strong offense (probably related to her original ability) to beat the level 4... since there's no way Allen is going to be able to do it. If she is the Heart, maybe her abilities will relate to regenerating Accomodators and their Innocence rather than general healing, though?

    Good point on the healing aspect. I couldn't think of anything that would fit. As far as the strong offence thing, as you pointed out before, she had her super sonic jumps/kicks. If it ends up that the lvl 4 just needs to be hit, that would more then likely be enough for her to win. However seeing the damage it can produce, I'ld bet that there would be some additional defensive abilities (and perhaps more speed) added in. Also the healing might be self-regen of some sort.

    Also Digi about him using the Clown Belt, it is still part of the Clown Crown, and one peice of innocence. If you compair it to Lenalee's Dark Boots, it would be like saying she could only use one of them at a time. It just made sence that they were linked to the same will to me.

    I'm sure the level 4 isn't as defenceless as, say, Lenalee herself (before whatever power-up this is, anyway), but it's not Eshi. Lenalee might not need additional power at all. Then again, if the level 4 can have power and speed, there's no reason to assume Lenalee can't, either. And I'm so tired of hearing people say that she shouldn't be able to beat the level 4 because "she's not powerful enough'. ...I didn't make sense there, did I.

    Self-regeneration is quite possible if it's a parasitic-type. At this point, she doesn't seem to need it, though.

    Also Digi about him using the Clown Belt, it is still part of the Clown Crown, and one peice of innocence. If you compair it to Lenalee's Dark Boots, it would be like saying she could only use one of them at a time. It just made sence that they were linked to the same will to me.
    I know... I meant that I either thought it moved everything (+non-Innocence parts) or it wasn't working at all. About the boots, though... I wonder, could an Accomodator only activate part of his/her Innocence if s/he wanted to? Like Allen using his sword but not activating the cape (purposefully) or something?

    lol. Allen being too weak to actually do anything means we get a shit load of deus ex machinas.

    Lenalee's coming power up isn't a deus ex machina per se but we are going to get a whole bunch of "holy hell didn't know she'd be that strong faces"
