A different translation made him say something along the lines of Allen doing what he commands for the time being, so I think Levellier meant that he has something for Allen to do at the moment - presumably referring to the clothing change and the arm seal (for the Cross meeting).
Oh, point, seriously even though that guy's trying to joke he fails. His face is just THAT damned scary xD.
On the topic of exorcist growth, both Lavi and Kanda is kind of stale atm, don't you agree? Well Kanda yes, we've seen more about Lavi's background these past few chapters. Am curious on, in what way Lavi would inherit the Bookman name, will the old man die? or just plain retire? Also Kanda, we still need an explination about his chest tattoo and on how many charges do/does that tattoo got. (as in how many lives does he still have.)
...he was joking?!
It's not necessarily stale; Hoshino's been more involved with Lenalee and the Order recently. It's true that we still know relatively little about Kanda, although he hasn't exactly been important to the plot recently (or at all, for that matter XD). As for Lavi, I'm guessing he'd become a normal Bookman when Bookman thinks he's ready to (before the old man's death, I guess. I don't think he'd retire at that age and health). I think we'll hear a bit of vague information about Lavi soon, and then we'll find out about both of them when they get power-ups or whatever in true shounen style. Right now, though, it seems Hoshino wants to get to the actual plot... it looks as if there's a long way to go, and we're already 165 chapters in. It's pretty hard to see DGM being less than even thirty volumes at this rate, and unlike many series of that length, it'll need it.
Yeah during that "Little, heavy" part...
I guess Hoshino had enough silliness in the last six chapters, and wants to get serious again. Thirty volumes? Honestly I just want DGM to hit that 200 mark =p (without the participation of "scream" chapters if you know what i mean). Also about Cross dying, yeah i think that's a possible senario, since, IMO he's outlived his usefulness. The only thing that he needs to do is tell Allen all about mana and he's just some other character in the story.
^hey ppl Cross is keeeeeeeeeeeewl :P
I don´t think he´ll die this soon....and he´s perhaps a traitor (I don´t really think it´s true,but it´ll be some great WTF? moment) . But it´s possible,of course.
And if the thing with the fans would be only because of a few chapters,some mangas (*cough*Naruto*cough*) wouldn´t have any fans at all anymore... xDD
Cross is cool, but it isn't as if he has any backstory that won't be connected with the 14th (most likely). He's also a little overpowered for this series. It definitely isn't impossible for him to die like a typical shounen-series master and leave Allen to avenge him (I'm sure Allen will care... a bit).
I don't see why DGM wouldn't hit the 200-chapter mark considering we're almost there already. It hasn't been that unpopular, and it does have an ongoing story that doesn't drag (and can't be given a quick end!).
I think the length doesn´t matter,as long as it all plays out good....
The most important thing is that Hoshino doesn´t rush the end or something like that....And of course we´ll hit the 200 mark...only 35 chapters left and we got pretty much lots of things left that need to be uncovered.So *gogogogo* ^^
And how do ya think he´s gonna get beaten - he is *overpowered* .Perhaps he´ll sacrifice himself for Allen or he´s gonna fight a group of lvl 4 Akuma. OR the Order says his a traitor,kills him and then our heroes get out of there and fight the Earl on their own xD
The length does matter in that it's better for DGM to have a good pace - not to be too long and dragged out for the sake of making money, but not too rushed to avoid cancellation, either. I don't think that'll be a problem, though. Hoshino knows what she has to write, so...
Cross would probably sacrifice himself, yeah. Go down fighting a ridiculous amount of people. Alternatively, maybe someone will find his weakness and take him down, to Cross's great surprise; that'd be a nice ending if only to show that Cross really is human with weaknesses like everyone else.
(I can't delete posts in forums I don't mod, sorry. =P)
yeah,I agree with you ^^
and WHUT?? I was pretty sure u were a mod here , cuz u love DGM so much :P
oh well,it can stay like that or some other mod can delete my post xDD
edit: I looked it up lol, and the mods here really are kazechrno and Jyuu - two mods who I have never seen here rofl.Why don´t you become a mod here?You wouldn´t have that much to do anyway ^^
most assume that she is, but she's not.
Jyuu is there when needed and I think I've seen kazechrno around.
Meh, I doubt that we'll have the dramatic master student moment when Cross' death arrives, he'll, Cross, still force the cool card before his death.
Also most request her to be a mod here, but more or less this subforum moderate itself.
