Actually, Allen's had it for a few months by now, considering how long Lenalee's hair has grown. Yes, he only used it against two Noah, and there may have been other reasons behind its failure to injure Road, but that's still a fairly unimpressive record. After all, there are only four (five?) living Noah that we've seen right now. Anyway, it *is* pretty epic as a weapon, and he does use it to kick ass - it's not worthless by any means. It just might not do the job it should have done.
(Nonono, it's fine, I READ the spoiler so I meant that I had an idea of what was going on.)
Well,the thing with the Innocence destroying the Noah is not bad,but has everybody forgotten the "heart" (or whatever it´s title was xDD)?
perhaps it´s really Allen (or Lenalee) and that helps Allen destroy (or another possibility: he can become one) with 14th.Who knows?But I sure don´t want a Bleach Scenario (if you know what I mean) - Cuz there is a lot of ways Hoshino could do this (and it would be original too,more or less :D)
Actually, there's a good reason why it didn't affect Road, as said by herself. I remember her saying her actual 'body' was inside her dimension and thus the only real way to actually harm her was through that. Hence why Lavi was able to burn her when he attacked both Roads at once. As for Tykki, well, who knows. Also, that makes me wonder, given the whole thing on the 'true purpose of Akuma' and why the Earl hasn't destroyed the exorcists, why would the 14th destroy them unless they were aiding the Earl somehow? Since all he seems to want is the Earl dead, really really badly. I think we've been getting plenty of foreshadowing for a big reveal soon, or maybe that's just hopeful thinking.
I mentioned that there were other reasons for why it didn't work on Road, but Hoshino's still shown that Allen has tried and failed twice... and I think that matters for something. Hmm - there's a lot of speculation that Lenalee is that 'important person' (thanks again to how foreshadowing works in stories), and it could be that she has the Heart, too... wow, if Lenalee/Heart end up saving Allen, that might actually be pretty cool as it could shed more light on WTF was up with those dreams they were having.
I wonder if the Exorcists really are helping the Earl without being aware of it; I mentioned that a few chapters back, and it still could work. We know Cross had connections to the 14th for a while, and he's still shown no sign of definite support for the Order (but if he does - Cross might not have been 100% loyal, as implied by some of his statements). That'd be even more interesting. :3 The 14th, going against everything... for what reason? Sacrificing one person for the sake of the greater good, which would be zomg awesome?
yea i was thinking of Lenalee being the Heart too because the Earl mentionned both her and Allen. We already know why he thinks Allen is a threat, that's because of his conneciton with the 14th and Mana. and why would he concerned with Lenalee? maybe because she has something do to with the Heart.

Remember one reason is because they also wanted to know how to control the Arc(that's how organizations are). If there's one person i dont trust, It's that hitler looking guy who seemed to put his work over all else. As for Lenalee's brother, i dont trust him either because his reason for joining is Lenalee so if they squeeze him, he'd go against Allen(cant blame him for that). Although that might not happen, I wouldn't be surprise if Allen decides to leave.
i still can't forgive the mangaka over the Eureka-like transformation he gave to Lenalee.
Lenalee is suspected by both sides of potentially having the Heart, but there was speculation that Allen might have it, too. For all we know, Lenalee's Innocence could have been behaving oddly because of that crystal-type evolution (lame!). On the other hand, who knows. It'd certainly be a good way for Lenalee to save Allen and inject some romance into the story.
Cross didn't really question Allen... he was allowed by Levellier to tell Allen about what was going on (Cross asked at the end of the level 4 fight in return for telling Levellier that information beforehand). There's no question that Allen on his own is not a threat, not after all the pro-Order behaviour he's shown since the secret was first revealed, and likewise, the 14th very well could be a threat - but there's no indication of when it will act, and Allen didn't even know about the 14th until... er... the Ark?
Komui wouldn't betray Allen, not without feeling completely miserable about it for a long time. The Order would have to threaten Lenalee to get him to do anything, and technically, he'd be going against orders if they even had to resort to that. Of course, we know Lenalee will support Allen in pretty much anything he does, and Komui seems to like him too, so I don't think we'll have to worry about Komui himself doing anything 'bad'. If Allen leaves, Lenalee will probably follow, and if that happened, Komui might be one of just a few people (Johnny and quite probably Bak and Lavi) who would still defend them and try to keep them safe somehow.
(What did Hoshino do...? Personally, I preferred the short hair, but... *shrugs* Wasn't that her original design for Lenalee, considering what was in the fanbook - the super short hair, I mean? Bah, who knows. Next thing you know, she'll get bored of drawing Lenalee's hair this way in another eight volumes and change it again.)
why do I felt that allen looked like an adult in this chapter?
Is he already over 20s?
& wow, lenalee x johnny sleeping head to head... (urging me to post at the couple thread)
sigh~ there's not enough female characters to do the coupling stuff...
Probably Hoshino's art style; she's not exactly consistent with it. As far as we know, Allen is still 15 (although he should be 16 by now...). He looked his age in the previous two chapters, so it's probably just that.
Ewww, Johnny... Nah, it's pretty clear those two aren't a couple. Johnny's totally going after Allen, remember? He's like a gay friend to Lenalee, you know, the one that's like a girl but just isn't?
Sunday night and no new raw in sight makes me sad....
There's no DGM chapter this week. It wasn't mentioned in the chapter, but... yeah, there isn't one. (And we only have two more chapters of DGM AFTER this week before a double issue of Jump.)
