this probably a lame question, but i since a hint of romance between lenalee and allen like in the chapter when she first sees allen after tyki attacked him by sumans corpse and they both shed a tear (in the anime at least)

but road seems to throw herself at allen and in the recent manga chapters allen isnt exactly throwing her off of him

Road :)

Lenalee is more like a sister. And surely, Nea and Road had "something" :)

Just two choices? I like both Lenalee and Road as characters, but in terms of possible future romance, I'd say that Lenalee is the only choice out of the two. Road is a villain who's stabbed Allen in the eye and tried to kill Allen's friends, and thinks nothing of human lives, plus she's trying to kill humankind. Even though she has a thing for Allen and doesn't want him dead, there's no way he would want to be in a couple with her unless she becomes a whole new person somehow.

It's hard to say whether DGM will become a series with a proper romance for Allen. It could easily end without one. But if any characters do get together, I'm sure Hoshino won't allow it to overshadow the plot.

You must mean chapter 203. In that point of the chapter, Allen is shocked and traumatised over the situation with the Apocyryphos and what just happened before Tyki and Road arrived. Tyki comments on that and thinks "The boy didn't even call out to me...! He's really shaken up." Pretty much anybody could have hugged him then. Allen had a lot more to be worried about than being hugged by someone who arrived to save him and was even trying to comfort him.


Lenalee is more like a sister.

I'm not sure about that. Lenalee's feelings are less clear, but Gray Ark's relationships chart lists Allen's feelings towards Lenalee as being "she's so cute...", and in the extra comic in the Character Book he does an awfully large amount of blushing in reaction to her. That doesn't seem a very brotherly action...Unless it's more an incestuous sibling type of relationship. (Speaking of which it's not unheard of for people to ship Komui/Lenalee.)

well more or less i was referring to when alma was being resurrected and road and allen were viewing kanda yu's memory and road was hanging all over allen and he actually seemed quite comfortable

i definitely see some romance between lenalee and allen

but in all fairness i watched the anime up to the end and then began reading the manga at 159 so i didnt read the manga for the larger portion of the story

i imagine the anime writers could have made the romance between allen and lenalee more of an issue than it truly was in the manga

Ah, right, so you probably mean chapter 193. That makes more sense than chapter 203.

The reason Road was hugging Allen at that time was to drag him back from getting lost in Kanda's memories, and he was naturally pretty out of it at the time. After that, Allen was busy watching the memories, and freaked out from seeing what was going on. But yeah, after that he didn't get Road to let go of him at the first opportunity. Probably helps that she's no longer attacking him at this point in the plot.

They didn't. Actually, I'd say the manga contains more Allen/Lenalee content than the anime does, because the scene from volume 3 of the manga where Lenalee smiles at Allen and says "Welcome home, Allen" and then Allen looks at Lenalee, blushes and thinks "She's so cute..." never happened in the anime, if I remember right. It's probably because they shoehorned in an anime filler story and cut out some of the original story to make it happen.

To me, Lenalee. I believe that a lot of best friends can become couples, and they are so cute together... Hoshino has confirmed Allen's love for Lenalee, but he only kissed road xD Well, for real, I think that he'll end alone in this aspect. :/

February 21, 2012, 01:03 PM
Neither, I really don't think this series cators much for romance and i'm kinda okay with that. Hoshino introducing the romance aspect now would feel too contrived and forced. And lastly as it relates to Road I really don't think her love is directed to Allen persay but more specifically to what lies within which is Nea. I really like seeing Allen and Lenalee togethor but not as a couple. I think they have a different type of chemistry togethor that is mostly seen when they team up in battle, because quite frankly they make the most badass tagteam i've personally seen to this very day. Even if there are lingerring feelings of love between the two I really don't think these feelings will be fulfilled.

THANK YOU!!! i will have to go back and read that now, i figured something like this happened along the way

what about the episode of the anime where lenalee went shopping to get a present for her brother and allen was staring at her and lavi comes over and says something about allen staring at her??? i always assumed that was a filler episode due to the lack of meaningful content, but could it be that something like that was also in the manga?

Road!! Definitely Road!
I think Allen has more of a big sister admiration towards Lenalee.
And to be honest, Lenalee suits Lavi more + The anime had quite alot of Lavi x Lenalee moments.

i must say when road kissed allen there was a healthy saliva trail between their lips, and lenalee did seem AWFULLY jealous

personally i would be happy either way, as road is a very lovable villian, sure she can be very dirty and vicious

but she has a very likable personality

No, your first guess was right, that was a complete filler episode. I don't remember that scene, but it probably is there.

:D

I guess it would be hard proof that even though Noahs as a group and individually consider each other siblings, they could still be in a romance. Which if you think about it we already knew, since the original Noahs repopulated the Earth together. And Road definitely seems to want a romance with Allen while knowing that he's got a Noah memory....And maybe Sherril wants one with Road, in a way. Man got very jealous about the suggestion Road has a history with Nea.

Other than that, unless the theories about Allen being a de-aged and amnesiac Nea are true, which they might be, Nea's not the same person as Allen even if they are are in the same body, and so the viability or not of Nea/Road doesn't affect that of Road/Allen. Although...no, it probably does, because if Nea/Road turns out to be canon, it's increases the chances that Road's feelings for Allen are actually her feelings for Nea.


i must say when road kissed allen there was a healthy saliva trail between their lips, and lenalee did seem AWFULLY jealous

That must be a difference between the anime and manga. In the manga there isn't any saliva trail - not that a saliva trail means anything in particular - and Lenalee didn't act jealous. (Actually, her reaction at the time in the manga isn't shown.)

But! In Gray Ark, there's a section on mission reports. Lenalee writes the part of the report taking place in that room, and she does comment on the kiss.


Allen entered the tower, and is greeted by Road’s kiss! What went on between the two of them since the incident in Rewinding Town?

Is that jealous or not? I tend to think it is, but it could be interpreted either way. It's quite a change in behaviour from the last time Road met Allen, so a person would wonder if anything happened between those times, though we as readers know nothing did.

I vastly prefer Allen with Road over Allen with Lenalee. I think both pairings have great dynamics and solid ground, but it's my personal preference. Besides, Road has a kiss with Allen holding over Lenalee's head. :p Say what you want. Hahaha.

Love the forbidden air Allen and Road have always had between them. And let's face it. The two had one hell of a first meeting.

I think he means in one of those "Ask the characters" thingy xD?
If I remember it right, there was a question if Lavi liked a girl/Lenalee and Lavi said something like yes.
Allen was quite flustered/troubled by that... But! That could also mean that he was worried for Lavi, since Komui is overprotective xD

That's not confirming anything... Until she comes right out and says it then she didn't. Hints yes, but the truth? no. =S

I think its interesting that both Road and Lenalee are so similar to each other, and yet have had such little interaction with one another. Personally I feel Hoshino-sensei is using Allen's relationship with Lenalee and Road to show his struggle against his inner Noah, as well as play up the "forbidden love" angle.

Nothing is black and white in D.Gray-man. It makes sense that romance wouldn't be so black and white either. There are always hints, but nothing really gets confirmed until the very end. But that's what I like about D.Gray-man, it doesn't have any blatant unrequited love tropes like other series do. Even Roufa's admiration/crush on Allen is played for comedy.

For the topic itself, I would rather see Allen with Lenalee, because I like their dynamics. They are good friends. I like Allen and Road too, and I understand they have Batman/Catwoman written all over them, but to me it would only work if Road flat-out betrays the Noah family. I don't think Allen would settle for anything else, quite frankly.

July 27, 2012, 09:10 PM
I personally think none, because Lenalee is more of a friend or close friend to be exact, and Road seem like an older sister.

Road is indeed a lot older than Allen.
There was a part where Road wishes the 14th to come back, but it doesn't mean Allen.


Lenalee does blush a few time, but its not love.
She cares about him, because he has similar pain and they're pretty much close.

Aaa, this subject. Well, I'm on the side of "I can't see any serious romance happening in this series."

I like both pairings a lot but I just can't see Allen getting with anyone canon wise.

In another universe, yes. I can easily see Allen/Lenalee or Allen/Road happening, but not in this one.,
I think if Allen gets into a relationship at this point, which I doubt seeing the recent chapters, it will feel forced.

Also, I don't think Road feels anything 'that way' when it comes to Neah. The Noah are family. They could've been close, of course. In the chara book, Road says that she thinks of Neah as a traitor. So her feelings for Allen could be for Allen.

Well, my favorite character of the manga is Road, so of course I would like to see Allen and Road ending up together.

But, in all honesty, I don't think this is going to happen.
I think that either there's not gonna be any romance in the manga, or he's going to end up with Lenalee (or worst, Allen's going to die at the end!).

The most I can hope is for more hugs from Road, and maybe a few kisses as well! :hee

Like above, Allen x Road FTW.... but I don't think Allen will get involved romantically with anyone.

In that case though, I at least want to see a flashback of Road and Nea being together (or Mana, or... uh, however you understood the last chapter, lol)... And Road's attachment showing whenever she meets Allen, through hugs and whatnot, will please me.

But yeah, no canon romance for Allen, IMO.

I don't like Allen/Lenalee at all but I can easily say it's more likely than Allen/Road. I like Allen/Road better but that is a fantasy pairing right there. Heck, out of the girls my favourite pairing for Allen is Rohfa. Fat chance of that one happening.

Lavi shows way more feeling toward Lenalee (if you look throughout manga canon and at all the extras all three of the male leads find her "cute" actually) though. In the character book CharaGray, Lenalee's words to Allen it's true he sees her as "important person" which strongly implies he has feelings for her, but her words for him are "don't overdo it" and her words for Lavi are along the lines of "you were very worried about me, thank you." Also, I wish I could give you the source for where I got this from but I saw a thing done by Hoshino which could be from the manga or could have been an extra where Allen was all "I have to protect you because I'm the guy" and Lenalee's all "Yeah but I'm older than you." Things aren't so clear-cut on her side (Lenalee herself was the one who brought up when Lavi teased Allen that Lavi also cried when he was reunited with her after bringing her back to the boat). Also, Allen was being welcomed HOME by her after being away so long and nearly dying and worrying that he might not be able to go on as an Exorcist. A lot was going on for Allen emotionally in that scene (though I do think he's attracted to her at least a little in canon).

As there's so much up in the air, even with what hints there are, I wouldn't take Allen/Lena too too much for granted. Honestly I think that Lavi having (probably unrequited) feelings for her is more likely to play an actual role in the story than Allen having possibly requited feelings. I think Allen isn't likely to end up with anybody because... he's kind of doomed, and his story is more about him and Mana than it is about getting him a girlfriend. Why make it worse by giving his desired romantic partner more to cry over?

I don't see either as good.

Road's feelings are questionable on whether they're even genuine. Does she like Allen for himself. Or is just just a replacement, or sub for Neah or Mana? He had a relationship with one of the 2. If it's Mana, then she just likes the "Mask of Mana" he wears. And that's not him, and he's even started to show it.

If she was with Neah, then it's Allen being a substitute until Neah awakens.

And with neah being inside of him, he's a Noah like her. Afterall the Noah only care about other Noah. Unless Road is s supporter of this hidden 3rd side.


Allen and Lenalee I used to like. But, Lenalee is just to whiny, and emotionally weak. Len I like better as a friend, or sister. They trust and confide in one another. But, not romantic.

I don't think romance will come up in the manga, and I really wouldn't like Allen with len or Ro.

If I had to pick a girl for Allen, then I like Roufa,

Fou is a big maybe. But Roufa is first.

She seems stable, which Allen could use some of. At least, more stable than Len. Allen likes to eat, and Roufa likes to cook for him, and apparently is a great cook. But putting aside material things, I think if they really had a chance to get to know one another, Allen could really like Roufa.

Maybe Len with Lavi. Heck, seems like whenever Lenalee goes through something, Lavi is the one with her to see & hear it. He was there when Summan died. He was there to hear how Lenalee really feels about the Order, and God. He was their when she lost her powers. Road uses Len to torture Lavi. They just seem like a good match.

But, manga wise, Allen/Lenalee is possible in the sense they both do have feelings for one another. So I can't argue that. I just don't like the pairing.

But, unless Allen can shake Neah, or separate from him, he won't get anyone, and if he does, it'll be short-lived.

My interpretation of Road's feelings for Allen has for a long time been platonic. To me, it seems a lot more reminiscent of the sort of familial love she show to Tyki and the Earl. The kissing him and hanging on to him as seen on the ark seems more playful really than anything else. There wasn't any, for lack of a better word, desire hidden underneath it. Then, when under attack from Apocryphos, we get see true emotion and caring from Road towards Allen as well as a fierce protectiveness. Looking at Chapter 218 and seeing some sort of implied relationship between Road and Mana as well as taking into account that Mana might very well be the Millennium Earl, I believe that what first got Road interested in Allen was that he reminded her of Mana (or perhaps the kind of person that the Earl used to be). When they first meet, she treats him as she would any other human, cruelly toying with him. But when she sees evidence of his stalwart idealism and martyr-like devotion to protecting both humans and akuma, it takes her aback somewhat and causes her to see Allen differently. I think that this could be because she saw Mana/the Earl's old self in him and that that was what triggered her weird affection for him.

As for Allen and Lenalee, well...the kind of things they've been through together forms bond not easily broken. Under different circumstances, I think that their relationship definitely has the potential to shift to one of a romantic nature. They're well matched and have moments of chemistry. However, they could just as easily decide that they are better off friends. In any case, it's been stated that, at the current moment, they're both too busy in the war to entertain thoughts of romance. In the endgame...maybe. Maybe not. Something else to consider is that it's pretty heavily implied that Lavi has an unrequited crush on Lenalee. Maybe she could return his feelings someday.

Hmmmm.... If the manga does end up with a romantic ending, I'd be fine with it as long as Allen's satisfied really and that the chemistry between the pair be there, not something forced or made up. In consideration of that desire, I'd really be fine with Roufa, Fou, Road or Lenalee really. If only given the 2 choices I'd probably go with Lenalee only because I personally feel that sometimes the manga seems to highlight a pretty nice chemistry between Lenalee and Allen in small instances (Simple instances like when Allen ran away from the order and officially ceased to be an exorcist of the Black Order). Road DID kiss Allen but her affection for Allen is rather intricate and not something I understand very well yet so I wouldn't be too sure.

Cross even mentioned that Allen becoming the 14th meant he had to kill someone that he loved, so who knows maybe it could be somebody actually loved specifically or perhaps just as a friend, I dunno. If its somebody he loves specifically than the manga may be aspiring to use a little bit of romance into it, but I doubt it'll be significant till the near end of the series. Right now it seems more to center around the melanchony of Allen's life and less on romance but who knows :notsure
