Wow chapter 15 was really good. Finally it looks like we have a very interesting new rival/case coming up.
I keep forgetting how new this series is lol but I was reminded when I saw the cover of volume 1 on the first page of this week's chapter. And I must say it looks very cool.
Read up to ch14. I know it is still too early to tell, but ch 14 without no other allies introduced. I am beginning to feel lonely. It can get repetitive, since so far he only solved case by case basis. And all the antagonist so far defeated so easily (well of course after he got the dark matter). I can not compare to SAO, since i never manage to read more then 1 vol(right after he save the girlfriend and it start to get boring to me >.< i know i need to read it again, since i like seinen genre). But still we are talking about 1 shonen and 1 seinen, it will not work out when you comparing the two.
And although it is not the same, i can't help but this series remind me a lot of Neuro (the eating stuff)
i really like this series. the art is great and the story has a lot of potential. That the story isn't that deep yet is just natural after only 17 chapter so far...
I'm more concerned if the manga stays as it is, gets more into mysterie oder more into battle...
Read up to ch 20 raw just now.
Looks like this manga is turning to battle manga direction, or at least according the the arc that just introduced. Hey... whatever it is i am glad that this is going somewhere - hopefully. (not case by case basis)
Looks like Idamaria will be a powerfull ally for Kucabara.
Does anyone has any idea about the release date of the first volume of this manga?
Defense Devil is an interesting manga/manhwa with a great art. It's quite schematic but good.
The new character, Idamaria, is cute and has nice looking powers BUT!
During her introduction in chapter 15 there was a terrible lie. Exorcisms are not forbidden for Catholics! I mean, baptism is in some way an exorcism. A simple exorcism can be done by everybody (prayer) but a well-known practice is done by bishops and priests. So yeah, nuns can't do that but saying that about Catholics is a lie.
The Iscariot Organization in Hellsing was made up and there were many things which didn't seem right but it was a fiction and I completely understand that, but this mistake in Defense Devil can only be called as a lack of knowledge.
Don't get me wrong, my feelings weren't hurt, I'm not a Catholic (I was, but that's not the place to talk about this) but lie is a lie.

It's a fictional story that does not claim to state real facts
Otherwise there would be hell(s), event horizon, magical cards, dark matter and so on.
My point is, when they talk about "the Catholic church" it's not the one in 'our reality' but something fictual on it's own that is loosly based on said reality.
It is for example like you said the case, that exorcism is still in practise (there are even female exorcists btw.) but they now have to differ between mental problems and posession after the church tightend the rules.
That said, Idamaria isn't a typical exorcist anyway. She's not treating posessed people but calling demons to earth directly <.<;
The last two chapters kinda feel like a heavy rupture in pace. I hope it's not rushing towards its end, but it looks like it... Displaying many cases without detail, giving backgroundinformation through an almost omniscient character (Bichula)... do you think they could do it in six chapters and stop once the third tank is full?
Don't get me wrong, I don't want it to end either, but that's the impression I got...
Unfortunately I got similira impressions like aka. I realy hope, that after the flashback- and demonworld-arc Kucabara and Bichula return to their cases.
Naturaly they need disputants too. I also be afraid of: who would be this disputants of Kuca, if he even settles the affair in the demon world?...... Q_Q
After all it seems, that the current flashback includes a mini-mini-case (the thing with the doll...) *hopeful*
no chapter this week or late raws?

Yeah. I wish the flashback can be shorten, quickly went into main point.
But, it looks like it going to take few more chp to finish it. 0.0
Can't wait what he gonna do as he head back to demon world.
