    Re: Ao no Exorcist by Katou Kazue

    huh. i never really thought about the blade being cracked but that seems interesting. what if the sword was cracked? would rin start to loose it, or would he be okay for the moment? i'd like to see everyone's reaction to the cracking of the sword.
    as for rin, what would happen to him? like, would half of his flames be released or all? plus, who is powerful enough to crack his sword anyways? i'd suspect one of the kings would be powerful enough, but satan's powerful enough too.

    and if mephisto is duping the demons, who's to say he's not duping the order too? i wonder what exactly mephisto's plan really is, and how rin is involved :/

The "Karura-ou" in Japanese Buddhism is simply a reorganization of various mythical beings done by various monks when translating the scriptures into Japanese. You can't even say Karura is based on Garuda because when comparing Buddhist sects that do and don't use the same categorization (8 guardians vs 28 guardians), they are referenced from the exact same scriptures.
    I have little knowledge in this sort of things... I took it entirely from the wikipedia entry on Karura

    By the way, the reason why Karura was used and not Garuda is because the katakana states it is read as "Karura" Just in case anyone was wondering.

    Also, Mephisto is imo the big bad guy. I wouldn't be surprised all all if he was duping both sides for his own motives. The question is what those motives are

    His motives ? Defeat Satan, of course. Like 99% of the staff.

    Re: Ao no Exorcist by Katou Kazue

    I think that would probably be one part of a much bigger picture. From the kind of things Katou-sensei has shown us so far, I think she wouldn't be the type to give a character/main villain so straightforward and ordinary motive like "defeat satan" It's probably something much bigger and more sinister than that. At least... I hope so. Would be so cliche otherwise

    I hope so too, I was just joking ^^ But, still can't think of anything else... Fortunately, Kazue had already shown us that she have a a good imagination.
    Can't wait to be dazzled once again by her inventiveness

    Re: Ao no Exorcist by Katou Kazue

    I think it's "defeat satan" and "take his place"

    Re: Ao no Exorcist by Katou Kazue

    Good points all of yer, sala, anya, and blackie! I agree, Mephisto's seems to be playing both sides against the middle.

    I think Mephisto wants Satan's position most of all. He isn't powerful enough to get it on his own. But he now has a powerful tool to take out Satan - Rin. Mephisto's current goal is to see that Rin grows to his full potential. He wouldn't be upset if Rin got killed too early, but it would be a nuisance. As long as Rin keeps to his goal to destroy Satan, Mephisto would keep him alive.

    Why does he want power? I dunno. Maybe it's a demon thing. Maybe Mephisto has some other reason for what he's doing. Certainly Satan and Amaimon don't think so.

    Mephisto is a confusing character. He's clearly aligned with Satan, based on his conversations with Amaimon, but he is clearly on the Exorcists' side as well. He's probably trying to benefit from both of the sides, so I'm on the "he's in it for himself" team.

    And Karura is the transliteration of both the Chinese and the Pali name of the exact same entity, commonly known as "Garuda" in English.

    He's not so much aligned with Satan, as rather Satan agrees with his proposal. That's the conversation between him and Amaimon were about.

    oh and i just got the first volume of ANE and its amazing!!!although i do prefer quenn's and saladesu's trans more.
    and welcome to the ANE forum blackie and bexxx!
    I totally agree with you here! I thought that there may be a crack before any sign of any break and that would cause some new changes and developments for rin but also lots of worry for everyone else and maybe rin will have a freak-out at the thought of what he'll become if kurikara is destroyed totally! It'll make a really good storyline anyways.
    Oh I just bought the first volume too! Haha i got the japanese version to stare at the pictures a week before i found out it was being serialized XD and then immediately got it!
    Oh thanx for the welcome too candy ^_^ I kept meaning to do some good ane chattin but never had time (i still don't have it but procrastination is my fuel XD)

    Re: Ao no Exorcist by Katou Kazue

    yeah. but if the series was weekly i dont think there would be as much quality in the actual story. the plot probably wouldnt be as good or well thought out either.

    im thankful for the quality of AnE, but waiting a whole month (2 for the next issue) seriously kills me QAQ

    Ooo I like that Idea about looking for a wallpaper. I'll go see if Mr. Death at JAC has any of the double page spread PSDs without text for you all XD

    (Btw, just to let you know, until we get an official Mod, I'll be the mod/global assigned to look over AnE XD)
