If you read chapters 80 (pp 8-9) and 86 (p 366), the reason why Allen was on the Delete List was revealed. The Earl did realize Allen had an Innocence after making Mana an Akuma but probably was overconfident. No one would have expected that a young child who just invocated could have killed an Akuma especially if it had the soul of his foster father.Originally Posted by Croxx
back on topic: I somehow get the feeling hoshino is putting us in a huge final stage of d. gra-man. I hope there will come new elements in the story, keeping it running on and on..
the sad thing about looooong series, is that it tends to feel draggy...
i'd rather she comes up with something d.gray man related, like the bookman-stuff?
or a spin-off of dgm...?
EDIT: ok...i know i sound like some1 who's playing kingdom hearts chain of memories, desperate to get to riku's part of the story... ><
Can not give an opinion on your last part. But I hope that secrets are gonna be more revealed (are noahs chosen one, are they the most important factor in the fight, what about the background of the other characters,...)Originally Posted by tune
and maybe, why not: an introduction of a new main character
Please,Hoshino-sensei,add more Exorcists!!!!!!
(because somehow,I really doubt they will win,at any rate. Or can someone say something that will encourage me to not feel so depressed? ^^;
the good guys have to win
it's kinda like the rule....
worst scenario: even if the good guys get wiped out and the bad guys are dormant, the world goes round thanks to the effort of the good guys...
(nope, i do not like this assumption, but its the worst that comes to my mind)
i even hope that the noahs (whoever remains)will "change sides" in the end....they are human after all...
Especially, tikky because on that train when he first met allen and he was in company with common humans. And after leaving the train and later on in his fights against allen, his dialogues made me thinking. Tikky is a really dangerous enemy but somehow I always have a feeling of him being on the good side...Originally Posted by tune
that's what i want to, and believe as well
(though i think 2 sides of the coin most of the time..:
if you sum up tiki's personality as "life is but a game/to live is to enjoy", that about hits his actions.
like a cat playing with its prey/meal...he represents "pleasure" afterall...)
i'm 10% -> noahs defect (join exorcists &/ betray earl)
5% -> noahs continue with earl's plans (with the insight that they are right/justified)
85%? -> that much unpredictability coz of the amount of information on hand to us readers now....(might be more >< )
& there must be a well sounded reason to the traitor noah defecting from the earl...
such that he/she was able to cast away the "dark side" of his/her noah blood...
*interested in what the traitor noah represents now >< *
(a far-fetched & much too unprobable thought: he/she represents "humane")<- too unlikely, true
I really hope the most for Tiki to be alive at the end. I mean, he has a bad but also a good side, so there is maybe a chance to erase the bad side (although I love this side of him till death *_*). Please, let there be a chance XD.
what i hope for the most in dgm....
an AllenXRhode romance.
maybe a drastic scene, where rhode admits it, allen too, but rhode dies by allens hands and rinali comforts allen and we get allenXrinali in the end....
because i like both pairings ;D
noahs defecting... i think tiki is the most likely to be the first defector on impulse as he searches the pleasure and doesn't care what means he needs to achieve it.
rhode is the one that most likely would plan such a thing for a long time beforehand - i mean she has the chance to do it and can manipulate the arc on top of that... she would somewhat kick the earls plan back... and i hope allen plays a role in her defecting the earls side... just because that could be what represents the dreams - to be accepted and loved without boundaries of what you are.
hey even a guy can dream of romance in a shounen, right?
Well I think that D.Grayman definately breaks the stereotypes. Might be because the mangaka is female but I think it just might have to do with great writing ability. Allen is a softer hero and I doubt him dreaming of romance is farfetched.
Let's go a bit off topic, no actually we don't. But latest chapters are awesome, fight of noahs against excorsists. But my fear is that this is kinda the final stage we're getting into. Or not? I certainly hope not. But what elements are not explained, what new elements can be given, would there be a great twist? I am wondering, since hoshino is the most suprising mangaka
if* this is the final fight against the noah clan & the earl, then probably it'll be the end of the story (i doubt this since the 2 generals at hq have not yet join the fight & the noah apostles are not completely named yet...)
but for the end of the series, i think not
(i'd like some new adaptation to a different pov, or a sequel?....the prequels are the novels no? ...*thinking too far*)
this is a war between the mind of one mangaka and the minds of many fans of the series....><
(isn't 2 heads supposed to work better than one??)
I doubt this is the end of the manga. There's so many unanswered questions likeOriginally Posted by koenosaki
If she ends the manga now, I would be very disappointed. Besides, didn't the Earl say that this is the first act of his scenario? Therefore, we need an intermission, Act II, and an epilogue.
Anyway, did anyone else get a bad vibe when you heard that Allen was the Destroyer of Time? My sister first interpreted that as a destroyer of the future. I think Allen has two different paths to choice from since he's definitely the x-factor that will determine the fate of the world (the splash cover of chapter 83 kinda points that way too)..
sorry to spoil the fun,
but neither is this the "is this the end of the manga" nor the "what is the destroyer of time" thread...
please get back on topic and if you want to discuss the other topics, take a look if it isn't already getting discussed somewhere else and if not, then don't hesitate to start new threads, that's why we have forums and not a chat here, right?
thanks for understanding
