    I'm kind of an analytic person, so I hope you guys don't mind if I hijack the Analysis section.

    Quote Originally Posted by Analysis of Night 212 by Jaymie
    The chapter begins with Johnny and Kanda chasing after Allen. However, Kanda notices a sinister-looking silhouette that was, in turn, following after them. The way the silhouette was vaguely formed is interesting, because it could be a number of characters, including Fiddler, Link, or even Lulu Bell, whose human form matched the silhouette (not to mention her troubling shapeshifting abilities, which are underused by Hoshino). Throughout the chapter, Kanda repeatedly notices this mysterious person following them, which is Hoshino's way of saying "THIS IS GOING TO BE IMPORTANT GUYS!" But more on that later...

    Allen is, once again, succumbing to the Fourteenth's memories, but this time it seems like it's actually going to happen. He also has an interesting hallucination. It's unclear whether Allen was just imagining what he saw, or if he actually saw a bit of Nea's memories. Either way, it is very obvious that it was a younger version of Mana asking Nea if he hates him. The fact that Allen never saw the younger Mana before (Mana was a middle aged man when they first met in the canon novel D.Gray-man Reverse 3) is what really leads me to believe that it was indeed Nea's memory of the past. I hope Hoshino expands on this in the (near) future instead of teasing us even more.

    In the next scene, Kanda and Johnny come to the conclusion that Crown Clown is still protecting Allen despite the fact that he's a Noah. This is an extremely significant revelation. It shows that the Innocence has the same "ends justify the means" stance as the Order and, most importantly, that Nea may not be as evil as he appears. Crown Clown's behavior also addresses the massive plot hole about why Allen isn't dead yet since he's a Noah with an Innocence attached to his body. Jasdevi's arm practically mutated when he came into contact with Innocence, so it was always curious why Allen wasn't affected by the Innocence he was always in contact with.

    Hoshino could pull another deus ex machina to delay Nea's awakening, but I don't think it would be in the best interest of the story. The perfect pieces are now in place for Allen to turn into the Fourteenth. Johnny, Allen's biggest supporter, Kanda, who owes Allen a great debt, and the suspiciously not-dead Link, who was revealed to be Kanda's stalker during the cliffhanger ending. It's quite possible that Link is Lulu Bell in disguise, but I personally believe that it is indeed the real Link at the end of the chapter. Remember when Lvellie asked Zu to save Link because he needed Link to save Allen (and the Fourteenth)? It is likely that Zu saved Link's life, which resulted in Zu's death because he had already used up most of his life force on healing Allen during the Alma Karma arc. It is likely that we will find out what Lvellie wants Link to do in the next chapter. Unfortunately there is a hiatus next month, which is just cruel on top of the cliffhanger, but Hoshino hasn't disappointed in these last few months. Next chapter should be a great one!

    Fellas!!!

    At least either wait for me to post my POV on who should write what section or tell me beforehand what section you want to write. Look at the OP. We have six people participating in this review. "One person - one section" is a metaphor. I'll most likely end up dividing the analysis and predictions section between two people and add an additional art corner, I dunno, but don't rush things.

    sorry Alpha, but was a bit funny to read

    But yeah lets not rush it, the deadline could for example maybe be longer than the weekly based mangas, since ours is a monthly.

    Will keep checking this thread regularly for updates, hope everyone will do the same

    Yep. There's no need to rush that much, and I'm up on the regular checkups. Just waiting for the go signal.

    After a long night 5 minutes of thinking I came to the conclusion that it's pointless to think too much into it, so I just made a more or less random distribution of the sections. Needless to say that we'll switch the section in the next reviews.

    So, here's the list as in the OP.

    Jaymie (Analysis)
    Cez (Impressions)
    Kisame (Impressions)
    Niko (Predictions - short term)
    Anon (Predictions - long term)
    Alpha (Art Corner)

    I'll explain the double impressions section in a bit.

    You can add people to your contacts and then check who of them are online. Besides, the so called "FF'ers" - Fun Forum'ers log on multiple times a day

    Thanks. I'll figure out how to do that later.

    BTW, The assignments are out, but I doubt it's the go signal just yet. There's still the timetable and well, do we start reviews from Chapter 212 or are we going back a few chapters first?

    There's no real "timetable". More like rough deadlines. I'll bring that topic up later.

    Gotcha. I'll just sit tight and wait for further instructions.

    Don't "sorry" me. Are you and Cez playing a two-man comedy?

    Anyway, I might have a couple suggestions for your predictions.

    Well then that makes a lot of us, lol.

    And truE, this is a very interesting project. I'll admit I've never tried a chapter review before, which makes me a noob in every sense of the word. It's one of the reasons why I'm so up for this. I can already Imagine the fun only made better because this project is joint. And judging by the posts here so far, I'm going to enjoy working with you guys.
