    Character Analysis

    Howard Link is the first character to appear in the chapter, which begins with a brief summary of the encounter with Apocryphos. Link seems confused as he awakes in bed with Dr. Zuu patiently sitting in a chair next to the bed. Link appears to be amazed that he survived the encounter. Zu reveals to Link that he saved him with the Atuuda spell however Link is "unfortunate" to have survived in this manner because he is now responsible for the Atuuda. After speaking with Malcolm Leverrier Link appears a bit frightened yet motivated about the Atuuda spell he inherited from Zu and his new , hidden mission to “protect” Allen Walker. As usual Link has an unconditional loyalty to Leverrier and seeks out A.W. only to be discovered by Kanda Yu while attempting to keep his agenda hidden. Link tries to lie and say that he ran away , and Yu does not believe him.

    Malcolm L’verrier is an interesting character in this chapter, in the past his actions lead us to wonder whether ultimately he was a good guy or a bad guy, or just had his own agenda all together, yet this chapter his motives seem to be good and he appears to want to “protect” the 14th. L'verrier also discloses that Cross Marain told him everything about the 14th , which could have lead to this change in his attitude. L’verrier wants to keep Link’s survival secret for what seems to be a noble cause, yet I am still a bit suspicious of him…

    Kanda Yu rarely disappoints, he remains his normal self threatening the life of Link if he dares to put his hands on “Beansprout” and doubting Link’s story about being on the run.
    Yu’s role in this chapter is somewhat limited as the majority of the chapter focuses on Link.

    Dr. Zu looks really tired and spent, he explains to Link about saving his life and transferring the Atuuda to him, Zu’s character is very similar to how it has been since we first encountered him at the Asia division, he has consistently been the knowledgeable old man who has good intentions.

    Allen Walker and Johnny only make a brief appearance . Johnny is holding Allens hand kneeling by the side of the bed where Allen rests. Johnny’s unwavering loyalty to Allen is in full affect as he appears to be distraught with Allen’s struggle to fight against the Noah host taking over
    Allen walker appears to be transforming into a Noah, which leaves quite a teaser for the next chapter!!!

    Hater impressions

    First off, we only get to see Allen Walker for one page….Isn’t he the main character?
    Not to mention the apparent disappearance of Lenali and Lavi from the series, we as fans won’t stand for this!!!
    And what is up with all of the underwear shots of Howard Link? I think one would have been enough. This was a good background chapter (with details about Link’s survival and L’verrier’s encounter with Cross) , but I feel like it lacked action, excitement and progressive story related content.
    For this manga to only be released once a month, and be over 30 pages I feel like it left out some elements that will keep its readers interested and hungry for more.

    Guys, I just want to clear this beforehand. Once anon will post the review, this thread will be locked which naturally means that you won't be able to post in it. So, until I open a 214 JR thread everyone should gather in the HQ Thread and discuss everything they want over there.

    Ok, it's posted. Tell me if I did something wrong since I kind of removed something in the beginning and before the end of the list.

    Updated the OP. Guys, start choosing which sections you want.

    ---------- Post added at 01:37 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:36 PM ----------

    Right, about the Fanboy/Hater sub-section of the impressions. I wanted to try out such an experiment so we'll go with this format for now. Just as the name suggest, two different people will write the two sections. One person, the "fanboy" will praise the chapter. Likewise, the "hater" will bash the review.

    Is that clear?

    ---------- Post added at 01:46 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:37 PM ----------

    Bad News. Kisame hasn't logged on since 18.04, so we'll need a new reviewer. Any suggestions, you two?
    is the hater impression supposed to bash the review or the chapter?

    How did I write such a fail?

    It's supposed to bash the chapter obviously, not the review.
