    I don't know... I agree with the idea that Allen could technically remove them without issue, but then why would Hoshino spend a page explaining them and their presence, or even include them at all? Is she drawing Johnny into the confrontation, or is she hindering Allen? Or is it both, or something else?

    But if you look at the panels, none of them actually seem to cover a distance of 20 meters behind Allen, or else he blocks anything behind him on page 22. owo

    So true, this is how foreshadowing works my friend. I've noticed recently that this arc in particular has a lot of seeming-less details that don't seem to mean much or contribute much until you really stop to think about it. Example: (1) Kanda's golem which was lingering between his collar for chapters now, (2) Allen's crown clown which was acting up mildly since the very beginning of the arc indicating that Apo was close, few people noticed this, (3) The destroyed printing press machine ,which actually isn't really foreshadowing but I have to admit that after someone in this forum pointed out that this initially seemingly insignificant detail could have been Apo's/ the noah's doing to keep concealed, I was pretty mindblown {: 0, (4) when Kanda used the healing properties in his blood to help johnny ("cough"Krory couldn't do that "cough"), which I'm sure so many people didn't even remember this and instead thought that Link was going to bust through the door with atuda to save the day..... LOL, which come to think of it, seems kind of contrived and ridiculous now. I'm sure their were more but I can't really remember them right now.

    Usually, we would be getting spoilers right about now. Er...well...2/3 of the time, anyway. Guess we are going to have to get used to that. *depression*
    On a brighter note, it is true that we get gorgeous art and fantastic 2-pagers when she comes back from break. *gloom lifting*

    Yeah! Some sorta live-foreverium is kinda what I've been thinking the Earl has been after from the start...what with the references to St. Germain, reincarnation/rebirth, and secret societies a la Golden Dawn and Ordo Templi Orientis, etc.; it seems to fit right in.
    And Alma had one of those black hands marking his chest after he went Akuma...so there's either some sort of connection to Dark Matter, or it's just a design element Hoshino favors. We may never know.

    I would also like to see how Allen would deal with the Earl in this situation. Aaaa, I'm so excited.

    And hell yeah more Earl...he's looking terrifying for the first time in a looooong time. Cannot wait.

    I missed most of the foreshadowing, I'll admit...but it's fun to go back and look for it and say "ah-ha!" Like when Allen is sitting in the alley and CC is giving him trouble? I thought it was just a hangover effect, but you're right--Apo must have been close on his heels at that point.
    Though I have to say, Kanda's golem (Philbert Travers-Moremont) was driving me nuts. I kept thinking things like: Why isn't Johnny taking it away from him? Why does he even have it in the first place? That is not a good way to fly under the radar...I mean, literally having the radar sleeping in your collar. pfft
    And I thought his healing properties were maxed out, but evidently they're still working for the most part since he was able to fix Johnny up pretty well. Strange...it seems like Kanda himself thinks he's winding down, judging by his remarks on the subject. I wonder...is he just busted down to almost-normal, or is he really on borrowed time? Apocryphos smashed him into the pavement hard. What will happen to him now?

    And it was, and now its the second month. We already had the break mentioned in 216. Obviously Hoshino decided to extend it.

    Re: DGM Chapter 216 Discussion/217 Prediction

    Since we're talking about foreshadowing lately... if you look at the chapter, Hoshino makes sure that Allen's handcuff is shown in most panels. So, here's my prompt prediction for next chapter:

    Earl and Allen leave with the ark before Johnny reaches them But then Allen gets constantly shocked because he's too far away from Johnny! And of course the handcuffs are unbreakable; Even the great Hakushaku cannot undo the handcuffs, because Reever is awesome like that And the Noah figure that they can't chop Allen's arm off, because then Allen would be armless when they've cut of his innocence too, and that would just... look too pitiful So then they go back, and the Earl figures that although it's annoying, they'll have to bring Johnny with them too And so Johnny infiltrates the Noah place and will eventually save Lavi, Bookman and the Day!

    It's in the stars, it's Johnny's faith to be the main obstacle to the epicness that is Allen and the Earl's private meeting well, if not him, then it's Apocryphos or Link... if the latter is done with his crepes .... So, I'm going to prepare myself for next month in order to forgive Johnny. I love Johnny, but to disturb such a beautiful moment is almost beyond forgivable but, you know... I just can't seem to dislike any of the characters to a great extent

    But on the more serious side, I am 99% certain that the next chapter will have something super-awesomelicious that is just so super-awesomelicious that Hoshino needs at least 2 months to draw it properly I actually think it's less that she's not well, and more that she's finally reached this point of the story, with the long-awaited meeting between Allen and Earl... She probably wants to do that perfectly


    Hnng, just one more month!! That's nothing we can't survive! 3-4 episodes of the Magi-anime will hopefully relieve my impatience in the meantime.. I've been waiting for that one <3
