Going back to 132nd chapter for a bit, whom do you think Yagi had in mind when he wrote "Those free to loiter" (chapter title)? Awakened beings? Claymores?

Just now I've noticed that the sentence on page 3:
is strange (most probably not on Gernot's end but Yagi's). It's been explicitly stated that Isley parted with Raki and Priscilla because he felt cornered and didn't want them involved in his mess. That would mean that the game of cat and mouse lasted these few years which is ridiculous IMO. That's insane to think that both Isley and The Organization would act like retards and their actions be so slow (the difference being that time was advantageous to MiB who were producing more warriors/weapons with every day). How many times would Isley have to deal with AEs then? And do practically nothing to them or Organization? Was he really so stupid? And while time was advantageous for MiB there must have been a quicker way to deal with him if they could produce AEs faster than Isley could recuperate.Originally Posted by Gernot's translation
and i think the tittle was refering to the awakened beings who were loitering around the holy city
Here's what Gernot had to say about that:
And my response:Originally Posted by gernot
Yeah, it is messed up especially after learning how long it takes for everyone to travel from one place to another. As for Isley defending himself for several years, I've always found it unrealistic. That would make him a complete retard. He run from ZACS (that's why half of the southern towns were obliterated) but it was a thoughtless struggle.
Plus there are ideas you came up with. That's why I prefer to think that this game lasted no more than a year since that at least makes him less stupid.
- He just wanted to kill 6 of them, nothing more and didn't notice that at this point his work would be of no use to him and he might as well hang himself. What was the point of defeating 6/11 of zombies' troops if it didn't stop them from going after him at a later time, maybe with bigger numbers?
- He had the advantage that zombies were after him and he was the one to choose location and every time he chose towns, WTF? There were dozens of better options like setting up a trap (even a hole would do so that they couldn't escape or he could have waited for them in a cave so they wouldn't be able to attack him from all sides).
- If he couldn't defeat them he could at least escape. He could have stolen MiB's boat/ship or swim using youma power (he's a freaking abyssal, if the best human is capable of swimming 500 km non stop then I would think that one of the best ABs would be able to do at least that). Even if AEs could swim they wouldn't be able to smell him in the water.
As for MiB, it's true that they were probably trying to provoke him and the slow approach might have been the best course of action but seeing how difficult it was for Isley to regenerate after each attack the way I see it they could have gone for a finishing blow earlier.
Personally, I always felt all three of them spent the majority of the 7 years together, and the last year or so was when Isley was on the run...don't have much to back up what I say, since I'd have to pull up some links.
Time to focus on the new chapter though.
