I don't know if anyone else has noticed/mentioned this yet, but in this page we see the symbol on Leverrier/Revellier/Hitler-guy's necktieribbonbuttoncrestwhatever(I do not know what it is called x'D):
It's kind of hard to see it, so I looked up on the raw and found a better quality one (aah my English is awkward, I know.. I just cannot find any better words, sorry):
To me it looks like the Holy Grail o.o What do you think? And could this have something to do with what Leverrier *really* is after ('cuz we agree he's not just after winning the war, right? )? ahh I adore this manga! You really do find something new everytime you read it! ^_^ Hoshino and her assistants sure are amazing
Ahem, since no one seemed interested in my last post (;_; ) I decided to double-post because I'm awesome like that EDIT: A well, It merged anyway so no harm done xD
I wanted to discuss Rhodes first name. Yes Rhode, not Road, It bugs me that the Viz translators and a lot of people think her name is Road D: Her japanese name is written the same as Rhode in for example Rhode Island, and I think that name holds more symbolism..
Rhode was a Greek goddess from the Iliad, and while I don't see a direct connection with Rhode (she was one of the oldest oceanids, and gave the name to the island Rhodes) it fits a lot more than 'Road', also I kinda like that

Ive discussed the Oceanids view on things With some people before (in private chat not forums). So its a possibility. Her name as well as that of some others are directly linked to historical/mythical entities/people. For instance Aleister Crowley, he was a somewhat excentric figure at the time and a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn < a magical order.
Well anyways its derived of some other order again and they got this symbol on the same page btw.Rose Cross
So there is a lot of symbolism derived from many religions etc. And same goes for the names including Roads. Btw her last name is Camelot, this name only refers to 1 place/name in history/mythology and thats Camelot of king Arthur. But i dunno how to place this yet ^^

i don't know what you guys think about this but i think hoshino was giving a hint that allen was the 14th here http://www.cloudmanga.com/D.Gray-Man/56/2/
and this was after allen found out he was the 14th http://www.cloudmanga.com/D.Gray-Man/182/12/ the two skeletons seem pretty similar and appear to be connected to the 14th
Hmm~ this one is kinda obvious xD
I must say that is one intresting hint, i wounder if that will be Allen's new Innocence if he combines Mugen with Crowned Clown.
Waaah that would be cool xD
Well, Kanda didn't left his Innocence for nothing xD
Using 2 innocence, he's following Cross' steps xD
Maybe latest chapter (ch200) brought another hint??
