I think Yukio is close to the limit, lol. The last fight with Toudou is the prime proof for me. But I think he didn't even know about his eyes? I thought he had only started to realize his strange power in that fight, and although he obviously lied to Shura when he said his check-ups were regular and just fine, I don't think they would've found out something was wrong with him, especially his left eye. Hoping it's indeed the correction then. :3
And I doubt anything can bind Rin; he's too much the explosive type, and if some demons come at him for breaching the contract he and friends may as well just destroy the demons, haha. XD
^ I don't think demons working for humans are that special. We've seen quite a few of them before, and most of them seem to do it willingly. Mephisto is kind of an exception because he's so high-class though.
Yukio knows something happened with his eyes, but he probably doesn't know what. No idea where the 'left eye' came from; I think it's a mistake, either from the mangaka, the translator, or Yukio himself. I hope we learn more about it soon, because the kid is going crazy with uncertainty right now.
(He wasn't lying to Shura though, his check-ups were fine. Apparently the demon-detecting ability of the tests employed by the Order leaves to be desired.)
This was a great chapter. Mephisto's speech was perfect. Guess everyone is wondering what's going to happen next. I posted some thoughts about Mephisto's speech:
Gotta leave it to someone who quotes Nietzsche to make us wonder. I wonder if Mephisto wants to see a world where humans and demons get along...
Manga Therapy, huh? I'm surprised their isn't an in-depth post on Yukio. The kid has enough psychological issues to fill a rudimentary evaluation.
Mephisto is just moving pieces into place. He's not being challenged at the moment, so I'm kinda waiting for him to be challenged. I found it amusing how he broke the fourth wall by talking to the author (with the "I want to sleep" comments).
I'm not surprised the demon detection tests are off. I think Toudou might have been able to fool them, at least since Toudou could switch to looking completely human despite consuming a demon. Most demons can't seem to do that. I think Yukio is not a demon and has abilities that are similar in function to the demon eaters. They all draw off power from another demon.
Next chapter will probably be more on Rin, since this was more Yukio. Hopefully we'll get a major emergency starting up...
Yukio a demon eater? Hmm... Toudou said, "Those are not your eyes." Maybe they really weren't his eyes. Maybe Yukio has some sort of pre-natal familiar contract with his brother, or Fujimoto created some sort of magical bond between the two brothers so that the older brother could protect the younger brother even if they were physically separated. I'd actually prefer that than Yukio just being/becoming a demon.
damnit change the title to twincest or satan's son or flaming blue priest
Well, I guess some people would like it...
why is ANE posted under yaoi? how is it even close to yaoi????
Yes, I think it because of a twin connection
that allows Yukio to borrow Rin's power
Maybe you could say half of it should belong to Yukio, but it only passed to Rin
I can understand Yukio is frustrated because he feels like he will never be as good as his brother
and at the same time he has to take care of rin
its mentally damaging to hold someone on a pedestal, while you are met every day with reasons to further this notion and reasons not to
Yes, Yukio has got to let go of the image of his brother protecting him as a kid and get out of rin's shadow
meh it difficult, seeing as he still has protect rin and watch him
I think with shiro gone he feels like father-brother and its too much
needs to to talk it over with rin so they can be real bros
This is where you can post and discuss the spoilers for the next chapter of Ao no Exorcist.
Here's my prediction. At the students-only dance, the illuminatti attack. Then, Rin is outed as the son of Satan, and all the muggle students are all "LYNCH HIM!" "LYNCH HIM!", but then he saves the day and he's suddenly super popular. So popular in fact, he completely forgets to study for the exorcist exam, which, if you recall, he is required to pass on his first try or else...
I think the muggle students would be too busy running away...
