Well I tried to look around and can't seem to find any topic very much related to this discussion.
Anyways, I’ll continue,
Was just wondering, has anyone ever picked up any hints from chapter title pages or volume covers etc?
I caught a few while rereading D-gray a while ago, it seems like Hoshino Sensei has deliberately provided some vivid clues and hints for future references of the Manga. Some I found have been already fulfilled; some are yet to show up.
For example, to make my point more clear on it,
In 1st volume, chapter 3, the title page shows Allen in a weird starry cloak, with a mask in front, resembling the star of the Earl and crown on his head. On two sides, either of the hands appears to be holding things as opposite as to dark and light.
We now know Allen's Innocence, Crown clown, mask, crown and cloak, matches. His two arms are as opposites of each other as black n white.
Now some of the things that are simple hunches and are yet to be seen in D-gray,
In this same volume, in chapter 4, in title page there is this weird creature behind Allen.
Not really much sure what this thing is but just putting in my two cents, I think it's Timcanpy's true form. This thing is like behind and on Allen head in familiar manner like Timcanpy usually does, sitting of Allen’s head and all. And it has the same cross like pattern in front of its eye like on Tim's front and same type of wings. The rest of the stuff like, how its organic structure resembles Allen old left are and its own left seems to be missing, is what I can't determine yet.
Next, another title page in this volume is of chapter 7. Allen is hold a little white dragon in his lap and Tim is sitting on its head.
Now I can't actually think up anything of what's this one is about but it can be some sort of hint of something we might see in D-gray future developments.
Has anyone spotted some more of such details? Include them in so we can enjoy some significant predictions… XD

umm well no one yet believes me about lenalee being the "saint" but i was looking at the episode names and when lenalee was going up against the lv 3 with her old dark boots and she was loosing it was called "The Saint Who Fell into Darkness".
I wonder if this means that timcampy has a true form that will have great importance in the future. It looks more akuma-like so maybe it will have something to do with the fourteenth, besides what we already know
Anyway thanks for all this what not
Yes I believe that you may be right. Because not only due to the title of that episode but also, in, I think second chapter of volume 3, behind Lenalee there is a profile picture of a female saint.
Also in second volume, behind Kanda we see this saint type guy, with hair, with a golden mask as it seems, with tattoos on his face which lines/design resembles that tattoo on Kanda's chest.
PS to Rhapsody blue: Thanks for editing my first post.
thats a really good point about timcanpy ive read this theory a while ago (cant remember were). just thinking maybe that is the 14th noah's true form like tyki miks true form
Lenalee isn't the saint mentioned in chapter 150. Not only does all the evidence in the chapter point to it being Hevlaska, it can't be Lenalee for even more obvious reasons (she wasn't born when the Order was founded, and she's not a member of the Rouvelier family). The "saint" thing could easily just refer to Lenalee being an Exorcist, since they're seen as being protected/chosen/whatever by God.
There was a thread earlier about the various references to Allen's possible Noah-ness, I think... Haven't been able to find it, though.
That Timcanpy thing is really cool! It does look like him, even with that big mouth that we've seen on Tim before. Hmmm... I wonder if we'll ever see it in the story...
Yeah! I didn't even realise it... Cause I was rushing through all the chapters all the time I re-read them that I didn't pay attention to the covers and thus missed them all.. ><
So what does everyone thinks about that 3rd title page with a white dragon in Allen's lap....? Type of innocence...?
Any wild ideas?
Allen gets another innocence that works like Klaud's monkey...? Hehheh...
That, or it just looked pretty. ^^
Great thread! I think the white dragon is probably his innocence.
I wonder if she left any hints for us in this picture of Allen's bedroom.
Thats his room?! I thought his room was different. But if i had too look for a clue, hmmm maybe the cross?
Or the pumpkin-> relo ??
(Most of that stuff was in the room before, actually. Well, except for the bed and food. That picture of the thing carrying the cross coffin, though - didn't he have that in his old room?)
You mean this?
Makes me want to look for clues in that mysterious room.
^Yup, that's it. Hey - that picture I pointed out wasn't originally there! (So maybe Allen took it with him after all?)
So this is an obvious one:
Actually, I wonder about this, too:
Wasn't he wearing this after returning from the Ark? =P
And speaking of an earlier picture:
