Theory (kind of jumbling together of others ideas really). Due to the Early extreme age (7000) he must take "breaks" from being a Noah to rest his mind and abilities. During one of these rests he became a mane known as Mana Walker. Mana had a younger brother who he cared deeply about and when his Noah powers awakened, Neah feared he'd lose his brother forever. So they could stay together, Mana infused some of his Dark Matter into Neah with sorcery to make him "the 14th". But Neah grew hungry for more power and betrayed his brother. After defeating Neah, Mana, hurt emotionally to a great extent, cast of his human side to become completely Noah and can now assume his old body just a kind of disguise.
they look kinda alike,
but if Earl was mana, allen wouldent be able to kill him allen loves him from his heart so :P
AHH we have to wait and see if he is Mana
the new manga is out.. and.. yes mana looks like the earl!
even with the new chapter, i still can't completely agree with the theory. I was thinking that if Mana is the Earl, Cross would've known about it. If he did, this chapter would have been perfect to slip in a teaser or something regarding this matter, but there wasn't anything at all! We got teasers about Neah and a bit of Mana, but not of the Earl. Since i feel that this chapter had the perfect set up and no hint was included, i'm not going with this theory. Though, they do look highly similar....
hmm if mana isnt earl
cant then Mana be related to Earl maby, they look to alike that is to wierd,
i HOPE we will find out soon who he is, if he is mana or not, i am waiting to find out cus he lookt like him a lot but ahhh i wanna knowww
What I thought, if this hasn't been said alrady in this rather huge topic, Rhode knew the Earl for (if i remember corectly) 10+ years, actually think it was more like over 30+ years, or more right?
So that means the Earl's personallity has to have always been there if he was together with Allen (assuming Mana=Earl), wether he acted as Mana or not.
But then the question arise, why was the Earl so surpriced about Allen a few times? Why does he question his existance? It was only when
the Earl realiced Allen had the 14'th memories that he stoped to focus on "Allen" and more on the 14th.
Also it dosn't seem like the Earl to act when his transformed, rather, his "hiding" his feelings.
Wether it gives him more power or not, his hiding behind the mask.
It dosnt add up... I have to re-read the whole thing, it's been years.
um i read the novel translations , it seems like mana and earl have separate bodies as far as the novel goes
hmm i wonder what this means , did they split , was there an illusion , i've seen earl use level 4 akuma to form his coat and weird face in the chapter he gets ready to attack the order
maybe the earl is an illusion road created..? and thats why he looks like mana...or vice versa
Or maybe the Earl can use any form he wants.
Maybe he decided to use Mana's form to get better accepted by Neah, considering that Neah didn't want to stay with the Noah and missed his real brother.>> just a hyphotesis.
I don't know if someone already had said it, but:
This is the sleeve of Mana's jacket (Chapter 135) and look at the buttons!!
Wasn't that the Noah's family crest? (Tyki had the same symbol under his shoe and the 14th's score also has it...)
I was wondering if Neah gave that jacket to Mana or owned it....
But it also could mean that Mana was rather close to them (Road even knows what Neah said to Mana before he died)
Also, The manga makes it sound like Mana really WAS there when Neah died, I'm sure the Earl would have killed him (Road was there, how else could she have heard Neah saying the famous phrase to Mana?) unless! Mana is indeed the Earl himself.
So -sorry if this sound rubbish- I have a new idea:
It could be that the Earl really hated his human side and made 'Mana', putting a part of his own -humanness contained- soul inside Mana.
This made it able for the Earl to kill Neah more easily and letting Mana live for this long.
Since Mana had an soul, he could be able to come back as the Akuma Allen had summoned.
But a part of Mana also returned to the Earl, making the Earl feel a bit broken since he had killed Neah.....
Anyway, Allen is screwed!! Even if this didn't happen, he's in the middle of a really big mess that he doesn't/faintly know about (yet).... We don't even know it yet!
But this jacket could be from another Noah (like Road or Tyki) because, if they're were protecting Allen (the host of 14) when he was a child, Mana was the only one who could be his 'protector' so, they have to help Mana too. But I don't know, seems a little out of sense o_O
