On the 14th/Allen: My interpretation was that they aren't two separate consciousnesses. It's always Allen, it's just that he does an unconscious personality/memory switch sometimes. He doesn't have blackouts or anything - he doesn't even realize it happens sometimes (or didn't until the time with the Earl. I interpreted that as Allen suddenly going "wait a sec, this isn't something I'd say!"). After all, the 14th is dead, and it's just his memories that are in Allen. None of the other Noah have two consciousnesses, but we do see Tyki behaving totally different in his human/Noah forms.
the fact that Crown Clown is malfunctioning could be the sign of the 14th (the innocence doesn't want to work with the noah). Plus, to become fallen, you have to aid the Noah/Earl. Obviously, if allen is not a fallen one yet, he had yet to hit the betrayal part, and that might mean that 14th may not be an ally, but also not an enemy... It could also be that if allen's mind retreats while 14th takes over, teh innocence also becomes useles..
like wise with kanda. Allen and Kanda have fought/spared before (albeit without innocence) and have hurt each other. I'm sure the innocence knows when the user means harm.
Another AWESOME chapter.xD
Although this chapter quite slow actually, but none the less, AWESOME.xD
This chapter make me sad cause seeing Allen trying so hard to stop those two. The Kanda vs Allen is also sad, reminds me of Allen vs Lavi in Noah Ark Arc.
Apparently, Kanda really going berserk when he's in 5th Illusion + might going to die according to Zhu.:S
So Alma had a somehow positive(may be) reason to kill Kanda so as Kanda.
It's really shocking that Kanda STABBED ALLEN so real.T_T And the EARL is really HAPPY.
ALLEN TURNED GRAY.xD
In the end, looks like Kanda regain control of himself while Alma still decide to finish things with Kanda.
Next chapter is gonna be real shocking IMO or so I hope.xD
Btw, pg 18 or 19, Kanda AWESOMENESS!!!!xD
@yingsu: I think volume 21 will consist of 6 chapters cause these few months chapters got only 31 pages, with chapter 194 only 20-21 pages.
Off topic: Wonder what the fangirls or fanboys think when seeing half-naked Kanda VS half-naked Allen.xD

This was chapter was so beautiful, and I was so grateful that somebody found the raw that I went and made an account on here. So, for making my life awesome, thank you.
But, after reading it, I was really bothered on why Kanda stabbing Allen led to him becoming a Noah. So, after thinking about it, I am willing to bet my freakin' socks, my smelly good luck charms, that he has the Heart. And, that's an extremely large accusation, and I'm probably wrong since I'm usually wrong about these things but, I am going for that ball. I mean, why else would Kanda even be there, especially after he had been on that bus for so long and was seen as a background character for most of the manga? Why would we need to know at this certain point in the manga that his life sucked, rather than any other point? Because Hoshino is a gigantic troll, and led everyone to think that Lenalee or Allen had the heart, when it was actually Kanda. That would be the best type of irony, since he's pretty heartless normally. And, I'm sure with the heart being the "strongest of all the innocence" it could do something like awaken a Noah. Plus, Kanda received his innocence under odd circumstances, and the innocence do have minds of their owns, so to speak, so you could say that the Heart pitied him or thought his will was strong. And, it would add a little bit of an explanation to why the Earl targeted Alma and Kanda, maybe he was trying to kill two birds with one stone? Get Allen, and destroy the heart? That would be pretty convenient for him. But, lol, speculations.
Oh, and I read the posts about Alma being the Heart, and I don't think Alma is actually capable of using innocence anymore due to being part Akuma. Can Akuma wield innocence? I don't even know, man. (Haha, I'm late.)
But, hah, I'm rambling now since I'm so excited about this chapter, and how it's making me think.
I also noticed the manga looked a little wonky. Hoshino is going too wild with those hands and bodies. Well, I hope her hand isn't still getting to her. That would be horrible.
Edit: just checked a few different sites, one translation said "the fourteenth apostle is too long, so I'll just call you 'boy' alright?" while another said "The fourteenths name was kinda long, so let's just call him a young man, alright?

maybe allens innocence will become useless when he becomes a full noah, he will have to fight as a noah. or maybe somehow the innocence and the 14th will work together. the 14th probably had a plan why would he put his memories in allen who was born with innocence if it will be useless to use the power.
u guys gotta remember what cross said. the 14th had no time to choose who he put the memories into. just when he got the time to, in between running from the noah, he put the memories into somebody. in essence its like being surrounded by a group of people with your eyes closed than spinning around in a circle until you stop and who ever you point to is choosen. there's really not any possible way for the 14th to have purposely choosen allen(somebody with an innocence). heres the chapter http://www.cloudmanga.com/D.Gray-Man/167/6/
