Why the hell the first thing I screamed when I saw the cover is "CROSSS!!!" eventhough I know that it's Allen???
And his arm turns to purple...again....
This is the second color page she's done with Allen in that hairstyle. I hope she actually rolls with that in the manga itself, it would be hilarious and amazing.
It makes me remember the zombie arc when Allen drank the potion to grow hair.

^ Even that cover wants me to speculate a bit of the story's future! Ahhhhh... (Ho. Look, Allen wearing Nea's clothing with two different color eyes!! Almost everyone, who could possibly represent the "Third Side", slapped on the cover! *goes crazy*)
From what I researched about it, this book coincides with Jump SQ's release on the 4th (since this is the first time I've ever heard of this). According to Amazon, it's 192 pages of goodness. It's 680 yen which is about right, I guess. Close to the same amount of price for a tankoubon. The borrowed English reads "Character Ranking Book Chara-Gray".
(If I went to the NYC Kinokuniya on the 4th to see this, I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay the imported price for this kind of book. =___= Maybe, I'll look for it in Taiwan where the price is probably cheaper..? I doubt it'll be in Narita Airport during my 3-4 hour layover.. Darn you Nariiita...)

I zoomed in and...
...that's how I see it. O__o (Pardon the hand-writing on it. I don't have a tablet on me at the moment.)
Sorry,don't have a tablet right now either,but anyway.To me it looks like this:
We'll get a higher quality version soon anyway,so it doesn't really matter...
the scar is like Googlez_kun drew a long time ago. Since the chapter 196.
After taking a look at the actual "Character Book" thread down below, Niko_kun provided a less blurry image. So, I enlarged that one and got this...
The scar doesn't look that purple anymore and looks more black leaving the eye to give off a purple/reddish hue. Again though, the quality of the image is more static-sharp, so the color could be thrown off a bit. >__0 We shall see in a couple of more days about this....
(I'm going to keep looking funnily at Allen if he officially ends up with heterochromia iridum thanks to Nea...)
I have to agree with Googlez_kun, in the smaller picture Allen's eye seems closed to me. But yeah, we should know in a few days.
It definitely looks closed to me.
I agree; it looks like Allen is winking
Aaaaah!! I finally see what you guys are seeing!! ああああーーー！！ (Embarrassingly..)
The horizontal mark made it seem like it was the bottom of the eye to me since it consisted of two lines so those threw me off a bit. >.< I wasn't focusing on that. (Sorry to googlez_kun if I gave you a bit of a hard time...T___T)
I'm relieved now.
Edit: As a make-up for my blunder, I shall donate some news...
A Japanese blogger got his/her issue of Weekly Shounen Jump (posted a cover image of that) and apparently, SQ. Anyways, he/she found a note on page 148 of SQ stating:It basically states: "Jump SQ LaB's front cover will feature an Allen and Kanda alliance!"Quote:
As for the July SQ (August edition), the blogger only talked about Allen's long hair on the cover... 0__o Sorry, no pictures of that! >__< But this blogger posted an advertisement for SQ LaB:
The blogger was surprised the image was different from the one that's featured on the SQ website. >.>
Edited fixed extra note after a double check: This is what happens when I don't pay attention to the ending part of a sentence. I should rectify that this should be a blogger's speculation since he/she literally says, "I wonder what I'll be reading in Katsura Hoshino's LaB manga...?"
The blogger gives a guess that the one-shot is about the DGM characters having some kind of soba shop rivalry... That just sounds crazy. -.- Crowley and Allen are employees at a soba shop. The Noahs are the rival shop. Eliade goes into Kanda's soba store (guess he's the owner then?) to scout out the employees. Crowley falls in love with her (of course) as she comes in. I can't believe I'm reading this. #__# This is not exactly what I was expecting when looking at the advertisements so far, but I'm not surprised if this story did come true as it's a one-shot.
(^ For a guess/speculation, this is worthy of being a doushinji! ^^; )
