And if Allen sports that ponytail again, he's really going to remind me of FMA's Edward Elric! @__@ That's what I see everytime he wears that ponytail of his. But, hair growth definitely should be noticeable after 3 months for some characters. Especially with Lenalee.
Yet, this would play out probably a bit smoother if Kanda returned a few more chapters later. The "return" honor appears to go to Allen this time. o__o And I'm gonna guess Johnny gets lost, is cornered by several Akuma and is saved by Allen in true shounen rescue fashion. Hurrr... *rubs chin*
Although, I was expecting the predictable scenario that everyone in Team!Allen would be stuck with an enemy. Mugen is sitting somewhere and it suddenly shines, shaking off the rust. Kanda shows up out of nowhere with the new improved Mugen.

Hmm well if she still wants to make it for the next volume deadline she has to boost pagenumbers once or twice. Thing is her release rate dropped since it went monthly already and i think volumes and merchandise is her main income. So she has no choice ^^.
Good to see that there is multiple characters and some nea-road stuff perhaps. But i dont want to get my hopes up yet. I mean it could just be that sheryl starts asking and then we skip to a next scene ...-_- without getting much info.
Hoshino is good at that lol.
Also the Kanda thing? Smile? Kanda?... ok then... lol
-Kanda's back so soon 0o0 and smiling? I think he's going to ask where Allen is *nods nods*
Maybe he asks Lenalee and Marie to not to tell that they saw him....
-And Johny left the Order? Well, he's lucky he's a scientist..... 'Nough said xD
-I hope Allen has a ponytail~ He looks a lot more handsome that way~
-My best friend is going to be so happy with Lavi hahaha...
P.S: Haha lol Sheryl, What do you mean with obsessed with Road haha XD
I think people are overestimating what Kanda coming back means. Knowing Hoshino, it will be a HI GUYS LOL situation. The biggest news is Johnny leaving. That means that others (aka Lenalee, Kanda, Marie, etc.) Might be willing to leave the Order as well.
As for Kanda i shrug back or not his role is more or less finished, all thats left is him playing a role in the endgame and possibly die. Thing is he knows now hes not meant to be alive. So he will aid his friends and thats that.
As for Lavi and Lenalee they still have a role to play. Lavi has the entire bookman thing with him being the next one, and Lenalee has the dreams she dreamed the same as Allen. So there is a story to tell.
I miss sad arcs like the Suman arc. That was só amazing and lovely! A dark plot with a great conclusion. This chapter sounds amazing but i wish that chapters like that could back. )
but what is the worst in all this...is that... the chapter is still not out ;/
anyway I wonder if road lives... or did she die and sheril is pissed..."my road...my road !!" well a blow from apo is something different after all...
still it would be interesting if road lives but the blow kinda unlocked her full memories... so now she remembered the words neah left to mana... maybe she will kinda follow and help allen more than she will help the rest of the family...

That mod has the wrong raws, that right there is the character book!
How do you know that his role is finished? Are you Hoshino-sensei in disguise? Just because we found out something big about Kanda and he's found the person he was looking for doesn't mean his role is finished. A character is capable of growing over the course of the story and for all we know this could be Kanda's true starting point. He's been obsessed with fulfilling his quest and now that he's done that he can actually start living. Hoshino could take the character a whole new direction and create a new role for him, cos that's what writers do, especially good ones. They don't just cast aside a character once he/she is 'done'.
(1) Kanda could be at a loss for purpose now that he has accomplished his dream of finding that person. After all, a dream that is accomplished and comes true was never a dream at all... It was more like a goal. Now, how many of you set a goal, accomplish it, and then decide to just go and die since you're done with that? One of my hopes in life is to fall in love. If I do fall in love and that person were to leave me or die, I sure as hell am not going to sit around and wait to die. That Is what I define as being weak. By no means do I see Kanda as a weak character. So this leads us to our next scenario...
(2) Kanda will find closure in his meeting with Alma, and seeing him off to death. Kanda will now be able to focus on the life he has created as Yuu Kanda, and not as the person/Exorcist he used to be 30 years ago. I believe that he is now Kanda through and through, and can let go of his past. He is officially part of the war now.
I still think it would be insane for Kanda to return to The Order. I'm hoping that he found Lenalee and Marie outside of the HQ, on a mission. I think he will ask them about Mugen and get information on what is happening within the Order. I highly doubt he is going to return to his Exorcist status and go on missions, unless it is only a ploy to get his Innocence back.
With all this talk about Kanda not being Kanda, or something, i want to see what he looks like
The others don't know, for example. that Kanda's hair is now a light purple. So, if the Kanda that comes back looks the same....well, at least we'll know that something is off. On that note, how did he waltz into the order so easily? I mean, should Central be all over him or something, to get some details on Alma, or maybe even Allen? I highly doubt he would be able to easily waltz in there especially if he didn't have his Mugen with him. I don't know if it might be Lulu, though it would be a very,very awesome twist if Hoshino used the same trick twice, to point out just how weak the order is. I'm also entertaining the idea that someone on the Heart's side can also transform, just like Lulu. that should be interesting.
Johnny leaving is a true surprise. He just earned some brownie points back for doing something rather than being the mopey of the series. On that note, i wonder why the other Exorcists haven't left on their own/have not been sent out to look for Allen...
Chaoji is back... I'm sad and kind of excited... with him hosting a mini spy inside, we're bound to get something interesting out of that. Btw, his innocence might not be able to "sense" the spy, most likely because it's an equipment type, not parasitic, like Allen's.
As much as i like Lavi and feel angry, that he got beat up by Sheryl, i absolutely can't wait to see that in the current art style. Where's my Fiddler?? =(
Chapter seemed a bit short, but a few interesting things seem to be on the list...
BTW, Sheryl's monocle/telescope seems very interesting... reminds me of how the Earl suddenly woke up when Allen was getting
rapedattacked by Apo and how his eye kinda... floated on the page above the scene... Sheryl's reaction to Road is also very interesting. makes me think that it wasn't Sheryl who was so angry perse, but possibly the Noah of Desires itself? Food for thought, lol

Another thing is the (he can actually start living). He didnt really look like he wanted this life when we had the flashback. The only role i can see for him is a role of vengance i do not think hoshino will use on him. Since Alma already tried that. And the only other way is that Alma gave Kanda a purpose by telling him to live on for the ones they love/care for or something.

Thats the kinda thing that happend to Kanda, if hes back now there got to be some really good reason or at least some other explanation to what hes up too.
He might be looking for vengeance or actually wants to help Allen but Allen already left the order. Or like i said its possible that Alma (the girl) asked him to protect his friends untill his time is up. Which kinda makes him a second line character (like it or not)
Let's make a bet on how long Lenalee's hair is gonna be... I say to the shoulders :P
