And yes, it would be interesting for that to happen.
I am so happy the chapter finally came out. I love Hoshino's art style this chapter, it fits perfectly to the story and the characters look really nice and recognizable compared to her previous art. I love the content of the chapter except i wanted to flip ahead in the chapter during the johnny scene. Im happy we saw allen again but i wish we saw more of him really only one panel but i guess that is better than nothing.
So, I grinned like a Noah at school reading the chapter. There was just something about Kanda sipping the Innocence out of Lenalee's hand that made my face warm (and I was probably blushing too). What is this? I ship Allen/Lenalee but... but...
Kanda's last words to Zhu was touching in a Kanda way. Even if he doesn't forgive the Order, he thinks fondly of Zhu and I think that's enough for him.
I love the scene between Johnny and Reever. I'm always amazed by how well Hoshino can write minor characters. (Well, they're not becoming minors so much now.)
Ah, Allen! If a little girl found you, you'll be easily discovered by Apo.
I ship allen/lenalee but Kanda did he just drink from her hand? lol Doubt he's crushing on her yet though after what happened with Alma/lover anyway this is a good chapter seeing kanda getting a new ability now will be fun, i wonder who he was in his past life its been mentioned he is the forceful lotus itself but i got confuused thre, i should reread dgrayman i guess with the monthly stops i forget stuff.
anywho good scenes showing the Johnny rever and Zhu as well as kanda's feelings, i like this consistency and character development in the manga ^^
Allen seems to be powering up too hopefully because he's training against the Noah in him but it wont be easy, i wonder what new arm he'll get
remember hoshino said that she was gonna do more fan service...hence kanda x lenalee in this chapter. i don't think a relationship is gonna develop b/c kanda's heart belongs to that girl aka alma
Also the thing about Kanda sipping from Lenalees hand o well just fanservice for the girls that love Kanda so much. Nothing more nothing less. It actually overshadows the entire question of why he decided to come back and take on his innocence once again. Also that he refuses to tell where Alma *his body* is. No doubt about it, it didnt disappear. And the order would be more then happy to take it and dissect it.
As for the Johnny thing, now we got a change with Reever and he might let him go. So perhaps next chapter we see him looking for Allen and i hope some noahs because we get so few of the noahs its crazy.
The main downfall with this story is that its all useless characters like the other scientists who recognize Kanda, or a few extra shots of Kanda looking around the corner of a door, that have little to no aditional info in this chapter, yet we miss out on lets say noahs and Lavi.
We get only 3/4 bits of info and a load of fanservice shots of Kanda. It wouldnt be to bad if it were 40 pages then you get extra room for more but thats not the case here.
Does that make sense? It's hard to distinguish between the two different ideas of "Kanda" I have going.
personaly I dont want to see KandaXLenalee... becouse its well toooo strange... some time ago when kanda was alive she did not show any love interest with kanda....and he did not show any inerest in her... but now as lavi and allen disappared she would instantly jump into arms of any guy like that..rather not at least not lenalee who thinks whole order is her family... so I doubt lenalee would just like that develop love feelings for kanda becouse he just come back and drank from her hand... well she grabbed his innocence like that so he had no other way...
but just look how he treated that lenalee hand as he drank it... he pushed it away like it was some kind of glass (not much affection there) xD while lenalee was still in shock with others... Kanda simply teased her that's all... first pissed her off and now put her in shock xD
as for kandas scene with drinking...we can reffer allens scene where he was hugging lenalee...so we too can do allenxlenalee pairing from it...
so nah dont think kandaxlenalee is possible just from this single tease scene.... Kanda still thinks about Alma and that girl....becouse if not he wouldnt care to tell leavier almas location....or wouldnt tell Zuu that he will go to hell.... becouse what order did to him and that girl is somethng he will never forgive and we see he still have it in his heart
and my guess what kanda said when synhro with mugen is what allen said... become exorcist for himself and not for the order....so it wouldnt be strange if he decided to go with johnny to see and help allen... kinda bodyguard of him
well the most strange is that lenalee is not even seeing off johnny... its strange becouse when allen was in order she and him were allways around allen and following him everywhere (lenalee was even sleeping in the same room as allen as she rushed back from her mission)
well maybe becouse she is in asia branch and johnny is in order.... but im sure she will be there when he will be leaving...maybe then she will build some self resolve to help allen as he is all alone now like she was when order took her away from komui... hope she will wake up...
The scene with Kanda drinking from her hand is pure fanservice *there could be something else to it but its not romance* Ill keep that theory to myself for now ^^
There are more examples of fanservice that include the use/abuse of Lenalee this isnt something big or to be thought of seriously, especially since Kanda already has his love interest.
- Bak persuing her.
-Timothy groaping her breasts.
-That scientist eyeballing her.
As for what Zibi said about Lenalee seeing him off well she hasnt even heard about Reever who is most likely letting him go now, so obviously she cant see him off. Its not like she can do telepathy no?

^I agree. I think Kanda just did that just to taunt Komui and Bak since he knew that Komui is very protective of Lenalee while the latter has a crush on her.
The next chapter is going to be exciting - how will Allen escape from Apo? He can't use his Crown Clown against him that's for sure.

BUt more importantly the art was so beautiful this time around, there were more pages and I could understand what was going on in every panel. Keep it up Hoshino!
so I think that johnny will at least say goodbye to his friends in order before he leaves....
