*goes and cries in a corner for a manipulator who could've been interesting*
Apparently it was necessary for Bon to survive though. Poor guy has a nasty-ass flu from the IK. Also - I like the IK's design. Unique and classic at the same time.
Wish I knew what Toudou's remarks to Yukio and Yukio's thoughts were. Apparently Yukio got shocked by somebody saying "Okumura-kun" behind him. I presume it's a voice he recognizes, but wonder who and if they saw what happened with his eyes.
i'm sorry earth we all know how much you liked todou as the antagonist. look on the bright side! he was still able to mind fuck even as he disintegrated into what looked like a pile of ash.
now for rin....i was excited when i saw the color page because i thought this was a sign that at some point in this chapter rin was going to be able to draw kurikara. unfortunately my hopes fell flat. come on rin get with it your friends are dying out there!!!
shiemi looked PO and i don't blame her. go get them shiemi!!!
okay so bon looked like he was going to pass out from exhaustion before the IK released his miasma. now he looks like he's barely hanging on. i don't know how long the characters think they can rely solely on bon but somebody better get their ass in gear! (directed towards rin)
What a waste of a potentially awesome antagonist and character. I'm a little dissapointed cause i actually enjoyed him more than the actual antagonists of this series. Coloured pictures in ao no exorcist are usually just for show so they never really prelude anything but they are pretty damn nice to look at.
I guess it's sorta expected, but sad because we never found out his goal. It was necessary apparently to give Bon the full power of Karura - it will probably be useful for Bon to help bring Rin back to his senses (Karura is upper class.)
I really want to know how Yukio feels about Toudou's demise. Looks like he's a little down after all that (well, completely understandable - kicked around like a beach ball, using a skill that is exhausting, nearly being strangled, having a demon ability pop out of nowhere...)
I really don't know where Yukio stands in all this cause he's a really complex character, so you'll find he's not as easy to read as say Rin or any of the other characters. I'm honestly unable to see what his current standing is after his talk with Toudou. Is he still harbouring some internal fear? Has he gotten over his fears? and most importantly What exactly is he really afraid of........himself?
People I come bearing gifts....
Finally a chapter!
although honestly I thought it was kinda 'meh-ish'. I' glad they found a way to hold down that guy, but from the looks of it everyone else is ticked off because of it. well he can still regenerate so its not a big deal. I'm more ticked off that rin STILL can't draw his sword! or do SOMETHING!! I mean man if his sword were drawn all of this would be over by now (which I guess is why it isn't but oh well) I hope the next few months brings a conclusion to the arc though...
i hope next chapter rin will be able to unsheathe his sword. its about time, i mean even shura was begging him to break free!!! but this leaves me to wonder...with every other shounen (DGM for instance when allen had to restore his innocence after tikki did a number on it and before it came back as crown clown) will rin's power/form change slightly when he is able to draw the sword? like will his flames be stronger....i mean so far ANE has followed the basic structure of a shounen manga (although a lot better than most) so i don't see why not...

oh and by the way....who the hell is that guy in the cloak!? its been over ten chapters since he was first introduced and we still have no idea who he is!!!!
We've seen Takara ever since the 2nd chapter and we still don't know who he is. ;P and which guy in the cloak?
The Impure King's form cracks me up. XD It looks like a huge moth. Refresh my memory, that beam of light coming from Bon is the barrier right?
And I don't think Toudou's gone. Yukio said it himself, his ashes will only buy a little time, even if they scatter the ashes, the phoenix can still regenerate. So I wouldn't count him out yetm esp since he seems so intent on his goal.
Imo, Yukio seems worried about something, maybe how easy defeating Toudou was? or that someone else is behind everything? Someone was calling him on p. 27 after all...
Kaizer-guy? With the mask which I can't remember what's called?
Kaizer-maskI've been wondering about that too.. I wonder if he's going to be important later (or if he was just one of Todou's "unimportant" accomplices(sp?)...
I think he was talking to the Snake chick.
i don't think that the guy in the mask was mamushi...but i have no idea why. i mean she never said it was her but then again she never said it wasn't....was the guy in the mask just one of todou's random henchman????
Maybe it's the guy behind Yukio? :P
But I root for Toudou being the tip of another group that practices nomming demons (as cool as he is, I think he burned out long before he could figure out how to do that.) His personal goals aren't known, except that he's still carrying on cranky about being the ignored youngest.
Or Yukio is more interesting to them with what he did with his eyes. Poor Yukio. The problem with being a prodigy is that everyone wants him. Everyone.
