Not actually during the battle, but the recent re-emergence of Priscilla's sword makes me think she may in fact choose to die and give Raki her black card to die a warrior's death, by a friend's hand.
I doubt Yagi's going to kill anyone. The tone of the story has changed, and there's too much invested in the characters after so much we've seen of them. If any character is to be killed, they'll most likely be minor characters, the nameless ones who are defending Rabona or the more forgettable of Kronos' company of ABs.
Forgive my cynicism, but it's more likely a main character gets glossed over and forgotten in the current arc rather than killed. (Case in point: Renee).
My prediction of the amounts of deaths we are going to see in this final battle.
Five single digits (Rachel among these) -murdered by Europa once she finally gets serious
Galatea-murdered by Europa
Clarice- murdered by the Soul Link
Europa- Killed by Miata
Double digits, ten of them- killed by Miata berserking over Clarice
Raftaela and Anastasia- Killed while trying to stop Miata
Lars and Knight- Killed by Cassandra (accidental death)
Miata- Priscilla shows up and kills her in a heartbeat.
A lot of humans- since Priscilla is hungry.
Now the surviving people shows up.
Chronos is the first to go.
Helen- dies while taking a lethal strike meant for Deneve. (being as hotblooded as she is)
Cynthia- killed by Priscilla, this turns Cassandra into a mindless berserker (since Cynthia looks like 35 after all and it might be possible that they got help from Cassandra by unaware using this as leverage)
This leads to...
Cassandra- torn out from the chest and decapitated.
Yuma is next.
Tabitha runs in to sneak attack on Priscilla, gets disemboweled for the effort.
this is the final push for Miria who decides that in order to save her comrades, she must do the ultimate sacrifice and fully awakens into a new Abyssal one.
She puts up a fight and manage to drain Priscilla´s constant regeneration down to the point were it doesn´t work anymore.
Then gets killed.
Raki is next
and then Priscilla
This is just a guess (a wild one) and I am aware of that... but I think there is a lot of people that are going to die in this fight.
they were spared for a reason after all.
but all in all i doubt that many will die at max 1 ghost will die(probably miria).
the vet AB could go both ways they could live or they could get killed by cassy.
and i think Europa is going to head at clarice, she is smart enough to figure out that you attack the one holding the soul
I think Galatea will probably be the next warrior to go. I'm betting Europa makes it over to her and Clarice, with Miata on her tail. She fakes her death and then strikes at the right moment. It would probably be easy to catch Galatea off guard right now, considering controlling Miata's youki should be too overwhelming to sense whether Europa is still alive.
Sadly, I doubt that we'll see any other warriors die. If the new generation was gonna die, then it should've happened when the resurrected three first surfaced (not to mention after they awakened!).
And as much as I'd like to see Octavia get out of this battle with Cassandra alive, I'm betting that she and the other awakened beings will be dead by the time we find out what's going on with Cassandra.
when it flashes back to Cassandra we will see all the vet AB on the ground around her(probably limbless) and we will see Miria standing infront of cassandra and she will talk to/calm cassandra down.
hopefully we get to see whats going on with cassy in the neext chapter
^I've noticed that some people seem to think that Cassandra is only trying to incapacitate the ABs, but I don't think so. When she was fighting Rachel, Nina & Audrey she cut cut off all their hands and legs before going in for the first kill. Probably the same thing happening here. I guess there is a chance that Miria will intervene (seeing as how she wants all the fire power she can get), but that seems a little unlikely to me.
