Also, it seems to me that even if they wanted to simply kill Cassy it wouldn't be that easy, just saying....

I've asked the same question (the one about not killing Cassandra) practically the moment we got to know Miria's brilliant plan and there is no logical answer for this. Miria preferred to risk fighting Cassandra AND Priscilla rather than only Cassandra. It's retarded reasoning mainly because even if she would succeed in bringing Clare back (in order to stop Cassandra from merging by freeing Clare) she would also free Priscilla and there would be nothing stopping her from going to Cassandra and merging with her (at least she had no basis to assume that and the risk of this plan backfiring was too great).
That's why I think that the reason Priscilla/Destroyer hasn't done so already is because of quasi-Riful. She just prefers to absorb her rather than Cassandra (and she can always do it later, I don't see why anything would change after Cassie would regain control over her body, she lost it one, she can lose it again).
^ Id laugh my ass off if Cassandra was freed from Priscillas control only for her to go under again straight away XD
Your right about Priscilla wanting the Riful-Doll, but say if she does absorb it who says she still wont want Cassandra too ? Id like to see Miria get out of that one !
imagine if yumacynthiatabitha+galatea+raftela+others synchronize their yoki with cassandra and somehow, she completely reverts. I wonder if such a thing were to occur, how would the other awakened react. Would they want to revert as well?
Then the ultimate conflict for clare would be: kill priscilla or play magician with her too D:<
Didn't expect that!
Riful is totally destroying Prissy!
Who could have guessed that?!
Although, I'm pretty sure it's not the end of it...
PS: I don't know if someone put the link already, but the chapter is out:
As someone posted above, it's important to remember just how many times it 'seemed' like Priscilla was going to have her ass handed to her, only to be completely healed in the next scene. The fact that they didn't show her head completely detached at the end of this chapter probably means she'll be fully healed early next chapter.
Just finished the chapter in English. I don't really care for the way yagi is expressing the power of these creatures. First it was 'abyssal ones' then its the 'exceeds the abyssal ones'. Now it's 'exceeds the exceeds', I meen really?? Free super duper power ups for everyone I guess.

On AS Casshern has made a very interesting (albeit short) post:
Great observation.Originally Posted by Casshern
If someone took control of the Destroyer and fused with it and then tried to change to human form maybe it would take the form of the person controlling the Destroyer?
Like if Raki took control of the Destroyer he may be able to transform the Destroyer to look like his human form.
I mean, of course since Cassy is "awake" Prissy would have to use force to absorb her, that was implicit.
Anyway, Miria's plan is NOT STUPID AT ALL.
She knows very well that Cassy will risk anyway to be absorbed by Prissy, but that doesn't matter (since it's unavoidable).
The real key and objective of Miria's plan is to add to Cassy's strenght the ghost's strenght and the ABs' strenght.
In other words there is a risk very very VERY high that the plan won't work (everyone know this), but it doesn't change the fact that Miria's plan is the ONLY plan that could theoretically oppose Prissy the greatest power in their possibilities (Cassy+ghosts+ABs) and that's the reason why Miria's plan, despite being a crazy plan with very low success probability, it's still WHITHOUT A DOUBT their best plan possible.
There are only two other variables that Miria didn't consider and that could produce a victory against Prissy even if Miria's plan should fail: chibi-Riful and Claire.
The reason why Miria didn't consider chibi-Riful is obvious.
The reason why she didn't consider Claire is because ,well, it's because it's not even clear if Claire could be a match for Prissy or not (and surely Miria can't imagine something like that.......and even if she knew something about Claire, sure as hell she could never bet everything on that hope, especially since even if Claire could come out with some surprise like in the past, it's not that that would be in contrast with Miria's plan)

That means nothing though....as before - we've seen AO's and Priscilla seemingly can beaten to the point of death, only to, with immense boredom, complete eviscerate their opponents. I suppose in fairness, the mental struggle going on could be a reason for why "Riful" seemingly has the advantage.Quote:
Chronos and Lars shock...it's not really the shock of actually sensing and seeing a stronger being; they are just blown away by "Riful's" prowess...we'll see soon enough if it's really justified or not.
That said....I have to be honest; I'm getting a little lost....their are so many darn plot-points going on that I'm honestly, and have been, losing a sense of where things are....let me see if I have this all straight.
=The Ghosts, plus Raki, successfully arrived in Rabona before Cassandra and met with a group of Awakened Beings (who are all copies of previous characters in one form or another) who have all circled around the Blob because they can sense the incredible power...Claire successfully broke out, with no sign whatsoever of any changes. They then met with the Rabona Girls, and all the rest to organize a defense when Cassie arrives.
=Cassie, meanwhile, has seemingly been drawn to the blob by Priscilla somehow (not gonna debate the "how" on that), after we saw the after-image...apparently, Raciella has no body of her own anymore and Priscilla and Raciella are both fighting for control of the former's body, which has led to a synthesis - Priscilla (who is now Rafaela + Luciella + Raciella+herself 0_0) now shows Raciella's abilities, in particular the supposed absorption. Apparently they intend to absorb Cassandra to gain leverage over the other. The Ghosts intend to stop this merger from happening, presumably, or at least, stop her from unintentionally destroying the city.
= Priscilla/Raciella awakens, targets only the AB's, who respond in a visual feast-for-the-eyes....the Ghosts notably stay back, but then Cassie arrives - they then go after her, but then the Awakened Beings target her, as Priscilla/Raciella is now preocupied by this "Riful" entity, whatever it is.
So the Ghosts are trying to stop Cassie from merging, and 'sort of' help the Awakened Beings fight her (though it now seems like they are trying to awaken Cassie from her stupor)...of course, even if they succeed, nothing stops her from, then consciously, fighting then. Of course, she may feel obligated, and given her personality, I can see that happening with the right twists....the idea that she stopped fighting everyone around her because they remind her of her comrades, seems like a very good and plausible idea....and we have this "Riful" being, from who knows where, fighting Priscilla.
That seems to be it, I think...I honestly needed that, given how it seems all of these things are happening at once. I'm not sure if it was always the Ghosts intentions to help Cassie then fight her, but the former at least has a much better chance of survival, which certainly changes things....I love how Tabitha, whether accidental or because she's nice, also stops herself and calls her by her name in this chapter .
Speaking of which....not that I've read this chapter in english, I have to say.....I love Octavia - maybe it's only because she reminds me of so many others (probably it), but I don't know....a blonde Riful, with an awakened form resembling Isley/Agatha in a sense? You sort of get the sense she wishes she could have been an Abyssal One XDXD -- considering how much all the Awakened Beings all look and act like previous characters, you sort of get the sense they all do. Makes me feel Octavia could have a good Lt. for Isley alongside Rigardo.
As much as I'd be entertained by seeing the Riful/Destroyer destroy Priscilla, it's not going to happen, but if Priscilla absorbed the Destroyer and got any stronger, the 0.00000001% chance that Claire has to kill Priscilla will shrink to absolute zero.
elsewhere and there you will find my response to you. Although knowing you you will avoid it since for some reason the only thread you ever visit is the chapter one and avoid other threads.

And BTW, Gernot has posted his translation yesterday. I recommend to use your shoutbox to be notified about them (or you can choose PMs). It's one of the things I love about Mangahelpers.
