Only problem....Mana was Mana when he died bc you can only call back the soul of someone that actually died, If Neah was pretending to be Mana the whole time he was with Allen then Neah would have died and Allen yelling out MANA to become an akuma would not have worked.
seriously kanda for genral
i think it is too early
making Kanda a general is the best/smartest thing thing Tiedoll has ever done xD!!!
-Past!Allen probably didn't have his Innocence, Neah was to suprised to see CC. Maybe (Past!)Allen has his own power?
In my view of things Kanda could have gone rogue exorcist supporting Allen from the shadows. The entire thing about fallen what ive heard before seems aimless as well because in that sense he'd have turned fallen already due to his not supporting the Order and aiding a renegade. Same for Allen. So becoming a fallen is out of the question.
Either way i see no direct reason why he would be a general, even Allen hit the barrier before and didn't get a invite Also if taking into account that Yeagar already died halfway the story they are now 2 generals short. So saying hes to replace Cross where is Yeagar's replacement then?

Allen did not become a general due to the fact that he was suspected of having relations to the 14th. What was more was his attempt to save Suman, which only served to enhance the Order's mistrust, because Suman was a suspected and confirmed traitor.
The rogue assistant role is already occupied by Link. Having another character doing the same thing in the same way would only make Kanda's character even more redundant and pointless as his earlier days in the series, where his only significance was that he killed Skin Bolic. This would be counterproductive rendering all the development he's gotten from Alma arc up to this point moot. Kanda's decission to become a general further cemented his character in the series because not only has it opened doors for his character, but it was also a decision that was done out of practicality, inspired solely by the immediate situation at hand. Added to that, considering the danger of becoming a fallen, how long do you really think he could continue being this "rogue exorcist" you speak of. It was only natural for him to start playing his cards much more cunningly.
As for Kanda becoming a fallen already, bear in mind that Allen still remains at best half exorcist. Nea hasn't exactly fully taken over as yet. Also bear in mind that considering that we are still unsure of the full nature of the relationship between Allen's innocence and Nea.

As for his development, he was developing to become a closer friend to Allen, also threatening Link. Yet Hoshino took a totally different route. And then you say he needed it to be a general. So as to discuss this discussion about this chapter. I ask why would he need it.
To gain the orders trust or temporary tolerance is not that relevant. We see Tiedol coming out of the blue to his position, after he got canned in a 1 on 1 with the Apo. Its a little bit out of nowhere for me.
Also we dont really have a road to this point, Allen already broke the barrier before and Lenalee's innocence evolved prior to his as well. So why would he be a general?
The only argument I could see you having is that it was never really confirmed before- hand that Kanda surpassed the critical mark. Whilst this is true, ask yourself, "How does the only current exorcist to kill a noah and gut a Level 4 in one blow not worthy of being of general status?

As for Allen i didnt say he should be general just that the critical marker isnt all that much, and Lenalees innocence developed before him to Crystal.
What id like to discuss is why he gets this promotion and if there is any road leading to it.
Another thing i support the manga got all 23 so far released volumes ^^ so i can complain a little bit on the plot side since i dont read for free
I try to read with a smile and discuss as well with a smile.
I wasn't talking about screen time or appeal towards the fandom. When I said appearance's sake, I meant it in terms of how Kanda is conceived by the higher ups in the order. Ofcoarce, there's is no way for the Order to fully trust him, especially for the fact that he refuses to disclose the location of Alma Karma. But, with a motto like "find Allen kill the 14th", they should be more than capable to find use for one of their best exorcists. I don't think he would fade away without being a general but being a general has a lot more anchorage and logic to it than just being a blatant rogue exorcists as you had recommended. Again, because its smarter
and given the current scenario I see it working much better for a longer time.
I am not Hoshino so I don't know if him becoming a general will truly lead to greater things. That's what I'm hoping though. Personally I hope at one point or the next that Hoshino uses Kanda to allow us to see Black Order Central (looooooooong overdue). I think its about time that we flesh out some of the political core that makes up the black order. Perhaps that can even be a concentration point after Bookman arc.
