199 - "LITTLE GOODBYE"

p01
- *double double toil and trouble fire burn and cauldron [/bricked]*
- (does this mean that Alma is transgender?)

02
- molokidan again.

03-04
- so Kanda actually listened to Allen's last words of 'what is this i don't even'?  never seen him ask so many damn questions.
- and you really think they're going to hear and/or listen to you, Bak.  I mean, I love you man, but...really?  are they even in the same general area?
- (edge of what indignation?)
- (also, I think I may have been right--the 'heart' ball and the center of the self-destruct are supposed to be the same, but she accidentally drew them separate)

05
- has he become inured to the self-destruction and/or erasure of spirits, then?  his first reaction was not nearly so nonchalant.  (why didn't he try to do anything to stop it?  where's that busybody protagonist we all know and exasperatedly love?)
- (btw, where's Tokusathing in all this? we haven't heard from him/it/them in a while.)

06
- awww, Zuu's all crying and stuff.
- Wisely's purty again, yay~
- *flashback to umpteen chapters ago when Tokusa kneed Our Hero in the face*
- (if this means Kanda never shows up again in the manga, I will be sad.)

07
- (still struggling to keep it back)
- okay, congratulations, you've pissed me off, WHO THE HELL JUST SAID THAT.  "those two..." the damn directional origin points away from the three main characters in this battle so who the fuck?  scientist? Noah?  *froths at mouth*
- second readthrough and I still don't know who the fuck said that.  I call foul.

08
- ah, there goes the hair.  now we know is srs battel.
- *crumble crumble* *wants to make bad cookie joke, but ashes are not delicious*

09
- Allen: *runs towards steaming corpse* *part of this complete breakfast*
- Noah: *provide snarky narrative*
- "even he, who prided himself on excelling within the church"
- (and if you believe that, I've got another bridge to sell you, and by the way how's that first one working out for ya?)

10
- awww.  I can hear the fangirls now, drafting manifesti about how this proves their Everlasting Wuv.
- if Allen's loltears have some sort of magical resurrecting effect, I'm'a shoot something.  (he has cried over so many not-dead people in this story arc it's getting ridiculous.)
- by the way: how is he not bleeding out?  does the alteration the parasitic Innocence effects on his cells increase clotting rate or what?  (magical Noah healing powers?  shounen protagonist's contractual immortality?) (also, dude, no way did Kanda not hit the liver or a kidney or something.  I call vital-spot shenanigans.)
- (bare-bones Mugen languishing off to the side, still in equipment form)
- those pieces of people look crunchy.  does this make me a terrible person?

11
- *snrk* o-tay, now Allen's taking on the mantle of Exposition Queen.  "in case you weren't paying attention, here's a summary for you!"
- (is that supposed to be like an artificial heart with trailing blood vessels or something?)
- (so she was wearing an Exorcist's uniform, with Exorcist buttons?)
- "what's going to happen to Kanda" um, Allen, dude, I think you're supposed to think he's already dead.  or are you concerned about the ~soul~?  (kid is slow on the uptake.  but that's okay, most shounen protags are.)

12
- tinyface~ ♥
- THAT IS WHAT KANDA'S HAIR IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE.  take notes, kids, this will be on the exam.
- (not purple)
- "...to Kanda's feelings" uh, he's supposed to be dead.  dead people don't have feelings unless they've been dragged back from beyond to become an Akuma.  were you dropped on your head as a child?

13
- AND THEY CONTINUE TO CHAT FROM BEYOND thank you, cleveland, and good night.  my work here is done, it's like Naruto chapter 347, there is nothing I can do to make this more ridiculous, just shut the lights off in the office and head home early.
- Alma sprouts from the ground?  what is this I don't even.  (just goes to show how shitty he is at being an Akuma, if he can't even self-destruct right)

14
- "foreeeeever"  XDDDDD  I can just hear the sing-songy voice used to say that.  "joooin uuuuus..."
- and while flesh and vitreous fluid turn to ash and/or stone, the hair is still lush and lustrous.  must be the Herbal Essences.
- I, um.  I have no words.
- (I think I may repress the memory of the cheesiness of this chapter so as to protect mine sanity)

15
- OH MY GOD JUST DIE ALREADY GET IT OVER WITH SO I CAN WIPE THIS FROM MY MIND WITH SWEET SWEET BRAIN BLEACH
- (ACTUALLY.  this entire chapter makes sense if Hoshino was having extreme difficulty drawing/writing it, and was struggling to get one page out at a time.  explains why things keep doubling back on themselves and weaving all over the place like a dungbeetle three sheets to the wind.)

16
- aaand now Allen's gonna put them next to each other because he's a soft-hearted idiot.  that's.  um.  I guess better than watching the shredded torso crawling around in the rubble blindly looking for the body of its lolsoulmaet...
- "you're so nice..."  yes, and sometimes even I want to shoot him for it.  (stop making me sympathise with Chaozii, dammit)
- (also, Allen's right shoulder in panel 2 is out of joint)
- (please tell me that sfx is one of the Noah coming down and putting all three of them out of their damn misery)

17
- um.  whut?
- (lol his ribs dissociating row by row)
- IF HE BECOMES AN EMO STATUE I REALLY WILL STAB SOMETHING
- (man you could cut glass with those eyelashes of his)

18
- wtf on toast.
- (there's that cowl.  took you long enough, Crown.)
- fly free, little fairy/arm/blob/intestinal thing!

19
- pfffffahahahahaha *dies*
- *still dying*  it's like mad libs.  "bean sprouts..."  ...are delicious!  ...are part of this complete breakfast!  ...actually give me indigestion, if you must know!  ...grow into BEAN PLANTS!  *shock and awe*
- *omnomnomtummy*
- (bounce away like a bubble and disappeeear  ...oooh, like a balloon?)
- TEAM ROCKET'S BLASTING OFF AGAAAA... *ping*

20
- o snap.  (lasso that Earl, Allen!  *suddenly has mental image of Earl being bucking bronco at rodeo*  *the goggles, they do nothing*)
- (the horns are I think much tinier than they were in ZONE.)

21
- aaand back to the blue sky metaphor.  I see your continuity nod bookend and raise you mild interest.
- holy fuck I was right, Allen really did brainwash him into using the power of love to save the day.  I underestimated you, Hoshino.  Touché.

22
- I will not make a Spiderman and Mary Jane reference I will not make a Spiderman and Mary Jane reference I...fuck.
- XDDD;;;;;;;;
- fffff WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DAMSELS IN THIS STORY ARC.  (also, I see Kanda resprouted his legs, that bodes well for, well, walking)
- (aw, look, even Road's helping.  *squishes*)

23
- all right, the dialogue on this page plus the Staples "Ooh/Aah!" ad up top is making me think terrible terrible thoughts.  lord knows we don't need any more of those.
- that's right, save the day with the ~POWAAA OF LOOOOOVE~
- (dude, don't you at least want to take your sword?  it's, um, kind of useful.)
- aaaaah fuck it looks like Kanda's seal is starting to do the same thing Alma's did when it started making his hair fall out.  NUUUUU~
- (also okay I know I've been complaining about a lot of things lately but one more thing: remember how Allen's claw used to be all spidery and cool?  now it's big and cartoony.  actually, a lot of things are cartoony, but that's beside the point.  )
- (kneecap~ ♥)

24
- "Renny-san told me" yeah, when?  one of the previous chapters?
- *readies earplugs in anticipation of the fangirlish squeeing*
- (apparently Kanda's hatred for Allen's maddening insistence on everyone surviving magically disappears when it goes in his favour)

25-26
- okay whut.  all this reaching, man, she's been getting into too much Renaissance art.  (what was it, Michelangelo?)
- not to mention the girlish blushing from Allen every time Kanda is involved.  seriously, is 199 going to be D.Gray's 347 for trolling the fandom?  ("This just in: Kanda calls Allen by name and smiles and Allen blushes!  Butwaitthere'smore--Kanda's eloping to Mateel with Akuma Alma!  Butwaitthere'smore--Alma just so happens to be the confusingly transgendered version of the Lotus Lady who is Kanda's ~canonical~ One True Love!  Bet you hate that.  Clean the diet coke off your computer monitors, Yullen fangirls, because there's more to come.  Details at eleven.")

27
- aaand now that genderbending slash is officially canon...
- *squelches comment on the straightening iron working on his hair but not his sexuality*
- (have I mentioned my manga is heterosexual today?)

28
- (good luck avoiding the church in Italy.  not to mention...dude, though, isn't he still technically an Akuma?  then doesn't that mean the Earl has access to him wherever?  *that came out wrong...or maybe it's just my filthy, filthy ears*)

29
- I love how blithely he's ignoring the Earl.  who is still lassoed in Clown Belt, by the way.  go Allen.

30
- lolquestionmark

31
- and Alma is, yet again, reduced to a long-armed torso.  um.  yeah, you do that, Hoshino.  I'll be over here.
- (dunno if I'll ever get used to this suddenly emotional--smiling! crying! being affectionate!--version of Kanda.  thankfully, at least, these things are less traumatising the second time around.
- "adara"?
- (hopefully they aren't a-splatted the second they wind up in the underground city.  is she intentionally drawing parallels to Lala and Guzol?  I suppose it would make sense if this really is the end of Kanda's character arc--back to the beginning, heavily wounded, shirtless, hair down, Allen's "I want to be a destroyer who saves"...)

32
- okay, I'm officially writing off this entire chapter as goofy fanfic.  THE GRANDSTANDING IS MY BREAKING POINT, OKAY.
- XDDDDD;;;
- (um also his hair.  what?)
- poor Lvellie.  his puff pastry of treason--his treason éclair, if you will--is crazier than he could have possibly imagined.  defending Akuma, crying all the time, needing motivational speeches from a girl who spends most of her time as a wall in China, turning Noah and back again faster than you can say "delicious concoction of ganache and buttercream," talking to corpses for fun and profit, lassoing the goddamn Earl for leverage in chasing a fairy balloon that just wants to be freeeee, actively aiding and abetting a deserter by illegally making and breaking an Ark door, being jailbait for at least three of the Noah (if not all fourteen), refusing to get down to business and just kill things as God intended, AND now on top of all that he's flouncing around like the diva his womanising alcoholic of a master taught him to be and declaring ~treasonous treason~ in defense of the deserter and his decidedly unCatholic Akuma/clone/fairy/trannie/bff/fiancée.

this is going to take so much paperwork to try and explain to his superiors.
