Allen is so different to the kid from back then.
I'm starting to doubt they're the same person.

And yet, more happened than has happened in the past few chapters. Sad, huh?

That's 100% on Cross. From what we saw before (if I recall correctly, it's been a while), he wasn't TOO different when Cross found him from now other than being broken from Mana's "death" and subsequent Akuma'ization.

Speaking of Mana's death, this makes that whole thing even weirder. So now Allen knows who the Earl is, and yet he still makes the deal? And that's not even getting into the whole "who the hell did he actually turn into an Akuma?" thing.

We should find out soon enough, unless Hoshino is planning to spend a lot of time on Mana and Allen's relationship. This flashback isn't that badly paced, it's just that publication is really slow. But I'm grateful we're at least getting chapters on a regular schedule. Better than being completely in the dark like with HxH.

Just noticed a couple more chapters got translated. I thought this flashback was supposed to just be a "prequel" to what we already knew, and the only question was who/what Allen brought back via the Earl that caused his curse.

But now... his entire freaking backstory's been retconned and nothing we knew prior to Cross is true.

That entire flashback feels so pointless. The only interesting part has been the talk between Cross and Road.

Worse, Allen awakening his innocence for the first time to kill akuma "Mana" has been retconed and that takes away from the story.

This should seriously be like 50+ pages for each chapter...since we only get 4chapters per year. I would gladly sacrafice art over more pages.

Becouse of such long ass waiting the story doesnt move foward at all...at this pace Hoshino might die of old age or something. When was the last time when we saw Lenalee or Levi...how many years has it been by now.

I'll call it Aku-Mana from now on.

I'm still trying to figure out what the hell happens to make Red into Allen.

Best I can guess, this little outburst awakens The Earl, but not before Mana slips away to keep Red from getting killed. Apothostasis or whatever its name is shows up and mind melds Red to give him a sympathetic backstory, a kinder demeanor, and a reason to join the Order.

The eye is still what gets me. Is that supposed to just be a representation of Nea?

Plot twist: Red becomes the Earl. Mana becomes Allen. At this point and for all I remember/understand, that might as well happen.

That would make absolutely no sense.

APOCRYPHOS

GDI! He stole the evil antagonist role from the Noah family.

A heartwarming moment met a sudden end.

So the story of Allen killing Akuma Mana has been retconned... I feel like the author is making a mess.

That was retconned literally the second they revealed that Mana and the Earl were the same person like 3 years ago.

Allen killing Akumana will probably turn out to be a fake memory implanted by Apocryphos to give him a reason to want to kill the Earl. Not sure about the eye though.

That's my suspicion. I think the eye will be Nea's influence to try to make him sympathize with the Akuma, and thus estrange him from the Order.

You're forgetting that there is a point where Red becomes "Allen" totally changing his character.
