I don’t understand what Guren is doing and why he’s doing it, he just seems like Mahiru and Noya are controlling him- but idk so if someone can clear it up that would be great lol
Anytime! And we have to register the sheer good news this chapter was, I mean for Guren's squad to come in at that time when he intended to betray everyone, that scenario could have gone very, VERY wrong.
But they are at least safe where they are and Guren has good goals on the mind, most relieving moment ever!
Bro I was like “wait what is he doing..” when he was about to betray everyone because he fought so hard to get them back after he died.. It just didn’t make sense to betray them ya know?
No would have not made sense at all - except if it were Guren under his demonic influence where he is definitely not himself. Or if his and Mahiru's plan was so important that his friends simply paled in comparison to it.
That's where things could have gotten very chilling, and yet we can now see that even as a full demon the care for his friends comes first. Quite a powerful moment in the series with showing the inner strength of Guren, and showing what he values most and it's all the best things/people!
I feel like even white Mahiru’s control, Guren is still gonna know what he’s doing kinda like a sense and stop it because even though he doesn’t act like it- he loves his friends.
It's new territory with this Guren demon, it's like he's a complete one yet retains the deep feelings he has for his friends. Which is better than perfect since there is a super powered demon who will not be consumed, instead direct that power at whoever Guren is going for. Plus, Mahiru-no-Yo, even Noya, Guren holds his own will, not them!
So he’s almost like a seraph, can lose control but can also control his “ability” But accept he’s more of a demon. And also Shinoa?? She’s a seraph, right or was that some kind of extra. It seemed strange how she was just randomly put out as a seraph.
More like the demon counterpart to a seraph, where with seraphs you would have to work on the inner fury, with Guren that's not an issue - he is the demon so to speak, uniquely he's apparently a demon who can retain and show his human feelings and thankfully that's stopping him from going berserk.
Now as for Shinoa, she's been possessed by Shikama Doji which based on what we have been shown is a kind of mix between vampires, demons and seraphs. So Shinoa isn't a seraph, just like Yoichi when he was possessed by his demon and took on demonic traits, Shinoa has taken on Shikama Doji traits including his seraph wings.
That makes so much more sense. So do you think Shinoa knew she was possessed? And if so how do you think it came to be that way?
Haha now that's one way to open a can of worms XD the light novels detail Shinoa and her demon a bit, but it is other character views like Mahiru's which can shed some light. Then instances spread out across the manga, how much spoilers or surprises would you like? The other area is blog posts where you are welcome to come across quite a mind altering theory on Shinoa and Shikama Doji XD
It's all what Chapter 83 appears set on aiming for now namely taking down the first, so by all means come across the theories whilst they still are theories!
What do you think?
