D.Gray-man volume 24 “Talk Corner” part 2
QUESTION: Where did Kanda stole the clothes he wore when returning to the Order in volume 22 from?
Johnny: They’re assuming you stole them… (forced smile)
Allen: Well, this is Kanda we’re talking about. He never has money on him. So, who did you stole them from?
Tyki: I’ve been wondering this for a while, but are you and this Kanda boy on bad terms?
Wisely: Kanda Yuu didn’t steal the clothes. They were given to him.
Allen & Johnny: Huh..?
Kanda: Bastard… You peeked into my head, didn’t you!!! (unsheathes sword)
Tyki: Ah, sorry. He’s just that kind of guy.
Wisely: The demon eye is my selling point after all. I feel no need to hold back when it comes to Exorcists’ brains.
Allen & Kanda: You bastard…!
Johnny: Given to you. Don’t tell me you were financed by some woman like General Cross?
Wisely: Something like that. He even received meals off her. Must be nice to be a lady-killer~~
Allen: I’m disappointed in you, Kanda! A true man can at least earn his own meals!!!
Kanda: Hah? Who cares. I only accepted her meals and clothes because she forced them on me. When I beat the small fry in the area, that old hag…
Johnny: Old hag?
Kanda: Ugh, shut up! Who gives a damn anyway!!!
QUESTION: Allen became a clown like Mana. Did he also have Mana’s clown tools?
Tyki: Yeah, that wig. The bald one.
Allen: Please don’t call it bald. It was simply a wig. After leaving the Order, I stopped by Mother’s* house. The tools which Mana left in her care were there so I took them with me. I didn’t have a single penny on me because I was a runaway, but as a street performer I could make money anywhere. And the make-up would hide my identity. I’m a world of difference from my shameless Master and Kanda.
[*That old woman in chapter 206]
Kanda: You’ve got to take what you can when you have no money.
Allen: I’m sorry. I can’t be friends with someone who thinks like that, sorry (gives a disdainful look).
Kanda: (He ticks me off.)
Johnny: But Allen’s clown act was really good! What is your best trick?
Wisely: Acrobatics, right? He was forced into a cage with a beast once, so it seems he’s too scared to do wild-animal-tamer acts nowadays.
Allen: Please don’t answer questions by using your demon eye!!!
QUESTION: Did Allen get money through cheating at gambling when he was on the run?
Johnny: Did you!?
Allen: I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.
Kanda: Bastard, even though you were talking all high-and-mighty two seconds ago… tch.
Wisely: He’s been banned from quite a few gambling houses.
Tyki: Scary! You’re a dangerous boy, living like that at the mere age of 16~~
Allen: Please don’t underestimate the hardships of a runaway. It’s best to keep as many money-making opportunities open as possible.
Johnny: That’s no good, Allen! You’ll catch the eye of scary people like the mafia!
Allen: I’m fine. This world knows no scarier human than Master.
Tyki: What kind of image do you have of that man…
Link: You’re the main character, although barely. Keep in the mind the sensitive age that your readers are at!
Allen: (shocked) …Huh? Did you say something just now…? (nervous)
Johnny: Hn? I didn’t say anything.
Allen: I-I think I heard a voice from somewhere…
