Raw is out: http://www.mangaumaru.com/archives/407460
Fraudrin is effective as fuck.
>Got nuked by Mel which destroyed Danafor.He survived
>Took control of Liones
>Punk'd out their strongest knight and the sins
>Played the whole country for fools for 10 years
>Using Hendricksen as scapegoat he successfully faked his own (Well Dreyfus') death and resurrected the demons.
Looks like Dreyfus kept his spaghetti together and initially resisted Fraudrin attempt to posses him. Unfortunately he allowed himself to be corrupted in order to save the vulnerable Hendrickson
So is our Golden Week basically next week in terms of NnT?
Well to be honest it seems like he nuked Fraudrin really good and without outside help he won't be able to do shit.
Might be a matter of them possessing people, like Fraudrin? In Galan's case, I suspect that he's inhabiting a suit of armor. I'm guessing when he goes all out, it would be after his body is broken and he's released.
>Tentacle loli is actually just the tentacle, the loli is just someone the tentacle possessed
Keikaku doori villains are the most fucking scary.
Just to think this guy was possessing a body of holy knight Mel knew and saw every fucking day and trolled his shit out in Danafor as well.
Spagetti is a nice guy, I hope he get purify and get to go on happy adventure with Hendy again.
Or maybe purify and die alongside Hendy after taking down atleast one of the Commandment.
Couldn't Hendricksen use purify behind Fraulin's back when he had the chance? Assuming this is a weaken demon and purify works like cake on dark creatures. And why was he surprised to know spagetti was possessed when he walked out of the whole knowing that?
>Fraudrin has recovered some or all of his magical power
>Expelled from Dreyfus' body through a combination of Purge and Break
Well, Hendricksen isn't strong enough to resist Fraudrin's possession. So maybe he's not strong enough to resist being possessed.
I'm starting to have the feeling Fraudrin can possess more than one person. Because otherwise I still see no legit way for how he could manipulate Hendy AND Dreyfus to that extend.
Some of their talks in the past chapters were really confusing. One time they were going along in their plan, at other times they were openly at each other's throat. And I doubt all of that was just acting for the public.
The Edinburgh incident happened 12 years ago, so the possession happened 2 years after.
>Galan talks shit when he encounters Mel next time
>Mel goes full demon mode on his ass
Well, Galan only talked down towards Meliodas since the latter was pretty weak even after going all out with desperation. It doesn't seem like he'll follow that trope you're describing.
It's pretty clear that Merlin stole something that allowed Mel to use his full power. So he tried to go as high as he could in terms of demon mode, but the result was really pathetic.
The worst thing is, Merlin is turned to stone so he surely won't get what she stole from him back for quite some time.
My internet fuckekd up. And that's it. Guess we'll get Meliodas's Gaiden next.
>Fraudrin has recovered some or all of his magical power
>Expelled from Dreyfus' body through a combination of Purge and Break
That could be pretty cool, would be even more fun if the three stooges join in on the battle aswell.
inb4 Spagetti Senior get melted again.
Well no wonder Mel nuked the entire country to fucks just to murder this guy.
Also is it just me, or Fraudrin only survived by possessing some other demon or at least survived body part of a demon? It's clear he was unable to leave the hole Mel left him in with his own power.
Because Meliodas' power was just beginning to rise. This is a different matter.
As far as we know, the power Meliodas displayed when he desperately tried to defeat Galan is the current maximum output he can unleash. We don't know the reasons why he's weaker. It could be that he's restraining himself to the absolute limit of what he's able to control, or maybe it has something to do with what Merlin took from him. But whatever the case may be, he's not willing or able to go beyond the current limit he's shown us.
I really thought it would be a case of poor Liz getting caught in the crossfire of some demon or shit. This, though, is much more painful for Mel. Now I wonder if Fraudrin targeted Liz because she was Mel's lover or because he recognized her from 3000 years ago or something along those lines.
Holy shit this chapter.
Fraudrin is the scariest keikaku doori villain i've seen in years.
And he's not even the top ranked among ten commandments, it seems, as his demon seal design is more simplistic than that of three demon brothers.
The more this manga goes, the more i understand how Nakaba loves this setting and his own characters. Everyone gets a spotlight, he doesn't forget about his characters. This was the same in KB where he even gave a spotlight to that wolf guy who was thrown from the story completely and it looked absolutely awesome.
Hope that Dreyfus will bring Fraudrin down along with Hendy in the end.
>40 years old virgin
I will not believe that he wasn't molesting apprentices after turning them into a new generation.
I want to hug shota Hendy and tell him everything will be alright.
I guess Hendricksen's job of guarding graves also explains his necromancy skills.
I guess this doublespread with the crisscrossing stars is also confirmed now to have included the druid sites.Very interesting if that really was Merlin there.
"Every night, I would keep a watchful eye so that the dead bodies wouldn't be filled with abominable souls and come back to life.I'd keep doing it until the skeleton was all that was left.I hated doing that, I wanted to get away from the dead bodies as soon as possible."
Remember how Dreyfus said that ones power relates to will, experiences and believes?
He probably obtained Acid cause of this mindset.
This chap brought about the question of...<How do people AWAKEN magic?>
And how come Hendy didn't use Purge? After last chap I thought for sure he'd have it by then since he'd ofc learn it as a druid. That was really weird. There has to be some reason he didn't use it at the time.
Hope we're gonna be getting the full history of what happened with Mel 16 years ago
Well it seems like Mel wrecked Fraudrin really good, but man, demons have some really fucking surprising resilience.
Or Fraudrin jumped into someone's half-dead body prior to getting annihilated by Mel.
So it seems that hendrickson couldn't use urger ten years ago. this means that there is a tiny possibility that he just learned it right after getting trown away by the demons
we are only at 88 posts retard
Remember people, how Dreyfus/Fraudrin gravely injured Elizabeth?
Now we know Fraudrin killed Liz.
This dude was close to turning Liones into a second Danafor.
Or perhaps, that's what he intended?
Imagine Mel wrecking that country too while Fraudrin goes on to resurrect the demons.
Sins and the Holy Knights all might have died due to Meliodas possibly losing himself again.
That or he couldn't use it on himself because of Fraudrin's influence.
It's also interesting that there are more apostles around, even if not many.
I'm hoping for a cool priest to show up soon.
I think this is why Merlin knocked him out ten years ago. She simply was scared of him and feared that he will turn Lioness into a second Danafor if he will learn about Fraudrin.
It's funny that Dreyfus seems to have one of the best powers in the entire setting.
>insane damage from straightforward attacks, can fucking toy with a member of Sins and launch her into the air
>cannot be poisoned or burned as long as his will is not crushed
>cannot be mind controlled either unless he accepts the mind control deliberately
Fraudrin does know what happens if Mel goes mad.
Wait, so THAT is why Fraudrin faked Dreyfus' death!
He injured Elizabeth, then got the fuck out cause in case she dies Mel would go batshit again and potentially nuke Liones!
Fraudrin had all he needed for the demons too.
Destroying Liones would have obliterated nearly everyone who can put up a fight against them too.
Oh, fucking hell.
I wonder what will happen when Mel will return his full power and learn everything about Fraudrin.
It will probably be even more painful for a poor keikaku doori demon than during their last confrontation. Especially if Hendy will find a way to expel the demon from the body of Dreyfus.
Fraudrin says it himself. Hendrickson simply couldn't use Purge. He awakened Acid because it reflected his personal desires.
Purge might be the kind of power that awakens in the priest caste of the Druid clan. If so, it might require a more "heavenly" state of mind.
I'll go ahead and dump the chapter here.
In his full demonic mode? He might be the strongest or one of the strongest demons probably. Remember the picture of him standing over the Danafor hole? He was unharmed. Fraudrin barely survived and was in such a pathetic state he couldn't even move for 6 years. And Fraudrin is possibly 26k+ in terms of power level.
Hendy sure is
Page in between these two is here
>but Griamore will cry buckets and wet himself
Was anyone else hit hard by the reveal of how virtuous Dreyfus really was?
And to think the hole is a size of an entire kingdom.
Oh, and I'm suddenly bugged by the previous page saying
>and the friends
Wonder how they missed that during the QC.
So yeah, Hendrickson was under Fraudrin's spell the entire time. It probably acted similarly to Ruin's power and covered up any dissonance in reasoning between the victim's memories/cognition and what the caster wants the victim to feel. So the mystery's been cleared up, for anyone who was puzzling over it.
Spirit targeting powers are so tricky.
And that's it.
Next chapter, we're back with Meliodas' group again. Looking forward to that.
Okay, if Fraudrin had also Hendry under his control more or less, why Hendry and Dreyfus acted like enemies when they were alone? I understand acting like enemies when there's more people to fool everyone but why when they're alone?
His power IS directly linked with his willpower. Or rather, all powers are, to some extent (when King was shaken up by his encounter with Helbram at Byzel, his efficiency was greatly reduced). But his and Griamore's seem especially dependent on their mental state.
fraudrin probably let dreyfus take the lead of their body when there wasn't something sepcific he had to do and because dreyfus was mindfucked he didn't know shit and thought that hendy is the bad one while hendy was probably just fed up with that nigga's split personality shit
Need to know basis. Gowther can read minds, after all. Ruin is a Holy Knight with a mind/spirit power, so who knows how many others are there? There's a chance that one of them might be able to retrieve information from their minds.
Fraudrin seemed to be keeping tabs over Dreyfus' memories too when Gowther invaded it. I wouldn't be surprised if Fraudrin even unleashed some of his demonic power during the fight against Zaratras, if he's really on the level of the Sins.
Gee Fraudrin, that was a totally smart move, good work.
>yfw fraudrin is actually a good guy who wanted to save the world from Meliodas Uchiha who would destroy it, when something really sad happened, because his love is just too much, so fraudrin killed his waifu before his love was fully developed
Maybe she's more important in the fight against the Demon Clan than you would think. Gotta get your priorities straight; can't have a competent adult version of the Goddess Clan's Apostle around when the Demon Clan gets out again.
>im sure this was dreyfus powered by freudin
That's when the mark is out. Otherwise, he's just like Hendrickson, who was at normal strength until he unleashed his Red Demon mark. Characters can actually sense their strength being boosted with a "dark power".
Mel's rage is no joke. He tore Fraudrin's shithole apart and he was probably on a level of Galan. Looks like he also did it without any visible injuries.
So Hendricksen was under the influence of Fraudrin for the whole series? What was the deal with his and Dreyfus's conflict then? And if Hendricksen couldn't use Purge when he was first was turned bad by Fraudrin, when did he learn?
Probably Fraudrin decided at some point to control Dreyfus subconsciously (notice he hasn't got the mark under the eye), which could be why Gowther's Nightmare affected Dreyfus, and then had Fraudrin appear.
Well, but what is the reason behind the nuke? Because if Meliodas really killed everyone along with Fraudin lost in his rage just because, that would be really, really fucked, even more because he failed.
It only makes sense if a part of Fraudrin lingered in Hendy to manipulate him subconsciously into doing shit. Unless he somehow forgot about the events of this chapter, which is possible after Fraudrin left him, but seems unlikely because of this page: >>124665590.
What the hell was Dreyfus doing then? If he knew about the demon inside of himself, then shouldn't he have done something about it? And if he didn't know, then how did he know about himself killing Zaratras and justify that to himself?
his mind set could have been irrational along the lines
>Why did I do that? I dont why I did but I do know I did it
If the demon makes him have no memory of being possessed then he would have no reason to doubt it was his actions.
So, how did freudin Red demon and Ash demon survived/ escaped?
Red demon burned the fairy forest 20 years ago
Freudin fucked up with Meliodas 16 years ago
and at some in between point someone killed the Ash Demon
maybe the god clan is the Full Evil section that wanted a monopoly of magic
would explain why the demons were shocked about the lack of magic after they were sealed for so long
>Goddesses bring Escanor into the world to protect as their champion
>Bringing that much energy together requires an equal amount of demonic energy to be released from the seal
I would really doubt that, theres no way they can be hiding for thousands of years and then suddenly run into mel and the fairy forest all at once. I'll revise my guess, maybe an off shoot of the druid clan defected to the demon side, took a goddess apostle with them and weakened the seal themselves by killing her. This might explain why the last liz died since he killed her to get goddess blood (maybe this passes on with reincarnation).
they hid till they found out the apostole of the goddess in this case liz.
the attack on fairy forest was get extra power.
then it failed and 4 years later decided to go head on.
they went into hide cause if they tried something to soon, the other clans will just fuck em up, it was 3 demons vs 4 clans
I wonder about that. So far, everyone with druid blood has the same hair color and the same eye color but Liz was a redhair I think.
Fraudrin's control over Hendrickson was more on the level of suggestion than full possession. It wasn't nearly as direct as what Dreyfus was exposed to, and I doubt Fraudrin had to control Dreyfus at 100% all the time anyway. Their arguments are probably their true personalities pushing through a bit, where they aren't really comfortable with what they were doing.
As for Purge, if you chalk it up to powers coming from personality and desire, Hendrickson is a druid who just got through being controlled into damning the world and his mind is fully focused on repent. I'd say that's a good recipe for holy powers to shine through.
What do you mean with "abandon"?
Hen was under Frauds influence and thought it was his own idea to resurrect the demons. The holy war thing was his rationalization of his (suggested or implanted) goal. He released the demons, got purged by the divine trap lock and realized what a deluded ass he was the whole time.
I was wondering if the abilities if NnT are based on desire/abilities/personality but when I see some characters it seems that it could also be genetic or inherited.
Ban is a thief so his snatch abilities were born from his desire to steal(I'm assuming).
Hendy hated the dead bodies so his ability was born from his desire to purge the bodies of flesh.
Giants are known for manipulating the earth. Im assuming this ability is inherited genetically or taught.
Looking at fairies it seem they all mostly have some kinetic abilities and Harlequinn, being the king, inherited the ability to utilize the sacred tree.
The only reason I'm thinking of this is due to the quirks in hero academy. I know it really doesn't make a difference but its interesting to think about how Arthur might develop his powers or how he inherited them.
Haven't these knights watched any horror sci-fi movies?
Wasn't the common sense in their heads screaming to not go down that hole?
Hell, back in ancient civilization times, human miners bought a small cage filled with birds while going down deep into the earth as a prototype warning device that oxygen was running low or they were breathing in too much odorless deadly gas in high concentrations.
