The destruction of the Black Order is such a horrible arc seriously
The Tapp thing just happened and I want to fucking cry, none of them deserved that, and the horror in Johnny’s, Bak’s and Reever’s eyes is just the worst.
We took time with those people. The scientific Division is Family. They are always there, caring and loving, they are the main source of support for all of our characters. They were pointed out multiple times as the people mataining the “safe zone” of the exorcists. They are all loving and they go the extra miles so the exorcists are not considered weapons, but actual human beings. They care to no end, and in the situation Allen and even Lenalee’s being faced to her abuser are right now, the Scientific Division is there to support. It’s Bak and Johnny yelling at who wants to hear it that Allen is a good guy. It’s Reever and Komui who go the extra miles to protect Lenalee.
And this is all of them we see suffer during that arc. Those who are loosing the ones they cared about. Those who are helpless in a situation of life and death with no certainty of being saved.
The exorcists are being faced with loosing their safe zone, those who had been like family, those who had always supported them. And this “safe zone” is itself suffering with little to no hope for them.
This is such a horrible setting to be faced to halfway through the manga, really
