Saying Goodbye to Allen Walker - Red and Mana ⑥ (A.Wに別れを告げる・赤腕とマナ⑥, A.W. (Aren Wōkā) ni wakare o tsugeru ・ Akaude to Mana ⑥) is Chapter 242 of D.Gray-man.


A seventeen year old Mana Walker cries, tears streaming down his left cheek. His eyes are closed as a light emanates from his forehead.


Apocryphos continues to control Red, with the intention of destroying Mana. Despite Red's pain and despair at the memories of Allen's death, Mana manages to get through to him.

He thanks Red for loving Allen, and encourages him not to grieve anymore, as grief will bring forth the Millennium Earl. With this, Mana's mind shatters and he loses consciousness.


Old memories run through Mana's mind as he continues to scream in pain. In these memories, a young, seventeen year old Mana runs up to Nea D. Campbell, who is standing under Cornelia with Timcanpy. Mana cries tears of relief upon seeing him, and tells Nea he missed him.[1] With a gentle, content smile Nea turns to Mana and tells him to keep walking, but at this moment the memories shatter.[2]

Meanwhile, Apocryphos continues to order Red to destroy Mana, the Millennium Earl.[3] Tears run down Red's cheeks as an image of Apocryphos materialises behind him, grabbing him. Red screams.[4] He wonders if the torture would stop if he were to destroy Mana, whose form has taken on a horrific appearance.[5] As Mana's disfigured form opens its mouth, Red sees the image of Allen. This fuels Red's pain and anger further. He keeps his grip on Mana's face as he demands that Allen be returned to him.[6]

Apocryphos continues his ruthless control over a sobbing and screaming Red. Memories of his hug with Allen run through Red's mind, while memories of Nea run through Mana's.[7] At that moment, Mana takes Red's face into his hands and thanks him for loving Allen. He smiles gently and tells Red he will see Allen again.[8] When it seems Red is coming to his senses, Mana tells him not to grieve anymore, as grief will bring forth the Millennium Earl. With that, Mana's mind shatters and he loses consciousness.[9]
