He says that it doesnt need its needle and will be healed in 3 or 4 days as Allen explains that he was cursed by his dad a long time ago. Bookman explains what Bookmen are.

Later, Allen visits Komui who informs him that Lenalee will be fine as she was examined by Bookman and his acupuncture. Allen asks him about the Noah Clan to be answered by Lavi who was hidden amongst the books. Lavi is interrupted by Bookman and he expels both Allen and Lavi from the room. They go outside and talk about their age, Kanda and the Noah Clan.

The Akumas attack[]


Lavi saves Allen

Allen leaves to find himself in the crowd, unable to detect the akumas without his cursed eye. He is almost shot by an akuma but is saved by Lavi. Meanwhile, Bookman and Komui are talking about the Noah Clan but Bookman realizes that the guards have been killed and tell Komui to hide. Lavi easily destroys the akumas, showing his skill to recognize the akumas amongst the regular citizens. He explains to Allen that they see every human as a potential akuma and they together get rid of all the opponents.
