Another chapter was released in late 2012, after which Hoshino went on yet another hiatus due to illness, and the latest chapters were compiled into Volume 24.

* AdaptationalJerkass: [[TricksterMentor Cross Marian]] Suffered this in the anime. Manga-wise he was a victim of JerkassFacade at best, or JerkWithAHeartOfGold at worst. Anime-wise however, he's a complete JerkAss. Episode 27: My Master, General Cross is infamous for the villainization of Cross' character -when Allen begins to tell Lenalee tales of how horrible his master is, so she'll know what to expect when they find him. The includes things from Cross that actually contradicted his manga characterization and WordOfGod.

* JerkAssFacade: General Cross. He's either this or a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
** This is a tricky one for Cross. He has his times where he seems like a total JerkAss. But Hoshino has given many hints in the manga that Cross is a caring person. Anita, one of his lovers hates mean people -backed by having Mahoja as a bouncer for her brothel. But she was totally in love with Cross and died looking for him, and was moved to tears to find out he was alive. She says her mother loved him as well, and that's why she became a supporter of The Order. WordOfGod also states that Cross tried not to empathize with Allen, and didn't want to get close to him. So, Cross had to actually expend effort to push Allen away and not get close to him. Thus, him loving Allen was always a risk. In chapter 206, he drinks and tells Mother he doesn't care about Allen at all. But prior to that, Cross was sitting by Allen's bed, staring at him with a sad expression on his face. Didn't seem like the actions of a man that didn't care. Mother then later calls him out, by thinking that he really did love Allen, given the expression on Allen's face when he came back.
** He also hugs Allen in chapter 167, thinking to himself he can't laugh at Tiedoll anymore. So, seems he made fun of Tiedoll's hyper sensitivity, and thus he's prone to trying to act or be more macho so people don't take him for a crybaby, or being soft. But he has no problem showing softness toward women. So, it exists, could be he just doesn't show it around men.
** Recent chapter 222 pretty much hammers in the fact that Cross was lying about not caring about Allen in 206. [[spoiler: Cross appears to speak with Allen who is dormant in Nea's subconscious where he will eventually disappear. He thanks Allen for being the host, and tells him that he has never wished for his destruction. He then tries to get Allen to rest and not fight against Nea because it would cause him more suffering. He offers to stay there with Allen in case he was scared.]]

* HarmfulHealing: Miranda Lotto's Innocence functions something like this. She doesn't so much heal injuries as temporarily take them away, and once her Innocence is deactivated they all come flooding back at once (which has, on one occasion, [[DeadManWalking led to characters taking fatal injuries and fighting on, only to have to face their death at the end of the fight anyway.]])

By November 2014, Hoshino showed signs of having healed enough to draw again, and finally the manga resumed serialization on July 17, 2015 in Jump SQ Crown. The catch? It is now a quarterly release instead of monthly, meaning only 4 chapters a year. In part because of all these hiatuses and magazine changes, the tone, direction and artstyle of the series changed several times, to the point the early volumes and the latest ones might almost seem like a different series.

** This is thoroughly subverted during the Phantom Thief arc. Sure, the Phantom Thief's Innocence makes him quite a challenge for the Exorcists, but it's only really useful again Level 1 Akuma, and later in the arc, against Level 2 Akuma as well. When he tries to use it against a Level 3, the Innocence just bounces off and outright tells him it's not strong enough to take over a Level 3 yet. Even during the Alma Karma arc, where Level 3s and 4s make up the bulk of the Earl's army, he is still only able to fight Level 2s or weaker.



** In one of the first chapters, Allen does this for a kid.

** Allen, whenever [[spoiler:the 14th takes over]], is an expert at these. It doesn't look so different from Allen's normal face. It's just a ''really'' unsettling sight.

** This might actually be a case of ShownTheirWork, since this can occur in RealLife. It is known as the Marie Antoinette Syndrome. Usually though [[HeGotBetter it's only temporary]].
