Was there any indication for the electricity trap thing to exist and work?

We were never given their full plan from the start, (though we did get that flashback of Emma thinking "something" up) only a TLDR, nor did they state that it was a hopeless situation and then they were miraculously saved.

 

It's more like hiding plot points from the reader to heighten tension.

Chapter 88

 

Again, I like the colour spread, between the film reels and Emma in front in her Grace Field attire, it really gives the usual anachronism that Posuka's artstyle usually carries

 

---

 

For something improvised, that shock trap was great.

Especially coming from kids who have at most read of, but not witnessed, the concept of electrocution

 

Well then, all 5 special bullets have been used, and served their purpose. Rifles shall be preserved for future usage.

I get why Nameless has no choice but to show himself, but why isn't Ray hiding? One less person for Lewis to identify would've been good

I don't think Ray would be capable of hiding his killing intent from Lewis.

Frankly i'm surprised he didn't notice the fact that there might/should have been more than 3 people there.

Which is not only logical but expected. Yes there were many injured but there were also people who could move. 
I really think his excitement about killing Emma after a hunt really got the best of him. Similar situation with Bayon.
There's just no way they could keep his guard down otherwise, so kudos to Emma and co for providing a great distraction. 
Nameless also did a great job to risk waiting for the right moment, anyone else might have rashed the shot in fear of Lewis reaching Emma before the bulllet hit the mask. However as most of you already mentioned, there goes the element of surprise. 
If Nous could give soo much trouble without his mask's protection,  l can't imagine how difficult it's going to be for Lewis to be put down.

I think they are going to kill him where enma inserted the pen underground. I have been wondering but what was that liquid like water surrounding the little structure; what if it is a mechanism of defense that only reacts to demons?

Chapter 89

 

Emma looks way too cool on the colour page.

 

The flash grenade is smart, but how long is the stun supposed to last?

Lewis using the mask fragments for detection is also smart

 

I figured he'd listen for painful cries, but he can hear bullets as well!? Talk about high difficulty.

 

---

 

So with just 4 active fighters on the field, how are they going to get him?

 

Elsewhere on the internet suggested using a bow against him, which might be feasible, assuming it still constitutes a silent weapon.

And it would fit with Emma's skill set too.

 

And there is still her trickshot gun, which should still be in Ray's possession

Chapter 90

 

I had a feeling the monkey will eventually help with detection, so it was about time

 

@Insane Soul and I tried coming up with what Emma could be referring to about Lewis, and the only thing we could think of was how inconsistent his speed has been

 

That, and in the aftermath of the bullet rain trap, you can see that his right wrist got hit, and there were other bullet holes in his cape, closer to the legs.

Perhaps this shows that Lewis has some blind spots? Cannot guard from all directions at once?

Chapter 91

 

Interesting stuff about demon biology. The older they are, the lesser their capacity to regenerate becomes.

So now we're going with the classic "burn out the regeneration" strategy

 

I had pondered the prospect of trying a bullet rain trap again to exploit whatever the weakness could be, but I really didn't think it'd actually happen.

But the way it's been presented, what with the remaining fighters making an all-out attack, is pretty cool.

@Insane Soul

 

Pardon me, but having read the Japanese raw, neither MangaStream nor the Discord translation did the first 4 pages justice.

Needed better grammar, tense, and poetry by repetition and contrast. Cut away the simplification and pretentiously complex words please.

 

This is closer to what Lewis' monologue at the start of the chapter should be:

 

[Page 1]
Humans long for happiness and hope. And yet, they are such mysterious creatures.
It is in the midst of despair that they are nurtured.
 
[Page 2]
It is in the midst of danger, extremes and despair
that humans will worry, think, rise up and evolve.
Now rise. Common meat that are dulled by comfort interests me not.
 
"I'll let you live."
 
[Page 3]
I have sown many seeds. But no matter what kind of seeds they are, they will not sprout so easily.
 
Not yet. No good. This isn't it. What I wished for ... is this.
 
[Page 4]
It's finally come true. Yes.
These are the "humans" that I love and wished to hunt. "Humans" that I desire and long to eat.
 
My dizziness has yet to subside, but I can faintly see what's close to me.
Very well, let's have some fun.
 
More. More. More!!

Imagine the "Worst Case Scenario" tactic was Enma using herself as a meatshield so they would be able to strike him directly, sorta like the tactic used against Bradley in Fullmetal Alchemist.

Chapter 92
 
Nice update on the Lambda 2147 farm. Got confirmation that it's an experiment in progress.
So Bayon had invested in Lambda, interesting. Even if it's probably far away, he still wants to buy something from there for a test drive.
 
This chapter's action was pretty hype.
 
Man, given Emma's role as a mother bear of sorts, I did ponder on the prospect that at some point, she'll put herself in considerable harm's way in order to achieve some grand victory that'll save her loved ones.
I just never expected such a moment to happen so soon.
 
In all seriousness, if Emma dies, I will become much less inclined to follow this series. Nothing else in the story can substitute for the wholesome package that is Emma.

 

Imagine the "Worst Case Scenario" tactic was Enma using herself as a meatshield so they would be able to strike him directly, sorta like the tactic used against Bradley in Fullmetal Alchemist.

No chance. Not only is Emma's frame too small for such a trick, but she still has enough life that such a desperate tactic won't be necessary. (Many of the other kids suffered worse injuries)

There is still whatever final measure that Oliver instructed Nigel to prepare for too.
 
Although, given it's Emma, I'm half-expecting her to pull out a knife and stab Lewis in the face as he flaunts his catch. She was the one to point out that bad habit of the demons after all.
