OK I'm not sure if anyone started a forum like this, sorry if this is an extra! but Iv'e been waiting for an explanation for Athena becoming Alice. Ever since chapter 300 where Athena suddenly asks where his brother is, all that pops into my mind is "WHAT WHAT'S HAPPENING?" then in the next couple chapters, you find out about Alice who is a chibi version of Athena.(My guess is she's restoring her power?) Then you see Aika show this weird bar thing? and it's apparently not enough to explain the situation. Then alas after a long wait the mystery room chapters make a reference to chapter 300, where Hayate remembers how Athena told him not to talk about the Royal Garden. now here I am, chapter 405, and nothing has been done since then. I'm just so anxious, Athena is the girl I want him to end up with, but so far I'm not even sure if she's there! of course in a later chapter 383 you see what seems to be Athena's spirit looking pretty angry at Hayate. The point of this is, the manga has been giving small clues on this whole Athena Alice thing, but I'm just so curious! ANY IDEAS???
