    I don't know if this is deserving of a new thread, but I was wondering, what do you all think... is the shading at the bottom of the presumed AL's face a goatee beard, or just the shadow from his collar?

    After seeing the raw, I think it's just shadow personally - the shading seems more like Kishi's shadows (coloured with lines) than his hair (which is normally solid). It looks a bit weird as a shadow because of the bit where it suddenly drops, but it looks weird as a beard too... :p So I think it's just a strangely drawn shadow, and the AL does not have a beard. :p

    Edit: Also, the dark area seems to go onto his neck too, and you can see the line at the bottom of his face through it.

    It has too strange a shape to be a shadow.

    It doesn't fit the shape of a collar either.

    It's neither beard nor shadow. It's a tatoo.

    Tatoo, goatee or shadow. I think it's impossible to tell.

    It reminds me of Kaiyra or whatever that Bounts' name is in the Bleach Filler Arc, with that red slash by his chin.

    It's a piercing or dot. Just like the ones on his nose.

    With just the left thing I would agree that it was a flap, but not since it has both parts.

    It could be some sort of a face thing like Yamato has... not exactly the same but some variation on it.

    Or it could be a goatee.

    Definitely something though.

    I hope it is indeed a goatee (which a suspect). Nose rings and a goatee? Badassery incarnate.

    Hmmm, I zoomed in at the last page where AL is shown and it looks like a lip piercing. I am almost 100 % sure, just zoom in and you will notice it. It somehow looks like the piercing on the following pic. The colour is diffrent and the AL has it on the right side of his mouth.

    It's a shadow. Observe the shadow cast from the nose. See how large the shadow is? That's because the light comes at his face from a very high angle. Light at this angle would also make smaller details in his face cast shadows, such as the lips.
