So promising...   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

D.Gray-Man is a manga that thoroughly disappointed me - not because of how awful it is, but because of how wonderful the beginning was compared to the mediocre chapters following it.

The D.Gray-Man world pulled me in... the characters were interesting to me, and the premise seemed promising. The beginning sets you up for a surreal, gothic tale.

But that's not what you get.
I was anguished to see such a wonderful start head down a typical shonen path of cliches, accompanied by poorly drawn fight scenes and flat-as-cardboard, underdeveloped characters, which twists together to create a confusing jumble of ink on paper.

If you enjoy typical shonen manga as well as the darker side of entertainment, and you aren't confused easily, you'll probably enjoy D.Gray-Man.

If you enjoy the darker side of entertainment only, steer clear, lest you end up disappointed like me.

D grayman used to be one of my top read, but after 200+ ch, the scanlation started to slow and with all those changes, I decided to hold the book off. Haven't read after the ch 200 something.

So, yeah, I give this upper-mediocre rating as I truly enjoy this at the beginning.

from all those reviews that said this manga is good, i just cant understand. well, for a start, it;s only standard opening. great character design, but as time passed by, you can just see the plot. especially Allen, he is just getting irritating every single chapter being the goody-goody guy. he pictured as a real epic story hero and it really tiocked me off. FMA is way much better.
talking about character growing and stuff, i think this one have none.
no offense, just a comment. readable, but not a great manga.

This was one of my favorite manga. It used to be so freaking awesome.

After it went to monthly releases due to some health (?) issues of the mangaka it became a big piece of sh*t. Seriously nowadays I hate it. It went from being a 9/10 to a f-ing 2.5/10.

Seriously read it until it becomes a monthly manga. When you get there stop or continue if you're a fan of having to stop reading a chapter so you can facepalm with the stupidity of certain scenes. The new chapter just came out and it seems to be getting even worse.

R.I.P. Weekly D. Gray-Man You will be missed.

I had high hopes for this manga after hearing good things about it, but unfortunately, as far as shounen manga goes, this is definitely on the weaker end of the spectrum. The problem with D. Grayman is that the story moves at much too far a pace for it's own good, leaving completely undeveloped and boring characters in it's wake. The story itself is nothing to write home about, and the world that D. Grayman is set in is definitely not as fleshed out as it could've been. That said, being an action manga, much of the focus on D. Grayman is on the fights instead of the story, but it even falters in this area. This is yet another manga where characters get power ups out of absolutely nowhere and people gain powers they usually wouldn't from the power of friendship. Another problem with the fight scenes in this manga is how absurdly cluttered all the manga frames are. I often found myself not being able to make head or tail of what was going on. The art itself is quite decent, though, with nice, clean and detailed backgrounds and characters, although the character design is incredibly generic.

Still, even with all the downfalls that D. Grayman has, I still found myself reading it up to the very current chapter, as it's not so bad that it's completely unreadable. It's just utterly mediocre as far as shounen manga goes with no above average qualities whatsoever. Read it on a day when you have nothing better to do.

Some where along the line it started to drag.

Overall the characters are generally well designed but mostly static. At times the amount of characters addressed in a chapter is overwhelming and causes me to lose track of the situation. This is accented by the fact that the story is progressing rather slowly and often leaves me feeling that nothing happened in given chapters. Perhaps the flow is more consistent in volume format but I have doubt. As of chapter 165, after a noticeable 30ish chapter slump, the series appears to be back on track. Hopefully it'll stay that way.

at first i really liked it, i thought it might defy shounen conventions and be awesome, but its not. The humor is a little off, the tone isn't consistent, and its hard to really care about the characters.

All around its like a really badly done Full Metal Alchemist, same plot, attempt at similar characters (Allen is edward, Kanda is roy, lavi is al), and the same religious symbolism, all tied up in a save the world plot. So skip this and read FMA instead.
