I love D.Gray-Man it's one of my favorites, but if you are gonna read it (and it's worth reading it) it's worth sticking through the bad patches in the middle, the new arc is really good but the couple of arc before that kinda sucked. I don't know why people are complaining about the art, it's nothing special but still good. I do like the characters especially Bak and Allen. Lenalee gets really annoying but it can't be perfect.

Overall: Great art, confusing story line. Lengthy story, and requires a full out attention span and to start from the beginning- and if you're hooked, you'll be stuck on the bandwagon forever... unless you're like the rest of the DGM fans, and find that latest chapters have been... ugh.
The art is amazing. You won't get sick of them, unlike others of which you take one look at a stony face and turn away. By itself, the art is a masterpiece. She has her style, but it changes every so often. It sadly isn't always clean, but that's because of the heavy contrasting of darks and lights. (Not the scanlations bigrazz )
The plot line is like a maze. Just when you think you understand it some, she turns some other way, confusing you further. At first, it goes kind of slow, but it soon picks up the pace with fighting and handsomely drawn action scenes.
The sense of humor that follows certain characters can never leave one's mind. Each character has a different personality, obviously, but it's very simple to keep one separate from another, and very clear in aspects. At least one character will come to your liking.
It isn't ecchi, and it isn't dirty. It's humorous, sometimes with adrenaline pumped action, sometimes with playful way-too-strong-but-won't-kill hits. It isn't some boring love story either, filled with lots of horror sometimes, but not at all scary. It brings out the sad and true morals of life... just sometimes interpreted in different, chaotic ways.
Lately: You can call it a fall-back manga now. It used to be... it the top thirty's? But people just can't keep up anymore. Someone wouldn't understand if you started to read at chapter 200... and now, well, someone wouldn't really enjoy it either.
I would recommend this to someone who likes dark humor and some action fighting, not someone who likes blood on every page.

I just am totally confused by the plot jump from the chapter before the hiatus and after. I really couldn't understand how they got to such a panicked scene... but oh well. I decided to give it some time to get much more chapters out, so that I can read and dissect it at my leisure... so I really haven't read much of the new art style.

I understand she hurt her wrist, but I just can't help but be wistful about the old style.... I was really in love with it.... oh well... I just have to get over it. Maybe, as she recovers, it will slowly morph back into the old style (big maybe)? Change in general is something I have issues dealing with, but I'm trying to keep an open mind.

I was just totally confused by the first post-hiatus chapter..... If you haven't gotten that by now.

people, people, people - THIS is the successor to Bleach/Naruto/One Piece.
i began reading this with mixed thoughts. they are exorcists trying to kill metal balloons and a fat guy. that was what i came into reading it thinking. bad idea. i soon found out that the plot is both original and exciting with much room for speculation. the characters are well thought out and have unique personalities.
what sets this apart from other religious conspiracy/exorcist/government conspiracy mangas is that its almost like the exorcists are fighting against the ones who give them the power (at least according to speculation up to the current point)

this is an amazing read. the artwork gets much better as the series goes on so expect awesomeness

Very nice.
I'm not realy a shounen fan but there are good doses of comedy and drama that keeps me interested.
The plot is interesting (though I find it a little annoying when they talk about how god did this and god did that like the noah stuff because I don't believe in god).
The mangaka's style is very pretty and the chars are very likeble.
A good read

Earlier on in the series, I probably would of gave it a 9.5, but it went downhill. There were times that I would of given it a 6-7 rating. Whether that's because the story was bad or I just didn't find it interesting, I can't answer. However, with the few recent chapters, I'm starting to find it much more interesting. Will it rise back to it's former glory, I don't know. Despite all this, it's definitely worth a read.

There's been a lot of complaint about DGM's changing art style and plotline. Guys, changes like that are natural in a series, and show how the characters are changing. A looser representation of Allen in a panel, for example, represents his laziness or noncompliance. Just because he's losing his cute, naive demeanor in the course of the war doesn't mean you can attack the author and her prize series.
I myself have been happy with the latest chapters. We ARE in fact solving some of the mysteries of the series as we move into the 190th chapter (Alma Karma and Kanda's lotus, etc) and even earlier (Cross' disappearance and the appearance of the 14th). Pay attention, readers. Notice the captivating plot that is developing.
My only question is: where has Lavi gone? We havent seen him since before the Kanda/Allen paris mission. I hope he enters the story again soon.
For readers starting the series, the 16 volumes that are available is the US now are INCREDIBLE. they are my favorite manga and I'm sure you'll enjoy them too. <3

I picked up this series long ago when I had seen a preview of it in Shonen Jump. I was immediately drawn to how lovely the art and characters looked. Then one day, a year or so later, I saw the series at my local bookstore. I opened it and didn't close it until I was finished. I stayed in that bookstore for a while reading the different volumes. It's a great series. Allen is a tad too goody-goody at the start, but as you read on, he matures. There is great storyline and character development. Even the evil characters are lovable (I mean come on! The Earl is a jolly old fat guy with a different top hat every time) I really love DGM. To this day it's my favorite manga/anime series. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes shonen manga, or just manga with that lovely historical flare. I just hope it doesn't get a bad rep because it's a popular shonen series...

Needed some time to actually like this manga, love Rinali and reading it became easier since volume 3. The art is pretty good, but quite confusing at times during action scenes imo. The story seems nice and still developping; got some very cool ideas in there and a very special sense of style to it.
