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.

I adore D.Gray-man <3 However, I have a little critic for you guys... the summary provided for the series doesn't represent it, and much less the chosen pic. It's all good if you're Linali fans, but she's far from the main character >< But most of all, I'd change the info. Why not take some mini summary from one of the groups scanlating it, if not from Wikipedia? There's a nice article on DGM there.

D.Gray-Man is absolutely breathtaking! The futher you advance in the story the more you have to read it! In the begining the story is prety obvious, The Milenium Earl tries to destroy the world with his Akuma's and he Noah clan, but the story becomes much more intense and realistc (I'm serious, the war becomes more like how it could be here in our world if we had such a war).
Hoshino-sensei does the best she can with the art, people are complaining about it but the art is still good and a great part of the characters even look more appealing than before (Tyki~ Road~and yes Allen to~~ =3)! And she has her own unique style, no matter how she draws it! And every mistakes or things she doesn't like in the drawing style is re-drawn/coloured in the Volume's.
She tries to draw as much as possible as she can, being to scare to dissapoint her fans (seriously, she's like Miranda (from this series) and she's so cute!)

This manga is really worth to read! and it's also fun to read her try-out manga's Zone and Continue, you see how those two manga's turns into D.Gray-Man, one of the best manga's ever!!!

I'm starting to think that its actually not Hoshino drawing this manga at all... after the hiatus because her wrist she just accepted that she cant draw anymore and got into a big slump, so she just passed the whole project to her assistant(s) who gambled on it, but lost, cause the last chapters are just terrible. Its caos. Where are the beautiful fighting scenes? The fine art? This could be explainded with the wrist problem, if this was the oly problem. But the style, the story and even the characters changed so much that I just cant believe that this is tha same mangaka who started the whole story. I'm dissapointed, and Im so sorry that one of my fav manga is destroyed.

this is one of my favorite series becus it's actually more realistic than almost any other anime/manga, it's not the typical shounen stereotype when the "good guys prevail" it's quite the opposite there are at a disadvantage and the bad guys are actually makes me think that the heroes just might lose but overall its great, at first it might be boring but the farthere u get into it u get used to it and it becomes even more better so if you read this, give D. Gray-Man a try .p.s great plot as well ^-6

D.gray-man was a good manga to begin with. It might take you a while to really get into the mood but it pays off in the end. The characters are well developed and it isn't just fighting, there is a actually story to it. The story is also very interesting and a bit deep but not too angst, albeit it has his moments of pure angst, but thankfully, those are rare. It does have alot of fighting, it is a shounen after all but the story does seep through sometimes and the characters aren't mass-production clones, except a few. But its also a bit depressing as the protagonist doesn't have a huge arsenal of atomic bomb at his disposal and if someone might say that this will end like every shounen does (big battle - hero wins - happy ever after) I will seriously doubt it because the protagonist has a seriously disadvantage and its also very realistic at the same time because good things dont always happen to good guys.

But D.gray-man has been on hiatus for about three or four times already and it took the mangaka about three or four months to come back last time. The art style has also drastically changed since the beginning. The beginning was a bit round but was generally good as you could see what was going on and who was saying what. The recent art style is extremely messy and you cant comprehend what the hell is going on. The drawings are overlapping and the screentones give you a headache. You need to reread everything at least three times before realising what is going on.

Its serialization started in april 2004, same month and year as Reborn! but reborn has spanned 25 vols, while D.gray-man only 18, caused by the mangaka going on hiatus. You can blame the mangaka for going on hiatus because you'd rather have a good and late manga than a lousy quick one but it's easier to outgrow a series that hasn't published regularly.

So I'd say that starting D.gray-man is you're own risk.
The story is interesting and fresh, the characters are also nice (and bishie, almost everyone) but its now serialized in jump square, so you'd have to wait a month for a manga that's hard to follow and fries your brain.
Read at your own risk

D.gray-man is one the best manga i read so far.Its one of the shounen that I'm reading and doesn't seem so predictable. You can't just compare this with Bleach or Naruto.You just can't. It's so on a league of its own. It has a genius story plot that keeps you wanting more. Not like other shounen for instance bleach (i like bleach and all but you can't deny)that it keeps on going on in circles with the same people and same events. The characters and story evolve. You see struggle and heart break but you also see characters that keep on going when all the outcomes say "we are so going to die" and still find away to keep sane so how win with their pride intact. D.gray-man is a moving story that has an edge of darkness and whole alot of cool superpowers.
