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.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
This is one of my favorite manga. But its making me kinda mad when people are saying this manga got bad because the drawing style changed and stuff like that. Of course the drawing style would chamge a bit. The charcters are growing. Literally. The main-ish characters (Allen, Lenalee, Kanda, and Lavi) are all slowly maturing. Theyre getting older so of course theyre appearence would change slightly. This isnt pokemon where the characters can be around for like 50 years and not age even a year. Allens appearence is changing more than the other characters cause hes slowly becoming the 14th. Hes changing into a noah. And its not like the time in the series only goes on for like 2 months. Its probably been at least a year after the ark arc because by then Lenalees hair grew back by the time Allen disappeared. So its been about two to three years since Allens
been in the black order. And for those of you who are complaining about not enough character development there is plenty. Allen and the gang has gone through a lot throughout the series. Lenalee gets more emotional now and it feels like shes a bit insecure after the ark arc. Allen at first is all gentalmanly and isnt a very loud person starts to be a more loud person and isnt as formal as he was before. Hes also developing cause he has to deal with turning into the 14th. Kanda is obviously developing. In the beginning it was clear that he completely hated Allen. But when Kanda stays behind to fight Skin it is shown that he actually at least slightly cares for him and the rest by staying behind and sacrificing himself. It is also clear that he doesnt hate Lenalee or his master and fellow apprentices. He also displays a developing friendship with Allen at the end of the series by going with Johnny and looking for Allen and helping him deal with turning into the 14th. Lavi develops at bit by being able to relaxe a bit with his new friends whereas before he didnt really make friends because he was constantly changing his identity and moving from place to place. Even Johnny develops just by going out and searching for Allen. Throughout the series he didnt have much screen time but now he can be considered one of the main characters for the current arc.

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
