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!!!

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 watched the anime first before reading the manga and I thought both the manga and anime were excellent! The art is beautiful in the beginning but towards the latest chapters it's gotten worse however that doesn't downgrade the manga. This is one of my favorite mangas because the good guys don't always win which makes it more realistic.
The art the beginning was so good but allen always looked a little timid, as chapters gone by i'm not sure if the author decided to change the hair style but he looked more healthier. Overall, the art is beautiful and is very detailed. One of my favorite art in the mangas I've read.
The plot was well thought through and executed well. Even though there are some gaps here and there the plots isn't too confusing. You may get confused the beginning but later on it will make you want to read the next chapter. The innonence was very creative and there was different magic abilities! biggrin Also, the "good guys" didn't always win so that made it more realistic.
There wasn't a lot of character development through chapters but there has been some though the past. Each character was unique in its own way, but allen had a more "good" personality. He always want to save everyone but overall the characters were pretty realistic. 10/10

However, I was very disappointed by the latest chapters. I was no longer excited and everything seemed to be getting worse and worse. I can understand the art because the author injured her wrist but I just don't feel excited reading the manga anymore.

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.

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.

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

The manga used to be one of my favorites but now it has corroded to your run-of-the-mill shounen manga. But what really killed it for me was the new art style which came with the serialization change. Most of the time you can't say whats going on, in fights the scenes are so messy I have absolutely no idea what the characters are doing most of the time.
I can't say D Gray man is awful but there are dozens of mangas like it is now out there, it's a pitty I really enjoyed reading it.
