Of course, the statement, "don't judge a book by its cover" really does fit this anime.
Really, don't pass this anime up. You'll regret that you did.

"Exorcists: those who aim to destroy akuma and retrieve the Innocence scattered around the world."
So. At first look D.Gray-man may seem like a typical shonen anime. The main character is probably going to be a hot-head who wants to get stronger and stronger for a certain purpose... usually to protect his friends.
D.Gray-man is not like any shonen anime I've ever seen. In fact, it's got something much more than most.
You may be thinking "Hmm... a guy with a deformed arm... Full Metal Alchemist?"
Well, no, actually.
D.Gray-man's plot may seem like it's going on the same path as FMA at first, but it transforms into something completely different.
I love the plot. At first (since I don't normally watch horror anime) I thought it was a little creepy, but it was an addicting kind of creepy. I couldn't get enough of it.
Though in the beginning I thought it was going to be typical shonen since there's talk about "finding all of the Innocence", I was a little skeptical about watching DGM.
But, after a while, that passed and it grew into something much more.
Of course, there's that issue of fillers. Darn fillers ruin a lot of anime sometimes, but I couldn't tell when there was a filler when I watching DGM. The fillers are actually good. Really.
I don't want to spoil the series, but let's just say that once you start watching DGM, you'll never want to stop.
I loved the animation. At first, it starts off okay, but during the third and fourth season, it really kicks into gear.
The characters match the manga really well, and stayed true to Hoshino-sama's character design.
The lighting and scenery are utterly beautiful. There are too many beyond words places that this anime visits.
The sound is good, but I found the background music boring at times. It's used over and over again--but the background music is still good.
The OP's match the anime extremely well.
At first when I heard the ED's, I really didn't like a lot of them. Listen to the ED's a couple of times, and you'll fall in love with them.
First of all, the main character,Allen Walker, is the exact opposite of most main shonen anime and manga characters. Allen Walker is the polite and klutzy type who just loves to eat, but there's much more to him than meets the eye, just as there is with the other characters.
Of course you have to have the comic relief, Lavi, who can still fight.
You have a guy who just seems to make you laugh every time you seem him, Yu Kanda.
You have a girl who can kick some serious butt, Lenalee.
You have a really... weird but cool adult figure, Komui.
And, of course, there's kick-ass villains who you just want to love--but you have to keep reminding yourself that they are evil, and WILL kill your favorite main characters.
I found it extremely hard to NOT hate any of the characters.
And... there was something else that caught my eye about these characters.
They seemed REAL.
This anime focuses on the characters more than the plot, even though the plot is almost as interesting as the characters.
I really enjoyed this anime.
I think that every anime or manga fan should watch/read DGM.
It's my favorite anime--and D.Gray-man always makes me sit on the edge of my seat, tear up, and put a smile on my face.
I hope that D.Gray-man does the same to you.

Where to begin? At first... this anime didn't catch my eye. I thought that it wasnt going to be worth my time on account of the story sounded a little... odd and off. But as I started to watch the anime more and more, I really began to fall in love with everything that this anime has to offer.
First things first, the story is very interesting. The first episode really caught my attention--and I wanted more. At time the story line can drag on, and I found it hard to watch, but the other parts of the anime really outweigh the bad parts. The plot has everything from your typical shonen funny moments to the serious and tense scences, to the little romantic moments here and there.
The art... is very good for a shonen anime. Most of the time (as some can tell) shojo anime is usually drawn a little better that shonen, but I find that Bleach's animation is very good. Sometimes it can be a little inconsistant, but otherwise, I love it.
Wow. The sound, everything is catchy. The opening and ending songs all are very catchy, and they relate to what is going on in the anime at that time. The background music really fits the different scenes, but to me sometimes they don't.... but they sound is still very good.
This anime probably has my favorite cast of characters. All of them are really lovable and you just can't say you hate them all. The characters don't look the same, as with some other anime. All of them have very different personalities and looks. Overall... the characters are probably the best part of this anime.
Bleach is a very nice anime. I enjoy it a lot on account of how smooth everything is. I really do like it.
This anime is a must for all who like to watch anime. Bleach is probably one of the greatest anime there is today. ^^ read more
