Losing a loved one is so painful that one may sometimes wish to be able to resurrect them—a weakness that the enigmatic Millennium Earl exploits. To make his mechanical weapons known as "Akuma," he uses the souls of the dead that are called back. Once a soul is placed in an Akuma, it is trapped forever, and the only way to save them is to exorcise them from their vessel using the Anti-Akuma weapon, "Innocence."

After spending three years as the disciple of General Cross, Allen Walker is sent to the Black Order—an organization comprised of those willing to fight Akuma and the Millennium Earl—to become an official Exorcist. With an arm as his Innocence and a cursed eye that can see the suffering souls within an Akuma, it's up to Allen and his fellow Exorcists to stop the Millennium Earl's ultimate plot: one that can lead to the destruction of the world.

D.Gray-man is based on Katsura Hoshino's manga series of the same title. The anime adapts the first 158 chapters from the first 16 volumes, while adding anime exclusive content, mainly during the first half of the series.

FUNimation Entertainment licensed and released only the first 51 episodes of D.Gray-man. The explanation they provided for not acquiring the remaining episodes was that there were licensing issues with Dentsu. However, on June 30, 2016, it was announced that Funimation acquired the rights the second half of the anime.

I rate it much higher because D.gray-man is one of the most underrated series of all time and definitely deserved the watched. If you have watched demon slayer or AOT, this has the same vibes with it. Exorcist verses demons. Great character building and even the world building is very good. Characters are memorable since it's not that many and has an important role to play in the story. Allen Walker as a character is cool and funny but has an unending obsession to the promise he made with Mana. A character that was portrayed to be his ...

hello and welcome to a hungover shitty review.

the author puts forth a lot of good general ideas and concepts. a shounen battle series with exorcists hunting demons who are more like a mixture between machines and former human souls, created by some generic evil fat guy who claims to hate god.

this sort of setting has a lot of potential, so where did it all go wrong? execution. especially the pacing is completely FUBAR. this author may have interesting ideas but has no idea how to express them in an adequate way.

take the first 50 something episodes for instance, more like 50 shades of boredom. literally ...

I'm going to be honest: don't waste your time with the anime. It does not do the manga ANY justice whatsoever. I happen to be a huge fan of the manga; the art style has always impressed me, the pacing is just right, the humor is done well, and the characters are so well developed and interested. 10/10 in every category.

The anime has none of that.

The animation is lackluster, the filler plots are long, abundant, and dull, and the characters are simplified and just not done well at all (it's difficult to explain, but the depth and fullness of the characters just do not come ...
