W123 said:Both have a relatively slow pace, but, in my opinion, D. Gray Man gets interesting earlier than Black Clover (D. Gray Man by the 9th episode, Black Clover by the 20th or something episode). I recommend you not to drop Black Clover, however, it may take its time to get good, by I assure you that the show gets really entertaining later. If you like battle shounens, give it a second chance at least, if you don't mind.
Powerscale wise, yeah, D. Gray Man is lower than Bleach (the strongest character of the series can destroy a city, but it is implies he's way stronger than that). But, don't worry, the series has indeed explosive battles like the Bleach ones, sometimes even gorier.
W123 said:If you mean fights in the style of "hero is facing a very difficult situation and gains a new, awesome power" then yes, there are three or four fights with something like that. Not with something as hardcore as Hollow Ichigo of the Ulquiorra fight, however.
In my opinion, it is one of the best shounens out there, and even though it has filler, it has much less than Naruto or Bleach, so if you are able to stand those two, you wouldn't have problems with D. Gray Man.
That being said, if you decide to read the manga after finishing the anime, prepare to wait for a lifetime for the series to end.
Does it have insane fights like Bleach does? For example Ichigo vs Ulquiorra?
Ok so im guessing the power levels in d gray man are slightly lower then? I mean I really enjoy the explosive power in bleach like Aizen final fight , Zaraki Kenpachi vs nnoitra, etc
Ok I’m really tempted to start it now you got me hooked. However I’m in the middle of watching Black clover so unsure if I should drop it. How would you compare the both ?
However, if you are tired of Black Clover, you can put it aside for a time and start D. Gray Man. Black Clover so far doesn't has an ending date (there are rumours who says it will end by the 102th episode, but are only rumours), while D. Gray Man has 116 episodes (103 of the first anime + 13 of the sequel), and the anime it's not gonna go anywhere, so I'll leave things at that.
