I was so Glad its back that I shed tears exactly like the Millennium Earl and Allen or Nea or Mana or ...the guy who actually was there. I never lost hope to see it again but I would like to read it also. Oh well, I guess I will have to wait a little more for the translation of this chapter but it is nothing compared to the years and month we had to wait.

Oh. My. God.

I usually can't read Japanese at all but this overflowing happiness suddenly made me capable of understanding it.
That art improvement. I still remember the horrid art of the last few chapters before the short hiatus.

Also Allen best boi is finally back <3

I don't understand anymore lol. The Earl is not the earl but mana. How? Wasn't Mana become an Akuma right before the Earl at the beginning? Is it a plot hole or will we get an explanation next chapter? Allen has Nea's memories. Nea and Mana are twins but when they were together they were known as the Earl... Damn it some twisted shit is going on o.o well the art style is really awesome!

Damn right it is x_x And same, I reread the chapter before and remembered as far as Kanda and everyone else chasing after Allen, but I can't remember much before that.

But yeah, things are becoming confusing with Allen now...

Welp, I expect it to be explained later

After the long wait, its finally back in action with epicness, awesomeness, and huge revelation.

I'm actually glad Road is still alive, although I think she still in recovering stage. Wisely conversation with Road is interesting and funny how Earl actually inside the car knitting before go see Allen/Nea. It seems Apo being captured by the Noahs successfully. Gonna be interesting if we got to see Noah interrogating with Apo. Also,the Noah interaction is fun as always.

The whole Earl/Mana & Allen/Nea scene was touching and shocking for me. Earl being Mana make things even more complicated. Like most people, getting confuse on how it relates to the backstory of Allen calling Mana as Akuma. The split most likely happen around 50-55 plus year(assuming they grow normally since 35 years ago they should be around 17 years old from their look). Can't think of another perfect timing for the split. Though the revelation makes me really interest in what happened 35 years ago.

Another 3 months to go for the next chapter. At least now we know when the chapter will come out. Wait is better than nothing even though I'm actually impatient. Hoshino sensei, fighto!!! xD

Maybe it wasn't Mana, but Nea implanting his own memories into Allen, and calling himself Mana for some reason? And considering the conversation between Nea and the Earl it seems like memories can be destroyed or manipulated in some way (which was hinted at earlier as well), so perhaps not all events we were shown in flashbacks were entirely accurate.

True, but after 2 years 3 months is nothing.

Finally we have a new chapter !!!

I admit that I don't really understand what happened --> Gotta re-read the previous chapters.
The art is delightful with many double page.

The wait is long until the next chapter, but at least we know when we will read it :
D. Gray Man is serialized in the Jump SQ.Crown, a new trimestrial magazine.

I was waiting for the series to continue before I decided whether or not to pick up the manga and continue from where the anime ended.

THIS chapter convinced me. The artwork alone was exceedingly beautiful when you compare it to the previous chapters (which I have skimmed), and it was pretty intense plot wise. Definitely gonna pick up the manga and continue reading the updates

I KNEW IT. I KNEW MANA WAS THE EARL!! But why did earl became a baby? why did they separate ? Then who was the one who died and got revived as akuma by allen? Who is allen? why is the memories jumbled up? Urgh so much questions and only four times a year?

The Millennium Earl being Mana and Nea was very much surprising and confusing but it explains why the 14th is technically not supposed to exist. Their are 13 Noahs but the Millennium Earl got separated into 2 being. My theory is that the Millennium Earl had the mission to deliver 'God wrath' thus eradicate humanity however he felt lonely and end up felling in love with Katerina or something. As a result of being conflicted, he was separated thus 'Mana' took the role of the Millennium willing to destroy humanity and 'Nea' took another different path. The only thing that is odd is the akuma scene with Allen so maybe the 'Mana' that Allen always knew was in fact Nea or that scene was just a memory manipulation.

They've always been hinting that the Earl and Allen were two sides of one coin, and now that Mana=the Earl and Nea=Allen, it all makes a little more sense. As for the Mana Allen knew... well, all we know about Mana comes from Allen's memories and we know that memories (especially Allen's) are unreliable. But I think I need to reread everything from chapter 1 to understand what happened, even if only a little... That being said, the art totally blew me away. The art had improved greatly in the later chapters, but this one was just... wow.

Too bad that it's only going to update four times a year from now on. But hey, everything's better than a hiatus.

I thought the same thing. It actually sounds very plausible.

Wisely said that if the Millennium Earl is no more then the Noah will be destroyed by the heart... so possibly Allen is the accomodator of the heart, but now that Nea has taken over his body, killing Nea (the Earl) would also kill Allen. In other words, in order to kill the Earl, Allen would have to die as well.
Either that, or killing Nea that would also be killing Allen, and so the heart would be unable to destroy the rest of the Noah.

I may be forgetting something that could prove this theory wrong though, but it seems like it could be a likely plot twist that Hoshino would make to spice up the story

so if you notice katerina is dressed in two separate outfits from when she met the original earl and when he became mana and neah. so I'm assuming that the consecutively met each other over a period of time and I'm wondering if the original earl might have fallen in love wit her. that maybe he fell in love with a human, which is the very beings he was sent to judge and destroy. and each part of the original earl (mana and Neah) represent his conflicting feelings. on who wants to destroy and the other that wants to protect. if that's true then that would be very interesting!

also i want to know the other Noah's parts in this and who Road really is to them!

I always thought of it as ALLEN = NEA ll, as in Nea the second, myself. I have heard it mentioned that Allen was the name of Mana's dog before he met our Allen and he just started calling the kid by his dog's name. Great chapter though! So much going on. I really thought Nea was going to attack the Earl before they embraced each other. It does leave us a lot of questions though, particularly with how akuma Mana is going to be handled. Really looking forward to where this is going!

edit: This is a bit off-topic, but what is the general feel people have about Cross surviving or staying dead in future chapters? Personally, I kind of expect him to be alive but possessing Maria's body. We never hear what happened to the Grave of Maria and we know that Cross has access to some kind of special magic not tied to innocence. Also Allen's reaction to 'Cross Maria' would be hilarious. Just curious what other people expect in later chapters.

Wow, what a way to come back.

I really didn't expect that twist, nor that art improvement for that matter. Tho I might need to reread the whole thing from the start, cause it's been such a long time since I read the last chapter. I'm glad to see Allen again, but Nea seems to have taken over. I hope he's still in there, somewhere...

This is overwhelming but I have a theory. Allen and The Earl are like opposite sides of a coin. So if Allen is an Noah cum Exorcist, the Earl may be a Noah cum Akuma. As evident by his clown suit that may be some level 10 akuma armour. It also explains how the Earl's looks has changed as mentioned by Neah and his lost memories as Mana. We have seen what happens when a Noah awakens in an exorcist's body in Allen's case. Let's think about what happens if a Noah awakens in an Akuma.

First off, i'm glad this is back :)

Anyways let me get this straight, Mana who took care of Allen/Nea when he was younger, who was later turned into an akuma and killed was actually the Millineum Earl he knew for the majority of the series ( The fat version) who turned out to be one of the other half of the original Millinueum Earl (the one we saw with the long hair in this chapter ) along with Nea??

I think i'm going to reread the whole manga in the near future because this is confusing as hell XD

I think Cross may be alive but not necessarily possessing Maria, since not only is Grave of Maria missing, but Cross's body was never found. But I'm not sure what to think of what Allen saw from Apo's memories of shooting Cross... can't remember if he was dead&gone or just disappeared from view. Like many people here, I'll be re-reading the series again to remind myself of the details.

Oh man, its great to have D.Gray-Man back. The characters, the plot twists, the utterly confusing mind fuck. The greatness.

That twist alone would be 10/10, but the overall art and everything makes this way above the maximum score.

So far, its unknown really. The blood he lost, it would be impossible to survive and Hevlaska said his innocence no longer belongs to him.
On the other hand, there is no body, so nothing can be said for certain.
