Thousands of years ago, there existed those gifted with the power of God. Their mission: to destroy the ominous evils that lurk in the darkness known as "Akuma." Led by the Milenium Earl, Akuma seek to destroy fragments of "Innocence," the only weapons capable of harming the Earl and his army and bring about the Great Flood from a hundred years ago.

To prevent this tragedy from happening, the Black Order was formed as an organization dedicated to fighting the Earl. They recruit Exorcists, those with the inherent ability to accomodate Innocence, to fight against the Akuma.

In the late 19th century, Allen Walker—a white-haired boy armed with Innocence that takes the form of his entire left arm and a cursed eye that can see Akuma—is sent to the Black Order. There, Allen meets various comrades from the Order—the mercurial Yuu Kanda, the kindhearted Lenalee Lee, and the cheerful yet mysterious Lavi. Despite their different personalities, they have one goal in mind: to bring salvation to the souls of Akuma and prevent the Earl from destroying the world.

It started off quite slow, but around the second half of the series (around volume 12,13,14) it picks up a bit. By volume 21,22 + it gets insane. Enough to call it an unfinished masterpiece. I'm sure when I read it again, I'll pick up on a lot of things I missed

story 10 - plot twists are insane. and the slow buildup worked. when reading this itll pay off if your patient

When i first found out about d gray man, i wasn't very enthusiastic about it, the synopsis sounded as generic and repetitive as almost every shonen ; a cursed boy joins an organisation to defeat some evil dudes. It wasn't until i stumbled upon katsura hoshino's marvelous art, and i liked the aesthetically pleasing gothic setting of the story. I checked few panels and illustrations and eventually decided to give it a shot.

D gray man is the farthest thing from a generic shonen story, it's truly a shame this manga isn't as famous as many other works . It probably got stuck in the middle ...

Preliminary (76/? eps)
We're trying out a random, shonen series at the media library, which I think has had some success. The concept is already a little lame: "exorcists" fight against a millennial Count, who uses the negative emotions of the pecores of the XIXth century to graft them Akuma (demons-machine) in order, of course, to destroy humanity. Well, why not, but the not uninteresting moral pitch (resentment, hatred, sadness as an inner ghost to fight) is quickly eclipsed by nagging fights, drawn without any legibility, and with a very limited tactical interest.

The characters seem, moreover, to be clichés on legs, whose character is revealed more in the ...
