Editorial Reviews

The supernatural adventure D.Gray-man (2006) takes place at "the end of the Fictional 19th Century," when the human race is in trouble. Millennium Earl has created a race of ferocious zombie-demons called "Akumas" from the souls of the dead. They retain the appearance of humans until they attack, then turn into grotesque mecha. Battling the Akumas are the Exorcists of the Black Order, humans with special powers augmented by the mysterious substance "Innocence." Fifteen-year-old Allen Walker has an Akuma-fighting weapon in his arm and a mutated left eye that can pierce the demons' disguises. White- haired and skinny, he's not an impressive hero: the grim samurai-exorcist Kanda, who sometimes serves as his reluctant partner, refers to him as "short stack." D.Gray-man was clearly modeled on Fullmetal Alchemist and Bleach. Millennium Earl looks like a cross between Shou Tucker, the creator of chimeras in Fullmetal Alchemist, and the Mayor of Halloween Town in The Nightmare Before Christmas. But director Osamu Nabeshima can't quite bring off the correct mixture of fantasy-adventure, flashy special effects, broad comedy, and emotional warmth. D.Gray-man feels disjointed in both tone and story. (Rated TV 14: violence, grotesque imagery, alcohol use, potentially offensive religious imagery) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

A Hero is only as good as His Enemies

Darkness is moving in, and young exorcist Allen Walker is humanity’s greatest hope against the wicked forces conspiring to bring civilization to its knees. Akuma – cruel spirits born of tragedy and lost souls – lurk in every shadow, willing and eager to do the bidding of their leader, the dread Millennium Earl. With an eye cursed to see evil in its truest form and blessed with an arm to slay soul-devouring demons, Allen stands ready to confront the gathering storm. Should he fail, Innocence will be lost forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walking on December 31, 2008
If Tim Burton were ever to attempt a steampunk horror story, then I imagine the results would be something like "D.Gray-man."

And the first thirteen episodes of this gothic, deeply quirky anime attempts just that kind of atmosphere. "D.Grayman: Season 1 Part 1" starts off relatively slowly as it introduces the main storyline, the akuma and the sweet-natured Allan Walker. But the story really blossoms as our likable, haunted hero begins his new life among other exorcists.

Two cops are investigating an abandoned church when Officer Moore encounters a strange boy with a deformed hand, Allen Walker. After her partner is killed, Allen manages to save Moore from an akuma -- an enslaved human soul under the control of the evil Millennium Earl. When Allen is placed under house arrest in Moore's home, he reveals that the akuma is nearby... and its origins lie in a horrific tragedy from Moore's own past. Only Allen can stop it.

Later Allen arrives at the clifftop Exorcist Headquarters to introduce himself as an official exorcist. But things don't go very smoothly -- he's mistaken for a spy, the exorcists are weirdos, and the place is governed by mad genius Komui and eerie Hevlaska. But Allen finds out just what "Innocence" is, and why the exorcists are racing to find it.

His first missions are no less stressful: first Allen is called to accompany antisocial swordsman Kanda to an abandoned city haunted by a "ghost"... and a shapeshifting akuma. And he encounters a young boy determined to fight the akuma, but unaware that someone close to him is one -- and a face-to-face encounter with the Earl reveals the horrifying reason Allen became an exorcist.

In 2004, mangaka Katsura Hoshino's "D. Gray-Man" was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine with 19 manga collected manga volumes currently released.

With the manga series popularity, in 2006, "D. Gray-Man" received its anime adaptation and in three years, a total of 103 episodes were featured in Japan on TV Tokyo and also received various video game series, soundtracks and also novels.

FUNimation Entertainment began releasing the series in the US via 13-episode volumes on DVD (with the most recent release being the season two part two) and now the first 13 episodes (season one part one) is being released on Blu-ray.

"D. Gray-Man" focuses on the 15-year-old character, Allen Walker, who is an exorcist who works for the Black Order, an organization that is trying to stop the main antagonist Millennium Earl. Earl wants to destroy humanity by creating an army of akuma. What Earl does is go to those who grieve for a love one that passed away and asks them if they want to see their love one alive and if they do, they just have to call out the deceased one's name.

In this case, Earl brings up this metal skeleton in which the soul of the dead comes alive and takes over the metal skeleton that are now akuma. Earl then urges for these akuma to kill the person that wished them back and take over their body in order to inflict more harm on humanity.

It is the job of the exorcists to stop these akuma and kill them but for Allen, unlike others who work for the Black Order, he understands their anguish of being revived to kill and having no control over what they do. Allen knows this from experience as he was tricked by Earl when he was young and ended up bringing his dead father Mana back to life as an akuma.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorites! February 15, 2009
The series does start out slow but picks up later. The first part indroduces you to characters, backgrounds, concepts, and you start to dip your foot into the plot. Later on, you're fully submerged into the plot and you cling to the end of your seat waiting for what comes next. Fights don't drag on forever but don't end too quickly. It's filled with lots of action, some dark stories, and humor that will have you laughing out loud.

I love the charaters in D. Gray-Man. They range so much and have so much personality to them. You get to know both bad and good guys and love them both, even the Earl.

I recommend this series to everyone.

If you've seen and enjoyed the series Trinity Blood or Full Metal Alchemist you'll truly enjoy this series as it seems to be a combination of both. The main story seems to follow on two groups the Black Order a holy order trying to protect mankind from destruction by the dark group lead by the nefarious leader The Millennium Earl. The shows main cast character is a young exorcist Alan Walker who's left arm is imbued with an anti-akuma weapon(A mystical weapon use to destroy the akuma and free the trapped souls within). The show has a lot of hilarious parts so you'll won't see just straight drama and action and I truly appreciate that, I don't mind hardcore drama and action within a series but sometimes it gets a little monotonous seeing the characters like that all the time and seem to never loosen up. The animation is decent and clear for what you expect for recent animes and the voice cast for the Japanese and English characters were good too. Now my only problem is having to wait for Funimation to release the rest of this great series which hopefully won't be to long. So for fans of Full Metal Alchemist, Trinity Blood, or Hellsing try this series out you'll be shocked at how much you'll enjoy this show...
