    One of the BEST EVER

    D.Gray-man is one of the few manga that has really grabbed my attention. It's a page turner, trust me. One that gets front seat rows all the time- with me. I got a couple of friends HOOKED to D.Gray-man-which I regret in a way because they read my copies which in turn makes my books age with their skin cells and book spine-bending ways. It's not like Bleach or Naruto, though- it's not filled with useless talking and fillers. Hishino moves the plot along nicely and reveals something new and grappling all the time, too.
    Plot-wise, it's as it says. The story centers around cursed Allen Walker and what happens to him as he tries to save the souls trapped in the mechanical bodies of the Akuma. You learn that Allen's curse is more than it seems, swallowing him in more and more darkness as he tries desperately to save both humankind and the Akuma, and that Allen isn't just a boy exorcist with a parasitic innocence that is his left arm. He isn't the main character for nothing. And he packs a black hole as a stomach. I mean, he can EAT. Like there's no tomorrow. Allen is very likeable and very adorable. He's a strong protagonist who makes his own choices and sticks to them. Oh, there aren't many crybaby characters that just really gets on your nerves that you wish you could pull them out of the page and slap them more than a couple of times. There is violence and blood, like the sword stabbing and punches to multiple faces, but it's expected of an action manga.
    Anyways, I give high praises for D.Gray-man. It won't let you down, action-adventure-fantasy-mystery-violence manga lovers. It sure didn't let me down.

    My Number One!!! This series is ADDICTING!!!

    THE most EPIC manga I have EVER read!!!! I have the paperback version of this amazing series and I'm only on book 16 and I'm pulling my hair out because I want to know what the heck happens and I don't want to get the nook version because then there will be a gap in my collection!!!! I have read a ton of books (both mangas and books) and I have never been more engrossed with the characters or the plot than with THIS series! Forgot Harry Potter, Twilight, and Hunger Games...D. Gray-Man is THE book to rave about PERIOD!!!!! It has everything you need: all of the different types of characters who all have their own unique backstories that you will throw a fit if you can't read the next book to find out (story of my life -_-...but I digress) amazing graphics, epic fight scenes, love interests, and bad guys that are...well, I'm not exactly sure if I should describe them since they tell you in the plot and there's quite a lot of them. It is my #1 manga (and perhaps book) of all time!!! I read and re-read it over again. Why? Because it is THAT amazing! Read it so you can understand what I'm talking about...or read it so you can totally prove me wrong (don't really prove me wrong...otherwise Kanda will kill you with his mighty Mugen! Don't know what I'm talking about? Read the manga and find out! XD)

    PS: Kanda shows up at the end of book one and he makes quite the first impression.

    PSS: I love Lavi!!! ^W^ (he doesn't show up until book three though...)

    Surprised

    D.Gray Man surprised me alot. When I read that it was about a 15 year old exercist named Allen Walker who was deformed at birth and was destined to save mankind from the human soul made weapons called Akuma with the help of his friends? To be completely honest I thought it was going to be the same as every single manga I had ever read in my entire life,because it talks alot about destiny. Well I was DEAD WRONG! This manga was the most amazing manga in the history of mangas! It had alot of interesting adventures and characters that I fell in love with. It had alot of action,humor,horror,fantasy,blood baths,heart warming moments,and moments that will make you cry your eyes out. I deeply regret what I said about it being the same as the rest. It is very unique and original in its own way. The author of this manga did a very good job at keeping me on edge. When I read the first one I was running out the door to go buy the second volume. This manga is amazingly well detailed in art and story plot. It has alot of plot twists and cliff hangers,that will leave you wanting to know more. This manga will leave you at the edge of your seat after every volume. I really started loving it at volime four. That is the volume when my 2 most favorite characters of the series meet for the 1st time and from that point on I was addicted and hooked on this series. If you have ever seen the anime of D.Gray Man and you liked or loved it and you want to know what happens next,read the manga. During the releasing of D.Gray Man the anime I was extreamly excited, for the release. I have watched th entire 103 episodes sadly only seasons 1 and 2 were the only seasons translated into english. Even so I still loved the anime. Still to this day I rewatch the anime over and over and over again and I am never bored,call me crazy but its true. All and all, If you have ever wanted to read this manga? Buy it,Read it,buy the next volume best manga you've ever read. I promise you will not regret or be dissapointed by your purchase.

    D.Gray-Man is a unique manga in a league of its own. None of the

    D.Gray-Man is a unique manga in a league of its own. None of the characters can be classified in specific stereotypes, such as good or bad, black or white, and each of them are likable in their own special ways (Somehow Hoshino-san was able to make even the Millennium Earl likable, and he is the main protagonist). The setting is interesting as well, and is similar to the manga Fullmetal Alchemist. The plot of the series is unpredictable, and keeps readers begging for more. Even if some arcs seem meaningless at the time you read them, the results can lead to an entire change in the story line.

    If you enjoyed reading 07-Ghost, or Fullmetal Alchemist, you are sure to enjoy reading D.Gray-Man as well!

    Has had a few low points during it's run, but definitely one of the best.

    I started reading DGM around 2 years ago after getting caught up on one of the other series I was reading, and had nothing else to do while I waited for the next chapter. I didn't expect anything special, but this quickly became one of my favorites series. The characters are written and fleshed out so well that you really start caring about them, even the antagonists who aren't portrayed as complete monsters, but actual people who care for things and have a goal, just like the Exorcists do. Everyone has their own personality in this series, and most of them are defined enough to make you care about what happens to them. The art is beautiful as well, it's changed a lot between the volume 1 and 23, I think for the better, though the original art style wasn't ugly at all. It's more polished and fluid now, and far more expressive. DGM has had some low points, particularly after it got back from a pretty long hiatus, but it's back in full swing and the author seems to be at the top of her game. I can't count how many times this series has made me almost cry, laugh, or feel scared. It doesn't really stick to one particular genre, and I love that. It never abandons the original plot either, no matter how far it may stray with new arcs, it's always there under the surface which can be hard to manage, but DGM pulls it off almost flawlessly. I'm never bored when I read D. Gray-Man, I can't recommend it enough.

    It's somehow become one of my favorites...ever.

    I figured it was about time to write a little bit about why I love this series and why I hope it'll find its way into the hearts of many more people. So: The Bad: Well, I guess if I separate myself enough from my biased opinion of the series...it is a bit generic in some ways and can have some confusing parts. The good: The art in it is pretty nice, though a bit messy in some fight scenes... It may be a bit generic, but it somehow overcomes how overused some things are and turns itself into a pretty great series. I've yet to be terribly bored during a fight, the series keeps on surprising me, and it can be pretty funny and/or heart-wrenching. It's actually taken the place of Fullmetal Alchemist in my heart.(if anyone who loves FMA is reading this review, you'll probably understand how amazing it is that I look forward to this series more than FMA, now) So for those of you considering buying volume one, I'd just like to say that, I thought volume one was pretty good, but the series starts to get much better, the more you read.(at least in my eyes) So enjoy!

    Okay who would not want to read this? This is one of the greatest books I've ever read. The story line is so creative it blows my mind. Theres always a new conflict thats gets you one the edge of your seat, and you are just so into the book that when your done your like what!? So you run to the store to get the next one to figure out you have no money. So you wait an dream how it will happen next.

    Great manga!

    The new generation of FullMetal Alchemist I say XD If you enjoyed FMA, you willl definetley like this one. Great storyline, great action, a reasonable amount of humor and has a little gothic twist to it. One of the best mangas I've read.
